Paul Belien at The Brussels Journal has lately been given some hard time by lefties and multiculturalists. While I don't agree with Belien's utterly laughable religious rhetoric he still gets the point: "Europeans have foolishly replaced God by the State as the one on whom they rely to take care of all their needs from cradle to grave."

The case with Belien and The Brussels Journal is concerning. There was a racist shooting spree in Antwerp about a week ago where a skinhead killed two people and wounded one. Two of the victims were colored. Belien and The Brussels Journal were targeted: "Belgian journalists, lawyers and politicians (including Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt), say that I am responsible for creating the atmosphere of hatred that led to the massacre. Some people even demand that I be prosecuted."
How will things turn out this time? The Muhammad Cartoon controversy already hinted that Europe is willing to trade freedom of speech for multiculturalism and so-called tolerance. Anti-immigration individuals = bad, radical imams = tolerable.

Belien is hardly the only one who thinks that Europe is in deep trouble. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is leaving the continent to move to the United States to work for a Washington-based conservative think tank, The American Enterprise Institute. Talking about brain drain...

Yeah I'm a daily reader of Brussels Journal and have chatted with Paul over e-mail in the past. I'll be watching this closely.
