Israel may have all of the most up to date weapons in the world, but they still could not avoid a serious blow from the newest method of destruction known to the world today: social media.

Silvan Shalom, the Vice Prime Minister of Israel, had his Twitter and Facebook accounts hacked by a rebellious group that calls themselves the ZCompany Hacking Crew.

The hackers utilized Facebook and Twitter to post messages promoting Palestinian liberation, such as changing the Veep’s Facebook cover photo from a meeting between Israeli’ officials to a banner featuring the phrase “Free Palestine.”

Shalom’s Twitter account had by far the most radical comments, making it seem that the Vice President of Israel was calling out the media on its lies, expressing deep sympathy for those in occupation and referring to Benjamin Netanyahu as a “psychopath.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of ZCompany this week, as they have also hacked the website of right-wing English Defence League, putting up messages about boycotting Israel and the American government.

ZCompany believes they are doing the right thing for a noble cause as they have no problem proclaiming who is responsible for such radical behavior, making it a priority to sign their name on the network of each subject they hack.

5 Ways To Stop Making Yourself The Odd One Out In A Group

Football season is hard for me, as I’m not just not a big sports fan. I’m sure it’s a similar feeling to when people discuss politics at work, and you might not be so knowledgable on the topic or care to discuss others’ opinions for lack of interest. Or, say you’re out with a bunch […]
