Schoolboy stabbed by Moroccan ‘youth’s’
Tonight (Wednesday evening) heavy rioting erupted in Turkish quarters of Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Several cars were torched and shops destroyed. Police forces were unable to restore law and order in the boroughs of Sint-Joost-ten-Node and Schaarbeek where since last Sunday the animosity among Turks is running high. Turkish flags are omnipresent. In some streets the Turkish crescent and star adorns almost every house.
The Turks’ anger was provoked by rising tension with Kurds along the Iraqi-Turkish border and by the debate in the American Congress about the Turkish genocide of the Armenians in 1915. On Sunday night Turkish youths in Sint-Joost destroyed the pub of Peter Petrossian, an ethnic Armenian who had to flee for his life. Apparently, some Turks think that by attacking the Armenians in Brussels they can convince the world that the Turks never committed a genocide of the Armenians.
Today a 15-year old Amsterdam schoolboy was stabbed by youths.
The boy survived the attack but is seriously wounded. On 11 October a 16-year old Amsterdam boy was stabbed to death in school. On 4 September a similar incident occurred in the Belgian city of Ghent where a 14-year old Belgian boy fought for his life after being stabbed in the throat by two immigrant youths from his school.
* The mainstream media are completely ignoring it, but the car torchings are continuing in Amsterdam. Klein Verzet has the news that the Dutch government is apparently trying to suppress.
Did it seem that the ‘Dutch Intifada’ had died down on Monday morning, with no cars set alight in the night of Sunday to Monday, last night it happened again (NL). Three cars were set on fire by ‘rioters’ in the Amsterdam burrough of Osdorp, neighboring Slotervaart (see map).
Needless to say that the perpetrators of this wanton destruction of property are still at large. But what is interesting is a rather offhand remark, made in the reporting of Amsterdam TV station AT5 (now redacted out), that the firemen extinguishing the fores were escorted by police on motorcycles and riot police (NL).
That remark actually raises more questions then it answers. Were these escorts by riot police necessary? Or precautionary? Have the fire brigades in recent days become the target of the Amsterdam ‘youth’, like so many emergency services in France and in Sweden (to name just a few examples)? But if that is the case: Why haven’t we heard about this harassment?
One would be forgiven for feeling that the Amsterdam authorities are doing everything within their power to control the flow of information around the goings on in Slotervaart and surroundings. They give off a stunning impression of an old-fashioned soviet themselves. In their desperate attempts to shield the Dutch population at large from finding out the truth they seemingly have organized a total clampdown. Not on the ‘youth’, who are still able to roam the streets of Slotervaart, Geuzenveld and Osdorp, setting fires wherever they please, with impunity. But rather on the reporting coming out of that besieged part of Amsterdam.
Reports of ‘sympathy car-b-ques’ in The Hague reach us via Nieuw Religieus Peil, which links to a report in the Telegraaf (NL) telling us how the inhabitants of the The Hague neighborhoods of Transvaal and Schilderswijk are too afraid to press charges of vandalism, which has seen a sharp increase this last week.
