The graffiti on a building in Belgium says it all: “Welcome to ‘Belgistan.” Muslims are still a minority in Belgium, but in the capital of Brussels, they’re already the largest religious group, comprising one-quarter of the city’s population. In less than 20 years they’re expected to be the majority.
CBN Brussels is the capital of Europe. But some are now calling it the Muslim capital of Europe. The most confrontational Muslim group here is Sharia4Belgium. Many don’t take the small group seriously. But Sharia4Belgium head Fouad Belkacem, alias Abu Imran, sounded very serious when he told CBN News he expects Muslims to dominate Belgium and the world.
“The Sharia will dominate,” Imran said. “We believe Sharia will be implemented worldwide.” A showdown over Sharia is coming because the high Muslim birthrate is changing the political landscape. The most common baby name in Brussels for four years running has been Mohammed.
CBN News asked Imran if he thinks it’s just a matter of time before Muslims are the majority in Belgium. “Of course,” he replied. “Even the disbelievers themselves — they say in 2030 something like that — there will be a majority of Muslims here in Belgium. Here in Antwerp in the schools, 40 percent of the children are Muslim, so no problem.”
“I don’t think we’re very far away,” Imran said. “The victory of Allah is very near. So, I think the West and Europe needs to prepare itself for a wave of Sharia and Islam.”
