Recently a German police chief said that places like Wedding in Berlin, a Muslim ghetto in the German capital, are as dangerous for policemen to work in as Afghanistan. Call them parallel societies, Muslim ghettos, Sharia colonies, lawless areas, lost territories, failed multicultural experiments -- or whatever. Translation from Danish, Den Korte Avis, February 20: "Ghetto behind the facade":
The proportion of residents from non-western countries, in for example Akacieparken in Valby and Aldersrogade in Outer Nørrebro, is now about 75 percent. In Gellerupparken at Aarhus, it is 85 percent, while Mjølnerparken in Outer Nørrebro peaks with some 90 percent immigrants and descendants from non-Western countries. ...
This changing composition of residents has fostered parallel societies. Societies within the society emerge, and they are shaped by the culture of the immigrants' countries of origin, which is mainly Muslim.
