Berlin Islamic Terror Massacre=Attempt to OverShadow Russian Ambassador Murder by Turkish Policeman?

*(Investigative, Factual News-Viewpoint).- The Biggest Massacre of innocent Civilian People committed in Germany until now by Islamic Terrorism, which Killed 12 Victims and Wounded about 50 more, (a Dozen in a Life-Threatening situation), at Berlin's Christmas Market, might have been also an Attempt to OverShadow in International Media the unprecedented Murder of Russia's Ambassador in Ankara by a Turkish Policeman, in an Exceptionaly Important Context and Moment, earlier that Same Day.

Inter alia, the astonishing Fact that Berlin's Mass Killer used to Visit (even Before and After that Terrorist Attack) a Turkish Mosque controlled by the Government of Ankara, where the Russian Ambassador was Murdered by a Turkish Policeman, in Addition to that Same Mosque's reputation to serve mainly ..."ISIS" Terrorists' fans (See Infra), obviously adds also a possible Direct Link in real Practice between those 2 Tragic Incidents.



Berlin's Massacre, committed near one of the Biggest Railway Stations in the Capital of Germany, (and for a Long Time in the Past, the No 1), and in front of the Famous, Unique Christian Church kept as it had been Damaged by World War II Air Bombings, close to prestigious Hotels visited also by Foreign Politicians, hadn't, indeed, any obvious Reason in order to be committed in that specific Date, against the Biggest EU Member Country, at all. Apparently, from the point of view of Islamic Terrorism, it could have been done at any other moment, Earlier or Later, there or elsewhere, or even not at all.



Moreover, even some German Establishment's Newspapers' (as f.ex. "Zeit", etc) curious Stance to publish Earlier Front-Page Headlines claiming that ..."Aleppo has Fallen" (sic !), instead of "Aleppo was Liberated" from Islamist Terrorist Gangs, including "Al Queda"'s affiliates, etc., obviously did Not Help at all to be paid back with not even the slightest "sympathy" from Islamist Terrorists, as Facts proved... 



On the Contrary, the Murder of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, (the Only one to be a Shameless Brutal Killing, openly committed in an obviously Provocative way, since the 2 World Wars' period of a remote Past, with the Exception of a probably Covert Killing of another Russian Ambassador in the 1990ies, elsewhere, but again in relation also to Turkey, apparently Disguised in a Strange "Accident"), was obviously Targetted, from Many Points of View.


F.ex. :



- Syria's 2nd Biggest City, Aleppo, was, then, notoriously in the process of being Entirely Liberated from various Armed Gangs of Extremist Islamists, supported by several Foreign States, including Turkey, after a Decisive Offensive of the Syrian Government's Army, helped by Russian aviation, Lebanese and Iranian Chiites volunteers, etc. (The Murderer himself loudly cried several threats against that Important Development, after Cowardly Killing the unarmed Ambassador with a Turkish Policeman's revolver from behind, during a Cultural event).


- That Murder occured just Before 2 Crucial and Unprecedented Political Meetings on Syria's Present and foreseable Future : One at Moscow, between Foreign Ministers, and another scheduled subsequently at Kazakhstan, between representatives of the Syrian Government and Oppositional Groups, on the Total  Evacuation of Aleppo by Militants, etc., towards Idlib and/or Turkey, Exceptionaly Organized only with the Participation of Russia and Iran, to which was added also Turkey, (for the 1st Time Alone, without its usual sponsors on the Syrian Conflict, of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and USA, etc., i.e., comparatively in a Weaker situation than what it was accustomed in the Past).





- Ambassador Andrey Karlov held a Unique Experience on Foreign Interferences in the Bloody Syrian Conflict, particularly around open and/or covert Support to several Islamist Terrorists by Foreign Countries, with Funds and/or Weapons, etc, since he had been appointed to Turkey since 2013, i.e. when ISIL's Beheaders of civilian People had started to gain ground, including the Unprecedented Killings, by Turkish Airplanes and Gunmen, of 2 Russian Pilots Fighting against ISIL's Islamist Terrorists, and the recent Syrian Government Advances for Aleppo's Liberation from various Islamic Extremist Armed Gangs, (including Al Queda's regional offspring, and another ISIL-inspired Group, etc), all of which have their Leaderships hosted inside Turkey, at the other side of the Nearby Borders, (whose notorious Complicity, particularly vis a vis the ISIL, was largely unveiled also after that 2 Killings of Russian Airmen, etc).

