Mayor Bart De Wever of Antwerp has been threatened with death if he does not convert to Islam. His response? To hire a bodyguard.
But he’s the mayor, for crying out loud! You’d think he could send an armed police battalion to roust all the usual suspects out of certain culturally enriched neighborhoods. He could then make sure that they fully understood their status in his city, and keep them on their best behavior — or else.
But this is Europe we’re talking about, and that’s not how they do things in Modern Multicultural Belgium…
There’s more at Vlad’s place.

|00:20||that he is the object of renewed death threats.|
|00:24||On VTM, the mayor of Antwerp|
|00:28||and President of N-VA confirmed that he was under close protection.|
|00:32||I read in a police report that someone|
|00:36||had posted a threatening letter to ‘Handschoenmarkt’ in Antwerp.|
|00:40||The letter stated in French that I would be executed if|
|00:44||I did not convert to Islam. I will not do this, and we will assess|
|00:48||the gravity of the facts. The Coordination Unit for Threats Analysis|
|00:52||is screening the level of the threat; in my case|
|00:56||I benefit of a close personal protection. This is not one’s choice,|
|01:00||one just has to live with it.
