Less than a month to parliamentary elections:
On Wednesday Filip Dewinter (Vlaams Belang) intends to visit the Turnhoutsebaan street in Borgerhout to hang up street signs saying "No Jihad Street". The local store association reacted with shock. "Pure provocation and without respect for every Borgerhout resident and for anybody who works for years to upkeep this shopping street," says president Alain Herremans.
The sign didn't stay up for long. It was, of course, a provocation. But what was it provoking? It wasn't a sign saying "No Muslim Street", just an anti-Jihad sign.

Borgerhout is, of course, part of Antwerp, not of Brussels. I had Brussels on my mind when I posted this.. :-)
