It's no secret that we vehemently disagree with anti-Muslim activist and blogger Pam Geller -- and the feeling is mutual. "As for Islamic apologists like Alex Seitz-Wald, it is only a matter of time before he is getting measured for a suicide vest," she once wrote about this writer. But British authorities made a big mistake this week in banning her and fellow activist Robert Spencer from entering the country, ceding to her the moral high ground and striking a blow against free speech.
"It will merely make them free speech martyrs, despite their abhorrent views," Jillian York, the Director of International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation said in an email.
