Anti-Islam film Arab Electronic Army attacks Western websites
One of the hackers, who identified himself as Ridouan from Morocco, wrote in an email sent to Al Arabiya English that the hacking operations were part of a “campaign to defend Allah’s Prophet.”
“The army was recently formed and we have started to work as a team after we used to work individually.”
He identified some of his fellow hackers as Abdel Haq from Morocco , Saudi Hacker (wesker Hacker) Alaa from Syria (Alaa Alsory), Khaled from Syria (Connect-r Syrian).
“The hacking operations are of course a response to the offense against the prophet, peace and blessing be upon him.” Ridouan, the spokesman for the group, explained that after he proposed the idea of forming an “electronic army” he received wide support from young Muslim hackers to “repel all offenses against our religion.”
In one of the websites the hackers placed a verse from the Holy Qur’an and a video titled “the absolute truth about Muhammad in the bible with Arabic subtitles.”
He explained that the group has plans to attack and hack more websites in order “to deliver the message to whom it may concern.”—AP
