Belgium - Belgian Islamist Group Hit List On Prominent Jews Found
Belgium - According to Belgian newspaper “La Dernière Heure”, a list of possible Jewish personalities was found in the apartment of Islamist belgian-Moroccan Abdelkhader Belliraj during a search of his apartment, in conjunction with the arrest of some members of the Islamist Belgian movement.
This alleged “hit list” included other prominent Jewish figures such as A prominent figure in the the French Jewish community Orthodox Rabbi Josy Eisenberg, Simone Süsskind, an important figure of the Belgian Jewish community, and chairman of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists
The list has been confirmed by the Belgian District Attorney’s Office. No further details have been given.
The suspect has been in Morocco since February 2008 after his arrest. He was due to undergo a trial on January 9th on charges of having assassinated or having ordered the assassination of six people in Belgium during the 80’s and on arms trafficking charges.
With this new development, one of his lawyers, Vincent Lurquin, has not received authorization to contact his client in Morocco or have access to his dossier in that country. He is equally not privy to the defendant’s case files in Belgium, which has been pending for several months.
In Morocco, he was accused of having incited an operation to destabilize the current administration and of creating Islamist networks. He is known to have rubbed elbows with Al Qaeda and other radical groups. He has also served as an informer to Belgian Security Services. Apparently a man of many talents.
