*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Turkey's Push for Bloody Conflict at the Caucasus was clearly "Condemned" by the PanEuropean, 47 Member Countries-strong CoE Assembly's (PACE) Rapporteur on the Armenian-Azeri Bloody Conflict, Mickael Jensen from Denmark (Liberal), and President of its powerful "Monitoring" Committee on States' Obligations, speaking at PACE's Plenary in Strasbourg.

+ Moreover, in the Debate which followed on the Current Situation in that Conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Many MEPs from Various Political Horizons and Countries, Strongly Denounced also Turkey's Recent Export of Extremist Islamist "Jihadist" Armed Gangs from Syria, inside the European Continent, Warning about Risks to Spread, Later-on, Wider throughout Europe's External Borders, from the Caucasus to the Mediterranea, (See Infra).

 

- "First of all, I Remind that it's an Obligation, for All 47 (PanEuropean) CoE's Member States, whenever they have a Dispute among them, to Solve it with Peaceful Means, and Not by an Armed Conflict", stressed from the outset, as a matter of General Principle, PACE's Monitoring Committee's President, Danish MEP Michael Jensen (Liberal), while Introducing the Debate with a Report on the current Bloody Conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, with the Blatant Incitment and Even Interference of Turkey. Otherwise, such situations "Might Further DeStabilize the Continent, and Lead to New Violences" in that case, he Warned.

- The Mainstream Top MEP "Congratulated Russia" for its Positive Role in Obtaining a "Cease Fire" Agreement, Last Friday, But, "Regretfully" observed that, in real Practice, Later-on, this was "Not fully Respected". Until Now, More than "57 Civilian People had been Killed", and "Civilian Areas Targetted", Even "an Historic Christian Cathedral was Targetted", Contrary to the Commitment of Both directly concerned Countries to Respect Cultural Heritage in times of conflict), and "Heavy Artilery" was used against Civilians, while, moreover, "several Journalists have been injured".

+ President Jensen Also recalled that "All CoE's Member States, Not Only those Directly Involved, Must Refrain from Any use of Force, and Abstain from Any Action that Incites Other (CoE's) Member States to resort to Violence, and Not Aid or Abeit, in any way, the use of Force by the Belligerants, or Any Other Manner to Resolve Conflicts But with Peaceful Means", he Added.

 

=> "In this Context, I Have to clearly Condemn the Fact that the Turkish Authorities, which have a great Influence on the Azerbaijan Government, were Not Using that to Calm things down and Return Back to the Negotiation Table. But, on the Contrary, they (Ankara) were Openly Encouraging, and reportedly Abetting Militarily the Azerbaijani to Continue the Armed Hostilities", pointed out CoE's Rapporteur.

+ Already, Since October 6, PACE's powerful Monitoring Committee, chaired by Jensen, had "Deplored Inflammatory rhetoric by Turkey, as well as reported direct Involvement in the conflict, and Called upon it to Cease doing so immediately".

Turkey reportedly is the Only CoE's Member which did Not yet call for a Peaceful Resolution of that Conflict, Starting with an Immediate Cease-Fire.

>>> Inter alia, this Turkish stance is Also "Contrary to the UN Security Council's 884 Resolutions which have Asked All States in the area to Refrain from Any Hostile act or Interference that could Widen the Conflict and Undermine Security in the Region", Jensen added Now, Speaking at PACE's Plenary.

Moreover, even "the ECHR has asked all those involved, Including Turkey, to Refrain from Any Action that would Infringe Human Rights of Civilians", while, "the French and the Russians made Mention of direct Turkish Involvemet in the Conflict", CoE's Rapporteur Concluded.

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

+ In PACE's Public Debate which Followed, (See: ..., etc), Many MEPs particularly Slamed Ankara's notorious Massive Export of Foreign Armed Jihadists from Syria and Libya to the Caucasus, on this occasion, Warning of Serious, Wider Risks in the Future.

