Outside In: The Trump administration’s plan to remake the Middle East

The only promise that is new about the promised peace plan is the way it will be forced on the Palestinians: no one has promised that the plan itself will be new. With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

New charges: French courts won’t leave Marine Le Pen alone

Marine Le Pen seems to be under attack from all fronts as fresh charges of embezzling public funds are reportedly levied against her. She's also being investigated for posting an order for her psychiatric examination online.

France ends requirement to label goods from West Bank settlements

French authorities have reportedly suspended their insistence on special labeling for West Bank products following a lawsuit alleging that the practice is discriminatory. The France office of the NGO Amnesty International complained about the suspension in a statement Wednesday. “Instead of complying with the request to end imports [from the West Bank], the government has chosen to roll back and suspend the demand for labeling,” the human rights group wrote.

‘Crimes against humanity:’ France to face lawsuit in ICC over nuclear tests in French Polynesia

The move was announced by the French Polynesia’s former president, Oscar Temaru, at a meeting of the UN commission focused on decolonization."This case aims to hold all the living French presidents accountable for the nuclear tests against our country,” he said, as cited by AFP.

Temaru slammed all the tests as “crimes against humanity.” He said that he sees “French nuclear tests as no less than the direct result of colonization” and added that filing a lawsuit was a moral duty to “all the people who died from the consequences of nuclear colonialism.”

The tests had provoked 368 instances of radioactive fallout, Maxime Chan, a member of a local association for the protection of the environment, told the UN committee, adding that the radioactive waste had also been dumped into the ocean in violation of the international rules.

Is Criticizing Terrorism "Mental Illness"?

A 615-page report was recently released, written by an adviser to President Emmanuel Macron, Hakim El Karoui, who is in charge of designing the new institutions of an "Islam of France." The report defines Islamism as an "ideology totally distinct from Islam" and also never addresses the links between Islamism and terrorism. The report also insists on the urgent need to spread "true Islam" in France and adopt the teaching of Arabic in public high schools.

The court's request, for Marine Le Pen to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine if she is sane, indicates that French authorities might be reviving the old Soviet use of "psychiatry" to silence dissidents or political opponents.

The legal offensive against Marine Le Pen was actually added to the financial offensive. Even if Le Pen is not sent to prison, the law seems to have been used to open the possibility of declaring her ineligible for the European Parliament elections scheduled for May 2019.

France accuses Iran over bomb plot near Paris

France has accused Iran's intelligence ministry of being behind a foiled plot to bomb an exiled opposition group near the French capital in a move that risks straining already complicated ties between Paris and Tehran.

The French government announced Tuesday it was freezing assets belonging to two suspected Iranian intelligence operatives, as well as others belonging to Iran's ministry of intelligence and security.

France's decision to take retaliatory measures and go public with the accusations was taken three months after the alleged plot to bomb a meeting of the People's Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) in a suburb of Paris.

Mattis Vows No Cut in Military Support for France in Mali

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday that the U.S. will not reduce its support for the French-led military operations against insurgents in Mali.

"We have no intention of cutting back one bit on that support," said Mattis.

Speaking alongside Mattis at a press conference in Paris, French Defense Minister Florence Parly said the Pentagon chief reassured her that any changes in U.S. operations or forces in Africa would not affect support provided to France.

The Pentagon has been reevaluating its troop presence and operations in Africa after the ambush in Niger last year that killed four U.S. soldiers and four of their Niger counterparts. French forces were part of the rescue force that went to the aid of U.S. forces after the Niger attack.

Emmanuel Macron's Popularity Plunges To 29% As Migrant Crisis Worsens

In the latest sign that the French government is headed for a devastating political and economic crisis thanks largely to the government's embrace of open borders, French President Emmanuel Macron has seen his approval rating plummet to just 29%, the lowest level since his presidency began in the summer of 2017, according to a recent Ifop poll, as voters have rebelled against Macron's attempts to push through badly-needed pro-business reforms and his unwillingness to stem the tide of migrants pouring into the country from North Africa and the Middle East.

MORE EXPERTS CONFIRM THAT FRANCE TOOK DOWN IL-20, & IDENTIFY FRIEND/FOE SYSTEM DID NOT FAIL

FRN proposed that one purely military-strategic aim of the French downing of the IL-20, ascribed falsely to Syria, was to see how Russia would ‘plug the gap’ created by not having an IL-20. This appears to be a procedure aimed at that.

