Anonymous declares war on Israel
Comment: I don't think that Anonymous has the means to seriously hurt Israel, but the real effect of this operation is a PR disaster for Israel: Israel is denounced as a villain (which, of course, it is) while the world public opinion is shown as disgusted by Israel (which, of course, it is). And that, in itself, is fantastic. Anonymous simply ignores the fact that most of the planet is run by US puppets and Anonymous ignores the corporate media. It claims to speak for "the people" as opposed to the Establishment, and the message is clear: "Israel, the people see you for what you are, and we will fight you with all we have".
Symbols are very important, and this action, even if primarily symbolic, is very timely, needed and just.
