Iran Launches Major CyberAttack on Israeli Sites By Avi Abelow - May 21, 2020

Iranian hackers launched a massive cyberattack this morning on Israel, taking down thousands of Israeli websites. This video u just saw, showing the destruction of Israel by missile attacks, appeared on all the hacked websites together with other messages and links about Israel’s destruction.

This is Avi Abelow for today’s Pulse of Israel. We work hard to ensure that you receive the true updates and inspirational videos about Israel and the Jewish people. To help us cover our growing costs please consider a tax-deductible donation. Just visit www.PulseofIsrael.com

Among the thousands of hacked websites are some belonging to local municipalities, popular restaurant chains, several NGOs, and Member of parliaments etc. Thankfully there was no serious damage done to any essential services or infrastructure.

This is following an Iranian cyberattack on the official Israeli water network in April and for a cyberattack on Iran’s Shahid Rajaee port last week. Iran blamed Israel for the cyberattack on the port Which caused massive backups on Iranian waterways and roads leading to the facility.

The Israel National Cyber Bureau, the government agency tasked with protecting Israel from hacking attacks,

confirmed that “a host of Israeli websites were hacked in the morning hours in a suspected Iranian cyber-attack.”

As we approach the 53rd anniversary of the Jewish State of Israel liberating Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights during the miraculous 6 day war, we have one message for the Islamic Republic of Iran. You will not scare us and you will not destroy us. The Jewish people are home for good!

I’d think of all the people you’d probably be best off not cyber-messing with, it would be Israel.

Iran has a very serious CVirus crisis with many deaths...and they’re screwing around in their mamas’ basements attacking Israel?!

what a completely degenerated society (and Iran has had periods of historic greatness and I don’t refer to their ancient conquest, which they’re trying to relive, but their culture, Iran was once a civilized country!)

Persia playing the part of Haman invoking their own demise/harm according to scripture. One day, the LORD Himself will answer them.

Zechariah 12:2-3:

“Behold, I am about to make Jerusalem a cup of staggering to all the surrounding peoples. The siege of Jerusalem will also be against Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.”

Years ago, Iran practiced assaulting the Temple Mount with a model of the DOR.

They are walking right into a fight with the Lord. They will lose.

This is not new. Iran has been using soft attacks for over 10 years.

Hacker culture in Iran dates back to the turn of the millennium. Ashiyane, an Iranian security forum still used today, was founded in 2002.

They have been openly attacking since 2012:

Shamoon Attack Of 2012 and 2016
DDoS attacks 2012-13
New York Dam Hack 2013
2019 Attacks On Australian Parliament House

Iran cyber attacks are multifaceted due to sponsorship of proxy groups. Iran’s chain of loyal proxies religiously fight Iran’s geopolitical rivals with the funds, technologies and arms that Iran provides them with. They even have their own VPN.

To this day, the Iranian government uses hacker forums for recruitment whenever they need an emergency workforce.

Iran has been hacking Israel for years and has gone after infrastructure in the country many times. But the latest one is worse...they tried to, and almost did, hack into Israel’s missile warning system and the military had to scramble to stop it. Been going on for years.

Iran must be trying to do a bit of disruption because (according to AP) Hezbollah and Israel are about to get into war.

Take out their water after that.

I know some Freepers support the Iranian people. I just can't find it in me when they refuse to fight for their own freedom. It's not our job to do so. As long as Islamic Republic of Iran is our enemy and an enemy of our sole ally in the region I will consider the people of Iran an enemy. Let them die of thirst in the dark.

Wishful thinking. Take a number. Get in line. Persians again? Well, every 2500 years or so, you would want another crack at it. Wait for your number to be called. Dustbin of history is that way.
