Yahoo! Still Hosting German al Qaeda Website

UPDATE: Yahoo! Geocities has taken the German al Qaeda website down. Thank you Yahoo! Geocities, and all those who wrote in to complain.
----------------

24 hours later, and despite numerous complaints, Yahoo! Geocities is still hosting a German language al Qaeda support website. The "al-Jawab" website is being promoted on Islamic forums as the German language version of the Global Islamic Media Front [GIMF].

In addition to offering German translations of various jihadi videos--especially those of the al Qaeda as-Sahab brand-- and books ---including Osama bin Laden's "The Right Way to Victory" [Der Richtige Weg Zum Sieg]-- al-Jawab also reminds readers to "not forget us in your prayers" [Vergesst uns nicht in euren Du'a!].

The website is here.

Actually, the website that GIMF is promoting is here, but it's a simple redirect from their free Geocities website. Here's some free advice to the dee-dee-dee jihadis of GIMF: if you're going to try to hide your host, better not go with that banner ad supported option. Retards.

Now, I may be going out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that supporting al Qaeda is a violation of Yahoo's TOS. And, given the fact that Yahoo is running advertisements on that al Qaeda page, possibly a violation of several anti-terror laws in both the U.S. and Germany.

You can report this abuse to Yahoo here.

3 FYI: It's been my experience that Yahoo takes 3-5 days to get moving on most ToS items.
