Spain Islamist Terror (linked to France,Germany,UK,Finland,Russia+) Reveals Big Socio-Pol. Problems

Written by ACM
Thursday, 17 August 2017

*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)...  



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) :



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 :


- 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)...



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).


- 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).



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 !...



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 !


++ 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.


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...



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 :


=> 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).




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...



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 !

3 EU Parliament votes to boost EuroGroup !


After EuroZone Paris Summit's succes, Sarkozy calls to "think anew how to re-construct Europe !

"EuroZone and EU Institutional debates pave the way to 2009 discussions on EU Future, including Enlargment, Turkey etc. ?

23 October 2008

After EU Parliament strongly suppported in 3 successive Votes this week in Strasbourg French EU Chairmanship's move to boost Euro-Group at EU's core, while ideas on EU Institutional problems are awaited on December, "it's an open Question now" if this may lead to a debate on EU's Future, or not, told us French President, Nicolas Sarkozy''s Spokesman, Pierre-Jerome Henin.

MEPs voted on Thursday fresh Funds to support EuroGroup, after adopting on Wednesday a Resolution asking a "further Evolution" to "the 1st ever meeting of Heads of State and of Government of the Euro-Zone, taking decisions in that capacity", while earlier this week a Report asked "a stronger Institutional setting" for "EuroGroup", extended from "competitiveness/industry" to "environment, employment and education", with "increased powers for Political decision-making", according to a text drafted by French MEP Francoise Beres and German MEP Werner Langen, "10 Years after the creation of Euro" (1999 - 2009).

- Brussels' subsequent "EU Council ..(simply)..ratified the measures decided by EuroGroup on October 12" in Paris, which "were necessary to contain the current Financial Crisis", Resolution observes, expressing also support to the new process succesfully initiated by Sarkozy and due to be completed by agreements with USA and other countries at a Global level.

From now on, it's between two differend but parallel moves : EU's delay, and EuroZone's acceleration, that Enlargement and particularly Turkey's controversial EU bid, will have to search its way :

Indeed, EU's 27 expect a "Roadmap on how to deal with the Irish problem" on Lisbon Treaty ratification after December, risking to pass even 2009 Elections and next Commission with the old Nice Treaty of 2000, out-dated and unfit even for 2004's Enlargement...

On the contrary, EU's core launches a real "Economic Governance for EuroZone at the highest level of Heads of State/Government" of the 15, which started in Paris on October 12 and was strongly supported this week in Strasbourg by Sarkozy and EU Parliament.
- "It's a good idea, to launch such a debate ("on EU's Future") in EU Parliament in view of 2009 Euro-Election : Perhaps some MEPs will seize an opportunity", told us mainstream French MEP Alain Lamassoure, former EU Minister and EU Spokesman for France's governing party UMP.

- "All MEPs' debates on such EU Councils are also part of the larger debate on Europe's future : Now with EuroZone, and even more when, on December, Irish Prime Minister is due to table proposals in Strasbourg on how to deal with EU Treaty's ratification", replied earlier to our question EU Parliament's Press Director and Spokesman, Jaume Duch.
Sarkozy has formally anounced his intention to open EU Debates on Economy, Identity/Enlargement (i.e. mainly Turkey), etc. both linked to a popular Political view of Europe, since his Historic speeches on EU in Strasbourg, on February and July 2007, when he stressed that "Europe needs a New Renaissance". At the beginning of the French EU Presidency, on July 2008, replying to a MEP, he suggested that EU Parliament takes an active part in Debates on EU's Future.

- Now, in 2008, "Crisis are an opportunity to re-think how to re-construct Europe", Sarkozy stressed. At any case, the Historic 1st EuroZone Summit of Heads of State/Government, which started replying to the Financial crisis,"is a Turning Point : After that, Europe cannot be governed as before, but differently" : People "like a Europe with Strong Will".

- "We must make the System move !", "Europe needs Innovation" and free political debates. EU "Elections are in a few Months", Sarkozy warned.

He invited EU Parliament to fully play its role as "the Democratic Heart of the Europe we want : United, Independent and Voluntarist, because the World needs Europe's voice".

- "It's no more possible for Euro-Zone to continue without an Economic Government" at the Highest Level of Heads of State/Government, who provide "Democratic Legitimity" and can take important decisions, he announced, strongly supported by EU Parliament's Economic Committee which just voted to boost the "Institutional" aspects of "EuroGroup".

Plasticity offered by the current absence of a special Treaty on EuroZone's Institutions "made it easy to adapt the organization of the 1st Summit with imagination, to efficiently meet urgent needs", he observed, on the occasion of Brittish Prime Minister's exceptionnal presence at the greatest part of EuroGroup's Paris Summit.

- "In EuroZone we have the same Bank, the same Money, and, thus, a same duty for Unity" : "By bringing together EuroGroup's 15 members States we suceeded to find a solution and prepare a Giant Plan of 1.800 Billion euros", Sarkozy reminded of Paris' 1st Historic EuroZone's Summit.

Afterwards, Brussels' EU Council followed the move, and USA's Paulson II Plan was inspired from that. "Europe must promote the idea of Global Economy's Refoundation", he stressed.


- "I was frankly astonished when I found, at the EU, a rigid system, where any New Idea was seen from the outset as a sacrilege, while, on the contrary, Europe needs Innovation !", he described.

