WAI president’s new book: A.N.K.E. #PoliticallyIncorrect

Anke Van dermeersch was born and raised in Antwerp. She became Miss Belgium in 1991 and then studied law at the Antwerp University, where she also became a Master in Tax Law. During her lawyer career she was elected senator for the Vlaams Blok in 2003. Since 2006, she is also Antwerp City Councilor and in 2014 she became a member of the Flemish Parliament for Vlaams Belang. In 2012, Anke Van dermeersch wrote her first political book about women’s rights and Islam under the title ‘Whore or slave’. As president of the European organization she has already conducted several high-profile campaigns against the violation of women’s rights through the import of Islam through mass immigration.

With the book ‘A.N.K.E. #PolitiekIncorrect ‘she responds to the social tendency in which social media provide insight into the lives of well-known Flemings and politicians. Through this book you will find out who she is and what drives her. A photo annex illustrates her life as a model, Miss, mother, lawyer and politician. Images sometimes say more than words …

#PoliticsIncorrect is the red thread through Anke’s life. From the legal profession to politics, from #MeToo to Islam, she never leaves a magazine. Her views are often at odds with what the Wetstraat and the mainstream media want to impose on the population.

This book is also an indictment of the Islamization of our society and the fact that women’s rights come under pressure as a result. The welfare of a people is measured by the welfare of women and children.

#MeToo : Antwerp is a dangerous city for women

While #Metoo has become a hysterical container concept including flirting and there has been a period of fuss about Bart De Pauw’s text messages, the figures show that a city like Antwerp is a woman-unfriendly city.

In Antwerp, a woman was raped almost every two days by an individual or group in 2017. In less than 10% of the cases, suspects were identified, so the vast majority of the rapists are still free. In the first 11 months of 2017 no fewer than 61 women were killed in murder or murder in Antwerp, in other words: in Antwerp, a woman is killed or murdered every week. In the same period, a total of 13,094 women were victims of a criminal offense, especially battles and wards; these are 39 female victims every day.

Girls and women have been warned: due to mass immigration and Islamization, Antwerp has become a dangerous city. And if mothers are not safe, then their daughters are certainly not. It can not be said that the white city flight and low fertility rates are related to indigenous women:

The staggering figures at a glance:

• In the first 11 months of 2017, 166 rape of women were registered in Antwerp, of which 33 in Antwerp city. District Deurne stands out with 19 rapes. 22 of the 166 registered rapes are gang rapes.

• The number of annually registered rapes of women since 2014 is at about the same level, proves that there is no improvement (176 in 2014, 157 in 2015, 154 in 2016, and 166 in the first 11 months of 2017).

• Suspects were identified for only 17 of the 166 registered rapes.

• 100 handbag thefts were registered in Antwerp in the first 11 months of 2017. In only 9% of cases, suspects were identified.

• In 2017, 22 neckline thefts were registered in Antwerp. In only 9% of cases, suspects were identified.

• In the first 11 months of 2017, 2,819 facts were registered in Antwerp where women were the victims of beating and injuring, murder or manslaughter; as a result of manslaughter (53) or murder (8), 61 female victims did not survive. In total, it concerns 3,213 unique female victims.

• In the first 11 months of 2017, a total of 13,094 women were registered in Antwerp who were victims of a criminal offense. That is almost 39 women victims per day. This involves a total of 16,038 facts or almost 48 criminal offenses against women every day. The vast majority (10,219) of these facts are: intentional strokes and injuries (3,732 offenses against women); single or ordinary theft (2,253 facts against women); vandalism (1,628 facts against women); theft with aggravating circumstances priority home (1,545 facts to

Boycott Nike due to launch discriminatory #NikeProHijab-headscarf on International Women’s Day

Women Against Islamization (VTI) notes that precisely on womensday Nike launhes a hijab for Muslim women – the so-called #NikeProHijab.

