    In an ad campaign that aired two months before Tuesday’s terrorist attacks, the tourism department of Brussels ridiculed the notion that the city was violent or prone to terrorist violence.

    The city set up a series of phones that people could call from all around the world and have everyday people in Brussels answer. “Did you see some people who are fighting with guns or bombs?” one caller asks.

    “No!” the person who answered the phone laughs. “Oh my god, no way!”

    Merkel should have to walk the streets of Cologne every night in a blonde wig and a mini skirt. Let her experience the wonders of diversity.

    Vile treasonous cunt.

    That's actually a pretty good concept for the message they were trying to send (not anymore!) ... whichever agency came up with it, wave bye bye to the Belgian equivalent of a Clio.

    Like when FOX News "made up" the story about "no go zones" in France and the threat in general from Muslimes! :nono:

    And the cum bucket dickheads at Young Turks laughed it up along with the French laughing it up. :cwl:




    Until it turned out to all be true: :doh:

    Ironic, I just came across this story about those leftist assholes protesting and showing solidarity with Palestinian terrorists.


    I bet these two assholes pouring the fake blood in the airport are alive and well, and looking for someone else to blame for the "real" blood in the airport today.

    ‘No weapons for Israel!’ Protest group pours fake blood in Belgium airport

    A Belgian feminist activist group LilithS literally painted Liege Airport red with a hundred liters of fake blood at the facility’s role in arming Israel. The red pool of ‘blood’ symbolized their perceived ‘slaughter’ of Palestinians in Gaza by Israel.

    Six women took part in the protest at 11.30 am on Tuesday. The members were all wearing t-shirts bearing the colors of the Palestinian flag as well as the slogans “Terrorism is real” and “Free Palestine.” They also unveiled a banner with the slogan: “How many tons of weapons for so many liters of blood?” the groups Facebook page stated.

    Their man gripe was how they believe Liege Airport is being used to transport arms for Israel, which are used against the people of Palestine. LilithS says that the Belgian government and the European Union are turning a blind eye to this, as long as the military material being transported does not change vehicles.

    26 Belgian non-profit organizations and other political parties have also spoken out against the lack of transparency shown by the airport.

    Amsterdam’s Schipol airport in the Netherlands was used to transport Israeli arms from the United States. LilithS’s Facebook page states that from 2005 to 2006, more than 160 million explosives, 17 million weapons and one million cartridges, tear gas canisters and detonators were sent to Israel, via the Dutch capital. These weapons were used in Israel’s campaign against Lebanon in 2006 and led to the loss of over a thousand people, the group added.

    The US started to transport weapons to Israel via Liege after Amsterdam introduced tougher regulations to its Schipol air hub. LilithS says the Belgian airport has no such transparency policy.

    However, Chirstian Delcourt, a spokesman for the airport says “there are no weapons that pass through this airport. This is an unfounded rumor, which you hear every time there is an escalation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” the Belgian website dhnet.com reports.

    He also stated that Liege Airport intends to file charges against the feminist activist group.

    A long-term truce in Gaza was agreed with Israel, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said on Tuesday, as the conflict entered its 51st day. The ceasefire came into effect at 16.00 GMT and was announced by Egypt.

    Since the conflict started on July 8, the death toll reached 2,210, the vast majority of whom were civilians and 577 were children, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.​
