OK, you've found the registered owner. The SA means Saudi Arabia. They've already sent 100's of millions of petro-dollars to support Hamas, Hezzbullah, Fatah,... why should they want to make an internet appeal? -- I think it's actually a recruitment page. Show the all the bad-boys in Mosques all the around the world how tuff they are with their automatic weapons and plastic explosive belts.

Here's how to find out where the website is hosted: Open up a dos prompt if you are on a windows machine and type this:

So, all we have to do is talk to the ISP about supporting terror (as well as Houston law enforcement, the FBI, DoJ, the Attorney General of the Great State of Texas , Senators Phil Gramm , Kay Hutchison and both your Senators and your Representative in your home state)

However -- Jeremy Reynalds writes:

Let me explain. Last week I reported a story concerning the possible hosting by a Houston-based Internet Service Provider of a Hamas terrorist web site that's asking for donations to buy guns and ammunition. After calling the company for comment, I also e-mailed CEO Robert Marsh and asked him why his company was hosting such a site.

Marsh responded by e-mail, "We host a large number of web sites, directly and indirectly. We had no knowledge that we were hosting these sites. We don't want to host these types of sites and as we are made aware of them, we remove these offensive sites immediately. We here at Ev1 and Rackshack were deeply affected by the events on September 11th, and would never do anything to aid those people. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention."

Being aware that the Hamas has been designated an illegal terrorist group by the United States government, I also alerted the Houston FBI. An agent took down all the information I gave him and told me to expect a call the next day. I never received any call back from the FBI and when the offending web sites weren't removed I initially figured that maybe the folks at Everyone's Internet weren't as "deeply affected " as they had made out.

However, a few days later I was e-mailed a story from the Houston Chronicle, which let me know why the web sites were still up and why the FBI hadn't called me back. However, these "answers" triggered even more questions. Marsh told the Chronicle he was unaware of the sites until recently (I suspect when I called his office and e-mailed him informing him of their existence), and that while Everyman's does not do business directly with the site operators in question, he was willing to block them anyway.

Now this is where the story gets really interesting and we need to start making calls and demanding answers. According to the Chronicle, after blocking the sites the company was contacted by the U.S. Customs Service which asked that the sites be put back on line again. Since when has the U.S. Customs Service had any form of legal authority over the web?

This time, Marsh did not return e-mails from me asking for comment. He had nothing to say to the Houston Chronicle either, on why the Customs Service wanted the sites running again. According to the Chronicle, "Marsh referred questions to a telephone number left by a customs agent. The number rang at the Customs Communications Center in Orlando, Fla., where an officer said he had no information on the case. FBI and customs spokesmen in Houston said they too had no information." (What is a Florida officer of the U.S. Customs Service doing in Texas?)

Oh yes, I know about the ping procedure with the web addresses, but am glad you illustrated it here for purposes of the subject at hand. I don't think this particular trace info has been posted on any of the other threads concerning this terror/Texas web connection. And I do know SA is Saudi Arabia - but I was being obtusely sarcastic at the Palis' expense. Okay - too obtuse. I lead people off and lose them at times like that, so I apoligize for that one. Though it's not near as important as where the website is nested, or hosted at, what attracted my immediate attention was how registration details info for this at was swapped around ("Istanbul was Constantinople, Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople..." ).
You're doing good - keep at it. I would not have been alerted to this particular batch of scheming if not for your posting.
