UK government bans Geert Wilders from coming to screen Fitna in House of Co
First, they invite him, then they withdraw the invitation.

Are the MPs going to protest this? The International Free Press Society has issued a letter to the British government

Close race, but right-wing bloc is majority
I'm going to add more to this topic later, but for now, the result is: while Kadima has one seat more than Likud (28-27), the right-wing bloc itself has more than the left-wing bloc (65-55). More on this later. Update: okay, now I'm ready to say more. As Alison Kaplan Sommer tells here, any celebrating that Tzipi Livni and company may be doing at their HQ could be short-lived.

Now, let us see what the results will be tonight.

Tzipi Livni is now trying a silly tactic to get more support: Kadima leader Tzipi Livni on Thursday said that she was not opposed to having Avigdor Leiberman's Israel Beiteinu party in her coalition - as long as he conforms to the government's platform. Speaking to Army Radio, Livni nevertheless said that "voting out of fear is problematic, be it out of fear of Arabs or any other group."
