Barbarians At The Gates Of Paris! by The Elephant's Child

By the best estimates France now has a Muslim population of 6 million or approximately 10%of its 65 million people. David Goldman suggests that “if only 1% of this population are radicalized to the point of engaging in or providing support for terrorist activities, that is a pool of 60,000 individuals.” not 60.000 bombers or shooters, but a support network that would allow a smaller number of terrorists to blend into the population.

In the suburbs of Paris there are “no-go ” zones that are ruled by Muslim gangs that can intimidate the Muslim population. “France has already lost the capacity to police a part of its territory, which means that it cannot conduct effective counter-terror operations.”

To put the 60,000 number in context ,”the whole prison population of France is less than 70,000, of whom 60% are Muslims…. France has had the toughest enforcement policy against radical Islam among the major European nations. The use of assault rifles and (reportedly) a rocket launcher in the center of Paris is a statement of contempt toward the authorities on the part of the terrorists.”

Islam is a political religion.

In contrast to Christianity, Judaism and all the other religions we know, Islam means to control every aspect of life, including both government and private life. The West, bowing to political correctness, multiculturalism and vague ideas about ‘can’t we all just get along’ does not know how to deal with Islam.

The perils of multiculturalism and open borders have reached critical mass in Sweden. There are Muslim enclaves where postal, fire and other essential services — even police officers themselves —require police protection.

A police report released last month identifies 55 of these “no-go zones” in Sweden. These zones are similar to others that have popped up in Europe in recent years. They formed as large Muslim populations emigrating to politically correct and tolerant European states refuse to assimilate and set up virtual states within a state where the authorities fear to tread.  (emphasis added)

The Swedish Police Academy is revising their curriculum to include coursework of cultural sensitivity intended to achieve “greater understanding of the intercultural perspective. Sweden will not be profiling.

Nor will there be any here. The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis has “Little Mogadishu,” home to America’s largest concentration of Somali immigrants. This neighborhood has become a recruiting ground for Islamic terrorists. CBS has reported that as many as 40 young men have joined ISIS in Iraq and Syria. A Fox affiliate in Minneapolis-St Paul reported the case of Abdirahmaan-Muhumed. Before he went to Syria, he worked for Delta Global Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Airlines. His job was to clean aircraft, and he had a security clearance that gave him unfettered access to the tarmac and passenger jets.

Political correctness and cultural sensitivity aren’t going to do it. Nor are open borders and  “amnesty.” Last week the Wall Street Journal had a fascinating piece about the uses European countries are finding for all their empty churches. We, perhaps, need to reexamine our melting-pot tradition, that welcomed immigrants from all over the world and had a remarkably successful record of assimilation — turning immigrants into proud Americans. What has changed?
