Turkish hackers reportedly attacked the Cyprus parliament’s website last month. Writes Christine Douglass-Williams
Jihadists will use any and every method to advance their mission, from violent and stealth jihad to jihad by immigration, and now by computer hacking.
Turkish hackers reportedly attacked the Cyprus parliament’s website last month. The government issued a statement that “thanks to the timely treatment to the incident there was no negative result, while additional security measures were then taken for precautionary reasons.”
Greek Cypriots are the island’s internationally recognized government and an EU member, and they refuse to discuss any resolution to the Turkish occupation of northern Cyprus which would recognize an independent Turkish Cypriot state. Jihadists can never own enough territory. They always aim for more, as in the Middle East, where Muslim Arabs occupy a vast expanse of territory and still want Israel annihilated.
