But will Americans learn from this? ...not too likely with the Obama crowd

Wilder is the man, the last free man standing. Check out the welcome he received from Muslims. Well, at least they're honest about their intentions.

Geert was in London today to meet Malcolm and his lawyers. There were about 30 counter demonstrators.

Geert Wilders greeted with "Islam Will Dominate the World"

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 on Tuesday.

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.

The 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 remove him.

'It was more important to allow free speech than to take restrictive action speculatively,' they said.
