Brussels officials ban Wilders from organizing anti-Islam event

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Geert Wilders, the head of the Dutch far-right Party for Freedom (PVV), canceled a visit to Molenbeek in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday after local officials banned him from organizing an event he had called “a safari of Islam.”

Brussels Mayor Philippe Close and Françoise Schepmans, the mayor of Molenbeek, issued an order forbidding Flemish far-right groups and the Dutch far-right leader from visiting the Brussels neighborhood, home to many of those behind the Paris and Brussels terrorist attacks.

"We do not want Mr. Wilders to export his message of racist hatred on the territory of Brussels,” Close said Thursday.

Speaking at a press conference Friday with Flemish nationalist Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest) party member Filip Dewinter, Wilders said he would appeal against the ban, saying he "finds it unacceptable that parts of our cities are not accessible to parliamentarians.”
