*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Emeritus Pope Benedict, who, despite his 93 Years of Age, has a Strong Health, probably due also to his notorious Love of Nature on Mountains, optimisticaly Hopes to ReStart using his Pen to Write himself when he will recuperate forces, as he reportedly said after meeting with his Journalist BioGrafer, SeeWald, (whose Name already Means Sea or Lake and Forest !), last WeekEnd, while Facing "a Painful Phase" in a "Not Worrying" Health Issue, "No Hard to Overcome", which Coincided with a Debate and Vote on a Controversial Draft Bill in the French Assembly, seeking to Impose massive Artificial Fabrications of Children by Technocrats on demand by Lesbians, at the Same Time with Genetic Manipulations on Human Embryos Needless of any Authorisation, soon after Gene Editing became Easy with New Technics (CRISPR-Cas9) since 2015+, and Despite a Recent Scandal of Genetic Manip. Heritable by Next Generations, at the End of November 2018, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/faiblevotesurreformebioethiqueenfrance.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/heritablegenemaniptrumpxihumanity.html, etc).

Benedict has Earlier stressed his "Opposition" to "the Production of Humans in Laboratories", as well as to the Controversial and ImPopular "Same Sex Marriage", while Also Strongly Denouncing the Fact that Dissidents who DisAgree with such Changes, are "ExCommunicated", Facing even Attempts to "Silence" them, as he Warned even for himself, on May 2020, on the occasion of a Previous Part of his Biografy, and while the Procedure on the above-mentioned Controversial Reform of the French Law on BioEthics was still on Preparation, after having been initially Postponed by the Virus' Pandemic.

In Fact, the Pope Emeritus, who Governed the 1,4 Billions Strong Catholic Church from 2005 up to 2012, After Working at Top Level Key Positions inside Vatican for Many Years, in his Capacity as a Brillant German Bishop originaly Named Joseph Ratzinger, Writer of Man Books, and Close Collaborator EnTrusted by the World-Famous Previous Pope John Paul II, was Reportedly Astonished mainly by some "Aberant and Ill-Intended Reactions", added to "Malicious Deformation of the Truth", Directed Against him, and "Aiming to Silence My Voice", as he had Reportedly Denounced then, apparently Pointing at least also to some notoriously "Reformist" Bureaucracy at the Top "Admiistration" Even of his Own Country, Germany's, Church, (that he had Surprisingly Dared Call to Mark a "ReVival", by "ReBuilding" anew the Christian Catholic Community, Starting by its Foundations, particularly Thanks to New Popular Movements from the GrassRoots, as he had remarkably said during his Long Official Trip to Germany, as a Fully-Fledged Pope, Already as Early as since 2011, after Berlin and Erfurt, at Nearby Freiburg : See "Eurofora"s PressReports from those Landmark Events, among others, f.ex. also at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lombardibundestagpopespeech.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/kretschmannonpopebundestagcall.html, etc).

Meanwhile, However, his "Personal Friendship with (Present) Pope Francis has Developed" Further, as Benedict has Already said on May this Year (2020), and, Concerning the Nowadays' "Hot" Bio-Ethical Issues Raised by the Above-Mentioned, current Controversial Attempt to Deeply ReVise the Relevant French Legislation, (Comp. Supra), including, Mainly, IVF for Lesbians, Research on Human Embryo Genetics, etc., Francis Stands Also Firm on the Side of Natural Births, and for the Protection of Human Life "Since Conception", therefor Opposing f.ex. for Children to be "Deprived of the Right to have a Father", as the Head of Fench Catholic Church's (Historicaly the Biggest in the Country) Group on BioEthics, ArchiBishop d'Ornella, Recently stressed at a Press Conference in July 2020 on that Bill, Just Before the French National Assmbly reStarts to Debate and Vote on it, Launching also an Invitation to President Macron for a "Real Dialogue", between Citizens and the State, particularly After teh Recent Technological and other Developments (Comp. Supra), as he said in Reply to an "Eurofora" Question, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fornewfulldebateonbioethicsinfrance.html, etc).

According to German Newspaper "Passauer Neue Presse" Today, (citting Benedict's Journalist BioGrafer SeeWald, and a Medical Doctor) But Also Other Informed Sources, it seems that the Pope Emeritus might Suffer, currently, from a Kind of "Skin" Issue, at the "Left Side" of his Face, which could have been, reportedly, Provoked by a "Bacteral Infection", that, according to Medical Encyclopedias, usualy has an Incubation Period of About 4 Days, so that it would, Surprisingly ... Coincide with the Timing of that French Assembly's "Hot" Debates and Votes on this Controversial Reform in BioEthics ! (Comp. Supra).

