Stop the Islamisation of Europe demonstration in Brussels on 9/11 banned!!

Some interesting things are happening with our brothers and sisters over in Europe. Looks like they are finally saying enough is enough, but their efforts are being thwarted at every turn, not surprisingly.

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.

According to SIOE, Thielemans is waiting for specifics from the Police before he decides whether he will ban the AEL demonstration or not. I think we all know what the outcome will be.

So much for equality and freedom of speech!!

Although there's not much we can do, there is a petition that you can sign, here, asking Thielemans to allow the SIOE protest.

Our European friends are planning on demonstrating anyway, brave souls. I join them in spirit!!

In solidarity,

Thank you for this post, Incog. I had only read of the SIOE demonstation, not the other events going on. Will they never learn? The appeasement of Europe has put them in the mess they are in now.

Bless those following through with the demonstration and their courage.

it is unfortunate either the european socialists, or those of the left in this country, are sympathetic to the islamos. they fail to realize that those they cater to will have no sympathy towards them. this may have inspired me to a future post myself incog, and i owe you all the credit!!!

Debbie said...

There are sister projects, SIOE for Stop Islamization of Canada; and America; and Australia; and Denmark; ... it's spreading. September 11 will be a very important day. Everyone needs to speak out and stop the spread of Islam's control.

Its like a virus,they were a minority group in most countries and now they are spreading everywhere.Its a start with trying to stop them now.

lizze said...

This is not good news. Hopefully the public pressure can overturn this ban.

I have signed the petition.

Thank you Incognito for informing & highlighting this!!

You always give everyone the same freedoms as Americans and that just isn't the case. Free Speech and the right to protest what you object to just isn't a world wide right. I agree in spirit but am not surprised that others don't have the right to freedoms that we have. The funny part is the counter demonstration will probably happen with the Brussels approval and the protest won't. MUD

Cassandra said...

Thanks a lot Incog, for throwing your weight behind this. The AEL (crypto Hizbollah) involvement is very bad news. These guys are looking for an excuse for whatever battle. Once you read the 'article' in The Brunei Times, authorised by what these days passes for a 'journalist' - Eva Vergaelen - you'll understand how these people are trying to whip up the emotions, with sheer lies if they have to.
Next issues will be 1. will the mayor give the AEL permission for their demo against 'racism', and 2. the coming week the result of a complaint against the SIOE prohibition lodged at the Council of State (if that is the correct term).
For the USA rally please coordinate with Foehammer.
We Shall Overcome!

'article' in The Brunei Times, authorised ... authored, rather - sorry!

No one can "give" you the right to free speech, it is, by natural law, an inalienable right. Governments can only choose to protect it or suppress it. So, not to be a pedant or split hairs, but the appropriate response is that the freedom of speech and dissent are not "recognized" by governments world wide, and are therefore suppressed. That is what is inherent in the definition of an inalienable right.

Incog - are we surprised?! No - just really ticked off!

Incognito said...

KAREN: Me too, till I did some research. Problem is the people want action, it's the leaders that don't. Indeed, they are very courageous.

PAT: They will have sympathy for no-one. I will look forward to your post.

DEBBIE: yes, it will.. I will be on a plane that day. But we all need to speak out and support those things in person, as well. I know I will if able.

FRASYPOO: They are becoming less of a minority and faster than we think.

LIZZE: No, not good news. Will be interesting to see what happens. I too signed the petition, for all the good it will do, but you never know.

MUD: I'm going to have to agree with Jon, below. Freedom *is* an inalienable right.. it is a God given gift, whether leaders choose to ignore that is a totally different thing. And you are probably right.. the Arab protest will probably happen, because they always do.

CASSANDRA: Not much we can do from over here.. but.. it can inspire us to do the same thing. I will be interested to see how it all plays out. Yes, I will keep myeslef updated over at Foehammer's blog.

JON: Amen to that, Jon.

STRAWB: No.. not surprised, and yes, very ticked off. The Muslims have always been allowed to protest with their hate-filled banners and nothing is said about that.

MUD said...

Jon, You are young and are you an American? There are a lot of "rights" that we have that just don't freely transcend to other countries. We don't realize that the security guards in German airports carried automatic weapons years before 9/11. No one said anything. They were armerd and would shoot you if you in any way threatened anything. Here we hire rent-a-cops and in a lot of cases they aren't armed. Big difference.
I would defend your right to say your piece here with my life but everyon needs to remember that the rest of the world ain't America. MUD, COL, (Ret), US Army