In addition, Russia has also formally stated that their IFF system did not fail. However Russia is overtly implying that because the Russian-built Syrian S-200 system which both Russia and the West alleges was involved in the downing Russian IL-20 did not have Russian codes, the IFF question did not come into play.

Analyst Blames France for Deadly Crash of Russian Fighter Jet in Syria

The Arabic-language website of RT quoted Russian military expert Mikhail Khodarenok as saying on Wednesday that the French frigate named Auvergne has intentionally or unintentionally played a role in the incident.

He noted that the French vessel fired cruise missiles at Syrian targets concurrent with the incident, and said that it further complicated the conditions in the airspace of Syria's Southern coasts and created more problems for the Syrian air defense system by its deployment in an improper place and time.

The Russian military said an Il-20 electronic intelligence plane was hit 35km off Syria's Mediterranean coast as it returned to its home base nearby. All 15 Russian crew members were killed.

Russian defense officials described maneuvers by Israeli fighter jets during the incident as "hostile" and said it had a right to retaliate.

MARINE LE PEN MUST UNDERGO PSYCHIATRIC EVALUATION, FRENCH COURT RULES

In a decision that will undoubtedly outrage conservatives who have sought to highlight the horrors of terrorist groups like ISIS, a French court has ruled that Marine Le Pen, the leader of the party formerly known as the National Front (now National Rally) and runner-up in last year's French presidential vote, must undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether "she is capable of understanding remarks and answering questions."

In other words, the court is treating Le Pen as if being conservative is a mental illness.

The ruling follows formal charges that were brought against Le Pen in March after she tweeted gruesome photos of the bodies of innocent people subjected to horrific deaths at the hands of ISIS. The decision horrified conservatives who accused the French government of attempting to criminalize conservative political speech, as it was only the latest example of a disturbing trend in the European Union, per the Local.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How amazingly old-Soviet Union of the French authorities; but don't think, for even a millisecond, with algorithms in this country crushing conservative views through that nefarious Triumvirate known as Google, Facebook and Twitter, even if the truth and facts on suppressed sites are astonishingly correct, that such an action could not possibly happen in the Unhinged Surveilled State of Amerika.

Court orders psychiatric evaluation for Marine Le Pen, she slams it as ‘mind-blowing’

French politician Marine Le Pen said a court ordered her to undergo psychiatric evaluation over a series of images she posted on Twitter showing Islamic State executions. She slammed the order as a “mind-blowing.”

The president of France's National Rally (formerly Front National) has released an order saying it comes from the magistrates in Nanterre near Paris, calling on her to “undergo a psychiatric examination."

Can Russia Survive Her “Partnerships”? Has Putin Made A Strategic Miscalculation?

Paul Craig Roberts

In an act of intentional deception, Israel used a Russian airplane to cloak an Israeli attack on a Syrian ground position, with the consequence that Syrian air defense missiles downed the Russian airplane with the lost of 15 Russian military lives.

One wonders how Israel does it. President Putin covered up for Israel’s destruction of the Russian IL-20 just as President Johnson covered up for Israel’s murderous attack on the USS Liberty that resulted in 208 US Navy casualties. https://www.rt.com/news/438728-putin-israel-syria-plane/ As Israel gets away with everything, including routine massacres of unarmed Palestinian women and children, there is no reason to expect Israel to change its behavior.

Russia detects missile launches from French frigate off Syria’s coast in Mediterranean

Russian airspace control systems have registered missile launches from a French frigate in the Mediterranean on Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

The French Navy’s newest frigate, FS Auvergne, fired rockets around 8pm GMT Monday, the Russian military said. “Airspace control has recorded rocket launches from the French frigate Auvergne,” the ministry’s statement read. The Auvergne is deployed in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Syria.

French army in Deir ez-Zor? Photo shown by media raises questions about France’s role in Syrian war

A French army vehicle spotted in a photo taken in Deir ez-Zor province has led to questions about the extent of Paris’s involvement in the Syrian conflict. The image was reportedly shared by the US military on social media.

The vehicle in question is a wheeled armored personnel carrier equipped with a turret, which resembles the French army’s Aravis infantry mobility vehicle. It can be seen in the background of the photo, which purportedly shows US troops lending support to Syrian armed groups fighting Islamic State in the eastern province.

