es, that's right, not even police, fire, or ambulances should go to these Muslim-controlled areas of France. These areas are occupied by about 8 % of the population, or 5 million people. They are called Zones Urbaines Sensibles in French, meaning Sensitive Urban Zones.

re, "nobody dares to speak for fear of reprisals."The French government announced a plan to boost policing in 15 of the most crime-ridden parts of France in an effort to reassert state control over the country's so-called "no-go" zones: Muslim-dominated neighbourhoods that are largely off limits to non-Muslims.The crime-infested districts, which the French Interior Ministry has designated as Priority Security Zones (or ZSP), include heavily Muslim parts of Paris, Marseilles, Strasbourg, Lille and Amiens, where Muslim youths recently went on a two-day arson rampage.The crackdown in the ZSP is set to begin in September, when French Interior Minister Valls plans to deploy riot police, detectives and intelligence agents into the areas. The initial 15 ZSP are: Seine-Saint-Denis, Paris, les Yvelines, l'Essonne, la Somme (Amiens), Lille, Méru et Chambly, Fameck et Uckange, le Bas-Rhin (Strasbourg), Lyon IXe, Gardanne et Bouc-Bel-aire, Marseille IIIe, XIIIe, XIVe, XVe et XVIe, Vauvert et Saint-Gilles, Lunel et Mauguio, and la Guyane (Cayenne, Matoury, Remire-Montjoly).Many of these new ZSP coincide with Muslim neighborhoods that previous French governments have considered to be Sensitive Urban Zones. (or ZUS) -- also "no-go" zones for French police.So far, a total of 751 Sensitive Urban Zones (ZUS), can be found on a French government website. An estimated five million Muslims live in the ZUS – Areas where the French state has lost control.Consider Seine-Saint-Denis, a notorious northern suburb of Paris, and home to an estimated 500,000 Muslims. 36 of the 40 districts in Seine-Saint-Denis are official "no-go" zones.Seine-Saint-Denis, known as "Department 93", witnessed fierce rioting by Muslim youths in 2005, when they torched more than 9,000 cars. Home to one of the highest rates of violent crime in France. On the list is Amiens. In August, 100 Muslim youths rampaged after police arrested a man for driving without a license. Muslims viewed the arrest as "insensitive" due to a funeral in the area. Police were called to an estate in Amiens after reports that youths were loading fireworks into a car. Police discovered the ingredients for petrol bombs, including empty bottles and a canister of gasoline.150 policemen and anti-riot police were deployed to the Fafet neighborhood and used tear gas, rubber bullets and even mobilized a helicopter after Muslim youths shot at them with buckshot, fireworks and other projectiles from nine in the evening until four in the morning.This part of Amiens is home to mostly Muslim immigrants from former French colonies such as Algeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Mali, Morocco and Tunisia. Unemployment in the riot-hit part of Amiens runs at 45%. On August 14, two local imams in Bagatelle organized a march through the streets calling on the youths to stop the violence said, "it looks as if we are in Bosnia or Afghanistan, not Mirail."In July 2009, Muslim youths torched more than 300 cars across France after the suicide death of an Algerian youth held in police custody on charges of extortion.In 2005, thousands of Muslim youths French cities went on a rampage after 2 young men in a Paris suburb were electrocuted entering an electric power substation while fleeing from police. Riots have affected 274 towns and cities across France, and resulted in more than €200 million in property damage. The French government declared a "three-month state of emergency."The full story can be found here…

DEARBORN – AMERICA’S FIRST “NO-GO”ZONE
DEARBORN IS NOW – “OCCUPIED TERRITORY.”
Dearborn, a formerly bright light of American cities, currently the home of the Ford Motor Company and a city President Obama believes is the perfect example of Muslim assimilation, has now officially become America’s first NO-GO ZONE.
Read what counter-terrorism expert Clare Lopez wrote in Radicalislam.org:
“This incident crystallized in a single afternoon what happens when a sovereign nation relinquishes legal control of portions of its territory. So-called “No Go Zones” have become ominously commonplace across Europe: These are places that are effectively off-limits not only to non-Muslims but to the law enforcement and security forces of the country as well. In France, they go by the anodyne name of “Zones Urbaines Sensibles” (ZUS).”

