Suspended York student on the run from police

Anti-Semitic website relaunches using a host in Switzerland

An anti-Semitic Islamic website setup by an Ontario student who is on the run is now back on the Internet after being shut down earlier this year by a Canadian web-hosting provider.

The web site entitled Filthy Jewish Terrorists was banned earlier this year in Canada after the Ontario Provincial Police said its founder, Salman An-Noor Hossain, used it as a platform to incite genocide against Jews.

The York University student was suspended in March from his studies.

An international arrest warrant for the 25-year-old Bangladeshi-Canadian has been posted on Interpol. The anti-Semitic website relaunched this week using a host in Switzerland and Hossain updated his blog today from an unknown location.

Canada’s spy agency says in a statement it is aware of terrorist web sites based in Canada and continues to monitor individuals and groups who pose a threat to Canadians.
