Dotster under fire for Web content, should Dotster web hosting company in Vancouver WA continue to host a site that frequently praises Islamist militants ? (like the ones that knocked down the WTC towers on 9/11, is this really a question from a Journalist based in the USA ?)

On one side: The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right to freedom of speech and expression, and law enforcement agencies have so far not deemed the content of the site to be illegal, so it should stay. (one of the last statements on was to kill all white people in Somalia)

Visitors...Estimated number of visits for 5,037 visits per day

On another side: By praising al-Qaida and promoting a radical Islamic ideology, the site supports terrorists and should therefore be shut down. How to get involved: Weigh in on The Columbian’s business blog, let's hear form you

A group of self-described anti-terrorist vigilantes has put the heat on Vancouver-based Dotster Inc. for hosting an Arabic- and Somali- language Web site that frequently praises leaders in Somalia’s al-Qaida organization.

Dotster officials said they pass along all complaints to law enforcement agencies, but unless required by law, the company does not remove its customers’ content from the Internet. The site under fire, , is associated with the al-Shabaab movement in war- and genocide-torn Somalia, according to reports from the BBC and Reuters. In addition to praising Islamist militants, the site lists news about battles and bombings in Somalia. “Kataaib” is Arabic for “Brigades.”

Florida resident Bill Warner, who describes himself as an anti-terrorist vigilante, is among a collection of online activists who want to use public pressure on Dotster to get shut down. Dotster, a Web registration and hosting company, generates revenue by hosting Web sites. It has hosted since April 13, 2007, according to Internet records.

“The actual terrorists are out in the field blowing things up,” Warner said. “But there are groups like this one that associate with al-Qaida through Web sites, that help promote the ideology, help find new recruits and help the effort to support terrorism.”

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right to freedom of speech and expression, and for that reason Dotster attempts to be very careful about balancing the rights of its customers with other concerns. (even terrorists). = IP Address

“We don’t censor people based on what they say, as long as it’s legal,” Dotster said. “We may not agree with some activities our customers do, but we are not in a position to be judge and jury. If the authorities issue an order to take down a site, we follow that order.” “It’s not freedom of speech,” Warner said. “This site should not be hosted in Vancouver.” (these people in al-Shabaab work directly with al-Qaeda).
Today, Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) released her “Wake Up America” agenda. Rep. Myrick’s goal in releasing her agenda is to alert, and educate, Americans to terrorist threats here at home posed by radical Islamic extremists. This is her agenda, this is not the agenda of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.This agenda is the start of Rep. Myrick’s work on these issues. As she moves forward on these points, she will update the public on her findings.
Her ten point agenda is below.
1). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. military chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.
2). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. prison chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.
4). Will call for the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) 501(c)(3) non-profit status which restricts “lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.”
6). Will call on the Government Accountability Office to conduct an audit to verify the total sovereign wealth fund investment in the United States.
7). Will attempt to cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their textbooks.
8). Will introduce a bill to restrict R-1/R-2 religious visas for imams who come from countries that do not allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
10). Will introduce or sponsor a bill to block the sale of sensitive military munitions, especially Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), to Saudi Arabia.
