In their own words: "The Belgian League against Antisemitism (LBCA) has the mission to lead in Belgium the fight against anti-Semitism in all its forms. [... W]hen necessary, the LBCA will also act in a repressive manner by appealing to the justice system to apply the 1981 law against racism and xenophobia and the 1995 law against denialism." (lbca.be)
Debout Les Belges! (Belgians, Rise up!) is an anti-Zionist political group in Belgium. The Belgian League against anti-Semitism together with the Simon Wiesenthal Center successfully campaigned to shut one of the group's events down. Quote: 'LBCA, Friday filed a complaint before the Brussels prosecutor against what it called "a day of hate, that would serve as a platform for the worst gathering of anti-Semite authors, theorists and propagandists that our country has seen since the end of World War II." [...] "The fact that this hatefest is to be held in Brussels, the capital of Europe, the seat of its Parliament... is a threat to democracy reminiscent of the 1920s Weimar Republic [..."] Shimon Samuels warned in a statement.
A Belgian watchdog on anti-Semitism warned that the country’s public schools are becoming “Jew-free” zones because of harassment. Joel Rubinfeld, president of the Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, made the remark in an interview for the weekly Le Vif/L’Express published earlier this month. He revealed that the only Jewish student at the Emile Bockstael high school in Brussels left following harassment and threats from classmates after she posted a picture of an Israeli flag on Facebook.
