Italy: Moroccan Migrant Threatens to Blow Himself up Inside Milan Church

Italian Carabinieri arrested a 43-year-old Moroccan living in Italy earlier this week after he entered a shop and threatened to blow himself up in a nearby church.

The man is said to have walked into a pet shop and attempted to reach out to shake the hand of the shopkeeper but when the worker refused, he became agitated and began cursing in Italian and Arabic. During the diatribe, the man threatened to blow himself up in the nearby church of San Carlo.

EU3 to open trade with Iran independent of US dollar: Russia FM

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the three major European signatories to a landmark nuclear deal with Iran agreed to establish trade ties with Iran independent of the US dollar.

Since the United States' unilateral move in May to withdraw from the nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), European companies are under mounting pressure from Washington to cut business ties with Tehran.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement and that he plans to reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

Lavrov said on Monday that the decision by France, Germany and Britain would mainly concern small and medium-sized companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet more brilliant, unintended consequences from the US withdrawl from the P5+1 deal with Iran!!

And if these people are not going to be trading in the US dollar for Iranian oil, what is the US going to do, go to war with Europe AND Russia, AND Iran?!?

Whatever advisors who told President Trump that this was a good idea, obviously did not think this all the way through.

Europe Cannot Cope With Any Further Armed Conflict On The Continent

European leaders are not only unable to counteract the demographic crisis on the Old Continent, but are also losing ground in terms of defense. President Trump’s skepticism and reservation about the military ideas of European bureaucrats Ankara’s increasingly aggressive actions towards Cyprus and Greece, and the rapprochement between Turkey and Russia highlight NATO’s weakness on the eve of its summit in Brussels.

"We Are Headed For The Status Of A Colony": Boris Johnson's Full Resignation Letter

The much anticipated resignation letter penned by the former UK Foreign Minister Boris Johnson has been released, and in as expected, he does not mince his words in unleashing a brutal attack on Thersa May, warning that "we have postponed crucial decisions — including the preparations for no deal, as I argued in my letter to you of last November — with the result that we appear to be heading for a semi-Brexit, with large parts of the economy still locked in the EU system, but with no UK control over that system."

He then adds that while "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope" and "a chance to do things differently, to be more nimble and dynamic, and to maximise the particular advantages of the UK as an open, outward-looking global economy", he warns that the "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt."

US NATO Envoy Claims Russia is Trying to 'Flip' Turkey, Other Allies to Its Side

The comment comes ahead of the upcoming NATO summit in Brussels that is set to take place on 11-12 July, where the US is expected to demand other member-states to increase their military spending to 2% of GDP, in accordance with the alliance’s requirements.

US NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison shared his opinion that Russia is attempting to "flip" Turkey and a number of other NATO members in an interview with Fox News.

"I do think Russia is trying to flip Turkey. They are trying to flip many of our allies. They want to destabilize the strongest defense alliance in the history of the world — NATO," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe it is more a case of Turkey and others getting fed up with the US and NATO.

Israeli spy firm targeted NGOs tied to Soros before Hungary election — report

Secretive Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube was hired to engage in a campaign to discredit local NGOs, along with individuals connected to Jewish billionaire George Soros, ahead of Hungary’s presidential election earlier this year, POLITICO reported Friday.

Recordings made by operatives of the Tel Aviv-based company were then used by Prime Minister Viktor Orban to attack rights groups and Soros himself in the days leading up to his landslide election victory in April, the report said.

The magazine cited a former employee of the firm as well as an individual with knowledge of the organization who both confirmed the details. It provided numerous pieces of evidence backing up its claim, including addresses and names of fake individuals and companies used in the operation which Black Cube has used in the past.

Netanyahu forms alliances to block European support for Palestine

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is working to get closer to countries in Central and Eastern Europe. In so doing the Israeli prime minister is seeking to form a pro-Israel alternative to the European Union, which includes countries that traditionally supported Israel but criticized its settlement policy in Palestinian occupied territories.

Netanyahu officially launched his plan a year ago, last July, when he was speaking at a meeting in Budapest, which included the Prime Ministers of Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. At the time, it was not clear whether it was intended or deliberate that the microphone remained open in the presence of journalists before cutting it off, according to a report published by Haaretz on Sunday.

