The SDPM filed a protest over the unlawful deployment of Calais municipal police during the anti-immigrant demonstration in the city on Saturday. The unsanctioned rally was organized by the PEGIDA movement and ended up in clashes between protesters and police officers.
“One can see a municipal police officer wearing a regulation uniform and carrying law enforcement equipment against the background of a moving crowd,” a statement published on the SDPM official website says, referring to a video uploaded to YouTube by RT France.
Necessary questions needed to be asked.
If the French Socialists are defeated in future parliamentary and presidential elections, should Israel indeed have any preference for contacts with them over the Front National? The very act of voicing such a question may seem heretical to many due to long term cultural constraints, but given the ruling Socialists’ recent negativity toward Israel in the international arena, it must be asked. It is clear that in the event Israel does choose to develop contacts with the FN, the connection should be built up very gradually, constantly reviewing that party’s attitudes on issues important to Israel. This is particularly true if Jean Marie Le Pen returns to the party.
The recent regional elections in France have once again confirmed that the right wing Front National (FN) has become a major force in the country’s politics. In the first round it won 28% of the vote, more than any other party, coming first in six of the thirteen French regions.1 However in the second round, the FN did not win in any region. This was due to several factors, primarily the elimination of small left wing and right wing parties which had not passed the voting threshold, the significant increase in the number of voters and the withdrawal of Socialist lists in two of the regions. Even though the FN has not achieved control of any region, its tally of 6.7 million votes in the second round has set a new record for the party.
Many French Jews have consistently watched the FN with great suspicion. Its founder, the now 87 years old Jean Marie Le Pen, has always been an outspoken anti-Semite, and frequently minimized the importance and extent of the Holocaust. In April 2015 he called Nazi gas chambers a “detail” of history. The older Le Pen was condemned several times for anti-Semitic statements. He was expelled from the FN in August 2015.2
Marine Le Pen, his daughter, has been FN party leader since 2011. In an interview with the German weekly Der Spiegel she explained her views.3 The younger Le Pen is in favor of bringing back the French franc to replace the Euro. She wants France to exit from the European Union. The party is against globalization, and seeks to pursue an economic policy with strong isolationist elements.
The FN does not mention Muslims specifically, but is explicitly anti-immigration and non-integration. Le Pen has come out against alternative school menus which do not contain pork, for example.4 In 2010 she compared Muslims praying in the street to the German occupation of France. It led to a court case, in which she was acquitted.5
But mosques are like synagogues and churches right….? Wrong!
They’re staging areas for taking over that corner of society.
(Note: I differ with Raymond as far as Christianity “abrogating” Judaism is concerned. Yes Jesus laid down new understandings on Judaism which made up the new Christian perspective/faith. Jews however, can accurately lay claim to doing that themselves throughout their great diaspora period. How much impact Christianity had upon Jewish thought, is for others to decipher.)
Kalashnikov ammunition and Islamic State propaganda videos were seized in raids following the closure of a mosque in the Paris suburbs, French authorities said Sunday.
The prayer hall in Lagny-sur-Marne, around 30 kilometres (18 miles) east of the capital, was shut down last Wednesday following a large-scale police operation.
Associated with the traditionalist Salafist branch of Islam, it is the third mosque in France to be closed after the coordinated jihadist attacks on Paris on November 13.
The prefect — the highest representative of the state — in the Seine-and-Marne department said Sunday “7.62mm ammunition for a Kalashnikov rifle and propaganda videos” for the Islamic State group had been found in raids linked to the closure of the prayer hall.
The locations of the raids were not given.

