Prague – The controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders will arrive in Prague in end-November and present his opinions, senator Jiri Oberfalzer (Civic Democrats, ODS) told CTK today, adding that he will not appear in the Senate as originally planned, however, but at another place.

The Senate media commission, of which Oberfalzer is chairman, abolished Wilders’s invitation to the Senate last week after Senate chairman Premysl Sobotka (ODS) and the ODS dissociated themselves from the event.

The invitation was also criticised by the chairmen of the foreign committees of both houses of parliament who are Social Democrat (CSSD) members. They said Wilders’s opinions are xenophobic.

Wilders, critic of Islamism and immigration, will arrive at the invitation of Oberfalzer and server that is orientated similarly like Wilders.

Oberfalzer said Wilders will make a lecture in Palace Aventin in Prague centre that will be followed by a discussion on November 30. “Nothing else will be held,” he said.

Weblog GeertWilders – Turkey Frets About Geert Wilders’ Planned Visit:

The Turkish government fears a scheduled visit by Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, saying it could dent Turkish relations with the Netherlands and Europe. But many secular and religious Turks say they would welcome a debate with the polemic politician.

A planned visit to Turkey by Dutch members of parliament is up in the air after the Turkish Foreign Ministry on Tuesday said the delegation would not be welcome if it included Geert Wilders, the controversial leader of the populist Dutch party Party for Freedom (PVV). Wilders, known for his anti-Islam film “Fitna” and for comparing the Koran to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” strongly opposes Turkey’s accession to the European Union.

Burak Ozugergin, from the Turkish Foreign Ministry, told the news agency ANP: “Such a fascist and a racist is not only unwelcome in Turkey but also in many European capitals. We can’t find anyone who wants to meet him.”

Islamization Watch – Turkish government fears a Wilders visit, opinion leaders welcome chance for debate

Sky News – Controversial Dutch MP Flies Into London:

Geert Wilders was initially barred from coming to the UK because of fears that his controversial film on Muslims would spread “hatred and violent” messages.

In the film – Fitna – Mr Wilders argues that the meaning of the Koran has been harshly interpreted by fundamentalists who are keen to preach their brand of Islam to Muslims.

The far-right politician will be meeting Lord (Malcolm) Pearson, the peer who originally invited him to screen his film in the House of Lords in February, when he was refused entry.

Another date for the screening has yet to be set.

Invited by Oberfalzer, Wilders, an opponent of multiculturalism, is to speak in the Czech Senate and to show his anti-Islamist 15-minute film Fitna at the end of November.

Wilders’s appearance in the Czech Senate was rejected by chairmen of foreign affairs committees of both parliamentary houses.

They said it was “appalling and quite ill-considered.”

Britannia Radio – A personal message for Geert Wilders from Ashley Mote (MEP 2004-09):

Last weekend I spoke at a conference in California organised by Radio Liberty. I was asked to speak about the threat to the world from the burgeoning European Union.

  One of the reactions I got was nothing directly to do with my speech. But it seemed to me so important that I should record it here. Many Americans have become increasingly cynical about the role, effectiveness and direction of the United Nations. A distinct dislike of the UN now exists in the under Topics. Then click Immigration.

 They frequently doubt that the UN’s objectives are in the interests of the USA, but nonetheless find themselves cast in the role of enforcers. They see themselves as doing the world’s dirty work at American expense in terms of lives and money.

 “And where are the rest of you…?” was the way one man put it. He spoke for many.

 Yes, he acknowledged that the UK was often by their side, but who else…? Good question.

 A large and attentive audience listened even more closely to my talk than I expected, especially when the second half was devoted to a summary of Geert Wilders’ speech in New York a year ago. You may recall it was about The Islamization of Europe.

 After the conference, many people were so concerned at the issues Wilders raised they asked if I would put the full text of the speech on my website. It follows as a separate posting, and is on my website

5 11 2009

In the course of putting together this week’s Wilders Round-Up, I came across this little nugget from

Wilders does boost fear of Islam: poll

Some 50% of the Dutch think Geert Wilders’ anti-immigration party PVV is on the extreme right of the political spectrum and 66% think Wilders is stimulating a fear of Islam, according to a new poll by Maurice de Hond.

And a further 46% think Wilders is encouraging a hatred of the government, the poll of 1,500 people showed.

Last week the Volkskrant leaked details of a preliminary government report on polarisation in the Netherlands which said the PVV is an ‘extreme right-wing’ grouping and a threat to social cohesion and democracy. The report’s conclusions are still being finalised.

Egads! A threat to social cohesion! Hatred of the government! Whatever shall we do? Geert Wilders may well become the new V. And as for the supposed ‘hatred’ of Muslims that Geert Wilders is fomenting, who, exactly, has established just what ‘fear’ is? Is it an extreme, irrational dislike of all Muslims everywhere? Or is it a deep concern about and dislike of the conduct of certain extremist Muslims immigrating into Holland? Because if the latter, then I would say that Wilders is accomplishing the job that he’s set out for himself to accomplish.

Indeed, this poll just seems to confirm my theory: the political and media establishments simply don’t know how to handle Geert Wilders. He’s too much for them, and as such, he’s considered dangerous, particularly to the social order that those establishments enjoy so much. Or rather, this poll shows that those attitudes have filtered down to the general populace at large.

Five Feet of Fury – Come to think of it? Don’t piss me off, either – Our Views: Free speech is tough sell

Law Central – Lawyer of the week: Arfan Khan:

Arfan Khan, a barrister at the Chambers of Mark Littman, QC, acted for Geert Wilders. The controversial Dutch MP was barred from entry to the UK to address the House of Lords in February. That bar was overturned by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal and he has now visited the UK. What were the main challenges in this case and the possible implications?

Finding the time to sleep in the week leading to the hearing, as was dealing with an extraordinary amount of media attention. The decision has huge implications for the freedom of speech and authoritatively states the correct applicable test for exclusion cases in general. The effect is that we should rejoice in the freedom of expression, rather than suppress it and that there can be no discrimination between UK and foreign nationals through premature exclusion.

Geert Wilders

A controversial Dutch lawmaker and fierce critic of Islam received an overwhelming positive response from a largely Jewish audience in Center City, just days after several dozen students protested outside Temple University, the parliamentarian’s first local stop. Both events took place under tight security. Geert Wilders, the leader of the Netherlands Freedom Party, has angered Muslims by claiming that terrorism and violence are central components of Islam, as opposed to products of an extremist, fringe subset.

Wilders is facing charges of incitement to hatred in his native country for producing a short film called “Fitna.” The documentary has been widely viewed on the Internet, and essentially argues that the West is under siege from radical Islam.

Wilders, who has called for limiting Muslim immigration to Europe, has portrayed himself as an advocate of free speech. He’s even become a darling in certain conservative circles.

“I have nothing against Muslims. I do have a problem with Islam,” said Wilders to a burst of applause during an Oct. 22 speech held at the Union League of Philadelphia. “The Koran is an evil book; it calls for murder, terror and war.”
