*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Barcelona's Islamist Terror, by Killing 15 and Wounding 130 Civilian People, cowardly Targetted by ISIS' adepts, amidst similar Brutal Attacks in Germany (Hamburg, Wupertal, etc), Finland, Russia, Paris, London, etc, in parallel with an UnPrecedented intensity of Mass Irregular Migrants' Influx in Spain, restarting also in Italy, Greece, etc, and Added to Worrying Factual Findings on Both Areas, Revealed surprisingly Big Socio-Political Issues, which Raise Crucial Questions, that should not be irresponsibly overlooked, when innocent Human Lives, all Europe, and Contemporary Society are at Stake :

- First of all, this Bestial Tragedy didn't only Murder even Kids of just 8 or 12 y.o., but Killed or Wounded also various other Civilian People from Many European and other Countries in the World :  F.ex. 28 Victims from France, 13 from Germany, others from the UK, Italy, Greece, USA, China, Canada, Australia, Egypt, Argentina, etc., including a 10 Months Baby.

+ There are Factual reasons to think that it was, probably, more or less Linked also with several Other European Countries, in addition to Spain, such as France (HQ near French Border, usa of a French Car, Visit to Paris, etc), Belgium (plans to Migrate there, Tickets for Brussels, etc), Switzerland (stay + Radicalisation in Zurich, etc), in Addition to some Neighbouring Arab Countries as Morocco (Origin of most among that Terrorist Gang, etc), Turkey (transit + stay), etc, while it was closely Preceded and/or Followed by Similar Deadly Terrorist Attacks these days in Germany, Finland (Turku : Cowardly Targetting Old Women and Young Girls !), Russia (Surgut), France, Belgium, the UK, etc.

++ Curiously, Spain was also Targetted, juste a few Days Earlier, by an UnPrecedented Intensity of Violent Aggressions by Organized Mass Irregular Migrants, armed with Clubs, Stones, Knives, etc. attacking in Groups of about 700 (sic !) the Spanish resorts in Borderlines at Morocco, followed by an equaly UnPrecedented "Rescue" of some 600 other Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants from Africa at the Spanish Sea-Coasts, several "Dozens" of more Irregular Migrants arriving by Boat in South Spain's Andalusia Region, etc., while Greece was receiving a Total of more than 300 M.A.S./Irregular Migrants from Turkey during the Same 2 or 3 Days, (amidst a Recently Growing Trend of Smugglers' Traffic of Humans through Turkey, Now reaching even Romania, via the Black Sea, etc), and Italy had also to cope with a persisting African influx through Libya, etc.

In Parallel, convergent European Polls, conducted throughout Many EU Member Countries, (including Germany, which is currently Debating on Crucial Parliamentary Elections for September 2017), revealed that the No 1 Topical Issue, which provokes Concerns to Most EU Citizens, is, by Far, that of various Problems related to Recent Massive A.S./Irregular Migration, followed by Terrorism, UnEmployment and/or Inequalities, etc.


Meanwhile, Additional Revelations about Many Brittish (curiously only "White") Children being Systematicaly Raped, Ill-Treated, and Brutaly Exploited by mainly Pakistani-origin, but also Turkish, etc. Gangs of recent Migrant Thugs, operating as Organized Crime during Decades, and Scandalously Covered by "Socialist" (Labour Party) Local/Regional Authorities accross the UK (since the infamous Tony "Bliar"'s Past era), have Shaken up anew all Great Britain, Extended, Now, even at "Hot" Fights around Press Freedom and the way according to which, such Horrible Crimes should be Investigated, clearly Denounced, without being abused or Exploited, but Not also Downplayed, more or less Unacceptably Muzzled, (as some Lobbies' members have practicaly pushed to do, inter alia, also by Gross Personal Attacks against Critical Journalists, even among the most Experienced and Mainstream)...  

 

condemned_pakistani_gang_raping_exploiting_and_abusing_of_white_children_for_15_years_with_scandalous_cover_up_by_socialist_politicians_400 


Therefore, American Medias close to New US President Don Trump's Voters, as, f.ex., "Breitbart" etc., Ironically Criticized the Fact that, by a Bad Coincidence, "Socialist" and Liberal MEPs had reportedly pushed an Expensive Video to be Broadcasted at EU Parliament's Websites, etc., with Claims about alleged numerous "Benefits" from the Controversial and notoriously UnPopular Recent Mass Migration "Tsunami" mainly through Turkey (2015-2016+) etc., ... the "Same Day" (sic !) that a Gang of Islamist Terrorists of Foreign, Non-European Origin (one of them having even, reportedly, Entered the EU among a Recent Wave of Mass Irregular Migrants, as also 2 Paris' Islamist Terrorists back on 2015, etc), were Brutally Attacking to Kill or Wound about 150 Innocent Civilian People in Barcelona (Spain) !


