The following article concerns two Palestinain brothers in Antwerp who have been harassing Jews on the street. It includes a video with an audio entirely in Arabic, so it has not been subtitled.
Gary Fouse, who translated the text, includes this explanatory note:
Michael Freilich is a member of the conservative New Flemish Alliance Party (N-VA) and the former editor of Joods Actueel, a Flemish-language Jewish news outlet in Belgium.
The translated article from Joods Actueel:
Video of Palestinian skaters harassing Jews — Millions of views
In YouTube videos we see Amjad and Adham Saleh, twin brothers from Gaza, literally making the streets and sidewalks of the Jewish neighborhood of Antwerp unsafe. They ride with a Palestinian flag at high speed past people and shout, “Free Palestine”. They harass Jewish passersby, do not obey traffic rules, and are a downright danger to their fellow citizens. The videos have been viewed more than two million times.
N-VA Member of Parliament Michael Freilich condemns the behavior and warns against the importation of the Middle East conflict onto our streets. “These twin brothers are from Gaza and fled five years ago to Belgium. They were granted asylum here, housing, and a job. So it is especially regrettable they harass people, and they should know better. Jews in Antwerp are not Israeli citizens, but rather Flemish.”
The FJO (Forum of Jewish Organizations in Belgium) lodged a complaint with the UNIA and asked that the case be investigated. According to lawyers, there are several crimes, such as offenses against traffic rules, and harassment, with the aggravating circumstance that Jews were specifically targeted (anti-Semitism). And this could be described as an unauthorized demonstration. Finally, the videos concerned may raise questions about the assimilation of refugees.
Finally, Freilich extends his hand to the brothers. “It would be nice if they made a video about and with the Jewish community instead of inciting against them. Surely, given the enormous number of followers they have reached with their videos. That would be a positive message for society.”
