No go zones in Germany

Reader comment on item: Does Europe Have No-go Zones?

Submitted by Herbert Wilfried (Germany), Feb 20, 2015 at 03:25

As a German, just a short comment on those what you propose to name "semi-autonomous sectors".

- First time I've heard of the term "no go zone" was when the 2006 FIFA World Cup was held in Germany and someone proposed "No Go Areas" for the blacks or foreigners in general, so those blacks should not go into these areas because of the high neo-Nazi density there. So ... completely different no go areas. But the idea of marking those places was canceled, more information see here: http://www.nogoarea.de/karte-no-go-areas/ - use Google Translate. Basically, it is a East-West Germany issue and pretty complex.

- Until googling now, although I am a news junkie, I've never heard of no go areas/zones for Westerner/Germans/Christians or whites in Germany before. After googling I found out there is one website (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/andrew-harrod/germanys-sharia-no-go-zones/print/)
which is wrongly titled "Germany's Sharia No-Go Zones". The title is completely misleading.

Actually the whole article is about a kind of "no go zone for certain types of foreigners", not specifically Germans/Westerner, but rather people from "East Europe" or "Latin America". So those type of foreigners should avoid to live in small, specific parts of Bonn, a city in Germany. Police claims this map is wrong according to their crime statistics.
Until now, there is no evidence of such "no go zones" in Germany. (source: http://www.general-anzeiger-bonn.de/bonn/bad-godesberg/Warnhinweise-loesen-lebhafte-Diskussion-aus-article1177743.html )

Of course we have some young rappers in Berlin and other big German cities, who have roots in Arabia or Turkey, and who claim they follow Sharia, or claim they bang your mom, and the likes, but those kind of young gangsters can be found in any bigger cities around the world, I guess. And until now there havn't been drawn any "no go maps" on how to avoid those youths.
