This week, Muslim terrorists made the news in their typical bloody way. The latest mini-war in France came to a bloody end yesterday. Casualties numbered twenty: seventeen Kaffirs (eleven editors, cartoonists, and other staff of a weekly specializing in satirical cartoons, two police officers, and four Jewish shoppers) and three mujaheddin (the notorious Kouachi Brothers and their accomplice, Amedy Coulibaly). But the mainstream media, except for one American outlet and her sister outlet in the United Kingdom, lost one vital element. The Kouachi Brothers, and Monsieur Coulibaly, could never have done what they did, but for a new feature of French civil life: no-go zones.
What are no-go zones?
Wikipedia (“The Free Encyclopedia”) today best defines no-go zones. (Note: the editorial committee of Wikipedia threatens to remove the article unless anyone “[cites] reliable sources.”) A no-go zone, or no-go area, according to Wikipedia,
a region where the ruling authorities have lost control and are unable to enforce their sovereignty.
The particular Wikipedians who so define the term, draw on the revolutions in South Africa and Zimbabwe (once Rhodesia). As the fighting wore on, rebel forces took over spots or tracts of land, until at last they had it all. By that logic, the Islamic State holds sway over many “no-go zones” in Iraq and Syria.
But the worthies at Wikipedia do not define “no-go zones” completely. CNAV would like to add: Any region of any country, over which the authorities have ceded control and relinquished sovereignty, either at their own will or to acknowledge armed conquest for any reason whatever, becomes a no-go zone to that authority.
The Wikipedians gave the concept “no-go zone” these elements: loss of control, relinquishment of sovereignty, and military conquest. But the concept needs no elements other than loss of control and relinquishment of sovereignty. Once one defines “no-go zones” this way, one realizes the world has “no-go zones” in many places beyond Iraq and Syria. (South Africa and Zimbabwe do not count any more. They who seized the original no-go zones became the authorities.)
Where can one find no-go zones?
Muslims set up no-go zones easily. They move into a neighborhood, or a city quarter, in large numbers. They enhance those numbers through simple breeding. (Muslims have higher birth rates than their non-Muslim co-residents in all Western lands.) They then demand that the police not enter those quarters without first asking permission from the local cleric. And: the authorities accede to this demand.
Western authorities have known about no-go zones for more than three years. The Gatestone Institute studied no-go zones in August of 2011, or three years and five months ago. They found:
Many of the no-go zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services.
How did this happen? The Gatestone Institute blames
decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations.
“Multiculturalism” demands “respect” of cultures other than the dominant one. Multiculturalism weakens the glue that holds societies together. Darius III, emperor of Persia, could testify to that. His multicultural empire lost to the unicultural Greco-Macedons under Alexander the Great.
Gatestone described in detail no-go zones across Britain, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Holland, and Sweden. The French experience gives the best instruction. As of July of 2010, French authorities listed seven hundred fifty-one “Sensitive Urban Zones” where the police dare not go on patrol. Twelve of these zones lie inside the city limits of Paris. During the recent terrorist drama in France, the Kouachi Brothers were trying to drive into a no-go zone when the Gendarmes got too close and chased them into the print shop where they finally shot it out. That drama might not be over yet had they made that escape.
No-go zones in the United States
Yes, the United States also has no-go zones in its territory. Many of these lie along the U.S.-Mexican Border and belong to the “drug cartels.” At the “turn of the century” (meaning from the nineteenth to the twentieth), Pancho Villa controlled a no-go zone.
Today, independent investigators know of thirty-five armed camps, in rural or near-wilderness regions, where Muslims not only live but train in terror tactics. WND broke that story three years ago. And the FBI did nothing.
Besides those thirty-five camps, at least three urban regions almost qualify as no-go zones:
- Dearborn, Michigan.
- Paterson, New Jersey (with Arabic street signs)
- The Muslim quarter of Jersey City, New Jersey, between Journal Square and New Jersey City University.
Northern Virginia has drawn a large Muslim population. If that region does not have no-go zones yet, it may within a year.
What shall we do about it?
Authorities everywhere must recognize: an irregular Muslim army has invaded their territory. As surely as Zimbabwean rebels seized control of lands in the former Rhodesia, so have these Muslims seized control in the lands where they live. They never meant to assimilate into the host culture. The Koran and the Hadiths tell them to respect no culture but Islam. They consider all other cultures inherently evil and weak. When authorities cede control, Muslims win a no-go zone without firing a shot in anger.
This week, at least three terrorists staged out of one or more no-go zones in and around Paris. They killed seventeen non-Muslims before the Gendarmes killed them. (The fourth named suspect might have fled to Syria even before the Kourachis fired their first shots.)
The French have arrived at a moment of truth, for themselves and their society. As George C. Scott memorably said in Dr. Strangelove (1964), truth is not always a pleasant thing. But one of two things will happen:
- The Gendarmes will move into those no-go zones, ignore the “sensibility” of these “urban zones,” and tell the local clerics either to accept the government presence, or leave. Or:
- France will become the French Emirate of the New Baghdad Caliphate.
The British, the Belgians, the Dutch, the Germans, the Italians, and the Swedes will all have to decide similarly. So will we Americans. Our country cannot tolerate thirty-five armed camps, and three independent Muslim city-states (and perhaps more suburb-states in Northern Virginia) and still call itself sovereign.
The adherents of no other religion demand no-go zones for themselves. The closest thing to that happened when the Jewish leaders of Tenafly, New Jersey, tried to string an eruv, or cloth Sabbath-journey border, around the town. They sought only to define any point within Tenafly as a Sabbath-day’s journey from any other. The city fathers refused. Yet authorities let Muslims set up zones where police may not enter? (Note: the Third Circuit Court of Appeals held the Borough of Tenafly could forbid the eruv if it wanted. But it could not forbid the eruv while at the same time letting people attach other things to the town’s utility poles.)
Selective cession of control and relinquishment of sovereignty define no-go zones. A country kills itself slowly by doing this. The Charlie’s Weekly incident should warn everyone: reclaim these no-go zones, or cede your whole country.
In closing let us remember what Charles de Gaulle said about the Germans declaring a no-go zone in his country:
TO ALL THE FRENCH!
France has lost a battle!
But she has not lost the war!
Some that have happened into governing positions may have capitulated, ceding to panic, forgetting honour, delivering the country to servitude. However, nothing is lost!
Nothing is lost, because this war is a world war. In the free universe, immense forces have yet to get into the fray. One day, those forces will crush the enemy. That day, France must be there for victory. Then she will find her liberty and her greatness again. Such is my goal, my only goal!
This is why I invite all Frenchmen, wherever they may be, to join me in action, in sacrifice, and in hope.
Our motherland is in lethal danger. Let us all fight to save her!
LONG LIVE FRANCE!
General de Gaulle
