No free speech in Britain for people talking about Islam

Now they've refused Geert Wilders, the controversial Dutch MP, the right to speak about Islam in Parliament because Muslims in Britain have threatened to riot and kill people if he did.

If Wilders was a sexual contortionist who used explicit positions to express his political views, I'm guessing the British government would fall all over itself in its eagerness to make sure he could be heard. Instead, he's the one voice of reason in the debate over Islam in Europe -- about Islam's violent nature, and about the threat that the Muslims in Europe pose to the nations of Europe -- so European politicians are going out of their way to try to silence him.

The irony, of course, is that all the death threats and thuggery only continue to prove Wilders' point, which is that Islam doesn't allow faithful Muslims to coexist peacefully with native Europeans, but requires them to transform European society into a Muslim society (by force if necessary).
