U.S. Designates Somalian Terror Group While U.S. Host's Official Website


UPDATED & BUMPED by Rusty: It is no longer simply immoral that an American company is hosting the website of al Qaeda's Somalian affiliate, it is now illegal. We've been complaining for months that the al-Shabab movement has been spreading it's vile propaganda through U.S. webservers. Now, it looks like we can finally take legal action.

The following statement should be included in any letters of complaint to al-Shabab's service providers.

"Providing business services, even free ones, to al-Shabaab violates
the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) in the US. Each IEEPA violation of carries a fine of up to $250,000."

Remember, this is the official website of the al-Shabaab, not just a website belonging to its supporters.

Update on Islamic Terrorist's Behead 3 Somalian soldiers Update They have a US hosted website

VOA News

The United States government has classified al-Shabaab, an Islamic militant group based in Somalia, as a terrorist organization.

This comes after the group reportedly committed various acts of terrorism, including beheading three government soldiers during an ambush on a checkpoint outside the capital, Mogadishu and praising Osama Bin Laden in the process. The militant group recently claimed responsibility for a series of bombings and attacks on Somali government and Ethiopian soldiers.

See Executive Order 13224 at U.S.Department of State or PDF version for reference.

This should help shut down their website(see below) as previously the provider told Jawa reader StarCMC;

Please contact our legal department ( in regards to this matter. Currently this site/organization cannot be proven by the abuse department to be "Persons Who Commit, Threaten To Commit, or Support Terrorism", and as such we can take no action based on freedom of speech rights. If a court or other legal entity determines this site to fall under the restrictions of Executive Order 13224 (see above links), our legal department will receive the request and the site will be shut down.
Previous update by Rusty: Good news, the Shabab have a website...and it's hosted in the USA. =
