Third Night of 'Ramadan Rioting' in Capital of Europe
The Brussels Journal ^ | 09/27/2006 | Paul Belien

Posted on 09/27/2006 6:50:46 AM PDT by Republicain

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).

Arrest, imprison, export, and hand the bill for the proceedings and repairs to the family. If they cannot pay it, arrest, imprison then export.

Problem is quite solvable.

Islam is the only religion where riots reliably follow religious services.

The autopsy of Chaaban is imminent

The spokesman of the parquet floor indicated that there no was intervention of a third person to facilitate the death.
The parquet floor of Brussels evoked Tuesday morning the legal past of the young person deceased in prison. It had been placed in custody with Forest on September 16 within the framework of a qualified flight educated by the examining magistrate Bertha Bernardo-Mendez.
The young man has been the subject of measurements taken by a judge of the Protection of youth for his 13 years. In 2001, it profited from a suspension from pronounced for facts of flights. In 2003, it was condemned to a sorrow of work of 150 hours general interest for facts of flights. In 2004, the justie inflicted to him a new judgment for facts of flights, a sorrow of 175 hours work. In 2005, it was condemned to a sorrow of 20 months imprisonment with 5 years a probatory deferment, for flights and forgery in writing.

The young man was also challenged at the wheel of a vehicle whereas its driving licence had been withdrawn to him and that the vehicle was not assured.

The problem is most of these punks are born in Europe and are EU citizens. Where do you deport them to? France? They cannot be sent to their parents home countries.

C'mon, look at the bright side. Rioting keeps them busy and certainly doesn't result in any new little mouoselimes; it probably also reduces potential converts.

In My Home Town, five years ago, we had what the ethnic radio station in town calls "the uprisings" and sensible people call "the riots" over a punk kid with fifteen warrents on him, who ran into a dark ally chased by cops, and made a sudden grab for his pockets in the dimness. The cops, rightly, viewed this as the punk going for a gun, and shot him.

The predictable happened...endless whining about "the cops are shooting our babies!" The formation of several public committees to "oversee" (handcuff) the cops. And nights and nights of torching their own neighborhoods, followed by years of complaining that "all those businesses we burned down never came back to our area and we have no jobs!"

But, those riots and these riots, I can sum them all up in two words: "free sneakers".

Hey, Mooselimbs! You don't fool us. You want free sneakers.

These riots are nothing more than Muslims trying to show the Euros who's boss. and its working

The Barbarians destroyed Roman civilization. And now the Muslims are destroying Western civlilization.

Now those are some real class moves... Bomb the hospitals... Disable the emergency rescue equipment... Where's the hysterical global media response to this? Shouldn't we schedule a 'day of rage' or something?

Are they? In the old days('80s) you could be the third generation of a immigrant family born in Germany and not be a German Citizen.

Has the EU changed that?

You think this might have a slight connection to the fact that the immigrants have a tendency to be violent? Nah.

During Lent my family fasts and goes to church to participate in the Stations of the Cross. Never thought of rioting.

"It is likely that the elections will be won by anti-immigrant, “islamophobic” parties."

And there you have it. It is why Europe will fall to the muslims. As evil as these SOB muslims can be, and the article is still peppered with references to "immigrants", and attempts at "peaceful resolution".
The correct response is that these people are not acting as citizens. They are acting as an invading, hostile force. Not recognizing that, and not dealing with it appropriately will be Europe's demise.
How long before they hold an election and anyone not carrying a koran will be afraid to go out to vote?

I'd say wake up Europe, but they won't, and it's getting very late in the game.

I don't know what the big deal is. This kind of thing always happens around here during Lent. There is so much smoke from the fires that, by the time the 40 days have passed, you don't even notice it anymore. On Sundays and at the end of any services held during the week, our good priest reminds us to keep the fast, and then sends us on our way with a hearty, "Burn, baby, burn!"
