>>Brussels, the most Islamic city in Europe

Really? I thought that was Malmo, Sweden, which is just about 50% Muslim now.

I have a Dutch friend who was telling me that many Belgians want to split off and join Holland - those in the richer provinces - I guess that would be the northern areas. They are fed up subsidizing rest of Belgium. And that the Dutch would welcome them. I got the impression it is quite a serious movement.

This is a guaranteed break-up.

But I will state this. Germans have woke up in the last five years to realize their government runs the same tax and distribute game as Belgium. Hessen and Bavaria are among the richest states in Germany...which watch a good bit of their income float over to five or six really marginal states. They’ve hinted that this distribution game needs to come to an end, and the money stay in the state that it’s earned.

I suspect that if you go through Italy, Austria and Spain...you might find the same separatist movements alive and flourishing. The EU might wake up in ten years to find six smaller countries flopping out of the old counties.

Belgium is like short people in the Randy Newman song - it has got no reason to live.

Partition it between Holland and France and get it over with. It is clearly not working as a country.
