Belgian Cafe Throws Out American Tourist with Skullcap ("we are not serving Jews..")
Israel National News ^ | 02-11-08 | Staff

Posted on 02/11/2008 12:54:52 PM PST by atomic conspiracy

(IsraelNN.com) A Belgian restaurant waiter threw out a 64-year-old American professor because he was wearing a skullcap [kipa], according to the European Jewish Press. "We are not serving Jews; [get] out of here," the waiter shouted at Marcel Kalmann after he entered the Le Paniel d'Or cafe in the city of Bruges

The tourist went to another cafe, where the owners helped him call the police. A Belgian Jewish newspaper reported that Kalmann said he will lodge a complaint against the restaurant owner and against the police for telling him the incident was not anti-Semitic and that he could not file a complaint in English.

Kalmann was born in the Auschwitz death camp three days before it was liberated by Allied troops.

Not anti-Semitic? What does it take? Swastikas and a fired-up crematorium? Otoh, the professor may be lucky he wasn't arrested for wearing the kipa in a public place, thereby offending Muslim sensibilities.

Holy moley! What would the police say such a thing!?

I really do not know anything about Belgium. Are they generally anti-semitic? Was this some muzzie waiter?

I am not exactly Mr. Observant, but I am a large guy.

I tend to wear a kipah in Europe just to stare people down.

The officer was happy with his head's current location on his shoulders and he didn't want it removed.

The owner was probably a member of a protected class.

Granted I haven't lived in Belgium in twenty years but... It has a large and growing muzzie population. There are parts of Antwerp and Brussels that are no-go for non-muzzies. I would have thought that Bruges, a very popular tourist destination, would have been exempt from this kind of thing so I'm a little surprised. And in the past there seemed to be more animosity between Walloons (French-speaking Belgies) and the Flemish, the Dutch-oriented segment of the population, rather than against Jews.

Belgium ? that reminds me......

"The details of my life are quite inconsequential.... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament... My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon... luge lessons... In the spring, we'd make meat helmets... When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds — pretty standard, really. At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. At the age of 14, a Zoroastrian named Wilma ritualistically shaved my testicles — there really is nothing like a shorn scrotum — it's breathtaking... I suggest you try it."

That's okay, I'm sure that the customer wasn't eating Jews.

To be frank, there is still a lot of anti-semitism in Europe, and it was there long before the growth in the Muslim population.

So the police in Belgium are obeying the orders of the politicians to eliminate Christians and Jews and give the country to radical jihadis?

Belgium (as did Holland) had a Nazi/Fascist party in WW2.
Leon DeGrelle was the leader, avoided a Belgium treason conviction by escaping to Spain and died there in the 1970s (or so I remember!)

Maybe the biggest blunder of the 20th century was Britain’s decision to go to war with Germany over Belgium. If not for that, the Germans would have beaten France quickly. No Bolshevik Revolution, no Nazis, no Hitler, no World War II, no Stalin, no Mao, no Ho Chi Minh, no Fidel.

Well, I have no idea what the police said to the guy about the cafe incident but am I the only one here who thinks it is ridiculous to file a complaint against the Belgian police for not accepting a complaint report in English? It's not like cops here take statements from foreigners in Flemish.

Don’t know about Flemish, but our police are able to take reports in Spanish, Hmong, Vietnamese, Urdu, Hindi, and a host of others. There is a notice to that effect right on the door of the squad room.

The point is that it's difficult for so many reasons to imagine a 9 month pregnant woman at Auschwitz but it's easy to imagine people fudging their autobiographies.

Wouldn’t even be surprised if his Dad was a nazi myself. Particularly if she’d been there for 9 months.

Who knows...but it’s not something we’ll ever know.

I’ve got a 101 year old woman who lost both parents and 8 of her 9 brothers and sisters in several camps.

Relatives tell of all kinds of undbeleiveable stuff, and I can certainly picture a malnourished woman not showing, let alone NOT exactly blabbering about it!

If he was born 3 days before the liberation of Auschwitz, he would be 62 years of age going on 63 in April, not 64.

But Europeans are racists beyond anything you've seen in the US. When I was in the Army in Germany (70's) civilians there would ask me if black people had tails that they tucked in, or whether they had 6 toes. Totally wierd and ignorant.
