To mark the 100-year anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, France held a spectacular World’s Fair, called the Exposition Universelle, in 1889.

As a welcome for visitors, a colossal entrance arch was constructed near the banks of the Seine: the Eiffel Tower.

Dozens of ornate pavilions and exhibition halls were erected across 240 acres, containing displays of art, crafts, industry, machines and new inventions.

In addition to showing off French achievements, the exposition also displayed exhibits from around the world, including South America, Africa and Asia.

Islamic State warned in a new video on Monday that countries taking part in air strikes against Syria would suffer the same fate as France, and threatened to attack in Washington.

The video, which appeared on a site used by Islamic State to post its messages, begins with news footage of the aftermath of Friday’s Paris shootings in which at least 129 people were killed.

The message to countries involved in what it called the “crusader campaign” was delivered by a man dressed in fatigues and a turban, and identified in subtitles as Al Ghareeb the Algerian.

What To Know About Calais’ Spiraling Migrant Crisis

Leave a comment

.

The French town is the site of a makeshift camp called “the Jungle.”

 Thousands of migrants are living in a makeshift shanty village in the northern French port town of Calais known as “the Jungle.” Night after night hundreds journey from the Jungle toward the nearby Channel Tunnel. The tunnel is a direct route to England, where migrants believe they can have a better life. Many are arrested, and some have died — just how many make it across successfully is unknown.

Many migrants are from war-torn countries, like Libya and Syria, and their numbers in Calais have peaked in recent weeks as efforts to reach safety have become increasingly desperate. Although Calais has been a site of unauthorized migrant camps for more than 15 years, the governments in France and the U.K. are coming under mounting pressure from policymakers and the public to stem the flow of migration.

More than 37,000 migrants have been blocked from illegally crossing from France into England this year, according to the company operating the tunnel between the countries.

Service in the Eurotunnel has been disrupted repeatedly in recent weeks by migrants’ attempts in the French city of Calais to board trucks or trains heading to the U.K.

France’s Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday that nine migrants have died in attempts since June 26 and that he will be deploying 120 additional police to stem the crisis.

A plane carrying at least 150 people crashed in southern France on Tuesday en route from Barcelona to Düsseldorf, the French civil aviation authority said.

The Airbus A320 plane was operated by Lufthansa’s Germanwings budget airline, and lost contact with air traffic control about an hour after it took off, the airline said.

A French military helicopter located the wreckage of the plane near the French town of Barcelonnette, Reuters reported.

Ending a seven-hour hostage siege, French security forces stormed a printing factory outside Paris on Friday and killed the two brothers suspected in the massacre at Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Almost simultaneously, police raided a kosher supermarket in the capital itself and killed a gunman who took hostages there.

One hostage was freed at the printing factory, authorities said. At the market, four hostages were killed and 15 freed, according to Israeli government officials who spoke to their French counterparts. The four dead hostages were killed by the gunman before the police raid, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said. Four officers were injured, one seriously.

The Merger of ISIS and al-Qaeda Could Cripple the Civilized World

Take a barbaric army, add strategic jihadists—and a new evil is born.

Organized and disciplined, ISIS is grabbing territory to build a state.

On their hit list—the state of Israel. 

As ISIS continues to advance on the Syrian town of Kobani and close in on Turkey’s border, experts in Islamic radical movements think the terror group may merge with its al-Qaeda mother organization soon. Together, the group would represent the greatest terror threat to the civilized world.

“I think Britain, Germany and France will witness significant attacks in their territories by the Islamic State. Al-Baghdadi [the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, otherwise known as ISIS] may reconcile with al-Zawhiri [the leader of the al-Qaeda central organization] to fight the crusader enemy. The attacks by the United States and her allies will unite the two groups,” said Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraqi researcher who just finished writing a book about ISIS based on his unique access to the organization’s documents and years of research and advising Iraqi security forces.
