Jerusalem–In a joint statement, B’Tselem and Rabbis For Human Rights lambasted  credible reports that Israel’s juvenile justice system forced at-risk youth to spend time with MK Hanin Zoabi (Balad).  Israel’s version of the “Scared Straight” program popularized in the United States starting in the 1970’s was condemned by Rabbis for Human Rights’ Stanley Finkelstein; “This sort of disproportionate response by Israeli authorities cannot stand.  It does not contribute to peace, and I am going to catch hell from the Oxfam guys during tomorrow’s monthly Board Meeting at the Ann Arbor Food Co-Op”.  Shuki Cohen, Spokesman for Israel’s Department for Juvenile Justice defended the practice, stating “We just wanted to scare the kids with a really unpleasant experience, but without all the creepy ‘Tossed Salad’ references from the American version.”

MK Zoabi, for her part reacted angrily to the effort, stating “I do not recognize the legitimacy of this action by the Fascist Government and I do not recognize this interview conducted by the Occupier. ” Then she shoved us and stormed off.

Tel Aviv–According to published reports, the cyber attack branch of the Izz ad-Din al Qassam Brigades successfully penetrated the website of HOT Cable’s Customer Service Office.  However, upon review of the options provided to customers on the website, the hackers chose to leave the site as is.  A Field Commander known simply as Abu Ali stated “We really wanted to hit the Zionist enemy hard by changing the site so it left him feeling confused, helpless, and angry.  But like our friends on the Flotilla said, ‘That ship has sailed “. In a possible sign of rapprochement between peoples, Abu Ali noted “HOT Telecom? They’re OK, for a pack of perfidious Jews“.

When pressed for future operational plans, Hamas stated that they intended to hack into Orange Telecom, Bank Leumi, and the Ministry of Religious Service’s Conversion Department, and not change anything.
