Is France turning racist?

“This will most likely be achieved by the end of the year,” Fabius said. Diplomats have told AFP that the former colonial power could boost its contingent to up to 1,200 troops, in support of a small pan-African peacekeeping force deployed in the country. French FM Laurent Fabius (L), European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid Western powers have reluctantly recognised Djotodia, the leader of the now disbanded Seleka rebel group that toppled Francois Bozize in March, as the country’s first Muslim president. In exchange, Djotodia has formed an inclusive government and pledged not to run in elections due to mark the end of an 18-month interim period in early 2015. “There has been a demand that the authorities organise free polls at the beginning of 2015 and not contest them,” he said. France has voiced concern that the Central African Republic (CAR), which sits on vast mineral wealth but remains one of the world’s poorest countries, risked becoming another Somali-style “failed state.” “We — France, the European Union and the United Nations — have decided to take up the challenge. We will not let you down, we will tackle this situation seriously,” Fabius said. A French soldier of the BOALI operation in the Central African Republic looks through his scope at a The impoverished landlocked country is a little larger than France but sparsely populated and Djotodia is facing the same difficulty as his predecessors in extending his authority beyond the capital. Chaos followed Bozize’s ouster and reports of widespread summary executions, looting and abuses against civilians spurred the international community into action. Former Seleka commanders gone rogue have established mini-fiefdoms scattered across the country in which they sew terror. In some areas, villagers have responded by forming vigilantes, some of which have specifically targeted Muslims.

“I knew it wouldn’t last 10 years. But once again, the most important thing is the team, not me,” the Real Madrid striker said. “It had been a while. I’m very happy but it’s not just about my goal. You have to talk about the match, how spectacular it was. If it was 6-0 then that’s down to the whole team.” Benzema remains under pressure, however, and in the last two games has lost his starting place to Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, who scored twice and led the line brilliantly against the Australians with his touch and link play. “Giroud must take credit,” Deschamps said. “He started against Belarus and yesterday, and he also scored.” Giroud said in an interview leading up to the game that he felt he had earned the right to start at No. 9. “We scored six, that’s why I’m smiling today, and because I scored twice. I won’t lie,” Giroud said.

France pledges more troops to Central Africa

In Britain the U.K. Independence Party, which favors pulling out of the European Union altogether, is rising in the polls and claims to be the country’s legitimate third party. Britain’s ruling conservatives fear the prospect of UKIP taking so many of the votes they lose the next elections. Meanwhile, another euroskeptic party, Alternative for Germany, just missed out on a place in the Bundestag in last month’s general election. It came from nowhere to fall just short of the threshold of 5 percent the national vote needed to enter Parliament. But is the rise in the vote of these once-fringe groups the result of immigration, or of skepticism about Europe, or is it simply a protest vote against hard times and economic stagnation? Most likely, it is a combination of the three, combined with distrust of conventional politicians. Whatever the components of their appeal, it makes it difficult to dismiss these parties as “extreme right” or racist or even neo-Nazi. It is more complex than that. Austria’s Freedom Party is drawing mass support from working-class, blue-collar voters, University of Vienna political scientist Sylvia Kritzinger says, “Because of the policies they put forward, like immigration reform , anti-European integration, anti-corruption in the political system.” In France, the FN appears to be losing its pariah status and appealing to disillusioned socialist and conservative voters with promises to crack down on crime and illegal immigration and to leave the euro currency. Under its new leader, Marine Le Pen, a lawyer and mother of three, the FN’s image has both broadened and softened since the days when it was founded and led by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen , who was easily dismissed as an extremist for calling the Holocaust “a footnote of history.” In last year’s presidential election, when she won 17 percent of the vote, almost 1-in-5 women and nearly a quarter of those aged 18-25 voted for her. The real tide that is running is the steady erosion of the traditional two-party system of left and right that harks back to the days of Karl Marx when a party of capital faced a party of labor. That two-party system no longer reflects social reality, when the labor unions are weak and there is no longer a mass industrial working class. Moreover capital tends to mean pension funds rather than rich factory owners in top hats. The growth of new parties like the Greens and euroskeptics, or regional parties in Scotland and Catalonia, or single issue groups like the briefly popular Pirates in Germany, suggests that loyalties are weakening to the old two-party system.

Giroud takes his chance as France eye playoffs

He added: “I’ve played for France for two years. When I got the chance to start, it always went well. I’ve always been patient and I’m proud of that. “I have said that I wanted to play more and it’s good for France that I can compete with Karim.” Benzema came off the bench at halftime to score the sixth against Australia and end his 15-month international goal drought, but Giroud had already gained ground. Should he shine again at Stade de France, Giroud will feel almost sure of keeping his place next month as Deschamps builds unity and confidence. “The collective performance was very good against Australia and the eleven would deserve to start again on Tuesday. It won’t be the case, but I will maintain the hard core,” said Deschamps. “The two games are all about what we can expect in November,” he added. “If we had to play a decider now, I know what I would do. When all the players are good, I have to make choices and it’s more complicated. “But I’m not going to complain about it.” Finland are expected to give France a more thorough test than a weak Australia. Third in Group I with nine points, the Nordic team have conceded six goals in seven games and held Spain 1-1 last month.
