I reported earlier about the commotion around the headscarf ban imposed by an Antwerp High School, the Koninklijk Atheneum.

Since Tuesday, September 1, there have been angry protests from 150-200 muslim girls and their parents at the school gates. The girls that were willing to lay off their scarves upon entering were scolded and intimidated. Which is unbelievably ironic, since the protestors were toting a.o. placards reading "Vrije Keuze" (Free Choice). Keep in mind that it was EXACTLY the fact that non-veilwearing girls were pressed to cover up that led Karin Heremans, the Director of the Koninklijk Atheneum, to impose the ban, in a perhaps futile attempt to stop the islamic radicalization of her school.

And now this:

The entire week the muslim parents and their daughters have shouted slogans like "ALL FLEMINGS GET OUT!". I kid you not.

Of course, it don't make much difference - the percentage of muslim students at the Koninklijk Atheneum has risen from 48% in 2001 to 80% this year. Courtesy the socialist party.

More from the article. Keep in mind it's from De Standaard, a regime newspaper par excellence. If they print it...

"Heremans was given police protection last week. Just like in the days after the announcement of the headscarf ban at the end of June, there was also a police officer present on the school's grounds. Heremans' private house is also under police surveillance. Heremans, who has become the face of the headscarf ban, is especially disturbed by verbal threats on the street. Especially by older muslim men, she says."

If you need to order police officers to watch over schoolchildren, and a bodyguard for the school principal, you are in