-------------------
Deadly Islamist Terrorism : "Tele-guided" "Lone Wolves" or Organized Crime (even linked with Religious Institutions and/or Elected Politicians) ?
----------------------------


>>> In this Particularly "Hot" and Dense Context, Barcelona's Massacre revealed several UnExpected, Astonishing and Scandalous Facts, which clearly seem to Refute the most Lenient Hypothesis and Versions usualy circulating among various Establishment's circles, which were leaning, until now, towards Diminishing or Minimizing the Gravity of the Islamist Terrorism Problem in Europe and elsewhere in the World, by Claiming that Perpetrators would be Only a Few "Isolated" and/or Mentaly Unstable Individuals, acting Alone and/or, at most, Exclusively under "Remote" Influence of some Anonymous Interlocutors located many Thousands of Kms Far Away, (f.ex. from Raqqa, etc) :

 

jaume_duchs_retweet_just_after_barcelona_terrorist_attack_400


F.ex., while even the Experienced EU Parliament's Press/Communication Director, Jaume Duch, (a Native from Barcelona, who reacted almost Immediately and intensively against that Horrible Massacre), chose to point, in his perssonal Tweeter account, at an Old Article, published by Left/Liberal USA Newspaper "New York Times" before Many Months, which Focused mainly into Claiming that most Islamist Terrorists were only a Few Isolated "Lone Wolfs" Remotely Manipulated exclusively via the Internet by some Anonymous ISIS' members located in Far Away Syria, etc., on the Contrary, the Facts now Discovered in Spain, Revealed a very Different, Scandalous, and much more Dangerous Reality :

 
12_islamist_terrorists_of_catalan_spain_deadly_massacre_gang_led_by_an_imam_hq_near_france_400 


- Instead of reportedly only One (1) Islamist Terrorist, as f.ex. in France's Horrible Mass Massacre by a Heavy Lorry at the City of Nice last Year (July 2016), on the Contrary, this time, in Spain's Catalonia capital City of Barcelona there were at least Twelve (+ 12 !) Islamist Terrorists directly Involved in a Macabre Organized Crime, collectively and methodicaly Prepared, during More than 6 Months, by All of them, and, probably, some other, more or less Accomplices and Links, (on whom Investigations are still going on, f.ex. in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Morocco, etc)...

 

 4_arrested_in_barcelona_islamist_terrorist_attack_400

Meanwhile, most among those 12 Suspects had been Killed (either by Police or at the Explosion : See Infra), leaving just 4 Arrested, from whom 2 were afterwards liberated and placed under House Control. The Driver of the Killer Van, Yunes Abujakob (pictured at an earliar Photo in front of a Turkish kebab shop) was found later-on (UPDATED).

 isis_spain_deadly_terrorist_no_1_yunes_abu_jakub_seen_at_a_turkish_fastfoods_door_400

- By the way, the "Mythos" of alleged "Poor" Individuals, living in "Poor Neighbourhoods", and Facing "Discriminations", etc., who would have been Pushed to Terrorism because of that, does Not fit to the Facts : F.ex., at least one among Barcelona's Deadly Islamist Terrorists was reportedly being Paid ..2.000 € each Month, and had been Radicalized in ... Switzerland ! I.e. Similar Facts also to several Other Islamist Terrorist Attacks Targetting Civilians, as, f.ex., in the USA, at the San Bernandino (California) and Tennessee Massacres, where the Mass Killers had been Welcomed in America, Together with all their Family, given US Nationality, Educated, provided a quite Good Job (f.ex. in Digital Tech., etc), a Car, a Home, allowed to Travel Abroad, Choose any Foreign Wife they want and Bring her in the US, (who got immediately also US Nationality), have a Child, etc., Free to live a Normal Average Life. At the Same Time, it's also a Fact that, Despite an Historic Record-High UnEmployment of Young and Old People, f.ex. in Spain, Greece, etc., even HomeLess People (f.ex. in France, Germany, etc), nevertheless, Nobody saw yet, all these Years, any Impoverished Europeans to Target innocent Civilians for Brutal Killings...


