  2. Haim Kohen says:

    ASSAD is Right. We must help aganst the Jihadist and extrémistes.

  3. Well, France, is that guillotine still in working order? Put him face up, so he can see it coming.

  4. I meant Brussels, not France. It's late already, so I made a mistake. If they don't have a guillotine, a firing squad will do, with no blindfold.

  5. Murray Levine says:

    Unfortunately: Capital punishment in Belgium was formally abolished on August 1, 1996 for all crimes, in both peacetime and wartime. The last execution for crimes committed in peacetime took place in July 1863, when in Ypres a farmer was executed for murder. The last execution for an ordinary crime took place on 26 March 1918 at Veurne Prison when Emile Ferfaille, a military officer found guilty of killing his pregnant girlfriend, was guillotined. This was the first execution to be carried out since 1863. The guillotine that was used had to be imported from France.

    Between November 1944 and August 1950 around 242 people were executed by firing squad for crimes committed during the Second World War. 241 of them had been convicted as collaborators. A total of 2940 persons were sentenced to death in this period, but only 242 executions were carried out. The last person ever to be executed in Belgium was on 8 August 1950 the German war criminal Philipp Schmitt, the camp commander of the concentration camp Fort Breendonk. Although the Belgian Penal Code stipulated that the death penalty had to be carried out by decapitation, because the 242 persons executed following the Second World War were tried by a military court they were executed by firing squad.

  6. What do you mean “believed”?

  7. The Muslims are savages. When will the world realize this?

  8. Robert Davis says:

    arabs are savages,ignorant and idiots all right but this is not so important as OUR own mistakes. Israel's destiny fortunately is not in the hands of savages,obamama included so that what these people do is not the source of our problems but what Israel's politicians do. If Israel's politicians had expelled arabs long ago these problems would NOT EXIST. If they expel arabs NOW this problems will NOT exist in future.But if that coward or corrupt or stupid PM netanyahou keeps refusing to make a NATIONAL POLICY ie a…pro Israel policy instead of a pro obamama,pro arab pro idiots policy,these ,problems will continue for ever. Israel's real problem is not that non entity mehdi or ali or mehmet but netanyahou

  9. Robert Davis says:

    L.Goldman : france does not have a guillotine since 20 years but even if it had it could not cut the heads of all the arabs who want to kill jews thinking they will…force Israel give its territory to arabs! The only person who can do it is that fool netanyahou who is elected by Jews but works for arabs and obamallah! He simply does not understand that if arabs arabs are expelled no one could HOPE to destroy Israel or give its land to arabs and pressures of all kinds included violence would stop!

  10. Anonymous says:

    Leave it to Israel to try and find a way of exchanging this killer, as they have done so many times before. Even the USA got into the act of exchanging a soldier for 5 terrorists residing at Guantanamo which is against US Law. Nothing will happen to this terrorist in Belgium.

  11. Noel Eliscu says:

    Murray Levine thank you for the education I am more prone to punish by castration

  12. Murray Levine says:

    Noel Eliscu But try and find anything there! :)

  13. Until you walk in the shoes of the family who has waited and prayed for the release of a prisoner in one of these vile countries, you have no ground on which to stand here.

  14. When a Muslim wants to go "home" after immigrating to another country, they should be told to go ahead… and stay there. Immigrants in this day do not go to another country to assimilate and be good citizens. They go to run away from the dangers in their home country and to find comfort for themselves, but their loyalty is always to the home country.

    Dual citizenship with countries that do not share the core values of the country to which one has immigrated should be denied. One cannot serve two masters, and one cannot give absolute loyalty to two countries when one of them seeks the destruction of the other.

  15. Obaid Karki says:

    There are 1.2M Belgian Muslims who denied the right for a mosque in Sablon and there [is] petty 30,000 Belgian Jews who got a museum for shlichut.
    Called whatever you call it.
    Anti Semitism, anti Israelis, anti Zionists.
    People got fed up from being ed at daylight.
    Muslims must present Jews flowers or leave Belgium.
    Guess what? Midget French President Francois Hollande dropped everything to go and chew the microphone to condemn museum shootout. The dumbass told millions of French Muslim voters: if they ditch Sarkozy and elect him he will let ‘em beat their women and to not get ed in Mali and now in Brussels.

  16. Ina Ina says:

    he should get good punishment now

  17. It will get a Lot worse in Europe as long as Sharia is present. thank you.
