Several LBFN friends have visited Brussels to contribute to meetings of the European Network on Religion & Belief. The shootings over the weekend at the Jewish Museum there, on the eve of national and EU elections, have made distressing news.
The League of Muslims in Belgium has issued a statement condemning the killing of innocent people. ENORB has an English translation of the LMB statement on its website. CEJI – a Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe – has also responded with an article on Anti-Semitism and the Future of Europe outlining recommended actions. Karim Chemlal (LMB) and Robin Sclafani (CEJI) are both members of ENORB and will be participating in the AGM on 17-18 June in Brussels, which will include a reflection on the results of the EU elections and their impact on religion and belief communities across the continent.
