Jambon sees that many Muslims in Belgium hate Belgium, and assumes that this must be Belgium’s fault. It never seems to occur to him that Muslims might very well hate the West for reasons of their own, based on Islamic texts and teachings and having nothing to do with the behavior of Western authorities. The ethnocentralism and paternalism of his assumptions doesn’t occur to Jambon, either. He is just sure that the hatred comes from Belgium’s failure to integrate the Muslim immigrants. Yet the very idea that integration of Muslims into secular non-Muslim societies can happen on a large scale is predicated on the assumption that they will discard, or do not believe in at all, the Qur’an’s designation of Muslims as “the best of people, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong” (3:110) and unbelievers as “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). Why should the “best of people,” those who uniquely know what is right and what is wrong, submit to the societal mores and laws of the most vile of created beings? But of course Western authorities don’t bother themselves with such minutiae.
“‘Many danced after attacks’: Muslim integration failure caused ‘cancer’ – Belgian Interior Minister,” RT, April 17, 2016:
Belgium’s integration policy has caused a “cancer” within Muslim communities, many of whom “danced” after the deadly Brussels attacks last month, said the Belgian Interior Minister, blaming the government for failing to integrate migrants into society.
In an interview with a Belgian newspaper, Jan Jambon said that he regretted that a “significant” proportion of the Muslim community had been “dancing” in the streets following the attacks on March 22 in which 32 innocent victims and three suicide bombers were killed, and over 300 people injured.
“A significant section of the Muslim community danced when attacks took place,” Jambon told De Standaard newspaper as cited by AFP. Shocked with such reaction, the minister blamed Belgian integration policy which had failed to incorporate migrants and refugees into European society.
By way of example he said that residents of the Molenbeek neighbourhood in Brussels were very belligerent to both the authorities and the press during a raid which resulted in the arrest of the main suspect in the deadly Paris attacks last November which killed over 130 people.
“They threw stones and bottles at police and press during the arrest of Salah Abdeslam . That is the real problem. That migrants from the third or fourth generation turn openly against our society and have been willing to use violence or to justify it has to do with our policy,” Jambon said.
Based on the minister’s assessment, terrorists themselves are just a “boil” which is much easier to treat than the core of the problem which is “too deeply rooted” in the immigrant dominated parts of society where while the government “for many years ignored the warning signs.”…