+ Moreover, Karlov had personaly also a very Rare Experience of another, particularly "Hot" Global GeoPolitical Issue : that of Korea, after having Served there as a Diplomat for Many Years, (mainly at the North, but also in the South), knowing even the Korean Language, etc).



- The most Scandalous Fact is that he was Shamelessly Murdered in Cold Blood, in front of a lot of People, by a provocative Turkish Policeman, who was supposed to Protect him, abused of his Trust and that of others by pretending to be a Guard, but, on the contrary, shot his Victim with a revolver 9 times behind his back and killing him like a Coward, (while Crying Aloud various Vociferations against the Liberation of Aleppo from Islamist Terrorists, etc). 

An initial Attempt by Turkish Medias to Claim that the Murderer would have merely been a "Gullenist", already Fired and prosecuted by Ankara's Government recently, after that Short-lived, 6 Hours-long, Strange "Coup" Attempt of July 2016, which notoriously served (and is still Exploited for that, also Nowadays) as a Pretect for Massive Persecutions against various kinds of Political Dissidents, rapidly Failed :

- Indeed, that sly Killer was still in Posession of a Professional Card of Turkish Policeman, (that he had shown in order to be allowed to Enter the Room where an Exhibition was due to be Inaugurated by the Russian Ambassador, and even to Stand right Behind him, without having ever been Checked at the Entrance, while equiped with a loaded Revolver.



                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     + In Addition, he had even served at least 8 Times to Protect the Turkish President Erdogan himself during various events recently, After the July 2016 alleged "Coup" Attempt, (as Russian Media Denounced, when "Hurriyet" revealed those uncontested Facts).

Moreover, the Killer even repeatedly ...Posed, provocatively, pointing his Revolver over the Head of his Victim lying Dead at the Ground, in front of the Camera of a Turkish Photographer, Hired by USA Press Agency "AP", at whom he was curiously Looking Straight on his Eyes, (as several Published Photos reveal)...






=> So that, shortly after, even if controversial Turkish President Erdogan and Foreign Minister Cavusoglou persisted on their "Gullen" Story, (as Erdogan had recently done also with his "Coup" Claim, pretending that the 2 Killed Russian Airmen would have fallen Victims of "Putchists" Lobby), at least, the Initial Claim that the Murderer of the Russian Ambassador would have been "Fired" because of "Gullen" links, was later Droped.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim reportedly phoned to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev after the Murder, who Denounced "an Extraordinary situation in International relations", while Yildirim "expressed Condoleances". The Russian Prime Minister also launched a "Call ... to Find and Punish the Organizers behind the Attack", while its Turkish counterpart Limited his Reply only into simply noting that "an Investigation" was just "Starting", promissing to "personally oversee that case". Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglou "Decided to Press on" and Take Part into a Russian - Iranian "Meeting in Moscow" about Syria, confirming that "a Committee" will attend the Enquiry with some Russian representatives, and Claiming that the Turkish Policemen had Murdered the Russian Ambassador "in order to Harm Turkey"'s profitable relations with Russia.



 But, at least for the Time being, there was Nothing to Find from the Murderer himself, an armed Turkish Policeman, since he would have been "Neutralized", (alias Killed), by his Collegues, i.e. other Turkish Policemen. Thus, the Turkish Government limited itself into simply "Arresting" all the Family and the Landowner of that Turkish Policeman's House...

During an astonishingly Long Series of recent Mass Deadly Attacks against Defenseless Civilian People committed in Turkey, (some more recent Attacks Targetting the Army and/or the Police being, comparatively, a Small Minority), Starting by a Massacre of Kurdish Students, Young Boys and Girls, during a Feast just Before their Scheduled Departure for the Syrian Kurdish martyr City of Kobane, in order to Plant Trees and Help Re-Build it, after a Destructive Invasion by ISIL's Islamist Terrorists, closely Followed, since Early Octover 2015, by the Biggest still Mass Massacre of more than 100 Civilians among Political Dissidents (Kurdish, Leftists, etc) Civilians Dancing and Singing for Peace in Ankara, icluding Many Women among the Victims, as well as a Grouped Killing of German Tourists at Istanbul (Constantinople), and/or at the International Section of its Airport, (etc.), Nobody was yet Found, Nor Punished, among the Istingators and Organizers of those cowardly Massacres targetting Civilian People, routinely attributed to Islamic Terrrorists, (despite iSIL's and other Armed Gangs' notorious Links to the Turkish Deep State), Always leaving the Instigators and Organizers UnhPunished.


