Just in, Wilders landed at 15:15 at Heathrow and was arrested.
Britain is lost!
No, they’re going to throw his a&& out of the country. They aren’t lost yet....
At 15:27 Wilders was taken by the customs to be seperated from the other travelers.
Gene or Geert?
They subsidize radical Muslims, and they arrest Wilders. The Britain we once knew is gone.
That site has a piece of an article about Qatada:
The UK is paying Osama Bin Laden's ambassador to Europe over £50,000 in annual welfare benefits.
Abu Qatada is wanted on terrorism charges in Algeria, the United States, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, and his native Jordan. But, in Great Britain, life is good for the Al-Qaeda leader.
Qatada left Long Lartin prison in Worcestershire after the Appeal Court blocked his deportation to Jordan.
He is now living in an £800,000 four-bedroom Edwardian semi in a tree-lined street in West London.
His incapacity allowance will push the familys total annual handouts to more than £50,000.
His wife has been claiming £45,000 a year in child benefit, income support, housing benefit and council tax credit for the past four years.
So, if you're al Qaeda, you get tens of thousands of dollars of welfare a year and get to live in a million dollar house, but if you're Geert Wilders, you get arrested.
arrested on what charge?
Not the most informative post I’ve ever read...
Who is this person?
My apologies. I confused him with one of those radical Islamic imam supporters. mea clupa.
That’s outrageous! How can this happen? This is absolutely ridiculous!!!.... Um, who is Wilders?
Your dhimmitude is appalling. You have been warned.
Looks like there is a ban on him entering the UK:
The Home Office says his opinions “threaten community security and therefore public security”.
So much for free speech.
How come this rule doesn’t apply to the Muslims who want to behead everyone who disagrees with them?
He’s much the opposite, he made the film “Fitna” if I understand correctly - since banned in many places - for exposing radical Islam for what it is.
The Brits decided to deny Wilders entry to Britain for the London premier of his "anti-Islamic" movie. According to the article, "the film features verses from the Koran with images of terrorist attacks in New York, London and Madrid and calls on Muslims to remove 'hate-preaching' verses from the text."
The British decision has sparked a diplomatic controversy between Britain and the Dutch.
Fitna is a 2008 short film by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders. Approximately 17 minutes in length, the film shows a selection of Suras from the Qur’an, interspersed with media clips and newspaper clippings showing or describing acts of violence and/or hatred by Muslims. The film wishes to demonstrate that the Qur’an, and the Islamic culture in general, motivates its followers to hate all who violate the Islamic teachings. Consequently, the film argues, Islam encourages, among others, acts of terrorism, antisemitism, violence against women, and Islamic universalism. A large part of the film deals with the influence of Islam on the Netherlands.
The film’s title, “fitna”, is an Arabic term used to describe “disagreement and division among people” or a “test of faith in times of trial”. Wilders, a prominent critic of Islam, described the film as “a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamization”.
On March 27 2008, Fitna was released to the Internet on the video sharing website Liveleak in Dutch and English versions. The following day, Liveleak removed the film from their servers, citing serious threats to their staff. On March 30, Fitna was restored on Liveleak following a security upgrade, only to be removed again shortly afterwards by Wilders himself because of copyright violations. A second edition was released later.
Thanks for the link.
He’s a member of the Dutch parliament who has been banned from entering Britain because of his anti-Islamic views. Some of the radical muslims in Britain were threatening to amass 10,000 people to prevent his entry, and the pathetic British government sided with them.
