“No-go areas” once ridiculed by media revealed as source of Paris massacre plot
Muslim ghettos in France and Belgium which security experts warn are being radicalized and flooded with weapons could be the source of more terror attacks in Europe.
Reports are emerging today that authorities in Belgium carried out a heavily armed raid against suspected Islamists in Molenbeek, which is notorious for being a Muslim “no-go” area despite the mass media’s insistence that such places don’t exist.
As the New York Times reports, Belgium’s home affairs minister has acknowledged that the government does not “have control of the situation in Molenbeek,” which has been the source of numerous jihadist plots. The Independent reports that Molenbeek is a “police no-go zone that was home to two of the gunmen.”
Certain areas of Paris have also been labeled Muslim “no-go” zones since the 2005 riots, although when terror expert Steven Emerson made such a reference after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, he was ridiculed in the media and the Mayor of Paris sued Fox News over the remarks.
But in the aftermath of Friday’s devastating massacre, the threat of such ghettos being radicalized by jihadists must be treated as a primary concern by authorities.
Just a few months ago, it was revealed that the French Army is making contingency plans for the “reappropriation of national territory,” winning back areas of cities, in the event of immigrant populations obtaining weapons and becoming openly hostile to authorities.
“There are a lot of alienated and angry fourth-generation immigrant kids in the suburbs and the prospect of radicalisation is increasingly likely,” an intelligence source told the Telegraph, adding that highly organized networks of Islamist militants have smuggled Kalashnikov automatic rifles and anti-tank missiles into the country via Libyan jihadists.
The source warned that such groups could rise up and stage mass civil unrest just as they did during the Paris riots, only this time with far more deadly consequences.
France has the highest Muslim population in Europe, which also goes some way to explain a shocking poll which found that a staggering 15 per cent of French citizens had a positive view of ISIS, with 27 per cent of people aged 18-24 expressing support for the terrorist outfit.
Meanwhile, in Germany, the flood of Muslim migrants is in turn causing the middle class to become “radicalized,” security experts have warned Angela Merkel, with the potential for civil unrest brewing.
With these two flash points threatening to come to a head, the likelihood of new terror attacks being plotted from within radicalized immigrant communities represents a damning indictment of the policy of multiculturalism and mass immigration, which increasingly appears to have been a dangerous failure.
