Translation by Michael Laudahn:
A protest was launched after the swearing-in of Redouane Ahrough, elected alderman for the Islam list at Anderlecht, around 7.30 pm on Sunday. ‘It’s the extreme right who express themselves, who do not swallow that we are integrated’, replied M Ahrough, after the incident.
Monday evening, the swearing-in of one of the two elected aldermen of the Islam list was disturbed. David Erzet, president of the Nonali association, an association that simply advocates the banning of the Islamic religion, rose at the end of the ceremony, in order to declare that it was illegal and anti-democratic to tolerate an alderman who ‘wants to install sharia in Belgium’. He was accompanied by Alain Wagner, president of ICLA France.
‘You have seen where the extremists are’, reacted alderman Redouane Ahrough, interviewed by our journalist Vanessa Costanzo. ‘We, we are loyalists. But some people want to be above the law. It’s the extreme right-wing who express themselves. We have been insulted for 30 years, we the 2nd and 3rd generation of Belgians. Today, they don’t manage to swallow that we are integrated, and that we quite simply will work democratically within the political system.’
Mischaël Modrikamen, the president of the Parti Populaire (PP), and five to seven members of the extreme right-wing movement Nation were present during the swearing-in of Redouane Ahrough at Anderlecht, but did not intervene.
The disrupters were rapidly removed from the hall of the municipal council.
In contrast, there were no disturbances at the swearing-in ceremony of Lhoucine Aït Jeddig in Molenbeek [Brussels], second alderman elected for the Islam list for Brussels capital.
All very interesting isn’t it? What with “far right wing” this and that. Even so, i must ask:
Why run a candidate democratically to install a theocratic totalitarian dictatorship?
