Raheem Kassam, Breitbart London editor and frequent host of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, talked with Alex Marlow about his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, on Tuesday’s edition of the show.
Kassam said that writing the book involved “a lot of old-school stuff: planning and getting on buses in foreign countries, and talking to people in different languages and trying to get your head around something that wasn’t a massive established paper trail already.”
“Funnily enough, the Swedish government doesn’t want to release their rape statistics and crime statistics,” he explained. “It doesn’t suit them very well to do so. You’ve got to do a lot of pushing, a lot of pressuring, a lot of translating, a hell of a lot of digging.”
Kassam said his journey took him from cities like Molenbeek in Europe to the United States. For example, one passage in No Go Zones discusses his discoveries at the Arab-American Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
“These places are open to the public, and yet you never hear about quite exactly what’s going on there,” he said. “What I found going on at the Arab-American Museum in the United States in 2017 was U.S. corporations sponsoring anti-U.S. government and anti-Israeli propaganda for public consumption. This is supposed to be a museum, and actually, what they were doing was propagandizing. There’s a lot of unique reporting in the book.”
Marlow praised Kassam’s groundbreaking work in documenting the untold story of “ghettoization of immigrants, particularly Muslim immigrants, throughout the Western world right now.” He further noted that Kassam has been called a liar for uncovering evidence that large groups of immigrants are not assimilating to their Western host societies.
“When you dig into their response – and I’ve had some of this already – when you push back against them, you find out exactly where they’re coming from,” said Kassam. “They end up in a position of saying, ‘Well, why should they assimilate anyway?’ If you get all of the nonsense arguments out of the way, that these places don’t exist and so and so forth, they end up at this position that is really the argument that we’re having nowadays. The truth is that the left doesn’t want to preserve history. It doesn’t want to preserve identity.”
“Look at what we saw over the course of the last couple of weeks with the statues being pulled down,” he continued. “Yesterday, I think, even, another Confederate statue was pulled down somewhere else in America. It seems reminiscent of countries that have been liberated from tyrants, are now being played out in America, now being appropriated by the political left for their little childish tantrums.”
