Jewish group claims Hamas hacked its website


The website of the Jewish People Policy Institute was hacked Thursday by a group that the institute claims is affiliated with Hamas.

The JPPI, a Jerusalem-based think tank that focuses on the Jewish future and Israel’s security, issued a statement saying hackers took over its website, then posted a picture of an Israeli tank and a Palestinian child on the English section, and removed a recently uploaded assessment and analysis documents.

The documents that were removed were written by JPPI’s senior staff, including a paper dealing with the participation of world Jewry in decisions relating to the political process, a document concerning the deligitimization of Israel,  an assessment of the situation of European Jewry, and a document summarizing the discussion of Israel’s controversial Conversion Law and its ramifications.

JPPI is claiming that the group that hacked its site has ties to Hamas.

“The hackers’ website is identified with the Hamas movement and we know for sure that they are operating from the Gaza Strip,” a spokesman for the JPPI told JTA.
