TEHRAN, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Robert Murdoch and his Zionist partners will take their immoral messages to the Iranian people to the grave, an Iranian Internet group declared.

The so-called Iranian Cyber Army hacked into the Web site of satellite channel Farsi1, broadcasting a message to the conglomerate's owners, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.

"Rupert Murdoch, the Moby company, the Mohseni family, and the Zionists partners should know that they will take the wish to destroy the structure of Iranian families with them to the grave," the message reads.

Farsi1 broadcasts Latin American soap operas dubbed into local languages. Iranian authorities complain the channel is a Western cultural intervention meant to influence Iranian morality.

The Iranian Cyber Army formed after last year's disputed presidential elections in Iran, breaking into Twitter and several other Web outlets used by backers of Iran's opposition movement.

Ebrahim Jabbari, the head of a division of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, suggested in May that the military branch had created a cyber army.

The Iranian Cyber Army said in a message on its Web site that is was protesting the "American and Zionist Web site" and warned it would retaliate against "all those involved in a soft overthrow project."
