Geert Wilders

 Geert Wilders, a member of the Dutch Parliament since 1998 and the founder of the Party for Freedom, has been re-invited to screen his latest film, 'Fitna' , in the House of Lords later this month after the original event was cancelled in the face of threats by Lord Ahmed to mobilise 10,000 Muslims outside Parliament to stop Mr Wilders entering Parliament.

Speaking yesterday  (11/02/09) to the BBC the MP said that in spite of the attempts by the British Government, he intends to board a plane to London on Thursday afternoon.

The Christian Legal Centre are of the opinion: Lord Ahmed's attempts to silence debate on the true nature of Islam fail.

Mr. Wilders recently delivered an addreass at the Hudson Institute in New York entitled: 'When the Lights go out in Europe".
Wilders was interviewed by Danish TV (18/03/09) when he explained his views and the background to the Fitna movie.

Mail: Muslim peer who invited terror suspect to visit Parliament

A Muslim peer at the heart of the opposition to extremist Dutch politician Geert Wilders's visit once invited an Al Qaeda terror suspect to visit Parliament.

Three years ago, Lord Ahmed, Labour's first Muslim peer, invited Mahmoud Abu Rideh to Westminster, after meeting him at the Regent's Park mosque.

Abu Rideh, a Palestinian, had been detained in Britain in December 2001 on suspicion of fundraising for groups linked to Al Qaeda.
