Most statues of Leopold II have plaques in Flanders

Practically all statues of Leopold II in Flanders have been adorned with plaques explaining the role the late Belgian king played in the colonisation of Congo, newspapers of the Mediahuis group reported on Friday, noting that this was contrary to the situation in Brussels-Capital and Wallonia.

The latest commune to take such an initiative is Ekeren in suburban Antwerp. “From a local standpoint this problem is not serious but as the communal administration, we had to take up our responsibilities,” explained Mayor Koen Palinckx, himself a historian.

Contrary to most of the statues of Leopold II scattered around the country, the one that graces the Grand-Place in Ekeren dates back to 1873, long before the monarch obtained sovereignty over Congo.

Effigies of the late king have often been defaced by activists to denounce the honour paid to Leopold despite the reprehensible acts perpetrated under his authority in Congo.

“That’s the work of organisations active nationally, not local initiatives,” said Palinckx. “We met with the Museum of Central Africa in Tervuren and at first we thought of mounting a project involving the schools in the commune, but they declined the offer.

“Since we felt it was our responsibility as the administration to give explanations on Leopold II, we placed an informative plaque there. It explains who Leopold II was because many passers-by don’t know that nor why there is a controversy surrounding him.”

State security warns against extreme right-wing civilian guards

Belgian State Security warns of a potentially new and worrying phenomenon in the country: extreme right-wing civilian guards in cities and municipalities that patrol to protect civilians against refugees.

Justice Minister Koen Geens (CD&V) warned of "several dozen" radical right-wing individuals, who may be ready to use violence, according to the Sudpresse newspapers.

Minister of Justice Geens says in an answer to a parliamentary question if, since the attacks of Paris and Brussels in 2015 and 2016, the security services in Belgium and other countries have noticed an increase in the number of right-wing extremist activists and their activities. The State Security authorities estimate that in this country several dozen right-wing extremist activists might be ready to use violence or to break the law on the basis of their ideology.

The extreme right-wing activists are reckoned to be not only active in cities such as Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Mechelen and Charleroi, but also in rural areas in East and West Flanders, Limburg and Liège.

In addition, State Security is observing right-wing extremist civil guards, who patrol the streets with the self-declared goal of "protecting the local population" against refugees. During his answer in parliament, Geens made a reference to an attack by six members of the extreme right-wing French-speaking party Nation on a Polish homeless man in Brussels.

As one of its basic responsibilities, State Security has to keep an eye on this extremist issue, which includes the extreme right and extreme left.

It occurs to me that as bad as things are…they could get worse. If the shitlibs and the Jews have their way with things, that is.

I’m going to keep a close eye on Sweden and the UK to see if my suspicions are confirmed or not within 18 months time or not.

But the next logical step… wait a sec, let me illustrate it for you.

Destroy Nationalism — Atomize People — Outsource Jobs — Destroy Family Unit — Shackle Population with Usurious Debt — Being Importing Replacements — Arrest Anyone Who Objects — Genocide Natives Once Tipping Point Reached — Hand Over Government to Immigrants.

https://dailystormer.name/things-could-get-worse/

You got it right, Roy Batty, this is ZOG's Shit Coloured Revolution.

Student movement revealed as racist and antisemitic

The youth movement calling itself Schild en Vrienden, which presents itself in favour of Flemish conservative values, is actually a cover for a racist and antisemitic movement, according to a report by the VRT programme Pano.

The name Schild en Vrienden (Shield and Friends) is a reference to the 14th centruy shibboleth which would unmask any French spy trying to pronounce the Dutch words. A hint of French German pronunciation would immediately betray any spy trying to pass as Flemish.

Belgian minister: ‘We have to combat anti-Semitism with all possible forces’

”We carry the Jewish community in our hearts and will never allow that you become the target of blind violence,” said Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Jan Jambon in an address to the gala dinner of the European Jewish Association (EJA) flagship annual conference in Brussels.

The two-day conference—attended by representatives of Jewish communities across Europe, in addition to diplomats, experts and journalists—principally deals with the issue of anti-Semitism in view of next year’s European elections.

“The Jewish community is part of our Flemish, Belgian and European community. We will not allow that our enemies attack part of our community,” added Jambon.