 + Later-on, Arabic Medias published, according to mainstream Russian Press (widely cited by Many and various Medias from several Countries accross the World), a Revendication of the Ambassador's Murder by a New Islamic Extremist Gang of "Jaish al-Fatah", which has included particularly "Al Nusra"'s Terrorists, i.e. the local affiliates of "All Quaeda".

The News were reportedly published f.ex. by the well-known Egyptian News Website and printed Newspaper "Al-Youm  Al-Sabea", which exists at least since 2008, and is Cited by "Reuters", "Tass", "The Guardian", and other Mainstream Medias, being the Most Visited News-Site in Egypt, according to "Wikipedia", and reportedly named as the Middle East's "Top OnLine Newspaper" twice by the prestigious "Forbes" magazine.

It was, on the contrary, Criticized mainly by Islamist Extremists, particularly related to the "Muslim Brotherhood", whose Leaders live notoriously Exiled in Turkey. 

That Revendication of Andrey Karlov's Murder was a Written Document in Arab Language,  reportedly in the Usual Format of "Jaish Al-Fatah"s Anouncements, which was Re-Published at the Web in Full.


"Al Nusra" had already Launched, since October 2016, clear Calls to Attack "Russian People" in retaliation of Moscow's Help to the Syrian Government, while "Rockets hit the Russian Embassy at Damascus".

Idlib City, at the North of Aleppo, and widely considered as the most Probable Next Target of the Syrian Government - Russia - Iran - Lebanon Coalition, (as Syrian President Assad himself recently Confirmed), is the main Stronghold of Jaish al-Fatah (including mainly Al-Quaeda's local affiliate : "Al Nusra"'s Terrorists). Idlib currently hosts an over-Concentration of about 50.000 Jihadists, and is the Nearest Rebel City close to Turkey, from where Armed Gangs notoriously receive Money, Recruits and/or Weapons from Foreign donors, as USA's main Press Agency "AP" warned just a few Days ago.

All these converging Facts, obviously Belied Erdogan Government's claims that the Murder of the Russian Ambassador in Turkey by a Turkish Policeman, would be only a sly move by Gullen, (a former Ally of the Turkish President, who has afterwards quarelled with him, and stays self-Exiled in the USA).

Erdogan's Newspaper tries to Deny...

However, After that, a Turkish Media, "Daily Sabah", - which exists only Since 2014, is notoriously "Pro-Government" (of Erdogan), and "frequently called a Propaganda outlet for the ... Ruling ... Party (AKP)", as even "Wikipedia" observes - tried to Deny all that : It Claimed that another "Jaish Al-Fatah" Member would have Accused the previously Published "Revendication" to be "a Fake", basing its allegations Only to an obscur "Tweet"... Repeating also Erdogan's claim that the Turkish Policeman who Murdered the Russian Ambassador would have been only a "Gullen" Secret Agent (See Above), that Pro-Government Turkish Media, nevertheless, Failed to find anything more as alleged "Proof", but Only a mere ...2 Days Leave demand, back on July 16-18, i.e. Shortly After that Strange, Short-lived, 6-Hours long "Coup" Attempt of July 15, 2016, (that it pictures in a Web Copy of a relevant Authorisation, Signed at main Kurdish City of Diyarbakir, ...but curiously Hidding its own Date !)...

But that Turkish Newspaper's Claim was Only re-Published, (in a Strange, 100% "Copy and Paste" Total Imitation) by some UnKnown Websites such as "Middle-East eye", an outlet allegedly Registered in the UK, but Hidding any Address and/or Name whatever (not even an Email !), which Claims to have just been Created After 2014 (i.e., by an Astonishing Coincidence : Exactly at the Same Time as that pro-Erdogan's Newspaper "Sabah", and during ISIS' greatest Extension towards Establishing a "Khaliphat" in Syria/Iraq), and "Targets" Middle-East Readers, thanks to a Local Network of "Freelancers" located in the Middle-East. (I.e. Probably Similar f.ex. to that Sly Militant who had notoriously made a Fuss in some Western Establishment's Media, with a Photo of a Sad Child in Islamist Terrorist-Held Eastern Aleppo, but was Found, afterwards, to have also Video-Filmed the Atrocious Be-Heading of anOther, Syrian Child, by a Gang of Islamist Terrorists holding many Aleppo's Civilians as "Human Shields" and "Hostages", according even to UNO's International Agents' recent Denonciations).     

