AIPAC urges U.S. to shut Iranian site

Haaretz reports:

he American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is urging the United States government to disconnect an Iranian news site from American Internet servers, charging that the site has ties to terrorist organizations. The allegation is based on a report published by Haaretz last month.

Is terror the new porn?


  1. “Is terror the new porn?”

    probably not just yet. according to one of the songs in avenue q, “the internet is for porn.” maybe when they change the lyrics =)

    btw, it’s blogday 2006 and i recommended your blog on mine. happy blogday!

  2. Huh. It’s times like these that I wish I could read Farsi so that I could decide for myself.

    I wonder if their hosting company (which as far as I can decipher is The Planet in Dallas, TX) was contacted by the AIPAC before it was taken to the government. Though, given the trade sanctions against Iran, I doubt the provider would have a leg to stand on.

    In my search for the above information I came across this website which seems to be keeping a tally of “Jihadist” websites (certainly some of them look like hatemongering from the images, but without a good translation others are kind of sketchy).

    They list Baztab up there. They also list IP addresses and contact information for the registrants, so I’m not sure what exactly they’re advocating be done about it (telephone harassment? DoS attacks?).