Recalling the “gruesome anti-Semitic attack” in the Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 that left 11 Jewish worshippers dead, the minister stressed that “this is not an isolated incident, but an indication of the general atmosphere within our societies where hostility and violence against the Jewish community still persist, and is advocated by extremists on both ends of the spectrum.”

“Prior and recent events keep forcing us to face the fact that anti-Semitism remains a sweeping threat that we have to combat with all possible forces,” he said, adding that “we have to make sure that the necessary security and protection is being guaranteed.”

He noted that in Belgium, despite the decline of the Islamic State terror organization, level 3 security remains in force in the Jewish neighborhoods in Brussels and Antwerp. “That means that we continue to provide the same military protection as we put in place since the attack on Charlie Hebdo in 2015.”

“It is important that you rest assured that we will keep doing this as long as necessary,” said Jambon. “This takes place in parallel of the financial efforts we contributed in order to provide enhanced structural protection measures with regard to Jewish facilities.”

The dinner was hosted by Rabbi Menachem Margolin, chairman and founder of the European Jewish Association; president of the Consistoire in France Joel Mergui; and Jambon. Several ambassadors in Brussels lit 11 candles in memory of the Jewish victims of the Pittsburgh shooting, perpetrated by a man who yelled “all Jews must die.”

In a reference to the debate on whether Jews should make alliances with extremist politicians, Joel Mergui told the audience: “There are people who like to cry with us our dead, but who are not with us when it concerns our traditions and religious practices. I don’t want to invite these people.”

Israeli organization demands action after Belgian soccer fans chant slogans ridiculing Holocaust

Soccer fans in Belgium chanted anti-Semitic slogans, including ones about the burning of Jews, during a recent match in the city of Bruges, prompting an Israeli lawfare organization to take action.

While the soccer club of Brugge, Bruges’ local club, “strongly” condemned the anti-Semitic incident and some of the fans were banned from the stadium, Yifat Segal, director of the International Legal Forum, said this was not enough and is demanding that the highest authorities issue a broad condemnation.

In a letter to the Royal Belgian Football Association and to Belgian Minister of Sports Sven Gatz, Segal wrote that “as this chant is a clear case of classic anti-Semitism, hatred, racism and incitement to violence, we demand that Club Brugge be condemned, fined and suspended immediately for allowing its fans to provoke such racism.”

UN: Belgium must apologize for colonialism, face its racism

February 11, 2019

BRUSSELS — Racial discrimination against Africans “is endemic” in Belgium’s institutions and the nation needs to apologize for the crimes committed during its colonization of Congo and make reparations, U.N. experts said Monday.

Belgium’s actions in Congo have long been criticized as one of the worst examples of colonial abuse. Writer Adam Hochschild alleged in his 1998 book “King Leopold’s Ghost” that Leopold reigned over the mass deaths of millions of Congolese.

“Art” in Belgium: Naked Adults Simulate Sex in Front of a Semi-Circle of Choir Children

Sep 5, 2019

Quote:
Rau praises Belgium’s open-mindedness, and says one controversial scene in Lam Gods – in which one of two couples appearing as Adam and Eve simulate sex in front of a semi-circle of choir children, who double as the Altarpiece’s angels – wouldn’t have been possible in many countries.

Aalst mayor to defend city carnival against UNESCO’s anti-Semitism accusations

Tuesday, 17 September 2019

Authorities from the Flemish city of Aalst will defend the controversial use of stereotyped Jewish figures in a city parade before the UNESCO headquarters in Paris on Tuesday.

In March, the United Nations’ (U.N.) cultural heritage agency condemned the parade’s carnival floats depicting Orthodox Jews with crooked noses standing atop stacks and sacks of gold coins, with one of the figures carrying a white rat on its shoulder.

Carnival of Aalst to make fun of Jews and UNESCO after accusations of anti-Semitism


Monday, 21 October 2019

Participants in the Carnival of Aalst have released carnival ribbons making fun of UNESCO and Jews for the 2020 edition of the Carnival, after they were condemned for anti-Semitism in 2019.

