Be an active participant of SIOE

It’s a fact that the opponents of our project, Stop islamisation of Europe, are many and strong. EU, UN and governments who cowardly have sold their populations to islam. They don’t want our project and wish to stop us by all means. We saw it clearly at the 9/11 demo. It was pretty easy for our opponents to decimate the number of people attending from expected 20.000 demonstrators to a number between 400 and 500:
At first Thielemans banned the demo. Then the court wouldn’t take the final decision, and various politicians tried to slow down SIOEs process. Furthermore rumours of terrorattacks appeared which were not confirmed at all by the police. And finally, American foreign policy forces were interfering. Apart from wanting to stop the islamisation their first priority is still American foreign politics. Now they try to unite anti-islamic parties in EU, which apparently seems as a good idea, but remember, their efforts will still be on their terms.

SIOE wants something else. We see ourselves as an european grassroot movement, wishing to unite the europeans, putting all disagreements aside and work for the most important thing in Europe right now, to stop the islamisation of Europe. A movement free from political forces. Politicians and parties are always for sale in one way or another.

SIOE has learned from it’s mistakes, and is now presenting a non-hierarchal organisation where all dedicated people are in direct contact with the founders of SIOE. There will be a weekly skype cast, where updates will be provided on SIOE, the demos and the last progresses.


(It’s free to download Skype, and free to use. All you need is a headset (cheap), to be able to communicate via your computer)

Advantages by joining a SIOE skype cast group:

You will get the latest news on SIOE demonstrations and events
You have the possibility to come with suggestions for new SIOE events
You will get the latest news from other countries from the members of your SIOE skypegroup
You will get equalminded friends all over Europe and other countries
You are a part of an equalminded community who have one common aim: To stop the islamisation of Europe.
You’ll meet your skypegroup to the next demonstration

There will be established groups with ten persons in each group, and they will be from various countries, the main language in the beginning will be english, the group will be called and get 5 min. update on our demos and SIOE news, then there will be 5 min. discussion and then the group will be in contact with eachother the rest of the week discussing and getting new ideas to propose. This will also give a possibility for good friendships with people from other countries and people will look forward to meet eachother at the next demonstration.

When you got your skype name, then e-mail it to

An event organised by “Stop Islamisation Of Europe” (SIOE)

To coincide with Islamo-fascism Awareness week in which events are being held across the USA highlighting the bullying by Islamists against non-Muslims throughout the world

To protest against Kuffarphobia – the irrational fear and loathing of non-Muslims by Islamists.

To protest against the persecution of non-Muslims via Sharia law in Islamic countries.

To protest against the under-reporting or even total lack of reporting about such persecution in Western media.

To protest against the Islamisation of Europe by the changing of existing Western laws and practices to suit Islamic practices, in the name of “multicultural diversity”.

To protest against the entry of Turkey into the European Union especially now it has elected an openly Islamist Prime Minister and government who wish to replace secularism with Sharia law.

To protest against the second-class status of women in Islamic countries, particularly regarding sexuality, jurisprudence and education.

Millions of non-Muslims are systematically being persecuted because they live under Sharia law in Islamic countries.

In Egypt people are being imprisoned for leaving Islam, an offence under Sharia law, indeed this is a capital offence in many Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia.

In Malaysia Islamic apostates are unable to have “Islam” removed from their official documents because it is now against Malaysia’s laws to leave Islam. This denies a person’s fundamental rights even to the funeral of their choice.

In Indonesia Christians and other non-Muslims are persecuted to such an extent that tens of thousands have been displaced. Enforced emplantation of Muslims in Indonesian New Guinea is underway which is tantamount to ethnic cleansing.

Similar ethno-religious cleansing is taking place in Kosovo where Christian Serbs are being ousted from that part of Serbia, seemingly aided and abetted by the United Nations and NATO.

In the Middle East Copts and Assyrians are being persecuted by Islamists with the apparent approval of governments in that region.

Armenians were systematically eliminated, simply for being non-Muslims, by one of the grossest acts of genocide. Although perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire this act of mass murder is denied by the Turkish authorities. Turkey wishes to join the European Union even though denial of genocide is illegal in several EU countries, notably Belgium.

In Thailand and the Philippines terrorist murders are enacted on a daily basis by Islamists seeking to set up Islamic states.

Elsewhere Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians and Buddhists are oppressed and subjugated by Islamic authorities. The list seems endless.

Disgracefully, most of this Islamic persecution is never reported in the Western Media.

Stop mosque building in Europe!

A message to our European Union leaders (elected or otherwise)

No more mosques in the European Union until we see churches, temples and synagogues in Mecca

SIOE is applying to hold a demonstration in Marseilles on Saturday 8th December 2007.
This is the closest Saturday to Saint Nicholas Day, which is widely celebrated in Southern France.

The application is in two stages and the first stage is underway.

Until the second stage is completed we are unable to give precise times and locations.

As in other European cities, a large mosque is planned to be built in Marseilles, which SIOE considers to be one of the many tactics used in the Islamisation of Europe.

Many Islamist projects are known to have been funded by Saudi Arabia, which as the world knows, forbids any other religion within its borders.

Indeed, non-Muslims are not even allowed to travel in a large part of Saudi Arabia and are prevented from practising their religion in a purpose-built place of worship.

In fact, if any non-Muslim is caught demonstrating his/her own religion in the slightest way, he/she faces deportation, imprisonment or worse.

The European Union proclaims itself to be a bastion of freedom and tolerance, but such principles should extend beyond the borders of this “Union of nations”.

Instead we see an encroachment of Islamism on our ways of life with no reciprocity in Islamic countries, which are increasingly gravitating towards the Saudi Arabian Islamist philosophy.

Increasingly we see non-Islamic religious artefacts being destroyed or vandalised in Islamic countries.

Our European Union leaders should be demanding that Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia build Buddhist temples on their soil, rather than blowing up Buddhist statues.

Bridge building does not mean non-Islamic countries dumping mosques, often huge ones, all over Europe.

It also means Islamic countries building Hindu and Buddhist temples, synagogues, churches and other non-Islamic places of worship within their borders.

The SIOE Marseilles demonstration is to peacefully protest against the large mosque planned for the city being built.

Islamo-fascism Awareness week

Flag of the City of London

The next SIOE demonstration is planned for London on 26th October.

SIOE groups in other countries are urged to hold demonstrations in their own cities, if not on the same day then as close to it as possible.

This date is to coincide with:-

1. Islamo-fascism Awareness week (22nd – 26th October) where conferences, rallies and other events are scheduled across the USA Front Page report

2 The pro-referendum rally on the 27th October Pro referendum rally
This was to help people to attend both without incurring additional travel costs or the use of two weekends.

I am unable to give precise locations and times until final approval of the Metropolitan Police and other authorities, but the formal application has been made.

The subject of the demonstration is Islamic Persecution.

Political parties are not welcome, but individuals may attend.

Persecuted minority groups likely to be represented are

Indonesian Christians

And others

There will be speakers from these groups.

If any persecuted non-Islamic group wishes to be represented please contact SIOE England directly.

There will be a contingent of people opposed to Turkey’s entry into the European Union.

Flags of persecuted groups will be permitted, subject to prior approval.

Banners highlighting the plight of persecuted minorities in Islamic countries are permitted.

SIOE banners and slogans obviously are permitted and may be obligatory if other banners are used.

SIOE has sown the seeds of dissent opposing Islamisation, from which the flowers of freedom will bloom in our continent once again

The expanding anti-Islamism organisation Stop Islamisation Of Europe (SIOE) is delighted that the Flemish party Vlaams Belang has now started a Stop Islamisation Of Flanders movement

Vlaams Belang stated that it wanted to maintain the momentum started by the SIOE Brussels demonstration of 11th September 2007.

Vlaams Belang’s continuation of the struggle is exactly what SIOE intended to happen and we sincerely wish Filip De Winter and his party good luck in their future endeavours to stop Islamisation of Flanders.

SIOE has sown the seeds of dissent opposing Islamisation, from which the flowers of freedom will bloom in our continent once again.

We expect politicians from other political parties to be encouraged by this very first action to specifically protest against Islamisation, by starting their own Stop Islamisation programmes in all European countries.

We therefore urge political party members to contact their leaders to do exactly this.

Political parties by their very nature attract both supporters and opponents.

For this reason SIOE has tried to distance itself from being affiliated to any political party in our efforts to build a broad church of people who wish to Stop Islamisation.