Italian Rolling Stone Calls for War on Populist Salvini

The Italian language version of Rolling Stone magazine has dedicated its July issue to inciting resistance against Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, in a manner reminiscent of similar public attacks on President Donald J. Trump in the United States.

On a rainbow-colored background, the Rolling Stone issue bears the title “We are not with Salvini” in direct confrontation with the League leader’s campaign slogan in the lead-up to last March’s elections: “We are with Salvini.”

The well-known magazine of music and pop culture follows its statement with an ominous declaration: “From now on those who are silent are complicit,” suggesting that active resistance to the new government is the only acceptable position.

The accompanying editorial, probably written by Massimo Coppola, attempts to justify this radical position by underscoring the unique gravity of the present situation.

Catholic Bishop: Europe Migrant Crisis ‘Orchestrated’ by International Powers

The Catholic church is being used as a pawn in a well-orchestrated plan to radically alter the Christian identity of European nations through mass migration, said Bishop Athanasius Schneider in a bombshell interview last week.

Schneider, who serves as auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, told the Italian daily Il Giornale that the current migrant crisis “represents a plan orchestrated and prepared for a long time by international powers to radically alter the Christian and national identity of the peoples of Europe.”

To achieve their objectives, these powers abuse “the true concept of humanism and even the Christian commandment of charity,” Schneider said, exploiting the moral authority of the church for anti-Christian purposes.

The powers in question “use the enormous moral potential of the church and their own structures to achieve their anti-Christian and anti-European goal more effectively,” he said.

MPs Demanding ‘No Confidence’ Vote After May’s Brexit Sell-out, Boris Calls Deal ‘A Big Turd’

Theresa May has been unable to contain Brexiteer anger over her “turd” Brexit proposals, with backbenchers reportedly moving to trigger a vote of no confidence in her leadership.

Left-liberal news anchor and political insider Robert Peston cited sources confirming formal letters calling for a confidence vote are being sent to Graham Brady, who chairs the 1922 committee of Tory MPs who do not hold government positions.

According to the ITV host, the letters appear to be a “spontaneous” response to the Prime Minister “traducing those who voted to leave [the] EU” rather than a concerted effort by Jacob Rees-Mogg — the party’s leading backbench Brexiteer — and his European Research Group faction.

Migrants Reaching Spain by Sea Up 120 Percent

The Spanish government reports that the number of migrants reaching the country by sea is up more than 120 percent this year as the so-called Western Mediterranean route gained recognition as an alternative way to Europe.
Spain’s Maritime Rescue Service said it pulled 373 migrants from seven boats attempting to cross the Mediterranean on Friday.

Spanish authorities say the rescues occurred in the Strait of Gibraltar — the shortest route between the African and European continents in the western Mediterranean — and near Alboran Island, which lies about 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of the Moroccan coast.

The Spanish Interior Ministry says 14,446 migrants reached Spain during the first six months of 2018. Almost 6,300 of them arrived in June, when the weather was fair and seas were calm.

David Davis ‘resigns from Government after crunch Brexit talks with Theresa May’

BREXIT minister David Davis has reportedly resigned from the Government - just hours after failing to talk Theresa May out of her 'soft Brexit' plan.

It comes amid mounting anger among Leave-backing MPs that the new No10 blueprint betrays the referendum result.

The plan would see Britain keep EU regulations for most goods to keep trade flowing from Europe, but adopt our own laws on tariffs slapped on imports from abroad in nearly all cases - meaning we can strike new deals with countries around the world.

Last week Mr Davis held a second round of one to one talks with Mrs May in 24 hours last night in a bid to harden her new negotiating stand, The Sun can reveal.

Allies say the former SAS reservist fears she is about to give too much away in her bid to kick start stalled talks with the EU.

Sweden calls for Israel to lift the siege of Gaza

Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallström called on Friday for the Israeli government to lift its 12-year-old siege of the Gaza Strip and to allow medical aid into the coastal enclave, Egypt’s Al-Shaab newspaper has reported.

“Israel has to lift the siege it imposes on Gaza, open border crossings and secure the arrival of medical and food assistance,” Wallström told the Swedish parliament. The minister pointed to the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Palestinian territory. She has made several comments against the illegal and inhumane Israeli siege.

Wallström also pointed out that the ongoing Great March of Return protests that started on 30 March in Gaza have seen Israeli snipers kill 136 Palestinians and wound more than 15,000 others, including children.

