Imam Promotes Stoning in Amsterdam

The visiting Shariya expert, Haitham al-Haddad has said in Amsterdam that according to Islam, the punishment for adultery should be stoning to death in Islamic countries. He said that he receives many demands from Western women who have committed adultery to go to an Islamic country in order to be stoned. Originally, he should have spoken at the symposium at the Free University in Amsterdam. The university cancelled it because of the bad publicity. Thereupon, the debating center De Balie invited him to speak as it considers that extreme ideas should be countered with debate. A majority of Parliamentarians was against letting Haitham into the Netherlands because of his incitement against Jews, but according to the responsible minister, forbidding his entrance is against European law.
