Brussels Bans ‘Offensive’ Christmas Tree For Muslims

ANOTHER act of pre-emptive dhimmitude on the part of a Western government.  This despicable cowardice is spreading like a wild fire.   The only "offensive" thing here is the craven cowardice of the Brussels government.

Brussels Bans ‘Offensive’ Christmas Tree For Muslims

The traditional Christmas tree will no longer be lit in downtown Brussels.

Government officials in Brussels, Belgium banned Wednesday a popular Christmas tree exhibit out of concerns that the local Muslim population found it “offensive.”

An “electronic winter tree,” will take the place of the traditional Christmas Tree and Nativity scene at the city center of Grand Place, reports Brussels News.

The electronic sculpture will stand 25 meters (82 feet) tall and consists of a set of television screens, reports Brussels Expat. “During the daytime you can climb to the top of the tree where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city,” the website explains. “As soon as it becomes dark the tree turns into a spectacle of light and sound. Every ten minutes an amazing show will unfold.”

City councilwoman Bianca Debaets believes a “misplaced argument” over religious sensitivities has moved Brussels to put up the light sculpture. She points to the fact that it display not be referred to “Christmas” in any way to make her point.
