Mufti of Brussels warns: “9/11 Demonstrators Are Criminals”

With thanks to the Brussels Journal

A quote from Freddy Thielemans, the Mayor of Brussels, in an op-ed piece in the Brussels newspaper De Standaard, 20 August 2007:

I decided to forbid the September 11 demonstration “against the islamicisation of Europe.” […] Since 2001 I have allowed over 3,500 demonstrations. This is only the sixth one which I forbid. […] The right to demonstrate exists only inasmuch as it does not cause a disturbance of the public peace and order. […] First and foremost the organizers have chosen the symbolic date of 9/11. The intention is obviously to confound the terrorist activities of Muslim extremists on the one hand and Islam as a religion and all Muslims on the other hand. […] 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. […]

Our society has long fought to achieve that certain codes of behaviour connected with the Catholic religion are no longer enforced as civil law upon everyone. To my knowledge not a single rule specific to the Islamic religion is being enforced in similar fashion. And I see no indication that a large majority of our Muslim population is demanding any such thing.

Let us not forget that Brussels has always shown tolerance and openness towards everyone who lives here or seeks refuge here. Diversity, compromise, tolerance and rejection of extremes remain the foundation of the Brussels identity. […] With regard to the planned demonstration of September 11 “against the Islamicisation of Europe” my mind is made up. And my decision is final: it will not take place.

* Freddy Thielemans owes his position as a mayor to the Muslim vote.

Our comment (TBJ):

Clearly this should be read as a threat. Anyone who intends to participate in the 9/11 demo is a criminal under Belgian and European law: he or she is a racist and a xenophobe (Islamophobe).

Contrary to what the mayor says, rules specific to the Islamic religion are being imposed upon society as a whole. For instance, Brussels has segregated swimming hours for women in public pools; Brussels public schools serve halal meat; Muslims slaughter sheep in the streets of Brussels; the religion-hating (religiophobia, anyone?) Brussels mayor, who toasts the death of the Pope, does not toast the death of Muslim leaders; …

Belgium: Muslims want ban on Easter eggs 

* As long as the West allows commie vote-whores like Freddie Thielemans and London’s ‘Red Ken’ Livingstone to sell the family silver to the Muhammedan invaders, Western culture and civilization will remain under siege:

ANTWERP – “If head scarves are banned for employees who work at the desk at city services in order to guarantee neutrality of services, then we demand that no Christmas trees be set up in city buildings and that no Easter eggs be given out.” Antwerp trade union representative Badia Miri said this on Wednesday in the Gazet van Antwerpen.

  1. The mayor of Brussels sounds like a damn dictator-“I forbid…..”. I thought Belgium was a democracy, or have the peaceful ones managed to turn the place into a secular dictatorship en route to a Koranic one?

    I eagerly await to see what Der Fuhrer will do come Ramadamn, when the peaceful ones engage in their annual celebretory riots. That should be a hot one-in more ways than one.

  2. I don’t understand why the choice if the date 9/11 is a problem? It would serve as a great opportunity to all those muslims that are moderate and hated the terroristact as much as anyone else to also rally to the streets and with a loud and clear voice tell the world that they don’t want their relegion of peace kidnapped by a handfull of lunatics who misunderstood the peaceful quran and the peaceful teachings from the great Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

  3. 9/11 is a great choice because it relates to the Siege of Vienna as well.

    In fact, every year this date should be associated with some demonstration/remembrance for freedom-loving people everywhere.

  4. I wonder how many Muslim protests Freddy Thielemans has banned!

    His views are untruthful, undemocratic and cowardly, and only confirm how quickly Europe (and the rest of the West) is being destroyed from within. Obviously the Mayor is happy with the prospect of living under Shari’a, as he won’t accept any peaceful protests against totalitarianism from the prodemocracy, proliberty plebs.

    I really hope that some kind of demonstation will take place on Sept. 11, it must…

  5. The mayor make the correct ruling. In America one health club is seperation man and woman workout area as afew muslim woman who didnot like strange man looking at them and when some anti-Islamist group jump on the case that Christian and Jewish woman said they didnot want strange man looking at them while working out. In the city I live rhan jew who own one notice there are young men who donot workout at all but sent all of they time looking at the woman working out so the muslim woman complate was valid.
