Jihad on the internet

The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians seems to have moved, at least in part, to the digital front. In response to an operation by Israel Defense Forces, Islamic hackers took down greater than 700 sites with the extension. The sites were replaced with the message "Hacked By Team-Evil Arab hackers u KIll palestin people we kill Israel servers".

I can only see something like this expanding in the future to become even more widespread and common. While from here in the states it may not seem too dire, if our banks and hospitals sites are going down in addition to other companies there could be serious problems.
