The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Technical Difficulties?

For the last 3-4 days, we've been unable to access certain websites through German ISPs. LGF, Jihad Watch, and other "radioactive" sites come up just fine, but others, like Drudge, Malkin, as well as a variety of non-political sites, return only an error message. Same results using Firefox and IE, and attempts through different ISPs within Germany.

German courts have ruled that the government may block foreign Nazi sites, and I wouldn't be surprised if some overzealous tranzi put Drudge and Malkin in this category. Alternatively, an undersea cable gets cut from time to time, drastically restricting access to US servers. But neither of these possibilities explain why we can access some US and UK sites but not others, such as bicycle parts or gravesites of famous scientists. Any info on what the story is would be much appreciated.