Moreover, as mainstream "Voice of America" (VoA) Media recently observed, "Jaish al-Fatah" is, in Fact, an often Divided Conglomerate of more or less InFighting and Disparate Armed Groups, so that Contradictory Statements among Different Tendencies was a Frequent phenomenon, as far as those vartious Jihadists' Armed Gangs were concerned.


    => The Worst for such Shaky Claims by the current Turkish Government and its Pals, was, However, the Fact that, almost Immediately after the First News broke out on the Murder of the Russian Ambassador by a Turkish Policeman, Many Strong Denonciations of that Odious Crime Started to Arrive from a Fast-Growing Number of Top Political Leaders, Government Officials of Various Countries accross the World, (the New US President-Elect, Don Trump and Germany's Chancellor Angie Merkel included, as well as even the UNO, etc.

    >>> And the available Time was, then, largely Enough for Both TV-News of that Evening, as well as for the Daily Newspapers which would be Published and Circulate from Next Morning, Everywhere accross the Whole World, to be Fully Focused on that Unprecedented Murder of Russia's Ambassdor by a Turkish Policeman in Ankara, naturally making a lot of Publicity to that Horrible Incident, which was obviously Ready to Captivate the most Attention of the World-wide Community, just one Day after...

       This goes even more when one takes into account also Turkey's notoriously Bad Reputation about various Links to Islamist Terrorists, its Controversial Military Invasions inside both Syria and Iraq, as well as its Recently very UnPopular, Negative and Growingly Conflicting Tensions with EU Parliament, even CoE's PanEuropean Organisation, and Europe in general, as well as nearby UN Human Rights' bodies in Geneva, but also at UN New York Headquarters, (particularly about all those Unprecedented Massive Gross Violations of Human Rights by Mass Dismissals of Judges, Teachers, Soldiers, Policemen, Elected MPs and Mayors, Journalists and Medias, Kurds, etc., many Thousands of whom were notoriously Closed to Prison and/or Prosecuted, from various Areas of the Socio-Political landscape, Targetting Dissidents of any kind, in an obviously Excessive Way, (as Recently Condemned by several EU/CoE bodies, including "Venice Commission" of the PanEuropean Strasbourg's Organisation, etc., under Pretext of a Strange, Short-lived, Only 6 Hours-long, Failed "Coup Attempt" on July 2016, but, in Fact, even already Before that.

    Therefore, at least from the point of view of Turkey's Interests, as well as of those Islamist Extremist Armed Gangs (incuding ISIS, Al Queda's local affiliates, etc), which have notoriously used that State as a Corridor for Money, Jihadists and Weapons in Syria and/or Iraq, added to their Sponsors inside Saudi Arabia, Qatar, USA and some other Western Countries, Obviously, it was Urgent to Find a Way to Prevent a Growing Public OutCry against Turkey's controversial Links with Islamic Terrorism, which Could Really Become Threatening for their Shady Interests served through Ankara's UnPopular policies, after that Cold Blood Murder of Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov by a Turkish Policeman in Ankara...



In that Exceptional Context, the Sudden Massacre of 12 Civilian People in Berlin's Christmas Market, which also Wounded some 50 more Victims, undeniably came at a very ...Timely moment, for the above-mentioned purpose, since it Immediately made such a Big Fuss in all Medias accross the World, (both Mainstream and Alternative), that it practically Covered Up what had been previously the "No 1" News of that Day, about the Murder of the Russian Ambassador !

Indeed, the Attack in Berlin broke out about 3,5 Hours After the Murder in Ankara, (i.e. Between, approximately 4.50 p.m. and 8.20 p.m., in Local Paris/Berlin Time, for Each Incident's initial Report at the Media).



