Teddy Bear Jihad

by

Seeking to critique Israeli foreign policy, a group of hapless Algerian hackers
launched a cyber attack on the website of Belvoir Castle - apparently
mistaking it for Israel's 12th-century Belvoir Fortress. The castle, the
family seat of the 11th Duke of Rutland, holds garden tours and an
annual teddy bears' picnic. God knows there is cause to rage against
Israel. But jeez, let's do our homework, and leave the bears out of it. 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
