Update Brussels Demo: Germans Back Out, Danes and British Stay Put

From the desk of Paul Belien/Brussels Journal

This afternoon Udo Ulfkotte, the German co-organizer of the anti-Islamization demonstration in Brussels on 11 September, called off the demonstration, which earlier was banned by the Brussels authorities. During the past weeks Ulfkotte claimed that he would bring 20,000 demonstrators to the Belgian and European capital. On his website he announced today that the demo will not take place for security reasons since “extremists prepared to use violence can abuse the demonstration for violent actions.”

The Danish and British co-organizers have immediately expelled Ulfkotte from SIOE (Stop the Islamization of Europe) and say his decision to cancel the demo is “unilateral.” They announce that the demo will go ahead as planned. Anders Gravers, the Danish co-president of SIOE, who was in Brussels today, was told by the Brussels authorities that there may be “terrorist attacks against the demo.” According to the Danish and British SIOE branches the news that there will be a terrorist attack in Brussels is “the final desperate tactic from the authorities” to prevent the demonstration from taking place.

So far Belgium has never been the scene of Muslim terrorism, although Islamists frequently use the country as a logistical support base for actions elsewhere. The Madrid train bombings of 11 March 2004 were planned in Belgium. It has even been suggested that the Belgian authorities have struck a deal with Islamist terrorists, agreeing to turn a blind eye to conspiracies hatched on Belgian soil in exchange for immunity from attack. In a statement from GIA, the Algerian section of al-Qaeda, addressing the Belgian King Albert II but posted to the French embassy in Brussels in June 1999, the Algerian terror movement explicitly referred to such a deal.

This makes it very unlikely that there will be a terrorist attack in Brussels next Tuesday. Unless the Islamists regard an anti-Islamization demonstration in Brussels, even though banned by the Brussels authorities, as a unilateral breach of the deal by the Belgians.

Court Case Drags On. Police Seems Willing to Tolerate Anti-Islamization Demo

The strategy of the Belgian authorities might simply be to drag the case out in order to make it difficult for the organizers to make arrangements for their demonstration. As things now stand the demonstration is still illegal.

The Brussels police are nervous because, despite the Arab European League’s official statement that its Muslim gangs will not counterdemonstrate, Muslim groups are rallying their members to do just that.

  1. USAirways has e-saver fares from all over the US to Brussels as long as they are bought by 9/10 if anyone in the US wants to go

  2. If the demonstration goes through the peaceful ones will indeed interpret it as a betrayal by the Belgians. They’re a touchy bunch who never forgive or forget ANY transgression. 1000 years from now they’ll still talk of it with anger.

  3. This whole thing is hitting me wrong. We, and the Euros, walk on eggshells so the ‘peaceful’ ones do not riot, create mahem and possibly murder – while the same is not expected of them.

    This is why these people are marching against islam. I would join them if I could. What the military, and police, should be doing is making sure they are there and if they are unable to get all the perps who do such violence – then make sure it is on camera and they are brought to justice as soon as possible. And if justice means deportation – then that is it.

    It is about time we all stand up to muslims who think that we are supposed to be tolerant while they are not and they plot to kill us. And that goes for all those masses of ‘moderates’ who think that they can harbor and support the jihadists by ‘charities’ too.

    All those masses of ‘moderates’ who give to ‘charities’ should be monitored heavily. They know very well that in islam charity means – giving money either to the active jihad, or old jihadists who have no other means of support in their old age.

  4. er, “so far Belgium has never been the scene of Muslim terrorism”? While there may not yet have been a large-scale terror attack committed in the name of Islam, cities like Antwerp have seen considerable Muslim violence directed against Jews with several people beaten and murdered in recent years.

    Do we really need to witness a bombing akin to London or Madrid before we admit that Jihad is emerging in Belgium too?

  5. On his website he announced today that the demo will not take place for security reasons since “extremists prepared to use violence can abuse the demonstration for violent actions.”

    He has only woken up now

    The Church of Our Dear Lady in Dendermonde, Flanders (Belgium) features a late 17th century pulpit, sculpted in wood by Mattheus van Beveren, upheld by angels who are treading underfoot the false prophet Mohammed, who is leaning on the Al-Koran.
