*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- The 2016 Winner of the prestigious "Vaklav Havel" Human Rights Prize, awarded at the PanEuropean, 47-Member Countries-strong CoE, the former ISIS' Prisoner, Young "Yazidi" Minority Girl, Nadia Murad, surprized Today in Strasbourg by Strongly Criticizing those who, inside the current International Community, don't really Do Anything Important in order to Find and Punish those Islamistic Extremist Terrorists of ISIL's atrocious BeHeaders even of Defenseless and Innocent Civilian People, who, in Fact, "Attack all Humanity", and its most elementary Moral Values,  as she said, (See Infra), largely Applauded by MEPs, Journalists and other participants, who Exceptionaly Stood up, spontaneously to Salute her.


F.ex., ISIS Barbarian Terrorists, just 2 Years ago (on 2014), Attacked and Destroyed the Villages of some 12.000 "Yazidi" People, made Prisoners, and "sought to Force us to Deny our Religion", reminded the fragile but resolute Young Girl who had been Taken Prisoner while aged 21, with many Women and Children, but Managed to Escape after 3 Months of Captivity, becoming a Human Rights Activist at nearby Germany.  "They Murdered Men (after being Jailed). They EnSlaved and/or Sold Women. And they Kidnapped Children, in order to Manipulate and make them "Child-Soldiers". Even Young Girls, from just 8 or 9 Years of Age, were Raped: I saw Girls just 8 or 9 y.o. being Raped, at an Age when they DidN't even Know what that Word meant, she Denounced, inter alia, Threatening a real "Genocide", as she pointed out.


+ They also Attacked Others, particularly Christians, but also Many Muslims, etc.


- "ISIS claims to act in the name of Religion, But, in reality, all it's doing is Trumpling underfoot all Humanity's Values", she stressed.

=>  - In fact, "They are Attacking Humanity", she rightfully Concluded.


 - "This ... is a Threat to us all. And we have, therefore to Mobilize, to Rally, to Stand Together", Nadia Murad Urged


---------------
- "That's why we must Bring Justice".

"We can't have Barbarians Destroy Peoples, Civilisations and Cultures !", she vowed.


- In consequence, She "Call(ed MEPs) to Help Save persecuted Minorities in the Middle East", "Save Women and Children in Conflict Zones", from other such "War Crimes", and "raise Awareness in the World-wide Community".


=> - "It's Important that such Criminals are Brought to Justice", f.ex. "in a Special Tribunal to Prosecute these Crimes".


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


 -"However, Today, Noone has been Prosecuted for Killing or Enslaving 12.000 Yazidi People. Noone has been Booked. Noone has been Called to Account !", Nadia Murad denounced.

- "In fact, No Effort, whatever, has been made (not even) to Gather Evidence : As things stand, Nobody seems to prepared to even Document these Crimes !", she revealed.

=> In Consequence, "I am UnHappy, ... I am Sad that the World is Refusing to react. That Justice is Not been done", Nadia Murad Denounced Bitterly.

 - "I personaly Lost 18 Members of my Family. Some Died, others Disappeared. And there are Thousands of Men and Women, like myself, who have Nobody, Neither Local, Regional, National or International body, Responding in any way, or showinng  any Signs that they want to make sure that Justice is done", she regretted.


=> - But, nevertheless, "I Hope that this Prize will give Renewed Strength", in order "to Continue to Move Forward, and Fight against (such) Extremism, and See to it that Good Prevails", the 2016 "Vaklav Havel" Human Rights Prize concluded.


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


CoE Assembly's President, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Pedro Agramunt, who Handed to the Recipientr the prestigious Prize, (named after the World-Famous Writer, Political Dissident, and former President of the Czech Republic), praised in fine Nadia Murad for her "Courage" and "Commitment to Human Rights".


She had Strong Competition to Face for the prestigious "Vaklav Havel" Prize, including by a prominent Journalist and Human Rights Activist on Free Speech from Serbia, and even the prestigious International Institute for Human Rights "René Cassin", Heaquartered in Strasbourg and Chaired also by former ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa, (Comp. recent Costa's Reply to an "Eurofora" Question at: ....).


But she was Selected, last Weekend in Strasbourg, at a Secret Meeting of a Group of Experienced, Top European Human Rights Experts from several CoE's Member Countries, (including, f.ex., inter alia, a Polish Expert, as well as the former Long-Time President of CoE Parliamentary Assembly's Legal and Human Rights Committee, Lawyer and f. MEP Christos Pourgourides, from Cyprus, the Country that is going to take over the PanEuropean Organisation's rotatng Presidency for the period of November 2016 - May 2017).


The Young "Yazidi", Nadia Murad, has already been one of the Nominees for the "NOBEL" Peace Prize, was recenrtly Appointed as UNO's Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking (September 2016), and currently is also one among the Nominees for EU Parliament's  "Zacharov" Prize, awarded each Year for the Freedom of Expression, whose Winner will be Known Later this Month, (towards the End of October 2016).

UN SG Ban Ki Moon, (who has recently met Personaly with Nadia Murad), in a landmark Speech, previously in Brussels, had launched a vibrant Call to the EU for resolute Action in order to Save innocent People and bring an elementary Justice by punishing the Perpetrators of Serious Crimes which in fact, Threaten Humanity.
(See relevant "Eurofora"s NewsReport at :.....) .