The Politics Behind The Sabotage Of The Iran Deal In Europe

As the EU scrambles to offer a viable package of economic incentives to convince Iran to stay in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) after the US withdrawal, some forces are attempting to undermine this effort and fully align the bloc’s policies with the Trump administration’s strategy of isolating Iran.

A case in point was an attempt in the European Parliament to block one of the key measures that EU governments proposed to preserve the JCPOA: to give a mandate to the European Investment Bank (EIB) to support financing investment projects in Iran. As of June 4, when the proposal was made, the Parliament had two months to object by issuing a resolution blocking the measure.

Swedish Dental Expert Fined $50,000 for Exposing Adult Migrants Masquerading as Children

See something, say nothing? This appears the message in Sweden, where politically-correct authorities may punish those who dare complain about the government’s culture-rending and crime-spiking importation of vast numbers of Muslim migrants. The latest example is a dental hygienist fined approximately $50,000 for revealing that some refugees claiming to be “children” are actually adults. According to Swedish news organ Samhällsnytt (translation courtesy of Jihad Watch):

Boris in four-letter attack on May: Foreign Secretary stuns Chequers summit with foul-mouthed outburst but Prime Minister outguns him in Brexit showdown

Boris Johnson has opened up an astonishing new Government split with a crude outburst against Theresa May’s new Brexit policy.

The Foreign Secretary stunned fellow Ministers with his four-letter dismissal of the Prime Minister’s plan at Friday’s special Chequers summit designed to unite the Cabinet. His comment risks making him the first victim of Mrs May’s fresh crackdown on dissent.

Mr Johnson – who has been accused of betrayal by Tory Brexiteers for not blocking Mrs May’s ‘soft Brexit’ proposals – spoke out against the plan for the UK to remain in line with Brussels rules in a new free trade zone with the EU.

Craig Murray: No Need For NATO

A NATO summit approaches that brings Donald Trump to Europe and then on to these [British] shores, and brings the usual clamour for more of the taxpayers’ money to be given to arms manufacturers.

Yet NATO is a demonstrably useless institution.

It’s largest ever active military deployment, for 12 years in Afghanistan, resulted in military defeat throughout 80% of the country, the installation of a pocket regime whose scrip does not run further than you can throw the scrip, and a vast outflow of heroin to finance the criminal underworld throughout NATO countries.

Look at this chart closely, and marvel at the fact that the NATO occupation began in early 2002.

The meeting of the European Council on 28 June confirmed that the Union, founded on the interests of the economic and financial oligarchies, beginning with those of the greatest powers, is presently crumbling because of its conflicts of interest, which are not limited to the migrant question.

EFFORTS TO SAVE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL BRING RUSSIA AND CHINA CLOSER TO EUROPE

The remaining parties to the P5+1 nuclear deal, China, Russia, Germany, France, and Britain are all trying to save the pact since the pullout of the US. Whether they’ll be able to do so remains to be seen, but the joint effort is bringing the nations all closer together.

A Friday meeting in Vienna centered on saving the deal, and also provided opportunities for top-ranking diplomats from the various nations to hold closed-door, sideline talks. With the US having withdrawn itself from the deal, discussions on the deal are effectively now bringing everyone else in line and facing the US opposition to the deal as a mutual problem.

The nations are not only in agreement about the need to save the deal but seem to be heading in a direction which Iranian FM Javad Zarif called “practical,” in their united opposition to the US pullout from the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, yes, one of the "brilliant" unintended consequences of President Trump backing out of the P5+1 deal, to appease Sheldon Adelson and Benyamin Netanyahu; the world is coming closer together to save the Iran deal!

Bravo, Mr. President, for your unending idiocy, and this listening to really bad advice, on the issue of Iran.

But in the continued absence of answers to these simple questions, it seems that there might well be no “plausible alternative” but to assume that your case simply does not stack up. Which is why the onus is on you, not those you accuse, to explain yourselves.

Iran to cooperate with Europe if nuclear talks succeed Friday: Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Tehran will continue cooperation with Europe in their multilateral nuclear deal if the remaining parties to the landmark accord can meet Tehran's expectations during their upcoming ministerial meeting.

Foreign ministers of Iran and the five remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), are scheduled to meet in the Austrian capital Vienna on Friday to discuss ways of maintaining the international accord after the US’ withdrawal.