F.ex. ,"'When we first spoke about the "Union for the Mediterranean", it was misunderstood as something extraordinary.. When later we had the Russia -Georgia crisis, it seemed against EU's custom to act "in the middle of August", instead of staying a passive spectator ! And when, in front of the Financial ciris, we gathered the 1st EuroZone Summit of the "15", some thought of it as a lese-majesté", he denounced.
On Geo-Political Principles :
- But, by moving resolutely, "EU obtained the ...withdrawal of Occupation Troops in 2 Months !", reminded Sarkozy, observing that Russia "fulfilled its commitments", in the Georgian crisis, where a "disroportionate reaction" from Moscow followed a "totally inappropriate action" from Tbilisi's troops. "It would be crazy to reply by military means : EU should not become accomplice of another Cold War, imposed by lack of cool heads".. as he said.

In future, "the creation of a common European Economic Area with EU and Russia, would also obtain a raprochment on our Human Rights and Democratic Values", added Sarkozy, in a statement which should logically be applied, a fortiori, to controversial EU "candidate" Turkey..

Particularly when, the same week that EU Parliament voted 2009 EU Funds for Turkey's controversial EU bid, ECHR took a series of judgements condemning Turkey for grave Violations of Human Rights, such as : Torture, death of a political prisoner in unclear circumstances followed by failure to conduct a proper Investigation, "enforced Disappearance" of a youngster aged 17, Killing of a sepherd with Tank Shells, persecuting Journalists for articles on "Missing" People, even a former President of Human Rights' Association, (etc)

- "We (EU) can defend our ideas on respect of Sovereignity and territorial Integrity, on Human Rights and other differences ... without confrontation", Sarkozy stressed, on the occasion of Russian/Georgian conflict, reminding that : "we were only 2 steps from catastroph", when a Peace agreement brokered in Moscow prevented, at the last minute, Russian troops' advance towards Tbilisi.

An EU Parliament Resolution adopted Wednesday in Strasbourg on the occasion of Russia - Georgia conflict, outlines a set of Principle which apply elsewhere too, (particularly when EU Rapporteur for Russia and Turkey is one and same person ; Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijtanen !)

Clearly rejecting any "military solution to the conflicts", MEPs "condemn ..all those who resorted to force and violence". They denounce a "disproportionate military action", "as well as (an) unilateral decision to recognise the independence" of brekaway regions, "calling.. to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity" of the concerned country, "and the inviolability of its borders recognised by all EU Member States". They warn that "EU must review its policy towards" a 3rd Country, "should .(it)...not comply with its commitments", and "stress that the withdrawal of.... troops from the areas ....is an essential additional step".

EU Parliament "calls for the safe and quick return of refugees, (accepted by Russian President Medvedev) accompanied by the deployment of EU observers on the ground", and "regrets ...that ..EU Monitoring Mission (EUMM) is not allowed to enter the ...breakaway regions". Moreover, "It's important to ensure that persons and NGOs ..engaged in defending human and civil rights can operate". "Until ...all remaining issues (are) resolved..., and notably the continuing ...Military presence", "relations with the EU ..cannot be fully normalised", MEPS warned.

As nobody likes to be accused to practice "Double Standards", this should be regarded as "Principles" applicable to any Third Country at EU's Neighborhood.. No ?


On Economy :

- "When Financial crisis shook US and EU's Banks, without result from the 1st (American) Paulsen plan, it was the common reply of the 1st EuroZone's Summit, involving some 1800 Billion euros, which started a positive move in the markets, soon strengthened by the follow-up of the US Paulson 2 Plan, noted Sarkozy.

- "Europe should not be only on the defensive, but, if necessary, know also how to take an offensive", he said, brushing away hesitationsto act on Economy: - "I'm for a refondation of Capitaliism, but against Speculators, who betray its values" : "Lack of Rules was profitable to speculators, Not to businessmen !" We must make sure to prevent any such crisis in future". "We, the rest of the World, cannot continue to bear the deficits of the 1st World power without saying anything !", the French President said, applauded by EU Parliament. All this needs "a New Global Governance", on which EU Parliament must debate. That's why "we proposed together with USA, several Summits from mid-November", to which G-8, enlarged to China, India a.o. countries, should participate. UNO's SG; Ban Ki Moon, the IMF, etc.

Financial crisis lowered shares' prices even for healthy companies, sometimes to 1/3 of their initial price, so that strangers might buy EU industries for only a portion of their real value, and Europeans may wake up one day with their main industries sold out to foreigners !

That's one of the reasons for which EU should debate about creating "Golden Shares" for States to jointly take Strategic participations to help European Industries until the end of the Crisis, particularly against distording competition, he suggested, pointing at USA's 35 billion $ plan for American Car Industry."We shall struggle for Europe to be able to build Airplanes, Ships, Trains, Cars, because we need a strong Industry", he concluded.

"F.ex. as we did back in 2004, when as Finance Minister, we bought Alsthom's shares for 800.000 euros, and, after restructuring, we sold them for 2 Millions : Help a company and make money is not so bad"...

As for the UK, "when Ireland announced that it would guarantee only Irish Banks, London City emptied from liquidities in 24 hours : It's the EU which helped to restore the situation, Not the UK alone !", reminded Sarkozy to nationalist British MEP Nigel Farage.


On the contrary, in a last-minute attempt for the EU to catch-up with its Institutional delay "before the European Elections" of June 2009, MEPs simply voted a call for a "set of proposals" to be made for the "Irish public opinion" at the end of the year...

- "As long as Lisbon Treaty is not ratified by all 27 EU Member States, there is an unanimous decision to stop Enlargement, reminded Wednesday in Strasbourg the French Minister for EU affairs, Jean-Pierre Jouyet..

Added to an indirect but clear warning that, without Lisbon Treaty, all 27 EU Member Countries may not have a Commissioner in the 2009 resuffle, MEPS in the Constitutional/Foreign affairs Committees applauded hoping that this might motivate their Irish friends..



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 ?
