Policing the Sharia Enclaves of Europe.The French have an official bureaucratic designation for these malignant urban neighborhoods: zones urbaines sensibles (“sensitive urban zones”), abbreviated ZUS. France has evolved a complex administrative regimen for dealing with these dangerous banlieues.
In English they are commonly referred to as “no-go zones”, highlighting the fact that white people — or at least non-Muslim white people — are not welcome within them. No one who enters such a zone can expect to be protected by the state. Often the fire brigade and ambulance services refuse to enter such areas without a police escort, and the police themselves stay away unless they have a compelling reason to go in — plus plenty of backup.

And the thing that multiplies the danger is that the regime knows it has lost favor with the public. As Obama's approval ratings plummet, the desperation skyrockets.

He has not proposed improving America - he is intent on changing its most essential character.Yes, Mr. Obama is a more serious threat to America than al Qaeda. We know that Osama bin Laden and followers want to kill us, but at least they are an outside force against whom we can offer our best defense. But when a dedicated enemy of the Constitution is working from the inside, we face a far more dangerous threat. Mr. Obama can accomplish with the stroke of his pen what bin Laden cannot accomplish with bombs and insurgents.