You mean to tell me that he actually believes he would be safer if his security crew would be unarmed? Hardly.
Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” French Ambassador to the United States Gerard Araud defend a tweet he had posted in response to Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump immediately following the terror attacks in Paris earlier this month. Araud described Trump as a “vulture” for a tweet Trump had made earlier in the year following the January attack on Charlie Hebdo.
Araud acknowledged he deleted the tweet, explaining it was immediately as his home country was reeling from the attacks, but doubled down on the sentiment he originally conveyed, which was using a gun to defend themselves in such a situation is something “only in the movies.”
Is there any wonder why Jews are leaving in masse from France to safer shores?
It also goes to underline the necessity for the existence of the Jewish state, a safety valve for Jews during extreme times of anti-Semitism around the world.
Three people claiming to be Islamic State supporters stabbed a teacher at a Jewish school in Marseille, France Wednesday, less than a week after the Paris massacre, prosecutors told Sky News.
They said the teacher was stabbed in the leg and expected to survive.
The suspects approached the teacher while they rode on scooters, prosecutor Brice Robin told Reuters. He said one suspect wore an Islamic State t-shirt, and another showed a picture on his mobile telephone of Mohamed Merah, an Islamic militant who killed seven people in southern France three years ago.
It was unclear whether the attackers were linked to the suspects in Friday’s massacre, which killed more than 120 people and left hundreds of others wounded. France has been on high alert since the attack, and lawmakers are considering extending the country’s state of emergency for three months.
5 devout muslims arrested, police deny them their islamic jihad experience.
Paris (AFP) – French police have carried out “more than 150” raids on suspected Islamists since the attacks on Paris, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Monday, as a source in the southeastern city of Lyon said an arsenal of weapons had been seized there.
Police sources in Paris said “several dozen” pre-dawn raids were carried out in French cities on Monday, including in Bobigny, an eastern suburb of the capital.
Thirteen raids were carried out around the southeastern French city of Lyon, a local police source said.
They led to five arrests and the seizure of “an arsenal of weapons,” including a rocket launcher, a Kalashnikov assault rifle, bulletproof vests, handguns and combat gear, the source said.
Islamic State threatened France with bodies and blood flowing on their streets this past summer, they are now saying that this is just the start.
All the more worthwhile to take the fight to them, literally carpet bomb these bastards into oblivion, not one rock or brick left upon the other. That is the only way to keep them from our doors, blow them off the face of the earth.
Victims: Wounded concertgoers are helped to safety by French special forces. ISIS said that it attacked the rock show because the fans were ‘idolaters’

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the coordinated terror attacks in Paris which killed at least 129 people, and warned that more will follow.
A statement released by the extremist group said it masterminded the horrifying attacks on the French capital in revenge for ‘insulting’ the prophet Muhammad.
The terror group singled out France for its involvement in the bombing campaign against ISIS territory in Iraq and Syria and said it murdered French citizens because the nation ‘boasted’ about its military contribution.
Revenge: A statement in French and Arabic said that France is the highest-priority target for ISIS because of their military intervention in Iraq and Syria
Dropping 20 bombs is not “massive”, this is:
French fighter jets have carried out a series of ‘massive’ air strikes on Raqqa, destroying a key ISIS command centre and training camp in Syria. The heavy bombing raid comes just two days after the group claimed coordinated attacks in Paris that killed 128 people, the defence ministry said. ‘The raid … including 10 fighter jets, was launched simultaneously from the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Twenty bombs were dropped,’ the statement said.
The French jets took off from air bases in Jordan and the United Arab Emirates and using intelligence from U.S. forces, the jets bombed a command centre, recruitment centre for jihadists, a munitions depot and a training camp for fighters, it said. The revenge airstrikes in Syria comes as French police broadcast the name and image of Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old born in Brussels, across Europe, warning that he is very dangerous.
The very same kind Israel is forced to use in Judea and Samaria and in Israel proper due to Islamic terrorists.
President Francois Hollande announced a state of emergency in France late Friday night, implementing border checks to the country

President Francois Hollande announced a state of emergency in France late Friday night after a wave of terrorist attacks claimed the lives of over 150 people.
‘It’s a horror,’said President Hollande of the attacks that took place at six sits including two restaurants, a popular concert hall and a bar outside the Stade de France – where Hollande himself was watching a match between France and Germany.
‘This is a terrible ordeal that again assails us. We know where it comes from, who these criminals are, who these terrorists are.’
It was also announced that the country would implement border controls with checks at all crossings and entry points including roads, rails, sea and aviation.
A curfew has also been set for the city of Paris and Hollande said he will not attend the G-20 summit in Turkey on Saturday.
And yes, it very well could have been much much worse, if they (Islamic terrorists) had waited for the people to file out of the stadium after the game.

