TORONTO (JTA) — A website in Canada that advocated the mass killing of Jews is back online after being shut down.
"Filthy Jewish Terrorists," operated by former Toronto college student Salman An-Noor Hossain, reportedly is using a host in Switzerland. Its Canadian web provider had shut down the site in March.
Hossain was suspended from York University; it is believed that he has left Canada.
His site, the subject of a five-month investigation by the Ontario Provincial Police, had called for direct terrorist attacks and said Jews should be "exterminated." Last summer the Ontario police said Hossain "wilfully promoted hatred and advocated genocide of the Jewish community," and he was charged with five counts of hate crimes, but he skipped his court date.
Last month, an Ontario court issued a warrant for Hossain’s arrest on Interpol, the international police agency.
Hossain posted a blog Tuesday identifying himself as the operator of the relaunched site. But reports say the new website is registered with generic information, making it impossible to locate him.
Canada’s spy agency, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, said in a statement that it is "very aware of certain Internet websites which support or incite terrorist violence, and that some of those sites are based in Canada."
