    The founder of one of Norway's most infamous militant Islamist groups has applied to return to work as a referee, and had his request turned down by the Norwegian Football Association. Arslan Ubaydullah Maroof Hussain, who founded the Prophet's Ummah, an Islamist group, applied to work as a referee for the 2014 season, but was rejected on Tuesday on the grounds that his extremist views would prevent him carrying out the task properly.

A judge said Home Secretary Theresa May should reconsider Mr Hussain’s case, following a High Court hearing in London. ... Hussain was part of a group which hijacked the airliner - which had 197...

    LONDON, July 21 (Reuters) - Olympic organisers are "very alive" to the threat of a cyber attack on the London 2012 Olympics, made more challenging because of its evolving nature, senior Interior Ministry officials said on Tuesday. Ticketing systems, the transport network and hotel bookings as well as security are among potential targets. Olympic security officials are also planning for the possible diversion of aircraft to protect airspace around the venues from terrorist attacks, the officials said. The greatest threat to security at the Games is international terrorism, the government's latest "Safety and Security Strategy" report said.

    A 21-year-old Baltimore man has been arrested for attempting to blow up a military recruitment center in Catonsville with a fake bomb supplied by federal agents. Federal authorities say Antonio Martinez, also known as Muhammad Hussain, attempted to detonate what he believed to be a vehicle bomb this morning at the Armed Forces Career Center in the 5400 block of Baltimore National Pike. Court records paint Martinez as obsessed with Jihad and intent on punishing the military. He praised Nidal Hassan, the U.S. Army major who killed 13 people at Fort Hood, and discussed obtaining weapons and shooting up military...

President Obama's special envoy to the OIC, Rashad Hussain, had been scheduled to address the event, held at the American Islamic College. But after news reports highlighted his participation, Hussain reportedly withdrew at the last minute, citing a "scheduling conflict." This earned him an angry rebuke from websites like this (which the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report asserts is "an arm of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.")"

The embassy wants to emphasize that we strongly condemn the offensive messages, which are contrary to U.S. government policy and deeply offensive to Muslims especially during the month of Ramadan. President Obama made clear in Cairo in his speech on June 4, 2009 that he considers it part of his responsibility as President to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they occur.

    WASHINGTON - President Obama suggested Thursday that his Muslim middle name - Hussein - makes a lot of Israelis nervous about his commitment to the Jewish state. When asked by an Israeli interviewer why many Israelis are "anxious about you," and "feel like you don't have a special connection to Israel," Obama said, "Some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is 'Hussein,' and that creates suspicion." Obama told Israel's Channel 2 TV that apprehension about his name among Israelis could be eased if they checked the roster of his top aides. "Ironically, I've got a...

    On Feb. 20, 2003, Professor Sami Al-Arian of the University of South Florida was arrested by the Department of Justice for his leadership of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a designated terrorist organization. Al-Arian was a radical supporter of Islamic terrorism, a man who announced at rallies that he sought "victory to Islam" and "death to Israel." He created the organization in America, designed, at least in part, to bring terrorists to U.S. soil. On Sept. 5, 2004, law student Rashad Hussain spoke at a Muslim Student Association (MSA) conference. The MSA is in and of itself a troublesome organization, which...

Prior to his appointment, Hussain had served as deputy associate counsel to the president. The remarks in question were initially published by the watchdog group, The Global...

    The controversy involving Rashad Hussain, the president's appointee to serve as Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference, is just getting started. The turmoil caused by Hussain's appointment centers around comments he purportedly made in defense of Sami Al-Arian, a convicted terrorist and former leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Now, questions are rightfully being raised as to how a terrorist sympathizer has risen to such a position within the president's administration. A quick look into Hussain reveals that he has the background of a typical Obama administration official: Ivy League education, career in public service, and an added...

    Something about the chubby middle-aged man didn't sit right with eagle-eyed employees at the Commerce Bank in Drexel Hill on Wednesday. The customer called himself Shahid Batti and pulled out a New Jersey driver's license, a Social Security card and a Pakistani passport, all printed with his given name. But bank employees thought the identifications looked fake - and it was the second time in just a few hours that the man wanted to withdraw thousands of dollars from the Batti account. So the bank called the cops, and officers whisked the man off for questioning. Last night, Upper Darby...

    Why? The other day, my nine year old son wanted to know why we were at war. My husband looked at our son and then looked at me. My husband and I were in the Army during the Gulf War and we would be honored to serve and defend our country again today. I knew that my husband would give him a good explanation. My husband thought for a few minutes and then told my son to go stand in our front living room window. He told him: "Son, stand there and tell me what you see?" "I see trees...

    The Bush administration has a problem. Saddam Hussein is apparently close to completion in making weapons of mass destruction -- including possibly nuclear. His brutal dictatorship would likely use them if for nothing else to coerce his neighbors into submission and he would also seriously threaten Israel's ability to exist. Yet unlike 1991, Saddam has not invaded a country and both the national and international opinion is not strongly for a war. The cagey dictator has been keeping rather quiet, even making noises about letting weapons inspectors back in (yeah right...he may let them in but only on guided tours...)....
