Interview with Yassine Ferchichi

Yassine Ferchichi is a Tunisian national who fled persecution from his country of origin. He was arrested and sentenced in France on terrorism charges. His conviction was largely based on statements made by M’hamed Benyamina under torture in Algerian custody. In 2009, Yassine Ferchichi was deported to Senegal in opposition with a decision of the European Court of Human Rights. Since then, he has been living homeless without any legal document.

Guantanamo Bay: France unveiled

A series of cables released by Wikileaks shows the extent of the French diplomatic complicity in the American war on terror. It clearly demonstrates that France has aligned her policy with the US administration since the beginning. In the early years of the war on terror, France has deployed all her diplomatic efforts and used her political influence to maintain the status quo on Guantanamo. With the American new concerns with regards to the closure of GITMO and the resettlement of detainees, France has also reviewed her position on the question and followed the US “new policy”.

Buried alive.

Djamel explains how suicide and madness are constantly trying to break into the mental fortress he tried to build. But the absence of sunlight and the permanent immuring also harm the body: muscles suffer atrophy, bones become fragile, the skin starts its decomposition and the appetite fades away.

Fabricating terrorism in France

Recently, a leading French anti-terrorist judge has been accused of perjury and obstruction of justice. He is suspected of having voluntarily misled an inquiry of which he was in charge for political interests.This case is not isolated. It simply highlights some of the methods used to manipulate the judiciary and public opinion in order to create Muslim terrorist plots that might not exist. In effect, the very same judge has been subject to accusations as grave as cooperating with countries known for their use of torture and other manoeuvres to build up cases against alleged terrorists.

Taxes, death and Schedule 7

As the saying goes in life there are two things that you can’t avoid: death and taxes. Well, I formally suggest that this saying be revised, or at least amended, to add in ‘unless you are a Muslim, in which case you will also have to deal with schedule 7 of the Terrorism 2000 act.’ Granted it may be a little long to catch on, but the point still stands.
