Macron pledges additional French border police amid ‘growing terrorism threat’

If Macron, Merkel and Trump can all call out Islamist terror for what it is, why can’t Boris Johnson?

Macron’s proposed border reforms follow a number of terrorist attacks in Europe, including Monday’s mass shooting in Vienna in which four people were killed by a gunman who had pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). 

That incident came after a series of violent incidents in France, including the recent shooting of a Greek Orthodox priest in Lyon, the murder of three people in Nice a week ago, and the beheading of teacher Samuel Paty in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on October 16. 

The Mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi on Thursday proposed to “suspend the Schengen agreements for a certain time,” in response to the attack.

“Nice was not affected because it was Nice, but because of its proximity to the Italian border,” he claimed.

Macron has also previously called for changes to the Schengen Area, warning in March of “the death of Schengen” as Europe braced for Covid-19 and shut its internal borders. 

But the French leader has also taken a tough stance on Europe’s free movement zone for immigration reasons. Last year, he said all Schengen nations had to accept “obligations of responsibility” such as border protection and stressed that “solidarity” was needed to address the issue of asylum-seekers.
