No-go Zones

On January 7th 2015 several people left their homes in France and travelled into central Paris. They then proceeded to shoot dead a dozen people.  By the time the shooting had finished a couple of days later nearer two dozen people were dead.

Shortly afterwards a man was introduced to the viewers of Fox News called Steve Emerson.  He was presented as an expert on terrorism.  This is his Wikipedia entry. His organisation is called “Investigative Project on Terrorism“.  now you would think that he looks at all sorts of terrorism, but that’s not the case. He majors – or targets – on terrorism perpetrated by Muslims.    His organisation does comment on other matters, but is quick to turn the discussion onto its favourite target: Muslims.  Take a look at this article on the far right terrorist Anders Breivek.

So this “expert” on terrorism went on TV and spoke:

So: there are no-go zones in Europe, and Birmingham is a 100% Muslim area where non-Muslims don’t go.

The evidence for his claims is non-existent, and within hours Fox News was subjected to ridicule.

Here is an article on the demographics of Birmingham.

I know from personal experience that there are no no-go areas in Birmingham, or even East London.  After several days of ridicule, and a fierce defence of the truth by those people who know a pack of lies when they see it Fox News backed down and apologised.

So, you would think that the far-right would lay off a little.  They got it wrong.  They should move on.  Hell, no.  This week another American, Bobby Jindal made the same claim:

Note here that in spite of questioning Jindal was not able to specify a single no-go zone.

Here’s another video where Jindal refuses to come up with evidence to substantiate his claims:

So, we have far right Americans making claims that they can’t substantiate. And yet they are still defending those claims, like a broken record, they can’t accept that they are wrong and move on.  Take a look at this article:

Let’s take a look at one of their claims:

The Rotherham, England, child sex scandal offers a powerful example. An official inquiry found that for sixteen years, 1997-2013, a ring of Muslim men sexually exploited – through abduction, rape, gang rape, trafficking, prostitution, torture – at least 1,400 non-Muslim girls as young as 11. The police received voluminous complaints from the girls’ parents but did nothing; they could have acted, but chose not to.

According to the inquiry, “the Police gave no priority to CSE [child sexual exploitation], regarding many child victims with contempt and failing to act on their abuse as a crime.” Even more alarming, in some cases, “fathers tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused, only to be arrested themselves when police were called to the scene.” Worse, the girls “were arrested for offences such as breach of the peace or being drunk and disorderly, with no action taken against the perpetrators of rape and sexual assault against children.”

Counter Jihad Report claim that some criminal activity by a group of people actually constitutes the creation of a no-go zone.  Why else would they mention it?  But could paedophile activity happen in America? Worse still could the people perpetrating the criminal activity create a no-go zone where the authorities were concerned that they risked their lives if they entered? Yes indeed.

This was a cult headed by a paedophile called David Koresh, an American who happened to be…? Yup, guessed it – Christian.
