'An embarrassing decision for this so-called land of democracy'banned from entering England, where they hoped to speak at a rally of the English Defence League on Sunday.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, who set up Stop Islamization of America, and run the website Jihad Watch, have been forbidden from entering the country on the grounds their presence would "not be conducive to the public good".
The far-right English Defence League was planning a march on Saturday ending in Woolwich, south-east London, where soldier Drummer Lee Rigby was murdered last month. Geller and Spencer were both set to attend.
A Home Office spokesman said: "We can confirm that Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are subject to an exclusion decision … We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form."I would like to say it's unbelievable but it's not. Pam and Robert are in good company: Geert Wilders and Moshe Feiglin have been banned (Wilders was later allowed in), while Hezbullah spokesman Ibrahim Moussawi and Islamic Movement Northern Front Sheikh Raed Salah were allowed in (although Salah was subsequently arrested). It took years before Britain changed their laws so that Israeli politicians and IDF officers could enter the country without fear of arrest.
What a morally decrepit country England has become....
