“Well my friends, that’s not going to happen.”
A woman wearing a hijab walked through the Brussels memorial site, where she proceeded to pick up an Israeli flag among the items left and rip it up. The unidentified woman also took a Palestinian flag from the memorial and held unto it.
A French-language station captured the incident, though none of the new commentators made mention of it.
The Daily Mail reports, “During the clip, which is just over one minute long, a woman wearing a hijab, a brown coat and a scarf picks up a Palestinian flag from the candle-lit vigil and takes it over to an Israeli flag.
“She bends down to pick up the blue and white Israeli flag and begins ripping it up, before placing the pieces beneath another flag, which looks as though it could be the symbol of Georgia,” according to the news outlet.
What is not clear from the footage is whether the woman replaces the torn up Israeli flag with the Palestinian one in her hand. No one lingering near the memorial appears to approach the woman regarding her unusual, provocative actions.
“In all these cases, the terrorists have no resolvable grievances,” Netanyhau continued. “It’s not as though we could offer them Brussels or Istanbul or California or even the West Bank. That won’t satisfy their grievances, because what they seek is our utter destruction and their total domination.
“Their basic demand is that we should simply disappear. Well my friends, that’s not going to happen,” he promised. “The only way to defeat these terrorists is to join together and fight them together. That’s how we’ll defeat terrorism – with political unity and with moral clarity. I think we have that in abundance.”
