Disaffected Muslim populations at home, unpoliced European borders and battle-hardened fighters now flowing in from Syria and Iraq were creating a perfect storm of terror that is now in danger of defeating the French security services.
France is estimated to have 2,000 citizens involved in Syrian and Iraq jihadi networks and a further 3,800 individuals known to domestic intelligence services as “radicalised”, all watched over by just 3,200 intelligence officers.
“The services are overwhelmed,” said Jean-Charles Brisard, head of the Paris-based Centre for the Analysis of Terrorism, “when you consider it takes 25 officers to provide round-the-clock surveillance on one individual, you can see the difficulty.”
Europe’s open border policy allowing weapons and terrorists to flow freely into France - with at least two of the Friday night attackers coming in from Belgium - means that there are now real fears that it is almost impossible for the intelligence services to keep track of the jihadi threat.
The refusal of Brussels to tighten the Schengen border rules, or begin a Passenger Name Record (PNR) system – an idea first mooted after the 2004 train bombings in Madrid - has left countries like France even more open to attack, Mr Brisard added.
Dimitris Avramopoulos, EU official in charge of migration, says political backlash over migration 'means nothing' as he is not elected.“The Commission does not take the blame because it does not care about the political cost,” he said. “The Commission is here for five years to do its job and we did it with vision, responsibility and commitment. Because what is driving us is not to be re-elected. That is why for us the political cost means nothing.”
European leaders, he said, should be follow suit. “This is the message I would send all around Europe: stop thinking about the so-called political cost,” he told Politico, a Brussels-based news website
Croatia says it will allow migrants to travel on to northern Europe, opening up a new route a day after Hungary sealed its border with Serbia.
Подробнее: Хорватия уже не в силах принимать беженцев. Возможности страны иссякли, — об этом в эфире национального телевидения заявил глава правительства Зоран Миланович. По его словам, превращение Хорватии в сборный центр для мигрантов в Европе это не решение проблемы. Миланович также обвинил власти Греции и Турции в том, что они не способны закрыть границы. В настоящий момент в Хорватии находится 13 тысяч беженцев.
В воскресенье он уже предупреждал, что Германия больше не хочет, чтобы беженцы могли выбирать себе европейскую страну, где они предпочитают поселиться.
Хорошо знакомый modus operandi:
Every stakeholder was benefiting from the system, except one: the patient. In addition to the official costs of care and drugs, there was another price people had to pay: a fee known as “the envelope.” Surgeons receiving meager government paychecks were and still are routinely paid a large supplement by the patient’s family. The government turns a blind eye to this illegal practice, preferring to avoid addressing the disparity between low doctor pay and high systemic spending.