The mayor of Aalst, Christoph D’Haese, and Alderman Jean-Jacques De Gucht were summoned to the UNESCO headquarters in Paris in September 2019, where they had to argue that their previous carnival procession was not anti-Semitic after a carnival group was accused of anti-Semitism for their ‘Sabbatjoor’ (“Sabbath year”) float by Jewish people in Belgium and abroad.

Simon Wiesenthal Centre urges newly appointed Belgian PM to act against antisemitic carnival float

November 3, 2019

“As the first woman and Jewish Prime Minister of Belgium, we know of your commitment to fight antisemitism and Holocaust. We urge you to direct your Foreign Ministry to encourage the Intangible Cultural Heritage member-States to delist Aalst at the Bogota assembly and to take appropriate punitive measures against apparent recidivist incitement at home,” wrote Shimon Samuels in a letter to Sophie Wilmes.

Planned asylum centre torched in Belgium

November 13, 2019

Belgian authorities opened an investigation on Tuesday after arsonists attacked a planned asylum seekers centre in the small town of Belzen raising fears of anti-migrant violence in Belgium.

The fire late Sunday, which did not cause any casualties, took place at a former retirement home whose scheduled change into an asylum centre sparked angry protests including by supporters of the far-right Vlaams Belang, one of the biggest parties in Dutch-speaking Flanders.

“This is the first time that a voluntary fire has been set at a reception centre" in Belgium, Benoit Mansy, spokesman for Fedasil, the federal agency for the reception of asylum seekers, told AFP.

Investigators said the cause of the fire was intentional, with Belgium's Migration Minister Maggie De Block decrying “a criminal act inspired by hatred and intolerance".

In addition to a criminal investigation, prosecutors are also probing whether laws curbing hate speech on the internet had been violated.

According to the newspaper De Morgen, several comments such as “Well done, keep it up", “finally someone who takes charge", have appeared on social media since Sunday.

The centre, managed by the Red Cross, was initially scheduled to receive 140 asylum seekers from December 15.

Despite information meetings with locals, the centre was contested in the area and triggered several protests. A photo on Twitter showed about 15 demonstrators behind a Vlaams Belang banner proclaiming “No asylum centre in Bilzen".

UNESCO pulls Belgian carnival from heritage list over anti-Semitism charges

13/12/2019

UNESCO on Friday withdrew an annual carnival in the Belgian city of Aalst from its heritage list over persistent charges of anti-Semitism.

In an unprecedented move, UNESCO's Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage said it was withdrawing the carnival "over recurring repetition of racist and anti-Semitic representations" at the event.

The carnival of Aalst, in the Belgian Dutch speaking region of Flanders, was initially added to UNESCO's list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity in 2010.

Belgian daily accuses Jewish lawmaker of spying for Israel

Bart Eeckhout leveled the allegation against Michael Freilich in an op-ed titled “Anti-Semitism” that was published Saturday in the left-leaning De Morgen newspaper

DECEMBER 24, 2019

ANTWERP, Belgium — The editor in chief of a Belgian daily newspaper accused a Jewish lawmaker of spying for Israel in parliament.

Bart Eeckhout leveled the allegation against Michael Freilich in an op-ed titled “Anti-Semitism” that was published Saturday in the left-leaning De Morgen newspaper.

Eeckhout wrote that De Morgen has learned that Freilich’s parliamentary aide filmed several minutes of an exchange last month between Belgian lawmakers and representatives of pro-Palestinian nongovernmental organizations. Eeckhout claimed the footage was filmed in secret, but Freilich told the local media that the short videos were for sharing on social media.

Dérapages racistes au SLFP Pompiers: le député Hicham Talhi (Ecolo) dénonce et exige des sanctions

03 juin 2020

Le parlementaire a adressé un courrier au président général du Syndicat Libre de la Fonction Publique (SLFP) après que le président du SLFP Pompiers, Eric Labourdette, ait qualifié sur Facebook certains parlementaires de “Bonobos”.

“Il s’agit de propos racistes totalement décomplexés très graves puisque animaliser des individus participe à un processus de déshumanisation qui peut avoir des conséquences très lourdes. Pourriez-vous avoir l’amabilité de me tenir au courant des suites que vous réserverez à la présente et de la teneur de la sanction qui sera prise ?”, écrit notamment le député régional Hicham Talhi à François Fernandez-Corrales.
