Belgium elections spark anti-Semitic events

Local elections in Belgium have triggered a wave of anti-Semitic events according to the country's co-ordinating committee of Belgian Jews. Health Minister Laurette Onkelinx complained to police about a pamphlet which named Yves Goldstein, a Jewish member of the Socialist Party, as an enemy of Islam. Onkelinx's party also noted email warnings to voters not to vote for them, saying it would be like "stabbing Palestinians in the back". The committee of Belgian Jews said that the police had not done enough to condemn the hate speech of the Turkish language pamphlets.
