A ring-wing Israeli group hacked into websites of organizations and 
activist groups Thursday, including those of the armed wing of Hamas, 
Izzadin Kassam, and left-wing Israeli organizations. The group of 
hackers, calling themselves the 'Extremist Zealots,' boasted that they 
had broken into numerous sites.

Izzadin Kassam's site displayed a blank white screen and Hebrew text 
notifying of a technical error.

The websites of Arab Israeli political party Balad, and left-wing 
activist groups 'Hagada Hasmolanit' and 'Occupation' featured a black 
background with an Israeli flag, and the emblem of the 'Extremist 
Zealots' group, similar to that of Meir Kahane's Kach movement.

The lyrics from the Israeli national anthem 'Hatikva' were also posted 
on the sites in Hebrew, as well as pictures of Palestinian babies 
dressed as suicide bombers with the caption, 'Murderers from Birth.'

A short explanation, also in Hebrew, saying that the websites had been 
hacked into also appeared, however the sites all restored their original 
content within hours of being sabotaged.
