    The six founding nations of the European Union on Tuesday stressed their commitment to seek an "ever closer union" ahead of next week's summit where Britain is expected to seek a new agreement to help convince a skeptical public to remain part of the EU. The foreign ministers of host Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg said in a joint statement Tuesday they reconfirm their "strong commitment to Europe and the European project and invite all other member states to join." ...

    DNA evidence lifted from the ancient bones and teeth of people who lived in Europe from the Late Pleistocene to the early Holocene -- spanning almost 30,000 years of European prehistory -- has offered some surprises, according to researchers who report their findings in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on Feb. 4, 2016. Perhaps most notably, the evidence shows a major shift in the population around 14,500 years ago, during a period of severe climatic instability... The researchers pieced this missing history together by reconstructing the mitochondrial genomes of 35 hunter-gatherer individuals who lived in Italy, Germany, Belgium, France,...

    A Belgian journalist has said she was groped while on live television at the Cologne Karneval. "At first they were just making faces behind me. Then a hand landed on my breast. I was shocked," said RTBF journalist Esmeralda Labye, describing the incident that took place in the Alter Markt district of town. The chances of the two men being caught are high - the whole incident was caught on camera. Police are now investigating the case. A section of the video seen by The Local shows a man of European appearance making lewd gestures behind the reporter. The full...

    Cycling officials on Saturday detained a bicycle ridden during the cyclocross world championships in Zolder, Belgium, to investigate "technological fraud," and on Sunday they confirmed the bike had a concealed motor in the frame. The International Cycling Union said the bike belonged to 19-year-old Belgian Femke Van den Driessche. It is the first official case of "mechanical doping" or "bike doping" at cycling's highest level. If used at the right time during a race even a small motor can provide a critical burst of power and speed.

    Belgium has called for vast refugee camps holding up to 300,000 refugees to be built in Greece in a desperate attempt to stem the flow of migrants from Syria and other nations outside Europe. At an emergency summit of European leaders yesterday, Belgian migration minister Theo Francken raised the spectre of setting up 'closed facilities' in Greece to be operated by the EU. He said that the Greeks 'now need to bear the consequences' of being too weak to guard their own borders and called for Athens to face an EU 'sanction mechanism' under which the rising number of refugees...

    The European Union has ordered Belgium to recover some $760 million in illegal tax breaks from 35 multinationals, its latest ruling against the sweet deals many member states offered to some of the world's biggest companies. EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said Monday the tax advantage given to a select group of mainly European companies "distorts competition" by putting smaller competitors "on an unequal footing." "National tax authorities cannot give any company, however large, however powerful an unfair competitive advantage compared to others," Vestager said. "This scheme puts smaller competitors at an unfair disadvantage." ...

    At a police training academy on the outskirts of Brussels, new recruits are wrestling one another to the ground - practising techniques of unarmed restraint. There are about 40 of them - fresh-faced young people in their 20s, men and women - but what's immediately noticeable is that with one exception, they're all white. Watching them is Paul Jacobs. For 20 years he dealt with discrimination complaints in the Belgian police - and he's just finished a session teaching this class "inter-cultural communication". They discussed why so many Belgian youngsters go to fight in Syria - a higher proportion, relative...

    Belgium has arrested six terror suspects. The terrorists, all Islamic, had planned to carry out attacks during the New Year's party in the country's capital, Brussels. The six were arrested during a massive operation in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, its suburb Laken, and in the towns of Sint-Pieters Leeuw and Anderlecht. Yesterday, Belgian authorities arrested another man -- Ayoub B. -- on the suspicion of membership in a terrorist organization and involvement in terror related murders. That arrest came a few days after Belgian police arrested two men -- Saïd S. and Mohamed K. -- because they too had...

The men are members of a Muslim biker gang called the Kamikaze Riders and are suspected to have discussed attacking Brussels' Grand Place square and other crowded sites as well as police and military facilities, a senior Belgian counter-terrorism official told CNN on condition of anonymity. The plot appears to have been "inspired but not directed," by the Islamic State, also called ISIS, the counter-terrorism official said. This is the exact terminology -...

    A mysterious group that calls itself "Christian State'' has threatened to kill Muslims and destroy their establishments in Belgium, apparently in retaliation to the Islamic State (ISIS) attacks in Paris that killed 130 people on Nov. 13. The warning was written in a letter delivered last week to the Attadamoune mosque in Molenbeek, Belgium, according to French and Belgian media reports. "No mosque and none of your businesses will be safe,'' and "brothers [Muslims] will be slaughtered like pigs and crucified as our Lord converts their souls,'' the group said in the letter that was found in the mosque's mailbox...

    June 22, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The Dutch Pediatric Association says that allowing teenagers to ask for euthanasia discriminates against younger children and is asking that the age limit for doctor-assisted death be removed.Current Dutch law permits children 12 and older to ask for euthanasia with parental approval while 18-year-olds fall under the regulations governing adults."We feel that an arbitrary age limit such as 12 should be changed and that each child's ability to ask to die should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If a child under 12 satisfies the same conditions, pediatricians are currently powerless. It's time to address...