In a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday night, Rouhani noted that the US withdrawal from the JCPOA has caused some problems in economic areas, banking transactions and oil sector for the foreign companies which have made investment in Iran, making them reluctant about continuing their operations in the country.

Poland’s Patriotic Prime Minister Warns EU: ‘Don’t Lecture Us’

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has warned the European Union to listen to its increasingly disenfranchised citizens, respect its member-states, and face up to “reality” in a speech to the European Parliament.
“European sovereignty cannot mean building up Europe at the expense of member-states”, Morawiecki told MEPs in Strasbourg.

“Weak member-states and countries who feel they’re being ignored would be a recipe for indifference to the EU, in which the EU is seen as a problem and not a solution,” he warned.

The Polish premier claimed that, for his part, he wanted a strong Europe, but a strong Poland within it, and was not shy about highlighting the EU’s many problems.

“As a young man, I was a member of the anti-Communist opposition fighting for freedom and democracy,” he recalled.

Boris’ Brexit plot: Foreign secretary assembles SIX Eurosceptic ministers on eve of May's crucial summit as it’s revealed PM wants UK to follow EU Court rulings after Brexit and US trade deal unlikely

Boris Johnson assembled six Eurosceptic ministers for a private meeting tonight ahead of Theresa May's crunch summit at Chequers tomorrow, it has emerged.

The Foreign Secretary gathered colleagues including David Davis and Michael Gove to the Foreign Office after livid Brexiteers claimed the PM's 'third way' plan would make it impossible to do a trade deal with the U.S.

Pro-Brexit ministers Liam Fox, Esther McVey, Penny Mordaunt and Andrea Leadsom were also at the private meeting tonight.

The ministers were 'drawing up plans' to 'eviscerate' Mrs May's proposals, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The PM was struggling to keep her Cabinet united after a briefing paper was circulated suggesting the UK would align fully with EU standards - effectively ruling out a broad transatlantic trade agreement.

The young British woman, after an enjoying night at a club near Laganas, became lost on her way to her hotel so she asked a stranger for directions.

Instead of leading her to her hotel, the Pakistani man lead her to a local barn, where he was living with fellow countrymen. He obviously had already informed them by phone, as they were waiting for the lady totally naked.

Russian ambassador calls for OSCE reaction to detention of Sputnik Latvia chief-editor

"We are outraged by detention in Riga of the Sputnik-LVRUS Chief Editor Rozencov. We call upon the authorities of Latvia to abide by its international commitments on Media Freedom as well as on OSCE-RFom (Representative on Freedom of the Media) to react publicly to this situation," the Russian Mission tweeted on Thursday citing Lukashevich. The Russian Foreign Ministry will monitor the situation with the detention of the Sputnik Latvia chief-editor in Riga, and a corresponding address to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) will follow, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at Thursday’s briefing. Rozencov was detained by Riga police upon arrival from Moscow "for a conversation," which lasted 12 hours in total, she said. "We’d like to point out that the conversation lasted for more than 10 hours. We are keeping in contact with the journalist, and we will monitor this situation and transfer all the data to the OSCE," Zakharova noted.

Denmark finally realizes it has a non-Western immigration problem

Earlier this week, the New York Times published a piece outlining some of the new laws the Danish parliament has passed since the government, led by the center-right Venestre party under Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, introduced a package of immigrant-related reforms in early March.

Denmark has officially designated some urban areas as ghettos – areas that have dense populations of immigrants with high rates of unemployment and increasing levels of violence and gang activity. In one of the country's worst ghettos, for example, unemployment is almost 45%, 82% are from non-Western backgrounds, 53% have very little education, and 51% are low-income.

Specifically targeted at 25 of these low-income ghettos, the new laws are designed to discourage the congregation of immigrants in these areas, and to force assimilation where there is an unwillingness in the population to integrate into Danish society.

Trump's New 'Favorite': Why US-Italian Rapprochement Gets on France's Nerves

Washington's rapprochement with Italy apparently gets on Paris's nerves, Dr. Germano Dottori, a professor of strategic studies at Luiss University in Rome, told Sputnik, adding that the new Italian government is reshuffling the balance of power in the Mediterranean.

