Flotilla Clash and the Social Media War

Since the Flotilla incident about 2 weeks ago, we’ve been witnessing many clashes over the net between both sides, especially between the Israelis and the Turks; most of which have been over the social networks e.g. Facebook.

Several Israeli websites have been hacked by Turkish hackers and political messages and pictures were planted instead of the original content.

In the last couple of days we started to see Israeli facebook accounts that were hacked by Turkish hackers, changing the profile pictures to the Palestinian Authority flag and to caricatures related to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. In some cases messages like “Free Palestine” were added to the status text of users whose accounts were hacked, and links to streaming movies about the Turkish army were planted.
