    French lawmakers were set to vote Sunday on a controversial immigration law that has exposed unprecedented divisions in President Emmanuel Macron’s young centrist party. At least one MP, Jean-Michel Clement, is planning to vote against the law — at a cost of being kicked out of Macron’s En Marche (Republic On The Move) party — while several others said they would abstain. The lower-house national assembly was supposed to vote on the bill Friday, but the fractious debate stretched into the weekend due to more than 1,000 amendments proposed by MPs. More than 200 of the changes were suggested by...

    A widely-discussed proposal to ban public wearing of face-covering garments including the burqa and niqab is set to be voted on in Denmark’s parliament. Minister of Justice Søren Pape Poulsen, who was scheduled to present the proposal in parliament for a first round of voting on Thursday, said that a passing of the proposal into law would not result in police forcibly removing women’s burqas. Women wearing the burqa in public would be fined or asked to go home, the minister told newspaper Politiken. “If they live nearby, they will be asked to go home,” Poulsen said. A further option...

    A senior official at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) allegedly granted asylum to more than 1,200 applicants without valid legal reasons for their approval. She has since been removed from her position. The employee headed the BAMF office in Bremen and worked with three lawyers who assisted her in wrongfully granting asylum to refugees from other federal states, according to joint research conducted by Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), NDR and Radio Bremen. Many of the applicants were said to have been Yazidis, a Kurdish religious minority living mainly in northern Iraq and northern Syria. During the reign of...

    Angry youths in a deprived area of the French city of Toulouse have attacked police, torched cars and set fire to garbage during two nights of clashes that have led to 18 arrests, police said Tuesday. The rioting in the Mirail area of the southern city, a high-crime neighborhood once home to several jihadists, was apparently sparked by the death of a local man in prison and an identity check by police on a veiled woman on Sunday. After nearly four hours of clashes on Sunday night that saw gangs throw stones at the local police station and set fire...
  • Germans fear the rise of 'lawless' neighborhoods, poll shows

    A poll published on Sunday by Germany’s biggest tabloid, Bild, found that just a little over half of Germans believe there are neighborhoods in the country so dangerous that even police fear to tread there. About 51 percent of participants said that they believed lawless “no-go” zones existed, whereas 41 percent said there were no such areas in Germany. About 77 percent said they wished police would crack down harder on crime syndicates. The somewhat dubious concept of lawless areas in Germany has been promoted in no small part by disproportionate reporting of crimes committed by migrants and foreigners in...

    The number of Salafists in Germany has increased twofold since 2013, the interior ministry said Wednesday, surpassing December’s “all-time high.” The number of individuals classified as Salafists by regional authorities in state offices for the Protection of the Constitution reached 11,000, the ministry said, confirming an earlier report from German newspaper Tagesspiegel. Five years ago, the German intelligence agency BfV placed this number at 5,500 — half of the current total. Salafism is a fundamentalist Islamic ideology. Security authorities see Salafism as a potential entry point to Islamist terrorism. Just under 5 million Muslims live in Germany, meaning that the...

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx, the head of the German Bishops’ Conference, has called on Christians to seek contact to Muslims and non-believers in view of what he described as an era of “verbal, political and military rearmament.” In comments to be delivered at a religious procession in Munich on the Christian holy day of Good Friday, Marx said Christian believers should say “no” when hate and violence were preached and condemn attacks on churches, synagogues or mosques. He urged those of the Christian faith to go the path of non-violence and love when encountering people of other religions or those who...

    A Swedish MP who was elected to the Riksdag as part of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats and was recently removed from their list for the 2018 general election has revealed that he wants to become an immigrant in Hungary in order to escape immigration. Kent Ekeroth told newspaper Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) that Sweden should learn from Hungary, where he will emigrate later this year, because they have “no immigration”. “To start with, they have no immigration. That’s the most important thing. And they value their own culture highly and the grounds on which European civilization rests,” he said. Ekeroth’s name...

    After the father of a Jewish child at a Berlin primary school told a newspaper about anti-Semitic bullying experienced by his daughter, Germany’s Jewish community called for more action on Tuesday. A girl at the Paul-Simmel-Grundschule was reportedly told she deserved to be beaten and killed by a schoolmate when she admitted to being Jewish, her father told the Berliner Zeitung on Saturday. “Our daughter was accosted by Muslim students because she does not believe in Allah”, he claimed. According to the father, the young girl was asked last week by a fellow classmate if she was a Jew. When...

    Police have been accused of “victim blaming” children who were targeted by grooming gangs in the Telford sex abuse scandal. Officers investigating child sexual exploitation in the town were sent an internal memo telling them “in most cases the sex is consensual”. Some of the victims were just 11 years old and specialist child abuse lawyer Dino Nocivelli said: “This is victim blaming at its worst. “The authorities just don’t seem to get it. Children cannot agree to sex. “Just because a child is not being physically forced to carry out sexual acts, it doesn’t mean they consented.” A Mirror...