VTI recalls that the headscarf is forced upon women by the Islam and that according to mainstream Islamic teachings and women are  inferior and responsible for the sexual morality of men. The headscarf is a symbol of the (sexual) discrimination against women. With tis Nike sports scarf the brand involves in the standardization and trivializing the headscarf. The headscarf is made ‘fashionable’, with the result that it will eventually becomes a fashion gadget and will be worn by non-Muslim women. As a result, the suppression of women is made acceptable. It is not because these headscarves may be worn voluntarily by some women, the misogynist symbolism disappears – which is, after all, formed by 14 centuries of Islamic theory and practice, under which many millions of women have greatly suffered and are still suffering today. Nike, as a popular sports brand, has a great social responsibility for people all over the world.

Nike abuses it’s popularity to make the inhumane headscarf mainstream and acceptable. In other words, Nike sells out women’s rights, and this on International Women’s Day!

VTI therefore calls for a boycott of Nike products. VTI has been pursuing for some time a campaign with the slogan ‘Headscarf? No pennies! “(See poster attached).

As part of this campaign VTI calls on people not to buy Nike products more and sticker and poster ‘Headscarf? No money! ‘

Mass migration: A woman’s point of view

The speech I held during my visit to Greece and the islands:

Ladies and gentlemen,


My name is Anke Van dermeersch and I was first elected Belgian Senator in  2003 and re-elected ever since.

I’m also City Councilor in my home town Antwerp and member of the Flemish parliament for the political party Vlaams Belang.

I am in Greece on a fact finding mission concerning the immigration- and refugee policy in Greece during the European refugee crisis.

I have visited Lesbos, where almost half the migrants that have entered Europe arrived, crossing the sea from Turkey to the Lesbos’ east coast.

I also visited Chios, the fifth largest Greek island, four miles from the Turkish coast, where I visited the new reception centre constructed with the help of the UN.

I have noticed that most of the refugees come from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. They are mostly moslim man and if there are children amongst the refugees, they are mainly boys too.

After seeing the consequences of the refugee crisis in Greece and it’s islands, it is a pleasure to be able to speech here in the Greek parliament, the birthplace of democracy.

It is exactly that democracy that I want to discuss in view of what I saw happening her at the borders of Europe.

Aeschines, an Athenian statesman, orator, and follower of Socrates, defined democracy. He wrote that democracy is ‘rule by laws’ – not ‘rule by the people’.

Today, this is exactly the problem we face with our current European democracies. Rules, and particularly immigration rules, are violated by migrants. Foreign people overrule us and our rules of law are ignored.

The well-being of a people can be measured by the position of women and the welfare of their children. Unfortunately, we – women – in Europe are not doing well.

The Islamization of Europe goes fast and was speed up by the refugee crisis.

As the President of the organization I fight already for many years against this Islamization, because women and children are always the first victims of Islam.

Islam is entirely in contradiction with common human rights. The Sharia, or Islamic law, denies especially women personal free choice, imposes the inequality of the sexes, exhibits absolute intolerance against dissidents and promotes inhuman punishments.

Females are systematically discriminated, oppressed and molested. With respect to the treatment of women, Islam is synonymous to humiliation and discrimination.

Due to the continues inflow of non-Western immigrants and asylum seekers as well as the islamization of Europe, new kinds of criminal facts were also imported.

Along with Islam, savage practices such as honor killings, forced marriage, polygamy and female genital mutilation were introduced into our society. Especially young girls and women are now victims of crimes we did not have in Europe until the mass migration started.

In addition to criminal acts of moslims towards women, we suffer also often harassment when just walking in the street or swimming in a public swimming pool. Sure, there are also European men who harass, molest or rape girls or women, and far too much, but with the tsunami of Muslim asylum seekers we experience now foremost the typical jihad-rape culture and the insecurity of girls and women in our society increase exponentially.

My organization ‘’ is mainly active on the new media such as the internet, Twitter and Facebook.

We are a collective of resilient women who oppose the left-wing immigration politics and the Islamization of Europe that comes along with it.

Because we do not have sufficient means, we make talked-about campaigns and actions to spread our warnings, messages and solutions.

Our burqini poster, on which you see a lady wearing a bikini and a burqa at the same time, went viral around the globe. Another successful poster, the legs poster on which different gradations of islamization are shown, was prohibited by court because the shoe brand did not like it. Of course this made the poster even more interesting and it is still very successful on the internet where courts still have no grip. Of course, resilient as we are, we also printed a new version of the poster with yellow shoe soles.

