*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(UpDated)/- Immediately after French President Hollande denounced "Islamic Terrorism"'s "Threats", facing the Massacre of 84 Civilian People at Nice by a migrant Truck Driver responding to ISIL's Call to Kill "Americans, Europeans (and)... Citizens of Countries engaged in International Coalition against the Islamic State", controversial Turkish President Erdogan's fans, acting upon Minarets' calls, with cries "Allah Akbar", notoriously Lynched and/or ill-treated Disarmed Young Soldiers POWs (some even "Raped" in Jail, according to Human Rights NGOs), and Launched a Massive Oppression against many Thousands of Political Dissidents throughout all the State sector, Universities, Media and even Private Businesses, due to last during a 3 Months' long period, pretexting of a Strange, Atypical and Failed (Manipulated or Fake ?) "Coup" Attempt of Only "6 Hours", which had Claimed to "Restore ...Human Rights and Freedoms", by a "Peace Movement" (which Immediately ordered Turkish Military Invasion Troops to Withdraw from Iraq, etc), for a "Secular Democracy".


The already almost 18.000 Mass Arrests in Turkey, particularly among Judges (sic !), (reportedly due to be Further Extended also to Many Thousands More later-on), and 50.000 Passports revoked, Hindering Dissidents to Flee Abroad, almost Immediately after a lot of Photos and Videos started to be Published, even at mainstream Media in the EU and accross the World, revealing Horrible Lynching or Grave Ill-Treatments by Brutal Mobs against Young Conscripts Soldiers who had Surrendered, and were either Disarmed, or Abstaining from using their Weapons not even against those who Violently Aggressed them (as a much-sought by Western a.o. Media -including "Skynews", "BBC", "AFP", etc Video clearly proves), obviously Raised several Legitimate Questions.

Strasbourg's PanEuropean CoE Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland, a former Prime Minister from Norway and NOBEL Peace Prize Committee chair, slamed as "Unacceptable", "any Attempt to overthrow  Democratically elected Leaders", but also Reminded the Fact that "Turkey" is "a Member State of the CoE, which defends Democracy, Human rights and the rule of Law". His long-time Spokesman, and CoE's Communication Director, Daniel Holtgen from Germany, subsequently Published a Tweet, after Turkish President Erdogan reportedly promissed to Think about Calls for official Death Penalty to be reestablished by Ankara, Stressing that, as a matter of General Principle, "No CoE Member State can Execute (a) Death Penalty".

------------------

Turkey had notoriously been Obliged to formally Abolish the Official "Death Penalty" Judicial Sanction as part of its attempts Not to be seriously Condemned by the CoE, and particularly its ECHR Judges, about the ill-elucidated Kidnaping of Kurdish Rebels' Leader Ocalan at Nairobi (Kenya), back on early 1999, where he had been pushed to go after his Earlier, Autumn 1998 Attempt to Call from Rome (Italy) for a Cease-Fire and Peace-process to Settle the kurdish issue had backfired, resulting in various Threats of Prosecution, which Obliged him to Try to Flee also through various Other European Countries, including Russia and Greece, etc., before reaching Nairobi, full then of US security services after a recent Terrorist Attack attributed to Extremist Islamic Groupleader Bin Laden. The move had been Closely Followed by CoE, both through its Secretary General and its Committee of Ministers, as well as ECHR, (See several NewsReports published then by "Eurofora"s co-Founder mainly at "MPA" Press Agency).


But Holtgen's tweet was immediately submeged by Comments Urging CoE to act also against "Mass Arrests of Judges" in Turkey, alleged "Street Executions" at Kurdish Areas, and Erdogan's "Islamic Agenda". CoE's Head Spokesman had already anounced, Earlier, that Strasbourg's PanEuropean Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law Asked Turkey to Explain why 3 Journalists, including even the President of its Human Rights Association, had been Arrested recently, as the European Association of Journalists (HQ in Brussels) Strongly Denounced. He also Noted the Fact that CoE's SG Jagland just met with German Foreign Minister Steinmeier in Berlin to discuss various such Topical Human Rights Pending problems, including about Turkey.

