Blood & Honour links to Vlaams Belang. See prior article on Blood and Honour and Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest) Party; September 8, 2006,Police raid army barracks 'to foil Nazi terror plot' By David Charter in Brussels... BELGIAN police claimed yesterday to have foiled a neo-Nazi terrorist plot after arresting 11 soldiers and seizing a large quantity of weapons during raids on five army barracks. The federal prosectutor’s office said that the group had planned to destabilise the country and had apparently infiltrated the military. It had also amassed a sophisticated range of arms and explosives. Lieve Pellens, a spokeswoman for the office, said:
The Blood and Honour skinhead organization has a branch in Serbia, where it is called Krv i čast. On their official web site, members of the Serbian branch claim they intend "to propagate revolutionary idea of National Socialism without compromise. Also, the intention of Serbian Blood and Honour Division is to motivate all NS followers to radical activities and not only to passive observing or listening to the music." This organization, with chapters in several Serbian cities, organized several memorial concerts on the anniversary of Hitler's birth, starting in 2001.
