Issues of the Day Anti-Israel Graffiti on a Humanitarian Website
 

As I prepared a press release in advance of a medical conference sponsored by the Israel Pulmonary Hypertension Association, a patient's organization on whose Board I serve, I went to the group's website to retrieve some information.  
As the site came up on my screen I was in turns perplexed, confused and then infuriated to find the this brazen graffiti overlay on our homepage (more).


It is well-known that pro-Palestinian activists (of a kind) routinely hack official and unofficial Israeli websites. The efficacy and purpose of such attacks is difficult to see, all the more so when it is directed to a site maintained by an advocacy and support group for people – Jews, Arabs and others – who suffer from  a killer disease. One can only ask: Whose justice is served by such mechanical hatred and how do the perpetrators think they can bring peace and coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians through such mindless, hateful acts?


Does Mr. Ali have the courage to come forward and present a credible justification for his actions?
