    The "Internet Firewall" hacked and the web site was not. Ha, so the door was broken open and the thieves said "Hello" and left. Tell this to the birds in the South.

    They have hacked the site and replaced the home page. That is called hacking.

    I can't understand the ideology of these people. They have to hack a website to praise the God.
