Netherlands: Imam to sue Wilders

Radical Dutch imam Fawaz Jneid is suing Geert Wilders for 55,000 euro in damages for being unjustly connected in Wilder's movie, Fitna, with extremism and terrorism.

This according to a letter that Wilders received this week from Jneid's lawyer.  The imam is claiming that Wilders injured his 'good name and honor'.  Also, his photo was used without permission in the anti-Koran movie.

Wilders says he is not worried and that he does not plan to pay even 55 cents.  The politician is surprised that the imam had just now come out with his demand, as the movie had been out for three months.

Fawaz's lawyer was unreachable for comment.
