Islamic Jihad claims to be the victim of a brutal attack:

A Palestinian terrorist group accused American and Israeli groups Saturday of hacking its Web site to pieces.

Islamic Jihad, which has carried out suicide bombings in Israel, said the unidentified groups had destroyed the site to silence "the Palestinian voice."

It said this was not the first time its site had been attacked by unidentified "Zionist and American quarters."

Poor little terrorists. It may take a few hours -- even a whole day -- to fix their little website. The usual Palestinian method of hacking, however, is more difficult to repair ... as we’ve just been reminded:

A suicide bombing on a crowded Jerusalem bus Sunday morning killed at least seven people and wounded 44 others, police and rescue workers said.

The huge blast went off around 8:30 a.m. in the middle of the morning rush hour as the bus drove past a gas station. The explosion ripped apart the back of bus and scattered body parts and shattered glass across a two block radius.

Rescue workers at the scene were placing body parts into body bags.

Hacked to pieces.

If it were another group, I might believe they were hacked .. altho. not necessarily by who they claim.

Based upon the tendency this group has to blame others for their own problems, I suspect someone at their own site screwed up and they are just doing what comes naturally to them .. blame the 'nasty Zionist Jooos and/or the evil Americans'.

(Their site *would* be a tempting one for hackers, so maybe I'm wrong. If so, I hope a virus or Trojan was left behind and whoever did it can't be traced.)

palestinians let's get it right, we are talking about descendants of Ottoman Turks -thus not semitic poeple full stop, and those of Arab descent who, while a semitic people, are not, historically at all Palestinian. Palestine was the name for the terriotory of the Jewish people.

To disitngushish between the gentilic usage of Jew and it is usage as the name for all adherents of Judaism: when the name Israel was chosen for modern Israel it was to underpin that disitnction.
The whole notion of Plaestinians and Palestinian Homeland/Territory/Country, whatever, is utter garbage: for the only people ity properly denotes is the Jewsh people and what is their country, fullstop.

This had to have been Bush, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft. Who else could launch such a horrifying unilateral attack on the website of The Religion Of Peace???

We've been told by the Left, ad nauseaum, that these people are so poor and oppressed that suicide mass-murders are their only remaining means of speaking out on their plight. But here we see that they have computers. Interesting.

I suppose their culture's chief contribution to computer technology was the decimal - but that was a loooong time ago.

No, The decimal system is Indian, the ancient Arabs took it over and exported it.
