Who supports terrorism (update)

Further to my earlier post about Jacqui Smith's decision to ban Geert Wilders from the UK as she deemed his
"presence in the UK would pose a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat to one of the fundamental interests of society. The Secretary of State is satisfied that your statements about Muslims and their beliefs, as expressed in your film Fitna and elsewhere would threaten community harmony and therefore public security in the UK."

I am reminded that last year the same Home Secretary decided to allow Ibrahim Moussawi into the UK to address an anti-war rally at Birmingham City Council's offices. Ibrahim Moussawi at the time edited Hezbollah's newspaper and was the former political editor of Hezbollah's television station, which is banned in many countries including France, Spain and the U.S. where its output is seen as anti-Semitic. Moussawi wrote an article for the Daily Star in 2002 to explain the religious basis for suicide attacks. Mousawi has also been reported in the New Yorker magazine as saying that Jews are "a lesion on the forehead of history".

So is Jacqui Smith saying that Ibrahim Moussawi is less of a threat to "community harmony and therefore public security in the UK" than Geert Wilders? If so is this because Jews will, as usual, accept the attacks on them by the likes of Moussawi whilst Lord Ahmed "threatened to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House"?

The more the British government accedes to the demands of one minority in the interests of "community harmony", the more members of other minorities and the majority population may feel that the government is not acting in their interests. The more these feelings are allowed to grow, the more nasty the result may be.

If you want to read about more Islamic extremists that our expense claiming Home Secretary thinks are not worthy of a ban on entering the Country, then Harry's Place has a more comprehensive list than I do.
