Hackers from Kuwait tampered with Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely's web site on Thursday, replacing its usual content with a picture of a man in a keffiyeh waving a Palestinian flag and holding a Koran.

"Their attempts to frighten me will not succeed," Hotovely said. "The website will go back up, and I will continue in my political activity without fear."

"Team Kuwait Hackers" has previously hacked into a number of Israeli sites this year, including that of the Israel Scouts.
