A recent controversy on FOX News following the Islamist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has rekindled a debate over the existence of “no go” areas in France and Britain, allegedly controlled by Muslims and off-limits to whites and Christians. Those areas exist, as ample research and video evidence proves.
Daniel Pipes, president of the Middle East Forum and publisher of Middle East Quarterly, has highlighted an official French government website map for the Atlas of Sensitive Urban Zones, which lists areas the French government does not believe it has full control over. Despite the French government’s own websites defining the areas, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has threatened to sue FOX News over the “insult” of noting that the areas exist.
There are also numerous places in England considered “no-go” zones. On January 14, 2014, The London Times reported that numerous murders and rapes are not reported in these no-go zones because of local justice systems. Chief Inspector of Constabulary Tom Winsor confirmed why police officers do not respond in some neighborhoods:
There are some communities born under other skies who will not involve the police at all. I am reluctant to name the communities in question, but there are communities from other cultures who would prefer to police themselves. There are cities in the Midlands where the police never go because they are never called. They never hear of any trouble because the community deals with that on its own. It’s not that the police are afraid to go into these areas or don’t want to go into those areas. But if the police don’t get calls for help then, of course, they won’t know what’s going on.
Muslim Patrol groups often regulate no-go zones. In this video, one group can be seen taking alcohol from people and scolding women to cover their bodies:
In December 2013, a court jailed Jordan Horner, Ricardo MacFarlane, and an unnamed 23-year-old man when they attempted to enforce Sharia law in Whitechapel, east London. Horner is associated with hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who desires to bring Sharia to the United Kingdom. They told one couple to stop holding hands, since it was a Muslim area. They attacked a group of men consuming alcohol and screamed, “Kill the non-believers!” Horner posted pictures in East London that claimed alcohol is banned in the area. The vigilantes told a man to leave simply because he is gay and used slurs against him.
In October 2013, police released footage of an Asian gang attacking an American student in London. It occurred in June, but police could not find the attackers. Scotland Yard believes he was targeted because he was not a local. This also took place in Whitechapel.
In May 2013, the leader of the radical Islamic group the Sharia Project, also known as al-Muhajiroun, told a Russia Today reporter that Islam and Sharia will rule the world. The Sharia Project is banned under law in England, but the group patrols the streets of Whitechapel without resistance.
