There will always be an undercurrent of anti-semitism towards the Juden because of all the trouble they have caused throughout Europe for centuries.

I don't understand why the Juden want to stay around people that hate them?

They stole land to create Israel, and claimed it was created as a place for refuge for them to hide out.

So why don't they all go there and leave the rest of the world Juden free. ... :dunno:

The kind of people who perpetuate this crap are your fellow travellers when it comes to your Islamphobia. Do you not see the connection ?

I feel that they should be grateful to Belgium for letting them live in that country.

I feel that they should literally get on their hands and knees every morning and give thanks to God for their good luck in being allowed to live in Belgium instead of having to stay in their homelands.

How sad that some individuals are so ungrateful that they would have the gall to insult native-born Belgians of Jewish descent.

Belgium is a strange country.

Israel has already lodged a complaint.

Belgium is a European country with a Jewish population of approximately 35,000 out of a total population of about 11.4 million. It is among the countries experiencing an increase in both antisemitic attitudes and in physical attacks on Jews.

According to Jeffrey Goldberg, the contemporary situation stands in contrast with the post-war decades, which were marked by a public consensus that antisemitism is morally wrong.[1]

Meanwhile is practically prohibited any negatives word about Jews. Are they better as another humans?
Why for example a Jew 'Litwin' can non-stop 24/7 bash Christianity, Russians, Russia and no one says a word to him.
Can he as a Jew do anything he pleases?

"attacks on Jews." is a product of Israel - Arab war. ethic Belgians dont attack the Jews, and Belgium is a democratic country , it can not stop 100% attacks , but they work hard on this issue

The people who created and displayed that kind of material are, I assume, immigrants.

I feel that they should be grateful to Belgium for letting them live in that country.

I feel that they should literally get on their hands and knees every morning and give thanks to God for their good luck in being allowed to live in Belgium instead of having to stay in their homelands.

How sad that some individuals are so ungrateful that they would have the gall to insult native-born Belgians of Jewish descent.

After Antisemitic Carnival in Aalst, Belgian PM, Top EU Body Hint at Legal Action Against Organizers
by Ben Cohen

Belgium’s prime minister and the European Union’s executive branch led the chorus of condemnation of Sunday’s annual carnival in the Belgian city of Aalst — which once again featured brazenly antisemitic caricatures — hinting that legal action could yet be taken against the carnival organizers for violating European and national laws against hate speech and incitement.

After 2019’s carnival showcased puppets of crudely-stereotyped Orthodox Jews sitting on bags of money to international condemnation, the 2020 event went even further. One group mocked Jews by wearing huge fur hats, long fake noses and ant costumes — bringing to mind the Nazi association of Jews with “vermin.” Other revelers wore fake hooked noses while carrying signs that read “Do not mock Jews” and “Do not tell the truth about Jews.”

Meanwhile, another float at Sunday’s event, similarly led by boisterous revelers wearing exaggerated “Orthodox Jew” costumes, poked fun at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Responding to the spectacle in Aalst, Belgian Prime Minister Sophie Wilmès said on Sunday evening the antisemitic displays “detract from our values and reputation of our country.”

She also suggested that carnival organizers might yet face legal sanctions.

“Belgium is a state of law,” Wilmès said. “It is for the Justice Department and concerned authorities to determine if the events during the carnival are in contravention of the law.”

In a separate statement, the European Commission — the powerful executive body of the EU that is headquartered in Brussels, just 19 miles from Aalst — said that it was up to the “national authorities” in Belgium to act.

A spokesperson for the Commission told the Belgian newspaper De Standaard that it would nevertheless “look at” the large number of complaints that were received on Sunday urging the Commission to act independently against the Aalst carnival.

The spokesperson added that especially as Europe was marking 75 years since the end of the Holocaust, “such images have no place on European streets.”

Top officials in Aalst openly embraced the antisemitic caricatures displayed on Sunday. A smiling Christoph D’Haese — the far-right Flemish nationalist mayor of Aalst — was seen posing with revelers who wore fake hooked noses, while his party colleague Ben Weyts dismissed protests against the carnival as a “grotesque exaggeration,” since “99.9 percent of the carnival-goers have not made any reference to Jewish themes.”

In an interview with the BBC on Monday, a spokesman for D’Haese insisted that the carnival was merely harmless fun.

“We don’t wish harm to anyone,” Peter Van den Bossche told the broadcaster. “It’s our parade, our humor, people can do whatever they want. It’s a weekend of freedom of speech.”
