    Prefects will be meeting on Thursday at the French Ministry of Interior to discuss the plan.

    Prefects will be meeting at Place Beauvau for an exceptional seminar on the theme of “the fight against Islamism and community withdrawal” the French weekly Le Journal du Dimanche reported.

    No fewer than four ministers — Nicole Belloubet for Justice, Jean-Michel Blanquer for National Education, Julien Denormandie for Cities and Housing, and Marlène Schiappa, in charge of Equality between Women and Men — will be present alongside Interior Minister Christophe Castaner. “This working meeting is in line with the plan to combat radicalisation presented in February 2018,” the ministry said.

    Fifteen “republican reconquest districts”, those most affected by the phenomenon of radicalisation (community withdrawals, departures for Syria, etc), such as Trappes in the Yvelines, had been targeted.

    The action by the State — both administrative and judicial authorities — has resulted in the closure of twelve mosques, four schools and one hundred and thirty drinking establishments linked to the radical Islamist movement.

    The objective is to mobilize all government services throughout the country. Public authorities have also made adjustments of several million euros through the CAF [Caisse d’allocations familiales/Family Allowance Fund] and the Urssaf [Unions de Recouvrement des cotisations de Sécurité Sociale et d’Allocations Familiales/Social Security and Family Allowance Contribution Collection Offices].

    Instruction will be given on Thursday to the prefects to mobilise all the services of the State to apply this plan to the whole country, in line with local circumstances. Locally, prefects will coordinate with departmental assessment groups (GEDs), responsible in particular for monitoring radicalised individuals who pose a risk of violence.

      Too little too late. France is now fighting ‘radicalisation’ at home and abroad in Africa so fighting a war on 2 fronts at a time of civil unrest by the native French. The borders are still wide open to ‘radicals’. If the French military are as depleted and demoralised as the French police, disaster cannot be far away.
