Quand le patron de la DGSI évoque un risque de «guerre civile»

Enquête sur une menace que chaque attentat rend plus présente. Le diagnostic n'est pas établi par une poignée d'illuminés en mal de scénarios catastrophe mais par le patron de la Direction générale de la sécurité intérieure (DGSI), Patrick Calvar. «Nous sommes au bord d'une guerre civile», a-t-il déclaré récemment aux députés de la commission d'enquête parlementaire sur les attentats du 13 Novembre présidée par le député (LR) du Rhône Georges Fenech. L'homme à la tête des services secrets ne faisait qu'enfoncer le clou. Quelques semaines plus tôt, il avait déjà averti les députés de la commission de la défense: «Cette confrontation, (voulue notamment par l'ultradroite, NDLR), je pense qu'elle va avoir lieu.

Fahad Qureshi, who founded Islam Net and is considered an Islamic leader in Norway, told a large group of Sunni Muslims that, contrary to media claims that it is only “radicals” and “extremists” who support barbaric punishments for those who violate sharia, regular Muslims support such things, including the “death penalty for homosexuals” and “stoning for adultery.”

Greece marks first day without migrant arrivals after EU-Turkey deal. No migrants have arrived on Greek shores for the past 24 hours, a first since the deal between the EU and Turkey to send back new arrivals came in force on Sunday.

Greece marks first day without migrant arrivals after EU-Turkey deal

The deal will see all new arrivals in Greece returned to Turkey, and aims to deter migrants and refugees from making the dangerous crossing over the Mediterranean Sea. However, France's Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said 800,000 migrants are in Libya hoping to cross to Europe, amid fears the shutdown of the Turkey-Greece route could encourage people to attempt the even more dangerous Mediterranean crossing to Italy. Long line: People queue up for food distributed at a makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonian border near the village of Idomeni. as the government reported zero new arrivals in 24 hours Le Drian told Europe 1 radio that an estimated 800,000 migrants were in Libya, hoping to reach Europe after fleeing conflict and poverty in the Middle East and elsewhere. EU wastes migrant aid millions with 'chaotic and badly managed' projects.

Significantly for the Turkey deal, it found that €20 million worth of projects to deport migrants back to the EU’s neighbouring states are “having little impact”.

It also warned that the EU is paying only lip-service to human rights concerns. “Respect for human rights, which should underpin all actions, remains theoretical and is only rarely translated in practice.” It found that a €10 million project in the Sahara to intercept migrants before they can reach Europe contained “no thought” to a mechanism for responding to human rights violations. It was suspended amid protests from charities and reports that found “numerous human rights violations in detention centres”. EU-funded projects in “awful” Ukrainian detention centres contained no training on compliance with international human rights law, despite the treatment of detainees being “repeatedly criticised” by international organisations. The EU's Turkey deal just advertises its impotence. As a case in point, six months after the European Commission announced another “deal” to relocate 160,000 refugees around Europe, this week it admitted that it has managed a pitiful 937 relocations thus far.

The EU's Turkey deal just advertises its impotence

Apparently undeterred by this miserly achievement, Mrs Merkel went ahead and pretty much single-handedly brokered a ‘deal’ with Turkey that promises refugee relocations to Europe that could run into the hundreds of thousands a year. This despite the fact that Eastern European states have already ruled out taking a single refugee and France says it won’t take more than the 30,000 it has already signed up for; which leaves a wholly inadequate “coalition of the willing” consisting of Germany and perhaps Sweden and the Netherlands. Turkey-EU migration deal under threat as leaders accuse Ankara of blackmail - latest. "The agreement must be acceptable to all 28 member states, no matter big or small," Mr Tusk said at a news conference on Thursday.

After arriving at the summit, David Cameron said the aim of the meeting was "busting the business model of these people smugglers and therefore breaking the link between getting in a boat and getting settlement in Europe". Britain will stand up to EU 'blackmail' and resist migrant quota bid.

Sweden faces moral dilemma over migration. MALMÖ — It takes only a few minutes to cross the Baltic Sea from Denmark to Sweden by high-speed train and over the Öresund bridge.

Sweden faces moral dilemma over migration

At Hyllie station, on the outskirts of the port of Malmö, Swedish police officers in fluorescent jackets board the train, glancing at passports: They’re looking for refugees, particularly for unaccompanied minors. These recently implemented border checks are politically controversial — and a sign the world’s most generous host country is finally starting to feel the strain of its famously welcoming immigration policy. The Swedish Migration Agency’s “buffer” capacity allows for 1,000 refugees per week, just a tenth of the current rate of entry. In 2015, Sweden has accepted the largest number of refugees per capita among EU states. And since September, the country of 10 million received more than 80,000 refugees.

New Dutch EU presidency vows tough line on refugees. AMSTERDAM — Tough on migration numbers, soft on Poland: those were the two takeaway EU messages Thursday as the Dutch government launched its presidency of the bloc, which it will hold for the next six months.

New Dutch EU presidency vows tough line on refugees

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said Europe’s first priority on refugees was to improve efforts to curtail the flow of asylum-seekers arriving into the EU, which reached record numbers in 2015. “The numbers have to come down very much, very considerably,” he told a group of reporters, many of whom had been bused from Brussels to the Dutch capital for the occasion. “We cannot continue with present numbers.” Key to that effort, according to both Rutte and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, is ensuring the creation of a new, beefed-up EU border guard — an ambitious plan supported by EU leaders at a summit in December. Why the EU’s refugee relocation policy is a flop. After eight months of summits, debates and joint declarations on what to do with the hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming into Europe, one figure sums up the EU’s achievement so far: 272.

Why the EU’s refugee relocation policy is a flop

That’s the number of asylum-seekers who have been relocated from the countries of their arrival to elsewhere in the bloc. According to statistics provided this week by the European Commission, 82 migrants were moved from Greece, which saw an influx of 850,000 in 2015. In Italy, 190 migrants left for Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal and Finland. Two-hundred-seventy-two is a fraction of the 160,000 people EU countries are supposed to accommodate under a controversial temporary plan that took months to hammer out, and it speaks to the challenge that European Council President Donald Tusk calls a “delivery deficit.”

Europe’s man problem. The recent surge of migration into Europe has been unprecedented in scope, with an estimated 1 million migrants from the Middle East and North Africa this past year alone, making for a massive humanitarian crisis, as well as a political and moral dilemma for European governments.

But one crucial dimension of this crisis has gone little-noticed: sex or, more technically, sex ratios. According to official counts, a disproportionate number of these migrants are young, unmarried, unaccompanied males. Sweden is seen as Europe's most liberal nation, but violent crime is soaring.
