France’s terrorism is largely home grown – yet both Macron and Le Pen look away | Iman Amrani | Opinion | The Guardian
The truth is that neither of the remaining candidates has a coherent plan for dealing with the very real issue of fundamentalism in France. That is both shocking and inexcusable. We have seen more than enough attacks in Europe to be able to identify patterns, commonalities, and recurring issues. So why haven’t any of the candidates attempted to grapple with them?

failure of top-down secularization
Turkey is, after 100 years, a complete failure of top-down secularization. So are Iraq and Syria. You keep pushing religion under the rug, via bureaucrats; it comes back with a vengeance.
Iran has, somewhat, the opposite situation.

[...] [ & im gampf gg ISIS "gegen unsere Freiheit" est Sept 2001 ] [...] Der Täter hat keine Gesinnungsgenossen. Seine Radikalisierung beruht auf psychischer und sozialer Abschottung. Er litt unter einer fixen Idee, der Islamisierung Europas, die er weniger in seiner Lebenswelt als in Texten erlebte. Und er lebt noch! Das ist alles eigenartig und neu. Das im vergangenen Jahrzehnt durch massenmediale und politische Rhetorik entstandene Bild des Terrorismus ist in seine Puzzleteile zerfallen. Selbst die wichtige Frage, ob Anders Breivik ideologisch und fundamentalistisch gehandelt hat, wurde viel zu schnell beantwortet.

Gesellschaft ǀ Orlando, Symbol des Scheiterns — der Freitag
Das Scheitern der „Gesellschaft“. Wir sollten uns selbst fragen, wie es möglich ist, dass es in modernen, offenen Gesellschaften, für manche Menschen nötig ist, Halt in extremistischen, menschenverachtenden Ideologien zu suchen. Ich beziehe das nicht nur auf „Islamisten“ oder religiöse Fanatiker. Wir müssen uns doch auch fragen, wie es sein kann, dass selbst Menschen, die in unserem Land geboren wurden, dazu kommen, diese Gesellschaft rigoros abzulehnen. Wie kommen diese Menschen dazu, dieses Land, unsere Verfassung, die ihnen garantiert, ihre Meinung sagen zu können und frei zu leben, zu bekämpfen? //&!

IS in Europe: The race to the death
The BBC's Panorama programme has seen the transcripts of some important interrogations carried out by France's equivalent of MI5, the DGSI. They reveal valuable details about the tactics used by Abaaoud to train and equip IS fighters in Europe. [...] Nicolas Moreau was one them. He was arrested in 2015 having left Nantes to fight jihad in Syria in 2014.
He, like many IS recruits, was a former petty criminal who had converted to Islam in prison and become disillusioned with life in France.
He told his interrogators he couldn't stand the "injustice" and "couldn't see any future in this country".
He went on to provide valuable information about IS's external operations department known as Amni, meaning "security", that sends hand-picked trained fighters back to Europe to inflict death and destruction on their homelands.
"Each gets 50,000 euros (£40,000) to mount an attack," Moreau said.

France to overhaul secularism teaching to help stop radicalisation | World news | The Guardian
The French principle of secularism has been twisted by politicians and so often wrongly used to attack Islam that schoolchildren have been left baffled, the French education minister has warned. Najat Vallaud-Belkacem told the Guardian that after last year’s devastating jihadi attacks in Paris, France was overhauling the teaching of secularism and civic values as part of the country’s drive against terrorism and radicalisation. “We have to reappropriate the concept of laïcité [secularism] so we can explain to our young pupils that whatever their faith, they belong to this idea and they’re not excluded. Secularism is not something against them; it protects them,” she said.

Syria conflict: Russia air strikes 'killed 200 civilians' - BBC News
At least 200 civilians have been killed in Russian air strikes in Syria, an Amnesty International report says, quoting witnesses and activists. It says it "researched remotely" more than 25 Russian attacks in five areas between 30 September and 29 November. The findings indicate "serious failures [by Russia] to respect international humanitarian law", Amnesty says. Moscow has repeatedly denied causing civilian deaths, describing such claims as part of "information warfare". Russia began air strikes targeting Islamic State militants (IS) and other groups on 30 September, saying it was acting at the request of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Moscow has also been accused of bombing rebel groups opposed to Mr Assad but backed by the West.