SIOE is not a political party, but an action group with but one aim, to Stop Islamisation Of Europe, and we know that the majority of European people also desire this.

It is imperative for political parties to be involved with the Stop Islamisation movement because they provide our elected politicians.

However, most people do not belong to political parties and there is a large number organisations, such as women’s groups, who are politically neutral.

SIOE exists to act as a conduit for a wide range of people and organisations to work together to defeat Islamisation.

So, once again we say to people, put other differences behind you and unite to Stop Islamisation Of Europe.

The next SIOE Brussels-style international demonstration is Marseilles, France!

A slight change in “Aims and rules”

We have received an enormous number of emails from Flemish people many of whom are not Vlaams Belang members, but nevertheless angered by SIOE’s refusal to allow the Flemish flag to be flown in its 11th September demonstration in Brussels.

We wish to say that our intentions were honourable and we meant no sleight to the Flemish people.

The Wallonian cockerel would also have been disallowed, as would the Basque flag.

So we were not picking on Flanders.

In our efforts to keep things simple for the FIRST EVER Stop Islamisation demonstration we decided that if a country had a World Cup football team, then it could fly its flag.

Yes, it may be considered to be a trivial basis, but we had to make a decision, based on the reasons we have stated.

In contrast SIOE also received a large number of emails and phone calls praising us on our Aims and Rules and understanding what we were trying to do.

However, you can’t please all of the people all of the time, but we have learnt from our experience and will try to please most people most of the time.

Therefore, all future SIOE demonstrations will permit the flying of recognised regional flags in addition to national flags.

We reserve the right to stick to our other rules, which forbid political parties promoting themselves and for SIOE organisers to decide on which banners are appropriate for each demonstration, rally or other SIOE activity.

We ask people to understand that this is purely to keep to the single message of Stop Islamisation Of Europe, thereby focusing the media’s attention on this alone.

As promised, SIOE will publicise and promote activities against Islamism by other groups, unless we consider a particular group to be itself against SIOE’s own stated principles.

Gerard Batten's letter to the mayor of Brussels

Gerard Batten, MEP, handing in the SIOE Petition to the mayors’ office.

Below is Gerard Batten's letter to the mayor:

Gerard Batten MEP,
BD4 02M 105,
European Parliament,
Rue Vertz,

11th September 2007
Monsieur Freddy Thielemans,
Hotel de Ville,
Grand Place,
1000 Bruxelles.
Dear Monsieur Thielemans,

SIOE (Stop the Islamisation of Europe) Petition

Today I accepted a petition from Mr Anders Gravers, one of the organisers of the SIOE (Stop the Islamisation of Europe) campaign which he has asked me to pass on to you. Please find the petition enclosed.

I do not agree with everything that is said by the campaign but I do believe that they should have the right to peacefully demonstrate and express their views.

I do agree with them that the growth of fundamentalist and extreme Islam in Europe is a serious issue that needs to be addressed, and free speech should not be curtailed for those that wish to discuss it.

I would therefore respectfully ask you to reconsider your decision to ban their demonstration and permit them to hold a peaceful demonstration should they wish to do so in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Gerard Batten
Member of the European Parliament for London

Weekly Standard article describing what SIOE is fighting

This article describes the process of Islamisation taking place in Europe. Essentially it describes how our quisling, Judas and cowardly politicians and media grovel supinely before Kalifascist bullies.

Preemptive appeasement

Europe's new strategy for the war on terror.
by Daniel Mandel

TWO WEEKS AGO, Judge Simon Cardon de Lichtbuer of the Brussels civil court ruled that he lacked authority to overturn a decision by the city's mayor, Freddy Thielemans, to ban a demonstration planned for September 11 under the slogan of 'Stop the Islamization of Europe.' The rally had been called to protest what its British, Danish and German organizers call the "creeping" Islamization of European society.

Provocative in their assertion of Islam's incompatibility with democracy, the rally organizers nonetheless would have been violating no known law. Yet Thielemans (who had approved a September 9 rally by a group of conspiracy theorists who claim that the September 11 attacks were orchestrated by the Bush administration) neither liked them nor the possibility of a violent reaction from what he termed "Muslims," "peace activists" and "democrats."

This is but the latest manifestation of a disturbing European malaise--preemptive cringe before the threat of violence from Muslim extremists. It is no secret that Muslim extremists in Europe are very much likely to offer violence in response to conduct deemed hostile to Islam. Three key examples:

Find your local mosque and protest

The Times article Hardline takeover of British mosques describes how so-called moderate Muslims are allowing (condoning?) the takeover of mosques in England by a "hardline" (Islamist?) sect called Deobandi.

If you are concerned about this then get ten of your pals to each get ten of their pals and all demonstrate together outside your local mosque against Kuffarphobia and the Islamisation of England.

Find your local mosque here

Keep it legal and apply to your local police (assuming they don't ban your demo like Mayor Thielemans did in Brussels)

Anyway, let's get demonstrating outside mosques and persuade "moderate" Muslims to kick out Deobandi and similar "hardline" Islamist organisations.




Tuesday, 18 September 2007

Daily Telegraph letter

This is Islamisation and why SIOE exists. We have difficulty with the concept of "moderate Muslims" because organisations like the Deobandi take over mosques.

The rational conclusion is that Muslims desire this, or that "moderate Muslims" are actually closet apostates who dearly want to leave Islam.

It is not up to non-Muslims, least of all our government to maintain control of mosques, it is up to Muslims themselves.

Islamist danger

Sir – Britain sends some of the finest and most courageous of their generation to risk their lives and spill their blood chasing the Taliban out of Afghanistan. But who, meanwhile, is guarding our homeland?

A recent police report makes clear that, back here in Britain the Deobandi – the very same Islamist sect responsible for spawning the Taliban in Afghanistan – has succeeded in taking over more than 600 of Britain's 1,350 mosques. In addition, it controls 17 of Britain's 26 Islamic seminaries and produces 80 per cent of Britain's home-trained Islamic clerics.

It's a funny old world, as Margaret Thatcher once famously remarked. Except that this is no laughing matter. Not for 70 years has there been a more clear or present danger to our internal security, to our free society and to our democracy, than that posed by this vipers' nest in our midst. The Deobandi, an ultra- conservative sect, outlaws music, art, television and football, and also demands the entire concealment of women.

According to the Lancashire Council of Mosques, the Deobandi has now taken control of 59 out of 75 mosques in the old Lancashire mill towns of Oldham, Preston, Bury, Blackburn and Burnley. While not all Deobandis are extremist, leading preachers of this sect aim to radicalise the Islamic youth of Britain, and to mobilise them against our society and the freedoms we hold so dear.

When will the Government wake up to this mortal threat which – if not swiftly dealt with – threatens to bring strife and bloodshed to the streets of Britain on a scale far exceeding anything seen in the bombings of recent years?

Why are Gordon Brown and David Cameron, indeed our entire political class, so deafeningly silent on this, the most pressing matter confronting Britain today? Who will help the moderate majority of Muslims maintain control of their mosques? Who will safeguard the homeland?

Italy 9/11 rally

Our thanks to our Italian colleagues for holding a supporting rally on 11th September

Italian demo 1

Italian demo 2

Italian demo 3

Our thanks go to our colleague Adriana Bolchini Gaigher for arranging the Italian rally and for bringing to the attention of the Italian people that Europeans are now mobilising to stop and reverse the Islamisation of Europe.

We are certain that Italy will be a focal point in our efforts and a front in stopping the "Eurabia" project our EU politicians are determined to force through against the wishes of all sane Europeans. That this project is fronted by the treacherous French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his Mediterranean Union project shows just how duplicitous EU politicians have become and how shameless they are in deceiving those who vote them into power.

We now move on

The Brussels SIOE demo was a success in that

1. We brought to the attention of the world's media that Europeans are no longer prepared to be dictated to by an oligarchy of self-serving politicians who are hell-bent (literally) on destroying Western values in Europe.

2. It exposed what lengths grubby little men like Thielemans and Schulz are prepared to go to in suppressing those who dissent from their views.

3. It exposed what lengths such people are prepared to go to in assuring their double-standards are maintained, at the expense of ordinary Europeans who wish to maintain democracy.

4. The world saw that ordinary people are willing to come together to voice their strong opposition to the insidious Islamisation of their continent and Sharia by stealth.