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


By a Timely Coincidence, Nadia Murad's plaidoyerie against ISIS' Bloody Terrorists, Denouncing a Scandalous Inaction somewhere inside the International Community, (Comp. Supra), came just Hours after the Latest Public Debate between the 2 Front-runner Candidates in the forcthcoming, November 8, crucial US Presidential Election, where Republican Candidate Donald Trump, reiterated, at his own Initiative (i.e. even without such a Question to be yet Raised by another participant) an even Stronger Call to put an End to ISIS' Misendeavours, Accusing the Out-going US President Obama and the former State Secretary Hillary Clinton, to have found only a Small Part of Iraq infested by Extremist Islamists, but to have themselves, after 8 More Years in Power (2009-2016+) Spread ISIS Terrorists in 32 Countries accross the World, as he said.


To what, Hillary, (who is also the Democrates' Candidate for the Job of New US President), simply Expressed a "Hope" that ISIS would be, finaly Defeated before the End of Obama's now finishing US Presidency, (up to January 2017), and, at any case, anounced her Intentio to rather "Go after El Bagdadi" himself, as she said, pointing at the supposed Ideological Leader of ISIS Deadly Terrorism.


However, the American People, notoriously don't have more, Today, than only Less than a Month, until the Decisive US Presidential Election's Day, (10 October - 8 November 2016)...


Shortly After that, will notoriously Follow 2 other Crucial Elections in Europe, First in France, and later-on in Germany, (May and September 2017).
Russia, which has just Completed its National Elections on September 2016, has recently Reminded President Vladimir Putin's invitation, for his Western and other Counterparts, to Join all Together in a Decisive Fight against ISIS' Deadly Terrorists, complaining that, with some Exceptions, curiously, No fully Convincing, Positive Answer hadn't been given yet, at least, until recently.

   Renew Europe's Historic Legend with Parthenon's pure white marble at the eve of crucial 2009 EU Elections, was the ambition of an interesting Art Exhibition, with more topical Symbols than expected, organized by EU Parliament's 1st vice-President Rodi Kratsa-Tsagaropoulou and MEP Marie Panayotopoulos- Cassiotou, Chair of the Inter-group on Family policy, during March A session in Strasbourg.     

According to the Ancient Legend, God Zeus, charmed by young Girl Europe, was trasformed into a strong Bull with Wings, and when she tamed him with Human affection, they flew over the Sea to live together in a New Land with large, fertile landscapes.  


- "There, they saw the Continent with a "Large Front" ("Eureia -opse" in Greek => Eur-opse => Europe)", reminded the Sculptor, Mary Papaconstantinou, of the European Women Association, honored by awards in Paris, Athens and Strasbourg.

    Thus, Europe's Legend combines Symbols of Energy and Strength, with caring Human personality, to bring towards New, large Horizons :

    - "Modern Art for this Ancient Greek Legend here in Strasbourg reminds that Europe, placing Human dignity at its heart, always finds the strength to overcome any Crisis towards New achievements. And EU Parliament offers Citizens a chance to artfully interact", said MEP Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou.

    Structured like some Rembrand's pictural sequences, Europe's sculptural exhibition forms a series of many statutes, sized and flat as a PC screen, representing many scenes inspired from the original Legend, "according to Moschos' text, a Writer of the 2nd century B.C.", said Sculptor Mary to "EuroFora".  

    Made by sparkling pure white Marble full of Symbols, they incite to think but also to act, as in front of a Book with half of its pages full of written text, but another half, free to write on white paper..

    While several EU politicians think that one of the most important characteristics of the 2009 EU Elections is that from their outcome may depend Europe's Identity and Future, Culture Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras (a former MEP) send the message that, precisely, such modern Art linked to Historic legends may help "EU Citizens search the origins of Europe's Identity".

     - "The Legend says that they founded a New City, Thebes, and that reminds us that Europe is always a project of Invention and Creation", added EU Parliament's vice-President, Rodi Kratsa - Tsagaropoulou.

    Sculptor Mary Papaconstantinou said that she "tried for years to find the same White Marble from Penteli Mountain that was used by Praxitelis and all those who created Parthenon", symbol of Democracy and one of the 7 wonders of the World.

    - "By shaping this millenary Greek Marble to revive Europe's Ancien Legend with Modern Art, it reminds that Europe is a Hope for a better Future after Crisis, combining Energy for Development, with care for the Human person", said the sculptor's compatriot from Chios island, famous from French artist Delacroix's historic painting, MEP Panayotopoulos - Cassiotou.

    She now lives with her Family close to Rhine river, at EU's heart, near Bonn, where had started to work for the first time on European issues the new EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle :

    By a symbolic coincidence, Europe's legend built anew with Parthenon's marble, marked for ever the beginning of young and energetic Welle's duties as new head of EU Parliament's administration, since he saluted the retiring, out-going S.G., the experienced Harold Rohmer, shortly afterwards, at another gathering on the same floor of Louise Weiss' superb building in Strasbourg...

    Organisers of both events said that it was a pure coincidence. People are free to believe them, or hope otherwise...


**********************

    They disagree in almost everything, except from one thing :

- EU Parliament's Art unites even opposed politicians in a common belief for Europe : Cyprus' example...


imag0859_400

Rarely united together, but posing for "EuroFora" with the statute of Europe and Zeus flying over the Sea, ChristianDemocrat/EPP's MEP Yannis Kasulides, a frontrunner Presidential candidate in 2008, former Foreign Minister and Government Spokesman, and EuroLeft's MEP Kyriakos Triantafylides, Chairman of EU - Palestinian Council delegation, from the governing party AKEL (new Left) of the elected President, disagree on almost everything, except from their common claim that Europe of the Ancient Legend, when she flew with God Zeus from Ancient Phynecia to the West, must have crossed the island of Cyprus !

Hard to prove the contrary, 3.000 years later...

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 ?
