The Likud Party's official Web site was hacked into twice Monday morning 
by Palestinian activists seeking to display political messages. The 
messages appeared primarily in English, although some were in Hebrew and 
Arabic. The main banner on the hacked page displayed an English message, 
"Only free men can negotiate," above a line that read, "Palestine. Dying 
to live," accompanied by the image of a Palestinian flag.

According to a Likud spokesperson, the first hacking took place at 5 
a.m., and then again at 11:30 a.m. after the site had been restored to 
normal. The group responsible for the breach called themselves "Cold 
z3ro - Team Hell Crew."
