Belgium Politician, Daughter Receive Death Threats Over Muslim Veil & Bikini Ad Campaign
by Madeleine Morgenstern
A Flemish nationalist politician in Belgium said he and his daughter have received death threats after she posed in a Muslim veil and bikini as part of his "Women Against Islamization" campaign.
Filip Dewinter, head of the far-right Vlaams Belang — or "Flemish Interest" party — used a photo of his 19-year-old daughter An-Sofie wearing only a niqab — a face-covering Islamic veil — and cloak over her swimsuit-clad body in the campaign earlier this month, the Daily Mail reported. Across her chest is the message "Freedom or Islam?" and "You choose!" over her hips.
According to NBC News, Vlaams Belang advocates strict immigration limits and believes new arrivals to the country should adopt the Flemish language and culture.
