Nothing To See Here Folks: Muslims Riot In Brussels

Source: Free Republic
Third Night of 'Ramadan Rioting' in Capital of Europe

It looks as if immigrants youths want to turn nightly rioting during the Islamic holy month of ramadan into an annual tradition. Around 8:30pm last night violence erupted again in Brussels, the capital of Europe. The riots centered on the Brussels Marollen quarter and the area near the Midi Train Station, where the international trains from London and Paris arrive. Youths threw stones at passing people and cars, windows of parked cars were smashed, bus shelters were demolished, cars were set ablaze, a youth club was arsoned and a shop was looted. Two molotov cocktails were thrown into St.Peter’s hospital, one of the main hospitals of central Brussels. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fires at the hospital, but youths managed to steal the keys of the fire engine.

During the month of ramadan Muslims are required to fast during the day and are only allowed to eat after sunset. As Esther pointed out “What should be noticed about the riots is that they start after sunset. Besides the fact that they start after dark, it also gives the rioters enough time to break their fast and enjoy the traditional family meal. Sunset is around 7:30pm.” Tuesday’s and Monday’s riots began around 8:30pm.

Last night the police arrested 45 rioters. One of them will be prosecuted for assaulting the owner of a shop. Philippe Close, the chef de cabinet of the Mayor of Brussels, Freddy Thielemans, said that the authorities would continue their efforts to defuse the situation in a peaceful manner, but he announced that the police will be less complacent in future, “since we cannot tolerate that this [Marollen] neighbourhood falls victim to a problem from outside the neighbourhood.”

The immigrant youths claim that they are upset by the death of Fayçal Chaaban, a 25-year old criminal, in a Brussels prison last Sunday. Yesterday morning the authorities announced they would hold a meeting with the youths to hear their grievances about security in prison, but the meeting, which was due last night, could not take place because of the riots.

The authorities are especially nervous since the Belgian municipal elections are being held on Sunday October 8th. It is likely that the elections will be won by anti-immigrant, “islamophobic” parties. Since ramadan will not be over on October 8th and many immigrants might perceive a victory of the indigenous right (as opposed to their own far-right) as an insult, Muslim indignation over the election results in major cities may spark serious disturbances. According to a poll published today the Vlaams Belang party is set to win 38.6% of the vote in Antwerp (compared to 33,0% in the previous municipal elections six years ago).
I'm printing the whole thing because the MSM doesn't seem to think this is newsworthy. Newsbusters reports that "What makes this story unusual is that so far, there has only been one report issued across the newswires (by Reuters) covering the events, and even though the rioting is entering its third day, not a single photographer has been dispatched to document the activities of the Muslim mob." And "Yet amongst all of this meleé, the Associated Press hasn't seen fit to send a photojournalist? Nor Reuters?"

From Snappedshot blog, Reuters has also continued it's proud tradition of obfuscating who exactly it is committing these crimes..."From the wires, we're being told that these "youths of North African origin" are rioting over the death of "an inmate" in "a jail." Reuters ought to win an award for that extremely specific reporting. A muddier picture could not possibly have been penned, by anyone."

What is most frightening to me about this story is how it advances the Muslim agenda in the west. Any and all bad behavior by Muslims must at all costs be covered up, thus greasing the skids for Muslims to feel emboldened to do more bad stuff.

A couple of months ago I was at a family function, we had recently seen "Islam: what the west needs to know" at a local arthouse theater. During the meal I mentioned the film and suggested that people really need to see it which led to a general conversation about Islam. It was truly frightening to me how little my family knew about Islam in this post 9-11 world. Frankly, I would say they didn't want to know, but again, post 9-11 can we afford that luxury anymore?

So "African youths" go on a rampage in Brussels again, while major news networks do their damnedest to advance the caliphate. It is truly a world gone mad.