: U.S IS BLUFFING ON IDLIB – U.S WOULD ATTACK EITHER WAY BUT HASN’T BECAUSE IT CAN’T

I just finished watching the live kabuki theater of the UNSC meeting on Syria, broadcast by Sputnik News. As usual, the immeasurable hypocrisy of France, US and UK, (FUKUS) ~~~were on public display along with the latest opportunistic treachery by Turkey’s weasel king, Erdogan>>>
***
The writing is on the wall – If Syria and Russia continue to prosecute the operation against US-backed terrorists in Syria, the US and their lackeys will attack Syria, and the US will unleash their Ukro-nazi attack dogs against the Donbass Republics. The implication being that if Syria and Russia desist from the operation to clear Idlib and Syria from the last few remaining abscesses of US-backed terrorism in Syria, the perilous situation will be de-escalated, and US control of Idlib and their terrorists there will become the status quo. Again, for a while. Ostensibly, in return, the big ukrop attack on Donbass Republics will also be shelved, at least for the moment. Or so they seem to be implying.

Of course, as usual the FUKUS powers are lying>>>

French FM warns Syrian govt against use of chemical weapons

The Syrian government will face ‘consequences’ if they launch a chemical weapons attack on Idlib, warned French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian at joint press conference with his Chinese counterpart Wang Li in Beijing on Tursday.

The warning comes after Syrian regime forces amassed around Idlib in the past few weeks as they seek to oust rebels from their final stronghold.

Iran WARNING: US tells airlines not to fly through airspace as WW3 fears rise

The advisory also warns military activities linked to the bloody conflict in Syria have been ramped across Iran's airspace.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are running high following Donald Trump’s controversial decision to pull out of the landmark Iran nuclear deal re-introduce economic sanctions last month.

Flight Service Bureau, which provides safety information on airspace to airlines, said "without seeming alarmist", the deteriorating relationship between the US and Iran must be taken into account when planning flights in Iran's airspace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting just about as serious as is a heart attack: I find myself very alarmed at these developments.

Paris wants to cooperate with Moscow on a number of issues, including in the UN Security Council, despite the existing differences between France and Russia, French Ambassador to Russia Sylvie Bermann told reporters on Thursday on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF).

“President Macron is holding a very honest dialogue with the Russian party … At the same time he finds it very important to develop relations between Russia and the European Union, between Russia and France … We have some differences but even if we disagree on some issues, Russia is a very important partner in the UN Security Council and it is very important to boost this dialogue,” the ambassador said.

Germany May Join Possible Western Airstrikes on Syria - Reports

Germany may join possible airstrikes on Syrian government forces by western nations in the event chemical weapons are used by Damascus, according to local media.

The German Defense Ministry has been mulling over joining possible airstrikes by the United States, the United Kingdom and France against Syrian government forces, Bild reported. The ministry is considering this option in the event of a possible use of chemical weapons in Syria, which they presume will be carried out by Syrian government troops, the outlet said.

Earlier in the day, French Minister for the Armed Forces Florence Parly said that if chemical attacks are carried out in Syria,a response will follow, including those from France.

Macron's Cabinet Reshuffle Heavy Blow to His 'Clean Hands' Image, Analysts Say

Abrupt resignations of two ministers in the government of French President Emmanuel Macron have dealt a heavy blow to the head of state's image as a progressive politician, experts told Sputnik.

French Ecology Minister Nicolas Hulot surprisingly resigned last Tuesday, saying that he felt alone in promoting ecology-related goals and could not pretend that his presence in the government helped to promote environment objectives. Shortly after, the country's Sports Minister Laura Flessel resigned for "personal reasons," but the media reported the move was prompted by a tax inquiry.

'Scallops War' is Latest Bizarre Conflict Triggered By Fish, Salt and Pastries

France has put its navy on standby to intervene to prevent more clashes between French and British fishermen hunting scallops off the Normandy coast. Sputnik looks at the history of conflicts which have broken out over foodstuffs.

French Agriculture Minister Stephane Travert said on Tuesday, September 4, the French navy was "ready to intervene in case of clashes" after fishermen hurled stones and insults in the latest episode of the "Scallops War".

French fishermen accuse the British of unfairly catching scallops in the Baie de Seine during the summer, when French boats are banned because of French regulations aimed at protecting shellfish stocks.

France ‘ready to strike’ Syria if chemical weapons used during Idlib offensive – army chief

France’s top military chief has said Paris is ready to bomb Syria if chemical weapons are used during the Syrian government’s retaking of Idlib province. It comes a week after Russia warned the US of a pending false flag attack.