5. A network of people was established which will now see SIOE expand into Belgium, The Czech Republic, Poland, Holland and other countries.

6. It showed the world that people recognised that Kalifascist terrorists were the only ones who committed the gross acts of mass murder on 11th September 2001.

7. A minute's silence was held to commemorate the victims of the 11th September 2001 Islamist terrorist attacks.

8. A petition of 10,000+ signatures was handed to Mayor Thielemans protesting against his disgraceful curtailment of free speech and the right to assemble in the political capital of the European Union.

SIOE wishes to thank all those who attended the Luxembourg Place rally despite the flagrant act of sabotage that undoubtedly confused people and kept thousands away.

SIOE wishes to thank Gerard Batten MEP for taking the petition and passing it on to Thielemans.

We thank those MEPs who supported our right to freely assemble, even though they may have disagreed with what our protest was about.

We now move on!

Two events are planned, one in London and the second in Marseilles.

We are not allowed to publicise the London event yet, but hopefully details will be published this week.

Suffice it to say, the London event will be against Islamo-fascism and Kuffarphobia.

Brussels was the first battle of the war to Stop Islamisation Of Europe and now ordinary, peace-loving people are joining together to continue the war towards our ultimate victory, by doing it the Western, democratic way - BY PEACEFUL PROTEST

Vlaams Belang broke the agreement

The agreement said that no Flanders flags would be flown and Vlaams Belang told us that its members and supporters would, therefore, fly no flags.

We have read comments by posters on websites and blogs suggesting we are being too hard on Vlaams Belang.

People must understand that we consider that Vlaams Belang broke an agreement which said that no political party would use 11th September 2007 to promote its own political agenda.

The agreement said that no Flanders flags would be flown and Vlaams Belang told us that its members and supporters would, therefore, fly no flags.

In return SIOE would report and support any future Vlaams Belang anti-Islamism events.

It was also repeatedly reported that Schumann Square was the assembly point, completely contradicting SIOE’s instructions to assemble in Luxembourg Place.

This could have lead completely innocent SIOE supporters, with no interest in Belgium’s internal politics, into what developed into a nasty situation in Schumann Square.

SIOE considered the safety of its demonstrators to be of paramount importance and our Aims and Rules explained this.

At a press conference scheduled later in the afternoon within the EU Parliament, Vlaams Belang distributed a leaflet reporting only the Schumann Square incident, and which also condemned the police for its “brutality”.

Following Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash having heated discussions with Vlaams Belang about the content and tone of the leaflet, the SIOE organisers refused to sit on the same stage with that party’s representatives.

Vlaams Belang made it clear in their statement to the assembled press, that the SIOE demonstration in Luxembourg Place was separate to the Vlaams Belang demonstration in Schumann Square.

One reporter suggested that organising a second demonstration at the same time and date as SIOE’s was rather a stupid thing to do, and SIOE agrees.

Subsequent TV news reports juxtaposed pictures of Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash with violent scenes from the Schumann Square debacle, even though neither of them even went to Schumann Square.

They both resent that.

Events at Schumann Square actually prevented SIOE supporters progressing there from Luxembourg Place, as originally planned.

SIOE considers that Vlaams Belang played right into Thielemans’s hands, which he must now be rubbing together with glee with an “I told you so” look on his fat face.

Some female Vlaams Belang supporters jokingly wore niqabs in Schumann Square.

Well, if Vlaams Belang doesn’t get its finger out of its political ass pretty damned quick, such women may find themselves compelled to wear niqabs when outdoors, if they are allowed out of the house.

The only way Islamism will be defeated is by fighting it single-mindedly, but you have to have a brain to have a mind, and it’s pretty obvious some leaders of some political parties are brainless.

Let us make it completely clear

One minute's silence to remember the 9/11 victims

Let us make it completely clear. There was only one SIOE demonstration: The demonstration planned for a long time that was advertised as starting from Luxembourg Place in Brussels.

Although Mayor Thielemans disallowed SIOE’s demonstration, it certainly lived up to all the rules SIOE had promised the Brussels police.

Vlaams Belang had repeatedly tried to persuade SIOE to hold only a static demonstration on Schumann Square outside the commission, suggesting that some agreement had been reached with the Brussels police about this.

Nevertheless, SIOE stood firm on its demand for marching from Luxembourg Square to Schumann Square.

We believe, therefore, that Vlaams Belang attempted to hijack SIOE’s demonstration because they knew that they could publicise their own domestic political agenda, on the back of the world news generated by our protest.

SIOE had given political parties the chance to show they are really serious in wanting Stop Islamisation Of Europe, by putting their other political aspirations to one side.

However, Vlaams Belang clearly was unable to do this.

SIOE’s demonstration was completely peaceful.

When Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash arrived to Luxembourg Place they were greeted by high-ranking police officers who announced that “the demonstration was forbidden” but that we would be tolerated if we stayed on Luxembourg Square and abided by our own aims and rules, which of course we did.

As the safety of its supporters and public order has always been paramount in SIOE’s organisation of the demonstration, SIOE complied with police instructions at all times without question, and had a peaceful demonstration in Luxembourg Place.

SIOE can only praise the police for their efforts.

The police only made a couple of administrative arrests of single persons that apparently had not understood SIOE’s rule of only displaying SIOE’s slogans on banners.

With this gathering we have proved to the world, Belgium and Mayor Thielemans, that SIOE can conduct demonstrations where peaceful ordinary people may respectfully deliver their messages to our politicians.

We did exactly that when a petition of 10,000 signatures complaining about Mayor Thielemans’s decision to ban the 9/11 demo was passed on to Gerard Batten MEP who will raise the matter of Mayor Thielemans’s prohibition in the parliament, in order to secure the right of peaceful people to gather and express their freedom of speech according to the EU-constitution.

Mr Batten ensured the petition was handed to Mayor Thielemans’s office.

SIOE does not wish to be associated with Vlaams Belang who held its own separate demonstration on Schumann Square.

Firstly, because we believe they obviously did not respect police instructions and secondly, we consider they vandalised SIOE’s efforts by holding their own demonstration, thereby distracting the both media and, more seriously, demonstrators who genuinely only wish to Stop Islamisation Of Europe.

Why couldn’t Vlaams Belang have made a demonstration some other day?

Why did they have to use the same time and SIOE’s slogans? The reason can surely only be that they deliberately tried to use SIOE to get in the media’s spotlight.

Whatever the reasons SIOE considers Vlaams Belang’s action to have been irresponsible and reprehensible.

This is why SIOE strongly disassociates itself from the Vlaams Belang demonstration that displayed Flemish flags, contrary to SIOE’s aims and rules that allowed people regardless of race, religion and political convictions to unite and say “no” to the insidious Islamisation of our societies, without the baggage of political parties. That is to say a wide front with a single goal, to Stop Islamisation Of Europe.

Therefore, it is disappointing that both the Brussels Journal and Gates of Vienna have stubbornly claimed that Schumann Square was the meeting place despite SIOE not having mentioned this place as an assembly point.

It’s also disappointing to see Gates of Vienna and Centre for Vigilant Freedom write about the two different demonstrations as if they were a single one.

SIOE is now establishing new branches in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Poland, Russia, France and Italy.

Now is the time to create a non-party-political organization with only one goal, to stop the Islamisation of our countries.

By popular demand we will be establishing a subscription membership scheme.

SIOE has decided, for the present time, not to co-operate with political parties in the future but only with individuals and organizations that share our wish for stopping the Islamisation of Europe, unless we have a written agreement drawn up by SIOE and signed by the leaders of the parties.

In other words a legally binding contract on SIOE’s terms.

However our main goal is still to attract ordinary people who wish to Stop Islamisation Of Europe.

International Islam Apostasy Day reminder

Just a reminder that the Annual Islam Apostasy Day is just four weeks away 12th October

So if you want to leave Islam pluck up the courage and contact one of the links on the right hand side of the screen under Leaving Islam, to receive advice.

Join the millions who have left Islam. If you can't wait until 12th October then no problem.

However, if some of your friends want to leave Islam, do it together and be mutually supportive.

Remember, if you live in Europe you have the law on your side and SIOE is here to make sure it stays that way.

Another letter to Davis from a SIOE supporter

Dear Mr Davis

I write as a European Citizen.

I respectfully disagree with the ideas expressed in the press release you released about the Stop the Islamisation of Europe march.

