Belgium to require immigrants to sign piece of paper supporting ‘European values’

Non-EU migrants and refugees wishing to live in Belgium will have to sign a statement declaring their acceptance of local values or see their residency claim rejected, a government official said, in a move campaigners fear will fuel anti-immigrant sentiment.

Parliament is expected to pass the proposal to introduce a “newcomers’ statement” in the next few months, according to a spokesman for Belgium’s secretary of state for asylum and migration, Theo Francken, who drafted the plan.

People moving to Belgium for more than three months would have to sign the statement which includes a pledge to prevent and report any attempts to commit “acts of terrorism”.


Yea, that’ll work, problem solved.

    Muslims are encourage to mislead we unbelievers, only the Left would come up with a ridiculous idea. The best solution is zero tolerance, deport every Muslim that commits an offense.

    • Belgium and the rest of Europe will descend into chaos before that happens.

      • Ron MacDonald

        Should that happen, the Left is finished for eternity.

        • WalterBannon

          You underestimate the left and its pervasive influence

      • WalterBannon

        It already has – this is chaos now. But it will get worse.

      The best solution is zero tolerance, deport every Muslim

    I love how the article – so very predictably – worries about the possibility that the proposal in question is “a move campaigners fear will fuel anti-immigrant sentiment.” Translation: we fear religion of peace enthusiasts will be offended – and we all know what happens when they are offended, don’t we?

    Always, always about the damn muslims: Screw them. The powers that be in our societies need to be made to fear an actual backlash from NON-muslims.

    With leadership like that,It’s a miracle Belgium hasn’t been nuked

      Give it time.

      Belgium already looks like ground zero for the mental retardation that’s affecting all of Europe. I always thought of the Belgique eurocrats as a bunch of harmless socialist policy-wonks, but im starting to think they’re the locus of the putrifying corruption that’s killing Europe.

    A. ” well I do….kinda”.

    I distinctly remember Hitler signing a piece of paper that promised “Peace in our time.” How’d that work out?

    • Doug Kursk

      Chamberlain? I believe the document is available for viewing online, so it would be interesting to see if Der Fuhrer’s signature is on the paper as well..

    The intention is not to make the ‘immigrants’ accept local values but rather to dope everyone else into thinking that’s the intention. Go back to sleep Europe, it’ll be over soon.

    Brussel is EU capitol… they wanted ’em they got ’em

  • Ed

    Wow! I’m relieved the government is taking a measured, proportional reasponse here. I was afraid they’d over react and go straight to the sternly worded letter.

    • Doug Kursk

      Or the dreaded look of concern…that’s the nuclear option of feel good inanities

  • Justin St.Denis

    There is no such thing as “Belgian balls”.

  • truthdareisay

    I wouldn’t laugh at Belgium .. Canada, under the Liberal government, vets it new immigrants now almost the same way…

    • Doug Kursk

      ^ this, sadly…

    • Millie_Woods

      It could never happen here…allah willing : )

    “European values”: unhinged homosexuality, feminazism, depravation, socialism. Why would any normal person would support that?
    It doesn’t matter anyway because in 20 years, when Muslims would be majority in Belgium, the local values would be Islamic values.

  • WalterBannon

    More do nothing from this treasonous government, only intended to keep the sheep silent

  • Maggat

    Oh gosh, that’ll work, peace in our time for sure. Will this ‘piece of paper’ be written in the two languages of Belgium or in arabic?

  • anotherjoeblogs

    Be tough, be rough and use some hyperbole and a hint of sarcasm to really change them. But be careful, you don’t want to disenfranchise and radicalise them too much, so add some indication that the world belongs to allah and islam is a religion of peace – we don’t want to hurt their feelings, do we ?

  • Martin B

    Does Theo Francken have the slightest clue how meaningless it is for a Mohammedan to sign a piece of paper for an infidel? This is pitiful.

  • moraywatson

    Islam doesn’t kill infidels, muslims do.

  • pdxnag

    And that if they were Muslim a declaration that they are no more? We can’t have folks running around who think it is their religious duty to wage sedition.

  • canminuteman

    Of course! That’s the solution! Why didn’t they think of that sooner?