The Franco-Italian row was prompted by a shift in Rome's foreign policy after the euroskeptics' win, Dr. Germano Dottori, a professor of strategic studies at Luiss University in Rome, opined, suggesting that Italy is emerging as Donald Trump's new favorite in Europe.

According to the academic, a new foreign strategy adopted by the Italian government led by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte contradicts Paris's interests. He recalled that at a recent G7 summit, Conte made a symbolic gesture by endorsing Donald Trump's idea of re-admitting Russia into the G7.

The centre-left government in Stockholm has been facing a backlash over the recent crime wave — and the elephant in the room is migration.

A record-high number of people (43) were killed in shootings in Sweden in 2017 — up massively from just eight in 2006. Sweden’s Justice Minister Morgan Johansson acknowledged to news agency TT that there had been “a lot of shootings and deaths in a short time.”

EU to create first-ever joint fund to finance defense technologies development, fight inefficiency

For the first time ever, the European Parliament has approved setting-up an EU-wide fund to support the development of defense technologies and equipment. The move is aimed at boosting the European defense spending efficiency.

The initiative called the European Defense Industrial Development Program (EDIDP) is aimed at lending financial assistance to the EU defense companies in development of “new and upgraded products and technologies,” a press release published on the EU Parliament’s website says. The program, which envisages allocating €500 million ($582 million) from the EU 2019-2020 budget to co-finance defense projects, is expected to make the EU “more independent” in the defense field while making its defense spending “more efficient.”

EXCLUSIVE: Polish Lawmaker Speaks Out After Cathy Newman’s Latest Car Crash Interview on Illegal Migration

Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczy?ski has stuck to his guns following a frank interview on the migrant crisis with Cathy Newman, insisting his government will not take a single illegal migrant because that is what his party promised before the elections.

The Channel 4 presenter, who became infamous online following her viral interview with Canadian scholar Jordan Peterson, had demanded to know how many “refugees” Poland had taken, to which the Law and Justice Party (PiS) politician replied: “Zero.”

“And you’re proud of that?” Newman demanded.

“If you are asking me about Muslim illegal immigrants, none, not even one, will come to Poland,” Tarczy?ski repeated.

“We took over two million Ukrainians — who are working, who are peaceful — in Poland. We will not receive even one Muslim, because this is what we promised… this is why our government was elected; this is why Poland is so safe, this is why we have not had even one terror attack,” he said.

Talks on amending EU gas directive regulating Nord Stream 2 postponed

The Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union on June 20 decided to postpone the discussion of amendments to the EU gas directive before the tripartite talks between Russia, Ukraine and the EU on extending the Ukrainian gas transit contract, two sources close to its participants told Vedomosti. The gas directive is one of the basic documents of Europe's energy legislation aimed at fostering competition in this sphere. In November 2017, the European Commission proposed amending the document, which could affect the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. According to the current version of the directive, EU countries can determine for themselves what standards a gas supplier must meet for sea pipelines. Representatives from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and other states recommended postponing further discussion of the amendments to the gas directive in order to avoid "any negative influence" on the forthcoming trilateral gas transit negotiations.

Most of Europe's rivers and lakes are failing water quality tests - despite laws in place to protect them, according to a troubling new report.

Only 40 per cent of waterways tested were found to be ecologically healthy, with more than 60 per cent containing levels of mercury that exceed EU-wide limits.

The report, which covers the 2010 to 2015 period, showed England was in the bottom half of the European table and had deteriorated since 2010, when the last report was conducted.

Publicizing its growing exasperation in dealing with president Donald Trump who refuses to halt the tit-for-tat retaliation in the growing trade war with China - which is set to officially begin on Friday when the US slaps $34 billion in Chinese exports with 25% tariffs - but has a habit of doubling down the threatened US reaction to every Chinese trade counteroffer (after all the US imports far more Chinese goods than vice versa)...

... China has proposed a novel idea: to form an alliance with the EU - the world's largest trading block - against the US, while promising to open up more of China's economy to European corporations.

Immigration Network Exposed In Italy Has Deep Ties To George Soros

Why is there a migrant crisis in the Mediterranean? Why are NGOs involved? Because there is an extensive network of open borders activists and organizations behind it; many of them are directly funded by or cooperated with George Soros’ Open Society. Is it illegal? Not really. Political activism is an essential part of democratic societies. However, sometimes it goes too far, or the promoted causes prove to be either unrealistic or unsustainable.

