It’s really a shame to give sharia advocating Muslims any publicity, but just like we tried to expose the jihad in Ireland, the goal here is the same. If they are recruiting for jihad or issuing veiled threats (convert or else) to non-Muslims, maybe others will see this post and the site won’t be around long.
The latest group calls itself Sharia for Belgium. We won’t spend a lot of time dissecting and analyzing the site, but, in any language, a homepage featuring this logo and videos from Anwar al Awlaki, Anjem Choudary, and others is usually a leading indicator of jihadist tendencies.
A quick translation reveals the Awlaki video is entitled, “Non-Muslims under the Islamic Caliphate,” which should alert all Belgians. The sparsely populated site includes an invitation to all Belgians that basically asks them to convert to Islam or become dhimmis to avoid painful punishment for them and their children:
Sharia prohibits any form of monopoly and no tax outside the Zakat (poor tax) or the jizya (protection money).
In this we invite the monarchy, parliament, the aristocracy and the whole Belgian population of each to the light of Islam. Red jezelf en je kinderen van de pijnlijke bestraffing van het Hiernamaals en gun jezelf een eeuwig leven in het Paradijs. Save yourself and your children from the painful punishment of the Hereafter and allow yourself an eternal life in Paradise.
The background image for the site appears to be the Belgian Parliament or Royal Palace (Palais de la Nation), with the black flag of jihad flying on top. This could be a hint for Belgian infidels who aren’t planning on converting.
For those who like to infiltrate jihadi forums, there is a login required user forum.
Update: Sharia4Belgium has a Youtube page as well
From the website of Flip Dewinter who points out that Sharia4Belgium not only has a website and forum, but also a Youtube page. He also points out that while the group takes care to claim it is opposed to violence to submit Belgium to Islamic sharia law – that the videos on Youtube clearly indicate this group of Muslims not only believes in violent jihad and martyrdom, but promotes it with 150+ videos – including many from al-Qaeda linked recruiter and inciter to jihad Anwar al Awlaki.
One of the first videos available on the Sharia4Belgium Youtube page is titled Jihad against Moderate and a Kafir, as well as Jihad Is Obligatory, Encouraging Jihad, Dueling & Guerrilla Warfare, and The Virtues Of Martyrdom – just to name a few.
