Amsterdam university cancels Sheikh Haitham invitation
A parliamentary majority has asked Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten to ban the controversial Islamic scholar Sheikh Haitham al-Haddad from entering the Netherlands.
The sheikh had been invited to take part in a debate with Amsterdam students on Friday, but the VU University has cancelled the invitation.
MPs say the British-Palestinian sheikh Haitham Al-Haddad is known for anti-Semitic statements such as "Jews are the enemies of God" and "Jews are descended from apes and pigs." The sheikh, a member of the Islamic Sharia Council in London, says he never made these statements.
