Three members of the Brussels regional parliament tabled a resolution on the fight against antisemitism in which they stress the urgency of appointing a Belgian national coordinator for the fight against antisemitism.
The resolution was tabled by three MPs from the liberal Mouvement Réformateur party, Viviane Teitelbaum, Alexia Bertrand and David Weytsman who called for other democratic parties to co-sign it.
It is part of a resolution adopted by the European Paeliament on antisemitism, the declaration of the European Council of 2018 and the Belgian Senate resolution on the same topic in the same year.
The CCOJB welcomes the motion for a resolution of the Brussels Parliament on the fight against anti-Semitism
The Coordinating Committee of Jewish Organizations in Belgium salutes the courage of some, who dare, despite the prevailing denial or relativism, to take concrete and specific initiatives to combat the scourge of anti-Semitism.
The CCOJB calls on all democrats not to procrastinate and accompany their words with deeds, by voting for the motion for a resolution tabled by Viviane Teitelbaum, Alexia Bertrand and David Weytsman, who opened it to the co-signature of the majority democratic parties and of the opposition.
The motion for a resolution is part of the European Parliament resolution of 2017, the declaration of the European Council of 2018, and, of course, the senatorial resolution on the subject the same year. In particular, it confirms the urgency of appointing a national coordinator for the fight against anti-Semitism.
Yohan Benizri, president of CCOJB, the representativbe body of Jeiwsh organisations in Belgium, welcomed the resolution ‘’as our country has unfortunately witnessed shame and has been singularly touched by anti-Semitism.’’
