French Plot to Partition Libya Disclosed August 15, 2015 - 18:10 TEHRAN (Tasnim) – France, in partnership with an Arab littoral state of the Persian Gulf, is involved in a plot to rip Libya apart and gain control of a new disintegrated country in the south, Libyan sources said. Print Algeria’s al-Shorouk newspaper quoted unnamed Libyan sources as saying that the French plot is being carried out under the guise of meetings between a number of commanders in south of Libya –including military and police officers and prominent tribal figures - and some Arab countries. The meetings are said to be part of a plan to unify southern Libya for the settlement of the country’s problems, but are in fact a French-masterminded plot to disintegrate Libya and establish a colonial-era system, it added. According to the report, the two new countries after partition of Libya will be called al-Tuareg and al-Tabu, with respective capitals of Ubari and Murzuq. African nationalities will be given prominence compared to the Arab descent in the new countries, it noted. The paper also cited political activists as saying that the unnamed Persian Gulf littoral Arab country is definitely the United Arab Emirates, making a reference to Abu Dhabi’s past cooperation with France in Mali
According to Kommersant, prize nominees will be chosen by a commission named by the Kremlin administration, which among others will include members of the council and the Public Chamber, another advisory group.
Activists expressed concern that Putin could use the prize to co-opt critics, or to create divisions by separating Kremlin-approved rights groups from organizations treated as enemies of the state -- much as the government is accused of having done with politicians and parties.
In such an atmosphere, Chikov said activists awarded the prize could face a tough choice about whether to accept it.
"This will prompt discussions, which have in fact already begun, about whether it is okay to accept this prize -- whether it is appropriate or inappropriate," he said. "This is also one of the aims of this initiative in my opinion: the very presence of this discussion and the setting of human rights activists before a moral dilemma."

A record number of migrants look set to flow into Europe this year, with human traffickers becoming increasingly aggressive as they take advantage of chaos in Africa and the Middle East, the EU borders chief said. Many asylum seekers and illegal immigrants are reaching Europe via the Mediterranean sea, with hundreds dying during the perilous crossing, said Fabrice Leggeri, executive director of Frontex, the European Union's border cooperation agency.
US Vice-President, Joe Bidden, said that Europe needs to better integrate the migrants into the societies which are living. Biden participates in a three-day White House summit on countering violent extremism. Today, the US vice president, said: “we have to ... engage our communities and engage those who might be susceptible to being radicalised because they are marginalised. Societies have to provide an affirmative alternative for immigrant communities, a sense of opportunity, a sense of belonging that discredits the terrorists' appeal to fear, isolation, hatred, resentment.” France24 reported that the White House believes that Europe is vulnerable to radicalised attacks because immigrants in the EU are less integrated into the local societies compared with the US. “I’m not suggesting ... that I think America has all the answers here. We just have a lot more experience,” Biden said and stressed that “Inclusion counts.”