(+3 recently Arrested Journalists, including the President of Human Rights' Association -"EFJ" Photo)


Also CoE's Committee of Ministers' Chair, Estonian Foreign Minister Marina Kaljurand, after "firmly Condemn(ing) the Coup Attempt", just "Call(ed) for the Resumption of the Normal Functioning of Public Institutions", while Mobs were reportedly still at the Streets, (allegedly Provoking, f.ex., Fears by the Alewi Community to be Attacked at Instabul, given the fact that one alleged Rebel Officer was from the Alevi Religious Minority). The current Head of CoE's Highest Political Body also expressed her will for Strasbourg's Organisation to work on Turkey "on the basis of the Principles of Democracy, Human Rights and Rule of Law".  She was resuming another Call, by German Chancelor Angie Merkel, to "Solve Turkey's Problems inside the Constitutional order", but also to "Stop the Bloodshed" and "Respect Human Rights" at the aftermath of that 6 Hours-long "Coup". This was Echoed also by French President Hollande who "Expect(s) to see" whether the way Turkey would arrest and judge those involved in the Coup will be "in accordance with the Law".

Incirlik Airtrikes against ISIL's Terrorists Interrupted

Moreover, just 1 day after French President Hollande announced an Intensification of AirStrikes against ISIL's Terrorists following the Massacre of 84 Civilians at Nice, the Erdogan regime in Turkey Cut even Electric Power to Incirlik AirBase, used by the International Coalition against ISIL, after Blocking any entrance and Prohibiting AirFlights there.

According to French Newspaper "Le Figaro", Turkey would practicaly insist for Gulen's Extradition from the USA, until Incirlik AirBase re-opens, while, according to Greek Media "Naftemporiki", Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglou said that some Putchists had come from Incirlik, and, therefore, that AirBase would remain Closed as long as Ankara felt Necessary for "Operations " to "Eradicate" such remnants there, i.e. apparently sine die.


A pretext seems to be the Fact that the Governor of that Strategic AirBase, General Van, was just Arrested for allegedly Participating at a Strange, Atypical and Short-lived "Coup" Attempt, which Durated, in substance, just a Few ...Hours, between 15 and 16 July, from approximately 11 p.m. until 2.30 a.m., followed by a few local Clashes.


-------------------------
Atypical, 6 Hours Attempt to Oust Erdogan
------------------------------------------


Unlike any other "Coup" of the Past, this time, Naming their Group "Movement for Peace in the Fatherland", those Army Officers, reportedly claimed to act for "Democracy, Human Rights and Liberty", as well as in order to "Restore the Constitutional order", and called their Supreme Body "Peace Council", promissing to Guarantee People's Safety and Freedoms "Independently of Religion, Race or Language".

Among the most Important Senior Officers who participated is reportedly included also the Head of the "2nd Army", which deals mainly with the Kurdish and ISIL Challenges in Eastern Turkey, at the Borders with Syria, Iran and Iraq. I.e. some among the "Hottest" Issues, since Erdogan's Governments have been notoriously Accused to Excessively Oppress Kurds, but to have, on the Contrary, some Complicities with ISIL's Extreme Islamic Terrorists.

In parallel, the National TV, seized by the Rebels, Anounced also the "Withdrawal of the Turkish Military from Iraq", Austin (Texas, US) based "Stratfor" GeoPolitical Firm reported.

They also claimed to seek to "Restore a Secular and Democratic State", while, on the Contrary, Violent Mobs unleashed by Erdogan's calls against Young Soldiers who rapidly Gave Up, abstaining from using their Weapons, despite Threats of being Lynched, (as many Photos and Videos revealing Mobs' Brutal Violence, published by mainstream European and International Press, but also several Social Media at the Internet, as well as Turkish Newspapers, clearly attest : See Infra), were often Incited, Led or even replaced by various Islamic Imams (f.ex. using Mosques' Minarets to launch Loud Calls in favour of Erdogan), ostensibly traditionaly dressed Islamists, etc. "At least four Disarmed Soldiers were Lynched" by such Erdogan's Mobsters, who Boast that "the Whole Country Belongs to Us", Shouting "Allahu Akbar !", denounced German Newspaper "Die Welt".

