  • Furious Emmanuel Macron argues with Israeli police during visit to Jerusalem as they try to enter Church of St Anne - a French territory - sparking a row with French officials

    French president Emmanuel Macron today launched a furious English language attack on heavily armed Israeli security guards for following him into a French church in Jerusalem. The 42-year-old head of state erupted in anger after officers broke diplomatic protocol by walking into Saint Anne's, in the city's Old Town, on Wednesday. 'Everybody knows the rules,' Macron shouted. 'I don't like what you did in front of me. Go outside!' It was an echo of a similar row his predecessor Jacques Chirac had at the church in 1996.

    New statistics from the French Interior Ministry have revealed a significant increase in violent crimes with a 12 per cent rise in sexual violence and an 8.5 per cent rise in murders. The statistics, which were collected by the Interior Ministry’s statistics service SSMI, show that sexual violence increased by 12 per cent last year. In 2018, the increase had been even greater at 19 per cent, French newspaper Le Figaro reports. “All French regions have experienced increases in the number of rapes, assaults, and sexual harassment recorded by the security forces in 2019, notably Corsica, Centre-Val-de-Loire, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, and Nouvelle-Aquitaine,”...

    After a royal reception for NATO members at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation News & Politics posted a video online in which it appears that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making fun of President Donald Trump to President Emmanuel Macron of France, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Princess Anne. In the brief clip, Johnson asks, “Is that while you were late?” with a smile on face, to which Trudeau responds, “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top,” followed by the statement, “You just watch his team’s jaws drop...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday admitted he was joking about President Trump with other world leaders — but minimized the incident, saying he had a “positive” relation with Trump and agreed that NATO countries should spend more on defense. “I have a very productive and positive relationship with Mr. Trump … we will continue to have an excellent relationship,” Trudeau told reporters during a briefing in London at the NATO meeting. “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top — ‘Oh, ya, ya ya,’” Trudeau said. “You just watched his team’s jaws drop...
  • Trump's Canny Diplomatic and Psychological Feints on the International Stage

    12/04/2019 5:40:58 AM PST · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | December 4, 2019 | Austin Bay
    Three years ago, Donald Trump began a rhetorical offensive targeting the governments of NATO nations that chronically failed to meet their allied defense financial commitments. With bombastic huff, Trump intimated that allies pay their share or America might walk. It's 2019. Few NATO members currently meet the 2% GDP defense commitment. However, several once-laggard NATO nations have increased military spending, and the alliance is stronger for it. The era of blithe freeloading has ended. Cheapskates like Germany pay a price in lost prestige. America not only hasn't walked; it is modernizing its forces. Earlier this year, President Trump began grousing...

    As the impeachment inquiry heats up in Washington, with the House Judiciary Committee set to hold its first public hearing Wednesday, President Trump has found himself in tense moments with fellow world leaders at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit in London. The leaders, who are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the transatlantic alliance, are meeting Wednesday at a golf resort outside of London to discuss threats including terrorism, arms control and China. But tension among the leaders of NATO member countries over the alliance's role also appears to pose a threat to the partnership.

    PARIS -- French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte's Grande Armee finally met its match when it encountered frigid winter weather in Russia. Perhaps cold weather could work in France's favor this time, as French public-sector workers have announced a massive general strike for this week just as temperatures are expected to plummet to near zero degrees Celsius. Not much has changed since Napoleon invaded Russia in 1812: The French still bring out the scarves before summer officially ends. And leftist union leaders here still haven't figured out how to get their way without taking the citizenry hostage. The national strike was scheduled...

And early Wednesday brought another surprise, as a brief video surfaced that showed grinning world leaders at a Buckingham Palace reception apparently commiserating about Mr. Trump’s unorthodox ways. ...

    Winfield House London, United Kingdom 2:25 P.M. GMT PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much. It’s great to be with President Macron of France. And we’ve had a fairly long relationship and a very good one. And we were just discussing certain things, and then we’re going to have a long conversation afterwards. I want to, first of all, before we begin, I want to pay my respects to the great warriors that you lost in Mali — 13, and helicopters. It was very sad. I’ve gotten a report on it. We talked about it. And please give my condolences...

    LONDON — President Trump sat down in a gilded chair beside President Emmanuel Macron of France on Tuesday, prepared for what has become a ritual of sorts on his home turf at the White House: He holds forth as another leader is left to smile stoically through his jokes, jabs and insults. But Mr. Macron changed the script. By the time their 45-minute appearance at the American ambassador’s residence in London was over, the French leader had managed a rare role reversal, putting Mr. Trump on the defensive about his vision for NATO and his handling of a military conflict...

    President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron held a tense meeting Tuesday on the sidelines of a NATO summit, with Trump at one point telling the French leader he could send him some "ISIS fighters" if he wanted them. “Would you like some nice ISIS fighters? I can give them to you,” Trump said with a slight smile at the meeting, which was carried live on cable news. “You can take every one you want.” “Let’s be serious,” Macron replied sternly, reasoning that most ISIS fighters came from Syria, Iraq and Iran and disputing Trump’s common refrain that the terrorist...
  • White House considering tariffs of up to 100% on $2.4B of French goods

    The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced on Monday that it is considering tariffs as high as 100% on up to $2.4 billion worth of French products, following an investigation that concluded France's digital tax "discriminates against U.S. digital companies, such as Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon." Why it matters: The proposal underscores the administration's willingness to expand the scope of President Trump's trade war beyond just China and use tariffs as a weapon to retaliate against other countries. It was announced around the same time that Trump landed in London for a NATO summit, where he will come...

How more challenging and scary has being a Jew in Europe become? "It's very challenging, as an individual and as a community." You're referring to fears of anti-Semitism? "Yes. We witnessed an attack on Yom Kippur in eastern Germany, not ISIS - Neo-Nazis. In the last years, no Jews were killed by neo-Nazis in Europe. It's a whole new phenomenon." "We have problems today from the left and the right and the center. This is...

    Some French lawmakers want to ban Black Friday, the post-Thanksgiving sales event that has morphed into a global phenomenon. A legislative committee passed an amendment Monday that proposes prohibiting Black Friday since it causes “resource waste” and “overconsumption.” The amendment, put forward by France’s former environment minister Delphine Batho, will be debated in the National Assembly next month.
