Islamic extremist charges widened

Threats against Oslo’s Jewish community now form part of the indictment against Arslan Ubaydullah Maroof Hussain, reports say.



Mr Hussain was arrested, Friday, after writing statements on his Facebook group that left Norwegian Jews feeling targeted.

In his post, the accused wrote comments referring to the incident in 2006 where shots were fired at an Oslo Synagogue.

Researcher Øivind Kopperud does not believe that Ubaydullah Hussain is alone in his views.

He believes the police must view Mr Hussain’s comments as a wake-up call.

“They must listen to the perceived threat related by the Jewish Community representative. It is extremely important that police take the threats seriously, this cannot be dismissed,” Mr Kopperud told Vårt Land.

Research carried out by Oslo’s Holocaust Centre about the synagogue shooting found that 4 percent of people (approximately 100,000 people) asked thought the actions were justified in terms of how Israel treats Palestine.

It also suggested that 21 percent saw the shooting as the latest attack on Jews in a historical context. 18 percent answered that the attacks showed the growing hatred in Norway.

At today’s remand hearing, four police cars were present outside Oslo District Court when Ubaydullah Hussain appeared before judges.

Erling Olstad from Oslo police told NRK they were there as a precaution due to the attention the case has received.

There was no ban on photography during the hearing. Arslan Ubaydullah Maroof Hussain had no objection to being photographed, the broadcaster reported

Mr Hussain is also indicted for threatening two journalists. The prosecution asked he be remanded for four weeks because of the threat of repeating his actions and evidence tampering.