In a latest development in this regard, Egypt has just "Vetoed" a Draft Paper on Turkey at UNO's Security Council in New York, by arguying that it was Unclear whether Erdogan's Government was really "Democratic", or not.


On the Contrary, Extremist Islamic Organisation "Muslim Brotherhood"'s Chief Haniyev appeared to Celebrate Erdogan's "Counter-Coup" (which has Jailed more than 6.000 People already) also with a Big Fat Chocolate and Cream Pie arbouring a "Shelfie" Photo with Erdogan inside... (See PHOTO).

Meanwhile, Curiously, more than 2.745 ...Judges (sic !) were reportedly targeted by Arrest Warrants and have Started to be Detained, immediately after that Strange Military "Coup", in relation to which, more than 6.000 People have already been Arrested, according to Turkish Authorities. In Addition, about 1.600 University Rectors and More than 15.000 Teachers are Ousted. Many Dozens of Journalists started to be reportedly Prosecuted, some 50 more Arrested, about 100 Medias were Blocked and/or Prohibited,  a lot of Press Workers were Striped of their Professional Card, (etc), even without any direct link to that strange "Coup" attempt.

But 8 Officers asked Asylum in neighbouring Greece, while some Groups reportedly still Resisted Arrest around Istanbul and at some Central Mainland Hotspots, added to certain Senior Officers who have Escaped Arrest until now, possibly by fleeing abroad. Meanwhile, Tensions were observed at the Parliament as well as elsewhere, while  Erdogan reportedly Blocked all State Agents' trips Abroad unless they might be authorized.  


London "Times" reports that "14 Army Ships" would have gone "Missing", are Denied by Ankara, But it's Not yet clear where Admiral Veysel Kosele, the Commander of the Turkish Navy, might be Today. According to British Media "Independent.co.uk", those Ships are "Suspected" to be "Heading towards Greece", but another, perhaps even More Interesting Destination in real practice, may be Egypt, (Comp. Supra).

---------------------------
"Fake" ?
-------------------------------


It's a Fact that this entirely Atypical "Coup", or "Attempt", or "Movement", astonishingly Durated, in substance, Less than  ..."6 Hours", as many observers pointed out, Between Friday Evening and Saturday Early Morning (15 to 16 July), too Rapidly "Melting" away OverNight.

 

erdogan_staged_coup_seen_by_famous_brazilian_cartoonist_carlos_latuff_400
 
(Erdogan staged "Coup" -By famous Brazilian Cartoonist Carlos Latuff)


So that various European and International Commentators started to Suspect a kind of Tricky Smokescreen, or "Theater", Cinema "Film", etc., for a "Fake" Coup, which might have been Staged, in Fact, by the Turkish Government's Secret Services, probably Manipulating a few, already known, Dissidents, (f.ex. as several former Tsarist regimes in Russia of the Past notoriously used to do, mainly via some "Provocators" with whom they Systematicaly Infiltrated most Opposition Movements).

erdogan_oscar_film_award..._400_01
 
(Erdogan "Oscar" Fiction Film award...)

To this widely ambiant Impression was also Added an Unprecedented and too Spectacular move by Erdogan himself, (who had just met with "Facebook"s USA Businessman Zuckenberg a Few Days ago !), to suddenly use, for the First Time, a..."FaceLine" tool via Apple's "I-Phone", in order to Launch a First Call to his Supporters, (when the National Radio-TV had been Seized by the Rebels, while Istanbul Airport initialy Refused his Plane's demand to Land), spread Furher also through USA-sponsored "CNN - Turk" TV... (See relevant PHOTOs).

erdogan_speaking_by_iphone_to_tv_400
 
(Erdogan speaking by I-Phone + "FaceLine" to CNN-Turk TV, during "Secular" Coup)

 
The Accumulation of various such obviously Strange, Unusual and Theater-like Events, incited also Press ..."Cartoon" Designers, not only from Europe, but also Overseas, even from Brazil, etc., to Picture the Controversial Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan f.ex. as an ..."OSCAR" Film Prize Winner, or a "FICTION" "FILM ACTOR" in a "FAKE COUP" Play serving to Boost his Popularity, etc, (See PHOTOs)...


