“Through the use of media deception and political bribery, you have amassed the sympathies of many. You claim to be democratic, yet in reality this is far from the truth. In fact, your only goal is to better the lives of a select few while carelessly trampling the liberties of the masses,” says the clip's computer-generated narrator over ominous background music.
The video also makes reference to the possibility of an Israeli strike on Iran, claiming that Israel has “taken steps to ensure a nuclear holocaust,” and that it will not be allowed “to attack a sovereign country based u
Israel's cyber defense among world's best, new study shows
The report emphasizes the paradox that information security experts repeat over and over: the more a country depends on technology and computers, the more vulnerable it is to attacks. On the other hand, progress in the realm of computer security allows experts to better understand existing threats.
According to Isaac Ben-Israel, senior security advisor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a professor at Tel Aviv University, Israel sees approximately 1,000 hacking attempts every minute, although it is able to block most of them. And although hacking groups such as Anonymous are able to cause minimal damage, the greatest threats come from “states and major crime organizations.”
Ben-Israel further emphasized the vulnerability of computer security systems, stating that “a cyber-war can inflict the same type of damage as a conventional war,” saying that cyber technology can bring down power and water supplies “without firing a single bullet.”

You don't shout "Boo" in a situation like that if you don't want the shooting to start.
Say Israel treats it as an Iranian attack under cover of the Anonymous name. Then, of course, Israel attacks Iran, maybe blowing up one of its computer centers. Well, there you go and let me know when it's safe to come out.
Anonymous is not a freedom or democracy advocacy group, nor is Anonymous the slightest bit interested in promoting free speech, that doesn't agree with its own nebulous, ill-stated, and often contradictory goals and talking point propaganda. Quite the opposite, Anonymous seeks to silence dissent both within and without the group and has demonstrated no qualms about openly using the digital online equivalent of terrorist tactics and lynch mobs to achieve this silence.
