Eurabian Safari--Non-Muslims Forced to Follow Sharia in Europe
Hudson New York ^ | August 27, 2009 | Thomas Landen

Posted on 08/27/2009 1:21:25 PM PDT by Ooh-Ah

It is hot in Brussels. Ramadan has begun. The faithful in the predominantly Muslim borough of Molenbeek are not allowed to eat or drink from sunrise until sunset. Non-Muslim policemen, patrolling the streets of Molenbeek in their sweltering cars, are not allowed to eat or drink either. As every year during Ramadan, that they have been told by their superior, Philippe Moureaux, the Socialist mayor of Molenbeek, they have to respect Muslim sensitivities and not to “provoke” Muslims by violating Islamic Ramadan restrictions in public. In effect, Islamic or Sharia law is already applied - for everyone - in the Muslim areas of Brussels.

Barely two miles from Molenbeek lies Brussels’ European district. One of its huge glass and concrete buildings is the European Parliament where the elected representatives from the 27 members states of the European Union (EU) convene. The 736 MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) have just returned from their summer break. They are mostly unaware of life in Molenbeek. Most of them never go to that part of the city. It is probably a sensible decision, because Molenbeek is known to be unsafe for non-Muslims. Nevertheless, it is a shame that Europe’s politicians are unaware of day-to-day life just around the corner. It means that most of the 736 MEPs, who make up the second largest democratically elected assembly in the world (after India), do not know what life really is like in an ever growing section of Europe’s urban areas. A walking tour of Molenbeek should be compulsory for every MEP.

Some friends in Brussels organize one-hour trips through Molenbeek. They go in an inconspicuous car, driven by a local who knows the escape routes, and with a bodyguard. Otherwise the risk would be too great. These trips are called “safaris.” Similar “Eurabia Safaris” are organized in other European cities. One of the highlights - though absolutely not the most dangerous one - of the safari in Rosengaard, the Muslim section of the Swedish city of Malmö, is a short stop, to give the visitor the opportunity to take a quick snapshot, in front of Malmö’s “Jihadskörkortsteori” (Jihad Driving School).

The Sharia areas of Europe are expanding rapidly across Western Europe. While currently still restricted to what the French officially call the ZUS (zones urbaines sensibles - sensitive urban areas) these areas are growing fast. Even today, eight million of the sixty million inhabitants of France already live in one of the country’s 751 ZUS.

The month of Ramadan is traditionally the most dangerous time of the year in Europe’s sensitive areas. After sunset, the Ramadan ban on eating, drinking and engaging in sexual activities expires until the following sunrise. Ramadan is a period of nightly feasts for Muslims. Young Muslims are extremely touchy. These feasts easily spill over into nightly spasms of mayhem, vandalism, and violence. Europe’s Ramadan riots often go on for days or weeks, during which hundreds of cars, shops and public buildings are set on fire.

In Muslim countries, such as Indonesia, the police step up patrols during Ramadan in order to crack down on illegal nightly activities. In Europe, however, the police have been given orders to adopt an extra-low profile not to “provoke” Muslim populations. In countries such as Britain, police officers have had to attend “Ramadan awareness” courses. They have even been ordered, “for reasons of religious sensitivity,” to avoid the execution of arrest warrants for Muslims during the month of Ramadan. During Ramadan, Europe is a tinder box.

The most widely reported Ramadan riots so far, which were even covered by the American press, took place in France in 2005. Since the 2005 riots, the French authorities have asked the media not to report about waves of violent unrest in the ZUS - a request which the media seem to have followed. During the 2005 Ramadan riots, several sociologists suggested that polygamy was one of the reasons for the large-scale rioting in Muslim communities among youths who lack a father figure. This theory seemed to have impressed France’s political leaders. Gérard Larcher, then France’s employment minister and currently the president of the French Senate, explained to the Financial Times (Nov. 15, 2005) that multiple marriages among immigrants lead to anti-social behavior, such as criminal activity. Bernard Accoyer, a leading parliamentarian of France’s governing UMP and currently the president of the French National Assembly (France’s Congress), said that children from large polygamous families have problems integrating into mainstream society.

As the Financial Times warned, however, at the time, “Mr Larcher’s comments could further fuel the debate and are likely to outrage Muslim and anti-racism groups.” Apparently, the French government was of the same opinion; it did not follow-up the words of Messrs. Larcher and Accoyer with a clampdown on polygamy. Having multiple wives is illegal under French law, but is allowed under Islamic Sharia law. It is estimated that 30,000 French Muslims have more than one wife and that more than 250,000 people live in polygamous families.

The tolerance of polygamous Sharia marriages is not restricted to France. In Norway, the Islamic Cultural Center Norway (ICCN), an immigrant organization subsidized by the Norwegian state, advises Muslims to take several wives because polygamy “is advantageous and ought to be practised where conditions lend themselves to such practice.” In Britain legislators adopt an equally liberal approach towards polygamy for Muslim men, allowing tax breaks for their second, third and fourth wives. Last February, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, a Conservative Peer of Muslim origin, warned that the growing numbers of Muslim men marrying up to four wives in Britain, is becoming a threat to community cohesion. In the Netherlands, the authorities officially register polygamous marriages by non-Dutch citizens from Morocco, Egypt, Pakistan and other Muslim countries. The Amsterdam municipal authorities admitted that they have even registered Dutch citizens (of Islamic origin) with multiple wives. Belgium, too, recognizes polygamous Islamic marriages. Only last month, the welfare department of the city of Antwerp announced that 45 welfare recipients have two or more spouses.

