*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- In CoE's prestigious Series of Top Interviews with European Great Thinkers, World famous Philosopher Bernard Henri Levi from France, (BHL), invited by the current Greek Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of Strasbourg's Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Slamed Turkish President Tayip Erdogan for "BlackMailing Europe" on Mass Migrants and Islamist Terrorism, added to attempts to ReMake the Former "Ottoman Empire", while also Killing Syrian a.o. Kurds, Yazidi,  and Other Precious Actors for Peaceful and Democratic Dialogue of Civilisations, (See Infra), in Addition to "HiJacking" Libya, "at Europe's Gates".

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

- "1st" Point : Erdogan "has an Official Agenda, which is Not Hidden : to ReBuild the Ottoman Empire ! It is his Dream"..., BHL Denounced from the outset.


- "Number 2" : "He has a certain Behavior regarding Europe", which "is Based on Blackmail :"

- Blackmail with <<Refugees>> (f.ex. Back on 2015-2016+ when he Notoriously send, withOut any Warning, an UnPrecedented "Tsunami" of 1,5 Millions Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants, Tresspass in Europe, including a lot of Thugs or Crooks, even several Deadly Terrorists, as f.ex. those among the "Bataclan" Paris' Massacre Killers, etc. An Attempt Repeated on 2019 at Evros' River, but Failed, after Greek + EU Reactions), "and Blackmail with (Islamist) Terrorism" :  

- F.ex., inter alia, "Erdogan had some Sentences to German People, which were BorderLine in Threatening with Terrorism, if Chancellor Merkel took some Measures which were UnPleasant to Turkey"...


+ "Number 3 :  ...He has an Obsession vis a vis the Kurds, who are the Allies of the West".

- As well as "one of the embodiments of the EnLighted Islam of Today", "presenting a Chance for the Islam of the Future". "Who represent a Possibility of ReConciliation of Islam with Human Rights, Democracy, Equality between Women and Men, etc".

=> "This possibility which Embody the Kurds, is, precisely, What Erdogan Hates, Tries to Crush, Bombs, Invades, and so on"...

 - Among Many Others, Also, F.ex., "the Way he Acted in Syria, a few Months Ago", (Invading and Killing Peaceful and Democratic Syrian Kurds, who had just Helped Win against ISIS Deadly Islamist Terrorists, cowardly Targeting innocent Civilian People). "The way he Acts Today, in Sinjar", (a Yazidi Homeland at North Iraq), "by the Way, Bombing the Rest of Yazidi People (a Persecuted Minority of Monotheists more Ancient even than the Jews), in the Same Gesture", All "this is absolutely a Sorrow for me", and "a Wound for all those who Love Freedom, and a Disaster for those who Believe in Dialogue of Civilisations", he Denounced.

- "If we Believe that the West, and the Rest of the World, have to Build Bridges and Links of Brotherhood", then, "the Kurdish People is One of those Bridges. And Erdogan is Bombing the Bridge !"

=> "This is the Last of the Reasons for which, for me, he (Erdogan) Belongs to a Clan of Autocrats who are Trying to Undermine the Best of our Civilisation", the European Philosopher concluded.

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

++ Last, but not least, "Europe not only Can, but also Has to Become a Global Power", he stressed in fine.

- Particularly, "in the Current State of the World, where USA is Partly WithDrawing from the Stage", "or, May-be Implicitly thinks that Military Presence is No More Needed everywere, as long as you have, f.ex., GAFA" (Digital Netwoks) "Supremacy, "even if  doN't realy think that it's the case, since Classic ways of active presence Still Remain Important for all, and "the Old Story Continues"..

=> "If the EU is Not Ready to Take its Destiny in its Hands. If France, Germany, Italy", and Other EU Countries, (Including, f.ex. "Greece", etc), "Do Not make some Necessary Sacrifices of Sovereignity, in order to Build a Real Power", then, "it will be a Disaster !" he Warned.

- Indeed, "even Before 1 Generation (25 Years), the World will be Ruled by a Few Foreign Autocrats", (including, particularly, "Radical Islam", Turkey's ReMake of Former "Ottoman Empire", Other "Imperialisms", etc) : "It's a Mess"...

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

+++ On "Libya", he expressed his "Sadness" for its People to "Have to Live Under the Boots of Far-Away Dictators", as Turkey's Erdogan, etc.

- "Libya is at the Gates of Europe",  "It's Our Neighbouring Country, and We should Have Our Word to Say", he added,

Refering, inter alia, also, f.ex., to French "President Macron"'s relevant Statements, "this Morning", (while Meeting with the Tunisian President), expressing his "Concern" for "HiJacking Libya", as he Denounced.

>>> Macron, in fact, reportedly Criticized an even More Blatant, Recently, "Sign of NATO's Cerebral Death", by Delaying to take Sanctions after 3 Turkish WarShips' Provocative Aggressive Threats against a French fregate Trying to Check a Cargo Suspected for Smuggling Weapons into Libya ; Expressed his Understanding for Egyptian President Alsisi's Warning for a Military Intervention If Syrte's "Red Line" was Crossed ; Slamed Turkey for having Violated All the Commitments for Cease-Fire and Peace Negotiations UnderTaken Earlier at the Berlin's Conference (See, f.ex.:...; etc), and Wondered how Long Europe's Security would tolerate Turkey's Massive Imports of Extremist Islamist Armed Gangs from Syria, so Near its Borders...

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

+ Almost in Parallel, "Privacy", in "1 World", (i.e. Globalisation), is More than Important", in this regard too :

- F.ex., "I Really Believe that the Freedom of the Human Being Depends on the Quantity of Privacy that remains in his Hands !" So that, "the More you have Privacy, the More you Think, and the More you are Free"... On the Contrary, "the Least Privacy remains in your Fingers, the Least you Think, and you are Less Free".

=> Indeed, "there is a Real, Mechanical Relationship, between the Quantity of your Secrets, and the Quality of your Thought, and the Quality of your Liberty", he Warned. "It's a Law, inscribed in Human Nature : I Could Prove it, by Ancient Greek Philosophy, by Old Judeo-Christian Wisdom : The More Secrets you Can Retain, the More Free and Powerful you are !", BHL insisted.

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

However, it's no more a "secret" that BHL was Welcomed, at CoE's Series "In Discussion With...", by the current President-in-office of the PanEuropean Organisation, Greek Alt. Minister of Foreign Affairs, former Long-Time MEP and vice-President of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in PACE, Miltiades Varvitsiotis, who stressed that "Europe" wants to "promote a new Vision of the World", including, Nowadays, by Respecting Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, even during Pandemics.

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.

- "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.

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.
