Lebanese hackers are able to penetrate some Israeli websites that are connected to the Israeli government.  As you can see they take much pride in what they are able to accomplish.

The Future Is Now

Well, all we can say is bring it on.  Let the games begin.  In truth, Israel has been far and away ahead of these games in the last few decades.  This is due in large part to the fact that Israel recognized very early on that the cyber battle would unquestionably be one of the main – if not the main – battlefield of the future.  Now, whenever the world hears about an Iranian scientist who disappears or a bug that sets back the Iranian scientists, a few million Israelis smirk.  They know that it is the cyber warriors who have won another round in the battle.  This happens in Israel all of the time.

The Best – To the Cyber Units

For the first few decades of the State of Israel, one of the most famous sayings in the Army was, “The Best – To the Air Force.”  To a certain extent, that is still the case.  However, today, there is another saying that many understand is just as true – “The Best – To the Cyber Units.”  Israel needs hackers – good hackers.  Israel is a country where there are more computers per capita than perhaps any other country in the world.  Therefore, it is no surprise that there are a few hundred top of the line Israeli hackers.  In addition, since so many hi-tech companies are also looking for top of the line computer whizzes, the draw to the younger generation is strong.

Sp, a few Lebanese hackers may be able to do some cute magic tricks.  But the real battles are not about penetrating a relatively insignificant government website.  It’s about penetrating top secret sensitive activity of the enemy.  I’ll bet on the Israeli hackers any day of the year.
