Critics of we "Islamophobes" sometimes claim that the idea of Muslim no-go areas in Europe, one of the staples of the "Islamophobia industry", is a myth. But here we have an official committee of the Belgian government declaring that Molenbeek, the terrorist nestbed in Belgium, is a no-go area not only for ordinary people, but for the police.
"A police that does not dare to have contact with the population, that doesn't know some districts at all and doesn't dare to patrol there". This is the frightening observation made by the Committee P, responsible for monitoring the police services, in a report created last year about the Brussels-West police zone. According to the report, there is open conflict with the inhabitants. On Wednesday, the Belgian police "watchdog" came to make a summary of its report to parliament, during a closed-doors session. 
The main criticism levelled at the Brussels-West police zone, responsible for Molenbeek? That it only enters the "hot districts" when an intervention is required or when there is an emergency call. Otherwise, it doesn't set foot there. "Because of this, the gulf between it and the citizens is widening," indicates the report.

What is Committee P?
Committee P was created in 1991 in order to provide the Federal Parliament with an external body responsible for monitoring the police. It became operational in mid-1993. Thanks to the many inspection inquiries and the examination of complaints conducted by its Investigation Department, Committee P can provide a reliable picture of the current working of the police. 
With the help of information from numerous other sources, it acts as a watchdog by monitoring the working of the police forces on behalf of the Federal Parliament and all citizens.

  1. First question why wouldn't committee P also recommend
    a. Police infiltration into mosque, pretend to be Muslim but not really, deep undercover stuff.
    B. Recommend special task force to monitor/ surveillance that area.
    C. Have state agencies move people apart, so not to have such close contact with each other.