It's also a Fact, Nevertheless, that, pushing to Impose, for the 1st Time in History, Massive Artificial Fabrications of Children by Technocrats, at the Same Time that Genetic Manipulations on Human Embryos No More Need Any Authorisation, while Gene-Editing has Recently become Easier and Faster than ever, added Even to Heritable Germ-Line Modifications into Future Generations, (Comp. Supra), Strictly Prohibited by CoE's "Oviedo" Convention on Human Rights and Dignity of the Human Person vis a vis Biology and Medical applications, Obviously, provokes Serious Risks putting into Danger the Future of Humanity ! (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/faiblevotesurreformebioethiqueenfrance.html).

But Benedict, when he was led to Retire, Back on March 2013, (a "1st" in History, in fact), had been Warmly Called, Both by "Eurofora" and Many Others, to Find a Way, in Agreement with Pope Francis, to be, at least, Able to Speek on certain Exceptioaly Important Issues (as Core Bio-Ethical matters, on which he had Already Worked Intensively, During a Long Time, etc), Crucial for Humankind. And, Indeed, at an Emotional Last Public Address to the People Gathered at "Castel Gadolfo" to Greet Him, the Pope Emeritus Concluded his Last Words by Acknowledging, (with an Exceptionaly trembling voice), that he "Still Wish(ed), Heartfully, with ...Love..., Prayers, ...Thoughts, (and) All ...inner forces, to Work for the Common Good, for the Good of the Church, and of HUMANITY !" (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lombardionbenedictcontacts.html).

Now, Thanks also to the Surprizingly ...Weak Vote from the Governing Majority on that Controversial and Dangerous for Humankind Bill on BioEthics, Later than MidNight, at ...3 a.m. in Early Morning Last Saturday in the French Assembly, (1.8.2020), where, on the Contrary, the various Dissidents appeared Stronger than Expected, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/faiblevotesurreformebioethiqueenfrance.html), Added to Benedict's Pioneer Initiative, Already since 2011 at a Landmark Speech at the German Bundestag in Brerlin, to Try to Link "Greens"' and Others' Ecology Aspirations, also with the Protection of "Human Nature", (See : ..., etc, almost in the Same Line as "Eurofora"s equivalent Attempts in German "Greens" Party National Annual Congress, as Early as since 2010 at Nearby Freiburg, See ..., etc), which Fits Well Pope Francis' 1st Encyclique on 2014, Notoriously Focused on "Ecology", etc., (Pertinently Reminded by Mgr d'Ornellas at his Recent Press Conference on 7.2020, Comp. Supra), => All these Converging Developments, Older (but Still Valid) and Recent Alike, Clearly Indicate that there are Real and Growing Chances for Benedict, (whose Latest Volume on his Biografy has, reportedly, been Already Booked for Editions in 10 Languages, accross the World), to Hopefully, Join, in one way or another, the Common Fight, in Crucial BioEthical Issues, Both in France nowadays and soon Elsewhere, to SaveGuard Humanity's Future !

Recent developments proved that Europe can suceed to overcome challenges by aiming at great objectives, and this is needed also in 2009, said EU chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    - "It's in the name of Great Ideas, Projects, Ambition and Ideals, that EU can overcome" challenges, stressed Sarkozy at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in conclusion of a dense 7 months EU Chairmanship. "It's even easier for Europe to have Great projects, able to overcome national egoism, instead of limiting itself only to small projects" (unable to do alike), he observed.     

- "Europe must remain Ambitious and understand that the World needs her to take Decisions". "The World needs a Strong Europe", which "thinks on its own, has convictions, its own responses, its imagination" : "A Europe which does not limit itself into following" others, (as it did in the Past, when it followed USA, f.ex. on Bosnia). On the contrary, "Europe should undertake its own responsibilities", he said, after a series of succes in stopping the War between Russia and Georgia, and organizing the 1st EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which incited the Washington DC G-20 Summit to extend similar decisions World-wide.  


    - "When you sweep it all under the carpet, prepare yourself for hard tomorrows", he warned. "What hinders decisions is the lack of Courage and Will, the fading away of Ideals", he stressed before EU Parliament's 2008 debate on Human Rights and Sakharov prize on Freedom of thought attributed by MEPs to Chinese cyber-dissident Hu Jia, followed by an EU - Turkey meeting on Friday.

