People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Zakia Belkhiri, 22, a Muslim woman in Belgium, has just discovered the truth of that saying.

A week ago, Belkhiri became a social-media sensation with a sassy, self-empowering selfie she took at an anti-Muslim demonstration in Antwerp, Belgium, defiantly duckfacing in front of the 40-or-so protesters.


She told the BBC she did it

“…to show that things can be different. And that we can live together, not next to each other but with each other.”

For that no doubt beautiful message, she was celebrated as a badass, a hero, et cetera.

But now it turns out that Belkhiri isn’t entirely about living in peace and harmony. She would like to make an exception for Jews. Four years ago, on Twitter, she cheered their extermination:

Hitler didn’t kill all the Jews, he left some. So we know why he was killing them. #fuckrs

Her anti-semitism still burned brightly two years later, when she wrote on Facebook,

“Fucking Jews. I hate them so much.”
