*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.

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