“We are ready to strike if chemical weapons were used again,” Armed Forces Chief Francois Lecointre told a small group of reporters Thursday.

“They can be carried out at national level but it’s in our interest to do it with as many partners as possible,” he added.

French Farmers Sow Grass in Fields to Protest China Buying Up Thousands of Acres of Countryside

French farmers lit flares and sowed grass seeds on land bought up by firms from China, complaining locals are being squeezed out of the countryside by foreign investors.
Around a hundred farmers converged on land near Châtillon-sur-Indre in the Loire valley, where China’s Hongyang consortium has bought more than 2,000 acres of farmland.

It bought 4,200 acres in the region in 2016, and all told, the Chinese have purchased an estimated €76 billion (£68bn/$88bn) in French land since 2010, including a large number of Bordeaux vineyards — up from 30 châteaux in 2012 to over 160 today, according to The Times.

“The land is there to provide for farmers’ families and to produce food,” complained Laurent Pinatel, a spokesman for the Small Farmers’ Confederation.

“The [Chinese] owners have come here to make a profit, to speculate on agriculture while monopolising the land,” Mr Pinatel.

France set for autumn strikes as unions step up protests

Unions in France on Thursday called for a strike for October 9 in protest at the "ideological policies" of French President Emmanuel Macron's government, while rail strikes have also been scheduled and Air France staff look set to hold more industrial action.

The CGT and FO unions as well as two national student unions denounced "ideological policies targeting the destruction of our social model, favouring notably the explosion of inequality and the breaking of collective rights".

Macron, a 40-year-old former investment banker who swept to power last year promising to end decades of high unemployment and to reform the European Union, is trying to loosen French labour laws and reform the social security system.

The unions said in a joint statement that his policies would have an impact "once again on the weakest, the most insecure and most deprived".

France postpones non-essential travel by diplomats, officials to Iran

France has told its diplomats and Foreign Ministry officials to postpone indefinitely all non-essential travel to Iran. An internal memo seen by Reuters cited a foiled plot to bomb a rally held by an exiled Iranian opposition group near Paris, which was also attended by Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as the reason. The document also describes a hardening of Tehran’s attitude towards France. Paris has been one of the strongest advocates of salvaging a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, which US President Donald Trump pulled out of in May.

In France, In a town called Saumur, gardeners employed by the town made a strange discovery. They went to work on an old church. Behind that church there are old natural caves. When they arrived there they saw 3 men getting in a white van and leaving the place. So they went to see inside that cave. They found ISIS flags, audio and video stuff, newspapers in Arabic, a generator.. So, they immediately alerted the local police, which in turn alerted all the other services of the state : national police, anti-terrorist forces, the prosecutor of the republic, the scientific police, etc..

Is the US and Its Allies Preparing to Bomb Syria? Towards a “No Fly Zone” in Northern Syria?

Are the U.S. France and Britain preparing to launch punitive airstrikes against Syria in reprisal for another (forthcoming) “false flag” Chemical Weapons attack allegedly ordered by president Bashar al Assad against his own people.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton is reported to have told his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, that “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad may be preparing to use chemical weapons to recapture the northwestern province of Idlib from rebels.”

On August 22, at a press conference in Jerusalem, John Bolton, Trump’s (“Humanitarian”) National Security Adviser expressed his “concern” intimating that Assad is preparing to “kill his own people”:

“We are obviously concerned about the possibility that Assad may use chemical weapons again, …

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The tired old premise Bolton is "trotting out" to his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, has one absolutely fatal flaw; there is absolutely no logical reason for Al Assad to do this, now that he, with Russian and Iranian help, have pretty much taken the country back under Damascus' control.

So here is the translation, and please note that it it is primarily for US domestic consumption, because the Iranians, Syrians, and Russians know better: we are being "set up" for a US/NATO false flag in Syria, as the justification for creating a "no fly zone" against the country, if not bombing the hell out of it outright.

The question here for me, is what will Russia do when this happens?!?

IS this the way the US is going to "justify" a war against Russia in Syria?!?

Were I a betting person, I would bet that this will be in place for executing next month, possibly right after the Labor Day holiday here in the US.

President Trump is desperate for something to distract the American people from the events of last week, in terms of the Manafort convictions and the Cohen plea deal, and my guess is, that it will either be military action against Syria, or against Iran, both "favorite enemies" of this administration.

