Bravo, WND — and let’s not forget Internet Haganah, where they do this sort of thing every day.
From WND, :
Official Hamas websites being hosted in the United States were shut down yesterday following inquiries by WorldNetDaily for an article about the terror group’s online activities in Western countries.
Hamas has been using the Internet – through service companies in the U.S., Eastern Europe and East Asia – to maintain communication with its own networks, talk to other terror organizations and spread anti-Israel and anti-American terrorist propaganda to large audiences, intelligence sources said.
A list of official Hamas sites, along with technical specifications, names of hosting companies and registration information was obtained by WorldNetDaily and used to call various American companies for comment, leading to a major clampdown on U.S.-hosted Hamas sites.
The website of the Islamic Bloc, Hamas’ student wing, www.alkotla.net, which was being hosted by Co-Location.com Inc. of Beverly Hills, Calif., was shut down yesterday upon inquiry. The site urged students to become “martyrs,” encouraged anti-Israeli terrorism and praised suicide bombers.
The site was rented by Co-Location to a secondary hosting company, Online Horizons, which leased the online space to a group called Al-Kutla al-Islamiyya. The Online Horizons agent who represented the transaction, Ahmed Muhammad, would not comment….
Also shut down upon WND inquiry is www.alresalah.org, a weekly online Arabic periodical published in Gaza on behalf of the Islamic Salvation Party, a branch of Hamas. The website, which was hosted by Rackspace.com of San Antonio, Texas, contained research articles and Hamas background information, and called for terrorism against Israelis. The site also targeted the “moderate leadership” of the Palestinian Authority.
Intelligence officials told WorldNetDaily the site was “an experimental Hamas publication.”…
Indeed, those identified as Hamas’ primary group of websites, including the terror groups stated official website, Palestine Info, are serviced directly or through subcontractors by four companies in Russia and Ukraine.
Palestine Info, which recently communicated with WorldNetDaily and openly admits to being controlled by Hamas, features a Hamas news portal in Arabic and is supported by several secondary websites hosted in Malaysia and Ukraine that contain information on the Hamas movement and its history, official Hamas announcements, interviews with senior Hamas members, incitement against Israel and messages praising terrorism and suicide bombers.
Palestine Info maintains secondary sites in Arabic, French, Russian, Malay, Urdu, Farsi and English.
The ISPs for the Arabic site, originally registered in Beirut, have been identified as Colocall Ltd. in Kiev, Emirates Telecommunications Corporation in Dubai and Telekom Multimedia in Malaysia.
An e-mail recently sent to Palestine Info by WorldNetDaily inquiring about the site was returned by someone identifying himself as Omar.
“Sorry, we do not talk to American infidels,” wrote Omar.
