Dutch imam agrees to leave

An imam from a mosque in the southern town of Eindhoven has been detained awaiting expulsion. He is one of three imams who discredited the al-Fourqaan mosque with their inflammatory sermons. The Dutch intelligence service says he inspired young Muslims to wage jihad, or holy war.The imam, a Sudanese from Bosnia, had filed an appeal when his residence permit was revoked earlier this year, but it was rejected by the immigration authorities. He has announced he will leave the country voluntarily and await the outcome of a second appeal against his expulsion abroad.Of the other two imams of the al-Fourqaan mosque, whose residence permits were also revoked, one left the Netherlands several months ago. The other has filed an appeal but will probably be deported soon.
