Some of the most credible and widespread sightings of UFO were made in 1989 in Belgium. It was later titled "The Belgian UFO Wave".

Hi Unresolved!

It's been some months since I posted. Life gets in the way even of researching mysteries sometimes. (I know, shocking!)

This time I decided to dive head first in what is to me, a very local mystery.
As always, for those who prefer to watch and listen instead of read, here is our youtube video on the case: Intriguing Sightings Of The Belgian UFO Wave (we always try to stay as concise and close to the facts as possible)

While most reports of ufo sightings are made by a single individual or relatively small groups of people, what would later be dubbed as the Belgian UFO wave spanned nearly 2 years and had sightings made by thousands of people.

Another aspect that set this wave of strange reports apart from others around the world at that time is the unusual shape of the objects that were sighted in the sky.

Most UFO's at that time were described as round and disc shaped. These objects however were almost universally described as being triangular in shape, often accompanied by descriptions of white light in each of the triangle's corners and a central light of a red hue.

So, what was the first case reported?

Wednesday, november the 29th. Two members of the Belgian militairy police were going about their usual patrols in the scenic countryside of Eupen, located in the east of Belgium, a primeraly German speaking region.

One of the men, Heinrich Nicoll, noticed a strange, very bright light appearing over a meadow next to the highway they were driving on. He notified his flabergasted colleague, Hubert von Montigny, who comfirmed he saw the light too. Later the two men would describe the light's intensity similar to that of a local Soccer Stadium.

After a short time of observing this strange light, the two police men decided to investigate further. Upon opening their vehicle window and driving closer, they can make out the shape of a large platform floating in the sky, seemingly the source of the light.

As they make their way closer to the strange object, they are able to make out more details.

Three huge spotlights seemed to be attached to the bottom of the platform, all aimed downwards towards the dusk-covered ground beneath. One of the men estimated it was hovering at a height of about 120 meters, which is close to 400 feet. The surface of the object was completely smooth and a bright red, quickly blinking light could be seen dead center. Later estimations noted the floa

[Request] Kind Redditors of Belgium, could anyone please send a card to my six-year-old for her school project? [France]

EDIT: This subreddit is amazing! I have had so many responses from you lovely people that I should let you know that you've just outdone yourselves. To be honest we probably don't need anybody else to send a card, but it's just been so nice to talk to you. Your warmth and generosity is overwhelming. If you still wish to contact me to send a card, please do so in the knowledge that it will be received with love and gratitude and will add to ThΓ©a's understanding of the loveliness of Belgians. Plus, it's not so far away so when all of this pandemic craziness is over we'll be taking a trip to see it for ourselves :)

----

This is our daughter ThΓ©a,Β and our son Samuel. ThΓ©a is six years old, and quite lovely. For a school project she has to collect 100 of something, and she would love it if you could help her.

https://imgur.com/a/Oo3iTEj

ThΓ©a is fascinated with countries of the world, the people of those countries and their languages, so we are asking our friends, and people you know, (and people they know) to post a really quick letter or postcard to her. It would be great if you could add a note about who you are and where you are, which can be in your own language of course! But don’t worry about writing a lot, just a few words is enough and even a bare postcard would be appreciated. ThΓ©a’s first goal is to receive 100 letters, then we’ll aim to have them from 100 different countries, and after that we’ll see if we can reach all the countries of the world!

We've got a huge task ahead of us to try to get a card from every country, so I thought I would try the direct approach in each relevant sub, and see if I can connect with some kind people out there. This is an excellent opportunity for us to learn about Belgium, too :)

Imagine the excitement of a six-year-old and her little brother when they open our post box to find your letter! And each letter will be helping them to learn about the big world out there, and about the truly wonderful people in it.

This isn't just a school project any longer - through receiving letters from people around the world we can start to connect our children with the many, many wonderful people out there and start to build some better understanding

If you would like to help out please message me and I'll happily give you our address; Thank you so much in advance.

ThΓ©a, Samuel and Adam

So what's the state of communism in your country? In Belgium we have a small communist party that want to tax the rich for 1% and want free wifi and free public transportation, increase the minimum wage. Do you have a communist party? Or do you vote for socalists due to lack of better options?

I live in Belgium and we have a small communist party with just 2 years ago politicians in all governments regional and federal. They even have someone for the first time in the european parliament now. They want free wifi, free public transportation and increase the minimum wage to € 14 / hour. They want to pay all that with a tax on the super rich of 1%. That would make up for 8 billion. They went to court and won because the government wanted the people to pay a tax to fund the solar panels. The communist party won that and people now pay €100 less each year. Our communist leader wrote a book 'They've forgotten about us', it's about the working class. It got a lot of media attention and they have a lot of people who follow their facebook page. They have a spokesman who's perfectly bilingual. My friend who isn't a communist called him a beast. He's right he says. I've never been to their protests and I am not a member. But I'm going to buy a t shirt from them with a feminist slogan and I'll put a poster of the party on my front windows. I have to admit in my teenager years I had a flag of the USSR hanging in my room. So what's the state of communism in your country? Do you have a communist party? What do they want to change? Our leader is pretty charismatic. If there's no communist party in your country, do you vote for socialists? Thanks!

Palestinian YouTube stars harass Jews in Belgium

The latest example of antisemitism at the hands of Middle Eastern immigrants in Europe comes from Belgium. Two Palestinian twins, asylum seekers from Gaza, had decided that antisemitic harassment of Hasidic communities is hilarious. Harassing Jews for being Jews gives the giggles to the 10 million followers of the twins, who’ve liked the video.

Riding rollers through a Jewish quarter guarded by the Belgic military, due to repeated violent attacks by Muslim immigrants (most notably two terror attacks by Islamic state followers in the last few years) and carrying Palestinian flags they’ve decided to skate over to the β€œJewish neighbourhood” and storm random Jews, which they’ve successfully identified through their traditional Hasidic garb. Genius...

Cycling up aggressively towards unsuspecting Hasidic Jews minding their own business in their own neighbourhood, the 2 Gazans stormed Hasidic Jews with cameras, demanding they proclaim their loyalty to Palestine. At times they were filmed pushing random Hasidic men... Nothing to see there. Nearly every Jewish looking man in Europe has been randomly pushed or spat on by a passerby.

The embarrassed Hasidic Jews, who don’t even speak English and who’re not Zionist, sheepishly turned them down. Unfortunately, such dehumanising harassment is too common for these poor people. But no matter how many times they’re publicly mocked, murdered, spat on or beaten by their neighbours, antisemitic humiliation is something they’ll never get used to, despite being a daily occurrence that’s been closely woven into their daily lives (for centuries).

This expression of antisemitism was relatively benign. The Palestinian trolls were generally non violent. Except recklessly skating at high speed towards teenage Jewish girls coming back from synagogue and ramming into a Hasidic man, they hardly physically attacked anyone. So the Belgium Jewish community’s response to the incident was relatively subdued. The authorities, of course, do nothing. The Palestinians had passed through Belgium army patrols without even raising an eyebrow. This is a sad state of affairs for Europe that blatant racist harassment merits such soft response. Unfortunately, the Belgium Jewish community is so used to violence and terrorism, that semi violent antisemitism just doesn’t cut it.

At this point, only actual murder and assault of Jews merit attention. Note that even in cases of violence by Muslims targeting Jews in Europe, the benefit of the doubt
