Many in “Anonymous” are pro-Palestinian, some are even Islamist radicals. Really takes a lot of nerve to attack a charity that helps sick kids. This is part of a greater continuing attack against Israel which Anonymous refers to as #OpIsrael. They threaten to “disrupt and erase Israel from cyberspace”.

The hackers’ group Anonymous said Saturday that its planned attack on Israel has begun and will intensify Sunday. One of its prime targets is a website for an NGO that assists children with cancer.
The group announced that 19,000 Israeli Facebook accounts have already been hacked. In addition it said, personal details of students from Haifa University have been compromised, as have hundreds of passwords to Israeli email accounts.
Several dozen sites belonging to Israeli NGOs have been damaged, the web vandals claimed, including that of Larger than Life, an NGO for children with cancer.
“The website of Larger than Life has been under attack from pro-Palestinian hackers for a week,” Larger than Life wrote on its Facebook page Thursday, “and every day they take down our site and plant different content – flags, a skull, symbols and all sorts of hate-related things.”
