Belgium largest source of European fighters in Syria per head: study

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – French, Germans and Britons make up the highest number of foreign fighters in the Syrian rebel ranks from European countries, but Belgium is the largest contributor in proportion to its population, a Dutch study shows.

Europeans fighting alongside Islamist groups in Syria and Iraq have been high on the agenda of European security concerns for several years. Returned volunteers have been involved in attacks in Paris and Brussels over the past 18 months, including last month’s bomb blasts in the Belgian capital.

    They made a ‘deal with the Devil’ and now the Belgians are aghast that ‘the devil’ has not kept up his end of the bargain.
    That bargain was that the Muslims could plot their terrorism in Belgium, just as long as they perpetrated their terrorism elsewhere.
    This is the exact same type of deal that France made with Palestinian terrorists in the 1970’s.
    Seal off Molenbeek, and forcibly remove, detain, and deport every single person there who was not born in Belgium and whose parents were not also born in Belgium.

      Better still, nuke Belgium, buldoze everything, salt the earth, cover it in 3 feet of concrete and post a 24 hour guard, just in case.

  • Belgium has this under control surely.

      Of course. Just today Belgium announced that immigrants will have to sign a contract saying they will abide by local customs. Which seems to be, shooting people and blowing them up while collecting welfare.
