    What is this site about??

    http://www.palestineway.com/

    I'm actually scared. This site is hosted on one of my servers, the server that is being DOS attacked alot.

    I don't know if its promoting terrorism or if its just a normal palestinian website. I do not want to approach this customer unless I'm sure

    Any ideas? Anyone knows arabic?

    Looks to be a pro Palestinian site about the Israeli/Palestine conflict.

    Jihad is just a holy war. It doesnt necessarily mean suicide bombings.

    But the site does seem to promote violence against Israel.

    I know a bit of Arabic, and I looked at it... it's basically a news site, reporting the "victories" of jihadi groups.

    It probably was the target. I'd call it a terrorist site.

    Can't read that at all, but the cartoon at the bottom of the soldier (Israeli) with the star of David on his helmet being squished by a tree would be enough to tell me it's advocating murder of jews.

    I searched for a bunch of al qaeda/terrorist sites, and all the ones I came across had already been hacked by the time I got into them. I'd say this is most likely the reason you're getting attacked. And, by the way, doesn't seem to be anyone that really cares that these sites are being hacked (wonder who the hackers are working for?). Most of the hosting companies (from what I've read) shut these sites down for the very reason that they're getting so many hacking attempts/attacks. If jodohost was my company I'd shut it down for that reason alone. Your other customers are suffering because of it.

    I do not know Arabic, but this site is definately a site that promots violence and terrorism.....on the main page, there are three icons and names in the upper left area:

    Saraya Al-Quds

    ".....Saraya al-Quds ( al-Quds groups), the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement announced in a statement spoke of the killing of three members of Saraya al-Quds in al-Breij and Hebron. They are Nour Abu Aramaneh from al-Breij camp, Diab Shweiki from Hebron and Abdul Rahim al-Qawasmeh from Hebron. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, special advisor to Palestinian President Yasser Arafat held the Israeli government responsible for the escalation and the new massacre committed by the Israeli army....."


    http://www.arabicnews.com/ansub/Dail...003092611.html


    Fathi Shikaki

    "....Palestine Islamic Jihad-Shikaki Faction (PIJ-SF) – A Specially Designated Terrorist Group founded by Fathi Shikaki in 1980, with the mission of the elimination and destruction of Israel. After Shikaki was assassinated in 1995, Ramadan Abdallah Shallah succeeded Shikaki as the organization’s leader"

    http://216.239.41.104/search?q=cache...+shikaki&hl=en


    Ramadan Abdullah

    "Narrative: Abdallah was a University of South Florida professor and, according to this report, "a Palestinian exile with a Ph.D. in economics who had lived in the United States since 1990." He is a suspected leader of Islamic Jihad, which has been designated a terrorist organization and is also suspected in a variety of terrorist acts since 1988"

    http://www.latefinal.com/archives/000536.html


    that's enough for me - if your company is a proponent of peace and not murder and violence, you need to shut down this site.

    Presumeably in the hosting contract there is a clause that says something like:

    "The administrators reserve the right to edit or delete all or part of any submitted material(s) without notice or stated reason(s)"

    That means you can shut them down without worrying about being labelled biased against anyone.

    Yank the plug if you are in doubt of its innocence.

    All french people do smell, whereas clearly the vast majority of Jewish people are law abiding.

    It is our policy to now allow any content that promotes violence. And we have shut down websites before that promote violence but this was in a different language, so I had no clue

    I do not want to offend any customer so that's why I'm cautious with these arabic websites on the servers
    Anyway, thanx alot. I'll be notifying this customer.

    According to some on this planet yes. Luckily most of them are on the other side of the pond.

    The FBI contacted us.. and it was closed down.
    As you can see, it isn't opening.

    One of the founders of that site was sitting in federal prison according to them..

    the FBI and NSA are pretty quick to contact us.. They have done so 2 times over the last few years... They normally ask us to freeze the account and give them all contact details
