In February 2012, the spokesman of Al-Gama’a Al-Islamiyya in Egypt, ‘Assem ‘Abd Al-Maged, said in response to Saudi hacking attacks on Israeli sites: “Anything [that can be used to] fight evil and the plans of the enemies is a good thing. However, this requires clever planning, so that we do not open gates of harm that will be impossible to close again” (see MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 4483, Muslim Clerics: Cyber Warfare Against Israel Is A Form Of Jihad, February 9, 2012)
