Filip Dewinter has congratulated the Swiss people on the minaret ban: “Just like William Tell, the Swiss symbolise the resistance of many European people against a foreign invasion. Islam, with its minarets and mosques, does not belong in Europe.”
Vlaams Belang introduces bill into Parliament to impose restraints on the proliferation of mosques and minarets.
In a referendum that was held on the initiative of the right-wing conservative party UDC, a majority of the Swiss people has voted in favor of a minaret ban. Filip Dewinter: “Once again, common sense has prevailed over political correctness. Despite decades of multicultural indoctrination, the resistance of the Swiss – and that of other people – has not yet been broken.” Filip Dewinter has congratulated the Swiss on their decision: “The introduction of a minaret ban is a sign of political courage and common sense. The Swiss symbolise European resistance against Islam. The Swiss are like William Tell, who resisted against a foreign rule and fought to defend Switzerland. Islam does indeed not belong in Europe. Contrary to the traditional political parties, that embrace Islam and collaborate with it, a majority of the European people is convinced that we have to take strong measures against the rise of Islam in Europe.”
Filip Dewinter has introduced a bill into the Flemish Parliament regarding the current law on environmental planning. Filip Dewinter wants the existing law to be adapted so that the government will be able to refuse the construction of “buildings that damage the cultural character of the environment”. This way, mosques and minarets can be refused a construction permit, because their Moresque or Eastern architecture is at odds with the environment. With this measure, Vlaams Belang wants to send a clear signal to the Muslims that they have to adapt to our way of life, not the other way around. The proliferation of mosques and minarets in Flanders needs to be stopped, since they more than often symbolise the islamisation of a certain town or neighbourhood.