The Russian Defense Ministry has accused the United States, the United Kingdom and France of preparing to carry out new strikes against Syria under the pretext of chemical weapons use by Syrian government forces.

"Western countries' actions in spite of their public statements are aimed at another sharp deterioration of the situation in the Middle East region and the disruption of the peace process on the territory of Syria," ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov noted.

According to the spokesman, militants in Idlib province are preparing to stage the use of chemical weapons against civilians by the government.

Brussels-Backed NGO is Vilifying French Right Ahead of EP Vote – MEP

EU Disinfo Lab's attempt to pin the blame on Russia for the Benalla controversy is actually a Brussels-backed effort targeting French conservatives ahead of the EP vote in May 2019, Nicolas Bay, secretary general of Marine Le Pen's right-wing National Rally, told Sputnik.

The EU Disinfo Lab, a Brussels-based non-governmental organization, has kicked off a Cold War-style scandalous smear campaign ahead of the upcoming European Parliament (EP) elections, said Nicolas Bay, an EP member from France and secretary general of Marine Le Pen's right-wing National Rally, formerly known as the National Front.

On August 10, the NGO published a list of names of Twitter users who were actively criticizing French President Emmanuel Macron and his former security aide Alexander Benalla, who assaulted a street protester during a May Day demonstration in Paris. Many of those who found themselves on the list belong to the electorate of Marine Le Pen.

France bridge fear: 840 structures at risk of COLLAPSE in wake of Genoa tragedy

FRANCE is at risk of seeing a shocking 840 bridges collapse in the same devastating way as the Genoa tragedy that killed 43 people in Italy, a damning audit has revealed.

Emmanuel Macron has been condemned by his government after a terrifying report in the aftermath of Tuesday’s catastrophe which saw a section of the main road linking Italy’s A10 motorway to France fall 45ft - bringing with it dozens of vehicles.

Now four days later, an audit carried out by the French government warns seven percent of the nation’s structures - or 840 bridges - are also at “risk of collapse” in the coming years and may be closed down as a result.

Disturbingly, the names of the bridges are not mentioned in the report.

The document did however, cite lack of funding as the reason behind the weakened infrastructure as well as “insufficient technical staff” required to maintain them.

Paris Mayor Names Street In Honour Of Palestine - French Jews Threaten To Kill Him

A Parisian Mayor was threatened and warned that he will be "blown up" after he named a street in honour of Palestinians who were forced out of their homes by the creation of the state of Israel. The Mayor, Dominique Lesparre and his colleagues at Bezons town hall said that they had received "a multitude of threatening calls." Lesparre was called a "Nazi Communist" and was warned "we will kill you", and "we will blow up the mayor".

After the illegal UN sanctioned partition of Palestine in 1948, Israeli terrorist organisations like the Haganah, Irgun and Stern gang expelled nearly 800,000 Palestinians from their homes and their land. The street in Bezons, in the north west of Paris, is now called Nakba Alley.

Two French rivers disappear underground in large cracks and sinkholes: The Doubs River (Franche-Comté) and the Risle (Normandy)

The Doubs river flows normally in Franche-Comté, France. But since about a week or so, the river has totally dried up over a length of more than 1 km, between Pontarlier and Morteau, although precipitation has been abundant this winter and spring. The river has disappeared, and with it, the fauna and flora. Everything is dead. Two weeks ago, 13km of the Risle River in Normandy also disappeared underground in a large crater. According to geologists, this unprecedented event is due to large cracks and craters in the riverbed.

France Wants The Future To Be Eurasia vs. Eurafrica

Dominique de Villepin, a career diplomat and France’s former Prime Minister from 2005-2007, unveiled a detailed and very ambitious plan to form a Eurafrican Axis while speaking at the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) at the beginning of the week.

French president cancels visit to Israel again

President of France Emmanuel Macron has taken the highly unusual decision of cancelling a trip to Israel for a second time.

Last year Macron said he had planned to visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority in spring 2018 to voice French support for the continuation of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. The trip was postponed to November but sources in Israel are reporting that the rescheduled trip has been postponed indefinitely without any explanation.

The failure of Paris to provide an explanation for the cancellation has led many to speculate on the reasons. Some say that the ongoing controversy surrounding an incident where Macron’s bodyguard was filmed assaulting May Day protesters is the reason for the cancellation.

