Australia May Block Visit by Geert Wilders

Australia is faced with a potential timebomb as the Government considers whether a visa should be granted to prominent anti-Islamic Dutch MP Geert Wilders.

Wilders, who is protected 24 hours a day by bodyguards because of his views, believes Islam is a "violent and dangerous" religion and has compared the Koran to Adolf Hitler's biography Mein Kampf.
