American Christian Convert Flees Netherlands Amid Death Threats


Eric Leijenaar, Worthy News Senior Special Correspondent reporting from the Netherlands

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (Worthy News) -- A well known American scholar who converted from Islam to Christianity has interrupted his tour in the Netherlands because of death threats, an organizer said Wednesday, April 22.

Mark A. Gabriel left Monday, April 20, after the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) advised him to leave Europe, said Jewish-Christian pastor Ben Kok, who accompanied him to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

The 51-year-old Islam critic was to have stayed till at least April 25, said Kok in a statement to Worthy News' Netherlands-based news partner Manna-Vandaag.nl

It was not immediately which group or persons were responsible for the threats.

Gabriel, which is not his real name, grew up as a Muslim in Egypt. However he reportedly became disappointed in Islam while working as a teacher and imam at Cairo's Al-Azhar University.

After he became a Christian, Gabriel fled to the United States where he received asylum.

It comes amid mounting concerns about the growing influence of Muslim extremism in Europe.
