Our vice-president Ayse Elkilic underlined the fact that hate crimes against muslims are not punished in a repressive, preventive and encouraging way at the OSCE conference on the security of muslims
ThinkOut veroordeelt de terroristische aanslagen vandinsdagochtend 22 maart 2016 in Brussel waarbij meer dan 34 onschuldige burgers de dood vonden en tientallen anderen gewond raakten.
The future of the minorities and the Muslim communities in the framework of equality and security 27/11/2015 at Parliament of Belgium
Islamophobia, a contemporary euphemism for the Crusades which has never been taken out of circulation by the Western world. Meanwhile, hate crimes are globally seen as a shame and the normative Westerners obviously realize they need to boost their image in order to dispose of or at least blur the idea that they are abusing their own idols.
What brought us together here today is the loss of the lives of 613 civilians, after an inhuman massacre on the 26th of February 1992. These civilians weren’t soldiers. They were innocent people living peacefully in there own village. They were brutally murdered just because of their race and faith.
On Thursday, January 22 at the session of the federal parliament, Filip Dewinter (Vlaams Belang) provoked a lot of outrage with his intervention about Islam.
ThinkOut strongly condemns the vicious terrorist attack on civilians and security forces in Paris.
Furthermore, the terrorist attack in Istanbul a few days ago once again confirmed our view that terrorism has no religion and no nationality and that it constitutes a crime against humanity.
We urge unity and solidarity of the international community for an effective fight against terrorism.
Our thoughts are with the families and loved ones of the victims in both Paris and Istanbul, and we wish the wounded a speedy recovery.
We as Thinkout have for challenge to include, integrate and enforce the different cultures in Europe in the mainstream society while respecting the human rights.
As ThinkOut we see that the amount of hate crimes against muslims have increased and therefore we would like to give the following recommendations:
The freedom of speech is very important and is a condition for a succesfull democracy where tolerance is essential for the survival and therefore is an undisputable human right.
It was not a long ago that the voice of those claiming the Internet should remain a sphere of complete and absolute freedom, unrestrained from any regulation whatsoever, was loud.
THINKOUT is an NGO that aims to work to strengthen and reinforce social cohesion in the new European realities. This New Europe will therefore be better equipped to tackle the socio-economical crises which hit us since the last ten years.