You say, "The fact is that Europe and its values are indeed under threat, but the danger is not coming from Islam". This statement is completely at odds with the known facts about recent terrorist outrages in Europe (and indeed the world), Muslims have been implicated or convicted of the following attacks: the Madrid train bombings, the London Tube bombings, more attempted London transport attacks, the attempted suitcase German train bombings, the attempted attack on London nightclub goers, the attempted attack on Glasgow airport, the attempted attacks on German airports, the derailing of a train in Novogrod, attempted attacks using liquid explosives at Heathrow... I could literally go on and on.

I agree that it is important for us to follow the rule of law and to up hold human rights, but we must not blind ourselves to the FACT that there are Muslim groups, in Europe, who have stated that they wish to destroy European civilisation and replace it with the Caliphate under Sharia law.

It is not wrong to oppose groups of this sort, indeed, I think that it is necessary, since if they ever came to power, the rights which you defend, including the right of women to choose their own clothing and lifestyle, the right to freedom of expression and the right to change your religion will all be severely curtailed. If you are serious about protecting human rights, you must oppose Sharia.

And Sharia has become worryingly important. There was a recent case of a German judge citing Shaira provisions in a German civil court in denying a German woman a divorce from her violent husband because she is a Muslim!

I am opposed to racism and xenophobia. I have been an immigrant to Europe myself. But opposing a political ideology or even a religion is not racist and not xenophobic. It is rational.

I sincerely hope that you will consider the ramifications of what you have said in your press release, and come to the conclusion that, respectfully, you are mistaken on this point.

Indeed, I think is is essential that freedom of expression includes the freedom to offend! I am sure that as a politician, cartoonists and satirists have made fun of you at times, and if not you, then certainly your colleagues. This must be offencive and hurtful to you at times, but we don't consider banning cartoonists or satirists from making their barbs! Why should we do so in the name of religion? If it is a Muslim religious duty to not mock the Prophet, I would be the first to stand up and condemn anyone who would force a Muslim to do that - but for those of us who are not Muslims, why should we be bound by Muslim religious law? I am not Jewish and happily eat bacon - should I stop that because it offends a Jewish religious law? Of course not, so it is the same about mocking the so-called Prophet of Islam.

The rights of freedom of thought, conscience and religion are indeed very important, but they are derivative rights, which cannot exist without the freedom to speak your mind and convince others that you are right! Freedom of expression, except where it is inciting people to harm others, must surely take precedence over the right of someone to not be offended - a right not mentioned anywhere in any statute of human rights!

We who oppose Islam do not oppose it as a personal faith. If someone chooses to be a Muslim, then I think that is their right - a sacred right enshrined in all the human rights charters in the world. But as soon as a Muslim comes into the public sphere and demands any sort of privilege or concession on the basis of that private belief, then it is our right to oppose that. Freedom of religion means that all religions should be treated equally in the public realm - and the state should be wholly secular.

Because of your strong support of the freedoms of thought, conscience and religion I hope that you are giving your maximum attention to the new societies of ex-Muslims which are establishing themselves in Europe. These people face physical attacks and ostracization from their communities because of the exercise of the rights who hold in such esteem. If anyone is deserving of support and help, it is them. If you are genuinely interested in supporting these people who are exercising these rights I can provide you with names and email addresses of some of these people.

Yours sincerely

Nick Pullar

Open letter to Mr. Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe.

I wish to express my deepest concerns and displeasure with your statements in the release 590 (2007)

Your statements:

1. “The fact is that Europe and its values are indeed under threat, but the danger is not coming from Islam.”

2. “Our common European values are undermined by bigots and radicals, both islamists and islamophobes, who exploit fears and prejudice for their own political objectives.”

3. “It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This applies to everyone in Europe including the millions of Europeans of Islamic faith, who were the main target of today’s shameful display of bigotry and intolerance.”

could hardly have been uttered more precisely by Adolf Hitler, we aggressive Europeans here being compared with Jews in Hitler´s terminology. And poor immigrant, imperialistic Islam , which has only one wish according to the “Holy Quran” and the Hadith: To attain a World Caliphate without unbelievers or with a few tolerated dhimmis like yourself, now take the place of the German People (das Deutsche Volk) of the Hitler ideology in your dictatorial EU-scenario of the Euromediterranean /Eurabian Partnership/Union. A partnership kept secret to us “criminal” Europeans (Freddy Thielemans) for now 12 years. And this although the EU has promised the 10 Euromediterranean Partner countries the 4 fundamental rights of the EU
in Naples Dec. 2-3, 2003 - including free immigration to Europe of the populations of 9 Muslim countries , besides the Balkan Muslims!!

Mr. Davis . You betray us - and did a long time ago already in your antieuropean , european-racist ECRI conclusions from Oct. 16, 2000 . Not Europeans who do not want to see our children grow in the sharia

You betrayed us when you let your Audio Visual Observatory arrange a Symposium in Moscow in July of 2005 to learn Media censorship in the form of “selfregulation” from the much experienced Russians

And the EU - which you are to be included in as an institution according to the new “Reform Treaty”, alias the Constitutional Treaty, which was rejected by the Dutch and French , but now to be pressed down upon us in spite of European popular disgust to it - also has deprived our media of the right of the free expression hypocritically promised in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights , article 11

Mr. Davis. You and your European Council, the EU and your Grand Masters are the bigots and the real danger to Europe. You have deserved your nickname: EUSSR. A name which has become even much more known after the scandalous treatment of the Flemish Party parlamentarians and Italian and other EU-parlamentarians at the Place Schuman in Brussels on 9/11 2007. This is really shameful.

Be assured: You are really doing a great job to

1. make the Europeans stick together and feel as brothers in their just struggle and self-defence against those who betray us.

2. We feel united in our struggle against this foreign imperialistic , fascistic ideology, Islam.

3. And you make us return to our ancient European values. Pressure begets counter-pressure.

We Europeans shall remember you all, when democracy returns. In the meantime, we dislike you.

“Europe is threatened by bigots - not by Islam”

Statement by Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, on the march “Against the Islamisation of Europe” 9/11 in Brussels

.............................if you are a muslim!

Strasbourg, 11.09.2007 - European values are under threat, say the organisers of a protest march under the banner “Against the Islamisation of Europe” which was due to place today in Brussels in spite of the ban by the city Mayor. The fact is that Europe and its values are indeed under threat, but the danger is not coming from Islam. Our common European values are undermined by bigots and radicals, both islamists and islamophobes, who exploit fears and prejudice for their own political objectives.

The self-proclaimed defenders of European values say that the Mayor has violated their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. The freedom of assembly and the freedom of expression are indeed essential preconditions for democracy, but they should not be regarded as a licence to offend. I will not enter into the discussion about whether the march should have been allowed or not, but I note that the protesters’ reading of the Convention is selective to say the least. It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This applies to everyone in Europe including the millions of Europeans of Islamic faith, who were the main target of today’s shameful display of bigotry and intolerance.

Eye witness report from Brussels on 9/11

A proportion of SIOE demonstrators were allowed to hold a minute's silence outside the EU Parliament to commemorate the victims of the Islamist attacks against the USA on 11th September 2001

On the 11th of September I broke the law.

To break the law is not something an ordinary law-abiding citizen will want to do, nor is breaking the law anything to be proud of, but on the 11th of September I decided to break the law by excercizing what I see as my rightful privilege, my Freedom of Expression, and by doing something which I think touch all of us to some degree, the 911 terror attacks on the World Trade Center and I wished to manifest the remembrance of the victims from the terror attacks on 911, now at it’s 6th year anniversary and to protest against the ‘Islamization’ of Europe which is creeping into our laws, institutions and social liberties with the emergance of more violence, political and none political, the oppressive instrumentation such as censorship and banning the right to freedom of expression, not to forget potential terror attacks.

Walking towards the demonstration was a stroll a bit out of the ordinary, the first greeting was the sound from the hoovering police helicopter patrolling above, coming from Avenue D’Auderghem towards Place Schuman I was met by police barricades blocking the road for traffic but people could pass through, on the last bit I counted 12 armored police vans and various vehicles, the most impressive was the huge water cannon truck, sirens were heard from here and there.

Coming to Pl. Schuman made me smile when I saw two cordons of battle-geared police officers walking in a line which made me think of a Duck walking with its Ducklings in my imagination while watching the slight funny walk when they are all hampered by carrying their long truncheons, huge boots and leg protection up to their knees plus the rest of the gear, the Brussels police had brought in the whole cavalery, horses included which rode in the round-about.

