Frenchdefinition of 'state of emergency'
Just an FYI

French President François Hollande was quick to declare a state of emergency in the wake of Friday’s bloody terror attacks in Paris. But what does the "etat d'urgence" mean for the country and its citizens as they go about their daily lives?

The state of emergency measures are set out in a 1955 law and are designed to be used in “cases of imminent danger resulting from serious breaches of public order, or in case of events threatening, by their nature and gravity, public disaster”.

The measures give a number of exceptional powers to the authorities, including the right to set curfews, limit the movement of people and forbid mass gatherings, establish secure zones where people can be monitored and close public spaces such as theatres, bars, museums and other meeting places.

The state of emergency also gives more powers to the security services and police, such as the right to conduct house searches at any time without judicial oversight, enforce house arrest and confiscate certain classes of weapons, even if people hold them legally.

Parliament can extend measures

A state of emergency can be put in place by the French president for a maximum of 12 days, after which he must get parliamentary approval for an extension. Hollande would therefore need to get parliament's backing by November 25 if he wants to extend the measures he put in place on Friday.

The last time France declared a state of emergency was during the 2005 riots in the Paris suburbs. Back in 2005, parliament approved a three-month extension to the measures introduced by then president Jacques Chirac.

A state of emergency has only been declared one other time since the end of France's 1962 war in Algeria. That was in December 1984 amid violence in New Caledonia, a French archipelago in the Pacific Ocean east of Australia.

This is purely the usual load of waffle by the French Government. What they are actually saying is; we haven't got clue how to deal with this so we'll spout a load of garbage and hope the public buys it!

The best thing that could happen to France is for Le Pen to get elected; she'd sort it out!

Merkel, Cameron, Hollande are complete disasters at best and neither trad left or trad right wing governments have the faintest idea on how to reselve any of the issues affecting us.

They don't call Hollande "Flanby" for nothing! By the way, it's a type of custard flan - delicious actually.

Merkel is a German tart, all promise but no filling and a bitter aftertaste.

By constantly endorsing pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli policies, France has obviously been seeking to appease Islamic countries.

France seems convinced that such policies will keep Muslim terrorists from targeting French nationals and interests.

The French are now in grave danger of mistakenly believing that the November 13 attacks occurred because France did not appease the Muslim terrorists enough!

When the terrorists see that their pressure works -- increasing the pressure should work even better!

Expect more frequent and severe attacks.

A friend in the foreign service now in the sandbox tells me there were lesser attacks in Syria and Northern Iraq that are strongly correlated with the Paris event. I can't independently confirm it, but it certainly makes sense in context of the ongoing phase of global jihad. They are on track to achieve global caliphate by 2020, just as Zarquawi revealed in their master plan. That's deeply concerning in light of the huge migration from the Arab world to the EU and US.

I see a clear pattern in the global jihad. I would try my very best to steer clear of it for now. The inept and incompetent foreign police of the US Our government under the current administration deserves a large share of the blame for this mess they have created, by leaving a power vacuum in the region which was quickly exploited by Russia, Iran, and ISIS.

Obama's foreign policy initiated by Secretary of State Clinton and being continued by the equally incompetent Kerry seems to underwrite the terrorist cause and tactics, so as an unfortunate America I feel compelled to leave it alone and hope for the best. Our only hope is that our failed foreign policy will become a serious campaign issue to torpedo any hope of Hillary getting elected. Anyone with a brain can see that US foreign policy has been an unmitigated failure. Everyone in UK and the EU certainly knows it, but the leftist media are preparing Hillary for coronation.

Until all in what we used to call the Free World, back in COld War daysa, the generate the collective will to call this thing by its proper name (Islamic conquest) and deal with it head on, the killers will only grow bolder. If feckless inaction and political correctness are allowed to continue western society is doomed.

Appologies for the typos, but I presume the jist of it is clear enough. It is difficult to type when you are angry!
