The man's horrific treatment by these self-proclaimed ISIS members is all the more infuriating as he explains that he had previously reached out to Belgian authorities and social services to report threats against him from Muslim extremists. Perhaps stories like his and warnings like that from Dr. Sebastian Gorka will make Westerners in general and Americans in particular wake up to the threat in their midst:
“According to the Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism Unia, Sharky had reached out to them over the online harassment long before the attack. They confirmed the acts of aggression dated to this weekend, and stated that: ‘The victim has been threatened on his Facebook profile and physical aggression was already there.'
Police in the area have confirmed that they are currently looking for suspects in the case but so far no one has been arrested. The local prosecutor has told the press that while they could confirm the details of the attack, the motivation was still in question.
The attack comes on the heels of both the mass shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando that left 49 dead, and the fatal stabbing of a police officer and his wife in France, both of which Islamic State claimed responsibility via its media arm Amaq Agency.
Attacks against homosexuals and transsexuals, as was the case in Dortmund earlier this year, by Islamic State and other radical Islamists have become more and more common in European cities and asylum homes. Some cities and local governments are considering separating Muslims from homosexuals and others in their asylum homes for the safety of the latter.”
