Banned in Britain
The British seem to be a little hypocritical when it comes to who they let into their wonderful multicultural utopia. They have banned Michael Savage from entering England because they don't appreciate his "hate speech".
They didn't seem to have a problem with paying for a Muslim cleric who has defended suicide bombers to attend a conference on Islam in Turkey however.
The Government paid for Yusuf al-Qaradawi and his wife to fly from their home in Qatar to Istanbul for the two-day event, and for their accommodation in a five-star hotel.
The 80-year-old cleric was the focus of furious protests in 2004 when he visited Britain as a guest of London mayor Ken Livingstone.
Mr al-Qaradawi, who has also called for the execution of homosexuals and opposed equal rights for women, addressed the opening day of the £300,000 conference.
