If they intend to violate the constitution they’ve sworn to uphold, then it is indeed an illegal proceeding.
I wish many Americans would do the same concerning Obama, who will once again swear upon a bible to ”uphold, defend the US constitution”, though we all know full well he still insists upon fundamentally transforming the US. It’s why many of us deem the US to be in a post-constitutional republic.
This is mirrored from Vlad’s post at his request. The man who objects to the swearing in of this mustard deserves all of our thanks and praise. We need more people like him to stand up and say what is right. It ‘s wonderful to know that Alain Wagner, a personal friend of mine was there with him.
Anderlecht [Brussels]: Clash during swearing-in of Islam list alderman
Translation by Michael Laudahn:
From RTL.Be A protest was launched after the swearing-in of Redouane Ahrough, elected alderman for the Islam list at Anderlecht, around 7.30 pm on Sunday. ‘It’s the extreme right who express themselves, who do not swallow that we are integrated’, replied M Ahrough, after the incident.
Monday evening, the swearing-in of one of the two elected aldermen of the Islam list was disturbed. David Erzet, president of the Nonali association, an association that simply advocates the banning of the Islamic religion, rose at the end of the ceremony, in order to declare that it was illegal and anti-democratic to tolerate an alderman who ‘wants to install sharia in Belgium’. He was accompanied by Alain Wagner, president of ICLA France.
‘You have seen where the extremists are’, reacted alderman Redouane Ahrough, interviewed by our journalist Vanessa Costanzo. ‘We, we are loyalists. But some people want to be above the law. It’s the extreme right-wing who express themselves. We have been insulted for 30 years, we the 2nd and 3rd generation of Belgians. Today, they don’t manage to swallow that we are integrated, and that we quite simply will work democratically within the political system.’
Mischaël Modrikamen, the president of the Parti Populaire (PP), and five to seven members of the extreme right-wing movement Nation were present during the swearing-in of Redouane Ahrough at Anderlecht, but did not intervene.
The disrupters were rapidly removed from the hall of the municipal council.
In contrast, there were no disturbances at the swearing-in ceremony of Lhoucine Aït Jeddig in Molenbeek [Brussels], second alderman elected for the Islam list for Brussels capital.
VLAD: All very interesting isn’t it? What with “far right wing” this and that. Even so, i must ask: Why run a candidate democratically to install a theocratic totalitarian dictatorship?
