But I keep coming back to what is rapidly becoming an existential theme.
I'm sorry if I'm boring you, but I can't shut up.
A.) WEEKLONG RIOTS IN AMSTERDAM.
On Sunday, October 14, Bilal Bajaka, a Dutch youth of Moroccan descent, or shall we rather say a Moroccan living off Dutch Social Security, stepped into a police station in Slotervaart, one of Amsterdam's western neighborhoods, and randomly started stabbing the police officers present. One policeman received five stabs (one of them deep in the throat hitting the wind pipe) as well as several cuts in face and shoulders. An artery in his head was hit. His colleague, a female sergeant, was little better off, being stabbed in the chest and the back. A pulmonary artery was cut and a lung perforated. Yet she somehow managed to pull her weapon and shoot the scumbag dead. The parents of Mr. Bajaka complained that their son had been released too early from the mental institution he was in. They were visited the day after by Slotervaart Mayor Ahmed Marcouch, who offered his condolences (there was no report from a visit to the severely wounded police officers, then still fighting for their lives). Bilal Bajaka was the brother of one Abdullah Bajaka, who two years ago was arrested for planning to blow up an El Al Boeing at Schiphol Airport. And in 2003, when in jail (Bajaka first started to appear in police records in 1998, when he was, uh, thirteen), he was visited there by Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo Van Gogh. Of course, all this must be coincidence.
Not one day later police first reported growing tensions among the local "youths" and then stones thrown through the windows. It appeares the largely moroccan neighborhood did not appreciate the shooting of a criminal from among their own, and especially not by an infidel chick. Monday, October 17, all hell broke loose. Over the course of one week, tens of cars were torched, media crews who were filming the events attacked, and the indigenous population, I assume a minority in Slotervaart, terrorized. In a perverse act of symbolism, a funeral service for Bajaka was held in a mosque in the immediate vicinity of the police station which was attacked (Dutch blog Klein Verzet reports it was the same mosque he visited before he went into the police station). Throughout the week the Dutch police presented a baffling show of inactivity, not intervening and hardly making any arrests even when cars were put on fire literally under their noses. It's not that the officers themselves did not want to act, they were ordered not to do anything, and the Amsterdam Police Chief, Bernard Welten, even officially announced this so-called De-escalation Policy on Dutch TV. Welten literally said that he wanted to avoid a Parisian scenario and that it was therefore necessary to "keep the peace at all cost." In this he was supported firmly by Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen, who, when a Dutch Police Union asked for at least a ban on demonstrations, replied that that was unnecessary. Job Cohen is a prominent member of the PvdA, one of the Dutch Socialist parties.
By Tuesday, fire crews had to be escorted by police. All through the week and the week thereafter, cars were set alight by rampaging moroccan youths, with the unrest spreading to the adjacent neigborhoods of Osdorp and Geuzenveld-Slotermeer. Finally, by Friday, October 27, things seemed to come to a rest at last, with "only" two cars burned the previous night. Now, while the vandalims of Amsterdam's muslim scum got a fair deal of attention, mostly thanks to blogs, similar events in another major Dutch city, Den Haag (The Hague) went almost unnoticed. A most disturbing story came from Dutch daily De Telegraaf, which wrote that indigenous inhabitants of the Transvaal and Schilderswijk neighborhoods dare not report their torched cars and damage done to their property to the police for fear of reprisals from the moroccan perpetrators. Yes, it has come so far.
B.) WEEKLONG RIOTS IN BRUSSELS.
Sorry, too sick of it all to write any further. Big photo from Elaib Harvey, TBJ editor. Little one from a Belgian newspaper. In Brussels, the perpetrators are Turkish youths. On Sunday night they busted an Armenian cafe because they were fed up with reports from PKK rebels killing Turkish troops. Apparently the Turks thought that their cause - their indignation over Kurshish muslim rebels killing regular Turkish Army conscripts - was furthered by smashing to smithereens a cafe owned by a Christian. Anyway, police was in the neighborhood but did nothing. They were more active in September, when they beat up Vlaams Belang members peacefully protesting the islamization of Europe. The incident at the cafe marked the start of a weeklong period of car burning, rock throwing, and shop busting. Filthy dogs, all of them. Biting the hand that feeds them.
