The hacker said, “Do you know that Israel was established on paper in 1948! Before Egypt installed its railways, do you know that you, and your state, are nothing, nothing, nothing”, and added, “I know you will be angry when you see my message, but please don’t hurt yourself, we want you sound and healthy so you can see the end of Israel, to see how your terrorist state disappears”.