Chilling footage has emerged as at least one suicide bomber detonated explosives outside the Stade de France, causing thousand of fans to desperately try to flee the stands during the France and Germany game this evening.
Filmed by a fan, the video shows a French player in possession of the ball before a huge explosion can be heard in the background.
At least one terrorist is thought to have detonated a explosive device whilst trying to enter Gate J of the stadium, killing at least three fans.

WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT: Paris was gripped by terror last night following a series of terror attacks which killed more than 150 people across the French capital. As many as 118 were massacred at a rock concert in the Bataclan theatre, where three terrorists were holding hundreds of people hostage. They detonated their explosive vests when police raided the theatre to rescue the hostages (top and bottom right). Elsewhere, 11 people were killed when fanatics opened fire on a Cambodian restaurant on Rue Bichat (main) and two suicide bombers blew themselves up near the Stade de France where the French football team was playing Germany.
President Francois Hollande had to be evacuated from the stadium and eventually declared a national state of emergency. He has deployed 1,500 extra troops in the city in the wake of the terrifying attacks which ISIS supporters have been celebrating online. Investigators said at least eight attackers were dead by the end of the violence – the bloodiest in Europe since the Madrid train bombings in 2004 – with seven of them having blown themselves up.

A caveat to my US readers.
Le Pen mentions (slaps) the U.S. a few times as well in her blistering speech to Germany’s Merkel and France’s Hollande, but it has to be given some context. For one, US leaders over the decades have been pushing European leaders to develop a more single integrated political “union”, at the expense of common sense and reason. Hence the rise of the EU as a political energized entity.
Wanting a single address in Europe for many US politicians and analysts (out of political expediency), is more preferable to a continent of nations states where people are ruled by themselves. But this only explains in part, what I believe Le Pen has against the US. Her other views about the US, “world dominance” bla bla bla, are just plain loony, they are not valid criticisms.
But her words directed against the leaders of France and Germany, tyrants in every sense of the word, whom Obama no doubt, holds with the greatest of esteem for their socialist policies and hard fisted rule by decree, are spot on.

Or more precisely:
The analogy is correct.
What Muslims do in these streets is showing a political force, political muscle, with the intention of intimidating the local population, for non-Muslims and secularized muslims alike. They are in fact occupiers, saying so is an act of verbalized truth, and a public service.

Le Pen, whom polls see likely to win a regional election in northern France in December, has widened the National Front’s appeal since she took its helm in 2011 by expelling extremists and cracking down on anti-Semitism.
But the party also thrives on concerns over immigration and radical Islam. In a meeting in 2010, Le Pen criticised Muslims praying in the streets when mosques are full.
She will be judged on Oct. 20 over charges of “incitement to discrimination over people’s religious beliefs,” the prosecutor’s office in Lyon said.
Polite golf clap.
The council’s text went even further declaring that “Christian refugees will not put others in danger, they would not attack trains armed with Kalashnikovs and would not gun down journalists in an editorial meeting,” referring to the recent foiled attack by an Islamist gunman on a train, and to the massacre at the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in January.

Further inflammatory statements about refugees by some mayors in France continued to mar the French response to the refugee crisis on Wednesday as well as infuriate the government and Muslim community leaders.
After two centre-right mayors declared this week they only wanted to accept Christian refugees to keep out potential Islamist terrorists, there was even worse to come on Wednesday from the eastern town of Charvieu-Chavagneux.
A memo, unanimously approved by the council, said the town only wanted to accept Christian refugees because they “wouldn’t proceed to cut off the heads of their bosses”.
The town of Charvieu-Chavagneux, is home to around 8,000 inhabitants and stands just 15km from where Islamic extremist Yassin Salhi decapitated his boss in June, before trying to blow up a factory.

