Al Manar Live Feed From Atlanta GA

UPDATE: Down! We get shiite done!! If the link below comes back online, let us know. The FBI--thanks to your complaints--is also now on the case!
--------------------

Hezballah’s TV station al-Manar is using a US server in Atlanta, GA today to broadcast its live internet feed. The hosting provider is Global Net Access. Remember Hezballah is designated as a terrorist organization by the United States and it is against the law to provide them services to distribute their propaganda here. I have the hosting information below as well as the complaint and abuse email addys and phone numbers.

The link to the al-Manar feed is here, mms://207.210.95.42/live.

Persistant little cusses, aren't we?

James sends us this link to al-Manar's programming guide. They may use this page and others like it to allow access as they get booted from place to place

Hat Tip: Michael Hampton.

UPDATE by Rusty
: Just as a reminder, it's not just Hezbollah that is considered a terrorist organization. Al Manor is on the Terrorist Exclusion list too.

UPDATE II: Several people have already notified the FBI about this. But any case against those that broke the law could take some time. In the interim, be sure to keep pressure on the hosting company. The hosting company may not have known what it's servers were being used for, but they no longer have that excuse.

UPDATE III: Another reminder. People go to jail for doing business with al Manor.

Update IV by Howie: I can no longer access the link. It appears this link is dead now. We get sheeyat done!

Update V by Rusty:

Keep checking the link. If it comes back up, let us know. Pat yourselves on the collective back.

But taking terrorists off the internet is a lot like a game of whack-a-mole. At the very least, though, we can make sure American corporations are not enabling terrorists. We'll leave that for the French!
