The EU’s serious inability to deal with crime and terror threats

Europe is clearly having serious issues with internal security and facts speak for themselves; in a period of time that goes from September 17th to October 9th, France, Italy and Germany have seen a series of attacks that cannot avoid raising concerns. On September 17th a Yemeni refugee armed with a pair of scissors attacked a military unit stationed outside Milan's Central train station while yelling "Allahu akbar", wounding a soldier belonging to the "Alpini" infantry corps before being taken down and blocked by 51 year-old Senegalese citizen Diagne Samba, who was just passing nearby. A video shot by Russian tourists as well as local witnesses have exposed how the unit appeared paralyzed during the attack and some even raised the question of what would have happened if Mr. Diagne hadn't been there. Eventually it turned out that the 23 year-old Yemeni was already known to Italian authorities as he had already created problems the previous night by climbing a roof and threatening other refugees with a pen. However the following day he was free to wonder around and attack the units patrolling the station. In his phone the investigators found videos of the war in Yemen.

Rap for JAY-Z and the NFL

As regular readers of Pravda.Report are undoubtedly aware, ever since the National Football League (NFL) banned Colin Kaepernick a little more than three years ago for protesting racial injustice during the playing of the national anthem, I have been writing articles not only condemning this ban, but also the NFL ownership's blatant hypocrisy and shameless racism.  But after musician Jay-Z was signed to camouflage these realities, I realized a new approach might be necessary.  For readers who may not be familiar with the use of just first, last, or abbreviated names in the rap verse below, "Kaep" is a shortened version of "Kaepernick"; "Goodell" is the commissioner of the NFL and was instrumental in the duplicitous signing of Jay-Z; "John and Tommie" refer to the sprinters who protested during the playing of the national anthem at the 1968 Olympics; and Ali is, of course, the late, great Muhammad Ali, who caused outrage for refusing to be inducted into the military during America's war against Vietnam. Here's a little rap, so you can see

But a question has been raised recently, and many people don't seem to have an answer to it.
