More than 51 east African migrants desperate to reach the “El Dorado” of the UK were injured in ethnic clashes early today in Calais over access to lorry parks, in the second night of rioting near the ferry terminal.
Charity workers say the authorities are “overwhelmed” by a recent increase in the numbers of migrants in Calais which now totals 1,300. The clashes involved Sudanese fighting Eritrean and Ethiopian migrants, with sticks, iron bars and stones. The violence prompted local authorities to send in riot police on Monday, but they failed to quell the battles which drew in 300 people overnight.
Earlier on Monday evening, violence erupted between the ethnic groups as they gathered at a food distribution centre. Three people were hurt. Ethnic riots in Calais as Albanian gangs charge African migrants for access to port area – and the chance to reach Britain.
“Netanyahu deserves Nobel Peace Prize for Gaza”
Hirsi Ali’s forslag flugter ikke helt med alle Oslo’s valg, se Peace Prize Laureates. I London vil The Times ikke modtage nobelpristager Elie Wiesels annonce, der fordømmer Hamas brug af menneskelige skjolde. I USA er Hirsi Ali en af The 15 Hottest Female Intellectuals.
During an interview published on Friday by Israel HaYom, the Sheldon Adelson-backed Israeli daily, public intellectual and author Ayan Hirsi Ali claimed that Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for waging the ongoing military campaign by the IDF against Hamas militants in Gaza.
Asked whom she admired, Ali — who once called Islam a “nihilistic cult of death” — included Netanyahu on a list featuring her husband, Harvard professor Niall Ferguson, as well as former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Princeton professor Bernard Lewis. Ali said she admired Netanyahu “[b]ecause he is under so much pressure, from so many sources, and yet he does what is best for the people of Israel, he does his duty.”
“I really think he should get the Nobel Peace Prize,” Ali added. “In a fair world he would get it.” Ayan Hirsi Ali: Bibi Netanyahu deserves Nobel Peace Prize for Gaza campaign. (Releateret: Angry Gazans attack Hamas spokesman. “Journalists” afraid to report it.)
