Esther from Islam in Europe temporarily resurrected her blog for the following post: Sharia Sisters, an off-shoot of the radical Sharia4Belgium, is allegedly behind false accusations against a 23-year-old teacher at a kindergarten school in Antwerp. She was accused of raping a 4-year-old boy. Esther has no English source for the allegations, but plenty of Dutch ones.
The story started when a teacher was accused of sexually abusing kindergarten kids in the Antwerp school De Blokkendoos, this past June. For days parents protested outside the school, and finally the school was forced to close a week ahead of the summer vacation. The teacher and administration of the school also received death threats and had to go into hiding. The case has not been officially closed, but the Mayor of Antwerp Bart De Wever recently announced that the teacher had been wrongly accused.The rest here.
And this is where it gets interesting.
It turns out that the mother who first complained is Najat Mejdoubi, who said the teacher had raped and abused her 4-year old son. Majdoubi is a member of Sharia Sisters, a sister organization of Sharia4Belgium. Dozens of parents joined in the accusations, three turned to the police.
It's not clear whether the hysteria that followed was orchestrated by any organization, but according to a court source, the case fits well with the Sharia4Belgium strategy. "We saw the same phenomenon with the niqab incident in Molenbeek last year. A number of extremists tried to use the De Blokkendoos story to incite the community against everything non-Muslim." The source continued, that though there were protests at the school, the inciters hadn't managed to inflame the rest of the Muslim community, which is to the merit of the Muslim community itself.
