A Nashville, Tenn., hotel has summarily cancelled a meeting scheduled in its facilities by the New English Review, which is holding a conference this weekend called "Understanding the Jihad in Israel, Europe and America" and featuring a video presentation by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders.
WND had reported only about 10 weeks ago when Wilders, whose film "Fitna" warns that Islam is threatening Western civilization, was banned from entering the United Kingdom.
Wilders had been invited to Britain in February for a special private screening of "Fitna" for Parliament in what already has been a controversial event because of challenges to his right to show the film.
"Fitna" features Quranic verses shown alongside images of the 9/11 terror attacks, the 2004 attacks in Madrid and the 2005 attacks in London.
The film calls on Muslims to remove "hate-preaching" verses from the text of their holy book.
Wilders, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, has been living under 24-hour police protection since 2004. Al-Qaida has called for his murder.
