Our Flemish correspondent VH sends another roundup of the latest news on Muslim riots and terror plots in Belgium and the Netherlands:
On New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam Slotervaart — where the Jihad Riots recently took place — Moroccans put the police station under siege, smashed windows, and set fire to three Police cars and two others.
When the Mobile Unit (Mobiele Eeenheid) of the police appeared to help release their colleagues, the Moroccans disappeared in the neighborhood. Again, as during the Jihad Riots, no one got chased, caught, or arrested.
Elsewhere in Amsterdam two ambulances on their way to an emergency were blocked — really nasty; that’s been happening more often last couple of years. One had a narrow escape and another got its windows smashed. They both returned; what happened to the emergency situation they where heading for is unclear.
In the neighborhoods of Leiden and the Hague there have been similar events. During riots in those places eight police officers were wounded, dozens of cars torched, and 188 people were arrested.
In Vlaardingen — part of Eastern Rotterdam — the traditional Christmas tree burning is also not what it used to be and blasted the windows out of eighty houses (video link).
Update on the terror alerts

The three Muslims who were arrested by heavily armed teams of the Special Intervention Service on December 31 in Rotterdam on terrorism charges were ready to execute a bloodbath on the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam that same evening.
A true disaster and a massacre of immense proportions has been prevented by the last-minute arrests. That evening, about 15,000 people were expected to crowd together on and around the Erasmus bridge (also called “The Swan”, a contemporary landmark of Rotterdam) for the New Year’s Eve party. A mass of people that would be almost impossible to secure.
As a precautionary measure, that evening no one was allowed on the bridge.
The two Moroccans both have a dual nationality (Moroccan and Dutch); the Sudanese is illegally in the Netherlands.
It is not clear yet if there’s a connection between these terrorists and the fourteen who were arrested (and have already been released) in Belgium. The Belgian suspects were also planning a bloodbath on New Years eve.
