France is “in a state of war”: French Parliament backs controversial anti-terrorism law

France is “in a state of war”: French Parliament backs controversial anti-terrorism law, by RT.

The French parliament has approved a new anti-terrorist bill, criticized by human rights activists as restrictive of civil liberties. Ahead of the vote, France’s interior minister Gerard Collomb said that “nobody is safe” in the country as “it is still in a state of war.” …

The new bill … seeks to increase law enforcement powers in the fight against terrorism …

Inside the zones, the movement of people and vehicles can be restricted and searches can be conducted. Police will also be given wider powers to raid private property with judicial approval. …

The new bill is regarded by many as a conversion into common law of emergency measures, which have been in place in France since late 2015. The state of emergency, introduced following the Paris attacks in November that year, is set to be lifted on November 9.

“The level of threat in France is extremely high,” Collomb said earlier in the day, adding that the country remains “in a state of war.” …

France has seen some of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Europe in the past years. Over 200 people have been killed since early 2015 by assailants having pledged allegiance to or been inspired by the Islamic State terrorist group. In a series of coordinated attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015 alone, 130 people were killed by IS terrorists. On Bastille Day in 2016, a truck was driven into crowds of people celebrating in Nice, killing 86 and injuring over 450.

War against whom? Left unstated. If not for Muslim mass migration, France would not be in a state of war and Europe would be peaceful and safe. Not that the PC politicians and media are allowed to say that, but everybody knows it.
