EU agrees to tighten checks on all travellers at Schengen borders: sources

EU nations agreed Friday to immediately tighten checks on all travellers, including European nationals, at the external borders of the passport-free Schengen area following the Paris attacks, European sources said.

Interior ministers from the 28-nation European Union holding an emergency meeting in Brussels also backed France’s call for a fundamental revision of the Schengen deal to allow the “systematic” controlling of EU citizens at borders, the sources said.

“Member states undertake to implement immediately the necessary systematic and coordinated checks at external borders, including on individuals enjoying the right of free movement,” a draft copy of a statement from the meeting said.

The Paris attacks in which 129 people died have raised troubling questions about border security in the Schengen zone, where citizens of 22 EU countries, plus non-EU Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Liechtenstein enjoy passport-free travel.

Schengen has come under scrutiny following the revelations that some of the Paris attackers came from Belgium, and that alleged ringleader Abdelhamid Abaaoud may have come back from fighting with IS in Syria to take part before his death in a police raid on Wednesday.

EU officials said travellers will now not only have their passports examined but have their personal information checked with databases.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS AND
    TERRORISTS ARE NOT MUSLIMS.”
    In the HISTORY of the world, who has KILLED
    maximum l INNOCENT human beings
    1) “Hitler”
    Do you know who he was?
    He was a Christian, but media will never call
    Christians terrorists.
    2) “Joseph Stalin called as Uncle Joe”.
    He has killed 20 million human beings including
    14.5 million were starved to death.
    Was he a Muslim?
    3) “Mao Tse Tsung (China)”
    He has killed 14 to 20 million human beings.
    Was he a Muslim?
    4) “Benito Mussolini (Italy)”

    6) Embargo put by George Bush in Iraq,
    1/2 million children
    has been killed in Iraq alone!!! Imagine these
    people are never called terrorists by the media.
    Why?
    Today the majority of the non-muslims are afraid
    by hearing the words “JIHAD”.
    Jihad is an Arabic word which comes from root
    Arabic word “JAHADA” which means “TO
    STRIVE” or “TO STRUGGLE” against evil and for
    justice. It does not
    mean killing innocents.
    The difference is we stand against evil, not with
    evil”.
    You still think that ISLAM is the problem?
    1. The First World War, 17 million dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    2. The Second World War, 50-55 million dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    3. Nagasaki atomic bombs 200000 dead

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS AND
    TERRORISTS ARE NOT MUSLIMS.”

    Can we quickly take a look at the HISTORY of VIOLENCE inthe world, who has KILLED
    maximum INNOCENT human beings?

    1) “Hitler”
    Do you know who he was? Was he a Muslim? No, he was a Christian and a 1st Degree Terrorist.
    He even told his people “Jesus Christ was a Christian, but the Jews killed him!”
    But the media will never call Hitler a Christian terrorists.

    2) “Joseph Stalin, called as Uncle Joe”.
    He killed about 20 million human beings including 14.5 million who were starved to death.
    Was he a Muslim?

    3) “Mao Tse Tsung (China)”
    He killed between 14 to 20 million human beings.
    Was he a Muslim?

    4) “Benito Mussolini (Italy)”
    killed 400 thousand human beings.
    Was he a Muslim? No, he was a Christian Terrorist!

    5) “Ashoka” In Kalinga Battle
    He has killed 100 thousand human beings.
    Was he a Muslim?

    6) George Bush (Snr.)
    You know him for sure. The embargo he placed on Iraq killed about 500,000 children!!!

    7) George W. Bush (Jnr.)’s attack on Afghanistan and Iraq Killed millions of innocent people including women and children, in his purported war against terrorism campaign after the 9-11 attacks to which many American sceptics have presented irrefutable facts to prove that it was an “inside job” from which Bush himself had so much to benefit.

    Imagine these people are never called terrorists by the media. Why?

    Today the majority of the non-Muslims are afraid by hearing the words “JIHAD”.
    Jihad is an Arabic word which comes from root Arabic word “JAHADA” which means “TO
    STRIVE” or “TO STRUGGLE” against evil. It’s a very wide concept for us as Muslims because we still have to continue to strive to earn a living and to make ends meet in our businesses and on domestic responsibilities.

    The difference is WE STAND AGAINST EVIL, and NOT WITH EVIL”.

    But if you still think ISLAM is the problem?

    1. The First World War, 17 million dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    2. The Second World War, 50-55 million dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    3. Nagasaki atomic bombs 200000 dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    4. The War in Vietnam, over 5 million dead
    (caused by non-Muslim).

    6. The War in Iraq (so far) 12,000,000 deaths
    (caused by non-Muslim).
    7. Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine, Burma etc

    deaths (caused by non-Muslim).
