As Refugees Spread, Muslim No-Go Zones Become More Common
Remember back in January when Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal was savaged by the DC Media for criticizing the existence of European neighborhoods that the police have no control over — what are called “No-Go Zones”?
Remember left-wing CNN blasting Jindal as a bigot for 24 hours over this, even though CNN had itself previously reported on Europe’s No-Go Zones?
Well, now no less than The New York Times is back to reporting the truth about the problems with Europe’s Muslim No-Go Zones.
Of course, although it has in the past, the Times is no longer using the term “No-Go Zone.”:
Belgian Minister Says Government Lacks Control Over Neighborhood Linked to Terror Plots.
Belgium’s home affairs minister said that the government does not “have control of the situation in Molenbeek,” a working-class neighborhood of Brussels that has been linked to several terrorism plots in recent years.
Speaking on the VRT television channel on Sunday, the minister, Jan Jambon, said that the government would “step up efforts” to bring order to the area of the Belgian capital.
According to the UK Independent the Belgian neighborhood in question, Molenbeek, is not only a Mulsim No-Go-Zone, it was home to the brother of one of the Paris suspects — and two of the gunmen:
Most Belgians were stunned to hear that police had raided addresses in Brussels and arrested suspects, less than 24 hours after the Paris attacks.
However, few were surprised to hear that the swoops took place in Molenbeek, a run-down east Brussels commune that has long been a magnet for jihadists, gangs, drugs and lawlessness.
Perhaps with good reason: Molenbeek has been connected to almost all of Belgium’s terrorism-related incidents in recent years. Moroccan national Ayoub el-Khazzani, who opened fire with a Kalashnikov on a high-speed Thalys train in August had lived in Molenbeek. French-Algerian Mehdi Nemmouche, who killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last year, spent time in the area. And the two suspected terrorists killed by Belgian police in a shootout in the eastern town of Verviers in January were from Molenbeek.
As well as being home to many ethnic Moroccans and Turks, Molenbeek is also one of the country’s poorest areas. It has a 30 per cent unemployment rate, and one in four of its 95,000 inhabitants does not have a Belgian passport. Like gang violence, Islamic radicalism has fed on Molenbeek’s marginalisation, despair and festering resentment of authority. Police say the most dangerous among around 30 Brussels gangs come from Molenbeek.
In summation: Muslim No-Go Zones do exist in Europe. Going back more than a decade, DC Media outlets like the AP, NBC, CNN and New York Times have been reporting on these Muslim No-Go Zones.
