Our polyglot correspondent Hermes sends along a brief translation from a Belgian news site, accompanied by this note:
I was reading an article in French at a Belgian online magazine, a short article dealing with child trafficking and pornography in Belgium, and I stumbled upon a very interesting comment made by a reader, a comment regarding Islam and freedom of expression in the Belgian MSM.
This issue is now reaching paranoid levels. But nevertheless, it seems that it was only the persistent behavior of the commenter that prompted editors to allow this comment to be published.

Pornography, begging and small-scale crime: children are exploited in Belgium

[Expletive], censored again.
I have just asked after having taken a look at the photo whether begging is allowed in the Koran, for as far as I know the richest ones give to the poorest ones, so people with headscarves should not be begging the way we see them in masses… what was wrong in what I said? It is enough to pronounce the word “Arab”, “Koran”, “Muslim”, and one gets banned. What kind of magazine is this?
Last November a group of culturally enriched “youths” on a bus in Copenhagen set upon an American student of Chinese descent and beat him up. The incident was caught on a surveillance camera, and Danish police are still looking for the perpetrators, who are said to be “of other ethnic origin”.
Many thanks to Steen for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for subtitling this news video from Danish TV:
Our Norwegian correspondent The Observer has translated an article from today’s Dagbladet about the disappearance of a “Norwegian” Salafist in Pakistan. Arfan Bhatti’s antics in his adopted home have been featured in this space before, but now Mr. Bhatti has gone missing during an, ahem, field trip to the heartland of jihad.
The Observer sends this introductory note:
The ‘Norwegian’ mujahid Arfan Bhatti is apparently missing in action somewhere in the mountainous border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
His comrade in Norway, the bearded monkey Ubaydullah Hussain, who apparently is too much of a coward to take part in the Jihad against the infidels, is demanding that the Norwegian authorities do everything in their power to put pressure on Pakistan to start looking for this brave lion of Allah.
I don’t think anything will come of it. As a matter of fact I think that Ubaydullah Hussain and the rest of the bearded monkeys of the Prophet’s Ummah are going to be terribly disappointed.
Don’t they know that the Jihad giveth and the Jihad taketh away?
The translated article:
The Prophet’s Ummah: Demands that Norway put pressure on Pakistan to find Bhatti
Islamist has disappeared
(Dagbladet): — We demand that the Norwegian authorities do everything in their power to convince the Pakistani government to prioritize this case as it involves a missing Norwegian citizen, says Ubaydullah Hussain to Dagbladet.
Hussain, the leader of the Norwegian Islamist group the Prophet’s Ummah, is concerned that one of the organization’s most prominent members, Arfan Bhatti (35), has gone missing abroad.
Bhatti has been away from Norway for a long time, and is most likely somewhere on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan — a Taliban stronghold — where he has been photographed carrying weapons.
It was Bhatti’s family that notified the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD) yesterday through Bhatti’s lawyer John Christian Elden, after the 35-year-old hadn’t been heard from since January 7.
Our Dutch reader sends another update about the gang of eight attackers who brutally beat a pedestrian in Eindhoven. Seven of the eight have been identified and named on the Geenstijl website:
A poster on Geenstijl has posted an image of the attackers prior/during the attack with names attached. It shows who did what if you combine it with the video.
The names of the attackers seem mostly Dutch, save the Bouzi. The unidentified attacker looks like an immigrant from Morocco.
Nevertheless, these *******s deserve to be beaten into a bloody pulp.
The video he refers to may be viewed here.
The following enricher-on-enricher violence took place in the Belgian town of Genk, pitting Kurdish youths against their Turkish counterparts. Notice how well-integrated the Turkish kids are: they consider the Turkish flag to be “our pride, our honor, and our blood.”
Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from 7 sur 7:
Two students attacked in Genk amidst community tensions
Two final-year Turkish students from the technical institute of Sint-Lodewijk in Genk (Belgium) were taken to hospital on Monday after receiving knife injuries during a brawl, the brother of one of the injured students reported. The public prosecutor’s office of Tongres announced that two suspects had been arrested, one of them 18 years old.
The facts are linked to a tense mood between the Turkish and Kurd communities in Genk after a Kurd cultural center was burned down last Wednesday. “My brother is in stable condition,” Osman, the brother of one of the victims says. “He was stabbed in his right shoulder blade. His mate was more seriously injured; he has wounds in his lower back. They were attacked from behind,” he explained.
A gang of immigrants, who appeared to be Arabs, were roaming the streets of Eindhoven in the Netherlands looking for people to beat up. They came upon a Dutch man and proceed to beat him viciously.
A video of the incident was leaked and uploaded to the internet, and a massive backlash ensued on the social media.
Now the police have ordered the video removed from all news sites, and all required that all the faces of the perpetrators be blurred. Two of the youths (who are from Belgium) are said to have given themselves up to the police.
Many thanks to SimonXML for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.
This footage is very brutal. If you are sensitive to images of violence, you may want to skip this video:
So much cultural enrichment, so little time…
I’ve been appending links to previous cultural enrichment articles every time I post a new one, but the list has grown too long and unwieldy to include at the end of each post.
This post will function as the permanent archive of cultural enrichment links from now on. I’ll update it with new links when appropriate.
The complete list of links is below the jump.
