  • State-politicians demand reforms in asylum policy, as well as in development aid. The Prime Minister of Sachen, Michael Kretschmer (CDU) wants to stop paying aid to countries that do not cooperate with expulsions. He was especially annoyed by the fact that embassies sometimes refuse their country’s nationals the papers they need to be deported.

  • “Ethnic jokes serve one purpose; to defuse ethnic tensions by normalising the differences between ethnicities. If we are not free to offend one another, then we are not free to make the kind of ethnic jokes that strengthen the social fabric of this country. Without the freedom to offend, we create a series of armed camps, each watching the others for any signs of transgression, both obsessed with defending the honour of their respective tribe. This can only divide a country by setting us apart from one another and making us strangers to our neighbours.”

  • The court decided to attach more importance to the fact that, in the five times she was questioned, the girl was inconsistent. There were some doubts as to the ending of what has happened, whether or not there were two or three men. When it came to passing judgement, the court was stalemated. Two found the accused guilty, two not guilty. The Public Prosecutor answered with a plea of nullity. That means the verdict is not legally binding.

  • The list of offences committed by members of these clans is long: robbery, theft, bodily harm, threats, protection rackets, drugs trafficking, illegal possession of firearms, right up to murder. In many areas, the clans control the streets, with critics going as far as to speak of ‘no-go areas’. Meanwhile, many of the criminal members are officially registered as depending on benefits (Hartz IV).

  • “On a lot of the schools I visit in Brussels, a majority is Muslim: 70, 80, in a few years 100%. Those children, they have to protect us in the future. They will also become police officers. Is that a reassuring thought? In view of the lack of critical thought characterising many of them, the mentality of segregation of the adults they live among, the irrational fears, poured into their ears by imams and preachers, the lack of empathy for those of different faiths? Those children, they might live here physically, but mentally they often live in Medieval structures.”

  • Again, the assailants used violence against passers-by, completely unprovoked. One of the perpetrators tried to extinguish a burning cigarette on the face of a 20-year-old woman, who luckily was able to avert the attack. One of the other men hit her in the face with a glass bottle instead. Another friend of the original victims, herself a 21-year-old, was thrown to the ground, injuring her hand and head.

  • According to a source with the police, the victim had made a complaint against a local resident, who had threatened to burn her. He had been seen in her apartment. Enough reason, to get the Criminal Investigation Division (police judiciaire; pj) involved. Saturday, police placed a 29-year-old suspect in custody. According to an inquiry by Bureau National de Vigilance Vontre les Actes Antisémites, Knoll was stabbed 11 times, and her house had been set fire to in five places.

  • The new separatism advances undercover. It wants to appear benign, but in reality, it is the weapon with which political and cultural Islamism seeks to conquer. Islamism seeks to be separate, because it rejects others, which includes Muslims that do not share its ideas. Islamism detests the sovereignty of democracy, because it denies its legitimacy completely. Islamism feels humiliated just because it is not dominant.

  • According to the NOS, the Public Prosecutor in Antwerp is investigating a gang-rape “involving” two Dutch women, after they visited a party in the Antwerp discotheque Roxy. They got talking with a group of men, and were probably drugged afterwards: the women told the police they can’t remember anything from after the party. The NOS reports that three men have been apprehended and that police are searching for a fourth.

    Nieuwsblad gives a different number of suspects. Their article reports five suspects.

  • “Does such a donation from one country not force the question of the independence of the receiving organisation? Which alliances is Interpol willing to enter into, in order to grow? Is it possible to finance the sovereign task delegated to an organisation with private money and not be made into an instrument? Is this the first step to a new world order, in which cooperation between police functionaries and international business is considered normal?”

  • The delegation went to Slovakia for two days, which is not long for what is a complicated investigation. It then took time to go and visit the place where the bodies were found. Which just sounds like some sort of tourist-trip: hardly a place to go for a delegation investigating the political implications of the murder, especially when there isn’t much time.
