I think that after watching this video, you will agree with me that VLAAMS BELANG chooses squarely for the latter option:
Here's the transcript:
"00:00 A fist against Islamic terror.
00:03 A fist of anger, because we will not stand for this terror, and we will hit back.
00:11 I have had enough of this; that just a few weeks after the terror attack
00:18 the political elite in this country are more worried about Muslims’ feelings
00:23 than for the victims and their relatives.
00:26 They haven’t even cleaned up before they are looking for reasons
00:30 for why we are at fault. Never is the guilt assigned to
00:34 The religion of conquest. No, again it takes upon itself the role of victim, supported by “gutmenschen”,
00:39 who in this manner first and foremost try to wins souls and votes.
00:44 Already Europe has endured a long list of bloody Islamic terror attacks;
00:49 Madrid 2004. Four bombs on a train, 192 dead, almost 2000 injured.
00:59 London 2005. Four bombs on busses and the metro. 52 dead and over 700 injured.
01:08 Paris 2015. Six bombs, 130 dead and over 350 injured.
01:18 Brussels. 32 dead and over 340 injured.
01:23 And the list of murders is also long, such as the murder of Theo van Gogh in Amsterdam.
01:29 The murder of a rabbi and three school children in a Jewish school in Toulouse.
01:35 The murder of the 25-year old soldier Lee Rigby in London.
01:40 The murder of four visitors to the Jewish museum in Brussels.
01:45 The murder of 12 people at Charlie Hebdo publishers in Paris.
01:51 The list is slowly but surely becoming endless.
01:55 Our society is today paying an almost unbearable price
02:00 for the historic mistake of letting tens of thousands guest workers grow into the hundreds of thousands.
02:07 and in Europe several million new migrants,
02:12 either outright illegal, or would-be asylum seekers.
02:17 The 22nd of March, dear friends, the 22nd of March,
02:23 Hundreds of people hurt, 32 people murdered.
02:30 And it wasn’t global warming or a lack of possibilities on the job market that killed them.
02:35 Neither was it the so called “racism” in our society, nor was it pollution,
02:39 …but Muslim terror that killed them.
02:43 A strong justice system would have been able to prevent this.
02:47 A strong immigration policy would have been able to prevent this.
02:51 A well-equipped intelligence agency could have prevented this.
02:55 But first and foremost our politicians had the damned responsibility to prevent this.
03:00 Dear friends, there will be no “European Islam”. The only thing we will get is an Islamized Europe.
03:08 Europe does not change the Muslims. The Muslims are changing Europe, and fast.
03:14 In other words, dear friends, Islam…
03:20 In other words, dear friends, Islam is not a part of the solution, Islam is the essence of the problem.
03:33 That beaten and raped women in Islamic culture are always seen
03:37 as the guilty party instead of the victims
03:41 is the sickening result of the perverse sexual morality of the Muslim man.
03:46 History teaches us that the degree of a Islamization in a society
03:53 is directly reflected in the degree of how much Muslim women have to cover their bodies.
03:59 The more Islam, the more textiles worn by women, and the less freedom they have.
04:06 The advance of Islam means in practice social, economic and cultural regression.
04:14 Poverty, lack of learning, social exclusion, discrimination and lack of opportunity
04:20 are not the reason for Islam. They are the result of Islam.
04:32 And when history repeats itself, when the asses who are leading us,
04:38 deaf and blind to public opinion, as if they are covering their eyes and ears,
04:47 repeat the same actions with an insane “Wir schaffen das” policy,
04:53 when they want to admit Islamic Turkey to the EU, then we call for resistance.
04:58 We will tell you what is going on, regardless of what people think about us
05:02 and regardless of political correctness.
05:06 And the more we are ignored, the more we are undermined and demonized,
05:10 the more driven we become, and we are proud of it, by the way.
05:16 Together with the Austrian FPÖ, together with the Italian Lega Nord,
05:21 Marine Le Pen’s Front National and Geert Wilders’ PVV,
05:25 we will mobilize public opinion. And to the people of foreign background already here in Flanders,
05:30 and who want to be Flemish together with the Flemish, we still reach out our hand,
05:36 but for the others, the people who hate us, we have entirely different plans.
05:42 If there is something called integration, then there must also be something called “outegration”.
05:48 The slogan Kemal Ataturk in his time left as a testament to his people was:
05:54 “Turkey for the Turks”. Of course, but then also “Flanders for the Flemish” and “Europe for the Europeans”.
06:06 I am tired of this. I am more than tired, dead tired, and I think you are, too.
06:12 We must fight back and resist. It is the only thing we CAN do.
06:15 As peaceful but battle-ready citizens we have a duty to make our European civilization —
06:21 which we inherited from our parents and forefathers — safe for our children and grandchildren.
06:28 It is our duty to protect our identity, our sovereignty and our freedom.
06:32 It is our damned duty to make it clear to those who threaten our achievements
06:38 that we will not tolerate it. I can promise you, ladies and gentlemen,
06:42 that we, Vlaams Belang, will work on this.
06:47 More than ever before. With even more passion and even more fervor,
06:53 we will keep fighting for our identity, our traditions and our way of life.
06:57 I am also counting on you. It will not be a bed of roses, but one thing I know with certainty:
07:04 As long as there is a Vlaams Belang on the field, the battle is not lost.
07:10 Today we stand here with the choice of either painfully going down, or fighting back.
07:15 Vlaams Belang clearly chooses the latter option.
07:19 We will no longer submit to Islamic terror, but will now hit back with force! …Thank you!"
I am so GODDAM PROUD to be a part of this movement, to be a member of this party. Vlaams Belang embodies the quintessential strength, innovation, passion and pride of my people, the Flemish. After seeing this video, you have gotten a glimpse of the fierce, indomitbale spirit which made Flanders "the cockpit of Europe" in medieval and far into modern times. That spirit is still there, and Vlaams Belang is its herald.
