| A Report From Hell: Seine Saint-Denis (Part One)
| Tuesday, December 11, 2018
Jihad Watch : The British journalist Andrew Malone some time ago visited the Muslim
enclave of Seine-Saint-Denis in Paris. His report on what he rightly
called a “state within a state” was hair-raising — so much so that the
Daily Mail ultimately removed it after charges of “Islamophobia.” The
that “a Daily Mail source insisted the article had only been taken off
the site temporarily and the ‘the intention is to restore it’ after
considering the complaints and correcting where necessary.” That was in
early August; it has not been restored. But what in it was false? It is
Inside the World Express cafe, groups of men argue in
Arabic. On side streets, men smoke shisha pipes and talk — again, in
Arabic — on every corner. Women shop in veils and scarves, always
accompanied by a male relative. As a white European, I attract odd looks. When I take out my mobile
phone for a photograph, a young man jumps in front of me, waving his
index finger in my face, shouting: ‘La! La! La!’ (No! No! No!) Yet this is not an exotic, far-flung destination. This is France.
Moreover, this is Paris and only six miles from the Eiffel Tower.
The reason for all this activity — in an area which even the most
optimistic estate agent would struggle to sell as ‘cosmopolitan and
bohemian’ — is quite simple: immigration on a mammoth scale. The area in question is called Saint-Denis in the north-east of the
city, where the Basilica holds the resting places of many French kings
Recently, it was reported that this sprawling district now
holds as many as 300,000 illegal immigrants, many of whom rely on crime
or the ‘black economy’ to make money. The official legal population in Saint-Denis is estimated at 1.5 million. Not only that, according to French parliamentarians in a new report that’s causing much anguish across the nation, as many as 420,000 legal residents here are living ‘below the official poverty line’.
The scale of the problem grows each day. An estimated 80 migrants arrive in Paris every 24 hours — 550 a week. Many head for Saint-Denis because of its closeness to
transport links, including the railway lines heading towards the North
coast, and Britain.
Britain, these Muslim benefit-seekers believe, will provide them with
even more than France does. Ideally, of course, they would most like to
settle in Germany or Sweden, the most generous of welfare states. But
for now, they will have to make do with Great Britain, if, that is, they
can smuggle themselves in. Read it all here............................
