A political party in Belgium has started a campaign, called "Women against Islamization", with a logo in which a young woman appears in a burqa and a bikini. The campaign was launched by the rightwing Vlaams Belang party. Featured in the campaign logo is An-Sofie Dewinter, the gorgeous teenage daughter of Philip (Fillip)Dewinter, leader the of Vlaams Belang party. The burqa covers An-Sofie’s head and face while the rest of it falls behind her back. The burka and bikini logo is meant for the "Freedom or Islamization" campaign.
DAILY MAIL UK....Belgian politician risks Muslim backlash after using teenage daughter dressed in burka and bikini for campaign against Islam. A Belgian politician has risked causing uproar among Muslims after starting a 'Women Against Islamization' campaign featuring his 19-year-old daughter wearing a burka and a bikini.
Filip Dewinter, leader of the far-right Vlaams Belang party, uses a shot of his daughter An-Sofie Dewinter in the dark blue bikini for the political campaign. The glamorous teenager dons a burka that covers her head and face, while the rest of the Muslim garment is draped over her back. The provocative image is likely to inflame tensions among Islamic groups and nationalists in the racially-divided country.
The poster shows the words 'Freedom or Islam?' written on a red bar across Ms Dewinter's breasts. Further down the poster a black panel with the words 'You choose!' is seen covering the teenager's crotch. The extremist Vlaams Belang party claims that it wants to convince women to take a stand against Islam. Ms Dewinter told the Belgian press she does not feel used by the party, YEAH RIGHT LOL.
Vlaams Blok party changed name to Vlaams Belang (VB) 2004, VB founders had strong links to collaborators with Nazis during WW ll, Geert Wilders to VB
The Vlaams Blok (VB: Flemish Block) a Belgian secessionist political party which advocated anti-immigration. Its ideologies embraced Flemish nationalism, calling for independence of Flanders. On November 14, 2004 the party changed its name to Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest). From its creation in 1978, it was the most notably militant right wing of the Flemish movement.
The VB founders had strong links to, and open sympathy for, the collaboration with the Nazis during World War II. The Vlaams Blok (VB) was particularly strong in and around Antwerp, where it received thirty-three percent of the votes in the last municipal elections in which it participated.
All significant Flemish political parties were reluctant to enter coalitions with the Vlaams Blok. Following the cordon sanitaire agteement, Vlaams Blok never entered any level of government. As of 2006, this agreement still applies to the successor party, Vlaams Belang, although a coalition exists between the Vlaams Belang and the lesser known right wing party VLOTT.
The VB party first made its appearance in the 1978 general elections. It was founded by dissatisfied members of the largest right wing party at the time, the Volksunie (People's Union). Among them were a former Volksunie deputy (Lode Claes) and more militant people like Karel Dillen.
Dutch historians are currently revising the popular view of the relationship between the Netherlands and Germany’s Nazis during World War II. Contrary to the popular belief on collaboration, anti-communism in the Netherlands led to close Dutch-German collaboration and prewar arrests of Marxists and Jews. Jan Herman Brinks examines the Dutch myth of resistance and finds collaboration with the Nazis went right to the top.
Between March and October 1943 the group, led by Wim Henneicke and Willem Briedé, was responsible for tracking down Jews in hiding and arresting them. The group arrested and “delivered” to the Nazi authorities 8,000-9,000 Jews. Most of them were deported to Westerbork concentration camp and later shipped to and murdered in Sobibor and other German extermination camps.
The bounty paid to Henneicke Column members for each captured Jew was 7.50 guilders (equivalent to about US $47.50). The group, consisting of 18 core members, ended its work and was disbanded on 1 October 1943. However, the Column’s leaders continued working for the Central Bureau for Jewish Emigration tracking down hidden Jewish property.
The Henneicke Column was a group of Dutch Nazi collaborators working in the investigative division of the Central Bureau for Jewish Emigration (Zentralstelle für jüdische Auswanderung), with headquarters in Amsterdam, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
Before Germany retreated from the Netherlands (May 1945), Wim Henneicke was assassinated by the Dutch resistance in December 1944 in Amsterdam. Willem Briedé escaped the country and settled in Germany. In 1949 he was tried by a Dutch court in absentia and received the death penalty. The sentence was never carried out; Briedé died of natural causes in Germany in January 1962.
The history of the Henneicke Column was researched by Dutch journalist Ad van Liempt, who in 2002 published in the Netherlands "A Price on Their Heads, Kopgeld, Dutch bounty hunters in search of Jews, 1943".
