BRUSSELS (AFP) – Brussels mayor Freddy Thielemans has banned a protest against the “Islamisation” of Europe planned for 11 September, the anniversary of the suicide attacks on the US, his spokesman said Thursday.
The “Stop the Islamisation of Europe” (SIOE) group last month announced its intention to organise a protest in front of the European parliament building, six years after the suicide plane attacks in New York and Washington.
The group, which started in Denmark, considers Islam “a tool for introducing Islamic imperialistic politics.”
On its website it argues: “Islam and democracy are incompatible due to teachings within the Koran itself.”
The group hopes to bring thousands out onto the streets of the Belgian capital on 11 September. It is organising other protests to take place simultaneously around the world, notably in the United States, Canada and Australia.
But 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,” he added.
The city of Brussels authorities receive between 500 and 600 requests to hold protests each year. In the last five years only six have been banned, said Dassonville.
An Open Letter to Europeans
by Paul Weston
It had to happen. It was just a matter of when. Writers on sites such as Gates of Vienna have spent years detailing the totalitarian impulses of the European Union and the associated apparatchiks riding on their coat tails.
And now it is out in the open. A peaceful democratic protest, organised by people with no trace of historically violent behaviour, is banned because the Mayor of Brussels, a Mr Freddy Thielemans, believes he cannot guarantee the safety of the public, and perhaps more pertinently, does not wish to upset the delicate sensibilities of Brussels’s large resident Muslim community.
What a sense of relief! Those hours spent researching, reading and writing up on the European Union and it’s dastardly plans for its “community” of citizens were not in vain. No matter how right we may have thought we were, there was always that nagging doubt in the back of one’s mind that perhaps it was all too fantastical to be true; is it really possible that white Western European leaders (unelected, but surely that too could not be true, after all we live in a democracy, do we not?) were intent on betraying and sacrificing their own people, all half a billion of them, in their pursuit of power and a seat at the never ending trough of financial swill?
But now the face of Europe’s totalitarian New Order has exposed itself in all of its slippery, devious, treacherous, lying, naked ambition. If they are prepared to deny free speech and freedom to demonstrate, then what else will they deny us? Could those scarcely believable tales, spun across the “right wing” web sites, making outrageous claims that the EU wanted to incorporate old Christian Europe into a new Islamic entity called Eurabia possibly be true?
And if that is the case, what of the threat of arrest by Europol, (whose headquarters is rather fittingly the ex-Gestapo headquarters) followed by transportation and trial before Eurojust, with both organisations taking precedence over and above the judicial and police departments of national countries? Can it really be the case that such an arrest can take place for mere criticism of an EU institution, a criticism subsequently identified as a criminal act of xenophobic hatred?

Fat Freddy: Whoring For Eurabia
Freddy’s ban on the 9/11 demo isÂ actually good news. He said more or less openly that we now live in a totalitarian society ruled by Muslims. He probably provoked more people into joining the demo.
