Hackers Post Anti-Semitism On U.S. Universities’ Websites

Update — 12/04/14: ADL alerted Face­book about the “AnonG­host Team” page. The page has been removed. 

The hacker group AnonG­host Team claimed respon­si­bil­ity for the hack­ing of sev­eral Amer­i­can uni­ver­si­ties’ web­sites, includ­ing those of Port­land State Uni­ver­sity, Utah State Uni­ver­sity, Olin Col­lege of Engi­neer­ing, Stan­ford Uni­ver­sity, Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­sity in St. Louis and other edu­ca­tional insti­tu­tions in the U.S.anon-ghost-hack

The hack­ings redi­rected web­site vis­i­tors either to pages play­ing a record­ing of the Quran and fea­tur­ing a mes­sage in Eng­lish that starts with an anti-Semitic pro-terror state­ment, “Death to All Jews…Viva Hamas, Qas­sam” or to a page fea­tur­ing anti-Israel images and play­ing a pro-Qassam anti-Semitic song with the lyrics, “Teach the son of the Jew­ish woman how many times we will con­quer him.”

These hack­ings rep­re­sent part of a grow­ing phe­nom­e­non of hacker groups direct­ing web­site vis­i­tors to anti-Semitic and anti-Israel mes­sages.…

Marginal Anti-Israel Group Alters Holocaust Photo to Condemn Israel

A Face­book group called “I Acknowl­edge Apartheid Exists,” with over 91,000 fans, recently posted a pho­to­shopped pic­ture of Holo­caust sur­vivors hold­ing signs that read “Stop the Holo­caust in Gaza,” “Gaza, the world’s biggest con­cen­tra­tion camp,” “Stop U.S. aid to Israel,” and “Break the silence on Gaza!!” Below the pic­ture was text that stated, “What­ever hap­pened to ‘Never again?’” [sic].i-acknowledge-apartheid-exists

The “I Acknowl­edge Apartheid Exists” group was founded on March 30, 2013 and its admin­is­tra­tors fre­quently post images that dele­git­imize Israel and describe it as a “ter­ror­ist nation.” Recent posts include an image that described the State of Israel as “Nazi Israel” and another that stated “End geno­cide in Gaza.” Other posts ended with hash­tags such as “#StopTheNazis” and “#StopIsrael.”

The group’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Direc­tor, Derek Hum­mel, told TheRealNews.com in an April 2013 inter­view that the page was briefly shut down by Face­book because of com­plaints that were sub­mit­ted by users who were offended by con­tent that the group was post­ing.…

In a state­ment on the Anony­mous Arab Face­book page, the group threat­ened to launch “elec­tronic attacks against as many Israeli web­sites as pos­si­ble.” The group also threat­ens Israeli cit­i­zens: “Your credit cards, your bank accounts, your servers … are ALL in a danger!”

Last year, Anony­mous Arab issued a sim­i­lar warn­ing around the same time to “wipe Israel off the Inter­net.
