UPDATE : 17.00 GMT. This is an ongoing attack. At couple of visitors to this blog have said that the TV stations website is online again, so i had a look and it was, but now seems to be down again. As im not very tecchie minded myself im not sure how this works, but imagine if the site was back up, there would be an attempt to bring it down again. This seems to be the case as now

Hello,

I am writing to inform you that you are hosting a website on the IP 74.53.245.166 with the domain rcmlibya.org.

As I am sure you are aware, the US Stance on Gadaffi and its goverment is the removal and replacement with a diplomatic new state.

This website is a propaganda website supprting the current goverment that has opened fire on its own people and is attempting to stop the introduction of a democratic society.

In line with the US Goverments stance on Gaddafi and Libya, you should follow suit by suspending or removing the website in question.

You yourself contradict your own terms of service in terms of……

“Threats & Harassment: The SoftLayer network can be utilized for any type of individual, organizational or business use. This does not include threats to or harassment of individuals, organizations or businesses, unless it falls within the bounds of protected free speech under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. SoftLayer seeks to serve only as the medium of exchange for information and refrains from decisions on freedom of speech.”

By hosting a website, for a country where freedom of speech is restricted and witheld from its people.

Please take action on your own scruples along with my own, which I am trying to express in this email, and cease hosting this anti-humanist website.

With great concern,
****YOURNAMEHERE****””

The website normally should look something like this

But now looks like this.

    I am writing to inform you that you are hosting a website on the IP 74.53.245.166 with the domain rcmlibya.org.

    As I am sure you are aware, the U.S. position on Gadaffi and its goverment is the removal and replacement with a diplomatic new state.

    This website amounts to propaganda supporting the current regime that has vowed to crush any dissenting voices and has in fact opened fire on its own people in its attempt to stop the introduction of a democratic society.

    In line with the U.S. government’s stance on Gaddafi and Libya, you should follow suit by suspending or removing the website in question.

    Your own Terms of Service states:

    “Threats & Harassment: The SoftLayer network can be utilized for any type of individual, organizational or business use.

    By hosting a website for a dictatorship of a country where freedom of speech is restricted and witheld from its people, you are contradicting these Terms.

    Please take action on your part to align your company’s practices with its own scruples, along with the democratic and humanitarian principles of the Free World, and cease hosting this anti-humanist website.

    With great concern,

  2. I think what is happening in Libya is not a revolution, but it is a civil war supported by the west. The western governments are not democratic themselves and how come they want to bring democracy to Libyans! I live in one of the western countries for the past 30 years and I have to choose between two parties that have the same pathetic policies that we can’t differentiate between them. You can ask anyone in my country of what is the difference politically between the two famous parties, you won’t have any answer. So, this is not democracy, and the same goes for all the western governments including USA. As soon as the Americans voted for Obama the black African president , I realized that their target is to invade Africa. What is the difference between Bush the republican and Obama the democratic, unfortunately zero difference. Both of them have the same agenda. May be this Agenda was dictated on all of the western leaders from above, secret under-earth power for example. I am not Libyan by the way, but I only hate double standard.

    • You make some good points. However, here’s where you lost me (and your credibility):
      ” As soon as the Americans voted for Obama the black African president ,…. “

  3. In addition attacking Libyan tv on-line stations is not democratic nor respect for the freedom of speech. It is a cowardly act that aim to silence the voice of the others.
