Belgian police officer facing dismissal over threat to kill Jews

Dismissal proceedings have been launched against a Belgian police officer who said on Facebook that he would kill “each and every Jew.”
The mayor of Molenbeek, Belgium, Francoise Schepmans, initiated the proceedings against the officer, who was identified as Mohamed N., the French-language daily Belgian newspaper Le Soir reported Saturday. Molenbeek is located in the Brussels-Capital Region of Belgium.
The police officer, using the moniker Bebeto Gladiateur in a Facebook thread discussing the Armenian genocide, repeatedly tried to divert the conversation to a discussion about the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
“The word Jew itself is dirty. If I were in Israel, frankly, I would do to the Jews what they do with the Palestinians — slaughter each and every one of them,” he wrote.
