Solved with assistance of James Dennes (GitHub Staff) ! :)

The problem was the proxy.

The solution is :

1) if you run "git clone" with "GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1" you will have more 
information :

GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 git clone

2) clear parameters regarding proxy from your *local* config file and enter 
the correct proxy URL for the "http.proxy" in the *global* config setting :

git config --unset http.proxy
git config --unset https.proxy
git config --unset remote.origin.proxy

git config --unset core.gitproxy

git config *--global* http.proxy <http-proxy-url>

2) retry "git clone".