Turkey, After Surrounding Europe with Extremist Islamist Jihadist Armed Gangs, from Neighbouring Syria (Facing EU Members Cyprus + Greece) since 2018-2020, up to Libya (Facing EU Members Italy + France) on 2020, Following the Transfert, by Turkish Smugglers, of Deadly ISIS' Terrorists in Bataklan's Massacre in Paris on 2015, Berlin's Christmas Market Killings of 2016, nearby Freiburg Rape and Murder also on 2016, and Many Others, has, Now, on 2020, Started Even to Notoriously Export to Armenia/Nagorno Karabach several Thousands More of such Foreign, Non European Jihadist Gunmen, massively Invading Our Continent for the 1st Time in the Modern Era :

- These Facts, Obviously Dangerous for Europe's foreseabla Future, (since Turkey's such Next Steps might be at EU's External Borders in Greece, Italy or France, etc.: Comp. Supra), were Strongly Denounced by Many and Various MEPs at CoE's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly PACE), during a "Current News" Debate, on Monday Afternoon, October 12, in Strasbourg,

+ and almost Immediately Followed by News, from Nearby Caucasus' Area of Russia, that an Armed Gang of such  Jihadists from Syria had just Attacked the Region of Chechnya, Killing several People, Before being subdued by the Security Forces...

=> What Will be Turkey's Next Step in this Growing Morbid Saga against Europe ? And, will EU Start to Efficiently ReAct, Before it becomes Too Late ?

    An "Eugenic" loophole Amendment, which might expose to Dangers reminiscent of "3rd Reich's" notorious Genetic Abuses, hidden at the last minute inside an otherwise Good, larger Health policy Package scheduled to be voted on Thursday, was strongly denounced by a coalition of MEPs from various Political Groups and Countries, in a Press Conference held this afternoon at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    Mainly calling to "Select Human Embryos", via "Genetic Counselling" and "pre-implantation" Techniques including "Genetic Tests", in order to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", it might open ways to Dangerous Practices in Future, they denounced in substance.

    But they also made it clear that a much larger Report inside which this Controversial Amendment "No 15" was added in dubious circumstances, officialy destinated to struggle against "Rare Diseases", and drafted by Professor Antonios Trakatellis, was otherwise "an Excellent Report", aiming at a "completely Uncontroversial target" of Health policy on which "all MEPs and Experts are united, believing that Europe should act" to protect People's Health (See "EuroFora"'s earlier News).

    The controversy came at a particularly delicate moment for the EU in relation to Citizens, at the eve of June 2009 EU Elections, and shortly before Ireland re-votes for "Lisbon Treaty"..    

- Denouncing risks of "an Eugenic demand, very similar to what we had during the 3rd Reich in Germany, but now coming from some Scientisists themselves", German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Dr. Peter Liese stressed that critical MEPs were against "Eugenic" engineering with "Selection of Human Embryos", and anything which might ultimately lead up to to a "Selection of Human Race". It doesn't help to "eradicate" Human Lives, he added.


    Several Experts and NGOs expressed "Deep Concern", as f;ex. DR M.C. Cornel of the "European Society of Human Genetics", which stressed, on this occasion, that "the importance of Non-Directiveness in Reproductive issues is a Central characteristic of Human Genetics, after the Atrocities committed in the name of Genetics in the first half or the 20th Century".

     - "This is completely Unacceptable", stressed Italian Liberal MEP Vittorio Prodi, on the Controversial Amendment, also because pushes to "eliminate early Human Life", as he noted.

     - "This opens a Dangerous Road, rather a Motorway", denounced Danish MEP Mrs Margrette Auken, from the "Greens", observing that various similar attempts were made in the Past "not only in Germany, but also in several other Countries, "even at the 1970ies", "f.ex. on forced Sterilisation of Roma" People, and other criticisable situations f.ex. in the UK, in Sweden, etc. as she said.

    + Other NGOs, as f.ex. "LebenHilfe" from Berlin, added that, among various other Risks, could also be that, by exploiting the pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostics and the Selection of "healthy" Embryos, some may "propagate" several "Eugenic" aims, starting f.ex. by pushing to eradicate Human Livies which might "Cost too much" to preserve, ultimately exposing to dangers reminiscent of the "3rd Reich"'s atrocious abuses.

    In consequence, ChristianDemocrats/EPP and "Green" MEPs "decided by Majority to vote against" this Controversial Amendment, anounced to Journalists the 5 MEPs who participated in the Press Conference, representing a wide spectrum, from Liberals to "Greens" and ChristianDemocrats, and from Hungary, Italy, Germany and Danemark up to Ireland (Gay Mitchell), etc.
----------------------------------
    Hungarian ChristianDemocrat MEP Laszlo Surjan said "that it was "Suddenly, at the End of the Procedure" in Committee, that "appeared this (Controversial) Amendment, which has nothing to do" with the main purpose of the Report, on which all agreed.

