AND REMEMBER THAT BELGIUM IS THE MODEL ON WHICH THE EU IS BUILT!
Missing Peace forwards the following article (google trans) that provides some rather discouraging findings in a research that explored the thinking of youths of different demographic groups in Belgium. Looks like another stake driven into the heart of the multicultural experiment. KGS
“Worrying is that half of Muslim students can be described as anti-Semitic, which is still very high. Worse, the anti-Jewish feelings have nothing to do with a low educational or social disadvantage, as is the case with racist natives . It is theologically inspired anti-Semitism, and there is a direct link between Muslim and anti-Semitic feelings cherish. Catholics are also more negative towards Jews, but the feelings are not as strong. “
NOTE: Multiculturalism is the policy of societal suicide, it won’t work, it can’t work and those who say it does work, are delusional.
Missing Peace adds: Here is the approval rate of 4 statements about Jewish people put to respondents:
– ‘Jews want to dominate everything’ (31.4% agree)
– ‘Most Jews think they are better than other people’ (29.9%)
– ‘When you do business with Jews, you have to be extra alert’ (28.6%)
– ‘Jews agitate for war and blame others’ (28.4%)
‘Jong in Brussel,’ is a study done by Jeugdonderzoekplatform (Youth Research Platform) in cooperation with the universities of Ghent, Leuven and the Dutch-speaking VUB. It polled 2,837 students in in 32 Dutch-speaking high schools in Brussels.
Brussels youth often anti-Semitic
DEMORGEN.BE Antisemitism is not a dirty word for about half of young Muslims in Brussels, and with a low educational level has little to do. Also shows “Young in Brussels” that multiculturalism in the young minds is not a fact. If push comes to shove, no apparent fan of the Bulgarians or Roma, and folds back on the young love their community.
“Belgians, Moroccans, Turks and Southern Europeans, the youth of the four largest ethnic groups in Brussels all care for one’s own people first ‘principle,” says sociologist Jessie Siongers (VUB), who discovered in her research for “Young in Brussels,” our capital is characterized by diversity, but that something does not automatically result in a cosmopolitan people.
The various groups do not live together, but side by side. The young people remain strongly committed to their own culture, especially when it comes to friendly relations, or lake, and this applies to young people of all origins.
Siongers: “All young people look to join communities with whom she has a geographic or cultural affinity feel, and they are reinforced focus on culture. Especially between Belgians and Moroccans, the two dominant groups, the gap depth. And Turkish young people we call closed, very focused on themselves. And although the Brussels school mixed and diverse, it translates not in close relationships or interest in the other. “
Disconcerting is that the young have an ethnic hierarchy in this policy. “All groups will prefer relationships with Northern Europeans, Southern Europeans followed in second place,” explains Siongers out. “At the same time the young are the most averse Bulgarians, Kurds and Roma Gypsies. The willingness to deal with them is very small.”
For clarity, research in Flanders already yielded similar results. Unfamiliarity scares, this reasoning goes according Siongers or partly. “Bulgarians or Roma Gypsies are novices, minority groups barely known. What the young are guided by stereotypes and the images they receive from the media weigh heavily. And that is rarely positive in tone. The language barrier plays a role. Belgians and Moroccans have at least have French as a common language. “
“Moroccan and Turkish youngsters also seem to be slightly negative attitude towards other communities, among them the social distance is greatest. And though they themselves are victims of discrimination in each group see the need to emphasize their own identity, to emphasize the distinction. This tendency survives even stronger among those who themselves belong to a minority. They know well enough that they reached the Belgian population is not too much reputation, but do not want to dangle at the bottom of the ladder. “
Another fault line in the survey shows, it’s philosophical, especially among Muslim youth. They are the least likely closer to the other communities.
That the social gap between young people from different ethnic backgrounds is so large, the researchers somewhat by surprise. But concern is totally about anti-Semitism that seems to thrive luxuriantly in the heads of Brussels’ youth. “For indigenous students said about 10 percent agreeing with the anti-Semitic statements that we laid for them. These are normal figures in Flanders is no different when investigating racism,” said sociologist Mark Elchardus VUB. “Worrying is that half of Muslim students can be described as anti-Semitic, which is still very high. Worse, the anti-Jewish feelings have nothing to do with a low educational or social disadvantage, as is the case with racist natives . It is theologically inspired anti-Semitism, and there is a direct link between Muslim and anti-Semitic feelings cherish. Catholics are also more negative towards Jews, but the feelings are not as strong. “
Chances are likely that anti-Semitism is facilitated by the international context, particularly the conflict between Palestine and Israel. But Elchardus will not settle with those explanations. “The impact of the international context is difficult to obtain, and it seems doubtful that only an explanation should be sought. As if we are anti-Islamic when we in the Middle East dictators at work?”
The negative feelings towards Jews in the Muslim students seem almost ingrained, making it harder to control them. “In the cross-curricular themes is certain that schools should focus on tolerance. I think this theme in schools with a high concentration of Muslims even more attention,” says Elchardus.
Any silver lining? Tolerance and contact between different ethnic groups are still possible, just not as expected. “We went from the idea that young people who have contact with different groups, each more nuanced review,” said Siongers. “So we expected that to school in a very mixed school conducive would be the attitude of pupils towards each other. That is not the case. Because not the school context, but the neighborhood where they grew up shows the most important. A district with a balanced and viable division between immigrants and natives appears to be the best guarantee to be tolerant to live together. “