    - "I don't abandon my convictions" and "I will take initiatives" on EU level also in 2009, Sarkozy announced later. "France will not stop having convictions and taking initiatives" on Europe. + "It's an Error to wish to pass over the Heads of those who are elected in their Countries" : "It's an integrism I always fought against"', he warned.
---------------------
French EU Presidency faced 4 unexpected Crisis :

- An institutional crisis, with the Irish "No" to EU Lisbon Treaty, just before it started. A geopolitical crisis, wth the threat of War between Russia and Georgia risking to throw Europe back to Cold-war divisions, on August. A World-wide Financial and Economic crisis, arriving at a bad moment before crucial 2009 EU elections. And even a Strasbourg's mini-crisis, with EU Parliament's roof curiously falling down, from unknown reasons, in a brand new building on August, provoking an unprecedented transfert of the 2 September Plenary Sessions...

But it wasn't enough to stop Sarkozy ! On the contrary, it stimulated him...
---------------------------------------

- "The better way to deal with the recent problems of EU institutions (as the "3 NO" by France, the Netherlands and Ireland) is to take them as a "Test" in order to find solutions closer to Citizens' concerns", said later in Strasbourg Sarkozy's new choice as Ministe for EU affairs, Bruno Le Maire.

- On the Institutional front, Sarkozy gave Time to the Irish to think about it, and stroke on December a deal including a New Referendum after the June 2009 EU Elections, in exchange of a promise to keep the rule of "one EU Commissioner for each EU Member Country", and some opt-outs on Defence and Fiscal EU policies, Abortion, etc. If the Irish get a "Yes" Majority, then the institutional package could be completed in 2010 or 2011 on the occasion of Croatia's probable EU accession.

He was accused in Strasbourg to upgrade EU Council and downgrade EU Commision, but he replied that "strong Political initiatives by EU Council reinforce also the more technical role of EU Commission, under the political-technical leadership of its President", all 3 "working together with EU Parliament".


- But, meanwhile, Sarkozy energetically spearheaded an Historic 1st Summit of EuroZone's 15 Heads of State and Government at EU's core, exceptionally enlarged to a partial participation of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on October 12 in Paris' Elysee palace, which started to tackle succesfully the growing world Financial crisis.

    It also paved the way for its endorsement by a subsequent Brussels' 27 EU Member States' gathering, before it all come to Washington's G-20 Summit. And "Europe was united, it asked for the 1st G-20 Summit, and it will also organise the next G-20 Summit on April in London", he observed.   

 But a Conference with EU, Russia, African and other Developing Countries, hosted in Strasbourg shortly after Washington G-20 Summit by the French EU Presidency, took a Resolution asking to enlarge participation to Global Economic Governance. Many found, indeed, illogic and unacceptable that f.ex. states as Turkey were given a seat at G-20 level, while all African Countries, and even the African Union itself, representing the greatest Continent on Earth, were excluded...


    Meanwhile, even USA''s "Paulson No 3" Plan, was, in fact, inspired by Europe's No 1 Plan", Sarkozy observed, largelly applauded by MEPs.

    And "Europe showed Solidarity" by mobilizing some 22 Billion credit for Hungary, 1,7 billion for Ukraine, as we do nowadays for Baltic States, etc., he added.

    The move on Economy was extended on December by an EU stimulus' plan totalling some 200 billion Euros, including 5 Billions released by EU Commission for big Projects, as well as various parallel National plans for Economic revival, (fex. 26 billions in France alone). They might appear limited, compared to USA President-elect Obama's reported plan to boost the American economy with 800 billion $, but at least succeded to overcome Europe's divisions for the first time on Economic governance, opening new horizons.

- The French President stressed even harder the unique role of an active EU Council's chairmanship, when he moved swiftly and efficiently, at the beginning of August, to succesfully stop War between Russia and Georgia, at the last minute, which threatened to bring Europe back to Cold War division.

"We (EU) also wanted to avoid a situation like in Bosnia, in the Past, when EU was absent, so that our American friends took their responsibilitues, and EU only followed", despite the fact that the conflict took place in Europe. Now, it was the EU who took its responsibilities".

A roadmap towards a new PanEuropean Security policy, before which all unilateral moves to place new Missiles (from USA or Russia) would be freezed, was proposed by Sarkozy after a meeting with Russian president Medvedev, at the eve of Washington DC's G-20 Summit.

