    A priest offered up his shower to a refugee who needed it, after availing himself of the kind offer the refugee tried to rob the priest by demanding money, when it wasn't forthcoming the 'refugee' proceeded to stab the priest. The elderly man was rushed to hospital but his injuries aren't thought to be life threatening.

    The Mayor of Lanaken has made a public statement that "this can't be linked to terrorism" so it's not so bad I guess :dontknow:

    "A priest has been stabbed in his own home when he allegedly refused to give an asylum seeker money after letting him use his shower.Father Jos Vanderlee, 65, suffered injuries to his hands and tendons during the incident at his property in Lanaken, Belgium.The asylum seeker knocked on the pastor's door to ask for help and whether he could use his shower, reports Belgian newspaper"

    "Prosecutors said the incident happened at around 2.40pm local time on Sunday and the attacker is said to have fled the scene.Authorities in Belgium have launched an investigation but they have stressed that the incident can't be linked to terrorism at this stage. Marino Keulen, the mayor of Lanaken, said: 'Despite the fact that we are shocked, we must stress that this incident can not be linked to terrorist acts at this stage of the investigation.'"

    Honestly what will it take for Europe's (predominantly Germany's) open-door, naive immigration policy to change? It disgusts me to see Europe being destroyed by these scum - yet they just sit by and let it happen.
