He became known as the “hero of the Vienna Terror Night” when he rushed to the aid of an injured police officer who had been shot by the Kosovar Islamist Kujtim F. during a shootout at Schwedenplatz. Numerous appearances on television as well as a book with the catchy title “We are not like that” about racism and “Islamophobia” of the Austrian population towards him and his family followed. Now the 24-year-old Osama El Hosna himself is being targeted by the Austrian authorities.
El Hosna is said to work for an organization that forwarded part of the donations received to the Islamist terrorist organization Hamas. His commitment should also be documented by photos. His lawyer is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants and former SPÖ politician Muna Duzdar. This is outraged by the allegations and locates racism. “Had he worked for Caritas, that probably wouldn’t have happened. But with a club in which only Arabs are active, you are immediately suspected of being a terrorist.”
