Europe: Combating Fake News, by Fjordman

Many media figures and government officials in Europe and even the US insist there are not “no-go” zones in Europe, where people who are not Islamic justifiably fear to go. These figures should be invited to walk unaccompanied, without weapons or TV crews, through these areas they deem safe. From Fjordman at gatestoneinstitute.org:

• If present demographic trends continue, in a few decades, native Swedes could easily become a minority in their own country.

• Swedish ambulance personnel want gas masks and bulletproof vests to protect their staff against the escalating attacks, similar to equipment used by staff working in war zones.

Most dangerous, however, is our inability to deal forcefully with problems undermining Western societies, because some Western media refuse to admit that the problems exist.

In January 2015 The New York Times denied that there are “no-go-zones” — areas that are not under the control of the state and are ruled according to sharia law — dominated by certain immigrant groups in some urban areas in Western Europe. The American newspaper mentioned this author, alongside writers such as Steven Emerson and Daniel Pipes, for spreading this alleged falsehood. The article was published shortly after Islamic terrorists had massacred the staff of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7, 2015. Other established media outlets such as the magazine The Atlantic also dismissed claims of no-go-zones.

Fox News issued an unusual on-air apology for allowing its anchors and guests to repeat the suggestion that there are Muslim “no-go zones” in European countries such as Britain and France.

Regarding the subject of “no-go-zones,” this is largely a question of semantics. If you say that there are some areas where even the police are afraid to go, where the country’s normal, secular laws barely apply, then it is indisputable that such areas now exist in several Western European countries. France is one of the hardest hit: it has a large population of Arab and African immigrants, including millions of Muslims.

  1. The State is no more competent at performing or facilitating the legitimate functions of government than it is at anything else, apart from self-aggrandizement, plunder and murder. This is the “problem that [is] undermining Western societies”. Metastatic Islam is merely a symptom, an opportunistic infection which could gain no hold absent the State – inadvertently and otherwise – suppressing and overwhelming individual and societal resistance; the effect of which (with or without conscious intent is irrelevant) is to foster the illusion of necessity of the
