* Â Holland is sick, but the cowardice of the UK is absolutely disgraceful:
Dutch Right-wing politician and controversial anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders has been refused entry to the United Kingdom despite being invited to visit by a member of the House of Lords, the British parliament’s upper chamber.
Update:Â The matter was decided in Great Britain by the -execrable- Â British minister of justice Jack Straw, because it concerns internal security. For this reason minister Ernst Hirsch Balin (CDA) of justice will get in touch with Straw.
* Who could forget theÂ sniffling, groveling Jack-(ass) Straw who owes his seat to the Muslim vote! A maggot in human form!
Note to Brits: It’s not Wilders you should be keeping out of England, it’s the Muslims that want to take over your country!
Mr Wilders (pictured), who was due to go to London this Thursday, received a letter today, 10 February, from the British ambassador to the Netherlands telling him that he was not welcome, reportedly because his visit would constitute a threat toÂ public order.Â
Mr Wilders responded to the decision in fighting mood, telling Dutch media that he still intended to travel to London:“I’ll see what happens at the border. Let them put me in handcuffs.”
Dutch Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen’s response was also firm. HeÂ contacted his UK counterpart, David Miliband, by telephone and voiced his dissatisfaction that a member of the Dutch parliament – Geert Wilders is in fact also the leader of a political grouping, the Freedom Party – has been prohibited from entering a fellow European Union member state.
Geert Wilders, perhaps best known outside the Netherlands for having made the video Fitna, in which the religion Islam and its holy book the Qu’ran areÂ attacked as providing a basis for terrorist attacks and for the undermining of western democracy and values, had been invited to London for a showing of this film to members of the British parliament.Â
Giving a somewhat modern technological twist to this diplomatic tiff, Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen used the internet social networking and communications site Twitter to announce that he had phoned his counterpart David Miliband to complain about the British decision to refuse entry to Geert Wilders.Â
The invitation to do so was extended to the controversial Dutch politician by a member of the unelected House of Lords.Â
Mr Verhagen commented regarding the showing of Fitna in the British parliament that this was a matter for the House of Lords to decide on, but added: “the fact that a Dutch parliamentarian is refused entry to another EU country is highly regrettable.”
Geert Wilders was initially to have shown his video to the British parliament in January, but those plans were cancelled following fierce protests from the UK’s Muslim community.
* Once again: smears of “right wing” and skewed reporting: it was the excremental, abominable token Muslim with the title of “Lord” Ahmed who threatened parliament that he would activate 10.000 Muslim protesters, not “fierce protests from the Muslim community”…..
* Is Britain a nation of beggars?
Update 2:Â “Don’t attack us please”, UK ads to say on Pak TV
LondonÂ The British government will air ads on Pakistani television urging terrorists to not attack Britain.
* That’ll work!
Prominent British Muslims will star in the British Foreign Office-funded Â£400,000 (approximately Rs 2.9 crore)-campaign that is set to break on Pakistani television next Monday, ‘The Guardian’ reported on Tuesday.
The three-month public relations offensive, called ‘I Am the West’, will also include high-profile events in regions such as Peshawar and Mirpur, ‘The Guardian’ said. Seven in ten British Pakistanis are Mirpuris.
According to ‘The Guardian’, the first three ads in the project will feature British Communities Minister Sadiq Khan, UK manager of Islamic Relief Jehangir Malik, former England Under-19 captain and promising Worcestershire allrounder Moeen Ali, and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Chaudry Abdul Rashid, a Mirpuri.
The campaign, the paper said, will be targeted at ‘15-25-year-old males who are less than well-educated and worldly wise, but potentially susceptible to extremist doctrines’. Nine 30-second commercials, supported by ads on radio, will be aired on PTV, Geo TV and Khyber among other channels. If the Pakistani campaign is successful, it will be extended in Egypt, Yemen and Indonesia.
The central theme of the campaign, ‘The Guardian’ said, “is to assert that there is no contradiction in being a Muslim and being British.” It has four key aims, the daily reported: ‘to ensure Pakistanis realise the west is not anti-Islamic, that British society is not anti-Islam, to demonstrate the extent to which Muslims are integrated into British society and to stimulate and facilitate constructive debate on the compatibility of liberal and Muslim values’.
