Last year, Muslim apologist Alexandre Laumonier published an article in Le Monde declaring that "Molenbeek isn't a ghetto". Now, in an interview with the same newspaper, he explains why he decided to leave the area.
I left Molenbeek for one simple reason: signing my son up for school. I had no wish every day to meet women coming to look for their children wearing burkas, or these sinister bearded proselytes who wake the streets. After eight years in Molenbeek, and even without the attacks, it was time to go to another place where, in the street, people's looks don't make you feel as much that you are nothing but an infidel.Source
