But I thought?

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

Submitted by Jerry (United States), Dec 3, 2015 at 17:01

Mr Pipes, you're a good, thorough journalist. You can criticize yourself, and correct prior opinions. I like that.

I believe here you forgot to mention the "no-go" zones of England. I believe you visited one in January 2015 or late 2014. I had written to you regarding these. You answered, saying you had visited the place in daylight and found nothing wrong.

Please correlate.

As you wrote, this experience proves how these places are always in a state of flux. One day no hassle. The next you arouse their attention. Like worker bees defending the hive, they swarm around you.

So sad that government allow this. Here grow the roots of the upcoming civil war. The courage shown here to isolate a neighborhood tomorrow will be the taking control of an entire city.

Submitting....

Thanks for the praise but I am not a journalist.

I have been in various parts of London but not systematically enough to include those in my listing of places visited.
