Web site used by al-Qaida to recruit car bombers, encourage war on the West and provide a forum for Islamic militants went online from Phoenix this week, It moved from Tampa just a week ago to Arizona . The Web site, www.ek-ls.org , facilitates discussions on weapons, explosives and propaganda and often serves as a question-and-answer center for terrorists, a review of the Web site shows. The site, a well-known and popular forum for Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers, was the first to report the death of senior al-Qaida leader Abu Laith al-Libi in Pakistan this week. The north Phoenix company hosting the site took it down Wednesday, just hours after being contacted by The Arizona Republic. Bill Warner, a Sarasota, Fla., private investigator who has worked with federal agencies on terrorist-related issues, has been tracking terrorist-related Web sites for months. "The Web sites are a big part of the support network of terrorism financially," he said. "They use the Web sites to request money from the U.S. and the U.K. They ask people to take money to Pakistan." Warner said he blames Web-hosting companies for failing to monitor content. Instead, he said, they wait until the site is brought to their attention to take action. "All you've got to do is look," Warner said, pointing to the Phoenix Web site as an example. "You are one click away. First, there is a very benign front page, but all of a sudden, you see tanks being blown up and Osama bin Laden and martyrs. It doesn't matter that you can't read Arabic
