Rock star Wikileaks leader Julian Assange has captured the world's attention at the expense of no other than the U.S. Government. For better and for worse, we should consider this to be a historic beginning of an inevitable trend: high-profile cyber "activism" / "terrorism". The questions on my mind (with respect to Israel) are these: When will the first Israeli Wikileaks "attack" occur? Will it provide nearly incontrovertible proof to the international community of the long-suspected nuclear weapons at Israel's disposal? How could such cyber "activism" "attacks" alter the landscape of international politics? And how long before states around the world "catch up" and crack down?
