In a series of attacks it’s calling “OpIsrael,” Anonymous went on a spree of website defacement and takedown attacks Thursday, calling on members to flood forty sites with junk web traffic designed to knock them offline and defacing websites including the privacy firm Israeli Security Academy and a blog the group described as belonging to the Israeli Defense Forces. “We Anonymous will not sit back and watch a cowardly Zionist State demolish innocent people’s lives.” reads one message posted to a defaced site, along with an image of smoke rising over what appears to be a Palestinian city.

Anonymous is everyone. Anonymous is no one.
It could be Hamas and Hezbollah command and their media wings putting out propaganda or it could be legitimate hacktivists using the name for this operation...or it could be a couple 13yr old kids with nothing better to do than screw with Israel because they figure it's cool and somehow useful.
Personally, I think Anonymous has been right AND wrong so much (and usually wrong) with SO many empty threats, missed deadlines and general bluster that the name itself means about as much now as Al Qaeda. It's a nice umbrella term, but can mean basically anyone doing anything when it comes down to it, IMO.

Palestine doesn't have it's own nation. They're basically imprisoned on a small strip of land which is progressively being stolen by Israel. Which is why I imagine they side with the Palestinians.