+ More Important Finding : All that Deadly Terrorist Gang in Spain's Catalonia, Cowardly Targetting innocent Civilian People, including even small Children (Comp. Supra, as well as Focusing against Women at the Same Time in Finland), was reportedly Radicalized, Organized and Led by a ..."Religious" Muslim Imam preaching at a Mosque near the Spanish-French Borders, (and even Aiming to Establish himself at another Mosque in Belgium !), who was killed in a huge Accidental Explosion aside more than 100 Canisters with Explosive Substances, that his Gang was Preparing at a Collective Hide-out Near Barcelona : Even a Handwritten Message by himself, found there, in which he cruely Announces the forthcoming Massive Massacres cowardly Targetting Civilian People in Europe, reveals his Sordid Aims, as Chief of a Gang of Youngsters under his Influence, and almost All Residents at the City where his Mosque was located (Ripoll).

 

imam_ringleader_of_deadly_islamist_terrorists_gang_400


To the point that, if his Deadly Gang had Succeeded to cowardly Massacrate Civilian People in Spain, then, it's Horrible to thinks that such a Criminal might have been soon Preaching at a Mosque to Muslim Communities located Near EU's Headquarters in Brussels !...

 

ripoll_mosque_whose_imam_was_ringleader_of_islamist_terrorist_gang_400


A Fortiori, since it was also Revealed that this Brutal Terrorist - Imam (Abdelbaki es Satty), had already been Free to Establish himself as Chief of a Muslim Mosque in Catalonia, even after having, previously, been Condemned by the Spanish Courts for ... Drug Trafficking, and served in Prison a 2 Years sentence among other Ordinary Criminals !

 
charlie_hebdo_frontpage_after_barcelona_massacre_400 


++ Most Scandalous : Mainstream Spanish Press Revealed that even the Spiritual Father, or Religious Educator to Islam, who had probably Radicalized that Extremist Imam in the Past, was another Mosque Manager,  a Butcher established at a Barcelona's suburb (Vilanova i la Geltrú), Mohammed Mrabet, who had been already ... "Arrested on 2006 and Condemned on 2009 to 7 Years in Prison for being Involved in a Terrorist Organisation" !


=> In other Words, it's Already During more than a whole ...Decade (2007-2017) that the competent Public Authorities knew that Today's Deadly Terrorist Imam of Ripoll had been Trained, Educated and Influenced by another, previously Radicalized Imam in Barcelona, that Spanish Police and Judges had earlier found as a Key Suspect for Islamist Terrorism...


Particularly to "incite Young People to practice Jihad in Syria and Iraq" and to "create an area of Ideological Indoctrination around the Mosque". Inter alia, the Spanish Police had reportedly Found at his Home various "Manuals of Jihadism", "Texts Exaltating Terrorists", and "Recordings Glorifying Attacks", (etc).


But, on 2011, this Indoctrinator of the Imam of Ripoll (found Today Dead by an accidental Explosion of the Bombs that he had prepared : Comp. Supra), had been, finaly, Liberated, after anOther Court pointed at some Procedural Irregularities of a Hastily made Prosecution, (f.ex. : Phone Tape Recording without prior Authorisation by a Judge, Confessions allegedly taken "under Pressure", etc). This was Part of a Wider Police Anti-Terrorism Operation, concerning a Ring of 20 Suspects, 9 of whom were Found Guilty and Condemned Definitively.


The Lawyer of that Radicalized Barcelona Mosque Manager, Butcher Shop Owner Mohamed Mabret, who had Indoctrinated the Deadly Terrorist Imam of Ripoll (Comp. Supra), was Voted and Elected, only 4 Years Later, on 2015, as Deputy Mayor of Barcelona City : It's Jaume Asens, "close to Mayor Ada Colau", according to the mainstream Spanish Newspaper "ABC", etc.

jaume_asens__catalan_politician_who_liberated_a_terrorism_suspect__4_years_later_was_elected_dep._mayor


A Troubling Fact is also that this Local Politician, together with another Lawyer, (Meanwhile Elected, him too, as an MP of the Catalonia Region just a Few Years after serving such Islamist Extremists), Benet Salellas, who had also Defended anOther Released Suspect in that affair of Islamist Terrorism, are Both Members of an Atypical Leftist Party "CUP", whose Controversial Political Program asks to Give a Right to Vote and be Voted to All Non-European Migrants simply Residing in Catalonia...