The list, based on information from Belgium's security apparatus, included two brothers who would take part in the bloodshed in France on Nov. 13, as well as the man suspected of being the architect of the terrorist plot, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a Molenbeek resident who had left for Syria to fight for the Islamic State in...

    So Brussels is on lockdown due to the heightened terror threat. Trains have been canceled, people have been told to stay away from crowded areas, meaning that the center is deserted and sporting events have been postponed. It's no surprise really, because about half a mile northwest of Brussels' city center lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek. It is one of Brussels' nineteen districts. This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicenter of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek.

    Last Saturday in Paris, at the Boulevard Voltaire near the Bataclan club, I found myself staring at a pool of blood. I wondered what was happening with the world, and refocused my camera on the aftermath of the terror. When it became clear the attacks were planned in Molenbeek, I was not surprised. The real surprise? That Belgium expressed shock at the connection. I called Molenbeek my home for nine years. In 2005, it was the city’s last affordable neighborhood — in large part because of its bad reputation. My apartment, just across the canal from the city center, is...

Of course, the correct thing to do would be to cancel the conference, not because security cannot be provided, but because if you are waging a "pitiless" war, that is what one must focus on, not as Steyn so aptly puts it, "talking about sea levels in the Maldives in the 22nd century? By which time France and Germany and Belgium and Austria and the Netherlands will have been long washed away."

    The suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks has been named as Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud by French officials. It has been reported that Abaaoud, 27, had links to thwarted attacks on a Paris-bound high-speed train when two US soldiers overpowered a heavily-armed gunman and a separate attack on a church. He also had links to two suspects killed in a counter-terrorism raid in Verviers, Belgium, in January. He is thought to be from the suburb of Molenbeek in Brussels, which was home to other members of the militant Islamist cell that carried out the attacks. Abaaoud, who also uses the name...

    Belgian police arrested several suspects in Brussels on Saturday during raids connected to the Paris attacks, including one who was in the French capital at the time of the carnage, Prime Minister Charles Michel said. Michel told Belgian television that the arrests were linked to "suspect vehicles" identified during the investigation by French police into the attacks that murdered at least 129 people and were claimed by Islamic State (ISIS) The possible link to the new Paris attacks raises fresh fears that Belgium is becoming a hotbed of Islamist terrorism, coming just months after connections emerged to the Charlie Hebdo...

    "STUNNING ADMISSION: Hyper-Progressive Cardinal Danneels Admits Being in Mafia Dedicated to Unseat PBXVI" Pride goeth before the fall. The modernists are apparently feeling very powerful and secure, because they are starting to open their mouths and crow about both their opposition to Pope Benedict XVI, dropping hints they played a role in his abdication, as well as quite possibly illicitly organizing to elect Pope Francis. Further serious concerns are being raised about Cardinal Godfried Danneels, one of the papal delegates chosen to attend the upcoming Ordinary Synod on the Family, after the archbishop emeritus of Brussels confessed this week to...

    The Republican Party of the 1920's swept into power during a financial crisis. Errors in the Feds monetary policy in 1919 in kept rates too low to benefit the sale of Victory bonds. The Fed then tightened excessively due to inflation, creating a financial shock and depression from 1920 to 1921. At that time, the Republican Party viewed increasing tariffs as good policy. Thus, during the sixty seventh Congress, the Emergency Tariff Act of 1921 was passed as a temporary measure until a more comprehensive measure could be drafted. Ultimately, Fordney-McCumber passed in 1922, imposing an ad valorem rate of...

    Police in one Belgian city are now being armed with paintball guns. Rapid response units in Antwerp are being handed the non-lethal weapons, familiar to stag doers and wannabe warriors across the world. Police chiefs say that the new semi-automatic firearms are designed to be used in densely-populated areas. They can also fire pepper spray missiles. And police bosses hope that they will help neutralise dangerous suspects without actually killing them. So far, some four FN 303s have been ordered by the citys fast deployment teams. The special units, which use unmarked cars to patrol the streets, were created following...

    Quelle surprise? Mais, non. The recidivism rate among former detainees at Guantanamo Bay’s prison is rather high — at least 25-30%, and that’s the cases we’re able to track. The CNN report on the arrest of two former detainees in Belgium has two more interesting angles to it, however: Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria. They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the...

    Gitmo recidivism shouldnt surprise anyone. Absolutely nothing was done at Guantanamo to disabuse the inmates of their jihadist beliefs. On the contrary, the Quran was treated with the utmost respect by the Infidel guards, who didnt even defile it with their Infidel hands, but handled it only with gloves. That and more only reinforced the Islamic supremacist core beliefs of the prisoners, when they should have been confronted and challenged.
