A man with a ‘migrant background’, attacked the 87-year-old Hendrik Keuleers and left him for dead last year. Since the elderly man started criticising Islam he is no longer safe in his own house.
Keuleers, who lives in the Belgian city of Ghent, is known for his window posters that criticize bull fights, Spain’s prime minister and Islam.
It wasn’t the first incident for the old man. Belgian media say his house has been terrorised for years after he started criticising Islam with self-made window posters.
His flower pots were destroyed, his windows were smashed, and last year it resulted in the latest attack, during which he was kicked off his bicycle.

Video footage of the incident shows how Keuleers was attacked by a man with a migrant background. He spat at the old man and kicked him off his bicycle. Keuleers was unconscious and left for dead.
After the violent incident it did not stop and someone even reported Keuleers for encouraging racism and violence. Fortunately for him the case was dropped.
Keuleers reacts: “Yes my posters are controversial and generate discussions. Why isn’t that allowed in the rebellious Ghent? Why am I not allowed what a lot of people are thinking but don’t dare to say?”
It is not clear what the Belgium’s justice system will do against the violent migrant men who are terrorising Keuleers. In the meanwhile, the old man’s newly installed bulletproof glass screen has already been broken.
