The anti-racism movement MRAX (Movement Against Racism, Anti-Semitism, and Xenophobia) plans to launch a complaint against TVBrussel. The association blames the Brussels regional broadcaster for a broadcast with Dutch journalist Arthur Van Amerongen, who used racist language in the program, according to MRAX. In his book _BXL Eurabia,’ Van Amerongen paints a picture of Moroccan life in Brussels, wherein Moroccans hold hatred for Belgians, are depicted as highly dangerous, and a terror attack is anticipated. According to MRAX, TVBrussel aired the interview of Amerongen without any counter opinion to balance out the writer’s racist and xenophobic comments.
