No Christmas tree in Brussels.

It offends moslems.

BRUSSELS BANS CHRISTMAS TREES because they are offensive to Muslims | BARE NAKED ISLAM


Quote:
Until last year there was an annual Christmas tree standing in the center of the Grote Market in Brussels. Councillor Bianca Debaets regrets that this year the traditional Market tree will not be there. “I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor,” she added.
---------

“Not that the Christmas tree is a Christian religious symbol, but the tree obviously is a reference to Christmas itself, which is why it has been banished from the Market. And that’s a shame. “

Debaets think a historical and multireligious city should keep the historical traditions alive while allowing all ideologies (even the violent ones like Islam?). “For a lot of people (Muslims) who are not Christians, the tree there is offensive to them,” she concluded.

“What’s next?” Debaets wondered. “Will all eggs be banned from the city because they are symbolic of Easter? Is this what Brussels has become – a Muslim city?



Gee, didn't everyone's crazy uncle Joe Biden say he thought Brussels would make a dandy world capitol?

You know what I haven't heard in a while? The Abercrombie & Fitch song. I always thought that was pretty enjoyable.

The American left would approve of this action.

I am not sure how you got evil Muslims out of this. It seems like a political correctness thing; not a Islamic outrage thing.
