Jew-Hating Hackers Attack Pollard Web Site
Justice4JP Release - December 21, 2004
Ma'ariv, Ha'aretz, Arutz7 and others, today carried reports of an anti-Semitic attack on the FreePollard.org web site, the Hebrew language web site affiliated with Justice for Jonathan Pollard. As a result of the hacking and the ensuing publicity, FreePollard.org received thousands of additional hits today.
The hackers, identified by Ha'aretz as "most likely Moslem extremists," replaced the FreePollard home page with anti-Semitic slogans and photos which equate Zionism with Nazism. They also hotlinked the site to a notorious anti-Semitic web site.
At the bottom of the home page hackers left a message in English, raging at Jonathan Pollard for protecting Israel from "the revenge of the Jihad." They slammed his having saved the Jewish State from destruction by alerting it to the plans of Saddam Hussein:
"There was a great opportunity to destroy the Zionist State! The great hero from Iraq was ready to kill all the rats with the holy weapon of Jihad. [But, Pollard] leaked the secrets and the Zio-nazis protected themselves!"
Adi Ginzburg, speaking on behalf of FreePollard.org said: "It is a bitter irony, that the hackers - like all of the basest, most vile enemies of the Jewish State - clearly recognize how much Jonathan Pollard did for Israel. But the Government of Israel and the American Jewish leaders, who truly owe Pollard a debt of gratitude, do not. They continue their twenty-year policy of betrayal and abandonment towards him."