French feminists spark Twitter war after call to ban ‘sexist’ postcards

But not everyone was as enthusiastic about the idea of a ban on the postcards, with some calling out the “hysteria” and pointing out that the women who pose for the photographs made a choice to do so and don’t need anyone’s help. Some branded the campaign as a “ridiculous fight” that “no one cares about”.

Ever notice that the feminists who scream about sexy women on postcards .... would never be asked to pose for postcards!

Globalist Grip Weakens in Europe as Merkel and Macron Tank in the Polls

The globalist, progressive leaders of France and Germany are seeing record low public approval as patriotism and conservatism grows across the European Union.

France’s President Emmanuel Marcon has seen yet another drop in the polls, with his approval rating falling to its lowest level since he was elected in May 2017.

During this time last year, Macron had a 50 percent approval rating with the French people, his falling popularity being helped in no small part by the current scandal surrounding the young premier and his former bodyguard.

Brexit deal off the menu at May-Macron summit

Theresa May can look forward to an excellent dinner at Emmanuel Macron’s holiday pad, but she shouldn’t expect a Brexit concession for dessert.

Fort de Brégançon, the official retreat of the French president where the two leaders will meet and dine Friday, is a lovely spot, girdled on all sides by the blue waters of the Mediterranean and connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway.

It is certainly worth a visit for the views, the peace and the sea air. But a likely spot for a breakthrough summit on Brexit? Not so much.

‘Explosive situation’: Pro-migrant group forced to end its crucial work in Paris due to violence

Tensions between asylum seekers and police, aggressive drug addicts and government inaction – the volatile atmosphere in a Paris district is forcing a pro-migrant group to cut off their vital volunteer work for newcomers.

Solidarité Migrants Wilson has been distributing food for migrants near Porte de la Chapelle station in Paris' 18th district for 20 months. Yet since August 1 the group has decided to stop their work as they can’t cope with the growing level of violence in the area.

“From the beginning our mission was to serve hot drinks and bread and we have done this for 20 months, every day. During the last month though (July), we started questioning our mission, as we don’t want our volunteers to be put in danger,” Philippe Caro from Solidarité Migrants Wilson explained to RT.

Calais: Migrants Smash Through Car Window, Attack Women Inside with Makeshift Wooden Weapons

Two women who were driving through Calais thought they were facing certain death when a mob of asylum seekers smashed through the car window and attacked them with sticks, a court has heard.

Nord Littoral reports that the pair were driving through the French city’s Beau-Marais neighbourhood on Wednesday evening when, shortly before 10 pm, their vehicle was approaching a roundabout when a group of around a dozen men walked up to the car and surrounded it.

Five or six of the migrants, who were heavily intoxicated from alcohol and had reportedly been stumbling around in the area insulting locals, “started whacking the car with stones and tree branches”, according to one of the women.

“I was so scared. We thought it was the end for us,” she said, describing how one of the attackers struck her in the face with a piece of wood after the men managed to smash through the car window on the passenger side.

Macron to Be Handicapped by Benalla Scandal Till End of His Term – Politician

French President Emmanuel Macron's credibility and public image of a "sinless politician" was seriously undermined amid the scandal involving his former security aide Alexandre Benalla, a member of the country's center-right party The Republicans, Thierry Mariani, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

"Macron is not politically dead but is heavily wounded by Benalla scandal. He would be handicapped and watched after till the end of his term. His supporters and the ordinary French finally realized that he is not different from the old political elite, he is not a 'new era in politics,' he is just a human. He simply lost his political virginity over this scandal. We all remember how during his campaign he tried to portray himself as pure and sinless – a perfect human being," Mariani said.

The Aquarius, chartered by French aid group SOS Mediterranee, was due to leave the southern port of Marseille later Wednesday nearly two months after Italy and Malta refused to let it dock with 630 migrants onboard, sparking a bitter international row who would take them in.

Putin sends his army chief to Israel, France and Germany for the first time

Never before had Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forced Valery Gerasimov traveled on a joint tour abroad.

Yet, why does Gerasimov need to attend meetings in Berlin and Paris, if Germany and France play a secondary military role in Syria?

Macron greenlights military budget boost, but what is he aiming for?

Emmanuel Macron, whose presidency is mired in political rows at home, recently approved a bulky military plan in which more money will be spent on foreign missions. Is he becoming an interventionist, and what is it all about?

