Chron JERUSALEM - Hundreds of Israeli Web sites were shut down by pro-Palestinian hackers as Israeli troops invaded southern Gaza after the abduction of an Israeli soldier, an Israeli newspaper reported Thursday.

By early today, all the Web sites were back online. The report could not be independently confirmed.
Among the sites mentioned were Israel's largest bank, Bank Hapoalim, as well as a hospital in Haifa, BMW Israel, Subaru Israel and Citroen Israel.
The paper said the hacker team, with at least six members, is apparently based in Morocco and began attacking U.S. government Web sites in 2004
If I recall correctly same kind of attacks were launched against Russian web site by Chechen E-Rebels. This seems the only way for some people to express their anger especially when there is no political alternatives.
