A DUTCH court today sentenced a Moroccan-born man to 16 months in jail for threatening to launch terrorist attacks in the Netherlands unless Dutch troops withdrew from Iraq.

The Hague District Court heard the 31-year-old man was arrested in April after he sent emails to the Dutch national broadcaster NOS demanding the Netherlands withdraw its troops within days.

He also sent a threatening letter to the Israeli Embassy that prompted extra security measures, and sent the prime minister's office "an envelope containing white powder that looked like anthrax and a very threatening letter".

What an absolute idiot. Did he give a telephone number for them to call to let him know they were going to comply?

People need to realise in these times that threats of this sort whether made seriously or not will be dealt with in a harsh manner. I am surprised he only got jail time and has not been deported.
