Belgian Jewish Leader Branded 'Enemy of Islam'
Belgian Health Minister Laurette Onkelinx has complained to police about a pamphlet naming a Jewish member of her party an "enemy of Islam.” The Turkish-language pamphlet called Yves Goldstein, an associate of Onkelinx and fellow member of the Socialist Party, "an active Zionist and an enemy of Islam,” Onkelinx said at a news conference on Oct. 8.
"It is a call to Jew-hatred, much like the anti-Muslim calls we hear too often,” she added. "It is unacceptable and must stop immediately.” Goldstein, a candidate for the Socialist Party at Schaarbeek near Brussels, was also present at the meeting with journalists.
Onkelinx also filed a complaint with the Center for Equal Opportunity, a Belgian NGO.
