Two die in Belgium 'race killing'

A woman of African origin and a young white child in her care have been shot dead in the Belgian city of Antwerp by a suspected right-wing extremist.

Earlier a woman of Turkish descent was shot and injured as she sat reading a book on a bench in the city centre.

Police later intercepted the man, and shot and wounded him in the stomach after he refused to put down his gun.

The government has strongly condemned the attacks, describing them as an extreme form of racism.

The 18-year old suspect is currently under guard in hospital.

A spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office said the youth had been armed with a high calibre weapon.

Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt called for calm.

"These horrible and cowardly crimes are a form of extreme racism," he said.

"We have to avoid our society being sucked into a spiral of violence. The police and the judicial system will do all that is needed for justice to be done."

The killings follow an attack last Saturday in the city of Bruges, in which a black Frenchman was left in a coma after being beaten up by a group of skinheads.

The last 3 weeks Belgium certainly didn't make the news in a positive way, far from 3 weeks went by and 3 brutal and very shocking events took place: The killing of a boy for his MP3-player, and 2 racist attacks. I always thought these were the kind of things that only happened in the USA (no offense to the Americans ) or other countries. After the first murder I hoped this was a one-off, 'just' two guys with no morals at all, who don't consider the life of a human-being having more value than an MP3 player. But now the 2 events of last week I know there is racism in Belgium and I know the extreme-right party gets a lot of votes but untill now beating somebody almost to death and killing people on the street didn't happen (maybe I'm too naive here). I already hold my breath for next week

I just read about this on lalibre.be...
this is quite sad!

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Hopefully we don't have such things in less big cities than Antwerpen, Brussels or cities like those... But those things have to be punished as hard as possible...

Wolves are my soul, my everything !

Know your real ennemies : don't let you fool by the mainstream media : They are full time LIARS ! NEVER trust the government !

BNP Paribas, JP Morgan, Lagardere are criminals : WAKE UP !

Both are right in Europe. But Conservatives are more on the right than liberals which are closer to the center.

Wow this is wrong and scary... I always thought Belgium was a little-cute-peaceful country that I'd love to visit deeper (and still think/will do so).
I guess it's happening everywhere, some retarded/coward group of people who has always existed hidden to an extent have somehow managed to get a single brain for all the gang and might have come up with the conclusion that this and not politics is the way to get his goals.

Once again ashamed of my race.

When are we.....? You know, there really isn't any point in asking, because we never will learn. And we never will understand. Just sad.
