The Sunnah mosque in The Hague has suspended Sheikh Fawaz for at least three weeks for allegedly insulting board members and disturbing a meeting. In an interview with Radio Netherlands Worldwide, Fawaz al-Jneid voiced anger and frustration.
Sheikh Fawaz is known for his extreme opinions. In the past, he said he wished Dutch politician and anti-Islam activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and writer and film maker Theo van Gogh, who was murdered in 2004, would contract a deadly disease. He sued populist MP Geert Wilders over his anti-Islam film Fitna. He is also said to approve of polygamy. But he has also denounced groups such as Sharia4Belgium and Shariah4Holland saying their views were too radical.
