David Cameron’s ‘swarm’ comment sparks row 31.7.2015 Asian Age: International
Prime Minister David Cameron faced criticism on Thursday for saying a “swarm of migrants” was trying to come to Britain as authorities in France struggle to stop them crossing the Channel. “This is very testing, I accept that, because you have got a swarm of people coming across the Mediterranean, seeking a better life, wanting to come to Britain because Britain has got jobs, it’s got a growing economy, it’s an incredible place to live,” Mr Cameron told ITV television during a visit to Vietnam. Around 3,000 people from countries including Syria and Eritrea are camping out in the northern French port of Calais and trying to cross into Britain by clambering on lorries and trains. The controversy has flared up to dominate British media this week as holidaymakers and truck drivers are blocked on the British side due to delays caused by the migrants’ actions. Acting leader of the main opposition Labour party Harriet Harman said Mr Cameron should “remember he is talking about people, not insects”. The Refugee ...

Germans greet influx of refugees with free food and fire bombings 30.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

A worrying rise in violent attacks has marred government attempts to integrate asylum-seekers from Syria, Eritrea and the Balkans into villages, towns and cities

Madina Tsyuchuev had dozed off in the early hours of the evening, only to be woken a short while later by the smell of smoke, thick acrid clouds of which were seeping under the front door of her flat.

“My two girls were playing. The smoke was coming through the door,” the 24-year-old said. She rang her husband, Ibragin, who had been visiting a friend with their son. “I rushed home to find burning newspaper in the doorway, and was able to stamp it out with my feet,” the 27-year-old recalls.

An 'Isis-free zone' is nothing but a road to US mission creep | Emma Ashford 30.7.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
The US’ involvement in Syria displays no strategy, no boundaries and no clear goals. The only viable long-term solution to Syria’s problems is diplomacy The US war against Isis is being fought on autopilot, with little thought given to whether our actions will hurt or help American interests in the long-run. This weeks’ agreement between the United States and Turkey to create an ill-defined “ Isis-free zone ” in the north of Syria is just the latest example of this problem. Not only will it fail to reconcile the vastly different goals sought by America and its allies, it also risks mission creep, increasing US involvement in the Syrian conflict with little chance of success. According to US officials , the joint creation of a 68-mile Isis-free zone within Syria is supposed to provide a space where coalition airstrikes eliminate Isis forces and cede control to moderate Syrian rebels focused on combating Isis. It’s still unclear precisely what form this will take, and the confusion rises to the highest ...

Analysis: It is time to end the lie that a few hundred migrants trying to enter the UK via the Channel tunnel amount to a mass invasion

For once the Daily Mail has got it right with its demand to “End this Migrant Madness” but not in the way they mean it.

It is time to end this tabloid media pretence that nightly, repeated and mostly unsuccessful, attempts by a few hundred migrants to illegally enter Britain by way of the Channel tunnel amount to an invasion threat not seen since Hitler assembled his invasion barges in the autumn of 1940.
