Text of the Europa Report:
Ι am Autolycus and this is the Europa Report for the past week, July 8th to July 15th bringing you the latest news on the Continent regarding the latest political developments and the ongoing ‘’refugee’’ crisis.
This past week was marked by another tragic terrorist event in France on July 14th ,Bastille Day.
A terrorist gunman has killed 84 people and seriously injured 50 more after he used a 25-tonne lorry to go on a mile-long killing spree by mounting pavements at high speed and ploughing through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice.
The killer, a 31-year-old French Tunisian who was known to police, then got out and sprayed fleeing revellers with bullets before being shot dead by police.
One eyewitness described seeing ‘bodies flying like bowling pins’ and others ‘jammed’ under the lorry’s wheels as the horror unfolded at around 10.30pm local time last night.
Heartbroken men and women refused to leave the bodies of their loved ones and the dead remain strewn across the famous Promenade de Anglais today.
Some of the victims were children, with young girls and boys lying dead covered in a blankets with their dolls and buggies still next to them. Footage taken at the time of the attack shows bodies piled up in the roads and people running from their lives as they tried to avoid the zig-zagging lorry while paramedics treated the injured and dying in the street.
The truck driver was said to have shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ – God is great in Arabic – before being killed in a clear suicide mission. Pro-ISIS groups have been celebrating the attack, orchestrated to coincide with France’s most important national holiday.
A huge cache of guns, grenades and ‘larger weapons’ and the terrorist’s identity papers were later found inside the lorry, which mounted the pavement at approximately 40mph and steered directly towards hundreds of people watching a fireworks display.
ISIS supporters have been celebrating the attack, orchestrated to coincide with France’s most important national holiday. The gunman is believed to be from Nice and was known to police for crimes of theft and violence, but not intelligence services, a police source said. A suspected accomplice is on the run.
French President Francois Hollande today pledged to ‘hit’ ISIS in Syria and Iraq ‘even harder’ after the devastating attack, saying: ‘France is in tears, it is hurting but it is strong and she will be stronger – always stronger than the fanatics who wish to hurt us.’
These attacks were of no surprise to Europeans as there are at least 500 ISIS fighters who have served in Syria and Iraq in France, and it is likely they will start using car bomb attacks, the head of France’s intelligence services has said.
Speaking before a French Parliamentary commission looking into anti-terrorism measures, Patrick Calvar also warned that further attacks were “inevitable.”
Calvar, who is head of the Direction générale de la sécurité intérieure (General Directorate for Internal Security, or DGSI), said that the “settled” nature of the nonwhites in France was going to aid their future terrorist activities.
After saying that ISIS would switch its modus operandi in France from Bataclan theater type attacks to the use of “car bombs and explosive devices,” he said they “need the logistics [to prepare the attacks], that is to say, [they need to] settle on our territory, and acquire all components.”
It is notable that France follows the footsteps of Germany as there are at least 1,100 ISIS terrorists in Germany, drawing from a pool of around 45,120 hardcore Islamists, according to a new report by the German Federal Police (BKA).
The existence of the secret BKA report was revealed in an article in the Bild newspaper, which also provided a partial list of the convictions of “returning ISIS fighters”—those nonwhites who, having obtained German citizenship, had gone off to fight for ISIS and have since come back to Germany.
According to that report, at least 130 of these “German” Jihadis have been killed in the fighting in Syria. The report also said that there were at least another 780 nonwhites with German citizenship fighting for ISIS in Syria right now.
In other news from Germany, More than 60 people have been arrested in raids across Germany carried out by that country’s secret thought police.
The raids—carried out early Wednesday morning—arrested members of a private Facebook group which opposed the Angela Merkel-created “refugee” invasion.
A statement issued by the Federal Office of Criminal Investigations (BKA) said that the aim of the mass raids was to “decisively confront the growth in verbal radicalism which is appearing on the Internet.”
Since December 2015, the BKA has been coordinating a special police unit which combines state and federal police in a project called “Tackling Hate Posting.”
The unit was set up after Bavarian police observed regular “hate posts” being published on a secret Facebook page between July and November 2015.
Not to mention that, two of the nonwhite invaders who took part in the mass sex attacks in Cologne on last New Year’s Eve have walked out of court with no more than a slap on the wrist.
Algerian Hassan T. and Iraqi Hussein A. were sentenced last week by the Cologne District Court to one year’s “probation” after being found guilty of “sexual assault” under “juvenile criminal law.”
According to the Express newspaper, Hassan T. (26) was “beaming” when he left the courthouse, and taunted his victims by repeatedly shouting out “I’ve done nothing!”