lam is NOT a Religion. Islam (Muhammadan style) is a CULT belief system, the CULT of Muhammad, which is founded on two pillars: Muhammad’s Quran and Muhammad’s Sunna (together) called Sharia.
As objectionable as the following may be to the mostly ignorant Politically Correct people, Muhammad, his Quran, his Sunna, Sharia and his Fundamentalist followers are Hatemongering, Warmongering, Misogynist, Racist, Mendacious, Disloyal, Vile and hence are truly UNGODLY.
Anyone disagreeing with the above should at least have the decency to find fault with my statements based on KNOWLEDGE before condemning me.
All anyone needs to do is Google “The Charter of Umar” or listen to Chapter 26 on “The Idiots’ Guide to Islam” by Googling ‘al rassooli’ or feast one’s self at www.memri.org watching thousands from ‘the horse’s mouth’ live videos by Muslims on Islam that will oscillate one between extremes of Fear and Laughter.
Ladies and gentlemen, Obama, Hillary and this administration have caused more harm, damage and disunity to the USA and the American people than any other administration in the history of the Republic.
Obama’s electioneering platform was to unite and bring Americans together. Tragically, Obama has deliberately and systematically caused Americans to be divided economically, racially, culturally, religiously and politically. He is, as we speak, reducing the most Exceptional country in history to the level of a Socialist Banana Republic and most Americans are not even realising it.
This administration has allowed the radical Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the very organizations that are supposed to protect the American people from terror. The Obama administration has aided and abetted the very enemies of all humanity, the Muslim Brotherhood, to overthrow Gaddafi of Libya, Mubarak of Egypt, and is turning a blind eye to the overthrow of Al Assad of Syria and the kingdom of Jordan by the Muslim Brotherhood.
To add insult to injury, the Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate in Egypt - abiding to Sharia law - just declared that when he "achieves the Islamic conquest (fath) of Egypt for the second time, he will make all Christians convert to Islam, or else pay the jizya" the additional Islamic penalty tax to ransom their lives for NOT being Muslims.
There are 57 Muslim majority states in the world, not one of which is a democracy (Sharia is the NEMESIS of Democracy), ruling about 1500 million people and subjugating in humiliation, degradation and terror over 750 million females, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, etc under their control, and we do not hear a pip squeak from Obama and Hilary BUT on the contrary, they praise so-called ‘tolerant Islam’!
Dear listeners please ponder the following axiom:
“Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance.
If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant;
if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant;
then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.
We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.
That is why no nation outside Dar al Islam should allow intolerant Sharia from ever soiling the soil of our nations."
Ladies and gentlemen, the writing on the wall is crystal clear: we are heading for a Nuclear war in the Middle East in the very near future that will affect the whole world. As the Muslim Brotherhood surrounds Israel by its surrogates and clients with their publicly and repeatedly declared agenda to eradicate Israel, the unleashing of the ‘Dogs of War’ is inevitable.
Over 500 million Muslims on about 5 million square miles of territory, with millions of soldiers, thousands of aircraft, tanks and hundreds of thousands of rockets and missiles surrounding and aimed at 8000 square miles of Israel and 5.5 million Israelis are in the crosshairs of a nuclear holocaust.
Denying the FACTS I have so far brought to your attention will not change an iota from the reality of the current frightening situation, much as you and I would wish them away.

The attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions this week—beginning in Egypt and Libya, and moving to Yemen and other Muslim countries—came under cover of riots against an obscure online video insulting Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. But the mob violence and assaults should be seen for what they really are: an effort by Islamists to garner support and mobilize their base by exacerbating anti-Western sentiments.
When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to calm Muslims Thursday by denouncing the video, she was unwittingly playing along with the ruse the radicals set up. The United States would have been better off focusing on the only outrage that was of legitimate interest to the American government: the lack of respect—shown by a complaisant Egyptian government and other Islamists—for U.S. diplomatic missions.
Protests orchestrated on the pretext of slights and offenses against Islam have been part of Islamist strategy for decades. Iran's ayatollahs built an entire revolution around anti-Americanism. While the Iranian revolution was underway in 1979, Pakistan's Islamists whipped up crowds by spreading rumors that the Americans had forcibly occupied Islam's most sacred site, the Ka'aba or the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Pakistani protesters burned the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad.
Violent demonstrations in many parts of the Muslim world after the 1989 fatwa—or religious condemnation—of a novel by Salman Rushdie, or after the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005, also did not represent spontaneous outrage. In each case, the insult to Islam or its prophet was first publicized by Islamists themselves so they could use it as justification for planned violence.
Once mourning over the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and others subsides, we will hear familiar arguments in the West. Some will rightly say that Islamist sensibilities cannot and should not lead to self-censorship here. Others will point out that freedom of expression should not be equated with a freedom to offend. They will say: Just as a non-Jew, out of respect for other religious beliefs, does not exercise his freedom to desecrate a Torah scroll, similar respect should be extended to Muslims and what they deem sacred.
A street protester near the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, Sept. 13.
But this debate, as thoughtful as it may be, is a distraction from what is really going on. It ignores the political intent of Islamists for whom every perceived affront to Islam is an opportunity to exploit a wedge issue for their own empowerment.
As for affronts, the Western mainstream is, by and large, quite respectful toward Muslims, millions of whom have adopted Europe and North America as their home and enjoy all the freedoms the West has to offer, including the freedom to worship. Insignificant or unnoticed videos and publications would have no impact on anyone, anywhere, if the Islamists did not choose to publicize them for radical effect.
And insults, real or hyped, are not the problem. At the heart of Muslim street violence is the frustration of the world's Muslims over their steady decline for three centuries, a decline that has coincided with the rise and spread of the West's military, economic and intellectual prowess.
During the 800 years of Muslim ascendancy beginning in the eighth century—in Southern Europe, North Africa and much of Western Asia—Muslims did not riot to protest non-Muslim insults against Islam or its prophet. There is no historic record of random attacks against non-Muslim targets in retaliation for a non-Muslim insulting Prophet Muhammad, though there are many books derogatory toward Islam's prophet that were written in the era of Islam's great empires. Muslims under Turkey's Ottomans, for example, did not attack non-Muslim envoys (the medieval equivalent of today's embassies) or churches upon hearing of real or rumored European sacrilege against their religion.
Clearly, then, violent responses to perceived injury are not integral to Islam. A religion is what its followers make it, and Muslims opting for violence have chosen to paint their faith as one that is prone to anger. Frustration with their inability to succeed in the competition between nations also has led some Muslims to seek symbolic victories.
Yet the momentary triumph of burning another country's flag or setting on fire a Western business or embassy building is a poor but widespread substitute for global success that eludes the modern world's 1.5 billion Muslims. Violent protest represents the lower rung of the ladder of rage; terrorism is its higher form.
Islamists almost by definition have a vested interest in continuously fanning the flames of Muslim victimhood. For Islamists, wrath against the West is the basis for their claim to the support of Muslim masses, taking attention away from societal political and economic failures. For example, the 57 member states of the Organization of Islamic Conference account for one-fifth of the world's population but their combined gross domestic product is less than 7% of global output—a harsh reality for which Islamists offer no solution.
Even after recent developments that were labeled the Arab Spring, few Muslim-majority countries either fulfill—or look likely to—the criteria for freedom set by the independent group Freedom House. Mainstream discourse among Muslims blames everyone but themselves for this situation. The image of an ascendant West belittling Islam with the view to eliminate it serves as a convenient explanation for Muslim weakness.
Once the Muslim world embraces freedom of expression, it will be able to recognize the value of that freedom even for those who offend Muslim sensibilities. More important: Only in a free democratic environment will the world's Muslims be able to debate the causes of their powerlessness, which stirs in them greater anger than any specific action on the part of Islam's Western detractors.
Until then, the U.S. would do well to remember Osama bin Laden's comment not long after the Sept. 11 attacks: "When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse." America should do nothing that enables Islamists to portray the nation as the weak horse.

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them.
At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.
Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.
We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.
The 4 Freedoms
These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 1. SP Freedom of Speech Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms 2. SP Freedom of Election Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms 3. SP Freedom of Movement The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration) 4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
