In the past 20 years, Jihadists have centered their operations in Belgium and the district of Molenbeek in Brussels is now a foreign Islamic territory in the heart of Belgium and is able to reach other parts of Europe, the GateStone Institute reported.
That Islamic zone is under sharia law and not under Belgian law and nearly all of the women wears veils or burqas and those who do not, take serious risks.
The GateStone Institute stated that in those areas, drug trafficking and radical mosques are everyplace. The police stay outside and intervene only in cases of extreme emergency, using military-like commando operations. Other areas of Belgium, such as Shaerbeek and Anderlecht have the same status as Molenbeek.
The Belgian authorities have allowed the situation to deteriorate. The situation in the country now is virtually equivalent to a surrender.
Dr. Guy Millière of the GateStone Institute said, “They seemed to hope that willful blindness and accepting the unacceptable would permit the country to be spared. It did not.”
“The attack on Belgium’s Jewish Museum on May 24, 2014 should have served as a warning. It did not. That “only” Jews were the target led the Belgian government to underestimate the threat. The jihadi who wanted to kill passengers on train from Amsterdam to Paris, on August 21, 2015, prepared his attack in Brussels. That three American heroes neutralized him before he could start shooting again led the Belgian government to think the danger was not large.”
“Despite the worst attacks on Belgium soil since World War II, Belgian authorities do not seem ready to change their behavior, “said Millière.
Millière also reported that after the attacks, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel denounced “violent and cowardly acts” and stressed his “determination,” without saying what he intended to do. He did not speak of the necessity of changing the Belgian laws to make them more effective. He did not mention any enemy. He never used words such as “jihad” or “radical Islam.”
“He behaved and talked as most of his European counterparts did. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls used more courageous words and said many times he is fighting “radical jihad” and “Islamism.” The French parliament passed laws allowing what is still impossible in Belgium: police searches at night, “Millière reported. “But France stands alone, and effectively the situation in France is no better than in Belgium. Islamist enclaves exists in many suburbs. Whole cities are controlled by thugs and radical imams: cities such as Roubaix, Trappes, Aubervilliers and Sevran in the northeast of Paris.”
Millière also pointed out that the Islamist enclaves also exist in other European countries such as Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Sweden.
Will Europe ever learn that appeasing radical Muslims will not work and will continue to put their nations in danger?
Muslims have committed Jihadi terrorist acts for years in Europe. When I was stationed in Germany in the mid-1980s, we lived under the threats of Palestinian/Hamas terror attacks, which included other parts of Europe and today, Europe is allowing suicide by Jihad and if it does not change its ways, the attacks will be worse and Europe will be no more.
Some of those attacks were:
- Restaurant Bombing in Spain, April 12, 1984: Eighteen U.S. servicemen were killed and 83 people were injured in a bomb attack on a restaurant near a U.S. Air Force Base in Torrejon, Spain.
- TWA Hijacking, June 14, 1985: A Trans-World Airlines flight was hijacked en route to Rome from Athens by two Lebanese Hizballah terrorists and forced to fly to Beirut. The eight crew members and 145 passengers were held for seventeen days, during which one American hostage, a U.S. Navy sailor, was murdered. After being flown twice to Algiers, the aircraft was returned to Beirut after Israel released 435 Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners.
- Achille Lauro Hijacking, October 7, 1985: Four Palestinian Liberation Front terrorists seized the Italian cruise liner in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, taking more than 700 hostages. One U.S. passenger was murdered before the Egyptian government offered the terrorists safe haven in return for the hostages’ freedom.
- Airport Attacks in Rome and Vienna, December 27, 1985: Four gunmen belonging to the Abu Nidal Organization attacked the El Al and Trans World Airlines ticket counters at Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Airport with grenades and automatic rifles. Thirteen persons were killed and 75 were wounded before Italian police and Israeli security guards killed three of the gunmen and captured the fourth. Three more Abu Nidal gunmen attacked the El Al ticket counter at Vienna’s Schwechat Airport, killing three persons and wounding 30. Austrian police killed one of the gunmen and captured the others.
- Berlin Discothèque Bombing, April 5, 1986: Two U.S. soldiers were killed and 79 American servicemen were injured in a Libyan bomb attack on a nightclub in West Berlin, West Germany. In retaliation U.S. military jets bombed targets in and around Tripoli and Benghazi.
It seems that after all of these years, Europe has not learned its lessons.
“Many of them now say privately what they will never say in public that it is probably too late. European governments are now hostages… the European media are also hostages, “said Millière. “In most European countries, “Islamophobia” is considered a crime — and any criticism of Islam may be considered “Islamophobic.”
“People trying to warn Europe, such as the Dutch MP Geert Wilders, despite an apparently biased judge and forged documents against him, are now on trial, “Millière said. “In Europe’s near future, more people will bring candles, flowers and songs to mourn victims. Another two or three jihadists will be arrested. But nothing will be done.”
