The hacktivist group Anonymous is angry at Israel, and not just for launching deadly airstrikes on Gaza. Members say the Israeli government "crossed a line in the sand" when it threatened to sever internet and other telecommunications in Gaza.

In a press statement published online, Anonymous issued a warning to the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and the Israeli government, ordering them to not shut down the internet in the occupied territories and to cease and desist from their “terror upon the innocent people of Palestine.”

In a tweet, the collective condemned Israel, saying it has broken 65 UN resolutions with no consequences. It then compared the situation to Iraq, which was “invaded, bombed, and destroyed” for breaking two resolutions.

Anonymous’ online statement warned the Israeli government: “Like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will not survive it unscathed.”

The statement then turned into a message of support for the people of Gaza saying that “We will do everything in our power to hinder the evil forces of the IDF arrayed against you.”

"Know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight. We will use all our resources to make certain you stay connected to the internet and remain able to transmit your experiences to the world,” the statement said.

And it seems their words are being matched with actions.

Anonymous has put together a “Gaza Care Package,” which contains instructions in Arabic and English to assist Palestinians in the event that the Israeli government threatens their internet connection.

The package also includes information on evading IDF surveillance, along with first aid information.

The collective encouraged Palestinians to download and share the package with others. Those behind the project have vowed to expand and improve the document in coming days.

“No matter how dark it may seem, no matter how alone and abandoned you may feel – know that tens of thousands of us in Anonymous are with you and working tirelessly around the clock to bring you every aid and assistance that we can,” the statement said.

Members are taking a more direct approach too, by contacting Israeli forces directly.

A tweet from an Anonymous account to an IDF spokesperson warned, “It would be wise of you to expect us.”

Anonymous has already hacked a number of Israeli websites, including advocate-israel.com. Visitors to the page see a scrolling banner which says the site was hacked by the “MexicanH Team.”

A statement on the webpage says, “Stop bombing Gaza. Millions of Israelis and Palestinians are lying awake, exposed and terrified.”

The problem is that the plaestinians want their own country Yet do not want their own infrastructure? One country does not HAVE to provide anything to another. Instead of complaining why not help them get their own internet connections. Say through Egypt.

This also goes for electric and water. Once you become your own country you will have to provide all this yourself

Not being funny but from what I've seen of anonymous before I would imagine this amounts to err... nothing?

The Palestinians WANT to provide all their own services. The problem is that Israel refuses to allow them to operate as an independent state, crippling their access to food, water and medical supplies, as well as communications and financial services. Israel controls all the borders.

Israel is an apartheid state.

Go away, Anonymous . If anyone ever took you seriously, they don't any more.

Does the killing of three Israelis really justify the carpet bombing of Gaza and the military shelling of school children?

And what does Iraq have to do with anything? Yes that conflict was wrong, but that has nothing to do with this.
