Not long ago, White Genocide or the “Great Replacement” as it’s often called on continental Europe — that is altering the demographics of a country from being ethnically European to non-ethnically European — was dismissed as a crazy far-right fantasy.

(Diversity Macht Frei)

Now brown people, leftists and Jews are openly celebrating it and calling for it to be speeded up.

Here we have a leftist march in Paris, called by a trade union collective to protest against reforms to work regulations. But the leftists just can’t help themselves, they can’t stay focused. They have to throw a bit of White Genocide in there too.

Estimates of the numbers of those attending this march range from 200,000 to 500,000, so this wasn’t some marginal thing.

But it’s not just in France that this is happening. Mark Collett recently posted an image collage of Jews also celebrating White Genocide. “This Jew will replace you”, “Lol your grandkids are gonna be brown”.

Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico, recently trolled Trump and boasted that brown people were taking over his country.

Le Pen’s deputy quits as tensions engulf French far right

PARIS (AP) — The right-hand man of French far-right leader Marine Le Pen quit the National Front on Thursday, the culmination of a feud that erupted after her bruising defeat in May’s presidential election, laying bare party divisions and risking more.

Florian Philippot, who made a meteoric rise to party vice president and Le Pen confidante, was the most visible figure in the party after Le Pen. He was a familiar face on French TV — where he announced his exit.

Philippot played a key role in Le Pen’s effort to scrub clean her party’s racist and anti-Semitic image to make it more voter-friendly. But he was also behind Le Pen’s controversial proposal for France to leave the eurozone. Some Philippot critics believe the proposal harmed her in the presidential vote, when she lost to centrist Emmanuel Macron.

Philippot, 35, announced his departure on a morning news program on France 2 television after being demoted by his boss and relieved of his responsibilities for party strategy and communications late Wednesday.

“I was told I’m vice president of nothing … I don’t have the taste for ridicule. Of course, I’m leaving the National Front,” Philippot said.

Philippot, with degrees from France’s top schools, joined the National Front six years ago and quickly rose to the top echelons, irking some longtime officials wary of his left-leaning bent and ideas, like returning to the French franc currency, that they feared distracted from the party’s fundamentals: immigration and national identity.

But he and Le Pen were inseparable throughout the presidential campaign.
Philippot’s exit comes as the National Front is in the midst of a major makeover, to include changing the party’s name that dates from its founding in 1972 by Le Pen’s father, Jean-Marie Le Pen.

Philippot claimed that the party’s “old demons” were sneaking back into the party, a reference to hard right values.

“I regret his (Philippot’s) departure,” Le Pen said Thursday on the LCP TV station. But she added that “the Front will get over it without difficulty.”

She wasted no time in starting to fill Philippot’s shoes, replacing his communications role with four people, a chief and three spokespeople. His name was scratched from the lists of party officials on the National Front website.
The power struggle unfolded after Philippot decided to start a political group, Les Patriotes, within days of Le Pen’s election defeat and without consulting her. It has played out on TV in numerous interviews by Philippot and party officials. Le Pen and Philippot never had a direct meeting about their differences, both say.

Philippot has said his served as a think tank aimed at broadening the National Front’s support base with a modern, more open approach to politics. But Philippot’s critics saw it as both a diversion from the task of rebuilding the party, and a bid to lay the groundwork for his own political movement.

Philippot was playing the role of victim, Le Pen said. But with the creation of his association, “there was a strategy to raise tensions … I think the goal was to push himself out.”

Party secretary-general Nicolas Bay said on France Info radio Thursday that the group “has all the characteristics of a micro political party.”

Le Pen recently gave Philippot an ultimatum to leave the group’s presidency. But he refused, saying Wednesday that “you don’t remake a party with a pistol at your head.”

In her statement demoting Philippot, Le Pen said his “double responsibilities” posed a “conflict of interest.”

Philippot has insisted that he wasn’t plotting an exit strategy. But the shadow of a potential schism fell over him. No one in the National Front forgets the 1998 departure of Bruno Megret, the right-hand man of Jean-Marie Le Pen, who took numerous officials with him.

Shortly after Philippot announced his departure, others said they were leaving, including Philippe Murer, Le Pen’s economic and environmental counselor. Sophie Montel, a close ally of Philippot and vice president of his association, also left the party Thursday, days after being ousted from her role as a regional head of the National Front.

“There will be those who are disappointed because in a divorce like that … there always are,” Luis Aliot, another vice president and Le Pen’s companion, said on BFM-TV. “But most will be relieved.”

