SIOE gets USA Attention
Posted by Exile on August 28, 2007
The press in Europe has been very quiet about the demonstration planned to take place on the 11th of September against the islamisation of Europe. As most readers here will know, this demo was blackballed by the mayor of Brussels, the socialist Freddy Thielemans. Many, if not nearly all, of those who were planning to go are still going. In fact, even as I write this, there is a meeting in progress in Brussels to overturn the mayor’s decision. More on that later.
The american press has finally picked up on the situation. The Wall Street Journal has brought an article dicussing the wisdom of Freddy’s decision to ban the demo. One has to be a subscriber to be able to read the entire article but the pre-amble is brought here.
The Right to Assembly
“I’m a free thinker,” says Freddy Thielemans. Really? Many critics now doubt it after the socialist mayor of Brussels banned a demonstration under the slogan of “Stop the Islamization of Europe” (SIOE).
The rally was scheduled for Sept. 11, and the organizers from Germany, Britain and Denmark had planned to bring about 20,000 people from all over Europe to protest not just Islamist terrorism but what they call the “creeping” introduction of Shariah law in their societies.

I don’t know if this will help or hinder what we are trying to do. But anything that can expose the erosion of our civil rights here in Europe cannot be good for the Euro-politicians. They constantly masquerade as the champions of freedom while denying us even the simplest of choices of self determination. Well done the WSJ. I hope they will follow the developments in Brussels on the 11th of next month.
