Brits confuse me.

They bar Dutch MP Geert Wilders from entering the country because he's too controversial and now, just a few days later, they say this is OK. Confused? I am.

CNN: Geert Wilders is 'al Qaeda of the Netherlands'

A: Al Qaeda uses Koranic verses to justify violence
B: Geert Wilders exposes violent verses in the Koran and concludes that the Koran is the source of Islamic violence
Conclusion: Geert Wilders is al Qaeda

A: Nazis use "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" to justify anti-Semitic violence
B: You expose anti-Semitism in "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" and conclude that it is one of the sources of anti-Semitic violence
Conclusion: You are a Nazi

I do find it amazing the conclusions that people (of all religions, politics, colors, genders, and nationalities) can jump to. (And thanks for coming over and commenting, it means a lot.)
