MANSFIELD Hezbullah:You've Got Mail! & Memo To CAIR
by Laura Mansfield
[author, analyst] 7/19/06

If you’ve been following the crisis in the middle east throughout recent days, you might have something you want to say to the leaders of Hezbullah, but you probably don’t have the phone number of a top Hezbullah officer.

But this is 2006, and the best way to reach someone isn’t always by phone.

If you want to get a message to Hezbullah, it’s surprisingly simple.

They have an email address posted at the top of their website ­ just drop them a message at info@moqawama.net.

Perhaps you’re concerned about whether the email will go through? After all, Israel has attacked the Hezbullah television station, Al-Manar TV, in Beirut. The Al Manar website remains offline. What’s to stop Israel from taking out the Hezbullah website too?

Actually, that’s pretty unlikely, considering that the website is hosted on a server in ­ you guessed it ­ Chicago, IL, in the United States.

Hezbullah’s website is located at http://www.alghaliboun.net.

Although an attempt was made to hide the server hosting the website through the use of a private DNS service, a little network detective work shows that the website is hosted on a server at FASTERSERVERS.NET, an ISP located in Chicago.

The website offers content in both English and Arabic. It features a banner showing Hezbullah leader Mohamed Nasrallah.

The website apparently replaces the Moqawama.net website, which has since 1998 been the primary site of Hizbullah on the internet.

The Hizbullah “Press Office” and the Al Manar TV websites remain offline.

Aaron Weisburg at Internet Haganah has an excellent analysis of the extent to which American webhosting companies are supporting Hezbullah. To view Aaron's report, click here.

Memo To CAIR

Dear CAIR,

You may communicate directly with Hassan Nasrallah at
info@moqawama.org.  All requests for ceasefire should be directed to him.  He has the power to end the hostilities by releasing the kidnapped soldiers.

PS:  Could you please send out a CAIR action alert calling for Hamas to cease suicide bombings, and for Osama Bin Laden to quit killing civilians?  Nope?  Didn't think so.

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful


President will be urged to call for cease-fire, send humanitarian relief

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 7/18/06) - Beginning July 19, local chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold news conferences nationwide with members of the Muslim and Arab-American communities who have relatives under attack in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

At the news conferences, community members will ask President Bush to call for an immediate cease-fire by all parties in the Middle East conflict and urge that humanitarian relief be sent to areas devastated by Israel's bombing campaigns.

Events have already been scheduled in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Orlando, Detroit, Phoenix, Cincinnati, and Columbus, Ohio

WHAT: CAIR News Conferences with Those Who Have Relatives in Lebanon, Gaza
Beginning Wednesday, July 19 (Some CAIR chapters will hold news conferences on Thursday or Friday.)
CONTACT: Contact the nearest CAIR office for details about the news conferences.

There are an estimated 25,000 American citizens in Lebanon, and many American citizens, both Christian and Muslim, have relatives in Lebanon and Gaza. Despite the fact that many civilians have already been killed in Israeli attacks on the civilian infrastructures of both areas, President Bush has rejected calls for a cease-fire.

Plans to evacuate American citizens from Lebanon have been criticized as too slow. The U.S. government will also bill each evacuee for the cost of their transport out of Lebanon.

"We are concerned that our government's refusal to even request a cease-fire to end humanitarian suffering in Lebanon and Gaza creates the perception that Muslim and Arab lives are somehow less valuable than Israeli lives," said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad. "Targeting civilians to achieve a political goal is terrorism, whether the target is a pizza parlor in Tel Aviv or an apartment building in Beirut."

CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 32 offices, chapters and affiliates nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding. CRO
