Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ controversial film was shown in Rome this week, after being refused entry into Britain. Police were in full force and surrounded the immediate vicinity of Wilders’ conference at the Grand Palatino Hotel, where the film was shown. He was awarded the Oriana Fallaci Free Speech Award, an honor that recognizes the parliamentarian as “a symbol of the fight against Islamic fascism and a knight of the freedom of humankind.” The showing in Italy is part of Wilders’ “world tour.”