France warns against Kurdish independence vote

UNITED NATIONS — France’s top diplomat on Monday urged Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region to cancel next week’s planned independence vote, warning that now is not the time to go it alone.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian, speaking on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, echoed widespread international concern about the referendum.

The Kurdish region has been de facto self-governing since before the fall of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi dictatorship, and has strained ties with the Baghdad government.

Western capitals have been grateful for the Kurds’ support in the battle against jihadist extremism, and foreign investors are eyeing their oil and gas fields.

But diplomats fear a vote to break away from Iraq proper would undermine Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s central government and the fight against the Islamic State group.

“There are important clauses on autonomy in the Iraqi constitution,” Le Drian said.

“They should be respected, accepted and protected in dialogue between Baghdad and Kurdistan,” he said. “We think any other initiative would be untimely.”

Le Drian was speaking shortly after Iraq’s Supreme Court issued a ruling demanding the suspension of the vote that Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani has called for Monday.

“In Iraq, we’re preparing for life after Daesh,” he said, using the French government’s preferred acronym for the jihadist Islamic State group.

This post-IS Iraq, he argued, should be based on Iraq’s federal constitution and respect all the communities that make up the country’s “territorial integrity.”

Barzani has repeatedly said he will not cancel the non-binding referendum, which has drawn thousands of his supporters to vast nationalist rallies in stadiums.

But such a move could upset Turkey and Iran — which have their own restless Kurdish populations — and strain ties with the Kurds’ Western sympathizers.

Even Washington, long a strong backer of the Kurdish region as the most stable and pro-Western part of Iraq, has urged Barzani not to rush for independence.

Only Israel supports Kurdish independence, although Russia’s state-run energy firm Rosneft said Monday it hopes to invest in the region’s pipeline network.

France leads push to urge Trump to save Iran deal

UNITED NATIONS (AFP) — France stepped up global efforts to convince US President Donald Trump not to abandon the Iran nuclear deal Monday, suggesting a way could be found to prolong its effects.

Trump has signaled he is ready to declare Iran in breach of its side of the 2015 accord — which he has branded the “worst deal ever” — as early as next month.

And if the White House “decertifies” Iran’s compliance, this would open the way to the US Congress reimposing sanctions and perhaps provoke Iran to itself pull out.

The other world powers — France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia — who signed the accord continue to see it as the best way to prevent Iran from building a bomb.

But Washington argues that by pursuing a banned missile program and fomenting militant violence in its region, Iran is in breach of the spirit of a weak deal.

Not all US officials share Trump’s total antipathy to the pact, but they want stronger controls on Iran’s ability to resume weapons development when it begins to expire.

America’s European allies are desperate to save the deal and — as world leaders gathered on Monday in New York for the UN General Assembly — France spoke out.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned that scrapping the “essential” agreement would launch a regional arms race between “neighboring countries.”

But he also said: “France will try to persuade President Trump of the importance of this choice, even if it can be completed by work for after 2025.”

Le Drian was speaking ahead of a meeting between Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, who also suggested in a speech last month that the accord could be improved.

Under the deal, limits on Iran’s uranium enrichment will begin to expire in 2025 under “sunset clauses” and critics have said this is the weakest part of the deal.

“It’s essential to maintain (the agreement) to prevent a spiral of proliferation that would encourage hardliners in Iran to pursue nuclear weapons,” Le Drian said.

Under the nuclear deal, Iran surrendered much of its enriched uranium, dismantled a reactor and submitted nuclear sites to UN inspection.

For their part, Washington and Europe lifted some sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear program, while retaining others tied to its “destabilizing” actions.

Hawks in Washington, with winks from Trump and some in his inner circle, are calling for tougher sanctions on Iran’s ballistic missile program.

These, they argue, would not breach their side of the nuclear-only deal.

Meanwhile, Trump’s top foreign policy officials, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have upped their rhetoric.

Haley went to Washington this month to deliver a speech laying out the case for Trump to find Iran in breach of the deal when he reports to Congress on October 15.

Tillerson is reportedly not convinced that destroying the accord is the best way forward, but tougher measures from allies would help him make this case to Trump.

Iran and North Korea will dominate the annual gathering of world leaders, which opens on Tuesday with a series of addresses by Trump and Macron among other leaders.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is scheduled to speak on Wednesday.

Tillerson will join his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday for a meeting of the so-called E3+3 on the nuclear deal, chaired by the European Union.

Turning to North Korea, Le Drian said “very strong” pressure from sanctions would compel leader Kim Jong-Un to negotiate an end to his missile and nuclear programs.

“Military action is not required,” said the foreign minister. “To bring North Korea to the negotiating table, the only possible way is to apply very strong pressure.”