Polygamous immigrants abuse the social security system by collecting state benefits for several wives. In France, residence is only granted to polygamous families if the two wives do not live at the same address, which means that these families claim double social housing, family allowances and other social benefits.

The recognition of polygamous marriages of Muslims in countries where polygamy used to be illegal - and still is illegal for non-Muslims - indicates that Sharia law is already accepted in these countries. They have implicitly accepted a system of “legal apartheid” with different legal systems for Muslims and non-Muslims. The decision to avoid arresting Muslims during Ramadan “for reasons of religious sensitivity,” thereby treating Muslims and non-Muslims differently, confirms this existence of a dual legal system. It is difficult to see, however, how such a dual legal system can continue to exist on the same territory. Ultimately, one of the legal systems is likely to prevail. The decision of the Molenbeek mayor that non-Muslim police officers have to respect the Ramadan prescriptions indicates what the next step will be if Europe’s authorities fail to impose the existing laws of the land on Islamic immigrants: the imposition of Sharia law on everyone, non-Muslims as well as Muslims. While Europe’s Muslims hold their Ramadan, this is something worth pondering for Europe’s non-Muslims.

Don’t provoke the members of the Cult of Death. Do whatever they want. How about sharpening a few machete blades? They like them. How about asking for a few volunteer infidels to try out the blades? After all, let’s not provoke them. Let’s do whatever they ask.

The UK has been dragged into madness by its socialist politicians.

Statement: "Eurabian Safari--Non-Muslims Forced to Follow Sharia in Europe"

Response: Of course.

Comment: Given the spiritual sickness-(I don't mean "The Old Time Religion")-that has spread over Europe and America one would expect nothing less. Just wait until the mass conversions begin-all it will take is one celebrity converting at the proper moment and millions will follow.

Ah, polygamy. Having your herd. Even better if the herd is supported by some generous European government. And if you kill them when they try to escape, hey, you can get another one.

Where are the women’s organizations on this one? Islam seems to trump human rights, European civilization, or any sanity that may still exist in the world.

While stationed in Jeddah in 1980, my office had a black TSGT TDY for a couple of months. He was there during ramadan. Late one afternoon, he was driving back to the apartment after work. He pulled up to a red light, and while stopped, he lit up a cigarette. A Saudi in a car next to him jumped out and began to berate my man and shake his fist in his face. I mentioned his race only because the Saudis just assumed that since he was black, he was probably a Sudanese or from Chad, and therefore a moslem. Fortunately for the Saudi the light changed and he was spared a good old Air Force a$$-whipping.

Was all the warrior blood drained out of Europe in the 20th century?

I don’t know.

There are rumblings among the populace.

We shall see how much of this guff they can take. So far, it has been a LOT.

The way things are going here we are not far behind.

From what I've seen on the net about Michigan amongst other areas, I was thinking the same thing,

FWIW, I live near to some Muslim Communities here in the UK, and relating back to the article, I have to admit, that apart from the apartheid led allotment of State housing, and the complete lack of a desire to integrate [completely purported by Government pressure for them NOT to adapt, which is the root of the problem], you wouldn't know that Ramadan is happening.

To summarise, it's the same 'multicultural' [I use that objectionable oxymoron with regret] craphole that it usually is down there, there's never any trouble over and above what there usually is, just the same degraded, Third World image of what once was an affluent, clean and wonderful part of our city.

I'll take some photo's next time I drive into town, they'll better show you all exactly what I'm trying to describe.

IDK but I'd bet the most popular name for boy babies in England is Mohammed.

Much like yourselves they will take *anything* so long as they have no leader who is prepared to stand up against the leftists/foreigners. Most people don’t even know that these things are happening.

There have been several instances of people fighting the muslims. But when they do they are instantly villified for defending themselves or their communities by both politicians and press. And just as on your side of the pond no ‘conservative’ politician will speak on their behalf or take up their cause...

To take an example from Norway. Whe have elections coming up in a few weeks. A few weeks ago the meida reported on efforts to allow policewomen to wear the hijab with their uniform. The Progress Party (FrP-the local conservative party) instantly surged ahead 8% in the polls as ordinary Norwegians reacted with disgust. Clearly a winning issue for the FrP, but they make no real attempt to capitalize on it.

In another recent incident a couple of 6-year olds were pushed by their teacher to wear burkas just like the muslim girls in their class (these girls go to a majority muslim school, poor things). The school sent letters home to the parents asking if the children could be given burkas and the press reported on it briefly. But rather than making an issue of it and demanding the head of the school administrator and the teacher the FrP did nothing at all. No attempt to call people’s attention the growing influence of sharia, no attempt to mobilize people and voters in defense of Norwegian values. They make no effort to drive the public debate or influence what people feel is important. Unsurprisingly the mass-migration has been a non-issue in the debates and they haven’t even called attention to how the leftist journalists have been allowed to decide the subjects for the debates.

Equally unsurprising, the FrP is now down to 22% from around 30% support. They’ll have my vote (lesser evil and all that), but only until they betray us by abandoning their resistance to the muslim takeover. And I have no doubt that they will.

Sadly, I believe you are correct.

Your FrP sounds like our RINO-infested Republican Party.

Cowards.

We will pray for your country. We will pray for Scandinavia and Europe.

We have enjoyed Apostolic Lutheran preachers from Norway in our mostly-Finnish Apostolic Lutheran churches.

ZUS. Has the unfortunate - or apt? - coincidence of sounding a bit like 'zoos' in English.

Even today, eight million of the sixty million inhabitants of France already live in one of the country’s 751 ZUS.

13%. And growing. I've always wanted to visit Europe, I guess I'd better hurry before I need a male relative escort and a burqa.