Meanwhile, the Stern Warning Revealed by a Long Series of other Photos and/or Videos about reported Lynching and/or Grave ill-treatments Cowardly inflicted by Brutal pro-Erdogan Mobsters against Defenseless, Disarmed Young Conscript Soldiers (usualy Aged 18-22), Added to Growing NewsReports about a still Evolving "Tsunami" of Massive Oppression (Officialy nick-named "Cleansing") against Many Thousands of Political Dissidents, (Comp. Supra), are also often Horrible Facts which canNot be dealt just by Humourists at all (Not even of "Black Humour"), Neither be Hidden from European and International Society, which obviously has to Find adequate Responses, Before it becomes Too Late for its Values.


Already, a Controversial and Unpopular attempt to give a "Visa-Free" status for 80 Millions of Turks to enter into the EU 6 Months Each Year seems Stopped, particularly after that Massive Erdogan's move to Dismiss Thousands of Judges, since among EU Conditions is also an "Independent Judiciary" requirement, observes "Politico" mainstream Media, which finds more likely for the EU to give some More Money to Turkey in exchange of Ankara's acceptance to Drop its Failed EU-bid.


But Facts reveal that the real situation might be even much Worse than than, Now, inside Turkey, and Risking even to be Exported to Europe, since Ankara's Authorities reportedly Ask from their Diaspora to Spy and Denounce various Political Dissidents and/or Critics in EU Countries, (even European Journalists : See f.ex. a Recent Scandal in the Netherlands, etc), while, in addition, various pro- and/or counter-Erdogan Demonstrations are being Scheduled...

New Plan revealed during EU Parliament's session and while Strasbourg's Unified University was inaugurated, (biggest in France, aiming at EU links).

 
EuroDistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau's dynamics were boosted by a key Franco-German meeting during EU Parliament's session here, which anounced a swift towards ambitious European aims : To become a showcase for concrete achievements of European Cooperation that benefit Citizens' everyday life and Economy, while also developing a Culture able to serve and stimulate European Organizations' political activities.

With measures to be taken in 2009, Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict should become EU's new "Metropolitan area" in the Decade 2010-2020, at the heart of Europe in the performant "OberRhein" region, a Franco-German Expert's Report anounced.

- "Defend European Institutions, and in particular EU Parliament" is a key point of the 2009 Report's threefold focus on "Infrastructures"' economy and quality, "Citizens' everyday life", and "Cultural and Political influence".

According to a Draft Statute, France and Germany agree that "an undeniable element of EuroDistrict's image" should be "Strasbourg's status, as Capital of a Democratic and Parliamentarian Europe".

    After parallel and joint meetings at EU Parliament, French and German Ministers for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE and Gunter GLOSER, started working with representatives of Local and Regional Authorities from both sides at Strasbourg's Historic Town Hall, Place Broglie, for the 2009 Monitoring of EuroDistrict "Strasbourg-Ortenau, during which was published an important Experts' Strategic Study with proposals on how to develop it in the Decade 2010-2020.
eurodistrict_speeches_400

    Introducing the 1st Experts' Report on "EuroDistrict" at a moment when it needs "New Ideas" as food for thought, Strasbourg's Mayor, Senator Roland RIES said that "a special Status" should allow "Citizens to share Infrastructures and a common European project", in agreement with his collegue, Mayor of Kehl and German spokesperson for EuroDisctrict, Dr. Gunther PETRY, who focused mainly on the useful role of "Local" authorities in "concrete" achievements.

    - Together with "facilitating Citizens' everyday life", "our countries have also a Political aim", which needs to find "New Forms of Cooperation", said German Minister for EU affairs, Gunter GLOSER. According to a "Subsidiarity principle", which starts from a smaller level, leaving to a bigger entity what it cannot achieve alone, EuroDistict should be the "1st level" in a "Concentric" schema, he added.

