Terror on the Net By: Lee Kaplan

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) is a terrorist organization that was responsible for the murder of Israeli tourism minister Raba’am Zevi a few years ago, along with several other murders of Israeli civilians and at least four US citizens in terrorist attacks. The US State Department also has the PFLP on its terrorism watch list.  Because of this, doing business with the PFLP or lending them logistical support is illegal. The Patriot Act also has provisions for dealing with terrorists.

The servers and web hosting for the PFLP terrorist website are handled by a large American internet company, GoDaddy Software, out of Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to GoDaddy’s own website, Go Daddy “is widely recognized for its success, having been ranked #8 on the 2004 Inc. 500 list of the nation's fastest-growing privately held companies; #20 on the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 (growing 8,274 percent!); and having won the CNET Editor's Choice award in 2001, the Name Intelligence Largest Net Gain Award in 2002, 2003 and 2005; the Name Intelligence Users' Choice Award in 2005 as well as the #1 Best Overall Registrar in 2003. Go Daddy also won the Arizona Corporate Excellence Award for fastest growing privately-held company in 2003 and Most Innovative Large Company in 2004.”


GoDaddy, in other words, is an efficient well-run company.


Most disturbingly, GoDaddy, like all internet companies, has the means to decipher,  through a search engine and client list, whether any of its clients are terrorist organizations. If any company typed in PFLP, Hamas or Al Qaeda, something will definitely pop up that demands scrutiny.


Here is the key: if Homeland Security would fine these companies big bucks for not doing these checks, these companies would do these checks.


In this case, the registrant’s name is right there for anyone to read: and it is the official name of the registrant for the website http://www.pflp.net/.  It reads Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine!


The website is one hundred pages deep with lots of useful information and news items for terrorists. The site even has sections praising Al Qaeda and shows that the PFLP is part of the same hydra’s head on international terrorism.


One would think a terrorist organization would try to hide from the authorities. But why should they if, after all, American internet companies are glad to do business with them?


And if American security agencies are always asleep and not actively doing anything about them, why should terrorist organizations worry about it?
