Great. Now will Muslims in Brussels be forced to take lessons on Belgian culture in order to foster respectful relations with non-Muslim communities? Of course not.

“Police FORCED to take lessons on ISLAM to foster ‘respectful’ ties with Muslim communities,” by Charlie Bayliss, Express, January 11, 2017:
BRUSSELS police will be forced to take lessons on Islam to help foster “respectful relations with Muslims [sic] communities in the Belgian capital.
Under the new initiative labelled “Conflict management or how to avoid difficulties when dealing with Muslims”, officers will undertake an eight-hour module examining the religion and study the history of immigration into Belgium from 1960 to the present.
Brussels authorities have added the new scheme on top of the existing COPPRA training, an EU funded project designed to equip officers on the ground to prevent and spot radicalisation.
Part of the training will involve role-playing activities and extra training to help officers spot radicalisation and jihadi brainwashing.
Brussels MP Annemie Maes said: “This training follows the request of the police force itself.
“Police believe that in a multicultural city, a basic knowledge of Islam is essential to a committed police force.

Brussels will be adopting the methods already used at Campus Vesta, Antwerp’s police training school.
Antwerp’s deputy police officer Bruno Peeters told Belgium media that the information taught to officers was “very respectful” to Islam….