More details tomorrow. Check for updates.
This can't go on. The cancer of islam must be eradicated.
UPDATE: CHARLES JOHNSON IS MAKING A BIG MISTAKE.
Over the past few days, there have been a disturbing series of allegations that the Vlaams Belang is a neonazi party. Videos have been sent - reportedly by an extreme leftwing Belgian blogger (Yelloman) to LGF's Charles Johnson and he seems to have been lured into believing the crap.
Please, for God's sake. Someone email Johnson. I have NEVER denied that the origins of the Vlaams Belang/Vlaams Blok were murky. There's even several posts in this blog which explain that in detail. But you got it all to see from a Flemish perspective. Throughout Belgian history, EVEN TILL TODAY, Flemings have been treated like second rate citizens. EVEN TODAY, Flemings must put up thousands of more votes to get an MP elected to the federal parliament compared to the number of votes it takes for the French-speaking Walloons to elect an MP of their own. EVEN TODAY, the number of Flemish ministers in the federal government is equal to the number of Walloon ministers, even though the ratio of Flemings to Walloons is 6 to 4. You MUST understand that in the past, unfortunately, SOME Flemings sided with the Germans who falsely promised them greater self-rule. I have NEVER denied that when the Vlaams Blok was raised in 1977 to fight for legitimate Flemish rights, a number of people who had collaborated with the Nazis were there too. And I would never have joined the VB in that time. But anno 2007 the VB, in the meantime the Vlaams Belang, has become a modern party with an agenda that is as close to the GOP's agenda as any European party can get. THAT IS MY HONEST OPINION.
We over here in Europe NEED parties like Vlaams Belang. We are facing a mortal threat in the form of islamization and inside Belgium, the VB is the only political power seriously addressing the issue. Who cares when Filip Dewinter was a hothead in his student years? Btw, I have NEVER seen him sporting a swastika. Jesus Christ, compared to Ann Coulter Filip Dewinter is a schoolboy. It was The Netherland's Geert Wilders who called for banning the Koran, not Dewinter: HE defended publication of that terrible book. Who cares about a few godforsaken lapsuses? WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT A CELTIC CROSS ON HIS BOOKSHELF??? I like the Celtic Cross myself, and I am by no means someone who looks down upon people of other colour! We come from the Celts!
Please, tell Charles Johnson he is making a GRAVE MISTAKE by smearing the VB. In a time like this, WE NEED TO BE ALLIES, NOT ENEMIES. He's being bombarded now with futile reports and dubious photos from leftists.... and he's stepping into the trap. Let me show you another Filip Dewinter:
VB strongman Filip Dewinter shaking hands with rabbi Pinchas Meyers. TELL CHARLES JOHNSON THE VB IS PROTECTING BELGIUM'S JEWS!!!!
In March 2004, Filip Dewinter held in a meeting organized by the Antwerp VB chapter a passionate plea for the State of Israel, saying that "Israel is the vanguard of the West in a feudal Middle East". Among those present was Avi Lipkin, a jewish author and former spokesman for the Israeli Army. Dewinter's speech was so eloquent and convincing, highlighting Israels brave struggle and its prodigious accomplishments, that after the speech Mr. Lipkin HEARTILY EMBRACED FILIP DEWINTER!!!
CHARLES JOHNSON, DOES THIS GUY SOUND LIKE YOUR TYPICAL NEO-NAZI TO YOU??????
Please, let someone tell Mr. Johnson that he is wrong with his misgivings. I emailed him, but I fear he didn't notice. I'm not "pulling", I do not do this for attention. I am just a very concerned citizen - I am not telling you one hundredth of what happens here - and I fear for the future of my children in an islamized Europe.
I DO NOT WANT MY CHILDREN TO LIVE IN AN ISLAMIZED EUROPE. IN BELGIUM, THE VLAAMS BELANG IS OF PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE TO SAFEGUARD OUR LIBERTIES AND STAND UP FOR OUR VALUES. IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL THAT LGF AND JOHNSON, OF ALL PEOPLE, SHOULD COME TO DENOUNCE US. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. WE CANNOT AFFORD DIVISION.
