Talk about making Wilders' point:
Brandishing banners saying 'Sharia is the true solution, freedom go to
hell', Muslim protesters met Mr Wilders outside the Houses of Parliament (here)
It was feared that his outspoken views on Islam could spark religious
violence, but this was rejected by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal
Lord Pearson, who invited the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party to
the UK, said his arrival was 'a celebration of the victory of freedom
of speech over those who would prevent it in this country, particularly
the Islamists, the violent Jihadists who are on the march across the
world and in the UK.'
Mr Wilders denied responsibility for the publicity which has greeted his visit.
46-year-old said: 'If anybody has responsibility for this publicity it
is the UK Government and the Home Secretary and not Geert Wilders. (here)
Press conference: Mr Wilders described his UK visit as a 'victory'
'On this occasion the Home Secretary is not minded to recommend that Wilders is denied admission to the UK.
'Clearly Mr Wilders' statements and behaviour during a visit will inevitably impact on any future decisions to admit him.'
The tribunal found there was no evidence to suggest the politician
represented a serious threat, and if trouble erupted the police could
'It was more important to allow free speech than to take restrictive action speculatively,' they said.
UPDATE: Watch all of Wilders' remarks. It is fascinating, as is the dhimmi press.
