    So I'm still wondering, and no one who wants to keep out the Syrian refugees seems to have an answer as to why we aren't blocking Belgians? Weren't the Paris attackers from Belgium? So why are so many mad at the Syrian refugees? Is this just an excuse to go to war against Syria?

    I honestly didn't know that things were so bad in Belgium that it had spawned a refugee crisis.

    Belgium is divided into three regions: Francophone Walloonia, Dutch speaking Flanders, and Brussels. So, my question stands Flemish or Walloons? Anybody else is not an assimilated Belgian.

    From which region were the terrorists?

    I'm still not clear on why everyone is so anti-Syrian refugees after what happened in Paris. And i'm not really sure why the regions of Belgium would make a difference when folks were saying Syrian refugees and not refugees from a certain region of Syria.

    Belgium actually has quite a history of refugees. I don't know that anybody had really heard much about Belgian terrorists. But they are apparently very real.

    Zaac, my point is you were unclear in your wording.
    I assume you were speaking of Muslim refugees from Belgium. However, that's not what was said.
