Hamas: Operating in Iraq and Hosted in the United States

The Islamic Terrorist organization Hamas (Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia), historically based in the occupied Palestinian territories and backed by Syria, has begun operating in the Iraqi theater. Hamas’s Iraq wing currently has two websites hosted in the United States. Hamas in Iraq is currently known as “The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, Iraq: Al Fatih Al Islamy Brigades”.

These websites are “hamasiraq.net” and “hamasiraq.com”and judging by the “registrant contact “addresses of “Hamas, Demaskas, Syria” they appear to be unconcerned about anyone finding them.

HamasIraq.com is hosted in California, United States by Yahoo! Inc.

HamasIraq.net is hosted in Delaware , United States by “Host Department LLC“.

Hamas is designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. Dept. of State.

Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) are foreign organizations that are designated by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended. FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business.

It is a violation of applicable United States legal code for a U.S. based business to enter into a business relationship with a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.

United States Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 113B, § 2339B:

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode18/usc_sup_01_18_10_I_20_113B.html

Providing material support or resources to designated FTO’s.
(a) Prohibited Activities.—
(1) Unlawful conduct.— Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).

Hamas is also designated as an officially sanctioned organization by the U.S. Dept. of the Treasury, “Office of Foreign Asset Control” (OFAC). U.S. businesses operating in violation of OFAC’s guidelines are breaking the Law and may face stiff penalties if prosecuted.
