Translation from Dutch:
The British Government once again is shown shaking in their boots as
soon as Islamophiles object to speeches from critics of Islam.
Was it previously in 2009 Geert Wilders turn to be meted out a entry
ban, this time US Islam critics Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are
banned. “It appears that the British Government has problems with its
memory”, PVV member of parliament Raymond de Roon said. “the ban on
Wilders was reduced to minced meat by the British court, a few months
later”. De Roon is asking the Minister of Foreign Affairs to defend
human rights such as the right to free expression of opinion, and also
to protest the ban by the British Government.
Questions posed by De Roon (PVV) to the Minister of Foreign Affairs
regarding the British ban on critics of Islam:
1) Are you aware of the news 'Pamela Geller And Robert Spencer Banned
From The UK By Home Office, Due To Speak At EDL Woolwich Rally'(1)?
2) Did you also take notice of the letter Pamela Geller received from
the Home Office (2)?
3) Do you agree with me that the fear that expressing an opinion might
lead to violence by others should be no reason to ban such free
expression of opinion? If not, why not?
4) Do you agree with me that in such a situation any Government should
do the utmost to protect the Right to Free Speech, and prevent violence
by adherents and friends of Islam? If not, why not?
5) Are you going to remind the British Government as to their previous
ban on entry for Geert Wilders, as well as to the fact that the Court
made minced meat of that ban (3)?
6) Are you going to convey the displeasure of the Dutch Government
regarding this dhimmi behavior to the British Government, and ask them
not to cave in any further to Islamic complaints and threats, when
individuals want to use their right on Free Speech? If not, why not?
