Hackers sabotage Arab-language ‘hasbara’ site

Hackers sabotage Arab-language ‘hasbara’ site

An Arab-language Web site dedicated to presenting Western and Israeli news stories to the Arab world was hacked on Sunday morning by a group signing off as “Gaza lovers.”

The site,, edited by former ambassador to Egypt Zvi Mazel and maintained by The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, was reduced to a black screen featuring a photograph of an Arab terrorist brandishing a weapon.

Visitors were unable to access the site, hacked by a group calling itself “The C-H-Team,” and were instead faced with an abusive paragraph in broken Hebrew referring to the site staff as “children of monkeys and pigs.” The hacking was discovered on Sunday morning by the Web site team at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. The Internet supplier was working to restore the site.
