The al-Shamukh Forum at was terminated by it's USA register after my repeated complaints about the content of the site.

LONDON TELEGRAPH June 30th, 2011.  The al-Shamukh forum was used by the terror group to issue official statements, including its acknowledgement that Osama bin Laden was killed by US special forces in May, and video messages from his successor Ayman al-Zawahiri.  But the website is now completely crippled after its address was revoked and then its contents were deleted from the server that hosted it in Malaysia.

Since about last August, every single thing you've seen from al-Qaeda, the videos of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Bin Laden death statement, has originated from this lone channel,” at al-Shamukh Forum at

The shut down of al-Shamukh Forum at also comes soon after al-Shamukh published a roster of senior government, industry and media figures to be targeted for assassination by lone terrorists. Earlier this month the FBI warned 40 prominent individuals that they were named on the hit list.

The apparent sophistication of the attack on al-Shamukh prompted claims that hackers working for Western intelligence agencies were responsible, (it was, “This is the most significant outage in at least a year, so quite obviously something was a little different this time.” Yeah it was the USA register taking action.
