Noch einmal: Geert Wilders und die Briten

Die Diskussion um die Ausweisung von Geert Wilders aus England reißt nicht ab. Charles Moore schreibt im Telegraph:
Banning Wilders plays into the hands of our Islamist enemies
Mr Wilders’s words and film “would threaten community harmony and therefore [my italics] public security in the UK”. What the Home Office means is, “If you upset Muslims, there will be violence”. With the single word, “therefore”, Miss Smith is making a link which is itself insulting to Muslims. Would she say the same about upsetting Christians, or Jews, or farmers, or socialists, or vegetarians? Of course not. It is only Muslims that scare her. So she is saying much the same thing as Geert Wilders!

Im Guardian erkärt Labour-Lord Ahmed, warum er das Home Office gebeten hat, Geert Wilders die Einreise nach England zu verweigern:
Wilders’ film, Fitna, takes a lot of Qur’anic verses out of context and relates them to some terrible terrorist events, connecting them as though such acts are a religious teaching. I thought this would lead to extremist groups from both sides – far-right organisations like the BNP and extremist Muslims – rallying behind him. As a result of my letters, the home secretary wrote to Wilders to say his presence would “threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK”, and that therefore he was banned from entering the UK under EU laws enabling member states to exclude someone whose presence would be a threat to national security, public order or the safety of its citizens. I agree with her assessment.

Eine ganz andere Meinung vertritt die moslemische Quilliam Foundation: Sie distanziert sich heftig von Wilders Ansichten, sieht aber darin keinen Grund, ihm die Einreise nach England zu verweigern:
The Quilliam Foundation has announced its opposition to the decision by the Home Office to ban Geert Wilders, the Dutch MP, from the UK. The Quilliam Foundation believes that although many of Wilders’ public statements are bigoted, ill-informed and offensive to people of all faiths, this is not an adequate reason to prevent him from coming to the UK.

Und so fasst die Welt die Ereignisse auf der Insel zusammen:  Islamkritiker Wilders testet Grenzen der Freiheit
