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

European's leaders and politicians are jokes to Islam. They can be bought either by TAKIYA, oils, money, women or propagandas. If europe under islamist control, there will be no freedom at last. How naive you people of europe!
