  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • 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.

    100 French public intellectuals sign pamphlet rejecting ‘Islamism’. Good stuff, so we translated it

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • 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.

    Belgium: Two Dutch women raped by four men “of African descent” named as Mohamed S. (22), Tijani D. (19), Eliel B. (20) and Lamine N. (20)

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • 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.

    Wut? Interpol received a €50 million donation from the United Arab Emirates, €20 million from FIFA, and many millions more from private companies

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “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?”

    Slovak journalist murdered after exposing political corruption, so the European Parliament sent six MP’s on a two-day symbolic investigation

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • 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.

    Dutch government refuses to protect “most threatened” French-Moroccan feminist and forbids her French security detail to do its job. Happy #WomensDay2018

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Despite the fact that IS has threatened to kill her, and she survived the attack on Charlie Hebdo three years ago by a coincidence, the National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism (NCTV) refused to provide security. What is even worse, it refused to give permission for El-Rhazoui’s French security detail to carry arms.

    EU’s anti-fake news bureau sued for spreading fake news. Dutch parliament now calls for its abolition

  • By: Vincent van den Born

    Analysis: EU sets 6-month deadline for Social Media Platforms to remove “Online trolls, haters and terrorist propaganda”. As usual, the plan makes very little sense

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • There doesn’t seem to be a clear, logical argument in this quote. Yet the EU selected it for one of its tweets. It is certainly true that online trolls and haters cannot limit our rights to express ourselves. She might mean that they cannot be allowed to do so, but it doesn’t say that. The suggestion now is that she is fighting ‘online trolls and haters’ who cannot limit rights, by setting up a system that will in effect do so, in the name of ‘online justice’.

  • By: Vincent van den Born

    “The murder of a journalist is a serious sign that the crime is turning against one of the most important pillars of freedom: the freedom of speech and the right of the public to control the powerful and those violating the law.”
