Anonymous Goes After Israel Through Twitter
Hacktivism comes in many forms these days. It’s not just about DDoS attacks on government websites or hacking into these sites to post messages against them. Sometimes, it’s more mainstream. In this case, Anonymous is going after Israel using Twitter.
Using the hashtag #OpBOYCOTTIsrael, the group is trying to raise awareness about the things that Israel does to the Palestinians in occupied territories. Their goal is to promote a BDS movement (boycotts, divestment, and sanctions) that will force Israel to rethink their actions.
As it was said in the Bible that all nations will come against Israel. We’ve already seen it starting across the world. Even the United States is quickly turning its back on them.
Here are some examples of recent Tweets on the hashtag:
