Dutch MP and hard line critic of Islam Geert Wilders has lodged a police complaint against an internet hate rap. The rappers, who dubbed themselves Youssef and Kamal, threatened to cut or even "saw off" Wilders' trademark wig-like peroxide-blond hair.

The young MP, who represents the one-man faction Groep Wilders in Dutch Parliament, has adopted an aggressively anti-Islamic position, claiming that Islam and democracy are "not well-matched, not even in a million years."

Since airing his views, Wilders has been under constant threat by Islamists who want him dead. On the web several video clips have appeared which called for his beheading. Wilders has six body guards and has slept in a prison cell to protect himself against possible attacks.

Although Wilders hasn’t been threatened physically by the rappers, his complaint will be taken seriously by Dutch authorities. Earlier this year a Dutch court sentenced two members of a rap group to 150 hours community service for writing a rap song with lyrics intimidating controversial Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

To avoid legal action, Youssef and Kamal on Friday quickly released a second rap, simply called "Sorry, Geert Wilders".
