An Algerian "chemist" who was accepted into the United Kingdom in 2001 as a "refugee" repayed his welcoming British hosts by spraying food at supermarkets across the country with his own feces.

Even though chemist Sahnoun Daifallah, 50, was jailed for spraying food with his own excrement, a court has ruled that Daifallah can not be deported.
The Algerian received a nine year sentence, handed down by the Bristol Crown Court in 2009 for contaminating food, wine and books at four businesses in May 2008.
An expensive legal battle to deport Daifallah, costing £250,000 has nevertheless failed, the British daily The Daily Mail reported.
The chemist sprayed a mixture of urine and faeces from a container concealed in his laptop bag on food, edibles and children’s books. He sprayed food at the Air Balloon Pub in Birdlip, books at a Waterstones bookshop in Cirencester and two days later, he sprayed produce at a Tesco in Quedgley and at Morrisons in Abbeydale. Damage to the Morrisons was estimated at £700,000.
Staff at the bookshop noticed the smell but only discovered that a total 706 books were contaminated, most of them in the children’s section, after he had left the store. Daifallah denied possession of material to contaminate goods and having an offensive weapon, namely a catapult with marbles.
A Tesco customer saw Daifallah reach into his bag and produce a jet of foul-smelling fluid over the frozen chips. He then moved on to the wine section where a member of staff saw a fine vapour come out of his bag and on to the wine, leaving brown fluid over the shelves. The store had to be closed for two days while it was cleaned and the cost of the damage came to half a million pounds, the Scotsman reported.
The “highly skilled” immigrant was granted refugee status two years after arriving in Britain in 1999. He has been in immigration custody since February 2013, The Sun reported.
Despite two judicial reviews, he remains in Britain. According to the tabloid, the 54 months he has spent in immigration detention have cost the taxpayer £155,000 already. Daifallah’s estimated legal bills of £100,000, brings the cost to a total of £250,000, MailOnline reported.
Alex Wild, of the Taxpayers Alliance told the British Express: “There are far too many cases like this and the cost cannot be justified when the public finances are in such a dire state.”
Daifallah’s lawyers now argue he has been in custody for too long and he should be freed. Some 6 171 foreign national offenders were deported between 2016 and 2017 – the highest number of deportations ever. Over 37 000 foreign national offenders have been removed from the UK since 2010, but the chemist is not one of them.

The HagueSome 240 people were arrested, mostly in Amsterdam, after riots broke out in at least 10 cities across the Netherlands on Sunday evening. On Saturday night was the first curfew in the Netherlands since the end of World War II, and police arrested scores of young foreign men and handed out 3 600 fines for curfew violations.
BrusselsCountries in the EU are theoretically bound to the neutrality obligation in its use of tax revenues: The taxpayer's money must not be used for political purposes. But just as the German government wants to spend 1 billion euros in the next four years on the so-called “fight against the right”, the EU is funding a network of “civil society” NGOs that represent clearly left-wing politics, actively combatting conservative politicians and their parties – Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orban are but two examples.
MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.
GeneveSwitzerland will hold a referendum that could stop the government from imposing lockdown measures. The country has not introduced a lockdown like many other European countries, but has instead - like Sweden - mainly emphasized personal responsibility. In terms of the spread of infection and the number of deaths, it is about the same as in Sweden.
The Minister President of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous of the 16 states of Germany, Armin Laschet was elected as the new CDU chairman at the digital CDU party conference on Saturday. In the runoff election he prevailed with 521 votes against his toughest competitor Friedrich Merz (466 votes). In a nutshell, the party establishment pushed through its candidate, while the voter's candidate failed.
Deir EzzorThe Syrian province of Deir Ezzor is back in the news after Israel's devastating airstrikes on Syria. However, against this background, most of the Western media has overlooked other events that may prove to be far more important to the security of both the Middle East and Europe.

ParisA particularly worrying assessment of crime in the French countryside has seen the light. Crime is on the rise almost everywhere in France according to the 2020 report from the SSMI - Statistical Service of the French Ministry of the Interior .
ParisThe numbers are overwhelming, and so are the testimonials. Data collected by French pollster Ifop for the Jaurès Foundation, which had interviewed several teachers confronted with political Islam even in their classes, paint a dreary picture.