The network of the “immigration lobby’’ in Italy is made up of International NGOs financed by the Open Society Foundation (green), Italian NGOs financed by OSF (blue), and organizations with shared projects with OSF (purple).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Europe sends the immigrants back to their home countries, they should send the bill to Soros!

The EU’s tourism industry lost 180 billion euros in GDP because of terrorist acts between 2004 and 2016, according to a study by the NGO RAND Europe.

The study shows that economic actors change their economic behaviour following a terrorist attack. Corporations and people don’t consume, save or invest in the same way after a terrorist act.

UK and France’s tourism industries lost each approximatively 43 billion euros, Spain is next with a 40 billion euro loss then comes Germany with a 19.2 billion euro loss.

“Beyond physical devastations and emotional traumas, there is a negative impact on economic growth in countries hit by terrorism (…) the loss of GDP in these economies are remarkable,” says Marco Hafner, senior economist for RAND Europe.

'Continued Underspending': Trump Slams NATO Over Inadequate Defense Expenditures

US President Donald Trump has sent letters to the leaders of some NATO states expressing Washington's discontent over the countries' non-compliance with their obligations to increase defense spending, The New York Times reported.

The letters to NATO allies, including Belgium, Canada, Germany and Norway, have been sent as early as last month, The New York Times newspaper reported on Monday.

"As we discussed during your visit in April, there is growing frustration in the United States that some allies have not stepped up as promised…Continued German underspending on defense undermines the security of the alliance and provides validation for other allies that also do not plan to meet their military spending commitments, because others see you as a role model," Trump's letter to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in particular, said as quoted by the media outlet.

Bulgarian Prime Minister: Close Europe’s Borders, Imprison Illegals, Deport Them Back to Africa

Bulgarian prime minister Boyko Borissov has said the migrant crisis can be solved if the EU can seal its external border, detain illegal migrants already present, and deport them back to where they came from.

Speaking after the EU’s failed mini-summit on migration, called to forestall German chancellor Angela Merkel’s partners in Bavaria walking out of government and collapsing her fragile ‘grand coalition’, the Bulgarian leader said he would not accept any plan which involved sending migrants back to the first EU state they arrived in — often border states like his own — in line with the EU’s old Dublin regulations.

“Let’s face it: Greece, Italy and Bulgaria let the migrants through, and they went to Germany,” he said bluntly.

“That’s how the countries of Western Europe were flooded with migrants, and that’s why they want to send some of them back.”

Study: Nearly Half of Women in Sweden’s ‘Vulnerable’ Areas Feel Unsafe After Dark

Nearly half of the women in Sweden’s ‘vulnerable areas’, sometimes referred to as no-go zones, feel insecure in their own neighbourhoods in the evening, according to the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå).
The new report released on Friday claims that 48 percent of women living in Sweden’s often heavily migrant-populated ‘vulnerable areas’ say they feel insecure about being outside, as opposed to women in other parts of the country, where the average is only 30 percent.

For men, the sense of insecurity is much lower in ‘vulnerable areas’, with only 22 percent admitting to feeling unsafe, but the figure is dramatically higher than in the rest of Sweden, where a mere nine percent of men feel insecure.

“In some cases, the insecurity and concern of women in socially vulnerable areas are significantly higher, compared with men in the same areas, as compared to both women and men in other urban areas,” said Brå investigator Sofie Ahlin.

A mob of 200 migrants attempted to storm the Croatian border at Maljevac shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they fought with police who deployed tear gas against them.

French Ambassador Praises Hungarian Prime Minister, Brands Muslims in France and Germany Anti-Semitic

A leaked confidential note from the French ambassador to Hungary has revealed praise for Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s migrant policy, and has drawn ire from French president Emmanuel Macron.
In the confidential note, which was addressed to the Élysée Palace and top European Union officials, Ambassador Eric Fournier defends the Hungarian leader, saying that the migrant policy of Prime Minister Orbán is a “model” for Europe and that many politicians in the west suffer from “Hungaryophobia”, French broadcaster BFMTV reports.

Fournier described Hungary’s migration policy as “having anticipated the problems posed by illegal migratory movements,” and slammed “Anglo-Saxon and French media”, saying: “Any democratically elected regime that does not correspond to their worldview [is called] ‘populist’.”
