"One of Egypt’s most active smugglers is a Syrian who estimated he earned about £1.5m in 2014 sending an estimated 10,000 migrants to Italy. That was after payments to middlemen, sailing crews, shipowners – and the police. “If I want to smuggle 300 [migrants], the authorities will [arrest] 50 and let 250 go, to show the Italians they are doing some work. Maybe they [take] 100,000 Egyptian pounds ($12,800) per operation,” said the smuggler, who called himself Abu Uday"

'It's not the government that is going to do the work, not state security or the intelligence services or all that, it's us, us Muslims who go the mosque, us Muslims who share the values of the republic.
'It's up to us to speak up about the slightest hint of something fishy and to refer it to the authorities.'
Later in the video he says: 'It is up to us, Muslims of France who have our religion in our hearts, the values and principles of Islam, religion of peace and sharing. It's up to us to *advertiser censored** up the s*** that's inside our religion.'
He adds: 'Let us rise up. Even though there is nothing to justify because the most intelligent people will know that is not what Islam stands for.
The video concludes with Chronic 2 Bass stating: 'Enough is enough of these pseudo-Muslims who dishonour two million Muslims.
'It is up to us to not stay silent, deaf and blind. Hit them hard. The solution will come from us, French Muslims.'
The video emerged and quickly went viral as France continues to mourn the deaths of 132 people killed in a wave of terrorist attacks carried out by extremists.
