The United Kingdom has barred two American anti-Islam activists from entering England this weekend following reports they were planning to speak at an English Defense League rally.
The U.K. Home Office said Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, founders of the organization Stop the Islamization of America, were "subject to an exclusion decision" over concerns they might "foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the U.K."
"The Home Secretary will seek to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the U.K. is not conducive to the public good," the office said in a statement.
Gellar criticized the move in her blog, saying, "The nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead."
"In not allowing us into the country solely because of our true and accurate statements about Islam, the British government is behaving like a de facto Islamic state," Geller wrote.
