JE SUIS F*CK OFF: Well, Europeans were murdered so I guess this terror attack matters on social media…never does when it’s Israelis

Thousands of people are using the hashtag #jesuisbruxelles to show solidarity with Brussels and the dozens of people killed or wounded in today’s deadly terror attacks.


Repeating the French ‘Je suis’ phrase that became a hallmark of support for France in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, some 80,000 people have now used it to send their support to Belgium.

Many of these are in the form of illustrations or cartoons in the Belgium national colours next to the French tricolour.

One showed the flags of France and Belgium standing together as the French illustration labelled ’13 Novembre’ – the date of the Paris attacks – places its arm around its Belgian companion.
Many were simply love hearts drawn in the distinctive Belgian colours of red, black and yellow, while others had ribbons inset.

Another showed the legendary Belgian creation Tintin crying a solitary tear. The caption read: La belgique pleure ses enfants, which translates to ‘Belgium weeps for her children’.

The French ‘Je suis’ hashtag first gained international popularity in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks on January 15 last year.

It again resurfaced following the Paris attacks in November, when ISIS terrorists murdered 130 people in coordinated gun and suicide bomb attacks.

In the wake of the two atrocities, thousands attended rallies carrying placards bearing the phrase, while it was also used on social media as a focal point for tributes.
