Belgium’s Jews are in an uproar and have filed a police complaint after a Belgian journalist wrote in an article that “there is no promised land, only stolen land.”

The journalist, Dimitri Verhulst, writing in the leftist Belgian daily De Morgen on July 27, stated, “Being Jewish is not a religion, no God would give creatures such an ugly nose.”

He misquoted former French-Jewish singer Serge Gainsbourg who said, “Being Jewish is not a religion. No religion makes you grow such a nose.”

Verhulst also accused Israel of murdering 10,000 Palestinians during the past 17 years.