 

 mp_benet_salellas__cup


And one among the bigger Muslim Lobbies in Catalonia, Headquartered and Focused at Barcelona, had clearly Asked to Support those Parties which would "Respect all Muslims" and give them all (i.e. even mere Newcomer Foreigners, from Non-European Countries) a "Right to Vote" in the Elections, as its texts said.


Meanwhile, the Number of Muslim Migrants in Catalonia had very Rapidly ... Exploded, Growing from 30.000 up to 700.000 in just Ten Years, Becoming, in certain Catalan Municipalities, Bigger than 20 % of the Local Population (!), as Spain's Biggest Newspaper "El Pais" (Center-Left) had Warned, already on 2015, (i.e. precisely when the Latest Local Elections took place).


The most Alarming Fact is that, in Addition, among 98 Dangerous Mosques found, throughout All Spain, to Spread "the Most Radical" views of Islam, including "Salafism", etc., at least 50 were in Catalonia, (i.e. "More than the Half") !... They were among 216 Muslim Mosques in Catalonia, all in all, and 1.264 Mosques throughout Spain.


Since it has Recently been Denounced, even by traditional Muslim Arab Countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, etc., as well as by the New US President Don Trump, that some Foreign Muslim States as f.ex. Qatar, (courted by Turkey, notoriously Suspected to have Supported ISIS' Deadly Terrorism's growth around the Turkish Borders to Syria and Iraq for Years), are reportedly Spreading Radical Islamist Propaganda, (f.ex. by Funding Controversial Mosques inside sensitive Populations in European Cities' suburbs, etc) and even Violent Islamist Terrorism, it's obvious that those New concrete Findings at Barcelona Now, are very Worrying.


Today, such Deadly Islamist Terrorism personal Links between certain Mosques recently imported and established inside Europe, (as it was Revealed f.ex., in the Present Mass Massacre Casse at Barcelona and Ripoll : Comp. Supra, but also in several Other Horrible Massacres of Civilian People, f.ex. in Berlin's "Christmas Market" last Winter, etc), involving Wider than Expected Numbers of Muslim Local Residents of Foreign Non-European Origin, (as it was Revealed in this Barcelona Attack, thanks only to an Accidental Explosion of Bombs prepared by at least 12 Islamist Terrorists there, who, Otherwise, Risked to "vanish" withOut being Noticed : Comp. Supra), appears Obviously very Dangerous, particularly when it's Linked even with Personal ties to some Local/Regional/National Politicians who might have an Interest to Exploit a Clientelism vis a vis some Controversial Foreign Muslim Lobbies, able to Influence the Fight against Organized Crime, even Anti-Terrorist Operations' concrete results, and Key Political Issues of European Democratic Institutions, as, f.ex., in the cases cited above.


=> Thus, f.ex., it has Recently been Proven, beyond any doubt, that Many Local/Regional Authorities of the "Socialist" (Labour) Party in the UK had Scandalously Closed their Eyes and Covered up even the most Hideous Organized Crime Networks, Brutaly ans Systematicaly Raping, Bullying, Threatening, Exploiting and Degrading a great Number of Poor Children in the UK (Comp. Supra).


+ Mutatis - mutandis, also in Germany's Northern Rhine - Westfalia (NRW) Region ("Länder"), the Local "Socialist" Authorities have notoriously been Strongly Criticized recently for Grossly Failing to Protect (and even allegedly Covering up or Minimizing the Aggressions against) more than a Thousand of  poor Young Girls and Women at Koeln/Cologne, (depending from Pubic Transport to surrounding Villages, which had been Blocked, Trapping and Exposing them to Aggressions overNight), who were Brutaly Attacked and Sexually Abused by Gangs of Violent Thugs among those Mass "Asylum Seekers"/Irregular Migrants suddenly thrown inside Europe by Turkish a.o. Smugglers since 2015, (See, f.ex., CoE's relevant Pubiic Debate in Strasbourg on 2016 at "Eurofora"s NewsReports, such as : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforenquiryandjusticeonmobviolentattacksagainstwomen.html , etc).