    He denounced an "Unhonest" move, and called to "avoid this kind of unacceptable situations". Nobody should "Select People", Surjan stressed.

    - "We (MEPs) had No Chance to Discuss" this last-minute Amendment earlier added at a Committee's level, said German MEP Peter Liese

    Speaking to "EuroFora", Dr. Liese, the Spokesman of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in EU Parliament, said that MEPs didn't oppose other references of the Report f.ex. on "Genetic Tests", because they were "no proposals" to impose them, while, on the contrary, there was "a Problem" if anyone attempted to "impose" f.ex. this or that Genetic Technique and "Genetic Counselling", etc. to the People on human reproduction.
-------------
The precise Text :
-----------------
    Controversial parts of Amendment No 15 ask mainly "to lead finally to the Eradication" of "Hereditary" "rare diseases", "through Genetic Counselling .., and ..pre-Implantation Selection of healthy Embryos".

    But  EU Rapporteur Professor Trakatellis, said to "EuroFora" that fears should be alleviated by Guarantees that all this should be done only "where appropriate", when it's "not contrary to existing National Law", and "always on a Voluntary basis", according to other Parts of the Amendment.

    He stressed that the main aim was to allow "a free and informed choice of persons involved", without imposing them anything :  - "It's not an obligatory, but advisary" text, he said.

    To make that point clear, he was ready, in agreement with many MEPs, to eventually drop at least that part of the controversial Amendment which initially called for "efforts to ..lead finally to the Eradication of those rare diseases" "which are Hereditary".

    But, until late Wednesday evening, reportedly together with many other MEPs, he stood by all the rest of the controversial Amendment, (fex. on the "Genetic Counselling" and the "pre-implantation Selection of healthy Embryos"), so that critical MEPs, going from ChristianDemocrats as Dr. Liese, to "Greens" or "Ind/Dem", observed to "EuroFora" that "this was not enough" to close the dangerous loophole.

    Particularly since, as Professor Trakatellis noted himself, "this is already allowed to the U.K.", and "other National Legislations would probably follow, sooner or later" in a similar direction. As for a general call to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", this "should happen, at any case, in practice, de facto", to protect public Health.

    On the contrary, "our goal should be to help patients suffering from rare diseases, not to eradicate the patients. In case of genetic disease risk, the decision should not be guided by scenarios" made by politicians. "Perents who may decide to accept a child, even if handicapped or with genetic disease, must be respected and supported with solidarity", critical MEPs stated.

    - "Any Pressure" to "a patient or couple (who "should be able to make an informed choice consistent with their own values"),"from health Professionals, Public Health Policies or Governemental Institutions, or Society at large, should be avoided", stresses the "European Society for Human Genetics".

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

Each MEP's vote will be registered !

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

The Socialist Group requested a "Split vote" on the Amendment 15, first without, and afterwards with the words "lead finally to the Eradication" etc.


    But the first "split vote" leaves intact all the other parts of the Controversial Amendment, (i.e. "Genetic Counselling", "Selection of healthy Embryos", etc).

    That's why, 3 Groups of MEPs : ChristianDemocrats/EPP, "Greens/EFA", and "Ind/Dem", have asked for "Roll Call Votes", on everything regarding the Controversial Amendment No 15, and on the final outcome of the resulting Report as amended, which will register all the individual positions to be taken by each MEP.   

Something which will obviously make each MEP think twice before voting for one or another choice, to be sure that he/she will make the right choice in front of EU Citizens, particularly at these pre-Election times...


    Crucial Votes were scheduled between 12 Noon and 1 p.m. local Strasbourg time, in the middle of a long series of various other Reports, and after a long Public Debate on the larger Health policy package, from 9 to 11.50 am.

    The specific Report inside which was hidden the controversial Amendment is due to be debated between 11 and 12 am.

    So that more last-minute Surprises may not be excluded a priori...

    Particularly at the present Historic moment, when even the Institutional Future of the EU depends on the result of a second Referendum on "Lisbon Treaty", later this year, in ...Ireland, a mainly Catholic country, where People are particularly sensitive in such kind of socio-cultural and values issues...
