(Before It's News)

Physiognomy (from the Gk. physis meaning “nature” and gnomon meaning “judge” or “interpreter”) is the assessment of a person’s character or personality from his or her outer appearance, especially the face. The term can also refer to the general appearance of a person, object, or terrain, without reference to its implied characteristics, as in the physiognomy of a plant community.

And why have I recalled this dead pseudo-science? Just because the article on Arutz 7 site* contained a nice picture of the above mentioned minister.


Besides being a nice picture, nothing in it forewarns the reader. No signs of an onset of dementia or any malicious intent or… anyway, a nice man is all one can say looking at this shot. The article, however, tells an amazing story.

When asked how it was possible that the terrorist network which was behind the attacks in Brussels, could hide for a long time in the heart of Brussels, Jambon replied: “Someone who is hiding and receiving support from the population, can remain hidden a long time.”

Jambon, who is a member of the New Flemish Alliance, continued to compare the terrorists to the Jews who hid here during the Nazi occupation: “There are Jewish people who went into hiding for years… and (the Nazi) regime never found them.”

Now go figure it out. A nice looking man, a minister to boot – and such a moron?

Tell me what you want, but for me it is the last straw.

Physiognomy – you are totally out.

So there.
