“I love Mohammed” is the message written in ten languages on websites defaced by the newly formed Arab Electronic Army hacker collective. The crew was established with the purpose of defending “Allah’s prophet.”
One of the members has told
Al Arabiya that the group is formed of individuals from Morocco and Syria. He claims that they were independent hackers who decided to unite their forces after the Innocence of Muslims video was posted on YouTube and a French magazine published “blasphemous” cartoons featuring the prophet.
“The hacking operations are of course a response to the offense against the prophet, peace and blessing be upon him,” he said.
They already breached several websites, many of them from Brazil, to deliver their protest message.
“To all the enemies of Islam, we say: by Allah, we will not lost this war and we will continue to this way (sic),” they wrote on the defaced sites.
