No safe passage? No services!

Reader comment on item: Muslim "No-go Zones" in Europe?

I would suggest they simply don't go into such neighborhoods unless and until it has been worked out with the "leaders" of said heavily Muslim communities that officials will not be subjected to abuse, harassment, or worse. It seems to me the leaders of said communities will come to their senses rather quickly when the police refuse to respond to a fight, the fire fighters refuse to respond to a fire, and emergency workers refuse to respond to a given emergency until they are provide with guaranteed safe passage.
