At 10:17 PM ET, the site that I have been regularly checking to get news on events unfolding between Israelis and Palestinians has been hacked by Israeli hackers.

The site,, has functioned as a sort of aggregate of information that reflects a Palestinian voice not heard in the mainstream news media. 

The site now shows two crude cartoons posted by the Israeli hackers.

Both cartoons make the point that Palestinians use women and children as human shields when fighting Israelis. 

I recently mentioned that this is a lie. As explained by Jeremy Hammond in an article posted on titled, "Top 5 Lies About Israel's Assault on Gaza":

There has been no evidence that Hamas has used human shields. The fact is, as previously noted, Gaza is a small piece of property that is densely populated. Israel engages in indiscriminate warfare such as the assassination of Nizar Rayan, in which members of his family were also murdered. It is victims like his dead children that Israel defines as “human shields” in its propaganda. There is no legitimacy for this interpretation under international law. In circumstances such as these, Hamas is not using human shields, Israel is committing war crimes in violation of the Geneva Conventions and other applicable international law.

As of now, no articles or editorials on can be accessed.

You can send messages to (no joke) if you would like to respond to this hacking by "Israeli hackers." 

When is fully restored, I will post a notice. Until then, let this be a sign of the hatred, ignorance, and misunderstanding that exists which negatively impacts Palestinians and Israelis on a daily basis and which fuels the violent conflict in the Middle East right now.
