Yup, after a day spent fasting in quiet contemplation, and an evening dinner with the family, the best way to express the values of the faith during Ramadan is to...rampage through the streets of Europe. The Brussels Journal reports:
Around 8:30pm last night violence erupted again in Brussels, the capital of Europe. The riots centered on the Brussels Marollen quarter and the area near the Midi Train Station, where the international trains from London and Paris arrive. Youths threw stones at passing people and cars, windows of parked cars were smashed, bus shelters were demolished, cars were set ablaze, a youth club was arsoned and a shop was looted. Two molotov cocktails were thrown into St.Peter’s hospital, one of the main hospitals of central Brussels. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fires at the hospital, but youths managed to steal the keys of the fire engine.
From Gates of Vienna:
Actually, the Brussels police released the ten vandals they captured in order to “defuse” the situation. Now tell me: how do you defuse human refuse which has the capability to spontaneously combust? “Defusing” the situation is nothing more than cowardice. It inflames that which it proclaims to tamp down. What a joke!
No doubt these youths can find some hadith in their inflammatory belief system which will cover mayhem and whatever destruction occurs to them.
And of course, the media quails in fear before their new Islamic masters, and imposes a news blackout:
What makes this story unusual is that so far, there has only been one report issued across the newswires (by Reuters) covering the events, and even though the rioting is entering its third day, not a single photographer has been dispatched to document the activities of the Muslim mob....amongst all of this meleé, the Associated Press hasn't seen fit to send a photojournalist? Nor Reuters?
Snapped Shot links us to local news report with a " more telling video ".
I'll close with the opening of a post from EU Referendum:
When is a riot not a riot? When, it seems, it involves Muslims in Brussels, at Ramadan.
And finally, for 2:31 of perfect perspective, go see the video at Average Gay Joe's place....now!
