Brussels Cancels New Year’s Eve Fireworks Over Muslim Terror Threats

The New Year’s Eve fireworks display is being canceled in Belgium’s capital due to threats of an extremist attack.

Brussels Yvan Mayeur, the Belgian capital’s mayor, said the decision was taken Wednesday evening after consultation with government officials.

“We are forced to cancel considering the risk analysis done by the Crisis Center,” he told the French-language RTBF network.

    It’s OK; next year they can have an extra big Ramadan celebration. Maybe with fireworks … unless that’s Haram.

  • Hktony

    Next they will cancel all other religious events just in case ….
    What stupid people!

      For your safety, we must shut down Christian churches.

    No celebratory fireworks but armed soldiers in the streets…I know I feel more vibrant.

    Parties for the peasants (eg. New Years fireworks) will be cancelled due to an unspecific, nebulous threat of vibrant diversity and/or to demonstrate cultural sensitivity.

    Parties for the nobility (eg. Climate Change conferences in exotic locales) shall go ahead in brazen defiance of jihadists, because not pissing away taxpayer money on manufactured crises is what the terrorists want us to do.

  • Notice the policeman’s Islamic-looking beard in the photo below. Imagine giving a gun to this guy, to protect the crowd from a man just like him. Gambling or sheer madness? Many of the soldiers and policemen in Europe are now armed Muslims.

    So the Mo’s have ruined New Years…. Easter is next on their “to do” list… no more Easter Egg hunts…. the police and army will be too busy doing IED hunts…..
    But in true tradition despite the fact the Mo’s are doing a fine job turning the world upside down – (think of how they’ve changed air travel for ever)….stop the majority of Europeans on the street and they’ll tell you they dislike the Jews more than the Muslims.

    Britain is courting disaster – only 24 mahometans in this year’s honours list, up from 20 last year. Mostly public employees of course.
    The smaller Jewish community got 18 and they’re better honours too – a knighthood and two damehoods included.
    How can the mahometans stand this insult?

      I notice a high percentage of the Mo recipients of the award in the UK received it for “interfaith & community cohesion”… WTF does that mean?
      The guy who runs the local variety store works for “interfaith & community cohesion”…his store carries the Chinese papers and the Canadian Jewish News…. he deserves the Order of Canada!

        Deliberately meaningless.

        It means they got tons of free money to look busy.

    Muslim immigration shapes the West’s New Normal via threats, terror and mass murder.

    AKA, suicide by incredibly stupid public policy.

      You have to put the “t” in cult or people will think it’s cul, French for asshole.
      On second thoughts, you may be correct. We are being invaded by a multitude of assholes.

        Doh! Fixed.

    Tenth arrest in Brussels over Paris attacks.
    The man, named as 22-year-old Ayoub B., was charged with terrorist murder and participation in a terrorist organisation, prosecutors said on Thursday.

    But this has NOTHING to do with islam because 99% of them are peaceful and reject violence.
