Submission + - Extremist website in US taken down (nytimes.com)

mr100percent writes: A US-based website RevolutionMuslim.com, known for inciting violence against the creators of South Park, has been taken down on Friday after the British authorities complained of a post praising a young woman who stabbed and nearly killed a British lawmaker over his support for the Iraq war. Legal experts say that it is difficult for the government to force a site off the Internet, but the government could pressure a site operator or service provider to take it down.