The Polish Driver of the Truck, (who was Afterwards found Murdered), hadn't Phoned back to his Company since After 4 p.m., approximately, and on 7h.45m that Truck Drove Away, withOut any Normal Reason, (since its Driver should have taken a Night Rest, then, after having Travelled from Italy to Germany), and after, curiously, Ommitting even to Deliver its Load of Heavy Structural Steel, Contrary to what had been Scheduled. The Distance between that Parking and the Christmas Market on which it Crashed, just a Few Minutes later-on, was rather Short, since those 2 Locations were situated not so far away inside Berlin, but towards the Same Side of the City.

Moreover, according to various Reports, it seems that the Murder of the Russian Ambassador was rather a Prepared and Planified Attack, (probably as also that of Berlin's Massacre, against a Famous Down-Town, Central Location, at one among the most Symbolic "Christmas Markets" of Europe, which had been already Targetted by Islamic Terrorists, as several Police Reports had Warned in various EU Countries many Weeks Earlier), so that the eventualy inter-related Perpetrators had, in Fact, Enough Time to objectively Coordinate, or, at least, Sequence their respective Actions.

In Addition, that unfortunate Polish Driver had reportedly made Previously a Round Trip to Berlin with that Truck, just a Few Days Earlier, and used to Eat in a "Bistro" (from which he send a "Selfie" Photo of himself, to his Family Business Headquartered at Nearby Poland, only a Few Hours before the Massacre, later in the Evening of that Same Day), before Parking and Delivering at apparently a Similar or even the Identical German "Company". It's also a fact that Both the main Suspect from Tunisia and the unfortunate Polish Truck Driver had Various Relations with Italy and Germany, (See Above) so that this could Facilitate things in practice.



+ Even more Important : The main Suspect had been seen, (and even his Photo cought on CCTV), just a few Days Before the Massacre (on December 14 + 15, etc), to repeatedly Visit a Muslim Mosque in Berlin's Moabit District, "at Perleberger street", reportedly Located Near the Truck's Parking, in front of ThyssenKrupp Company, which could be Easily Observed from there...



=> So that, for any Gang which might have Simply Followed the Polish Driver, (and the real Murderer seems to have been "Supported by a Local Shell" of Islamist Extremists, according to Experts cited by mainstream Medias), it would, normaly, be quite Easy to Kidnap him and his Truck, so that the Killer could Throw it, Soon afterwards, against the Nearby Located Christmas Market, which was very easily Accessible from the adjacent Roads and large Avenues, withOut Any Protective Barrier, (as MAPs published in German Medias clearly show).


+ Perhaps, the Most Important :  To that purely "Technical" Feasibility of 2 eventually Coordinated, or, at least, Inter-Related Attacks, during the Lapse of approximatively 3,5 Hours' Time, as Briefly Described Above, are also Added certan Other relevant Facts, of Socio-Political Significance :


First of all, the main Suspect used reportedly to Visit a ...Turkish Mosque in Berlin, (both a few Days Before and even immediately After that Massacre), which belonged to "DITIB", i.e. the "Turkish - Islamic Union for Religious Affairs", which "is a branch of the Presidency of Religious Affairs in Ankara". That is to say "an Arm of the Turkish State",  according to "Wikipedia" 

I.e., Not at all an Independent, Local Religious Community of People who live in the Country which Hosts it, (unlike all Other Religious bodies), but only a Tool Directly Subordinated to a Foreign Government, that of controversial Turkish President Mr. Erdogan ! Indeed, f.ex., "the Imams and the religious teachers are Sent (f.ex. to Germany) from Turkey", which Trains, Selects and Appoints them, controlling everything from Abroad.



=> Thus, if anyone inside Turkey's "Deep State" might, eventualy, want something to be done in Berlin by those who are inside such a "DITIB"'s Turkish Mosque, (as that where used to go the main Suspect of the Massacre, at Berlin's Moatib District), he had just to press a button on his Phone... 

In Addition, that precise Turkish Mosque, (called "Fussilet 33"), which was repeatedly Visited by the main Suspect of Berlin's Massacre, was, Notoriously, well known to be "The Mosque of the ISIS People in Berlin,"  (as many German Medias observed) ! 

So that the Existence of a possible Direct Link between the Berlin Massacre and the Murder of the Russian Ambasador in Turkey's Capital, Ankara, in undeniable in the present case...



