A Dutch MP who called the Koran a "fascist book" has been sent back to the Netherlands after attempting to defy a ban on entering the UK.
Freedom Party MP Geert Wilders had been invited to show his controversial film - which links the Islamic holy book to terrorism - in the UK's House of Lords.
But Mr Wilders, who faces trial in his own country for inciting hatred, has been denied entry by the Home Office. Read More.
Two things are worthy of note. First, it's ironic that the British government refuses to admit Wilders into the UK because they're worried about Muslims responding violently, since Wilders's entire point is that Islam causes Muslims to respond violently. It's as if Muslims are saying, "How dare you call us violent! We'll teach you a lesson by rioting!" It's as if the UK government is saying, "Of course Muslims respond violently, but we don't want people like Wilders pointing it out. We want to pave a smooth road for the Muslims to take over the UK."
Second, far from protecting Great Britain from violence, the actions of the British government will only encourage Muslims to respond with violence and riots when they don't like something. Muslims in the UK now know that their recent outbursts have intimidated the government, and that Parliament will bow to the Muslim will. What's going to happen the next time Muslims want something? Riots anyone?