    Despite a death rate higher than its birth rate, Germany managed to grow by two million people in two years due to high levels of immigration, statistics released on Tuesday showed. While no conclusive number have been released for net migration last year, the federal statistics agency Destatis estimated on Tuesday that it stood at around 450,000 more arrivals than departures from the country. Immigration outstripped emigration by 1.15 million in 2015, slowing slightly to 500,000 in 2016. That accounted for a rise in the total population by around 2 million inhabitants in a three-year period. By the end of...

    Germany’s statistics office has recorded the highest number of immigrants in postwar history. Net immigration increased by 49 percent in 2015 and for the first time, most of the arrivals were not from Europe. […] The (Federal Statistics) office registered in 2015 under two million immigrants arriving in Germany, while 860,000 departed again. The figures are based on the numbers from January to August 2015 and estimates for the four remaining months of the year.

    Massachusetts college librarians state that wishing someone a “Merry Christmas” or saying “God bless you” if they sneeze is an act of “Islamomisic microaggression”. Librarians at Simmons College in Boston have banded together to write what they have titled The Anti-Oppression Library Guide. While controversial, the guide is intended as a resource to promote equality and limit religious oppression. While the guide is not an official policy of Simmons College, some of its beliefs have already made their way to reports in mainstream media outlets like Fox News. Librarians at the college argue that “Islamomisic Microaggressions are commonplace verbal or...

    There were 546 reported incidents of Islamophobia in Spain in 2017, according to a report released Friday by the Citizens’ Platform Against Islamophobia (PCI). […] The most frequent type of incident cited were those of “defamation, slander, and libel,” in which Muslim men were accused of being “violent, sexist, chauvinists, pedophiles, backwards, intolerant, or terrorists,” while Muslim women were characterized as being “submissive, oppressed, ignorant, or backwards.” The second leading category of incidents was those of discrimination or negation of rights. The report used the European Union’s definition of discrimination, citing it as the “conduct, action, or omission by which...

    The New York Times has broken ranks with the the establishment media, publishing an effective mea culpa over the mainstream denial of migrant-related gang crime in Sweden. The paper — which previously mocked President Trump for highlighting Sweden’s migrant crime problems — published over 1,500 words on the subject in its Sunday edition this weekend, stating: Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. The country’s murder rate remains low, by American standards, and violent crime is stable or dropping in many places. But gang-related assaults and shootings are...

    Reuters) - Hungarian leader Viktor Orban called on Sunday for a global alliance against migration as his right-wing populist Fidesz party began campaigning for an April 8 election in which it is expected to win a third consecutive landslide victory. Popular at home but increasingly at odds politically and economically with mainstream European Union peers, Orban has thrived on external controversy, including repeated clashes with Brussels and lately the United Nations. Those conflicts, mostly centered on migration since people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa flooded into Europe in 2015, have intensified as the elections approach...

    Dr Ali Selim of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland has said he advocates female circumcision. Female circumcision, also termed female genital mutilation (FGM), is illegal under the Criminal Justice (Female Genital Mutilation) Act 2012. It is estimated that 5,790 girls and women living in Ireland have experienced FGM and some 2,639 girls here may be at risk of being subjected to it. Under 2012 legislation, not only is FGM prohibited in Ireland, it is also a criminal offence for a person to take a girl to another country to undergo it. “I’m not an advocate of female genital mutilation...

    The number of Germans who have acquired weapons permits has risen considerably over the past two years. Having the requisite documentation allows people in the country to carry things like non-lethal gas pistols in public. In January 2016, just under 301,000 people had such a permit; in December 2017 there were over 557,000. Weapons retailers say that defensive blinding flashlights, stun guns and gas spray are selling so well they are having trouble keeping shelves stocked. Self-defense courses are also increasingly popular. Classes at Taekwondo clubs, fitness studios, and even municipal community centers are attracting more and more participants. A...

    Magdi Allam, an Egyptian expatriate who fights Islamism in Europe, wrote in Milan’s Il Giornale that he was leaving “because this Church is too weak against Islam.”Allam is right.Five centuries after the Battle of Lepanto, Catholic leadership exemplifies dhimmitude. Catholic leaders appease Islam by sacrificing both the victims of violent persecution and the Church's moral credibility on the altar of ecumenical dialogue with an ostensibly Abrahamic religion.The Church's approach reflects the ideas of French-Catholic scholar Louis Massignon, who became involved with archeological and diplomatic ventures in North Africa and the Middle East during the early 20th Century. As chairman of the Department of...
