Matthew Fisher: Brussels’ Africans have no patience for narrative that discrimination spawned jihadists

BRUSSELS — The narrative is heard constantly in Molenbeek and other Arab districts of Brussels: Arabs have been discriminated against and economically disadvantaged in Belgium.

It is offered as the principal reason the Belgian capital has spawned thousands of jihadists who are now in Syria and Iraq and dozens of other homegrown radicals who were at the centre of terrorist attacks last year in Paris and twin suicide bombings in Brussels last month that have left hundreds dead and wounded.

    Wow, so back in the mid 1960’s in a working class neighbourhood that was ruled over by the Elite in power in Ontario it should have produce Terrorist suicide-bombers instead of how we just worked harder while some started their own business in the Trades to repair the Homes of the wealthy and get part of their money that way.

    To me the funniest thing is that all the special interests are arguing with each OTHER about who is the most victimized by the victims of Islamic genocide. Trust me, you ALL deserve one another. All of you. I eagerly await the fusion flash of an Islamic nuke in Europe, if only to hear someone blame it on the victims, or better, the Jews.