French President Emmanuel Macron, a photogenic liberal who promised to fix the stagnating economy and rising unemployment, among other domestic problems, when he entered Elysee Palace, is now focusing on the military. By approving a massive €200bn ($233.5bn) military budget plan for the next five years, Macron has reversed years of defense spending cuts. A new programme signed in July means the budget is set to grow by almost €1.7bn a year until 2023, going beyond Macron's presidential term, and by €3bn afterwards.

Paris Overrun With Sub-Animal Human Excrement...Thanks To Macron And His Master Merkel - LOOK

"The flight was fine, then we boarded a train that took us to the center, and it was there that we experienced the first shock: not only was the Northern station all littered with debris, there was not a white Frenchman! It shocked us to the core."

"Further - more, we hastily settled near the Sacré Coeur, where the situation seems to have been even worse. When we went down into the subway to get to major attractions, then suddenly we found out that in the car me and my wife - only white. It was Friday, about two o'clock in the afternoon!"

"At the Louvre, which is always full of onlookers and tourists, is now deserted, but around armed to the teeth patrols. These people look at you with suspicion and do not remove their finger from the trigger. And this is not ordinary police, but real soldiers in full dress! As it turned out, in Paris for almost a year living in a state of emergency... "

UK prepares for Brexit surrender to Frenchman

Michel Barnier’s pincer is about to close on Theresa May — with the help of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s band of hard-line Brexiteers.

As U.K. MPs prepare to break for the summer, there is growing sense in Westminster that the only realistic option likely to be left open by the time they return in September will be total surrender to Brussels.

That would mean staying in the EU’s single market for the softest of Brexits to avoid either a “no-deal” scenario, likely to be impossible to get through the House of Commons, or a customs border being erected between Northern Ireland and the rest of the U.K. — the only other option the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator has said he will accept.

Chinese Community in Troubled Paris Suburb Patrol Streets Following Robberies

A dozen members of the Chinese community in the Parisian suburb of Créteil have begun to patrol the streets at night following a wave of aggressive robberies as they claim the police do not do enough.

The men, all aged between 40 and 50 years old, patrol the streets of the suburb after dark until around midnight to prevent attacks against members of their community, Le Parisien reports.

One of the men, a 43-year-old named Xu, said that members of the community were tired of seeing people robbed and attacked in the area.

“We are very angry. Women coming home from work late at night are having their bags stolen, with the money, the papers. Some fell, broke their hands. In April, a 75-year-old woman was attacked,” Xu said and added: “We work, we pay taxes. We are here, it’s clean, we do not want to leave.”

As Britain leaves, English on rise in EU — to French horror

Brexit was supposed to be the French language’s chance at a comeback.

For a brief moment after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, Francophones in Paris and Brussels allowed themselves to believe that French would regain its historical standing as Europe’s language of diplomacy.

Instead, perhaps paradoxically, the opposite is taking place. Once Britain leaves the EU, only two, relatively small, EU member countries — Ireland and Malta — will still list English as an official language (alongside Irish and Maltese). It would be everyone else’s second language and thus neutral territory. Officials from non-French speaking countries like Poland, Italy or the Czech Republic are particularly eager to see the global lingua franca become the primary means of communication in the EU.

Macron Slammed for 'Giving Finger’ With 'Not My Lover' Response to Bodyguard Row

On July 24, Macron met with lawmakers from his party La Republique En Marche! and denounced Benalla’s behavior as betrayal.

His 30-minute speech was not all self-flagellation, as Macron also tried to jokingly defuse rumors that relations between him and Benalla, who was fired last week, were too close.

“Alexandre Benalla has never had the nuclear codes. … Alexandre Benalla is not my lover,” he said.

The French president also took aim at the media, claiming they publish “rubbish” rather than try to find out the truth.

OPINION: Law that would quash fake news alarms critics in France

The respected newspaper Le Monde warned against the “perilous nature” of information regulation. Serge Halimi, president and editorial director of its Le Monde Diplomatique edition, asserted that the proposal “reveals both the blindness of those who govern when challenged and their inclination to invent new coercive countermeasures.”

The political opposition sees the measure as a threat to democracy. “The potential risk in this law is if it winds up in the hands of a government with the wrong motives,” warned Hervé Saulignac, a Socialist member of parliament who is leading the opposition. “That’s where it could lead to catastrophe.”

At a time “when the press is threatened around the world, it is better to protect the press,” he added.

“This is nothing less than a crude attempt at controlling information and its means of diffusion,” Jean-Luc Mélenchon, leader of the France Unbowed party, who also ran against Macron in last year’s election, argued.