I decided to scan the area and walked counter clockwise around the round-about on Place Schuman looking for any demonstrators, so far all I had seen was police ducks and fellow pedestrians.

Looking towards Parc Cinquentennaire and where you see the mosque of Brussels, a place where demonstrators sometimes stands in the open space towards the park.

There were none, only some police and their various vehicles.

Then coming around to Berlaymont, the old asbestos infested EU building there were some people standing and looking towards the other side where part of the new EU office buildings is situated across from Berlaymont, there were of course a considerable number of police ducks and then a huge number of journalists, cameras, photographers and some people I assumed to be demonstrators, I watched for a short while and scanned the area, while doing so I heard someone say behind me in a conversation “Inshallah, nous sommes tous autours” - meaning - “Ishallah, we are all around” implying the area in the cocky way it was said.
I turned around and saw a bearded dude with a white round capsule on the head and wearing a male dress.

Shaking my head was he ridiculous I walked straight towards the EU building where the journalists were interviewing various people in three piece suits and I started looking for flags but saw none, most of the people were wearing suits and the rest casual wear, the most flippant were some of the journalists or photographers, I listened in to the different conversations in English, French and Dutch all of which I speak and understand trying to identify and figure who they were, I quickly indentified the Dutch speakers from the Vlaams Belang, a far right Belgian political party, some other demonstrators were MP’s and MEP’s apparently, but still no sign of the SIOE and SIAD, the Vlaams belang has got a different agenda and they are capitalizing on the Demonstration to push their own agenda of cutting Belgium into a Flemish Flandern and a Frencophone Wallonia, their MP’s along with other MP’s had protested against the ban on the demonstration by the Socialist Brussel’s mayor Freddy Thielemans.

There had been conflicting information as to where the demonstration was to take place, it was originally planned to be at Place Luxembourg in front of the main entrance untill the Brussel’s mayor banned the demonstration.
Seeing no sign or any flags and having no interest in Vlaams Belang or the media circus show I quickly decided to go to Place Luxembourg and walked down Rue Artsloi which ironically translates to ‘Law Street’ and there was ‘law’ on this pleasant sunny and shady day everywhere you looked.

Turning away from Rue Artsloi towards Place Luxembourg more police vans and busses were parked on Rue D’Arlon, all the shops, cafe’s, sandwich outlets etc and the street was business as usual oblivious to the police ducks whom I guess left them a good turnover selling sodas and sandwiches at the end of the day, all very peaceful.

Arriving at place Luxembourg there were more police ducks standing all around the square, despite from that everything looked ‘normal’, the occasional chop-chop from the helicopter to add to noise from the busses and cars driving as normal, all the cafe’s were open, terrasses were full of guests having lunch or having coffee, everything looked well after by masssive numbers of bored police ducks, another touch to go with the lunch for the guest at the terrasses setting under the parasols and shades.

Then there, finally I saw some people with flags in front of the entrance to the EU and I joined them, pleased to discover that more than half to three quaters of the flags were Danish, there was about 50 to 70 people present surrounded by 5 to 10 times the number of police ducks, vans ready to take anyone for a ride, anyones guess to how many police ducks but it was strikingly disproportionate and then of course the media in the various outfits standing on the pavement in front of the entrance to the ‘Cathedral Of Corruption’ as it is called in street jargon due to the scandal of the three numbered millions which disappeared buidling it, the new EU building.

Bearing a national flag or banner that day in Brussels would mean immediate arrest and therefore most of the people had flag pins attached to their shirt, suit or jacket and almost all wore Danish pin flags, Danes and also none Danes, some Danes had small birthday party paper flags, the demonstrators came from the UK, Denmark, Russia, Poland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia.
The original estimate had been 20.000 people but less than a 100 was present at Place Luxembourg.

The arrest hanging over the head and the massive intimidating police duck presence was more or less ignored and people they stood and chatted equally oblivious to the civil dressed police officer with a Mr Smith earpiece among the demonstrators who equally chit chatted, the Danes had equally big Danes with ear pieces, everything was peaceful and in the best order, the demonstrators was from 20 year to octogenarians, a third in suits and the rest in casual wear, nobody wore boots either but it was a mingle of intellectuals, people in suits to long haired half hippie types and women in high heels, odinary people in other words to make the point.

The demonstration’s other purpose was to get together and exchange contacts, information and talk and discuss various issues.
The situation was getting tense and the police ducks were getting nervous after a high ranking police officer with a gold adorned cap arrived in a car and started to talk to the police ducks sitting in the car just beside the pavement where we all stood oblivious to the presence of the police with no no banners, no flag waving, nothing but chatting.
Anders Graves from SIAD made a speech while the few numbers we were were simply gathered in a circle, after telling the crowd the various reasons for why we are gathered here today came the moment of remembrance of the 911 victims 6 years ago and to honor them with the one minute of silence…

After ten seconds someone suggested we all sat down, the street noise was overwhelming with city busses and cars, so we all sat down in silence and it was a very powerful moment which took even the police ducks with a sense of unease after the high ranking officer had told them we had to break up and the moment also caught the passers by from across the street, from the bar and terrasse watching while everyone sat in silence and looked down the ground, we all knew we risked to be arrested and everything had been tried to prevent the remembrance from happening on the 11th of September 2007 in the capital of Europe, in spite of water cannons, horses, impressive amounts of vehicles, whole regiments of battle-dressed police, barbed wire fences in strategic places, helicopters, the medias and sandwich bars going on as usual making the whole thing surreal in regard to a handful of people who managed to ignore all that and manifest the remembrance of the 911 terror attacks with sitting down in silence - This time to protest against the ban and freedom of expression.

We all had our different reasons and feelings to be there, the Poles they said simply, “to be arrested we are used to, we have lived under the communist regime and this wont stop us” the Czechs and the Russians agreed.

The Brussel’s mayor and the Belgian authorities have done everything to prevent it from happening, they had contacted Anders Gravers from SIAD in Denmark and told him that there had been threats of a terror attacks and they risked someone to blow up with an explosive belt, that it could cause unrest none of which was the case but a white lie and an attempt to frighten SIAD into make them cancel the demonstration which Socialist mayor Freddy Thielemans had forbidden, there had been protests in front of the Belgian embassy in Denmark and other countries to protest against the ban, Friday the the 7th the court turned down a demand to lift the ban.

Rumours about skinheads and muslim gangs had circulated, counter demonstrations and riots, there was none of either, Islamists most certainly kept away by the police and most probably by the promise of the mayor to ban the demonstration, still some were to be seen in pairs here and there with mobile phones but there was none of what the mayor had sold to the medias to falsely justify a ban, thus acknowledging ironically that terror threats and extremism is what it is all about and banning a peaceful demonstration using the threat of political violence, assassination and riots as an excuse against peaceful manifestion of citizens excercising their Freedom of Expression and protesting against Islamization and terrorism.
All that digested sitting in silence in remembrance of 911 and which all of us had discussed and beyond.

After sitting in silence, the dicscussions continued and listen to various voices, Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash from SIOE had been busy back and furth with interviews, the media attention was enormous regarding the number of demonstrators.

Meanwhile this had taken place at Place Schuman:

I just returned home from the anti-Islamization demonstration in Brussels. The Belgian police beat up the peaceful demonstrators in what even the Belgian public television call “an extremely violent fashion.” Here are some video images. The grey-haired man whom we see being attacked by the police first is Luk Van Nieuwenhuysen, the Vice-President of the Flemish Parliament. Shortly afterwards we see the police maltreating Frank Vanhecke, a member of the European Parliament and the party leader of the Vlaams Belang. We see how he is handcuffed and pushed into a police bus. Afterwards we also see the police “taking care” of Filip Dewinter, the VB group leader in the Flemish Parliament. We see how his arm gets caught between the closing doors of the bus. An Italian MEP and a French MEP were also arrested. The demonstrators were kept in cells for seven hours and released this evening.

The Italian government is lodging a formal complaint with the Belgian authorities after one of its European Members of Parliament was arrested during a demonstration against the “Islam-isation of Europe”. The rally had been banned by the Mayor of Brussels for fear it would threaten public order. Among those detained was Italian Northern League member Mario Borghezio. He was arrested along with other European politicians.

