*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.

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.

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 ?
