Anonymous Appears To Take Down AIPAC Website

The Israel group a target as Obama speaks. Also "Occupy AIPAC."

Posted on

The annual policy conference of the pro-Israel Group AIPAC is, as always, a massive show of bipartisan pro-Israel solidarity, and the target of protests from Israel's critics.

This year's protesters include newcomers: A group called "Occupy AIPAC," whose leaders seem to be drawn from the longtime anti-war group Code Pink, and the hacktivist collective Anonymous.

This morning, as President Obama speaks to the group, its website has crashed. An AIPAC spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment, but claims of responsibility could be found on Twitter.
