Belgium: 'Israel's Apartheid Wall' featured at the Grand-Place in Brussels over Xmas

A government-funded Belgian NGO (Association Belgo-Palestinienne Wallonie-Bruxelles) headed by a prominent Socialist Party member Pierre Galand staged an anti-Israël event in one of the most remarkable landmarks in Belgium and Europe, the Brussels Grand-Place, during the Christmas period.  A mock wall entitled "Israel's Apartheid Wall in Palestine" was erected in front of the nativity scene.

For many years Pierre Galand has led a uniquely vicious anti-Israel campaign, even by European standards, with the approval of the francophone Socialist Party and the Free University of Brussels. Mainly for political gain - there are 300,000 Muslims in Brussels alone - and many harbour anti-Israel and antisemitic sentiments - and only 20,000 Jews. More and more Muslims keep coming and more and more Jews keep leaving (about 500 Jews left Belgium in 2014 out of a total population estimated at 40,000).