We are a group of women with a wide range of trainings and occupations. When something nauseates us, we come in action.

Our actions are differ from demonstrations to silent vigils, from dangerous stunts to dress a statue with a burqa, to the hugging of animals to protest against Barbarian halal slaughter, from interviews in glossy magazines to parliamentary work.

I am by training a lawyer and legislation is my kind of thing.

I am the architect of Europe’s burqa ban. In 2004 I wrote and introduced the burqa ban law in the Belgian Senate, which later on served as the basis for all other burqa ban laws in other European countries. I’m very proud of this achievement.

Actually, all the work which was already done by my organization Women Against Islamization makes me proud and as you can see we did make already a lot of campaigns, showing in beautiful images, what we warn about.

In this erea of internet images are important, but we do try also to spread our message on a profound way with lots of arguments.

In this respect I wrote a book: “Neither Whore nor Slave—Women and Islam”

My book provides not only information about the influence of Islam on the lives of women in Europe, but after each theoretical chapter, ordinary women, mothers and daughters, from the most diverse walks of life, talk in interviews about their lifes and how this was already marked by the Islam and the Islamization.

In the book I warn for the Islamization of our European society.

Ladies and gentlemen,

It is time to stop the renunciation of our own identity. Time to stop capitulating to multiculturalism! We need to wake up, pay attention and take action to defend the foundations which made us what we are and on which we once built a world Empire: our heritage of the Ancient Greece, Christianity, Humanism and Enlightenment.

It is possible to turn the tide. And there is hope!

Not only in the USA , but also in France, Germany, Holland, England, Italy, Hungary and other European countries, right wing, patriotic parties are very successful in the elections.

Now is the time to return to the path of a strong, self-confident, identitarian Europe. This is a great task, an historical challenge which our generation is both challenged and privileges to rise to meet.

It is the crusade of our times, to which we must dedicate our lives, following the example of so many of the best of our ancestors. Awareness, militancy and clarity of purpose, are the keys to winning this fight for a future for Europe and our children.

Action: “Headscarf? No money!”

[PRESS RELEASE – August 26, 2016]

Vlaams Belang Antwerp and Women Against Islamisation call for boycott of companies that promote headscarf

Action ‘Headscarf? No money! ” launched today.


Muslims insist increasingly on their traditions, values and standards in our society. The recurring debate on headscarves, the ritual slaughter and now the burqini are evidence of this fact. Daily Islam dominates the news. Under the false pretext of freedom of expression, tolerance and freedom of religion muslims try to push an agenda of intolerance and restriction of freedom. Democracy and pluralism, inherent to our Western secular society, are abused to introduce the Islam, an intolerant ideology. A lot of politicians, opinion makers and companies work the Islamization of our society in the hand trying to please muslims for money and sales.

The headscarf, like the burqa and the niqab, aren’t innocent piece of clothing but symbols of the subordination of women in Islam or Islamic society. Moreover, the Islamic body covering for women, regardless of the number of centimeters textiles, are the expression of a political aim: the introduction of the Islamic legal system (Sharia). This political symbolism has been shaped by 1400 years of Islamic theory and practice and is what it is, regardless of the motive of the individual wearer.

Companies that allow the headscarf to staff working woman support this islamic discrimination of women and are  the pioneers for the totalitarian Islamist ideology, with all its consequences. Firms such as Torfs, Hema and Albert Heijn suggest that the market / consumer requires them to accept women with headscarves. Entrepreneurs should have this freedom, they need to master their own business and their own staff. But, the market / consumers also have the choice to only buy from shops and businesses that do show respect for our Western values.

Therefore Vlaams Belang Antwerp and Women Against Islamisation spread in the coming weeks in Antwerp stickers, posters and pamphlets with the text “Headscarf? No Money!” with a headscarf ban symbol. It is indeed time that Flemish people, who are tired of the Islamization of their cities, make their voices heard, by buying conscious at businesses  that opt for employees without a headscarf. They can count on our support.