Italy claims his arrest violated his right to diplomatic immunity. Borghezio challenged the decision of the Belgians to stop the protest in the first place: “It doesn’t seem normal to me that on the 11th of September, in a European capital, a demonstration involving European parliamentarians, against fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, can be banned.”

The European Union’s top justice and security official, Franco Frattini, also said the protest should have been allowed in the name of free speech. But a total of 154 people were arrested. They were released after a few hours.

It is a disgrace and unbelievable that they crack down on even politicians excercing their Freedom Of Expression.

Everyone also a littel annoyed with the Vlaams Belang for other reasons because they had couped the demonstration and had tried to take away the press conference from Gravers and Gash.

With what was going on at Place Schuman where the police ducks happily were beating away on the MEP’s, the MP’s and demonstrators I presume that was behind the reason why the police ducks visibly were starting to get nervous after talking to the officer with the gold adorned cap who gave the orders apparently.
The demonstration at Place Luxembourg was absolute peaceful and jovial was then told to break up, they apparently had received and we all gave phone numbers to be told where to meet on a later specified place but that never happened -

Nor did the mayor succeed in making a splatter fest on Place Luxembourg.

The Vlaams Belang had nothing to do with SIAD and SIOE but they tried to capitalize on the whole thing being on Place Schuman, what was scandalous was that they got arrested along with MP’s and MEP’s, Belgian politics are fierce these days, the mayor being socialist with apparently Fascist tendencies and the VB advocating a secession of Belgium, adding another dimension to the mess.

The intention of the police probably on Pl Luxembourg was to get all of the demonstrators separated but that was never the case either, all of the demonstrators decided simply to go across the street to the terrasses on Place Luxembourg and sat down at the tables and all continued to discuss blending in with the rest of the guests and drinking beer and coffee, the police was just left standing nonplussed, all demonstrators had obeyed their every demand and been peaceful and jovial.

Then the unthinkable happened a couple of hours later, the Brussel’s mayor Freddy Thieleman arrived with 11 other people and sat down on a table just besides ours at Taverne London, the mayor being oblivious that the terrasses were full of the demonstrators, at Place Luxembourg the terrasses and bars are frequented by EU employees having lunch and having drinks and none did notice the mayor at first either and none of us stood out in any way, just looking like guests.

He was cracking jokes and laughed with his compagnions, he has had his field day turning Brussels into an occupied zone, had 154 people arrrested and run a nasty smear campaign prior to all that, cheers, then he got recognized and then we started talking to him and his fellow friends, they quickly recognized us after seeing the small pin flags, some had their pictures taken behind him for souvenirs, we all started laughing at the absurdity as simply still being there looking as ordinary people all around him while he had his supposed victory toast and probably to check out Place Luxembourg that everything had been to his liking.

It made my day.

I had the fine opportunity after he had asked where we all came from, asking his table what ‘Freedom of Speech’ meant, some shook their heads and then I repeated in French, then to humiliate him further I told them it reminded me of a return to the 1930’s and that I thought the mayor was behavig like a Fascist - I let it sink and then I added that ‘you know, we have got no Fascists in Denmark, but we love cartoons and we still have got freedom of expression’.

It felt good.

The whole scenery and event of the afternoon proved the point.

I suppose it got him thinking, others started to ask him questions and he had smiles all around and cheers, though most with sarcastical twists but his cocky attitude had vanished, some of his compagnions looked at unease by the mayor being called a Fascist - That was very sweet, others too told him they thought he was a Fascist and I think it dawned on some of his compagnions, discovering that every single guest being a rational and down to earth person.

After a while he left with his troop and some said thanks for coming and having us here.

Then during the afternoon some people they left to catch planes or trains and the rest gathered in an Irish bar next door called O’Farrel’s where we got all the back of the bar to ourselves provided nobody smoked cigarettes, that is banned too and that we all consumed for more than 250€, business as usual in Brussels, so we happily complied and ordered pints of beer, the amount was easily reached.

The whole thing was worth it and with SIOE to start in Poland, the Czech Republic, Belgium and Russia, it was decided to reject all political parties with the rational decision that SIOE can’t support any political parties but all political parties can support SIOE and speak their cause - As Anders Gravers illustrated to a journalist asking him if he was rightwing he asked back “Tell me if it is rightwing or leftwing to be against stoning?”

The journalist didn’t know what to answer.

There were no real rightwingers and left and center was represented, now about 30 demonstrators was left, the core of the demonstration with a multitude of nationalities and many Danes, basically everyone already rejected political attachment, the whole point is to preserve western liberty and constitutions and European culture, the fundation of what it makes it possible in the first place to have political parties and individual freedom.

The future and strategies of SIOE were discussed, Stephen Gash and Anders Gravers gave their account of the event of the day and many a cheers for liberty was said into the later hours.

All this makes me happy in a strong sense that I decided to break the law on the 11th of September 2007, 6 years after the terror attacks on the twin towers in NY and on Pentagon, and that being in the European capital where it was forbidden to remember the victims of 911 on the 6th anniverary and to protest against the political prohibition and ban on Freedom of Speech, all being there with the risk of being arrested and beaten up by police and under threats of terror attacks voiced by the Belgian authorities and Brussel’s mayor to further intimidate and prevent people from showig up, in so many ways was the demonstration seeked quelched it is surreal, it is a disgrace to the capital of Europe.

Not being someone who fancy demonstrations it was quite impressive to see the whole cavalery of police, quite impressive…. And that being against my voice.

The whole thing is food for thought….

Rolf Krake, a Dane.

Post Brussels

Everything was peaceful in Luxembourg Place, but a good amount was achieved

A press release will be made later today

We learned alot from organising this and future international events will benefit from the Brussels experience.

Brussels demo guide

Luxembourg Place is not large. The signal to move off from the assembly point will be stewards raising white objects in their hands at the allotted time.

Please use white cardboard for the rally cries for your signs




Good advice: Bring an umbrella. It’ll help a lot if it stats to rain hard!
After the demonstration please don’t carry your signs around in the town. You’ll easily be recognised as a participant in the demonstration.



Emergencies & Ambulance 112
Police 101
Red Cross 105

Legal help: 0475 47 24 55

Are you lost during the demo: 0474 89 53 73 or 0485 52 95 05 Remember: The phones are not open before tuesday morning

We will provide you with some more numbers Monday.


Restaurants are generally of a high quality and reasonably priced as long as you avoid obvious tourist traps.

Budget Eating:

The best value is a chain of self-service restaurants called LUNCH GARDEN.

There’s a good one in the INNOVATION Department store in the Rue Neuve,

a pedestrian street parallel to Place de Brouckere. Go to the Lunch Garden grill

counter and they’ll cook you a steak, pork chop or chicken piece in front of you.

Can be hectic at peak hours.

The local McDonalds imitation is QUICK BURGER. They’re everywhere.

They serve wine and beer too.

The local version of KFC is HECTOR CHICKEN. There’s one on the PLACE

DE BROUCKERE (metro: Brouckere.)


Steak and chips (‘steck-frites’) must be the national dish. Other local

dishes include ‘waterzooi’ (soup with chunks of chicken) and ‘carbonade’

(Beef stewed in beer.) Round off your meal with a waffle (‘gauffre’) with ice-cream

or fresh cream.

The restaurants and cafes along either side of the BOURSE (the old stock

exchange building that looks like a Greek temple) are mostly reliable and

popular with locals as well as tourists. The FALSTAFF is a traditional

place with a good reputation. A big meal around here should cost about

£10/15 a head. Check out the daily Specials (‘plat du jour’) or set menu

for bargains.

Avoid the restaurant area known as the ‘Ilot Sacre’ in the narrow

streets around the Rue des Bouchers. It’s colourful but over-priced.

The back streets around the Grand Place have lots of bars and small restaurants

too, including decent pizza places. Avoid kebab joints.

The area known as ST CATHERINE’S has more upmarket restaurants,.

many specialising in seafood.


No lack of beers to choose from. Stella Artois, Ekla and Jupiler are popular.

Try some of the less well-known types like gueuze, lambic, kriek or ‘white

beer’ (biere blanc.)

A white coffee is a ‘café au lait’. A creamy coffee is a ‘café crème’. A latte type

milky coffee is known as a ‘lait russe’.


Brussels has a reliable transport system with a metro (underground), buses

and some remaining trams. Any journey costs 2 Euros including

changes in transit.


Brussels is generally pretty safe especially around the Grand Place district.

Watch out for pick pockets in tourist areas and on crowded buses and trains.

