The JC Hacked!!

A huge thank you to Blazing Cat Fur who brought this to my attention, complete with screen shots! (click on the link and check it out!)

SMW buys a copy of The Jewish Chronicle almost every week at the grocery store, but for those of you who may not have heard of it:
The world's oldest and most influential Jewish newspaper, the London-based Jewish Chronicle has a 164-year history of editorial independence. Its news and opinion pages reflect the entire spectrum of Jewish religious, social and political thought from left to right, Orthodox to secular while its arts and lifestyle coverage includes film, theatre, travel, cookery and youth & singles events.

Earlier today the site was hacked and below is part of the message put up on the homepage (as shown in screenshot at Blazing Cat Fur):
Aren't you ashamed of giving to tolerance to Jewish who is main actor of wars with being of children killers? Arent you ashamed of giving support to vampire who doesn't care any human life? Aren't you ashamed of showing respect to Jewish who makes revenge, hatred and rivality feelings between the people?
And of their taking usury when they were forbidden it, and of their devouring people's wealth by false pretenses. We have prepared for those who disbelieve a painful doom. (Nisa 161)
And incline not toward those who do wrong lest the Fire touch you, and ye have no protecting friends against Allah, and afterward ye would not be helped. (Hud 113)

Interesting little op-ed.

The JIDF has more:
The ironic thing is that the JC oftentimes seems to be on the side of those who hacked them! In any event, these "hackers" seem to be from Turkey (

YNet's website was also hacked just a few weeks ago. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm......a new pattern?
