Jihad is taking place at Calais daily, yet authorities don’t even seem to notice.
A few days back PJ media reported:
“A new ISIS terror video has urged followers to use household goods to conduct jihad against the West. …
During the film, terrorists are advised they do not require sophisticated weaponry or explosives to launch an attack. …
Instead, they are told to equip themselves with baseball bats, power drills, screw drivers and even hypodermic syringes.”
Calais truckers fear for their lives as migrants armed with BASEBALL BATS attack them
A THRONG of violent armed migrants have been filmed holding up a UK-bound lorry as they battled to scramble onboard vehicles in Calais.

Mountains of branches can be seen on the main road into the northern French port, blocking off the essential thoroughfare into Britain.
The dashcam footage shows a group of men standing in between the branches and the lorry, armed with baseball bats and large sticks which they wave at the Flemish trucker.
As the driver puts his foot down on the accelerator, one of the men hits the lorry’s cab.
Driver Marc Lombaerts, told Belgian media: “If I dared put my foot down, they immediately made it clear that they would strike the windshield.”
The terrifying incident emerged on the same day as a 37-year-old Ethiopian migrant was murdered and 15 others seriously injured during a “hugely violent” fight between rival UK-bound gangs from Sudan and Afghanistan.
The migrants were seen threatening the driver with sticks and bats.
The man was joined by others as one hit the lorry’s cab when the driver revved.
The latest figures show the lawless Jungle camp in Calais has now increased its numbers to more than 9,000 migrants attempting to get to Britain, despite the demolition of most of the camp by French authorities.
In just two months the population of the notorious shantytown filled with migrants desperate to cross the Channel has doubled, sparking a border alert.
An Ethiopian man was murdered during a fight in the Jungle camp.
Experts last night said their increasingly dangerous attempts to get on board lorries and even tourist cars could put the safety of travellers at risk ahead of one of the busiest weekends of the year at the port.
The gangs were competing to get access to the motorway so they could try and force vehicles to slow down or stop, ambush them and smuggle themselves into the UK.
Fights ending in fatalities are becoming more common in Calais as numbers surge.
A source close to the murder probe said: “As two gangs from Sudan and Afghanistan competed to get on to the motorway to stop the lorries a fight broke out.
“Weapons including knives and sharpened sticks were used and the situation got very violent. It was a hugely violent fight and there were similar disturbances in other parts of the road system.”
The bloodshed follows a disturbingly familiar pattern as the migrants crisis turns ugly.
The soaring population of the Jungle comes despite French authorities repeatedly promising to reduce its size to 1,500 inhabitants.
Ukip leadership candidate Diane James said: “The Calais problem will not go away. France has to have the courage to arrest and deport.
“A hard-line, yes, but the only way to send a clear message. A country that can ban the burkini should be capable of dealing with this problem and not holding the UK to ransom in the process.”
A census put the Jungle population at 4,480 in June but aid workers estimate it is home to at least 9,100 now with hundreds more arriving each week.
The late August bank holiday traditionally marks the end of the summer holiday season. The long weekend will see a huge increase in the amount of traffic heading to the ferry terminal prompting a warning from experts.
Road Haulage Association chief executive Richard Burnett said: “The number of migrants in Calais has now topped 9,000 with more arriving every day, all with the sole intent of reaching the UK by whatever means possible.
“Only the French military have the number of personnel that are so desperately needed. We have been calling for this course of action for over 12 months yet attacks on hauliers, and now motorists are increasing. Does an HGV driver, or even a family, have to die before action is taken?”
