Belgium: Bar anti-Semitic Muslim clergyman, watchdog urges

A Belgian watchdog on anti-Semitism asked the government to block a Kuwaiti preacher who called
for Jews to be eradicated from attending an Islamic conference in Brussels.

Tarek al-Swaidan, a leader of Kuwait’s branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, is expected to attend the Muslim Forum of Brussels on Nov. 7, the Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, or LBCA, said in a statement Wednesday.

The group motioned the Belgian Foreign Ministry to block his entrance into the country.

“An open anti-Semite, he declared only last July that the State of Israel must be destroyed along with all the Jews,” the LBCA statement said.
