    A new law banning cat-calling and harassment of women on French streets will see men fined on the spot for lecherous and aggressive behaviour, France's women's minister said Monday. The legislation is being piloted by 34-year-old Marlene Schiappa, a feminist and early supporter of French President Emmanuel Macron who wants to tackle sexist male attitudes in public spaces.

    The United States does not support a French proposal to tax the gross revenues of international tech corporations like Google and Amazon, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Saturday. The remarks come as European officials say Washington has softened in recent days on a point that has caused sharp transatlantic tensions in recent years. European authorities have targeted multinational companies that avoid taxation by seeking out cozy arrangements in low- and no-tax jurisdictions. […] In September of this year, French authorities proposed that the European Union impose taxes on gross corporate revenues because they say they have been unable to...

    France on Saturday urged the US Congress not to rip up the Iran nuclear deal, after President Donald Trump decertified Iran’s compliance with the 2015 agreement. “We strongly hope that Congress, which is now responsible for a possible rupture, does not jeopardize the deal,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview with AFP. “If we denounce a deal that has been respected, it will set a dangerous precedent,” particularly in the context of negotiations with North Korea, Le Drian said, echoing other signatories of the Iran deal Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia. On Friday, Trump ignored...

    French President Emmanuel Macron is considering visiting Iran after speaking by phone with his Iranian counterpart as US President Donald Trump said he was “decertifying” the nuclear deal with Tehran, the Elysee presidential office said on Friday. Macron told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that France remained committed to the 2015 nuclear agreement which, besides the United States, was also negotiated with Britain, China, Russia and Germany. “A trip to Iran by the president, at the invitation of President Rouhani, has been considered,” the Elysée said, while the Iranian presidential website said the visit would happen next year. Macron said the...

    Anyone who has accidently sent a text message to the wrong person might have some sympathy with a member of the French intelligent services who landed himself in trouble with his bosses this week. The man, who works for the central territorial intelligence services (SCRT) had been keeping tabs on a suspected Islamist extremist. He wanted to send a text containing important intelligence on his target to a colleague. But the spy got all his phone numbers mixed up and accidentally sent it to the very suspect he had been closely monitoring. The “target” was reportedly quick to respond to...

    French finance minister Bruno Le Maire called Thursday for the European Union to become a cohesive whole, as unified and ambitious as the United States, adding that it was time for Britain to face the consequences of Brexit. The remarks come as the EU emerges from a rocky period of rising nationalism and challenges to its unity. Talks between the EU and Britain, which voted last year to secede, deadlocked in Brussels on Thursday, leaving future trade relations in doubt. “I think what we need within the Eurozone is more unity and more ambition,” Le Maire said during an event...

    The pilots in the U.S. Air Force fly a bunch of planes. The F-15 Eagle, the C-17 Globemaster, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, and the Mirage 2000D… Wait, that can’t be right. The Mirage 2000D is a French plane, and not in service with the Air Force. Four 2,000-pound Joint Direct Attack Munitions are released from an F-15E during a developmental test at Edwards Air Force Base in 2002. Photo courtesy of USAF. Yet, that list is accurate.

    Richards Murphy writes that Boko Haram is the brainchild of some powerful interests targeting the untapped natural resources in Northern NigeriaThe curse of natural resources is apparently real or more accurately, cursed interests in resource exploration are real. This evil often goes about masked as something less sinister. Take for instance the insanity that is todayÂ’s Afghanistan, which began in a fashion not too different from what Boko Haram is acting out in Nigeria today. Somewhere in the convoluted mix of transitions and mishmash of Mujahedeen, Taliban and al-Qaeda was UNOCAL, an oil multinational and its effort to construct pipelines...

    Throughout the 20th Century, Karl Marx’s visage often appeared on communist banners in the guise of a mighty, bearded prophet, the first and greatest in an array of great thinkers that also included Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. So it may be slightly odd and amusing to think of him in his mid-20s living in Paris as the editor of a magazine. Digging into the letters and writings that Marx produced in those years, and the writings of those who knew him, always turns up something interesting—and occasionally something utterly fascinating. The year was 1844. Hoping to unite German and...

    A Frenchwoman nicknamed “Mama Jihad”, who traveled to Syria three times to support her jihadist son was handed a 10-year jail sentence on Friday in the latest case against parents of ISIS fighters. Christine Rivière, 51, was convicted of being part of a terrorist organization. She was given the maximum sentence for her “unfailing commitment” to jihad and for helping a number of young women travel to Syria as part of her attempts to find a bride for her son Tyler Vilus, with whom she was described as having an “inseparable relationship”. Vilus traveled to Syria to fight alongside the...

    Interior Minister Gerard Collomb made it official. France is "in a state of war”. It’s not just rhetoric. Bombs turn up in a posh Parisian suburb. Two young women are butchered at a train station. And it’s just another week of an Islamic World War III being fought in France. From the November attacks in 2015 that killed 130 people and wounded another 400+, to the Bastille Day truck ramming attack last year that killed 86 and wounded 458, the war is real. French casualties in France are worse than in Afghanistan. The French lost 70 people to Islamic terrorist...

    About a third of the way up Paris’s iconic Avenue des Champs Élysées, in front of a Marks & Spencer store, the trunk of a trimmed horse chestnut tree is ringed by two knotted ropes from which dried, wilted flowers hang. The tree and the decaying tributes tied around it are easily overlooked, unless you know what happened here in April. In the nearby lampposts bullet holes remained gouged into the painted green metal like someone had pushed a finger into a pile of play dough. Evidence of when an Islamist militant fatally gunned down 37-year-old French police officer Xavier...

    The suspect was identified by his fingerprints, which matched those taken during seven previous incidents registered by police since 2005, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins told reporters. The attacker didn't have any past convictions in France, Molins said. The man's most recent arrest occurred in the Lyon area Friday — just two days before the train station stabbing. The man was held overnight for shoplifting, then released Saturday and the charges dropped, Molins said. He added that local authorities had no reason to hold him further based on the ID he gave them — a Tunisian passport. ... Some witnesses reported...

    MARSEILLE, France/PARIS, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Two women were stabbed to death and their assailant shot dead by a soldier in the southern French port city of Marseille on Sunday in what officials described as a "likely terrorist act." Police sources said the suspect had shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) in Arabic as he attacked the women, aged 17 and 20, at Marseille's main railway station.
