L'EDITO DU JDD. On Europe 1, the editorial director of the JDD, Hervé Gattegno reviews the Conflans-Sainte-Honorine attack and the double front facing the government, the coronavirus epidemic and terrorism.

You come back to the aftermath of the Conflans-Sainte-Honorine attack, which occurred the week when Emmanuel Macron decreed the curfew to slow the Covid-19 epidemic. From now on, the power must face a double crisis…

Yes, two crises at the same time, it is like a fatality of "at the same time" which would catch up with Emmanuel Macron, and which he would have done well without. Two terrible shocks, on the one hand an unprecedented and almost irrepressible epidemic - in any case, we have not found a way to contain it for the moment; and on the other, the return of the terrorist threat, but with this too a new stage: we had known murderous attacks against the police, soldiers, a priest, children in a Jewish school, and of course civilians, French killed at random, to martyr France - this time, it is a teacher who was killed, savagely, just because he had taught freedom of expression to his students. Faced with these two horrors, the virus and barbarism, power is forced to reinvent itself, and so do we. But with this contradiction: faced with the epidemic, we must change our way of life; in the face of terrorism, we want to defend our way of life.

Martin Scorsese's Crime Films Ranked, From 'Boxcar Bertha' to 'The Irishman' (Photos)

  Martin Scorsese's Crime Films Ranked, From 'Boxcar Bertha' to 'The Irishman' (Photos) Martin Scorsese has made 25 narrative feature films, and only eight of them have been about people who live a criminal lifestyle. Yet when we think about his work, we think about the gangsters. Not Alice (who doesn't live here anymore), not Christ (and his last temptation), but wise guys in slick suits who break the law, look good doing it, and always end up dead, miserable or both. That's probably because Scorsese, who grew up in New York City and knows the culture intimately, brings a specificity to his crime movies that matches his well-known virtuosity behind a camera.

Terrorism is a term used to describe violence or other harmful acts committed (or threatened) against civilians by groups or persons for political or other ideological goals. Most definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear or " terror ," are perpetrated for a political goal

Acts of terrorism are committed throughout the world. Learn about some of the main reasons people resort to terrorist acts. Terrorism was originally theorized in the context of insurgency and guerrilla warfare, a form of organized civic violence by a non-state army or group.

What is new, too, is that there is no longer any national unity in the face of these ordeals. There are many criticisms of the management of the epidemic, there are also criticisms against the government in the field of the fight against Islamism. Is this the democratic debate?

Anyway, that's part of it. The big difference between democracies and totalitarian states is that power can be criticized freely, even with ferocity - and even under the greatest difficulties. To be frank, I am less shocked by the criticisms of political opponents than by the initiative of the judges to go and search the homes of former ministers and the Minister of Health in office the day after the curfew was announced. - either it is provocation, or it is inconsistency. In both cases it is very shocking, one wonders what game the magistrates who do this are playing. Now, with regard to health as well as to terrorism, it is normal that we can discuss the means implemented, the strategy and above all the results. With this reservation that we cannot demand immediate results, neither against the virus nor against terrorism.

Terrorism is, in the broadest sense, the use of intentional violence for political or religious purposes. It is used in this regard primarily to refer to violence during peacetime or in the context of war against

This is not the case in the UK because all Ministers in the government are members of the legislature, some senior judges sit in the upper house of the parliament and the formal head of the judiciary is a senior minister. This is an illustration of how pragmatic and flexible the British political system is.

Emmanuel Macron was on television on Wednesday, Jean Castex is interviewed in the JDD . Do they have a chance to take advantage of this double crisis?

They do not benefit, as we said a moment ago, from a movement of national unity. That said, there is always an increase in legitimacy for those in power in the midst of trials - we saw it for Nicolas Sarkozy in the 2008 financial crisis and for François Hollande after the 2015 attacks. But we know that this does not last . What is cruel, for Emmanuel Macron as for Jean Castex, is that they are really taken against the grain, and even against the job. Castex was appointed because he was the Mr. Deconfinement, so he had to embody a hometown optimism: is forced to embody the opposite. He was the quiet father, he became the whipping father. To see the polls, it does not succeed. As for Emmanuel Macron, his bet was to modernize the country. He hoped that by accelerating very hard, we would overcome social and identity discomforts and that we would leave them behind us without really having to resolve them. He wanted to transform everything, now he has to preserve everything. If both the President and the Prime Minister do not want to risk decomposition, they will have to play a role of composition.
