Mahmoud Abbas' jihad against InLightPress newspaper

Over the past few days, Challah Hu Akbar at Israellycool has been documenting a remarkable attack on a Palestinian Arab newspaper, apparently ordered by Mahmoud Abbas himself, after it published some articles critical of him.

The site, InLightPress, suffered from a DDoS attack that the paper said been orchestrated by the PA government and authorized by Abbas personally.

A couple of journalists have also been arrested by the PA in recent days.

InLightPress is down as of this writing, and this time it looks like a more traditional hacking attack rather than a denial of service.
