A former Muslim who is warning America that Islamists are establishing “no-go zones,” neighborhoods run by Islamic Shariah law, says social-welfare programs contribute to the problem.
Such “help” facilitates a “huge swathe of people not doing anything,” he explained in an interview with Greg Corombos of Radio America.
“All day every day [there are] men hanging on street corners, in the cafes, outside smoking, drinking tea, chatting, going back and forth between the mosque and the café,” said author Raheem Kassam, who has just released “No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You.”
He explains such no-go zones already are a problem across Europe, and he sees the beginnings of the same troubles in America.
He said the radicals are being forced by the socialist programs in Europe into the circumstances that cause them to “live lives devoid of work, and joy and freedom.”
And he sees the same influences developing in America.
For example, he points out that a museum in the area of Dearborn, Michigan, which has a large Muslim population, already is “undermining the U.S. government” and mocking the president and the vice president.
It features, he charged, “nothing more than anti-Israel propaganda.”

As part of his research, he visited many existing no-go zones across Europe.
“I could not pick and choose when I wanted to be there, it was just whenever I could arrive, it was the middle of the night in many cases, it was whenever the train or the plane arrived,” he said.
WND reported “No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You” warns America is making the same immigration mistakes now on full display in Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
There, almost daily reports of attacks by Muslim immigrants, often with knives or vehicles, are reported.
The book is based on Kassam’s travels to 14 cities with notorious no-go zones. They include the Molenbeek area of Brussels and the Rosengard section in Malmo, Sweden, where outsiders, including police, dare not tread.
In the Alum Rock neighborhood of Birmingham, England, graffiti on the side of a building read “No whites allowed after 8 p.m.”
What Kassam found in every one of his destinations was poverty, crime and extreme ghettoization, often not far from a posh area of the city.