Gay British man avoids extradition to Dubai | Law | The Guardian
Court finds the United Arab Emirates failed to give sufficient assurances that Michael Halliday’s human rights would be respected. A gay man has avoided extradition to Dubai – where homosexuality is outlawed – after a London court ruled there was a risk he would be tortured and was unlikely to receive a fair trial on theft charges. In a strongly worded ruling, a judge at Westminster magistrates court said the United Arab Emirates had not given the court sufficient assurances that Michael Halliday’s human rights would be respected. In district judge Jeremy Coleman’s ruling, which sets a significant precedent, he said: “The trial, treatment and conditions of those accused or convicted of criminal offences in the UAE is still the subject of complaint and is often alleged to fall well below the required standards … Taking into account Mr Halliday’s own circumstances, I cannot be satisfied that he would not be at significant risk.

Apple raises concerns over UK's draft surveillance bill - BBC News
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation. It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants. The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. [...] But Apple appears to be concerned that the bill's language could still be interpreted more expansively and force the creation of a so-called "backdoor" to provide the authorities with access. Apple argues that the existence of such a backdoor would risk creating a weakness that others then might exploit, making users' data less secure. [...] Overseas warrants A second area of concern relates to the issue of "extra-territoriality". Existing British legislation - and the bill - maintain that companies need to comply with warrants for information wherever they are based and wherever the data resides.

We should do God, says report into religion in public life - BBC News
"We don't do God," as Tony Blair's spin doctor Alastair Campbell famously told an interviewer wishing to inquire further about the then prime minister's Christian faith. But according to a report published today, we urgently need to do God - or rather, as a nation, we need to understand religion and belief much better as a driving force within societies across the world, in order to deal with its impact at home. Here, the decrease in mainstream Christianity and the growth of minority religions are raising questions about national identity (what does it mean to be British today?) and how we can live together and accommodate difference peacefully and cohesively, balancing each other's freedoms and rights.

Yemen conflict: Governor of Aden killed in Islamic State attack - BBC News
Islamic State militants say they are responsible for a blast that killed the governor of Yemen's port city of Aden. Jaafar Mohammed Saad and several aides died when their convoy was hit. IS says it detonated a car laden with explosives as he drove by. The group has established a presence in Yemen since its civil war broke out. It is opposed to the government and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels who have seized much of the country, including the capital Sanaa. Earlier this year, Aden was recaptured by government troops backed by a Saudi-led coalition.

Syria crisis: Russia begins air strikes against Assad foes - BBC News
Russia has begun carrying out air strikes in Syria against opponents of President Bashar al-Assad, Moscow has confirmed. The strikes reportedly came in the rebel-controlled area of Hama province. Washington was informed in advance that they were about to take place. Syria's civil war has raged for four years, with armed groups - some of them Islamist, including the Islamic State (IS) group - fighting to overthrow the government. The US and its allies have insisted that President Assad should leave office, while Russia has backed its ally remaining in power. The latest developments came amid reports that President Assad had formally requested Russian military support. //&!

Saudi Arabia will need deep pockets if it is to win its oil war with US | Larry Elliott | World news | The Guardian
Riyadh’s plan to raise $27bn from bond sales is a sign that its economic battle with United States is taking its toll [...] Saudi Arabia is an expensive country to run for the House of Saud. Fearful of Iran, it has imported the latest military kit to show that it is the Middle East’s regional superpower. Higher defence spending has also been needed to fund action in Yemen and to counter the threat from Islamic State. In addition, Saudi Arabia has an unemployment problem that it fears may become a social unrest problem. Two-thirds of the population is under 30 and the unemployment rate for the 16-29 age group is 29%. [...] [IMF] estimates that Saudi Arabia is on course to run a budget deficit of 20% of national income this year. [...] oil accounts for almost 90% of Saudi Arabia’s revenues, [...] Saudis are now embroiled in a long – and expensive – war of attrition. And one they may not win. // &! /bbc.in/1gmHu0V

"existential threat", "There are some people who don't buy the terrorism but buy the extremist narrative." He called for a “full-spectrum” response to the Tunisia attack; crushing the "appalling death cult" of IS in Iraq & Syria but also fighting extremists’ “poisonous narrative” elsewhere in the world. // 'We beat it with full spectrum response' means also expanding the surveillance state, drone warfare & corporate state.
