Main Lesson from Tax Reform in Belgium? It’s Impossible to Have a Good Tax System and a Big Government

If nothing else, Belgian politicians deserve credit for perseverance. One year ago, the nation was considering a “tax shift” that would reduce taxes on labor and increase taxes on consumption. I pointed out that this didn’t make much sense since it wouldn’t alter the wedge between pre-tax income and post-tax consumption. In other words, the […]

Great Moments in Foreign Government

It would be impossible to pick the most hare-brained government policy. We have all sorts of bizarre examples from the United States. And we have equally “impressive” examples from other nations. And today, we’re going to augment our collection of bone-headed policies from elsewhere in the world. We’ll start with the United Kingdom, which already […]

Provide for the Common Defense

I want to pick up on some of Jess’ points which she made so well, yesterday. She’s right, very few of the refugees had much of anything to do with causing the problems in Middle East. But there is also this, the highest duty of our secular governments, is to ‘provide for the common defense’. […]

BRUSSELS ATTACKS: SUPPRESSING THE FACTS AND MUZZLING THE TRUTH

Well, we’re going to let the real world in here, for a bit. I seem to think I should mention a bit about the terrorist attack in Brussels. It’s a terrible tragedy, and the victims and their families have my sympathy. But no one should really be surprised. Weakness always invites attack. That’s one of […]

In One Phrase, Everything that You Need to Know about the Failure of Big Government

I realize it’s presumptuous, but I periodically make grandiose claims that a single column will tell readers “everything” they need to know about a topic. I’ve used that tactic when writing about tax loopholes, entitlements, fiscal policy, bureaucracy (twice), tax evasion, France, Greece, corporate inversions, and economic policy. Sometimes I even claim a single image, […]

Multicultural Appeasement In Cologne

There’s really not all that much to add to this, from Daniel Hannan, MEP. I suppose I could say that I’ve said all this as well, I have, and so have others. But until we act on it, it doesn’t really matter. What was your reaction when you heard that there had been a series […]

To Understand France’s Jihadis, Look At Where They Came From

This, from Dan Hannan, is very interesting, I think. I haven’t much to add, particularly since I don’t really know much about continental Europe. So, I’ll let him tell it. […] I think it has to do with the way that patriotism has been derided and traduced by Europe’s intellectual elites. If you want newcomers […]

This Column Is Exactly What ISIS Wants

This insane silliness is beeing heard all over the formerly free world. Because when we argue for the annihilation of terrorists, the terrorists win.

Rearranging the Deck Chairs Isn’t the Solution for Belgium’s Titanic Tax System

It’s time for a lesson in tax economics. Though hopefully today’s topic won’t be as dry and boring as my missives on more technical issues like depreciation and worldwide taxation. That’s because we’re going to talk about the taxation of workers, which is something closer to home for most of us. And our lesson comes […]

Beyond Breaking California Up into Six States: A Federalist Alternative

In any epoch and in any culture, the human mind displays a marked tendency to accept the status quo as the default—being so ensconced in fact that efforts at real change almost inevitably face formidable road-blocks. In this essay, I analyze the 2014 failed ballot-petition that would have put the proposal of breaking California into six separate states to Californians. I contend that the proponents could alternatively have taken up a more optimal alternative—one much easier to put into effect. Interestingly, that idea comes from the E.U. rather than the U.S.

Never Again? ‘Death to the Jews!’ rings out in legal demonstration in The Hague


Soon the descriptive phrase ‘Never Again’ used all to often in the title of articles here, will lose all meaning and relevance as attacks on Jews becomes all the more commonplace and accepted!

This is particularly true in Europe where the memory of Hitler, Nazis and the Holocaust seems to be fading fast!

The most recent example noted at TPC came on July 24th when a sign was hung in the window of a Belgian cafe that loosely translated meant that dogs are allowed inside, Jew are not (Never Again? Dogs but not Jews allowed at Belgian cafe!)!

Now this story, by way of Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, of an ISIS demonstration in The Hague sanctioned by the Dutch government where the chant of ‘Death to the Jews’ rang out across the square.

The dark clouds of hate and anti-Semitism are once again forming over Europe with the tacit, if not overt, approval of Barack Obama who has chosen the path of legitimizing Hamas while demonizing and marginalizing Israel.

Islamic State Stages Victory Rally in Europe: The Flag of Jihad Flies Over the Hague

Proving yet again what I have been saying for months, years — Europe once again is embracing madness and evil as its central unifying characteristic – only this time it’s under “Palestinianism,” not Nazism.

The Islamic State is holding rallies in Europe. No counter protest. No media outrage. No arrests. How is it even legal for an Islamic terrorist organization like the Islamic State to openly rally on the streets of a European city while good, decent men like Geert Wilders or Lars Hedegaard are brought up charges of racism and hate speech for opposing jihad?

Algemeiner: Jewish human rights group The Simon Wiesenthal Center on Friday called on Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to rescind approval for a rally in support of ISIS in the Hague, after protesters, yelling in Arabic and Dutch, proclaimed that “dirty Jews from the sewers” should be killed.

In a fiery letter to Rutte, Dr. Shimon Samuels, SWC Director for International Relations, said similar calls of violence were reported at a rally on July 4, and show that rather than even expressing support for Hamas militants in Gaza, the true intention of the rallies have been to call for the death of Jews.

