Hackers deface Google Palestine, demand Israel removed from maps

(RT) Google’s local Palestine domain was defaced by hacker-activists, with its homepage being replaced with a message calling for the removal of “Israel” from Google Maps and its being renamed “Palestine.”

Google.ps – which has since returned to its usual look – was reportedly suspended Tuesday following the attack.

Earlier, at the defaced website, renamed by hackers “Google Owned,” their statement was posted, reading: “uncle google we say hi from palestine to remember you that the country in google map not called israel. its called Palestine”. (Original spelling preserved.)

The hackers also posted a Google Map image that showed Israeli borders, the West Bank and Gaza, but does not outline Palestinian territory. It was not entirely clear why, given that Google had created a domain for Palestine in 2009.

The screenshot was accompanied with the following: “#Question : what would happens if we changed the country title of Isreal to Palestine in google maps !!! it would be revolution.”

“So Listen to rihanna and be cool :P,” concluded the hackers, who signed their statement as users Dod, Hij@ker, alzher, Mr_AnarShi-T, and toxico-dz.

Google officials said that their own servers were not hacked. Instead, Google’s Palestinian domain was hijacked, redirecting web-surfers to another Internet site.
