Bobby Jindal Says West Allows Muslims to Set Up ‘No-Go Zones’.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Some countries have allowed Muslims to establish autonomous neighborhoods in cities where they govern by a harsh version of Islamic law, Louisiana Gov. A leading US Republican governor has condemned the alleged existence of so-called Muslim “no-go zones” in Britain and western Europe during a visit to Parliament in London.“And in the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home,” the governor said in a speech in London. “It is startling to think that any country would allow, even unofficially, for a so called ‘no go zone.’” The idea of “no-go zones” went mainstream last week when Fox News guest Steve Emerson described zones where “religious police” beat those not wearing “traditional Muslim attire.” Prime Minster David Cameron called Emerson a “complete idiot” for promoting the premise and Fox News issued a correction confirming that these zones don’t actually exist. “To be clear, there is no formal designation of these zones in either country, and no credible information to support the assertion that there are specific areas in these countries that exclude individuals based solely on their religion,” Fox said in their correction. His standing is nine points higher than in December and seven points higher than in October, just before Republicans captured control of the Senate, increased their House majority to its highest level in eight decades and recorded advances in the states.

Bobby Jindal, while in Europe on Monday, blamed “political correctness” for the lack of cultural assimilation of Muslims in America and Europe. “I think it’s dangerous in America and dangerous in Europe. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, made his claims that such areas existed in British cities, even though an assertion last week by a right-wing US terrorism commentator that Birmingham was a Muslim-only city has been widely ridiculed. The Republican, who is considering a presidential campaign in 2016, later defended — and repeated — the statement after facing reporters’ questions about his claims. His comments regarding the alleged “no-go zones” came just days after Fox News corrected similar language in its broadcasts regarding Muslim enclaves in Europe. But most have shown improvement since the November elections as the president has moved aggressively and unilaterally on issues such as immigration and climate change.

Now because of political correctness, some people think it’s cultural arrogance or it’s colonial somehow to insist that people wanting to come to America should want to be Americans. He is a prominent figure in US conservative circles where there is widespread belief that western European governments have ceded control of enclaves to Muslim immigrants operating Sharia law. In Jindal’s speech, entitled “Exposing the truth about Radical Islam,” the Republican argues that “Islam has a problem” and Muslim immigrants need to work harder to assimilate into their adopted countries. “If Islam does not support what is happening in the name of Islam, then they need to stand up and stop it.

Steven Emerson, an American author who often is asked about terror networks, told Fox News that in Britain “there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in.” Jindal, however, used similar rhetoric during a speech, warning of “no-go zones” in London and other Western cities. The claims about “no-go zones” are similar to those a Fox News commentator made last week about places where non-Muslims were not welcome in the United Kingdom. They should share in the freedom of religious liberty, freedom of expression and the right to self-determination.” Jindal told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview. Jindal’s remarks come in the wake of the massacre by Islamic extremists at a Paris magazine’s offices and subsequent attack on a kosher supermarket in the city. Back on planet Earth, the “no-go zones” are as imaginary as the Tooth Fairy, Bigfoot, or the idea that Bobby Jindal could be president of the United States.

But that is no hindrance to this brave and righteous warrior, whose courage in speaking out against things that do not actually exist should be an inspiration to us all. * Nicholas Bagley reads through the Affordable Care Act and finds yet another provision making clear that the plaintiff’s argument in King v. Dionne argues that the changing Republican rhetoric on the economy shows that the GOP is finally casting off the trickle-down ideas of the 1980s. * Adam Liptak reports on a blockbuster new study showing that Antonin Scalia is the most sarcastic of the Supreme Court justices. But, I am explicitly saying that it is completely reasonable for nations to discriminate between allowing people into their country who want to embrace their culture, or allowing people into their country who want to destroy their culture, or establish a separate culture within.” Last year, Jindal began quietly working to raise his profile nationally – writing a playbook on repealing Obamacare for fellow conservatives, visiting the border to talk about illegal immigration and suing the federal government over Common Core – but Monday’s speech signals that he’s trying to raise his profile internationally, as well. Jindal seems to understand that many won’t like this view. “The politically correct view is to say that any view – anybody that says that is viewed as being culturally arrogant as being insensitive, having a colonial perspective. Lee’s birthday, since it makes so much sense to honor the 20th century’s greatest civil rights leader alongside a man who led the military effort to keep slavery alive.

Public anxieties about terrorism rose and European authorities vowed to redouble their efforts to root out terror cells and planned attacks before they occur.
