Election 2007: A Call for Muslim Boycott of Elections

A French document, circulated around Brussels (Schaerbeek, Saint-Josse,…) and on the internet, has declared the upcoming legislative elections of June 10 “illegal”, referring to the Koran and to a fatwa declared by a British mosque. It also called for a boycott. The twelve-page document titled, “Participation in the Elections,” has since circulated in the Arab-Muslim community in the Brussels region.
