Anonymous hacks Israeli Hair Salon. They proclaim OpIsrael a Sucess

From the New York Times, reporting on the April 7, 2013 Cyber Day of rage against Israel:

Guy Mizrahi of Cyberia, an Israeli cybersecurity firm, said in an interview that the damage was not significant and that most of the attacks were “childish.”....

The pro-Palestinian hackers seemed to have had more success in attacking small businesses and individual Facebook pages. At midday they announced on Twitter that they had defaced the Web site of an Israeli hair salon, Peter Hair, in Ramat Hasharon, near Tel Aviv.

The salon site’s home page showed a person with a masked face, an image associated with Anonymous, holding a sign saying “Indonesian Security Down #OP ISRAHELL.” The rest of the screen was filled with a message to the government, accusing Israel of having “wronged humanity.” The hackers signed off with the message, “We are Muslims, Soldier of Allah.”

Reached by telephone on Sunday evening, the owner of the salon, Peter Imseis, said he had not been aware that the site had been hacked and added that it had not affected his business. Asked why he thought the salon had become a target, he said, “I don’t have a clue. It’s very strange.” 

Also reported- an Israeli army surplus store's website at was successfully hacked..  Anonymous  then claimed they had disabled the mighty Israeli military infrastructure.  Fortunately, their research skills are as competent as their hacking.