The UN Security Council last week imposed a new raft of sanctions on North Korea after it carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.

The council will meet on Thursday to discuss ways of enforcing sanctions, which depends largely on cooperation from China, North Korea’s largest trading partner.

Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ unarmed man attacks 7 in Toulouse

https://www.timesofisrael.com/shouting-allahu-akbar-unarmed-man-attacks-7-in-toulouse/

 

A man shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) was arrested in the French city of Toulouse on Wednesday after attacking seven people, among them three policemen, on a main city street.

Local police said the 42-year-old man suffered from mental illness and had been released from a psychiatric hospital in April.

He was apparently unarmed and used his fists.

The man attacked four pedestrians and three police officers.

The three police officers and two bystanders were slightly injured.

A police official said the incident was not being treated as terrorism-related. “Allahu Akbar” is Arabic for “God is great.”

Jewish family beaten, robbed in ‘anti-Semitic’ home invasion near Paris

Three members of a prominent French Jewish family were kidnapped, tied up, brutally beaten and robbed on Thursday night in their home in the suburb of Livry-Gargan northeast of Paris, French authorities said Sunday.

According to the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA), three individuals broke into the house Roger Pinto, the president of the Siona group representing Sephardic Jews, by cutting through the home’s window bars. They then cut off the electricity in the house, tied up Pinto’s son, and held and beat his wife. It was only on Friday morning, several hours later, that Pinto managed to discretely contact police, causing the intruders to flee.

According to the BNVCA report, the unidentified attackers told their victims, “You are Jewish, you have money.”

The assailants, black men in their 20s or 30s, according to the victims’ description, took jewelry, cash and credit cards.

The Pintos were taken to hospital for treatment. They suffered some minor injuries but were deeply traumatized, the report said.

The BNVCA called the attack “manifestly anti-Semitic” and “premeditated,” and said the family was “threatened with death” and “violently beaten.”

In a statement on Sunday, CRIF, the umbrella body of French Jewish organizations, said it “powerfully condemns the very violent and anti-Semitic aggression.”

“After the atrocious murder of Sarah Halimi in her home, this new attack must bring the authorities in our country to a heightened vigilance and deterrence-inducing steps,” he added.“This odious act is proof, if we needed any, that the Jews of France are especially threatened in the street, and even more disturbingly, within their very homes,” CRIF President Francis Kalifat said.

The Jewish groups were joined by France’s interior minister Gérard Collomb, who said the initial findings suggested “the motivation for this cowardly act seems directly related to the religion of the victims.”Halimi, a 65-year-old Orthodox Jew, was killed by her Muslim neighbor in April in Paris. Prosecutors dropped the anti-Semitic accusation from his indictment, drawing fierce condemnation from the Jewish community.

“Everything will be done to identify” and arrest the perpetrators, he added in a statement.

The Union of Jewish Students of France also condemned Thursday’s attack, lamenting “the insecurity of French Jews.”

Israel’s ambassador to France, Aliza Bin Noun, offered her own “support to the Jewish family in Livry-Gargan” and “strongly condemn[ed] this anti-Semitic attack” in a tweet Sunday.

The incident is one of several cases in France in recent years in which criminals singled out Jews out of the apparent belief that they have money.

In 2014, three men broke into the home of a Jewish family in Creteil near Paris. One of them raped a young woman there while another guarded her boyfriend, whom they took prisoner, and a third went with the couple’s credit card to extract cash from an ATM machine. They too allegedly said they targeted the couple because the victims are Jewish.

Occurring amid a major increase in anti-Semitic violence in France accompanying Israel’s war with Hamas in Gaza that year, the Creteil incident echoed for many the traumatic murder and torture in 2006 of Ilan Halimi, a Jewish phone salesman who was abducted by a gang led by a career criminal with a history of targeting mostly Jewish victims.

Some French Jews regard the 2006 Halimi murder as the turning point in the emergence of a wave of violence against Jews in France and Belgium, in which more than 12 people have died since 2012 in at least three jihadist attacks on Jewish targets.

France: North Korea could nuke US, Europe ‘within months’

PARIS — France’s foreign minister warned Friday that North Korea could have the capacity to deliver a nuclear strike on the United States and even Europe “within months.”

Jean-Yves Le Drian called the situation following a string of missile tests by Pyongyang “extremely serious” and urged the reclusive state to turn to dialogue to ease spiraling tensions.

“We see a North Korea whose objective is to have missiles capable of transporting a nuclear weapon tomorrow,” Le Drian told RTL radio.

