Fox News says sorry, but what WTF for?

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


The American cable television channel Fox News has been profusely apologising for referring to Muslim areas in Europe as “no-go” zones after radical Left Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, (pictured) threatened to sue the network.

US journos rarely research stuff outside America, preferring to rely on foreign news feeds, but this is one time they got it right... it’s the apology that is all wrong. 

The kerfuffle started with one commentator erroneously claiming that the entire city of Birmingham, England, was Muslim. Had he simply said that "parts" of Birmingham are Muslim dominated, he would have been correct.

Muslim “no-go zones” are a well-known fact of life in many parts of Europe and the Charlie Hebdo killings accidentally cast a global spotlight on these no-go zones in France and other European countries.

These zones are indeed “off limits” to non-Muslims. Host-country authorities have effectively lost control over most no-go zones and are unable or unwilling to provide even basic public services, such as police, fire fighting and ambulances out of fear of being attacked by Muslim youths.

Muslim enclaves in European cities are breeding Islamic drug syndicates that operate openly without fear of apprehension and Islamic radicalism thrives posing a serious threat to Western security.

Europe's no-go ghettos are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies that remain segregated from, rather than become integrated into, their European host nations. 

And if Australians think this is not on the Islamic agenda here, then they must be paid-up members of the Green Party. 

Of course the Left vehemently denies that these zones exist. Some are now engaged in a concerted campaign to discredit and even silence those who draw attention to the worsening issue.

Literally thousands of researched references and videos showing French no-go zones where Police hastily retreat from in fear for their lives, leave no doubt that the treasonous problem exists and persists.

And there are plenty of French networks Mayor Hidalgo could sue rather than bother with Fox News: 

Fabrice Balanche, a well-known French Islamic scholar who teaches at the University of Lyon, recently told Radio Télévision Suisse: "We have territories in France such as Roubaix, such as northern Marseille, where Police will not step foot, where the authority of the State is completely absent and where mini Islamic states have been formed."

French writer and political journalist Éric Zemmour recently told BFM TV: "There are places in France today, especially in the suburbs, where it is not really in France. “Salafi” (the PC word for Jihadist) Islamists are Islamising neighbourhoods and many suburbs. In these neighbourhoods, it's not France, it's an Islamic republic." 

French politician Franck Guiot wrote that parts of Évry, a township in the southern suburbs of Paris, are no-go zones where police forces cannot go for fear of being attacked. He said that politicians seeking to maintain "social peace" were prohibiting the police from carrying weapons to defend themselves.

Even the Socialist mayor of Amiens, Gilles Demailly, has referred to the Fafet-Brossolette district of Paris as a "no-go zone" where, "you can no longer order a pizza or get a doctor to come to the house." 

Europe 1, a leading broadcasters in France, has referred to Marseille as a "no-go zone" after the government was forced to deploy riot police, known as CRS, to confront warring Muslim gangs in the city. 

The French Interior Ministry said it was trying to "reclaim" 184 square kilometers of Marseille that have come under the control of Muslim law.

The French newspaper Le Figaro referred to downtown Perpignan as a "veritable no-go zone" where "aggression, antisocial behavior, drug trafficking, Muslim communalism, racial tension and tribal violence" are forcing non-Muslims to move out. 

Le Figaro also reported that the Les Izards district of Toulouse was also a no-go zone, where Arab drug trafficking gangs rule the streets in a climate of fear.

Separately, Le Figaro reported that large quantities of assault rifles are circulating in French no-go zones. "For a few hundred dollars you can buy Kalashnikovs," political scientist Sebastian Roché said, for "the price of an iPhone!"

The newspaper France Soir published poll results showing that 60% of French citizens are now in favor of deploying the army into troubled suburbs to restore order.

The newspaper Le Parisien has called parts of Grigny, a township in the southern suburbs of Paris, a "lawless zone" plagued by well-organized Muslim gangs, whose members believe they are "masters of the world."

The weekly news magazine Le Point reported on the "spiralling Muslim lawlessness" in the French city of Grenoble.

The French magazine L'Obs has reported on the deteriorating security situation in Roubaix, a city in northern France that is located close to the Belgian border. The magazine reported that local citizens are "exiled within their own country" and want to create their own militia to restore order because police are too afraid to confront Muslim gangs.

In August 2014, the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles (Contemporary Values) reported that "France has more than 750 areas of lawlessness" where the law of the French Republic no longer applies. 

Under the headline "Hell in France," the magazine said that many parts of France are experiencing a "dictatorship of Islamic riffraff" where police are "greeted by mortar fire" and are "forced to retreat amid flying projectiles."

