The website of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein (Likud) was hacked overnight Monday.

Edelstein called the hacking attack against edelstein.org.il/hebrew "an act of terror in every way." He said "no one will succeed in stopping my work for Israeli public diplomacy and on behalf of the settlers of Judea and Samaria. We defeat our enemies everyday on every front and we will continue to do so on the Internet and in the media as well."

Edelstein is frequently criticized in the Arab media and social networking sites because he is perceived as being in charge of Israeli propaganda.
