Turkish Hackers Hack The Times of Israel


As of now, this is what you see when you visit the Times of Israel website.

With some really bad music blaring in the background.

The green text at the bottom is a verse from the Quran (Surah 2. Al-Baqara, Ayah 57)

This verse is referring to the Children of Israel, who G-d protected while we were in the desert. Why the hackers picked this verse, I am not sure. Perhaps they are implying we wronged ourselves somehow.

(Very odd for them to pick a verse that acknowledges we have been in this land for way longer than the palestinian Arabs, given this hack is clearly motivated by their pro palestinian proclivities)

Funnily enough, I have been very outspoken about the fact that I think the Times of Israel actually wrongs Israel. Not that I support this hacking, or am behind this.

Even though I am apparently quite the hacker!