ALL MIGRANTS FLEEING WAR AND PERSECUTION CAN COME, SAYS FRENCH PRIME MINISTERGetty

The claim, which would open Europe up to hundreds of millions, if not billions of people able to claim “legitimate” refugee or asylum status, comes as most European countries struggle to cope with processing the hundreds of thousands already entering Europe.
“Each asylum demand must be examined rapidly,” Valls told his fellow Socialist Party members at a rally yesterday.
Those “fleeing war, persecution, torture, oppression, must be welcomed,” he said.
Just taking into account the top 15 countries, ranked by the number of deaths caused by war in 2014, means over 837 million people would qualify for legitimate immigration into Europe, according to Valls. The population numbers of countries currently at war is obviously far higher than this.
According to AFP, Valls quoted the Statue of Liberty, the “gift” given to the United States by France, which reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
But the statue, much like Europe, was never meant to be pro-mass migration. In fact, the words above weren’t added to the statue until 1903, after if became a source of inspiration for migrants.

The alarm was raised after the inexplicable deaths of four dogs following walks in the Georges-Brassens park in the 15th arrondissement, in the south of Paris.
Héléna, whose French bulldog died of convulsions shortly after walking in the park, is convinced that her pet was poisoned.
According to the dog-owner, four dogs died after walking down the same path reserved for pets in the park, strengthening her suspicions.
“There is a very strong suspicion of poisoning. Besides, a man has already found a kind of poisoned meatball or biscuit that his dog ate, just at the beginning of the path, in the bushes,” she told Le Parisien.
Héléna now plans to lodge a formal complaint, as soon as she gets the results of a test on the substance regurgitated by her dog.
Fellow dog-owner Jean-Michel, who often walks through the park with his eight-year-old Pekinese dog, says he is now extra cautious.
“He never goes very far, but since I heard about all this I pay more attention to what he is sniffing,” he said.
Local authorities also appear to be taking the cases seriously, with officials saying on Tuesday saying that they would “comb through the park and its surroundings” on Wednesday morning.
I hope he makes them pay big time.

Paris terror hostage sues French media channelsFrance 2

One of the surviving hostages of the January terror attacks in Paris is suing several French media outlets for broadcasting information about his whereabouts during the siege, which he claims put his life in direct danger.
Lilian Lepère was one of the lucky survivors from the Paris terror attacks that left 17 dead in January. He hid in a canteen closet for over eight hours while the Kouachi brothers – who had just shot 12 people dead at the offices of Charlie Hebdo – took over the printing business where he was employed.
During the hostage drama, Lepère texted vital information to the police, giving them information about the building and the actions of the two Kouachi brothers.
Why? Because they broadcast the fact that an employee was thought to be inside the building while the hostage situation was ongoing. This put Lepère’s life directly in danger, his lawyer claims, considering the two terrorists had mobile phones and radios and were able to listen in to the media reports about themselves.

Members of an anti-drug association have been turned away from a surfing competition in Gironde, south-west France, after allegedly trying to convert people to the Church of Scientology.
With the amount of young people attending the Lacanau Pro surfing competition, the event’s organizers thought that it would be the perfect place to spread information about the dangers of drugs.
Accordingly, the anti-drug association “Non à la drogue, oui à la vie” (No to drugs, yes to life) was granted permission to set up a stall at the event, where members would hand out notices to people about narcotics and get them to sign petitions.
However, two days into the competition, which runs from August 13th to 23rd, the organizers noticed that the stall was not all that it seemed.
After being alerted to some of the conversations taking place at the stall, the organizers reportedly realized that the association was in fact financed by the Church of Scientology.
“They were converting. We were fooled, misled,” a spokesperson for the surfing competition was quoted as saying by Le Parisien.