Separately, Valeurs Actuelles reported on the lawlessness in Trappes, a township located in the western suburbs of Paris, where radical Islam and endemic crime go hand in hand. "Criminals are pursued by Islamic fundamentalists to impose an alternative society, breaking links with the French Republic," according to local police commander Mohammed Duhan. It is not advisable to go there, he says, adding, "You will be spotted by so-called chauffeurs (lookouts for drug traffickers) and be stripped and beaten."

Valeurs Actuelles has also reported on no-go zones in Nantes, Tours and Orléans, which have turned into "battlefields" where remaining native French holdouts are confronted with "Muslim communalism, the disappearance of their culture and rampant crime."

No, no, Mayor Hidalgo, the French resistance does not abide at the craven Fox News... it’s right outside your own bloody door!


Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel (2010) Wins Top Award.......

No hooker I would touch.

I am a migrated here in the 50's at the invitation of this government. So I am not from convict stock, but if I was I would be proud to say so. These people were transported for the smallest crimes. I agree with Noosa duck... 800.000 against a couple boatloads of convict and a handful of soldiers. Why did the English get the upper hand? I have read that it did not take long for the indigenous people to get guns as well. Stop whinging and get on with life.

Those are the eyes seen only through a burkha! EVIL

And don't forget Wilkie, Julian Burnside, Ian Rintoul, Bowen, O'Connor, Bourke and a host of others.

Fox should have told her to just f*** off!

She should be thankful that you will be found LO ...., lol

It's Time for Iran To Tell The West Goodbye -

Instead of appealing to the West, Iran needs to turn away from the West. The historical time of the West has passed.

The West has devolved into a police state in which government is no longer accountable to law or to the people. There are no jobs for young people, and no income security for the elderly. The West is actually in the process of looting itself. Just look at what is happening in Greece. In order to guarantee the profits of the private banks from outside Greece, the Greek people have had their pensions cut, their employment cut, their social services cut, and they have had to sell their valuable public properties at low prices to private purchasers from outside their country. The same looting is now going on in Ukraine, and Italy, Spain, and Portugal face the identical fate.

In America the entire economic policy of the country is conducted only for the benefit of the super-rich One Percent.

Yes and they then progressed to the star pickets (Waratahs). They really put a dent into their thick skulls.

Here are interesting reads -


The Abdication of ‘Queen’ Elizabeth II

We are NOW in an Interregnum

The Real Deal with Dr. Jim Fetzer, 14 Jan 2015

OT but just read a news story the other day about an Iranian "asylum seeker"\country shopper who raped a young Australian woman. There have already been several of these cases and I wondered if the victims could sue the Greens and Labor for bringing these scumbags into our country. The perp said he was taught in Iran that western women are whores. Surely with all that we know of muslim religion, history and culture it could be argued in a court of law that these politicians are knowingly putting members of the Australian community at risk by allowing them to live among us.

I think you lot are unfair to the aborigines, I think I'm right in saying they invented the stick. That must be worthy of note.

US lists the Russian TV Internet service Russia Today as the equivalent of Boko Haram and the Islamic State terrorist groups.

War, War, War, that is all Washington wants. It enriches the military/security complex, the largest component of the US GNP and the largest contributor, along with Wall Street and the Israel Lobby, to US political campaigns.

Anyone or any organization that offers truth to the lies is demonized. Last week the new chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, listed the Russian TV Internet service Russia Today as the equivalent of Boko Haram and the Islamic State terrorist groups. This absurd accusation is a prelude to closing down RT in the US just as Washington’s puppet UK government closed down Iran’s Press TV.

In other words, Anglo-Americans are not permitted any different news than what is served to them by “their” governments.

That is the state of “freedom” in the West today.

She would have been a bit of a looker 25 years ago .

Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews so high?

Australia, 62 IQ, 17 samples, 1 country.
New Guinea, 63 IQ, 5 samples, 1 country.

Just thinking out loud here. Why is the government Hell bent on stopping young “Australian” Muslims from travelling overseas to either fight against or with ISIS?

I think that they should all be allowed to go over there and hopefully get their heads blown off in the process, however, there must be some conditions attached to this.

1. First, they must renounce their Australian citizenship if they have it. Here’s a link to help them.

2. When they leave, they must take their entire family with all members of the family renouncing their citizenship as well.

3. Under no circumstances, ever come back to Australia.

Geez, with ideas like this, I should have been a bloody politician.

Eagle I was talking about the NZ imperial awards

Oh G2 what have I done and I am in such a good mood, until I read about how we are now pandering more to the ragheads who don't give a stuff about us but we do them.

Oh oh what have you started now Eagle ?

So now what's your Point and Bruce your continual bashing of Abbott is getting very boring and Bruce labour was also trying to get at PH and they didn't but Tony beat them to the punch as did Sharples
