Oooooh, that Mohamed....Mohamed the Egyptian.:

Good news from Italy.

"Italy arrested an Egyptian man suspected of helping to plan the Madrid train bombings as police across Europe swooped on Islamic militants in coordinated anti-terror raids, officials said Tuesday.
Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed, known as 'Mohamed the Egyptian,' was seized in Milan in a operation that Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said was aimed at a 'dangerous group of terrorists close to al Qaeda' which had been planning more attacks. "

Let me get this straight. This guys name is:Rabei Osman Sayed Ahmed. Which is possibly somewhat unique in the Muslim World, but his nick name is 'Mohamed the Egyptian." Which is sort of like saying "John the American" and puts him in the company of about 10 million other Egyptians.
