AMSTERDAM — Somali-born Liberal MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali has complained to police that she has been threatened by the imam of a mosque in The Hague.

A spokesperson for the Liberal (VVD) party said the complaint relates to Imam Sheich Fawaz of 'As Soennah' mosque in The Hague.

Fawaz indicated on the internet that Hirsi Ali would be "blown away by the wind of the changing times" and that "the cursing by Allah" awaited her.

Fawaz caused a stir in 2002 when news programme NOVA broadcast parts of a sermon he gave that had been secretly recorded. In his sermon, the imam called for the destruction of the enemies of Islam.
