THE NETHERLANDS - The radical Muslim cleric Sheikh Imam Fawaz Jneid is claiming EUR 55,000 in damages from Freedom Party MP Geert Wilders, claiming he has damaged his reputation.
The cleric was featured in Wilders anti-Qur'an film Fitna.
Wilders says the claim "is the world upside down". He says the imam "has cursed Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Theo van Gogh and Afshin Ellian and said the most terrible things."
