Geert Wilders allowed back into Britain

The head of the right wing Dutch Freedom Party screened his new film
Wilders traveled to London to discuss a possible showing of his film "Fitna" in parliament. The politician sought to visit the UK for a screening of his 15-minute film, "Fitna," a film which seeks to prove that the Koran incites Muslims to violence.

Why wasn't he allowed in Britain in the first place? Answer: "because some in the British government were concerned that his presence could trigger violence."

Banner at the protest against him: ""Shariah for the Netherlands."

Wilders and his politics actually are relatively insane (he's no Pim Fortuyn), but European Muslims have shown a remarkable ability to make the extremist's points for him. And there is a fairly good chance he will be the Netherlands' next prime minister.
