And that’s a BIG problem because by 2012 a majority of the students in the Antwerp elementary schools will be Muslim.
40% of the students in the Antwerp municipal elementary schools (4,150) chose Islam as their religion class subject this year, according to data provided by the Antwerp alderman for education Robert Voorhamme (SP.A) upon request by Vlaams Belang.
According to Filip Dewinter (Vlaams Belang), by extrapolation, in 2012 a majority of the students in the Antwerp elementary schools will be Muslim. Voorhamme says this is an hypothesis. “People see a threat where there is none,” says the alderman for education.
“Islamophobia is an obligation,” says Filip Dewinter, a Flemish parliament member for Vlaams Belang and a counsellor in the Antwerp city council, in his book “Insha’Allah? The Islamization of Europe” which will be out Monday. The Antwerp head of Vlaams Belang thinks Islam is a predator which is attacking weak Europe. He asks for cutting back on the structures of Islam which are forming in Flanders, stopping Islamization and stopping immigration from Muslim countries.
Is his book Filip Dewinter aims not at Muslims, but at Islam as an ideology. “The moderate Muslims are many but they are not relevant.
31.5% chose a non-confessional morals class (3,235 students) and 26.5% chose Catholic religion (2,751 students). Other religions (Protestants, Orthodox) were chosen by a small number of students. In secondary schools, morals class is still more popular than Islam: 47.5% compared to 30.5%.
According to Vlaams Belang almost a third of the municipal elementary school in Antwerp have a majority of Muslim students. Dewinter demands an immigration stop for Antwerp. “The elementary school De Horizon in Borgerhout has only Muslim students this school year.”
The percent of students taking the Islam class increased by 20% compared with the numbers 2 years ago. The figures for the 2007-2008 school year were as follows: 33.6% Islam (3,469 students), 29% Catholicism (2,995 students) and 35% morals class (3,657 students).
Compared with two years ago, the number of students taking Islam classes in secondary school increased by 12%. ISLAM IN EUROPE
