Right Wing Conspiracists Claim Islamic Supremacists Envision Internet Takeover

For anyone who believes right-wing conspiracy stories and want to combine it with domain name governance, you need to look no further than American Thinker and a recent article there entitled Islamic Supremacists Envision a Takeover of the Internet.How does this happen? Well, American Thinker says it is because ICANN has changed the membership of its board and that “Europe and North America will now have five seats on its Board of Directors, instead of ten, and a new ‘Arab States’ region will have five seats as well.”The crazies at American Thinker say this is a big deal because at the same time ICANN took out a reference to terrorism from the Draft Applicant Guidebook for new gTLDs, which, the article claims “jihad terror websites can grow and prosper, as ICANN has removed its own ability to police them.”So if you want to see what the American far right believes, or love to read up on conspiracy stories, check out the American Thinker article, although not a lot of rational thinking has gone on in the article!
