Anonymous statement on the Gaza ceasefire – We stand down

Greetings citizens of the world,

For the past week, we in Anonymous have come together with many other allied cyber-activist groups from around the globe to conduct Operation Israel. Our mission was three-fold, and clearly stated: to do everything in our power to keep the innocent people of Gaza connected to the world, to interfere with the brutal aggression aimed at them by the IDF – and to help give a voice to the voiceless. We feel that we have succeeded in these goals.

We are gratified and immensely relieved, as is everyone in the world – to hear of the announced cease fire between Hamas and the IDF. No one in the world desires a just and lasting peace more than Anonymous. While we in the collective have no problem interfering in war, we do NOT believe it is productive to interfere with peace. We will therefore stand down immediately from all further cyber attacks upon the IDF or Israel so as not to risk this delicate and perilous cease fire arrangement. Likewise, we encourage all those cyber groups who have joined with us to also cease and desist now from aggressive acts, and give this cease-fire a chance. We ask this NOT on behalf or for the benefit of either the government of Israel, or Hamas – but we beg it of you on behalf of the innocent people of Gaza, that they may no longer be slaughtered with impunity.

But let no one misunderstand us. Anonymous will continue to monitor the Internet and other communications lines into and out of Gaza. We will continue to watch closely BOTH sides in this war. And we will continue to advocate by all peaceful means at our disposal for a just and lasting peace for Palestine and Israel, as well as the entire world. We will be vigilant, we will be active. Operation Israel is NOT going anywhere, and the innocent people of Gaza will never be alone again. Let this Operation be an object lesson to any government or entity anywhere who believes they can turn off the Internet…

    Thank you

    You have no Idea how relieved this makes my fellow Anons who support Israel.

    We Identify with Anonymous, and these past few days have been difficult for us, knowing that we are Anonymous, but Anonymous was attacking Israel.

    We feel substantially better, no longer needing to feel torn between Anonymous and Israel.

    We do, however, encourage Anonymous to keep being vigilant , as has been called for in the address above. No voice should ever be stifled and no innocent life should ever be taken.

    It is good to be able to Identify, proudly, as Anonymous once more

    I wonder what shit is this?

    Israel is the most war hungry nation (government) in the world. Who the hell can honestly support IS – RA – EL if you know all the facts.

    Not saying to go all out on it all the time but know your facts god dam.
