J-Merkabah & DjSadhu – Holy War

From the upcoming album “Geometry Wars”.

“Holy War” is a song that shows two extreme points of view in a long lasting conflict in the Middle East, that already has taken thousands of lives.
We do NOT support or endorse either of the viewpoints illustrated in the song, but would have you take a look into the different mind sets for a moment. How come people are willing to kill each other?
Fortunately there are plenty of good Israeli folks who do not support the massacre of Palestinians, as there are many Palestinians who do not support the actions of Hamas.
The real casualties are the civilians on both sides.

++ May peace be with you all some day ++

Obama Wave of Cyberattacks Against Iran + Iran starts making anti-virus software

Editor’s note: keep in mind that the StuxNet virus had a hand in the Fukishima disaster, and that the security of the plant was done by an Israeli company.

Obama Order Sped Up Wave of Cyberattacks Against Iran

WASHINGTON — From his first months in office, President Obama secretly ordered increasingly sophisticated attacks on the computer systems that run Iran’s main nuclear enrichment facilities, significantly expanding America’s first sustained use of cyberweapons, according to participants in the program.
Mr. Obama decided to accelerate the attacks — begun in the Bush administration and code-named Olympic Games — even after an element of the program accidentally became public in the summer of 2010 because of a programming error that allowed it to escape Iran’s Natanz plant and sent it around the world on the Internet. Computer security experts who began studying the worm, which had been developed by the United States and Israel, gave it a name: Stuxnet.

At a tense meeting in the White House Situation Room within days of the worm’s “escape,” Mr. Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and the director of the Central Intelligence Agency at the time, Leon E. Panetta, considered whether America’s most ambitious attempt to slow the progress of Iran’s nuclear efforts had been fatally compromised.

“Should we shut this thing down?” Mr. Obama asked, according to members of the president’s national security team who were in the room.

Told it was unclear how much the Iranians knew about the code, and offered evidence that it was still causing havoc, Mr. Obama decided that the cyberattacks should proceed. In the following weeks, the Natanz plant was hit by a newer version of the computer worm, and then another after that. The last of that series of attacks, a few weeks after Stuxnet was detected around the world, temporarily took out nearly 1,000 of the 5,000 centrifuges Iran had spinning at the time to purify uranium.

Iran starts making own anti-virus software

Iran has started making its own anti-virus software, Assistant Professor of Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Shiraz, Mohammad Hossein Sheikhi said, ISNA reported.

The software is being developed by Iranian experts from Shiraz Computer Emergency Response Team of APA (Academic Protection and Awareness) of Iran. APA centers started operation in 2007 with the intention of providing service in the fields of network security and network disorders.

Sheikhi said the work on the domestic-made antivirus started in 2010, and since then undergone successful tests.

In 2010, Iran’s industrial and nuclear computer systems were attacked by the Stuxnet worm. The worm was a malware designed to infect computers using Siemens Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) – a control system favoured by industries that manage water supplies, oil rigs and power plants.

Since then Iranian officials have stated that the country will be working on strengthening country’s online security.

Israel behind Flame super-virus targeting Iran?

A top Israeli minister yesterday fed speculation that the Jewish state could be responsible for a powerful new virus said to have been used in a fresh attack on computers in Iran and elsewhere in the Middle East.

The discovery of the unprecedented complex data-stealing “Flame” virus was disclosed by a Russian-based digital security firm Kaspersky Lab. Its experts reported on Monday that it had been applied most actively in Iran, but also in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s Vice Prime Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister, told the country’s Army Radio: “Anyone who sees the Iranian threat as a significant threat – it’s reasonable [to assume] that he will take various steps, including these, to harm it.”

Mr Yaalon, a former military Chief of Staff, added: “Israel was blessed as being a country rich with high-tech. These tools that we take pride in open up all kinds of opportunities for us.”

Israël uses white phosphorus air-burst shells on Gaza – UN school hit

“Israel accused of indiscriminate phosphorus use in Gaza
Human Rights Watch report claims Israel committed war crimes in its use of air-burst white phosphorus artillery shells”
[source]

“Each air-burst shell spreads 116 burning white phosphorus wedges in a radius extending up to 125 meters from the blast point. White phosphorus ignites and burns on contact with oxygen, and continues burning at up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit (816 degrees Celsius) until nothing is left or the oxygen supply is cut. When white phosphorus comes into contact with skin it creates intense and persistent burns.
When used properly in open areas, white phosphorus munitions are not illegal, but the Human Rights Watch report concludes that the IDF repeatedly exploded it unlawfully over populated neighborhoods, killing and wounding civilians and damaging civilian structures, including a school, a market, a humanitarian aid warehouse, and a hospital. ”
