Vlaams Belang carries out anti-mosque protest in Sint-Janswijk

About 250 protesters participated in an anti-mosque protest organized by Vlaams Belang in Sint-Janswijk. The right wing political party protested against the recognition of the Attakwa mosque in the neighborhood.

While the protest was mostly without incident, one person was arrested after trying to throw a jar of white paint on Vlaams Belang leader Filip Dewinter; the politician, who recently introduced his new book “Inshallah,” was not hurt. Dewinter’s book is a plea against what he calls the Islamization of Flanders.
