First Level 42 with Leaving Me Now. 1985 hit from the album World Machine.

An essential eighties sound from a band composed of 4 virtuosos: Mark King with his unmistakable slap-bass guitar technique, the Gould brothers with Phil as a drummer and Boon as a guitarist, and Mike Lindup on keyboards but best known for his falsetto backing vocals. The piano solo in the middle and at the end in Leaving... is from a guest musician however, Wally Badarou.

Then it's The Non-Commissioned Officers with Just North.

Indie band from Nashville.

Slaap wel.

Well, why, just like you thought they would!

Earlier this month, TV producer Ami Horowitz conducted a candid camera experiment at Berkeley University whereby he himself was first waving an ISIS flag to see how the students would react. Keep in mind that even in San Fran the airheads must have heard that it was ISIS responsible for the beheading of Foley and Sotloff, let alone for the biggest butcher's bill in the region since the Iran/Iraq war.

The reaction? Absolute apathy. No big deal here. Apart from a couple of blokes muttering in agreement when Horowitz starts railing about US imperialism and colonialism.

Then Horowitz starts flying the Star of David:

Oh, the HORROR!!!

"Israel is a thief in the night!!!"

"Tyranny isn't cute!"

"Fuck Israel!"

"Fuck Israel!"

"Fuck Israel!"

Just FYI, Israel is the only functioning democracy in the entire region and 'occupies' in itself about.... 0.5 per cent of the entire Arab world. It's such a bloodthirsty tiranny that last month it admitted one of Ismail Haniyeh's 13 children - Haniyeh is Hamas' leader in Gaza - into Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv for treatment. One year ago one of Haniyeh’s granddaughters was also admitted to an Israeli hospital. And last June, his mother-in-law sought treatment for cancer at yet another hospital in Jerusalem.

Mr Haniyeh refuses to recognize Israel's right to exist.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

Well, it appears like with an upcoming intellectuall class the caliber of Berkeley students the future of the US of A is in the best of hands.

A report by the Swedish Police lists 55 no-go zones among 186 troublesome muslim areas. In these 55 zones, the police effectively dare no longer venture. Some are guarded by some sort of militia, who keep a close watch on who enters.

Here is the report. Among a plethora of incidents, it mentions a case in which a Swedish Police patrol car in pursuit of (muslim) criminals entered such a zone, where it was blocked and attacked by 50 muslims who extricated the officers. Police HQ did not dare to send reinforcements out of fear of provoking a civil war in the area and was only able to free the hapless cops through negotiations.

Outlaw Mike kids you not, people.

The Sweden Report, a blog by an American living in Sweden, has the goods:

"The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 areas where they publicly admit to having surrendered control to the criminal gangs. These areas have long had problems with mailmen, fire trucks and ambulances being attacked when trying to enter, which has led to them routinely requesting police escort. Now it’s the police being attacked outright.

These no-go zones are primarily so-called “exclusion areas” which is the politically correct term for the 186 ghettos that have sprung up around Sweden in the past two decades. These areas are predominantly populated by immigrants from muslim countries with low education and even lower employment rates. The exception being the enthusiastic entrepreneurs in the fields of drug dealing, protection rackets and robberies.

Since the real law doesn’t apply, the function of justice has largely been taken over by the gangs themselves, not unlike how the mafia is seen as the go-to place in rural Italy when the local police is too corrupt to serve its purpose. Unofficial courts are held and punishments are meted out based on the cultural norms of the dominant gangs. Some no-go areas even have vehicle checkpoints at the border. Not police checkpoints, but the gangs protecting their turf from law enforcement and rival gangs.

This development would have been inconceivable only 20 years ago, and one would think this official surrender by the police would have made big headlines. This is not the case; the most attention it seems to have received in mainstream media is an opinion piece in national paper Svenska Dagbladet.

It can be speculated that this is due to the fact that any reporting on this could be seen as “support” for nationalist party SD that wants to restrict the vast inflow to these ghettos, which is an absolute no-no amongst the journalists and could cost them their jobs. The world’s most extreme immigration from the MENA-region must continue unchallenged, and another 100 000+ must be added annually to the ghetto gangs’ recruitment base.

Edit: Scratch that. They just announced they’re setting the sights higher with a significantly increased immigration for 2015. The new forecast should put the total immigration above 200 000 per year by the time all is said and done."

This is Stockholm's centre, a map straight out of the Swedish Police report. Yup, these are the no-go zones.

Happy thoughts to you.
