Belgian College’s Concerns Over Paris Attacker Ignored: Newspapers

A police commission is interviewing staff at a Brussels college after education authorities failed to act on concerns that a student who later became one of the Paris suicide bombers had been radicalized, two Belgian newspapers said Saturday.

Bilal Hadfi, 20, named as one of the attackers who detonated a suicide bomb outside the Stade de France in Paris Nov. 13, attended the Anneessens-Funck college in Brussels until he dropped out in February to travel to Syria.

The two Belgian Dutch-language newspapers, De Morgen and Het Laatste Nieuws, cited documents they said showed staff was seriously concerned about Hadfi’s extremist views, which were evident in the classroom.

    Dropped out?
    In the middle of receiving a valuable and amazing Belgian education?
    To go to Paris and try to kill lots of of pork eating infidels?
    That doesn’t sound like any normal muslim who are as we all know, very respectful of higher education and the amazing male and female geniuses found therein.

    Islam’s fundamentals ARE radical. Islam’s fundamentals ARE extreme. Muslims are not radicalized, nor are they extremists, they are FUNDAMENTALISTS,

    Of course their concerns were ignored. They were “Islamophobic”!