 ---------------------------------

++ Now, even in the Present Horrible Massacre of innocent Civilian People from many European (f.ex. Germany, France, the UK, etc) and Other Countries in the World at Barcelona, Spanish Police sources, cited by Mainstream Newspapers (f.ex. "ABC", etc), Denounced the Fact that some inside the Local/Regional Authorities in Catalonia's capital, (notoriously dominated by "pro-Autonomy" Center and mainly Leftist Politicians), had reportedly ... Hindered the National Police and other competent Spanish Security Forces, (Ready and Willing to Immediately Act on the Spot), even from Approaching and Investigating the Area where 2 Big Explosions had taken place, shortly Before the Islamist Terrorist Attack with a Van and Knives against Civilian People at Barcelona :

house_ruined_by_barcelona_explosion_wider_view_400


=> That strange Obstruction had Resulted in a FALSE initial Appraisal of the Situation by the Local/Municipal Police of Barcelona, who had Curiously Anounced, at First, that it was Only a Banal "Gas" flow Accident, withOut any Relation to Islamist Terrorism ! It was only Many Hours Later, when more than ... 100 Canisters full of Explosive Substances were subsequently Found in that same location, that an Alert was, Finaly, given about something Fishy going on, with probable Deadly Terrorist implications. But, Meanwhile, such a Gross Blunder, gave to ISIS' Brutal Terrorists enough Time to prepare, run and Attack, with a Van and Knives many innocent Civilian People at Barcelona's Touristic Center, Killing 15 and Wounding more than 130 (Comp. Supra).

 

 barcelona_terrorist_attack_events__map_400

 

Something which May have been Prevented, if the experienced and well equiped Spanish Police and Security Forces had been Allowed, by pro-Autonomy Local Politicians, to simply Enter and Investigate the area of that Earlier Explosions, which had Revealed the existence of a numerous Islamist Terrorist Group Ready to Attack the City, mainstream Spanish Newspapers denounced...

 

house_ruined_by_barcelona_explosion_400


Even more Worrying, relevant Fact : What was Delayed, and/or Risked to be Ignored, by that Strange Obstruction, was, inevitably,  also the most Important Finding, inside that Location where had taken place an Accidental Explosion of some among the many prepared by a Gang of Islamist Terrorists (Comp. Supra), obviously were the remains (and a Hand-Written Letter Announcing a Massacre) belonging to its Ring-Leader, that Extremist Imam of Ripoll City's Mosque, whose identity Revealed (for the 1st Time so openly inside Europe) the Existence of Links between various Radicalized Mosques and Imams (f.ex. in Barcelona, Ripoll, Belgium, etc), including also with Politicians who had Recently benefited from a "Push" by a Part of the Local Population in order to be Elected at the Head of Barcelona's Municipality, or as MPs, etc., of an extremely Pro-Muslim Lobby Party (See a series of Facts cited Above).

>>> All these alarming Recent Facts, in Spain, the UK, Germany, etc., seem to clearly Warn that Something much More Dangerous -  than only some alleged "isolated" "Lone Wolfs", merely "Tele-Guided" from just a Few Accomplices located Exclusively in some Far Away Foreign Countries, (Comp. Supra) - Threatens European Citizens and Society Today.

 

It would be Blatantly Irresponsible to Hide this !

Former "Green-Red" German government's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's job at the controversial Turkish pipeline "Nabucco" was denounced as "not proper", "very bad", and "incompatible with Democracy", by the new President of EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group, German Lothar Bisky, replying to an "EuroFora" question.

For once, criticism of Joschka Fischer's doings with Turkey affecting Europe, didn't come only from the Center-Right of the political spectrum, but even from his Left side : The experienced Bisky, who has been chairing all over 1993-2009 the PDS - Die Linke party :  

- "Former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer got involved in dealings with oil-gaz business in a foreign country, Turkey, and its controversial Nabucco pipeline. This raises questions about Democracy, also because of the well known problems of Human Rights violations in that country. Do you thing that this might be abused in order to cover up and close EU's eyes on Human Rights violations ?", "EuroFora" asked Bisky.

imag0025_400_01

- "Nabucco pipeline is (only) at the planning stage". And "there are some difficulties",  he observed from the start. But "'I don't want to get into the details of Nabucco pipeline, because I don't think that there is any point for it at the moment".
 
At any case,  "we  (EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group) strongly believe that Politicians should not get involved in the Energy Business, and all these commercial transactions", President Bisky declared on the Joschka Fiischer's affair.

- "We feel that it's something that shouldn't be done. It's not proper !"           

- "We don't think that it's compatible with Democracy either, and it gets politics into a very Bad track", Bisky went on to denounce.
                                                                                                                                                                        
- "EuroLeft  and "Die Linke" always spoke against that, saying that politicians should not get directly into the arms of private enterprises"

- "It is pretty bad if a former Minister takes a job f.ex. in a major Energy producer. So, it's an issue if a Minister who may have seen excellent opportunities, subsequently gets personally grasp of them, in very serious parts of the economy, once he has given up his (Government) job."