“In a few months, that will be a reality. At that moment, when it has the capability to hit the US, even Europe and at the very least Japan and China, with a nuclear weapon, the situation will be explosive.”

Early on Tuesday, North Korea fired an intermediate-range Hwasong-12 over Japan, prompting US President Donald Trump to say that “all options” were on the table in an implied threat of preemptive military action.

The UN Security Council denounced Pyongyang’s latest missile test, unanimously demanding a halt to its program.

Le Drian called on Pyongyang to “return to the path of negotiations” in a bid to ease tensions.

A joint mediation effort put forward by China and Russia would involve a mutual pause in both missile tests by North Korea as well as the joint South Korean-US military exercises by Seoul.

Pyongyang has also threatened to fire rockets towards the US Pacific territory of Guam.

In July, it carried out its first two successful tests of an intercontinental-range missile, apparently bringing much of the US mainland into range.

Australian woman, 26, caught up in Barcelona terror attack has cheated death THREE times this year after narrowly avoiding ISIS attacks in London and France

  • Julia Monaco, from Melbourne, is on holiday in Barcelona with friends
  • She and her friends were forced to hide in a store when the chaos erupted
  • Van plowed into pedestrians in city’s historic Las Ramblas district on Thursday 
  • The attack killed 13 people and injured more, including a woman from NSW 
  • The woman is in hospital in a serious but stable condition, Foreign Minister said 
  • Two men, believed to be from Victoria, were ‘directly affected’ by the attack

A young Australian woman has cheated death for the third time this year after terrorist attacks took place in three different cities that she was travelling through.

Julia Monaco, 26, from Melbourne, was in a shopping mall with a friend when a van plowed into pedestrians in the Las Ramblas district of Barcelona on Thursday.

It was her third brush with terrorism since she began travelling around Europe three months ago but she told 3AW’s Neil Mitchell that she won’t let it stop her from seeing the world.

In June, she was put in a lockdown on the London Underground while out with friends when terrorists plowed into people on London Bridge before going on a knife rampage in nearby Borough Market.

Days later, she was in Notre Dame in Paris when a police officer was stabbed outside the famous cathedral.

‘I don’t feel like I want to go home,’ she told Neil Mitchell on Friday morning.

‘I feel like I want to stay here and not let them – whoever they may be – win.

‘I’m going to see what I came here to see.’

Ms Monaco and her friends Alana Reader and Julia Rocca, also from Melbourne, were in the store on Placa de Catalyuna when they saw people outside running for their lives.

The doors were locked and she spoke of how she watched terrified pedestrians banging on the windows trying to get inside from the street.

‘In a split second it all kind of changed and everyone just started running and panicking and running for their lives and crying and screaming and we were forced back into the store, told to get away from the windows and to get low on the ground,’ she told Nine.

Ms Monaco said those inside huddled at the back of an Urban Outfitters store and were told to lie face-down on the floor and away from the windows.

When they were finally allowed to leave, they had to walk back to their hostel and avoid the numerous streets that had been closed by police.

‘You just have to keep going. I’m sure though tomorrow morning my mum will say ‘come home’, but I don’t think I’ve been scared out of travelling,’ she added.

Melbourne man Michael Christou was about 300m from the initial scene of the Las Ramblas carnage and was also nearby when eight people including two Australians were killed in the London Bridge van attack in June.

‘I think it’s following me but you kind of come over here (to Europe) and you expect it to happen but you don’t let it stop you from doing what you want to do.’

Australian Adam James and his wife, who was pushed over and suffered minor injuries as they ran from the scene, were in Istanbul last year when a police bus was blown up in a terror attack.

‘It’s happened again. It’s a very real thing,’ he said.

Authorities said at least 13 people were killed in Thursday’s attack – which has been claimed by Islamic State – and 100 more injured, 15 of them seriously.

Three Australians were injured, including an NSW woman who is in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said Australia stood in absolute resolute solidarity with Spain in the global battle against Islamist terrorism.

‘This is a global battle against terrorism,’ Mr Turnbull told reporters in Canberra on Friday.

Early Friday, Catalan police posted a tweet saying they shot and killed four suspects and wounded a fifth in a resort town south of Barcelona.

They said officers ‘shot down the perpetrators’ to ‘respond to a terrorist attack.’

It wasn’t immediately clear from the tweet if the five shot were suspects in the Las Ramblas attack or were allegedly targeting another location.

Police patrol streets in Las Ramblas after Barcelona terrorist

Las Ramblas, a street of stalls and shops that cuts through the center of Barcelona, is one of the city’s top tourist destinations. People walk down a wide, pedestrian path in the center of the street while cars can travel on either side.

