International hacker group Anonymous released a video this week coinciding with the annual America Israel Political Action Committee Policy Conference in Washington, vowing to make AIPAC “pay for their crimes.”

Anonymous is a loosely organized group of hackers that released a similar YouTube video last month, vowing to launch an internet crusade against Israel, which it accused of committing “crimes against humanity.”

The group was also allegedly behind the stealing of millions of emails from the US-based global security analysis firm, Startfor, which were published by whistleblower website WikiLeaks in February.

“Just a few weeks ago we declared our crusade against the government of Israel and all supporting counterparts for their involvement in war propaganda, crimes against humanity and the systematic genocide and expulsion of minorities,” a computer-generated voice said in the video released this week.

“Our government’s foreign policy has no sovereignty to America, its sovereignty is now to Israel. AIPAC is now our enemy. We’re calling for an occupation of AIPAC and the destruction of their websites, make them pay for their crimes,” the video said.