The areas around the Midi Station and North Station are best avoided at night.

Same for the area around the Botanical Gardens.

Is Udo Ulfkotte exercising dhimmi-status?

Statement from Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash regarding Udo Ulfkotte’s behaviour.

We started SIOE to be an umbrella organisation bringing together groups and people from a wide range of political, religious and cultural practices, but who are united in the single issue of stopping Islamisation of Europe.

We invited Udo Ulfkotte to join our team because he promised much in the way of influential contacts.

From the start we (Anders and Stephen) have worked as a team and communicated daily on developments and direction.

This was never the case with Udo Ulfkotte. Although he corresponded with Anders fairly regularly he was never fully forthcoming with any news regarding contacts, for example, or interest shown by the media.

This made it difficult for us if the media contacted us with respect to Ulfkotte’s statements, because although the media heard them, we did not.

Ulfkotte is not a team player in our opinion and this has been shown to its extreme over the last few days with him appearing on media outlets, especially in Belgium, saying HE cancelled the demonstration.

At no time did he seek permission from us to make such an outrageous statement, and he had no authority to do so.

He was declaring to the media that the demonstration had been cancelled, even though the final judicial verdict had yet to be made.

He could not have done a better job of trying to make the court case fail to reach a verdict in our favour and undermine SIOE’s lawyer’s attempts to reinstate the march.

We regard his behaviour as despicable and we both regard Ulfkotte as a Judas to the cause of anti-Islamism.

We regard his conduct to be calculated in making the demonstration fail.

Why this is so, we are still investigating. He may be employed by the European Intelligence Agencies, he supposedly acts as a consultant to, or it may be solely due to him selfishly pursuing his own political career .

There may be a more sinister reason, but we don’t actually know because he hasn’t had the guts to tell us.

Udo Ulfkotte has declared he intends to start and lead a political party to combat Islamism.

We believe he couldn’t lead a starving donkey to grass. He is a director of Pax Europa. Well, we believe he couldn’t direct a drinking straw into a bottle.

Once again we say, “If Udo Ulfkotte is the best Germany has, to combat the Islamisation of Germany, then God help Germany!”

In his pathetic utterances about cancelling the Brussels demo, Ulfkotte stated it was because of terrorist threats.

This is exactly why SIOE was set up. Terrorist threats are part and parcel of Islamism and we knew that millions of European people are willing to stand up to such threats.

However, Udo Ulfkotte is not one of them. A few days ago he was telling us by telephone he “never intended to split SIOE’s effort,” when explaining why he organised a Cologne demonstration for 11th September, without telling either of us he was doing so.

He went on to say “I will be in Brussels, of course”, then the next day he is telling the media “I have cancelled the Brussels demonstration”.

Ulfkotte is in no position to cancel the Brussels demo. The Brussels demo was our initiative, not Ulfkotte’s. We decided the place and date; we drew up the Aims and Rules, not Ulfkotte.

His input has proved to be minimal and now he is doing his best to ruin our efforts.

He is nothing more than a saboteur who is doing no favours for the people of Germany, let alone Europe.

In our opinion he is a pathetic coward and German people would be best advised to avoid him and his future political party, unless they wish to endure an existence under Sharia law.

SIOE PRESS RELEASE. Meet up 9/11, twelve o’clock at Luxembourg Square

Our decision based upon the legal proceedings

Today, the civil court to which SIOE’s lawyer, Hugo Coveliers, made the second appeal to overturn Mayor Thielemans’s ban ruled itself “incompetent” to make a decision.

This was because the first court to hear SIOE’s appeal, namely the National Council, had not yet made its decision on the Mayor’s unilateral ban.

The National Council had declared that a decision could take up to two years and the civil court today said it could not itself make a ruling until the National Council had completed its own proceedings.

Therefore, neither court has declared that the Stop Islamisation Of Europe demonstration is illegal.

In SIOE’s opinion the demonstration was prepared according to European Union laws protecting free speech and the right to assemble, and therefore, will proceed as planned.

Information for participants:

Five telephone numbers will be made available for persons to request directions and other assistance, on the day of the demo. Watch SIOE’s websites for details.

Another telephone number will be provided for people to ask for legal assistance, on the day, should it be required.

SIOE’s prime concern has always been the safety of participants.

Anti-Shari'a 9/11 Protest Will Go Ahead Despite Hurdles, Organizers Say

Patrick Goodenough
International Editor
- Anti-Islamist activists are still planning to demonstrate in Brussels next Tuesday to mark the sixth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks and protest against the "Islamization of Europe," but organizers are grappling with legal difficulties and warnings that violence may erupt.

Organizers from Denmark, England and Germany planned the event several months ago, but ran into legal hurdles when Brussels Mayor Freddy Thielemans banned the demonstration, citing the potential risk to public order.

Thielemans wrote in an op-ed on August 20 that by choosing 9/11 for the demonstration the organizers obviously intended to draw a link between terrorism and the religion of Islam, a move he called "incitement to discrimination and hatred."

A loose alliance calling itself SIOE ("Stop Islamization Of Europe") said it would go ahead regardless of the ban, while appealing against the ruling. The activists deny the racism allegation, saying their aim is to prevent Islam from becoming the dominant political force in Europe and stop the "creeping" introduction of Islamic law (shari'a).

On August 30 an administrative appeals court upheld the mayor's ban, but SIOE took its case to another tribunal, and a Brussels civil court decision is expected shortly.

Socialist lawmakers in the European Parliament wrote Wednesday to Thielemans - also a socialist -supporting his decision to ban the rally.

"Like you, we are convinced that the people behind this demonstration want above all to stigmatize a community for dark racist and xenophobic reasons as is proven by the readiness to lump Islam together with fundamentalist terrorism," said Martin Schulz, a German who heads the Euro-parliament's socialist group, a collection of 33 left-leaning parties from all 25 E.U. member states.

Amid reports that neo-Nazis are planning to turn up, the alliance fractured this week when a German organizer said the protest should be called off because of the risk of extremist activity.

The Danish and English organizers distanced themselves from the German position, saying the protest in the European capital would go ahead as planned on September 11.

At the same time, they are continuing to appeal on their Web sites for participants to follow a set of simple rules, including restricting slogans to the main theme and carrying only national flags, not party political or organizational banners.

"Racists and violent people or organizations are not welcome to join our demonstration," they said.

Meanwhile a controversial Muslim organization that had been planning a counter-protest in central Brussels on September 11 has called off its event, after Thielemans turned down a request for permission.

Arab European League (AEL) representative Mohamed Benhadou said in response to emailed inquiries that the group had planned "a peaceful demonstration to call for rapprochement between communities and to stop racism."

But it accepted the mayor's argument that the presence of "a large group of right wing protesters puts our security at risk because of possible provocation," he said.

The AEL, which was founded in 2000 by a Lebanese-born political activist, was accused by a government anti-racism body in 2002 of inciting hatred. It has called for Arabic to be recognized as an official language in Belgium.

About four percent of the population of Belgium is Muslim, although the proportion is much higher -- estimated at 17-20 percent -- in the Brussels region.

Thielemens has approved a demonstration in Brussels on September 9 by a group that suspects the Bush administration of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks and wants an international inquiry.

Refreshed leadership and provisional plan

Anders Gravers and Stephen Gash, founders of SIOE, have assumed control of events on 11th September in Brussels.

Initiative for the the 11th September demo was Anders Gravers's and Stephen Gash's, not Udo Ulfkotte's, who was invited to join later.

Udo Ulfkotte and Pax Europa no longer have any part in the organisation of the Brussels demo.

This is because of Udo Ulfkotte's unilateral declaration that "he" was cancelling the Brussels demo, which he had no right to do.

So, on 11th September:-

Provisionally participants will commence from

Luxembourg Square at 12.00

then proceed to

Schumann Square in front of the European Commission

where petitions and letters will be handed in.

Scaremongering by the authorities


SIOE has received emails and messages from people who are concerned about reports appearing in the news about possible terrorist attacks against the Brussels demo on 11th September.

There has been a strategy played out by the authorities to discourage people from attending the Brussels demo because some people in power feared that ordinary citizens in Europe were at last beginning to voice their opposition to the oppressive oligarchy controlling our lives, which is actually leading us towards the Islamisation of our continent.

Firstly, they ridiculed SIOE’s efforts by saying nobody was interested or worried about Islamisation.