Police immediately cordoned off the city’s broad avenue and ordered stores and nearby Metro and train stations to close.

Other witnesses also described horrific scenes and fearful crowds in the aftermath of the van attack, which has been claimed by the Islamic State.

MFB Commander Graeme O’Sullivan was one of the first responders at Melbourne’s Bourke Street tragedy in January.

He and his wife saw the latest carnage unfold from the rooftop of their Barcelona hotel.

‘We were up on the sixth floor roof terrace, just the pool area, enjoying a few drinks,’ he told Nine.

‘We could clearly hear thuds as the vehicle was running into people, and then a short time after that, obviously, several very loud sickening screams from the people involved down at street level.’

Mr O’Sullivan said the similarity to the Bourke Street Mall event was chilling.

‘Bourke Street wasn’t terrorism and this appears to be, but the result is still the same,’ he told Melbourne radio 3AW.

Australian cyber safety expert Susan McLean was about 100m away as the van zigzagged down the busy avenue, mowing down pedestrians and leaving bodies strewn across the ground.

‘All of a sudden there was this tidal wave of people running from both Placa de Catalunya and Las Ramblas towards us screaming, crying and with absolute terror etched on their faces,’ she told Nine Network on Friday.

‘Several of them were calling ‘gun, gun’, so first of all we thought someone had been shot.

‘Then they just kept sort of – it was all in Spanish, it was very difficult to understand – but they were sort of pushing us into shops.’

Ms McLean, who was separated from her husband in the panic, also said the scene reminded her of the Bourke Street Mall rampage.

‘My first reaction was the Bourke Street massacre, because that is what it reminded me of – the vision of people fleeing in just such terror,’ she said.

Keith Fleming, and American living in Barcelona, said he was watching television in his building on a side street just off Las Ramblas when he heard a noise and went out to the balcony to investigate.

He says he saw ‘women and children just running and they looked terrified.’

Mr Fleming heard a bang, possibly from someone rolling down a store shutter, as more people raced by.

He said armed police arrived and pushed everyone a full block down the street.

State-owned broadcaster RTVE reported that investigators think two vans were used – one for the attack and a second as a getaway vehicle.

The attack in the northeastern Spanish city was the country’s deadliest since 2004, when al-Qaeda-inspired bombers killed 192 people in coordinated attacks on Madrid’s commuter trains.

Spain has been on a security alert one step below the maximum since June 2015 following attacks elsewhere in Europe and Africa.

Cars, trucks and vans have been the weapon of choice in multiple extremist attacks in Europe in the last year.

The most deadly was the driver of a tractor-trailer who targeted Bastille Day revelers in the southern French city of Nice in July 2016, killing 86 people.

In December 2016, 12 people died after a driver used a hijacked trick to drive into a Christmas market in Berlin.

There have been multiple attacks this year in London, where a man in a rented SUV plowed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four people before he ran onto the grounds of Parliament and stabbed an unarmed police officer to death in March.

Four other men drove onto the sidewalk of London Bridge, unleashing a rampage with knives that killed eight people in June.

Another man also drove into pedestrians leaving a north London mosque later in June.

SIX FRENCH SOLDIERS INJURED IN ‘DELIBERATE ACT’ OUTSIDE PARIS

 

PARIS – A car rammed into a group of soldiers in a Parisian suburb on Wednesday, injuring six in what its mayor called a deliberate act.

Levallois-Perret Mayor Patrick Balkany said a BMW parked in an alley drove into the soldiers as they left their barracks to go on patrol duty.

 

Police said two of the six soldiers were seriously injured. The injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Speaking to broadcaster BFM TV, Balkany said that what he called a “disgusting” act of aggression was “without any doubt” a deliberate, premeditated act.

France’s police department said in a message on Twitter that a search for the vehicle was under way.

France remains on maximum alert after a string of attacks in which Islamist militants or Islamist-inspired attackers have killed more than 230 people over the past two years.

Levallois-Perret is situated on the western edge of Paris.

Car rams soldiers near Paris in suspected attack

PARIS — French police say a vehicle slammed into soldiers guarding a Paris suburb, injuring six of them, before getting away.

Authorities are now searching for the vehicle and driver after the Wednesday incident, according to a Paris police spokesman.

The vehicle appeared to clearly target the soldiers but the motive is unclear, the spokesman said. The official was not authorized to be publicly named according to police policy.

Four people were injured lightly, two more seriously, the spokesman said.

The incident in Levallois, northwest of Paris, is the latest of several attacks targeting security forces in France guarding sites after a string of deadly attacks.
