Protesting at ‘the Islamisation of Europe’
One might expect Hizb ut-Tahrir – the Sunni ‘Liberation Party’ with an estimated million members - to be free to march in Indonesia for Islamic objectives, but equally so should Christians and other Europeans of all faiths and none be free to march in Belgium for their liberties ands their cultural values. Yet the Mayor of Brussels, Freddy Thielemans, has prohibited the march. Apparently, he ‘cannot guarantee the safety of the public’. Against whom, one asks?
The decision to ban a march by a peaceful and democratic group, consisting of people with no history of violent behaviour, is a totalitarian impulse. It has far more to do with not wanting to offend the sensibilities of Brussels’ large Mohammedan community than it has to do with tedious ‘health and safety’ concerns.
The irony is that Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in some Asian and Arab countries, but is quite legal in the EU and the UK. Mohammedans who advocate its ideology can march and protest all over a free and democratic Europe to their hearts’ content - against Western values, Western democracy, Western traditions, Western culture, Western religion. But God forbid that a group of indigenous/white/Christian inhabitants should seek to protest against the subjection of their heritage and culture to an ascendant Islamism. If Brussels, the political heart and governmental nerve-centre of the European Union, is prepared to deny its citizens free speech and the freedom to demonstrate, then Christendom has indeed subjected itself to Eurabia, and Shari’a supplants Europe’s Christian heritage. Here is evidence, if any were needed, that Europol is unconcerned with protecting the innocent, Eurojust unconcerned with ‘social justice’, and the Europe is heading towards collecting the jizyah + VAT.
Mayor Thielemans leads Brussels’ ruling Parti Socialiste on the city council. At the start of 2006, 14 of its 26 representatives were Mohammedan immigrants (ten of Moroccan origin, two Turkish, one Tunisian and one from Guinea). And guess which religion dominates in the city’s council across all parties…

He looks forward to hearing your thoughts.
