No-Go Zones.

120727_SCI_BobbyJindalEX.jpg.CROP.rectangle3-largeEarlier this year, Governor Jindal gave a speech in England;

And interesting, at the same time, popular media dispelled the “no-go” idea as a myth, and Jindal was widely criticized.
Approximately one year on, I’d venture to say that things are predictably changing – if not here, then certainly in Europe, with their mass-migration.  And Europe is a gateway to the Americas.
These zones exist and are not simply areas where one must not go.  Though those types of places exist, really, in lots of different places for lots of different reasons.  They can be areas where you would be strongly discouraged from going – implicitly, or otherwise.  And arguing over the exact definition of such a zone (Migrants, or Refugees?) misses the mark.
Because here’s where it matters, again, Andrew Mccarthy at National Review, paraphrasing Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood icon who is probably the world’s most revered sharia jurist:

To establish Islamic domination in the West, we do not need to resort to terrorism or to force non-Muslims to convert; we need merely a recognized right to resist assimilation, to regard sharia as superseding Western law and custom when the two conflict, as they do in fundamental ways.

This is precisely why the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — the bloc of 56 Muslim countries (plus the Palestinian Authority) — warned in a 2010 report on “Islamophobia” that “Muslims should not be marginalized or attempted to be assimilated, but should be accommodated.” (Here, at p. 30.)

It takes time for immigrant populations to assimilate.  That assimilation is important, historically.  But its not going to happen.  Not likely this time.  And in today’s climate of radical Islamic extremism in the context of unregulated, unenforced and outdated immigration policy, well, there’s reason for concern.  And reason to do different by our own policies.
