Islamic London: "Run, Hide, Tell"
Gatestone Institute ^ | 5/2/18 | Daniel Pipes

Posted on 02/05/2018 4:25:52 AM PST by Eleutheria5

To understand the development of Islam in Western countries, I make a habit of visiting Muslim-majority areas such as Lakemba in Australia, Lodi in California, and Lunel in France. But London, England, is unique in the extent of its Islamic impress.

Muslim-majority areas typically consist of poor, unattractive housing projects, remote from the city center, which long ago were abandoned by their original indigenous, working-class populations. They often feature men sitting around cafes and women cooped up at home. They suffer from a range of social pathologies, including unemployment, criminal gangs, and drug-trafficking.

London too has such areas, and they are very large; but what makes the English capital unique is the intense Muslim presence in the very most central and expensive parts of the city, where Muslims do not constitute a majority. This presence takes two main forms.

First, there's the posh Muslim element. According to a CBRE study, Middle Easterners invested over $4.2 billion in London commercial real estate in 2015 (the most recent full year with statistics); this money tends to go into high-profile properties such as the Shard, the city's tallest building; Harrods, its most glamorous department store; Claridge's, its most luxurious hotel; and purchasing the former U.S. embassy building.

Second, the Muslim presence is implicit in the intense, pervasive, and depressing security measures installed against jihadi threats of violence. These range from signs urging "Run, Hide, Tell," to bollards, barriers, and gates.

More than any other major Western city, London bears an Arabic, Middle Eastern, and Islamic impress, from its mayor to its commercial real estate market. I wish I were optimistic about the outcome of this experiment, as the majority of the English population remain even today.

The Saudis have been all over London since at least the 70s when I was a student there. Obnoxious fat men in dirty robes pushing western women off the pavements as they swanned by. I hated them then and hate them now. They aren’t fit to travel beyond their sand-infested lands.

, I make a habit of visiting Muslim-majority areas such as Lakemba in Australia, Lodi in California

I used to pass through Lodi, CA, on my way to and from the Richard A McGee CDCR training center, on Twin Cities Road, near Galt, but that was quite awhile ago. I didn’t know there were many Muzzies there.
The last time I was in Fairfield, I was amazed at how many I saw. I see them here too, but there is a ton of them in the western provinces. I don’t go there.

I prefer the Arizona policy: STAND. SHOOT. SHUT UP. :)

Is this the London call for “DUCK and COVER”?

Free London will have a different strategy. I hope they figure it out soon:

Has Sadiq ever bothered to explain why Tokyo,one of the biggest and most prosperous cities on earth,has *never* experienced a jihadi attack?

No,I didn't think so.
