Hugh Fitzgerald: What Happens to Jews Who Live in a No-Go Area? (Part One)

We all know that throughout Europe today there are Muslim No-Go areas, where police and firemen enter at their peril. For they are frequently attacked by young Muslim males, who throw objects — bottles, bricks, rocks — at them, as a way of making clear that the state’s writ does not run in these areas. A sufficiently intimidating Muslim presence can be established with far less than a Muslim majority.

In these places, the police must escort firemen, who are otherwise afraid to enter. The police themselves only enter such areas in groups.

What happens to non-Muslims, especially to Jews, who continue to live in these areas?

Recently, a French Jewish woman spoke in public for the first time about her family’s harrowing experiences with antisemitism in the Paris neighborhood where they lived for nearly a decade, in an interview with one of France’s most popular talk shows.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
