    ..... What is reality in France today? Violence. It is spreading. Not just terrorist attacks; pure gang violence. It instills a growing feeling of insecurity in hospitals, at schools, in the streets -- even in the police. The media does not dare to say that this violence is coming mainly from Muslim gangs -- "youths," as they call the in the French media, to avoid naming who they are. A climate of civil war, however, is spreading visibly in the police, schools, hospitals and politics. The Police The most jolting evidence of this malaise was to see more than 500...

    This is the horrifying moment a thug kicks a woman in the back, sending her flying eight steps down a flight of stairs and landing on her face at the bottom. CCTV shows the young woman walking through the metro station in Berlin when the man comes up behind her, holding a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. The yob, dressed in jeans and a leather jacket, aims a targeted kick at her back, toppling her down the stairs, and then walks away.

    Chancellor Angela Merkel was re-elected as leader of the CDU at the party conference on Tuesday, meaning she will be their Chancellor candidate at next year’s election. Merkel received 89.5 percent of the votes from the roughly 1,000 delegates who were present at the conference in Essen, western Germany, according to German media. The vote secures her a further two years as leader of the party. […] While the vote share may sound impressive, it was the second worst score she has achieved and a significant drop from 2014 when 96.7 percent of delegates voted for her, and a further...
  • Freiburg murder: Germans urged not to scapegoat migrants

    Germans have been urged not to scapegoat migrants, after an Afghan youth was arrested over the rape and murder of a German student. A 17-year-old Afghan boy is under suspicion because a DNA test appears to link him to the spot in Freiburg where the woman was attacked in October. Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned Germans not to exploit the crime "for incitement and conspiracy propaganda". Last year's massive influx of migrants fuelled tensions over immigration. The 19-year-old medical student disappeared in mid-October on her way home from a party in Freiburg, south-western Germany. Her body was found in the...

    PARIS — President François Hollande stunned France on Thursday when he announced that he would not run for a second term in next year’s presidential election. In a televised address from the Élysée Palace, Mr. Hollande said that he was “aware of the risks” of a candidacy that would not “rally” enough people to it. “I have thus decided not to be a candidate in the presidential elections,” Mr. Hollande said. Mr. Hollande, a Socialist, ended weeks of speculation about his intentions to participate in a re-election bid that few observers thought he could win. He has had some of...

    Britain's exit from the EU could be blocked, Tony Blair has said, as he ruled out a return to frontline politics because there is “too much hostility” towards him. The former Labour prime minister said he had been accused of “treason” for suggesting that Britain keep its “options open” over Brexit. But he insisted that voters had a right to decide they want to stay in the EU after “scrutinising” Theresa May’s final deal with European leaders.

    France published an official notification Thursday urging businesses to use labels to identify goods produced in the Israeli settlements, prompting a swift condemnation from Israel. It was not immediately clear whether the notice published in the French Official Journal is binding for retailers or a recommendation. A press official with the trade ministry said late Thursday she was not aware of the notification and couldn’t immediately say whether it was mandatory or advisory. In Nov. 2015, the European Union recommended that its member states put special labels on exports from the West Bank, but said the technical guidelines on the...

In her first major address since announcing her intention to seek a fourth term, the German chancellor was also heckled and labelled a “disgrace” as she claimed to be “fighting illegal immigration” in Germany. “Something has changed. As globalization has marched on, debate is taking place in a completely new media environment.

    A German court on Monday ruled that a group of Islamists did not break the law in forming “sharia police” street patrols and telling people to stop drinking, gambling and listening to music. The ultra-conservative Muslim group around German Salafist convert Sven Lau sparked public outrage with their vigilante patrols in the western city of Wuppertal in 2014, but prosecutors have struggled to build a case against them. The city’s district court ruled that the seven accused members of the group did not breach a ban on political uniforms when they approached people while wearing orange vests bearing the words...

Reports from social workers, police, residents, and abuse victims all said the same thing: It’s still happening on an “industrial scale.” In 2014, an independent inquiry led by Alexis Jay, a former senior social worker, found that men of Pakistani origin had groomed at least 1,400 young girls for sexual exploitation over the previous 16 years.

    A Swedish fighter for the terror group ISIS claimed over 50,000 Swedish kroner in benefits while living and working in its Raqqa stronghold. Michael Skråmo, 31, took his wife and four small children to Syria in August 2014, settling in Raqqa, from where he has appeared in a string of propaganda videos, sometimes with his children, posing with a Kalashnikov assault rifle.

    In his second term, the outgoing US president has grown fond of fundamental considerations. Now, at press conferences, his responses are long and philosophical. His speech in Athens, perhaps the last he will make as US president on European soil, fit the pattern perfectly. All in all, it was about democracy and his steadfast belief in the democratic political order. The problem is that its present form is doomed to failure, as some of its most important traits, achievements and outgrowths are now attacking their own foundations. Almost like a schoolteacher, Barack Obama explained to his audience why free press...

Officials and analysts are now looking into methods by which potential terrorists can be spotted early.

The rampage left 130 people dead, 85 of them in Bataclan, where the band, the Eagles of Death Metal, was playing. Meanwhile, investigations have revealed that all nine men involved in the attacks...

    The Sara-Nussbaum-Haus Kindergarten in Kassel has made it clear: no Christmas tree, no Christmas songs, no Christmas spirit. Kassel is a city in central Germany; approximately 12% of the population of 200,000 are foreign or have foreign roots.
