In the last 24 hours Al-Jazeera has been thrown out of the NY Stock
Exchange, where it has been reporting from for years, and from the 
NASDAQ exchange. More importantly, both their Arabic and new English sites 
are down under massive DOS attacks. They should be given multiple mirrors in 
Europe and US. The mirrors could even use video feeds from their satellite TV,
which I think is still up. There is no uprising in Basra, by the way.

Subject: New English Al Jazeera Site in taken down in U.S. 

Hi all,

   I am a new member of the nettime mailing list. I
read the article about the newly lauched
English-Language Al Jazeera web page. Unfortunately,
on Tuesday morning the site's U.S servers were subject
to a "denial of access" hacker attack. I am outraged
that we Americans have been denied this alternative
source of information. I think it is important tat we
all realize how fearful some Americans can be about
letting other points of view influence our thinking.
The site has not yet been fixed.
 
Here is the link to the washington post article:

Best,

jay