Ukraine's "European" character was stressed at a Sarkozy - Jushenko Summit, September in Paris, while EU adopted on December an "Eastern policy", in which, "I'm convinced that our (EU's) future is to find with our Neighbours the conditions for Economic Development. Peace and Security, by explaining them that.. they must respect (Human Rights') Values, and adopt behaviors different from the Past", explained Sarkozy in Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, the "Union for the Mediterranean" was created, since July's Summit if 45 Heads of State and Government in Paris, as "an organisation for a permanent Dialogue, that we need", mainly in order to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by bringing together, for the 1st time, Israelis and Arabs, where "Europe must be present, in order to avoid a frontal clash".

- "If Europe doesn't take its part for Peace in the Middle-East, nobody else will do that in our place", Sarkozy stressed.
-----------------------
    Meanwhile, other EU Agreements were brokered during the French EU Presidency on Immigration, (fex. common Asylum rules, etc), and Climat- Energy :

    - On Climat-Energy, the 2007 German EU Presidency had fixed a triple 20% aim for 2020 (20% renewable Energies, 20% reduction of CO2 emmission, 20% energy efficience/economies), and the 2008 French EU Presidecny realized that, making the necessary compromises in order to modernize EU's industry, but without throwing some former Central-Eastern European Countries into abrupt Economic break down risking "social explosion".

    - Defence-Security EU policy was mainly postponed for April 2009, since both German chancellor Merkel and French president Sarkozy want to strike a deal with the new American president Obama in Strasbourg's NATO Summit.

    However, with all these 4 unexpected Crisis diverting attention to other urgencies, People wil wonder now, what happened to the famous deal proposed by freshly-elected French President Sarkozy on Turkey's controversial EU bid, back on August 2007, to continue EU - Turkey negotiations, but on the double condition that core chapters, intrinsequally linked with EU Membership, will be excluded, and that a collective Reflexion and Debate on Europe's future would start before the end of 2008.

    It was meant to reply to the crucial question : What kind of Europe do we want in 10 or 20 Years from now : A large Market, or a Political Europe, with a popular identity ? In Sarkozy's thinking, presented in his 2 landmark speeches on Europe in Strasbourg, shortly before and after the 2007 Elections, (on February and July 2007), Turkey's controversial EU bid would be incompatible with the second choice.

    It's true that EU Commision's Chairman, Jose Barroso, (who had notoriously declared, as former Portuguese Prime Minister, that he found "nonsense" the idea that Europe might become equal to the US), had repeatedly tried to avoid that Sarkozy's criticism on Turkey might start winning a larger audience in Europe, preferring a discrete "wismens' committee" work. And that most of the personalities later chosen in order to participate in a Committee on Europe's Future, are too much linked with Socialist parties and/or American policies, to be really critical of USA's notorious wish to impose Turkey to the EU, as Sarkozy had noted himself since March 2007..

     - "It's on EU Council's presidency to take political initiatives. EU Commission has other competences", stressed Sarkozy. The "European Ideal" is to "build Europe with the States, not against them". "Ask Europeans to chose between their countries and Europe won't work. You don't choose between your two parents : We must add them together".

    "France and Germany have an Historic Duty to work together, precisely because of what happened to the Past. We have to work hand by hand. We cannot be separated.It goes beyond me and Mrs Merkel today, Mr Schroeder and Mr. Chirac yesterday. It's not a choice, it's a duty to Europe and to the World".  "We need Germany, as Germany needs Europe". Compromise is inevitable, here as everywhere, and each one made some steps towards eachother's positions.

    But "it's true that Mrs Merkel didn't chose her Socialist partners, while I chose mine", Sarkozy said, in an indirect hint that the Socialist Minister of Finance in Germany might be a cause of minor past disagreements in Economy, which were overcome in recent negotiations.

    "We (France and Germany) have particular duties in Europe", but "in a Europe of 27 Member States, it's not enough for France and Germany to agree between them.

    "I always thought that Great Britain has a special role to play in Europe. ... Now, everybody "saw what it cost payed the UK for having been too exclusively open towards the US (and) Financial services. Europe needs the UK, but also the UK needs Europe" :- "We were able to face the hardest moment of the Financial crisis because the UK clearly chose Europe", stressed Sarkozy, reminding Gordon Brown's exceptional participation to the Historic 1st Heads of State/Government Summit of EuroZone, October 12 in Paris (See EuroFora's Reportage from Elysee Palace then).

     - "Some look at Europe with old glasses aged 30 years ago. While we must look at her in relation to what it will be in 30 years" in the Future, Sarkozy concluded.

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 ?
