I once had a very bizarre encounter with a woman in a bar in Brussels. She come up to me and bought me a drink (bizarre enough in itself, for me) and, after some general conversation, started up a tirade about how Belgium was being over-run by immigrants, how muslims could never assimilate, how terribly muslim men (an ex-boyfriend included) treated women and so on and so on.

Well, nothing out of the ordinary there, you might think, but not only was this woman herself unquestionably (by her appearance) of north African origin, she was actually wearing a hijab! I made my excuses and left after a couple of drinks, not wanting to find myself in some kind of Fatal Attraction type of situation.
