Some 150 neighbourhoods ‘held’ by Islamists says French classified report

According to a document classified as a defense secret, some 150 neighbourhoods in France have fallen into the hands of Islamists.

    The French General Directorate for Internal Security (DGSI) has just established a map of these territories conquered by Islamism, at the request of Christophe Castaner, formulated after the attack in Villejuif. It is an extremely sensitive subject for the executive, because they do not want to “stigmatize” the Muslim community.

    The DGSI is the French domestic security agency. It is charged with counter-espionage, counter-terrorism, countering cybercrime and surveillance of potentially threatening groups, organisations, and social phenomena.

    The book by political scientist Bernard Rougier, The Territories Conquered by Islamism, has moved the government to launch a fight against certain community drifts, but they fear being accused of stigmatizing Muslims.

    Thus, on January 5, after the attack on Villejuif, the Minister of the Interior, Christophe Castaner, sent a telegram to the prefects asking them to bring together the GEDs, namely the departmental assessment groups.

    This umpteenth meeting has at least resulted a clear figure, as relayed by weekly le Journal du dimanche (JDD): The number of districts under the influence of radical Islam is 150. These are the lost territories of the Republic that have been mapped by the DGSI.

    The document, classified a defense secret, is extremely sensitive and has only been disclosed to one minister, the Minister of the Interior. The other ministries concerned with the fight against ethno-cultural groups, and who met to discuss the subject on December 5 and 16, namely Justice, National Education, Health, Local Communities and Youth, have no oversight on this matter.

    “The ministers are under pressure from Macron, who asked them to make strong proposals,” an expert on the file told the JDD. On November 27, Christophe Castaner had already sent the prefects a circular making “the fight against Islamism and the withdrawal from the [French]community” a “new axis of [their] action”.

    But in addition to the suburbs of Paris, Lyon and Marseille, which we know are affected by the phenomenon, several cities in the Nord department are in the sights of internal intelligence.

    In Maubeuge, for example, the Union of French Muslim Democrats (UDMF) obtained 40 percent of the votes at a polling station. An “alarming situation” similar to that of the agglomeration of Denin or Roubaix, where “although historic, the situation takes on worrying proportions” explained a prefect cited by JDD.

    Among these territories “held” by Salafist Islam, there are less expected areas, such as Haute-Savoie or Ain, Annemasse, Bourg-en-Bresse, Oyonnax or even Bourgoin-Jallieu.

    Finally, even more surprising, the DGSI notes “the appearance of microterritories which have become Salafist in improbable zones” such as Nogent-le-Rotrou, in Eure-et-Loir.

      These of course are more commonly known as “no-go zones”, effectively beyond the control of the local or national government, and where there is almost no government presence. Thesepredominantly Muslim migrant enclaves are where a parallel society has taken over, organized around mosque communities. The latter, along with the local “business” leaders, run the no-go zones and can rely on the local “youth” to provide a militia to keep out the police or even emergency services if they deny permission to enter. Sharia rules, and the Quran sets the standard for education. The main economic activity of the areas is organized crime, to include drug trafficking and the rackets, and there is conflict (“gang wars”) among various ethnic and sub-ethnic groups for control of turf and the lucrative profits from criminal activity. Worse, a constant flow of illegal migrants from the Middle East and other war zones provides street soldiers for the gang wars. These people are often fugitive jihadists who bring with them combat skills, and they arme themselves with military-grade weapons smuggled in from war zones outside Europe.

      The situation in France is indeed alarming. What is even more alarming is that the above description fits other countries in western Europe, such as Germany and Sweden, and is developing in others. Law enforcement is breaking down as government resolve and political will is failing, and there is no guidance or leadership from the EU in Brussels that is remotely helpful.
