I have to wonder how many "zones" in the US (and/or in Canada, for that matter) could be described simularly.
We all know that there are gettos where rampent crime goes unchecked and police/government presence is token at best.
I can think of 3 areas that I would discribe this way within my own city. The most notable would be
the Downtown East Side
. This is an area of wonten lawlessness, drug abuse, crime, etc. It's
interesting to note that if you look at the faces in the area, very few are ethnic Middle Easterners. As far as I know, there's not a whole lot of
Islamic faith going on either. Hell, ther only faith most of these people have is the faith that tomorrow will be just as bad as today.
Seriously, before you start blaming groups of people for things like this, maybe you should take a good long look around. How many areas in the West
are under control of the Mafia, gangs, or just good old fashioned Dispare?
