back to article Muslim vid protest hackers turn web-flood hosepipe away from US banks

Islamist hackers busy blasting bank websites with network traffic have suspended their assault after a controversial anti-Muslim video ceased to be available through YouTube. The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters crew launched a series of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks in September and December, with the stated …

I am sick to death of other religions trying to impose their often twisted views of religion onto others.

If you want to abide by some quite frankly way off the reservation religions then do so, just do it in peace and do not try to impose it on me. Yes that goes for you too Jehovah witnesses.

Yes.

It appears the supreme being has taken on the form of a large beach pebble that sits on my desk (with various papers underneath that it is examining).

I always ask if it objects to any important actions I'm planning to take. It has never demurred, so I know I am doing the right thing and am (apparently) never wrong.

PS. have an upvote to compensate for the downvote you got from some humorless individual.

We really

Shouldn't criticise such caring and tolerant religions.

I am not surprised that proponents, supporters, believers of/in Islamic fundamentalism are angry.

How would you like your actions and beliefs to be exposed for what they actually are?

</sarcasm>

Who is to blame if a person cannot see beyond their indoctrination?

Madrassas. OFSTED. The Police. Gubmint ...

Everyone is ultimately collectively responsible but the real finger pointing won't start until it's beyond too late.

Sad icon because, well, you know.

bring back the crusades

It appears we have a major problem now. We have UK women standing around demanding Islamic law in the UK, we have no go areas in our cities for non-muslims, women being hounded in central London for not being covered up, no alcolhol on these muslim street signs in the capital, we have them dictating what media can have (from cartoons which to be honest were bloody accurate to youtube videos), we have them telling us what we can and can't do - while at the same time demanding compensation for being asked questions when they've been shooting our soldiers, demanding money, arms and other interventions in the middle east.

To be honest we should help in Syria - we should help the government regain control. Similarly we should replace the current regime in Egypt.

To be honest, the UK is (whether they like it or not) historically vaguely Christian, largely agnostic. If they don't like that then they are welcome to leave and move to a muslim country - there are plenty of them.

I am not a guy that usually gives a damn about what other people do - whether they are homosexuals, religious nutters, stupid politicians even rude ignorant bankers don't bother me, but I am finally getting sick of this.

Um it didn't work out well for the Christians last time did it?

Mmm, but they didn't turn up with Apache gunships.

Not that I'm advocating it. Just saying that the military balance was more even then.

I would assume the reason they did not DDOS YouTube…

Is that they don't have enough resources for it. Considering the onslaught of viewers all over the globe looking for cat videos, it must be hard to make a dent.

Re: I would assume the reason they did not DDOS YouTube…

Either that, or because while the DDOSers most certainly aren't using the various online banking resources, they didn't want to disrupt their regular viewing of those cat videos themselves.

Isn't there a simple solution to the whole affair? Just DDOS the hell out of any and all muslim-controlled banks whenever an anti-western or anti-jewish or anti-christian (etc) video crops up online. Oh, wait-that would mean half of Africa, Iran and the arabian peninsula as well as large parts of asia would be out of the economy. for a loooooooooong time.

Remind me: when did nonviolent direct action become evil?

And thus we show that the basic premise behind their action was correct: their attack did make enough people care to get Google to do something about it.

To be honest, I can't see the problem with this. Sure, someone has the right to make this infantile 'trailer' (for a movie that was never going to be made, mind you), and they have every right to put it on YouTube. BUT by the same token, every Muslim in the world also has the right to make their feelings known about it, and to protest by whatever means they can get away with.

So long as no-one actually gets hurt or robbed, fair play to them. I have no problem at all with Google caving in to massive public pressure. Even if it is coming from TEH MOSLUM MENACETM!

It's not "massive public pressure". It's bullying by a tiny number of unrepresentative extremists.
