Belgian police arrest protesters, stand off with youths


#1

Belgian police made a series of arrests of right-wing and anti-racist protesters in Brussels on Saturday, and riot squads engaged in a tense confrontation with local youths in the district of Molenbeek.

The standoff grew out of plans by a far-right group to hold a demonstration in Molenbeek, a largely Muslim neighborhood where a number of the militants who staged attacks in Paris had been based. An anti-racist group had called for a counter-demonstration. reuters.com/article/us-belgium-blast-protests-idUSKCN0WZ0MJ

                                  RT is claiming over 100 were arrested.

Merkel allowed people to come in without being screened.

What do you expect, with Merkel’s open border policies?


#9

She didn’t actually. It was the Greeks who were found not to have conducted proper checks. But this enclave of Brussels was a problem well before last year’s migration.

That she invited them to come to Germany is not in doubt. But there was a screening process that was not operationalised by the Greeks. They didn’t arrive in Germany by plane for pities sake!
