Fox News "Terrorism Expert" Claims That Birmingham, England Is Totally Muslim

Via the Guardian:
An American "terrorism expert" on the right-wing Fox News channel has declared that Birmingham is "a totally Muslim" city "where non-Muslims just simply don't go". Steve Emerson made the claim, which may come as a surprise to the hundreds of thousands of non-Muslim residents of Britain's second-largest city, during a television discussion about no-go zones in Europe where Muslims are apparently in complete control. "In Britain, it's not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don't go in," he said. Mr Emerson, who describes himself as "an internationally recognised expert on terrorism", did not stop there. "Parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn't dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire," he proclaimed, without giving examples. He described Birmingham as one of a number of European cities "where sharia courts were set up, where Muslim density is very intense, where the police don't go in, and where it's basically a separate country almost, a country within a country."
Emerson's claims immediately spawned the #FoxNewsFacts hashtag on Twitter. Click over and enjoy. The Mirror has compiled some of the best ones here.
