As the term is not natively English, you will find that different
transliterations result in slightly different spellings, depending on
how people hear the term and would pronounce the letters.
Similarly, Osama bin Lad(i|e)n is called Ussama Ibn Ladin in German
So I would not worry about the spelling, unless you need to do extensive searched
on the term...
