Hamas Calls for Escalation in Internet Hacking Against Israel

The Palestinian Hamas movement called for an escalation of Internet hacking against Israel, saluting Arab programmers who have managed to infiltrate Israeli computer systems.

“Penetrating Israeli websites means opening a new field of resistance and the beginning of an electronic war against Israeli occupation,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said today in a statement e-mailed to reporters in the Gaza Strip.

In recent weeks, computer hackers claiming to be from Saudi Arabia obtained and publicly posted the confidential information of Israeli citizens, including credit-card details. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu established a National Cyber Directorate in August to guard against infiltration of the country’s government and business computer systems.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, is considered a terrorist organization by Israel, the U.S. and the European Union.