“Yesterday, the call in Arabic and Dutch was for ‘dirty Jews from the sewers to be killed,’” Samuels said. “This rally had little to do with Gaza solidarity. It was unambiguously targeted against Jews, but also according to the Dutch press sought to lynch journalists, who were pulled to safety by the police, otherwise serving as silent spectators.”

He said that what was “most disturbing” was that, while press reports and photos from the rally show the mass of masked demonstrators calling for violence, the official Public Prosecutor’s press release stated “there were only 40 to 50 people present,” that “the police were present with an Arabic speaking police officer” and “the slogans overheard by this officer were not considered as crossing boundaries. Hence no arrest was made.”

Samuels told the Dutch prime minister, “The YouTube clip clearly shows many more than 50 participants and the slogans at the end of the clip were repeated and quite evident, ‘Maut al-Yahud’ (Death to the Jews), ‘Khaybar, Khaybar’ (The genocide of the Jews of Khaybar) and ‘Those who do not jump are Jews’ (All the Muslims present jumped).”

“Our Center expects you to launch an immediate inquiry into the cover-up by this police officer who betrayed his duty to faithfully translate all slogans – most of which were menacing Jews,” Samuels said, urging the Netherlands “to follow the example of the United Kingdom in banning ISIS and to forbid any further demonstrations in Holland that call for the murder of Jews or any other ‘riff-raff’.”

Samuels’s letter noted that Adberazak Khoulani, Islamic Dutch Unity Party leader, is publicly endorsing ISIS in Iraq, proclaiming ‘Long live ISIS… and Insha’Allah on to Baghdad to fight the riff-raff there… sometimes violence is necessary?’”

Never Again? Dogs but not Jews allowed at Belgian cafe!

That was then, below is now!

1939? No 2014 in Europe as anti-Semitism no longer bubbles below the surface but out in the open for all to see!

The existence of anti-Semitic hate has been documented here in the past such as in the article ‘Hate in New York State!

Well here is another more current example of a serious issue for Jews that many Jews choose to pretend doesn’t actually exist!

Dogs welcome but Jews are not!

Back to the Future?

All over the world, displays of anti-Semitism and hatred against Jews continue to segregate them from the community, from pro-Palestinians in France attempting to attack suburban synagogues, to a swastika being spray painted on a Thornhill, Ontario bus stop.

In Belgium, where just a few months ago in Brussels a gunman went on a shooting spree at a Jewish museum killing four, another illicit demonstration of hatred has taken place, as a café hung up a sign that read “No Jews Allowed.”

JTA reports that a Belgian watchdog, the Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, or LBCA, has filed a complaint to the mayor after discovering the sign at the Saint-Nicolas café, located in a suburb just east of Liege, and to bring those parties responsible to justice.

The suspects reportedly hung a sign written in Turkish and French that reads “Dogs are allowed in this establishment but Jews are not under any circumstances.”

The French text, in this scenario, replaces the words “Jews” with “Zionists,” yet another indication of the blurred line between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.

After filing the complaint, the major sent police to investigate at the cafe, who have since removed the sign and confirmed the LBCA report. The window display also included a Palestinian flag, an Israeli flag crossed out with a red “X” sign, and a kaffieh, or Palestinian shawl, draped around it.

The incident comes only a day after three European Foreign Affairs ministers condemned the wave of anti-Semitism that’s been taking place across Europe as Israel’s war against Hamas terrorists rages on. While in the West we’ve been affected mostly on social media (save for some unfortunate instances), for European Jews it’s been a truly frightening ordeal. (Source)

4 Murdered In Attack On Jewish Museum, Jews attacked outside Paris Synagogue

Just another day in Europe…

An Israeli couple, a French woman and a young Belgian man were murdered in a shooting attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Belgium on Saturday by an unidentified gunman who burst into the building with an automatic or semi-automatic rifle.

As you can see in the video, released by the Belgian authorities, the killer carried out his attack in a deliberate and seemingly well-planned manner.

Belgium has a Jewish community of about 40,000, half of whom live in Brussels. Like Paris and other European cities, Brussels has a large and restive Muslim population of about 300,000, over 25% of the city’s population and just under half of Belgium’s estimated 650,000 Muslim population. The districts of Brussels that have large Muslim populations have essentially become no-go areas like many banlieus in France with a considerable increase in crime, including an average of around 250 gang rapes a year since 2007. As the Muslim population has grown, there’s been a large increase in the number of mosques and minarets, veiled women in public, and more Islamist organizations. Two seats on the Brussels City Council in two heavily Muslim neighborhoods of Brussels, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Anderlechtare, are held by Lhoucine Aït Jeddig and Redouane Ahrouch, both from the fledgling Islam Party, which seeks to impose sharia law on Belgium. In Antwerp, there is already a sharia court founded by the Islamist group Sharia4Belgium. Which is legally allowed to supersede secular Belgian law, on marriage, divorce, and child support issues.

The Belgian government issued the usual condemnations and has increased security for Jewish institutions in the country. This is not the first anti-semitic incident in Belgium, and given the current increase in the Muslim population, it will undoubtedly not be the last.

Just a few hours after the attack in Brussels, two Jewish men, brothers in their 20’s were brutally beaten outside Chaare Tsion Synagogue in suburban Paris on Saturday night, probably after attending the Mincha prayer service. They were followed from the synagogue and beaten with metal pipes by a gang which then fled on bicycles and on foot. This sort of thing is becoming increasingly common in France, and is the reason behind a spike in the immigration of French Jews to Israel.

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même…….
