Does Your Web Host Support Killing You?

Is it true that a capitalist will sell you the rope to hang him?

That question now hits cyberspace with a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute. According to MEMRI, RealWebHost is hosting on servers in Texas an Islamist site, Alhesbah Forum, which has apparently posted a report titled “The Excellent Summary of the Rules of the Art of Kidnapping Americans.”
MEMRI states that if negotiations fail, the guide recommends hanging or poisoning the hostages in order to (a) prevent an honorable death and (b) avoid those messy bloodstains. Who knew there was terrorist etiquette? Perhaps they’re trying to save money on carpet cleaning.

According to the Free Muslims Coalition, Alhesbah posted a Muslim loyalty oath two years ago to Al-Qaeda leaders that included Osama bin Laden.
Before some idiot starts screaming “First Amendment,” let me point out that I’m not trying to censor speech.

However, the Constitution is not a suicide pact.
There are many businesses online who refuse to share server space with pornography sites.

How many of these same Internet marketers would object to sharing space with a jihadist site that advocates kidnapping and killing Americans?

Have you forgotten 9/11?
