Belgium: Muslim Politicians Win Municipal Elections In Brussels, Vow To Turn Belgium Into Islamic State Ruled By Sharia Law
Europe is making its own bed to sleep in, and America isn’t too far behind …
The two candidates, Lhoucine Aït Jeddig and Redouane Ahrouch, both from the fledgling Islam Party, won seats in two heavily Islamized municipalities of Brussels, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Anderlecht, respectively.
During a post-election press conference in Brussels on October 25, the two future councilors, who will be officially sworn in on December 3, said they regard their election as key to the assertion of the Muslim community in Belgium.
‘We are elected Islamists but above all we are Muslims,’ Ahrouch said. ‘Islam is compatible with the laws of the Belgian people. As elected Muslims, we embrace the Koran and the tradition of the Prophet Mohammed. We believe Islam is a universal religion. Our presence on the town council will give us the opportunity to express ourselves,’ said Ahrouch, who refuses to shake hands or make eye contact with females in public.
A one-hour video of the press conference in French has been posted on YouTube. At one point in the video (0:07:40) Ahrouch, 42, says he will strive to make sure that the town council’s ‘motions and solutions are durable and definitive and will emanate from Islam.’
Ahrouch, who was sentenced to six months in prison in 2003 for the assault and battery of his disabled wife, also spends considerable time talking about ethics in politics and ‘respect for the other.’
Elsewhere in the video (0:25:40), Aït Jeddig, 50, commends Islam as having paved the way for ‘the emergence of European civilization.’ (He makes no mention of Europe’s Judeo-Christian or Greek-Roman roots.)” Read more.

Flashback: Belgium: Authorities Cope To Struggle With Muslim Crime Wave – “New Europe reported a recent incident that occurred on the streets of Brussels which raised questions as to the true integration of the Muslim population in an already divded country.
