Hackers targeted the website of the Israeli company Groupon Monday afternoon in response to the IDF's Pillar of Defense operation in Gaza.

The hackers, who claimed to be working from Pakistan, wrote a number of expletives on the homepage of the site, including one line that called Israelis "mentally retarded people because you do not learn from your mistakes, and from mistakes of those who preceded you of your pigs!"

The message written on the site in green and red text, using broken English, warned against Israeli soldiers from entering Gaza.
