Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, has been living under the threat of death ever since producing a seventeen minute film in 2008 that links Qur’anic teachings with modern terrorism. Wikipedia reports on Wilders:

On 21 January 2009, the Amsterdam Court of Appeal ordered his prosecution for what it said was “the incitement to hatred and discrimination”. Wilders was also controversially banned from entering the United Kingdom between 12 February 2009 and 13 October 2009, with the Home Office viewing his presence as a “threat to one of the fundamental interests of society”. The ban was overturned after Wilders appealed. He visited the UK on October 16, 2009.
