An organization- 'Stop the Islamisation of Europe' (SIOE)- has organized a peaceful, anti-Islamisation demonstration to be held in Brussels on 9/11. However, it turns out Brussels socialist mayor Freddy Thielemans felt the Muslims might be offended by this demonstration, so he decided to ban it.
The demonstration was intended to commemorate the victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks against the USA with a minute’s silence, on the 6th anniversary of those attacks. It was also intended to show that it was Islamist terrorists who carried out that mass murder and nobody else. SIOE considers that conspiracy theories blaming American and Israeli authorities for the atrocities actually dishonour the victims and their families.
The demonstration was also to protest against the growing Islamisation of Europe whereby Islamic practices and sensitivities are increasingly placed above those of non-Muslims. In a meeting on 7th August with the Brussels police SIOE organisers, Anders Gravers, Stephen Gash and Udo Ulfkotte were informed that policing the demonstration would be no more difficult than for any other similar event. However, on 9th August Mayor Thielemans (now known as Caliphate Freddy the Grand Mufti of Brussels) declared he banned the demonstration because he could not guarantee public safety. The mayor’s spokesman Nicolas Dassonville said: “The danger to public order is too high, to allow the Brussels protest to go ahead. The sizeable foreign community living in the area could react to the action.”
Though Thielemans has officially banned the SIOE protest he has, however, okayed a demonstration (for Sunday, September 9th) by an anti-American group of wacko Truthers (“United for truth” ) who claim Israel and the U.S., not the Islamists, were responsible for the 9/11 tragedy. Yes, they are everywhere and spreading like a fungus. [sigh]
What has always been intended as a peaceful demonstration has now been classified, by Thielemans, as criminal. Not that he used those exact words, but by stating the following he is, in essence, saying as much:
Such incitement to discrimination and hatred, which we usually call racism and xenophobia, is forbidden by a considerable number of international treaties and is punished by our penal laws and by the European legislation. The European Court of Human Rights has repeatedly pronounced judgements condemning this type of acts.
Now the latest news from Brusselistan is that the Arab Europe League (AEL) has announced a counter-demonstration, set for September 11, against
“Islamophobia and racism in Europe”. The AEL is known for some violent protests in Antwerp some years ago.It was founded by Diab Abu Jahjah. During the war last year, he went back to his homeland Lebanon to join Hezbollah in it’s fight against Israel. Diab didn’t return. He decided to stay in Lebanon to start apolitical party there. Since then we didn’t here from the AEL anymore,until now.
