Badie: "the Daesh and Al Qaeda are entrepreneurs of violence"

Four days after the attacks in Paris, everyone agrees that we need to focus on coordination of intelligence services. The French operational efficiency is being questioned, but Interior Minister rejects any failure and stresses that "the zero risk doesn't exist."

"This attack was prepared by cells that are outside the national territory and by individuals who were not known of our services," says Bernard Cazeneuve.

The ongoing investigation since Friday shows the opposite, namely that some of the attackers were referenced. In the case of Samy Amimour identified by investigators as one of the suicide bombers. Indicted in October 2012 for links to terrorist groups has been placed under judicial supervision. Crossed Syria in 2013 and returned later to France.

The group is part another Frenchman, Ismaïl Omar Mostefaï. The young man with a criminal record was part of the list of suspects with links to the authorities of the Islamic State.

Amedi Coulibaly et Cherif Kouachi authors of the attacks in January, this year, and Mohamed Merah in Toulouse and Montauban, in 2012, are other examples.

Turkish source ensures that Ankara alerted the French police to the activities of Omar Mostefai in 2014 and 2015 and that nothing was done.

The French authorities have asked for more information about this man, but only after the attacks in Paris. A risky procedure, say analysts and revise in the future so that the fight against terrorism can prove effective.

Euronews spoke with Bertrand Badie International Relations expert and Professor of political science in Paris, on what is and can be done to prevent attacks such as those that were committed in the French capital.

Mohamed Abdel Azim: we can say that after the attacks in Paris, the output of Bashar Al-Assad went to the background in the face of the fight against the self-proclaimed Islamic State?

Azim: Is the international community more United in the face of this group after the attacks?

Badie: "the big problem is that he is, in other words, what is the Daesh, an action against the radical group or from Daesh? Answer to this question too easy to say: "this is a war." But the war in our European memory evokes other things. Evokes the confrontation of powers, the clash between States, the confrontation between armies by territories and borders, but also evokes the diplomacy ready to act and to begin negotiations ... and none of this with the Daesh. So, simplify identity since group considering it a Proto-State and think the best way to achieve it is through war, it seems to me a mistake. "

Azim: in the Era of globalization, the terrorist threat is based on sleeper cells. What can Europe do about this?