- "It doesn't really make politics in general look any better'", Bisky concluded.

imag0935_400

Earlier, this week in Strasbourg, other Journalists had also raised critical questions on former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's involvement in the conroversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline to the President of his own EuroParty : Kohn-Bendit of the "Greens", who, contrary to Bisky, tried to find excuses for Fischer, while criticizing his long-time partner, Schroeder for having done a similar move :

- "Shroeder was chancellor", and he "negociated" with "Russians", who gave him a job only "3 Months" after he resigned from the Government. While "Joschka Fischer", on the contrary, got a job with the controversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline only "4 Years after" he left the Government. "He didn't negociate Nabucco", so I have "no objection", Kohn Bendit claimed.

But, many Facts indicate the contrary :

Joschka Fischer was Foreign Minister in Germany from 1999 up to 2005 : I.e. from the year that EU took the controversial decision to give Turkey a "Candidate" status, until he year it started controversial "accession negotiations, (later declared "open-ended" after Sarkozy-Merkel's arrival from 2005-2007).

During that period was prepared the controversial so-called "Annan" Plan (in fact, drafted by others and attributed afterwards to the former UN SG) on Cyprus, which failed after a Popular Referendum said "No" on 2004 with a large Majoriy of 3/4 : 75%. Mainly because it was criticized for making too much concessions to the Turkish side :  Particularly by restricting Greek Cypriot Refugees' Human Right to return to their ancestral Land and/or get restitution of their Familiy Homes and private properties, usurpated by Ankara's Army since the 1974 militay invasion and continuing occupation of the northern part of Cyprus. And by weakening the Central Government, leaving to 2 "constituent States" so much powers and separate interests that more conflicts appeared inevitable, provoking the danger of a break-down in the foreseable future, with more crisis, troubles, perhaps bloodshed, etc., instead of creating an harmoniously integrated, really one federal State.

The controversial Plan was finalized on March-April 2004 at Burgenstock (Switzerland), curiously in the presence of an Envoy by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, then governed by Joschka Fischer, but in the absence of a French and not even an European Union's Envoy, contrary to what was usually practiced on similar occasions in Switzerland (fex. in 1997 at Montreux, in 2000 at Geneva, etc).

Turkey notoriously exploited the failure of the "Annan" Plan in order to convince the EU to decide to start accession Negotiations on December 2004. This provoked an unprecedented series of Institutional Crisis inside the EU, shortly afterwards, when French and Dutch People rejected, 2 popular EuroReferenda by a majority "'No" vote to the EU Constitutional Treaty on 2005, aggraveted in 2004 a Majority Abstention to EU Elections, etc., followed by the recent Irish "No", etc.

"Nabucco" Gas pipeline was notoriously planned since ..2002. It follows an even earlier idea, for an Oil pipeline Baku-Ceyhun, which started to be prepared on 1999-2001 and was meanwhile recently completed.  

So, facts indicate that what is now at stake is based on decisions made during Joschka Fischer's term as former Foreign Minister, closely interested in Turkey's controversial EU-bid.

To the point that he now practically ...switched jobs with a poliician from Turkey, (the State which pays today openly Joschka Fischer), Mr. Ozdemir, who came earlier in Germany, got fast the nationality, and became EiuroMP in a few years, continuing now as head of the "Greens" in Germany, i.e. in Joschka's former job !...

Such astonishing facts risk, unfotunately, to give to German politician Lothar Bisky's criticism of  representative Democracy a topical meaning :

 - "We (EuroLeft Group) think that what is really at stake is Democracy. It's not only about Gas Pipelines or Energy sources", President Lothar Bisky went on to add in his reply to "EuroFora"'s question on Joscka Fischer's personal interests in the controversial Turkish "Nabuco" pipeline.

Such facts, "make People get more distance from Politics. ...People had had enough, and they are fed up !".

- "That's why we (EuroParliament's "EuroLeft" Group) want to strengthen Direct Democracy in Europe. Citizens should be involved in the (EU) Decision-making. In the end of the day, it's not going to help anyone if Politicians are always taking decisions, without involving Citizens. We want to give a voice to the People of Europe. They've got to have their say in the decisions that are taken. That's one of our absolutely fixed and steadfast views. We want more Direct Democracy in Europe. That's how it can become more effective and stronger", he concluded.
