Concerns about a potential, and so far unsubstantiated, nuclear “incident”, reportedly in the vicinity of the Arctic circle, spread in the past week after trace amounts of radioactive Iodine-131 of unknown origin were detected in January over large areas in Europe according to a report by the Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, the French national public expert in nuclear and radiological risks. Since the isotope has a half-life of only eight days, the detection is an indication of a rather recent release. As the Barents Observer adds, “where the radioactivity is coming from is still a mystery.”
The air filter station at Svanhovd – located a few hundred meters from Norway’s border to Russia’s Kola Peninsula in the north – was the first to measure small amounts of the radioactive Ionide-131 in the second week of January. Shortly thereafter, the same Iodine-131 isotope was measured in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. Within the next two weeks, traces of radioactivity, although in tiny amounts, were measured in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, France and Spain. Continue reading »

Marine Le Pen’s threat to redenominate €1.7 billion in French debt infor francs has sparked panic among the establishment, with rating agencies, economist and central bankers all warning that this would amount to the largest sovereign default on record, threatening chaos to the world financial system on top of the collapse of the single currency.
A new study on European attitudes toward Muslim migration has revealed that 55 per cent of Europeans in ten different countries want a halt to migration from majority Muslim nations.
The study was carried out by Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, and surveyed European attitudes to Muslim migration in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Poland, Italy, Hungary, France, Austria, and Spain. The 10,000 people surveyed were asked whether they agreed with the statement, “All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped”.
Apart from Spain (41 per cent) and the UK (47 per cent), a majority in every country wanted a ban on Muslim immigrants. Across all countries, an average of 20 per cent disagreed with the statement, and in no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32 per cent. Continue reading »
The leader of the anti-immigration French National Front party Marine Le Pen kicked off her presidential campaign on Saturday by echoing many of the same vows that brought Trump to power in the US, hoping promises to shield voters from globalization, promote protectionism, leave the Eurozone, slap taxes on imports and on the job contracts of foreigners, lower the retirement age, increasing welfare benefits and boost defense spending push her above her competitors at a time of sweeping political turmoil in France.

The Dijon prosecutor has launched an investigation after a number of pig heads were hung on the gates of a building recently purchased by an Islamic association prior to its conversion to a place of worship.
Six sawn-halves of pigs heads were discovered on the gates of the building in Genlis, a small town near Dijon, France on Friday morning. Further to the pig heads, further “cold cuts” of pork were discovered thrown into the yard.
France’s Le Figaroreports the comments of the local Mayor, who said the Association of Socioculture and Muslim Culture of Genlis (ASCMG) had “acquired this building with the aim of making it a place of worship in the future. This announcement, made in the regional press last week, had unleashed [bad feelings]”. Continue reading »
Police in Paris are allegedly threatening the lives of homeless Muslim illegals by stealing their blankets as temperatures drop to freezing. It is all part of a campaign of harassment aimed at getting unwanted Muslim invaders posing as refugees off the streets of the French capital. Police said they were under orders to keep the city free of squatters’ camps.
UK Daily Mail Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontières) said in a tweet: ‘The police should stop confiscating the covers of migrants sleeping on the streets of Paris. ‘These unacceptable practices put the life of migrants in danger. (Maybe that’s the idea?)
It comes as thousands of new Muslim invaders flood into the city from Afghanistan and Syria. Many are trying to get to Britain, where they want to claim asylum (because the welfare benefits in the UK are more generous).
The vast ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais – where up to 10,000 lived at one point – was torn to the ground in October, as the port town was turned into an immigrant free zone. Many headed towards Paris, where camps regularly appear in public parks and squares, many of them close to the Eurostar train hub.
Below is what a Muslim street camp looks like in Paris:
The crisis means that CRS riot police are continually ordered to destroy camps, and they use baton charges and tear gas to clear areas. ‘A lot of the raids take place just before sunrise, when temperatures are at their lowest,’ said a local charity worker. ‘The makeshift huts and tents being used are torn down, and the squatters are left to fend for themselves.

“It is best to wait outside. There are men in here… In this café, there is no diversity.” — Male customer in a café in Sevran, on France 2 television.
“In this café, there is no mixing. We are in Sevran, not Paris. Here there is a different mentality. It is like back home.” — Another male customer in a café in Sevran, on France 2 television.
Women seem “to have been erased”, from the cafés and the streets. “So now to avoid threats, and being put under pressure, they censor themselves and keep quiet.” — Caroline Sinz, journalist, France 2 television.
This Islamization has been fueled and strengthened by Qatar’s heavy investments — particularly in mosques — in France, which currently stand at around $22 billion.
“There is a misplaced form of morality, often exercised by minority groups over a majority, which leads to the fact that the public space, supposedly belonging to both men and women, is restricted from women.” — Pascale Boistard, former French Minister for Women’s Rights
French ministers feign surprise and outrage that women in these suburbs have finally succumbed to the incessant terror against them and are disappearing from the streets.
Women have literally disappeared from cafés and bars in certain predominantly Muslim suburbs in France, according to recently aired undercover footage from the France 2 television channel. The footage featured two women activists, Nadia Remadna and Aziza Sayah, from the women’s rights campaign group, La Brigade des Mères (Brigade of Mothers), entering a café in the Paris suburb of Sevran, where they were met with surprise and hostility from the all-male customers. One told them: “It is best to wait outside. There are men in here… In this café, there is no diversity.”
Another customer told them: “In this café, there is no mixing. We are in Sevran, not Paris. Here there is a different mentality. It is like back home.” Continue reading »
French presidential candidate and National Front leader, Marine Le Pen, said she wants to take France out of the euro, reiterating comments made the day before, and – taking a page out of the Yanis Varoufakis Grexit negotiating strategy playbook – added she wants to redenominate French government debt in a new national currency.
“More and more European citizens realize their economies have been suffocated by the euro,” she told reporters on the sidelines of a press conference in Paris quoted by Bloomberg. Continue reading »
