It’s no secret that countries like Germany and France have been dealing with various issues when trying to assimilate the millions of migrants that have flooded their countries from the Middle East and North Africa, yet you rarely hear about the areas in their countries that operate under Islamic law and are often referred to as “no go zones”.
The following undercover video by France 24 illustrates a prime example of the lack of assimilation in parts of France, as a woman attempts to enter a cafe in a predominately Muslim area on the outskirts of Paris.
As the video opens the narrator shows several scenes of people walking the streets, shopping and going about their day, but there is something missing from these pictures…women. As the woman enters a cafe wearing a hidden camera she is immediately confronted by the owner as he says, “It’d be better if you waited outside.” When asked why that is, he responded, “Because there are just men here.”
The woman tries to explain that we live in a world with men and women in it who frequently occupy the same areas together, but the owner didn’t seem convinced as he ominously tells her, “It’s for your own good.”
The woman continues, trying to explain to other men in the cafe that being in public with a woman is perfectly normal, asking the men what if they want to have coffee with their cousin, friend or wife?
The men reply, “My cousin stays at home, you see in this cafe there’s no gender mixing.”
Could you imagine if you are a woman enjoying a day with your significant other and you are turned away from a coffee shop because they don’t allow “gender mixing”? Apparently politicians in France are ok with this behavior, as there has been no action to enforce anti-discrimination laws on these Islamic establishments and any criticism is met by being branded a “racist”.
As the undercover video continues, the men tell the woman that “We’re in Sevran (northeastern suburbs of Paris), not in Paris,” implying in that area Islamic laws take precedent over French laws and the woman should have known better.
Finally, the Muslim men just spell it out for the woman and say, “You’re not in Paris! It’s a different mentality. Here, we do things like in our home countries!”
These migrants (assuming they are migrants since they speak of their home countries) are literally spelling it out for the politicians of France and other European nations that have opened their doors to millions of immigrants by saying, “we do things like in our home countries.” It doesn’t get much clearer than that, or more obvious that assimilation is not taking place, but rather areas of the country are being morphed into versions of Middle Eastern cities where oppressive Sharia Law takes precedent over common law and women are not granted the same rights as men.
As time goes on, how long until these Islamic controlled suburbs expand ever farther into central Paris? Do French women have to keep moving to different sections of the city in order to enjoy the freedoms that their country is suppose to guarantee them? As much as European Union leaders claim that immigrants are simply seeking opportunities and are assimilating into Western culture, it certainly appears to be the other way around, as Europeans are forced to conform to harsh Islamic norms.
The mainstream media and feminist groups are fond of branding Donald Trump a sexist for a few lewd comments, yet they appear to be silent when it comes to the very real oppression of women under Sharia law and Islamic governance, even though it is happening right next door in Europe at this very moment.
Where is the outrage from the left? Where are the opinion columns in The Huffington Post and Washington Post condemning this behavior? I can think of no clearer example of sexism and misogamy than not allowing women in the same establishment as men, and it is certainly much more severe than the “locker room talk” that the media blasted Donald Trump for during the election. True progressiveness is having the courage to condemn legitimate acts of oppression, but we have yet to see this take place when it comes to archaic Islamic laws regarding women.
