Online Attacks against Anti-War Group

The U.K. based anti-war group, "Stop the War", claims its website, Facebook and YouTube sites are being disrupted:

"Stop the War believes pro-Israeli groups could be behind the internet campaign, although a spokesman admitted it had no proof this was the case.

"A spokesman said of the cyber-war it was facing: "It's a well-known tactic. The same thing happened to us before our anti-Iraq war protests in 2003. We obviously can't prove any connection but the timing would suggest that it's a supporter of Israel."

"The spokesman told The Independent: "At the same time that our website was under attack, a number of videos went up on YouTube which claimed the demonstration had been cancelled. Someone posted notices on our Facebook groups saying the same thing."
