The Jewish community of Antwerp (Belgium) has released CCTV footage of an attempted car ramming incident on an Orthodox Jewish family Saturday morning.
A Jewish father and his son were on their way to the local synagogue when they suddenly had to jump out of harm's way because a car was coming directly at them. (Note: the two were walking on the sidewalk.) Here's the footage:
Police have arrested the driver. According to Israeli public broadcaster Kan News, the driver is of Muslim origin. He was tracked down through the footage of the license plate and is to be arraigned today on the charge of attempted manslaughter.
Sadly, this is one of many recent examples of increased antisemitism in Western Europe over the last few years -- and especially the last few months. In September of last year, for instance, a Jewish man was assaulted in Antwerp by a "local youth" who called him every anti-Jewish slur in the dictionary. The attacker had converted to Islam recently and was arrested with the help of onlookers.
In January of this year in Paris, two young Jewish citizens were attacked by Muslim haters as well. In the first attack, the victim was an 8-year-old Jewish boy. He was beaten up because of his ethnicity and religion. The second victim was a 15-year-old Jewish girl. She was stabbed in the face. The only reason for the attack was her being Jewish. Her attackers identified her as such because of the school uniform she wore.

EUROPEAN REACTION: Why were they walking in public dressed like that? Seems kind of stupid to me.
Islam is a war plan.
It’s sad how common Anti-Semitism is among the French-speaking population with or without Muslim influx. It’s why so many French Jews have headed to Israel. There are Arabs/Muslims in Israel too plus the threat of terror from neighboring countries — and yet its still safer for Jews there than Europe.
I guess I missed it in the past but there are other interesting, thought provoking articles on the web site.
Raggedy men are the enemies of civilization.
It is situations like this one which is why the United States has the 2nd Amendment so citizens can protect themselves from killers amongst them.
It was an accident.
Akbar was just texting while driving.
Belgium has turned into a s-hole. Trump could include it on his list, and it’s all due to Islam and migration from “turd world” countries.

It really has. It’s one of those places you travel through and want to get back in the car to get away as fast as possible. I’ve never been to Bruges. I would like to check that place out but the big cities you can forget about. I spent some time in small town Flanders and the folks there were very nice to me. It’s really too bad what has become of their country.
Yes, I think the Gatestone site had a story about Belgium recently and how terrible things are there now.