++  Moreover, the main Suspect, a Tunisian irregular Migrant, (who came to Northern Germany on the occasion of the 2015-2016 Mass Influx from Turkey, and, even is his Asylum Demand was Rejected and he was Found to be Dangerous, nevertheless, he Scandalously ..."Ping-Ponged" between 2 Socialist-governed Regions, of NRW and Berlin, without being Expulsed, because of purely Bureaucratic reasons !), with a Petty Criminal Background (f.ex. already Condemned in Italy also for Violent acts, known in Germany for Drug deals, etc), had emerged from an Extremist Islamic Personal Context :



Indeed, he reportedly stemmed, according to a Tunisian Expert cited by the German Press, from an Area (Near a Famous, Historic Muslim Stronghold in Tunisia, since the Ottioman Invasion/Occupation times : Kerouin) which is Located close to the Border with Libya, and Known for its particular Links with the Armed Islamist Terrorist Group of "Ansar al-Sharia" :

   That Same Armed Gang which has been Suspected to stand Behind the Unprecedented Brutal Killing of US Ambassador Stevens and other 3 American Servicemen at Benghazi, back on September 11, 2012, immediately After having met with a Turkish Diplomat, (an Incident often said to be Related with alleged illegal Arms Smuggling by Ship towards Syria-located Islamist Terrorists). "Ansar al-Sharia" reportedly had also a Similar Political Agenda as "ISIL"s Deadly Terrorists and atrocious BeHeaders even of innocent Civilian People, (i.e. mainly about Applying by Force a "Sharia Law" in a Trans-National "Islamic State", etc). It has been Cited, by various converging Mainstream Sources, as having even been Linked somehow, Partialy, to the very Creation, Emergence and/or Development of "ISIL" itself, to which, at least, it's Not Opposed, according to an US-Based NGO's 2015 Report on Islamic Armed Groups in Syria/Iraq, (many of whom are usually Funded also by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and/or Turkey). Finaly, it is usualy Located, in Northern Syria, Near to the Turkish Border.

  I.e. close to Aleppo, Idlib, etc, which were notoriously Mentioned, Earlier that Same day, by the Turkish Policeman who Murdered the Russian Ambassador in Ankara...

   => In Brief, to put it in a Nutshell, in Other Words, converging Facts indicate that the main Suspect for this Unprecedented Massacre Targetting Civilians in Berlin, may, eventually, be even Politicaly Related (through Common Islamic Terrorism Links, as cited above) also with that Turkish Policeman who Murdered the Russian Ambassador in Ankara, 3,5 Hours Earlier that Same Day !

     The fact that ISIL later Revendicated the Berlin Massacre, does Not Oppose such a Possible Link. On the Contrary : the Exact Wording Chosen now by ISIL, - f.ex. "a Soldier of the Islamic State", who was "Inspired by the Call to Target the People of those States which are part of the (US-led) International Coalition" supposed to Fight against ISIL, - has been notoriously used in various cases of Individuals who might loosely Gravitate Around ISIL, and/or be Influenced by its Messages, even withOut Being fully-fledged Members, Nor have any Concrete, Immediate and Direct Operational Link to that precise Terrorist Group. And, at any case, Both "Ansar al-Sharia" and "ISIL" are Opposed to any European Action (be it from an EU Country or Russia, etc) to Help an International Fight against Deadly Islamist Terrorism in Syria/Iraq, etc.

    All these astonishing Facts and Logic reasons, clearly indicate that Investigations on these 2 Differend Islamic Terrosist Attacks against the two Biggest European Countries of Germany and Russia, should Better be also Coordinated somehow, in the most Adequate, Simpler and Efficient way - and, at Least, Never Lose Sight of the main Findings in Both these Parallel and almost Synchronous Cases - if Europe and the World really want to have a Chance to Discover all the Truth about what might be Hidden Behind such 2 Unprecedented Deadly Violent Incidents, openly Targetting Defenseless Civilian People the Same Day.

    Unless such Tragic, Horrible Events, at last Stimulate all European and other Well Intentioned People's Firm Will to really Start Taking Together Efficient Action in order to put a Full Stop to such a Deadly Islamist Terrorism cowardly targetting unarmed Civilians, not only in Europe, but also Worldwide, as f.ex. the New US President-Elect, Don Trump, has just Denounced, by slaming these 2 Brutal Incidents as "Attacks against Humanity".

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 ?
