Hackers hijack and deface Google Palestine

Hackers hijacked and rerouted Google’s Palestine domain to a different server apparently in objection to labelling of Palestinian territories as Israel in Google Maps.

The group Hackteach claimed responsibility and left a message on the homepage.

“uncle google we say hi from palestine to remember you that the country in google map not called israel. its called Palestine,” the statement read.“#Question : what would happens if we changed the country title of Isreal to Palestine in google maps !!! it would be revolution ..So Listen to rihanna and be cool :P.”

Earlier in May, Google changed the tagline on homepage of its Palestinian edition from “Palestinian territories” to “Palestine” in line with the UN’s decision last year upgrading the Palestinians’ status to “non-member observer state.”
