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. 

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