According to the indictment, the two invaders—both claiming to be “asylum seekers”—had initially taken photographs of the victims, and then later, when some had been surrounded by the gangs of nonwhites, had taken part in the assaults.
Moving on across the English Channel, where Britain’s Interior Minister Theresa May emerged as the clear frontrunner as lawmakers started picking a new prime minister, while shockwaves from the Brexit vote hit the property market and sent the pound plunging.
May, who wanted Britain to stay in the EU but now says she will lead it out, scooped up 165 votes from ruling Conservative Party lawmakers.
Unfancied pro-Brexit junior energy minister Andrea Leadsom was her nearest rival with 66 votes, followed by eurosceptic justice secretary Michael Gove on 48.
“There is a big job before us: to unite our party and the country, to negotiate the best possible deal as we leave the EU, and to make Britain work for everyone,” May said following the vote.
Taking office three weeks after the vote to leave the bloc, May, who campaigned to stay in the EU, installed “Leave” leader Boris Johnson as foreign minister, despite his history of diplomatic gaffes.
“His appointment is a gamble,” said Peter Snowdon, a long-time observer of the ruling Conservative party who co-authored a book on May’s predecessor, David Cameron.
“She sees him as the frontman of the ‘Leave’ campaign and also she sees his popularity –- even if he is a divisive figure,” he told AFP.
With EU leaders pressing for a clear timetable on exiting the bloc, May has created a new ministerial job dedicated to Brexit, which she handed to eurosceptic lawmaker David Davis.
Another hardline critic of the EU, Liam Fox, becomes minister for international trade, reflecting the need to forge new alliances if Britain leaves the EU single market.
The two men are “unlikely to tolerate any backsliding on the promise that ‘Brexit means Brexit’,” said Mark Wallace, executive editor of the Tory website Conservative Home.
Also in Sweden, stickers calling for democracy to be replaced with Islam and for women who do not wear a veil to be raped have appeared in public places in Sweden. They have been reported to the police.
Pictures of the stickers, which have been stuck to objects on streets in Nybro, Småland, have been circulating on social media.
One of the stickers reads, in English: “Women who don’t wear a headscarf are asking to be raped.” Another reads: “No democracy. We just want Islam,” Fria Tider has reported.
The stickers have been reported to the police who are currently investigating who placed them there, but admitted that at the moment they do not know who is behind them.
Lastly, “Poland will be sending another contingent to support Hungary’s border protection system”, Polish Minister of Interior Mariusz Błaszczak announced following a meeting of Visegrád Group (V4) Interior Ministers in Warsaw.
In addition to the hosting Polish Minister, the meeting was also attended by Hungarian Interior Minister Sándor Pintér, Slovakian Minister of Interior Robert Kalinák and Czech Deputy Interior Minister Jiri Novácek.
At the press conference following the meeting, Mr. Pintér said: Hungary turned to its Visegrád partners for assistance “in the interests of the implementation and international enforcement” of its new border protection system, which came into force in the beginning of July. Hungary will not only be receiving support from the V4; it is hoped that Thursday’s visits by the Austrian Minister of Defence and Minister of Interior will also have a similar result, he pointed out. Thanking his Visegrád colleagues for the assistance they have provided to Hungary so far to protect its Schengen borders, Mr. Pintér said “This has helped us allow significantly fewer illegal immigrants to reach the Schengen Area”.
It is also worth mentioning that, Austria and Hungary will face momentous electoral questions in October 2016: the former will hold a new presidential election campaign on October 2, while Hungary will hold a referendum on the European Union’s forced invader “redistribution program” on the same day.
In Vienna, the Austrian government has announced that the presidential election rerun—ordered by that country’s Constitutional Court—will take place on October 2.
The country’s constitutional court decided last week that the run-off presidential election originally held in May will have to be held again after finding widespread procedural irregularities.
The court, which questioned more than 60 witnesses in a four-day hearing, upheld the challenge brought by the Freedom Party (FPÖ) against its candidate Norbert Hofer’s narrow defeat in May’s election.
In Hungary, that country’s president János Áder has called for the government-initiated referendum on the “mandatory resettlement of non-Hungarian citizens” to take place on the same day.
The referendum is the result of the European Union’s unilateral decision to force each EU member state to accept thousands of bogus asylum seekers invited into Germany by Angela Merkel under a plan to “spread the load” of the invasion.
Called a “mandatory migrant quota system,” the plan is to “allocate” the nonwhite invaders to each EU state according to its Gross Domestic Product and population size, so as to avoid Germany having to carry the entire burden.
That was all for this week!
