You're only asking for a redirect for "www.whitemountainsar.net," not 
"whitemountainsar.net," and you're getting exactly what you ask for. Put 
the [rewriteRule] in a [WWW] block instead. See the DomTool/Examples 
wiki page for examples.

Also, it would be nicer to redirect to a proper URL by including the "/" 
after "....org".