    - In fact, "it's a question of Europe's credibility : EuroDistrict must prove that Franco-German cooperation gives results", with "concrete achievements", said the new French Minister for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE. Now, we "must advance further" : There is both "Local and National support" to make of Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "an example on what Europe must do in the Future if it wants to be credible in Citizens' eyes".

    - "Our Mission was to find the region's Potential of the region, "and search adequate Measures to use and develop it"; said German Expert Dr. Erwin VETTER. A main proposal is to "create a New Center for EU Competences", where everything should be concentrated : EuroDistrict, EuroCorps, EuroBest, etc : All in one area, while also linking Airports and other means of Transport, Culture, Education, Science and Research, etc. in order "to create 1 Metropolitan area" before 2020, he anounced.

    - With imagination and organisation "we tried to marry the French and German spirit", added French Expert Bernard COTTIN. He underlined "two points" :  - "In their Everyday Life, Citizens should feel that they are living in One Common Area", (fex. on Phones, Hospitals, Retirement, etc). But EuroDistrict should have also a "Cultural Dimension" : "Strasbourg, had been a little-bit left behind by both countries in the past, but must now find a New dynamic Momentum, at the Heart of Europe, strengthening its Cultural atous and becoming Multi-Cultural, in order to attain a European Dimension and develop the European Institutions", he concluded.

    Symbolically, both Mayors of Strasbourg and Kehl, Ries and Petry, gave to Ministers Gloser and Le Maire as a Gift two Books on Rhine River : Stylicised by both Logos chosen for "EuroDistrict" (as body of a flower), and for Strasbourg's new, Unified University, "UniStra", (as a long "S"), Rhine river came at the focus this week in Strasbourg, headquarters also of the oldest European Organisation : The Committee on Rhine's Navigation.. Meanwhile, Le Maire switched over from German (that he speaks fluently) to French, echoed, the other way round, by Gloser, who also understands French...
---------------------------------
The 2009 REPORT :
---------------------------------
eurodistrict_experts_report_handout_400
 
Experts' proposals for EuroDistrict's Legal status is to start in 2009 with a "European Group for Transborder Cooperation", and "replace it, when possible, .. with an Original Form" of a new legal entity.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Citizens' oriented measures include to facilitate "acces to Health", "Mobile Phones", "Transborder Workers"', "School exchanges", etc., and other measures interesting Citizens, as f.ex. the creation of "Common Hospitals or Rescue centers", etc. Already, an agreement on "Urgent Medical Care" will be signed on February 10.

As "Economic Capital" of one of EU's most performant areas, known as "Ober-Rhein Metropolitan Region" ("superior Rhine" area), Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "should also develop its role of European Cultural and Political Capital, Symbol of Franco-German entente and of a Democratic Europe", Experts' Report concludes.

This goes well beyond developping Bi-linguism, transbrorder Training and "systematic" rapprochment of both Cultures (in Cinema, Theater, Music, etc).

It adds a progressive transfert in EuroDistrict of "elements of the Franco-German Brigade", close to "EuroCorps" Headquarters, and culminates with the promotion of European institutions (see above).

The Report also proposes to launch an "initiative" for "EU Parliament's unique Headquarters", developing Strasbourg's attractiveness vis-a-vis MEPs and staff.

It also includes the development of "a Research and Higher Education pole", among French, German and Swiss partners, "linked with Strabourg's new; Unified University" and "Ortenau's HochSchulen"

It's not a coincidence that this same week was inaugurated Strasbourg's Unified University : - "UniStra" becomes the Biggest in France, (with more than 42.000 students, 5.200 staff, a brand new "European Doctoral College", some 100 Research centers, and a Capital of more than 400 million €  from the State), aiming to create closer links with nearby German and Swiss Universities, fex. Karlsruhe, Fribourg, Stutgard, Bale, etc, as French Minister for Scientific Research and Higher Education, Valerie PECRESSE advised.

(See other, related News, already sent to interested "EuroFora"s subscribers and donors, which will be also posted at the Website asap).

Last but not least :  Non-believers should meditate on the fact that all this was symbolically made in the same Strasbourg Historic Town Hall's room where even the establishement of Council of Europe was decided, 60 years back in 1949...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
