*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- As USA started to react, the same CoE Rapporteur who had succesfully launched the 1st Call to Save assieged Kobane City from ISIS' Deadly Islamist Terrorists cowardly Targetting even innocent Civilians, back on 2014 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforimmediateinternationalhelptosyriankurds.html, etc), Experienced former Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyanni, who has just become, this week in Strasbourg, the PanEuropean CoE Assembly's New Rapporteur on Syria, reportedly urged to Stop Hostilities, after Turkey's, much Criticized, Military Invasion in Syria's Kurdish Region at Afrin, and to Protect Civilian People.

- Declaring to be "Extremely Worried, about the Situation in Afrin", (the Syrian Kurdish Region attacked by Turkey's Military and its Proxy Armed Gangs), COE's Rapporteur on Syria urged for "No Further Escalation of Hostilities" started by Ankara's Military Invasion a few Days ago, and Stressed that "it's Important to ... Protect Civilians", as well as to have an "Humanitarian Access" to that Region, according to an Official Publication made Today (Friday) by PACE's Political Affairs Committee, and Re-Published by CoE's General Communication Service.


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


+ Meanwhile, Germany reportedly moved to Raise the Issue also inside NATO, (where Turkey's position has notoriously become more and more Controversial, particularly after buying Russian Anti-Air Missile System "S400", Blocking Western Politician's Access sometimes to Incirlik AirBase, sometimes to their own Troops manning "PATRIOT" Anti-Missile Systems lended to Turkey, Spying and/or Bullying NATO Member States on alleged Dissidents living in Europe, and now Attacking the International Coalition's Best local Allies against ISIL's Islamist Terrorists, etc).

 

 Earlier this week, French President Macron, "expressed ... his Concern, following the Turkish Military Intervention launched on Saturday in Afrin's area", said an Official Press Comuniqué published by Elysée Palace in Paris. In particular, Macron reminded the Need to ":


 - "Fight, as a matter of Priority, against ISIS, and All the Jihadist Forces present",


- "Ensure, for Civilian Populations the indispensable Humanitarian conditions"


- "Facilitate the on the spot conditions for a Sustainable Political Solution"
.
 

---------------------
- USA has also Denounced the Fact that Turkey's Military Invasion of Syria's Kurdish Region obviously risks to "Distract" attention from the recent Focus on totally Defeating ISIL's Deadly Islamist Terrorists :

- "“The Violence in Afrin Disrupts what was a relatively Stable Area in Syria, and Distracts from the International effort to Defeat ISIS", U.S. Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis, denounced.


- Therefore, Mattis "Urge(d) Turkey to exercice Restraint", Both "in the Miitary Action", "and" on the provocative "Rhetoric", (which, according to an "AP"'s "FactCheck", contains several UnTrue claims, which are Grossly Fake : F.ex. that "ISIS" would exist at Afrin's area, that Syrian Kurds would have "Attacked" Turkey : Both False, and so on)...


=> So that New US President Don Trump has just "expressed Concern about Destructive and False Rhetoric coming from Turkey", as an Official "White House" Press Readout revealed.


- US President Trump also "relayed (to Turkey's Erdogan) Concerns that Escalating Violence in Afrin, Syria, Risks UnderCutting our ... Goals in Syria : "All parties" "Must Focus ... on .. . Achieving the Lasting Defeat of ISIS" instead, the White House pointed out.


>>>That's why, the American President "Urged Turkey to DeEscalate, LImit its Military Actions, and Avoid Civilian Casualties", as well as "Increases to Displaced persons and Refugees".


Significantly, the "White House" listed what U.S. considers as "Terrorism" in that area, citting "ISIS, Al-Quaida, PKK and Iranian-sponsored Terrorism", but clearly Ommitting even to mention here, the Syrian Kurds of YPG, (who have Never Attacked Turkey until now, as an "AP FactCheck" reminded in parallel).


+ Moreover, Don Trump also "Urged Turkey to exercice Caution, and to Avoid any actions that might Risk Conflict between Turkish and American Forces" (sic !) in Syria's Kurdish region, (particularly after Erdogan threatened to Extend Turkey's Military Invasion even to adjacent areas, where U.S.A. Defense Officers are present)...


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


+ Mainstream North American NewsAgency "Bloomberg" has just published a Strong Criticism of the current Risk to "Betray" USA's recently proven "Best Allies" in that Strategic area, i.e. the Syrian Kurds, with Consequence for the USA to Never Find any Other new Ally, ready to fight efficiently, anywhere else in the World, at the foreseable Future...


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


++ The Syrian Kurds have also, reportedly, launched a call for the Country's National Government in Damas, to Join Forces in order to Defend Syria's Territorial Integrity from the Turkish Military Invasion which pushes also some "Proxy" Armed Gangs opposed to Damas.


+++ Earlier this week in Strasbourg, PanEuropean COE's Parliamentary Assembly (PACE)'s Bureau, backed by at least the 4 Biggest Political Groups of MEPs, (the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, the Socialists, the Liberals, and the EuroLeft, etc), openly Supported a series of proposals asking Turkey to "immediately Stop" its Military Intervention, calling for a relevant UN SC Resolution, Measures to Save Civilian Peoples' Lives and care for new Refugees provoked by Ankara's troops invasion, as well as to Seek Peaceful Political Solutions, (See : ....).


=> The Next Meeting of CoE Assembly's Bureau will take place on March 2018 in Paris, immediately Followed by an Important PACE's "Standing Committee" subsequent Session, (which has, in principle, Equal Powers to PACE's Plenary sessions, as that which is scheduled for April 2018 in Strasbourg).


Both Moves will be Preceded by an Earlier Meeting of PACE's Political Affairs Committee, also in Paris, due to be Chaired by its Newly Elected President, the Experienced Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten, from the Same ChristianDemocrat/EPP Political Group as PACE's New Rapporteur on Syria, mainstream MEP Dora Bakoyanis, (who, as Rapporteur, can Follow relevant developments and make Urgent Statements on her Mandate, whenever Necessary).

 

 +Meanwhile, the mainly Turkey-controlled "Opposition" in Syria, has just Refused to go to Sochi (Russia) for an Important Meeting on the Peace process in Syria.

Until now, that Meeting had been Interpreted as a Concession by Turkey to Russia, speculating that, in exchange, Moscow might have accepted to Close its Eyes on Ankara's eventual Military Intervention against Syrian Kurds.

But, Today, after that blunt Refusal, Russia has no more reasons for closing its eyee on Turkey's selfish wrongdoings, no more...

After the cowardly Killing of 2 Russian Pilots, stubbed behind the back while Fighting against ISIL's Islamist Terrorism at the Turkish-Syrian Borders near Afrin, (followed even by the Brutal Murder of the Russian Ambassador to Ankara, by a Turkish "Guard"), now it's also the Syrian Kurds, who had Dared Fight a Hard but Succesful  Struggle against ISIL's Deadly Islamist Terrorism, who are Stubbed behind the back by the Turkish Military and its Proxies... 

I.e. the Same who had notoriously profited from several Years of various illegal Trafficks to and from ISIL Terrorists, (f.ex. Jihadists, Arms, Oil/Gas, stolen Cultural Goods, etc), always in Total Impunity !          

  - Could, all this, be just a pure "Coincidence" ?...

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 :

dsc01185_400



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.
