On Friday, around 1 pm, a 28-year-old “Belgian” who was born in Turkey drove his white van at ‘extremely high speed’ into the tables of a café terrace in Brussels, injuring six people. Witnesses report they heard the perpetrator shout, “Allahu Akhbar!”
The six people’s injuries were minor, and pictures from the scene on Rue Saint-Michel show tables and chairs strewn across the floor outside the cafe. People had to jump away from the kamikaze van to save themselves.
A witness told VRT, “The driver drove from left to right down the street and hit everything he came across. My girlfriend and I had to jump for our lives.’
He added: ‘This was deliberate. He wanted to hit everything in his way. There was utter panic. People were screaming and yelling. I saw some people were injured too. Most of them were in shock. I was in shock myself. It was terrible.’
Another eye witness reported:
The driver did not stop after he smashed into the victims and fled the scene in the van, found abandoned by police on a nearby street at around 2 pm. Reports said the driver hit another car, but no further injuries were reported.
The police set up a perimeter and, among other things, used a helicopter to track down the driver. Police arrested the suspect in the city of Antwerp, 28 miles north of Brussels, about three hours later, local media reported. Victims and witnesses were interviewed, and authorities analyzed surveillance camera images.
It seems the Muslim migrant was relatively unsuccessful in his jihad attack since none of his victims required hospitalization or died. Nevertheless, the attack achieved Islam’s intended effect: “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve..” Quran (8:12)
Islamic Takeover of Belgium
As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, this past May, prominent American photographer, Donald Woodrow, was brutally attacked by a Moroccan Islamic minor in Antwerp, Belgium. The attempted murder, caught on video and in broad daylight, left Woodrow with a concussion and dislocated shoulder.
After the jihad attack Flemish Member of Parliament for the Vlaams Belang party, Sam van Rooy, said that the attack on Woodrow is just one more example of how “bad” migrant violence is “in the large cities of Western Europe; due to mass migration.”
The leader stated, “our streets, our neighborhoods are taken over by these Moroccan street thugs, and street thugs from North Africa, from an Islamic country.”
Vlaams Belang is not wrong to be concerned about the Islamization of Antwerp or Belgium. The Muslim community continues to grow through high birth rates and marriage migration. As reported previously at RAIR, one-third of Belgium’s population is of foreign origin. The most significant number of those are of Moroccan descent. Ninety-nine percent of Morocco’s population are Muslims. In Brussels, native or indigenous Belgians are already in the minority; nearly 80% of the population is of foreign origin.
According to Statbel, the country’s statistical office, in 2020, the most popular names for male babies in over a dozen municipalities throughout Brussels are Islamic, specifically Mohamed, Mohammed, and Ahmed (another form of Mohammad).
European Union elites are using migrants to replace European populations. Furthermore, they are being used by the left to dilute host cultures, ensure more votes, and seize power.