Then, when it became obvious that at least 20,000 people were willing to go to Brussels to protest at how Islamists constantly get their way due to our complicit politicians, Mayor Thielemans banned our march because, in not so many words, his voters might cause violence. Then he changed his mind and said “right wing” extremists would cause violence.

He even said the demo was “racist” despite SIOE’s declaration “Racism is the lowest form of stupidity! Islamophobia is the height of common sense!”

When people, outraged by this flagrant abuse of power, said that they would go to Brussels anyway the final tactic was played - the threat of terrorism.


Never before has a single demonstration caused European Mandarins to take so much notice of the European electorate, that they seek to stop it at all costs.

Nobody from the authorities has contacted any of the SIOE organisers of the Brussels demo and voiced their concern about terrorist action against the demo.

I have been assured today that thousands will be in Brussels on Tuesday 11th September.

Threats of terrorism stiffen the resolve of people who value liberty over tyranny.

PRESS RELEASE: Public debate about Olympics mega-mosque

Immediate Release: 4 September 2007 Public meeting about Olympics Mega-Mosque follows massive 10 Downing Street petition

Supporters and opponents to meet in "hard-hitting but civilised" East London debate that discredits Ken Livingstone BNP slur

For the first time supporters and opponents of the proposed Olympics mega-mosque at West Ham will meet to air their differences and debate the key issues, at a public meeting this Friday evening (7 September) at Stratford, East London.

Following the recent huge petition against the mosque which attracted over 250,000 signatures on the 10 Downing Street website, the atmosphere is expected to be electric as both sides put forward their arguments head-to-head in front of the audience.

Support for the mosque will be led by Abdul Khaliq Mian, who is a former mega-mosque project manager and spokesman and also a former parliamentary candidate (East Ham, 2005) and local council candidate (Newham 2006) for George Galloway's Respect party.

Leading for the opponents will be Councillor Alan Craig, leader of the Christian Peoples Alliance group on Newham Council.

The debate is being organised by Newham Muslim voluntary sector group Islamic Circles and is open to the public.

"I'm delighted we are to debate the mega-mosque issue face-to-face at last," said Cllr Craig, who has been the leading East London opponent of the project. "I first asked for discussions with mosque promoters Tablighi Jamaat over a year ago but they have always refused to meet.

This is the first real opportunity to do democracy, and I expect the debate to be hard-hitting but civilised." Cllr Craig also criticised the stance taken by Ken Livingstone over the mega-mosque. "This debate will also serve to publicly discredit the Mayor's offensive and unfounded slur that opposition to the mosque is by nature Islamophobic and BNP-inspired," said Alan Craig.

"It isn't. Many Muslims oppose the Tablighi Jamaat mega-mosque, and non-Islamic local opposition is rational, reasoned and based on respect for our Muslim fellow citizens. We stand against BNP hate-mongering." Of course the Mayor's unreasoned biased backing for the mega-mosque simply strengthens the cause of all opponents.

"Fortunately he has no planning powers over the Olympic zone, so he cannot directly impact the final planning decision about the mosque."

There is just one demonstration in Brussels on 11th September

There have been some rumours that different political parties and organisations have planned to hold several demonstrations in Brussels.


On the contrary, the political parties that have expressed an interest in the Stop Islamisation Of Europe have agreed with the Aims and rules of the demonstration.

This is because they have ALL recognised that the greatest threat to our way of life in Europe is Islamisation.

They have ALL agreed to put other differences aside for this one historic event on this most historic of days.

So, members of all parties and organisations will be in Brussels as groups of ordinary citizens carrying only SIOE banners and/or plain white banners and/or banners enscribed with the rallying cries:-

No Sharia Here!

Democracy not Theocracy!

Enough is Enough!

They have ALL agreed to not carry any identifying banners or symbols because we are brothers and sisters for this one day.

There is just one demonstration in Brussels on 11th September 2007 and it is called

Belgian justice brings to mind a certain novel by Kafka. Last month the mayor of Brussels banned a demonstration planned for September 11 under the slogan of "Stop the Islamization of Europe." An administrative court upheld that decision last week. So much for free speech and freedom of assembly in Europe's capital.

The organizers from Germany, Britain and Denmark had expected about 20,000 people from all over the Continent to protest what they called the "creeping" introduction of Shariah law into their societies. The rally was supposed to end with a minute of silence for the victims of the terror attacks on the US six years ago.

True, the organisers' goal of "preventing Islam becoming a dominant political force in Europe" and their claims that Islam is incompatible with democracy are provocative. But the question is not whether one agrees with the message but whether the message is within the bounds of protected speech, which it clearly is. If law-abiding citizens are not allowed to express their opinions on any given day, it causes irreparable damage to the plaintiffs' rights and Belgium's democracy.

SIOE Brussels demo in Nation.Be

Nation.Be has urged its supporters to join the demo

Nation.Be is a French speaking journal. Original French article

Dutch and French speaking folk in Belgium have joined together for the purpose of stopping Islamisation of Europe.

This is historic!

Babal Fish translation

You know without any doubt that a demonstration etaitprevue in Brussels against the Islamization of Europe on next 11 September. It goes without saying the Movement NATION supports thematic this demonstration.

In spite of the inadmissible prohibition of this gathering by the town of Brussels, the organizers of this one (association SIOE: Stop Islamisation Of Europe) maintained their watchword and seem decided well to express in all cases. NATION calls obviously its members and sympathizers to be taken part in it in the compliance with the rules laid down by the organizers (not of flags or logo of the movement in order to increase the unit step).

Many of our sympathizers require details of us. We cannot unfortunately answer it today. A new legal procedure having to be examined on September 5, it is impossible by then giving concrete details on the organization. We thus encourage you to come to visit our site as from September 6, at this same heading. You will find there more details.

Whatever the formula which will be retained, we call right now with a maximum mobilization even if it is one day in week. Symbolic system as far as the attitude more and more liberticide of the authorities make that this day will be particularly important.

No excuses: take leave, find solutions but mobilize you and mobilize around you.
If you accept that one prevents Europeans from expressing on September 11 without reacting concretely, if you do not mobilize yourselves on next 11 September; cease making pretence believe that you will still react in the future. If there is no start this 11 September, it is that there will not be more! The infos follow very soon....

Eleven september, to Brussels prohibited manifestation anti-Muslim


The eleven september is a painful fresh memory, that it succeeds however to divide for like vien interpreted. In Belgium, to Brussels, "understood them" de facto of communitarian Europe, it is controversy for the prohibition tax from the Common one, and confirmed from the Council of State, to one manifestation against "the islamizzazione of Europe". To proporla it is the international group "Stop the Islamisation of Europe" (Sioe), than in July the initiative just for the anniversary of the attacks to the Twin Towers and the Pentagon had launch.

The manifestation must have had place in front of the local center of the European Parliament, in order to ask, between the other, the block of muslim immigration (incompatible with the state of right, moreover) and to protest in a generalized manner against the "scivolamento" in the buonismo in the comparisons of one often intenzionata truth is not made to integrate.

The first altolà, in the consisting fear of crashs with community Muslim, has arrived 9 August from the mayor of Brussels Freddy Thielemans, Socialist, immediately stamped like the "Great Muftì of Belgium" from the Sioe. For irony overflow, the 11 september will be 63esimo the birthday of Thielemans, mangiapreti old style already under shooting for previous gaffes not exactly of good taste. The Council of State has then confirmed the decision taken from the first citizen, rejecting the resource introduced from the organizers.

The forehead "Stop the Islamisation of congerie Europe" sees re-united one of groups antiMuslims between which the Danish party Siad, the Dutch Sharia Here (Holland have not become much sensitive one after some serious facts of report like the homicide of the director Theo van Gogh from part of fanati and the vicissitude of Ayaan Hirsi Alì, the former forced parliamentarian to us to try shelter and political side in the USA) and the Germans of Pax Europe. The support received from members of the skillful extreme fiamminga, historically strongly, of sure has not giovato to the cause of the manifestation.

The Alloy North has protests to you through its capodelegazione, europarlamentare Mario Borghezio, for which "the fundamental rights of the European Union come viola you". And the rifuto to authorize the manifestation, in a Country like the crawling Belgium in preda to the most serious political crisis of its history marked from hatred between fiamminghi and Walloons, it comes read from more parts not like one will to repudiate xenofobia of whichever sign and tendency, but like a sign of extreme weakness. The extremists of the two parts are use.
