The Dutch anti-Islamist politician Geert Wilders has cancelled a planed visit to Prague after his hosts proved unable to find a venue for his appearance. Mr. Wilders was invited by a Czech anti-Islamist website and Civic Democrat senator, Jiří Oberfalzer earlier this month for a screening of his controversial film Fitna and a debate on the subject. His planned appearance in the Czech Senate was banned, and efforts to set up the lecture at Prague’s Aventin Palace also came to nothing after the palace management refused to have him on the premises.
