*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The 1st French Politician (after those in Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, etc) to dare Resist controversial Turkish Government's pressing attempts to find in Europe a place for M. Erdogan's notorious Propaganda to impose a Constitutional modification that Council of Europe has just denounced as "Dangerous" and a "SetBack" against Democratic Principles, in addition to the well known recent Massive Violations of Human Rights of many Tens of Thousands of Dismissed and/or Arrested and Jailed (allegedly some even Tortured and/or Raped, etc, according to International Human Righs NGOs) Judges, Teachers, Civil Servants, Journalists, MPs, Soldiers, Kurds, etc, recently extended even towards European Countries, inside which f.ex. Turkish "Ditib"s strange Imams were found in Germany etc. to Spy over European Populations here, (after the Turkish Consulates, f.ex. in the Netherlands, etc), is a Young "Rising Star" of mainstream Center-Right "Republican" Party, (created by Experienced former French President Nicolas Sarkozy on 2015, who had been Voted then as its 1st Leader, and now represented in the forthcoming 2017 Presidential Election by former Prime Minister Francois Fillon), the New vice-President of Strasbourg's "Great East" Mega-Region, and fresh Candidate to the forthcoming Parliamentary Elections of June 2017, Elsa Schalck, former Leader of that Party's Youth and Lawyer:

 


Speaking  to "Eurofora" on that "Hot" issue Today, she reacted to a Topical Public Debate which has just reached the level even of German Chancelor Angie Merkel, the Dutch Prime Minister and Top Opposition Leaders, EU Commission's vice-President Jean-Claude Juncker, etc., (See Infra).


Elsa is even more Directly concerned, since she has been now selected as the "Republicans"' New Candidate for MP in the 1st Constituency of Strasbourg, to which belongs also the Suburb of "Haute-Pierre" (means : High Stone), inside which is located the City's Biggest Building for Collective Socio-Cultural Events : that of "Zenith - Europe", where the controversial Mr Erdogan had already chosen to hold, Exceptionaly, a  Political Event, (a "First" ever in that Facility, build with Public Funds, mainly at Local/Regional level, by a previous Mayorship in Strasbourg, steming from Today's "Republican" Party), gathering here Thousands of openly politicized Turkish Immigrants from several European Countries, (and particularly, from nearby Germany, etc), already Back on October 2005, (Comp., f.ex., "Eurofora"s NewsReport on that event, at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/erdoganspeechonterroromitsisis.html, despite the fact that, as many others, "Eurofora"s Family had to Find a "Refuge" those Days at Nearby Switzerland, escaping from those politicized Turkish Crowds, added to various "Counter-Demonstrations", etc., which had submerged then the area).

- "No", I don't think at all that it would be a good idea to eventualy allow to hold such a meeting nowadays here in Strasbourg, Miss Schalck replied to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question on that Topical Issue.


- "Here" (i.e. in France), "it's for us", French Politicians, "to hold Public Debates, on the Country's National and/or European Political Choices, told us the Youngest vice-President of Strasbourg's "Great East" Mega-Region, located at the "Heart" of Europe, EU and €urozone, (which has been Recently Extended considerably, up to the point to have Now common Borders bringing Together 5 European Countries : France, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium, i.e. practicaly Linking UNO's Headquarters at nearby Geneva, to Strasbourg's Headquarters of the CoE, ECHR and EU Parliament's full Plenaries, as well as Luxembourg's EU Court of Justice and Court of Auditors, up to Belgium's EU Council and EU Commission's Headquarters), speaking at the Eve of the Forthcoming French Presidential and Parliamentary Elections of April/May and June 2017, respectively, which are notoriously Crucial also for Topical Debates on EU's foreseable Future.


- As far as the Controversial current Turkish Government is concerned, "They have enough things to do for themselves in their Country, which have not yet been done", Elsa Shalck, furthermore, criticaly observed, Explaining to "Eurofora" that she obviously referred to all those Recent CoE's and other European/International Institutions' Official Announcements, including even Today in Strasbourg, which Criticize and/or Warn against Serious Risks of Massive Violations of Human Rights, Backlash on Rule of Law and/or basic Democratic Principles, particularly Aggravating in nowadays Turkey  : F.ex. by CoE Parliamentary Assembly's "Monitoring" Committee, CoE's Human Rights' Commissioner, CoE's "Venice" Commission on Democracy through Law, etc, and even by UNO's Human Rights' bodies at Nearby Geneva, (etc).


The French ChristianDemocrat/EPP Young Politician was also reacting to "Eurofora"s reminder of the Recent Public Controversy between the German Chancelor Angie Merkel and other Top EU Political Leaders, with controversial Turkish President Tayip Erdogan, who notoriously Accused modern Germany for so-called ..."NAZI remnants" (sic !), but also the Netherlands for ... "FASCIST practice" (re-sic !), added to EU Commission's President, former Long-Time Prime Minister of Luxembourg and f. Chairman of "€uroGroup", Jean-Claude Juncker, who was also Accused of ... "RACIST trend" (sic !!!) by Turkey's Deputy Foreign Minister for European affairs, Omar Tcelik, (Both mostly Echoed also by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglou, and/or Prime Minister Binali Yildirim), for Not Yielding to Ankara Government's Growing Pressure to Impose Public Meetings of Foreign Governments with Turkish Immigrants inside Europe for Open Political Propaganda on Controversial Issues, to whom the Top German and EU Leaders reportedly Replied that such Insults were "Absolutely Inexcusable" and/or "Shameful", respectively.


After several Refusals in Germany, (particularly from Regional "Länder", i.e. Federated States' and/or various other Authorities), Press reports for a General Refusal by the Austrian Government, an Interdiction of Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglou's Airplane to land in the Netherlands, where Police and/or Local/Regional Authorities also Prohibited 2 Public Meetings with Turkey's Ministers, it's also in Switzerland that the Zurich Canton and another one were Added to a Fast-Growing Series of European Countries Unwilling to yield to Ankara's Pressure and even open Threats on that "Hot" and Controversial Issue, which was Earlier Preceded by Popular Reactions against some very Loud Nationalist Turkish Gatherings with Ankara's current regime's representatives f.ex. in Koeln and/or other German Cities, followed Recently by the "Ditib" Turkish "Imam Spying" Scandal in Germany, added to a Turkish Consulate Spying Scandal also in the Netherlands and elsewhere inside Europe, (where Turkish Officials had notoriously been urged to even Collect Informations and/or Denonciations against Dissident figures or views expressed in public, even of critical Journalists, etc), Amidst mounting Tension provoked also by various kinds of relevant Street Demonstrations and/or Counter-Demonstrations, etc., resulting to Inevitable Fears of even more Unrest, Mob Clashes, etc.


This was, by a striking Coincidence, almost Immediately Followed even by a recrudecence of Isolated but Serial, and Bloody Violent apparently Islamist Terrorist Attacks Targetting various Innocent Civilian People in Germany, (Cowardly even a Young Girl aged only 13 y.o., reportedly Attacked from Behind with an Axe, an Old Man aged 80 y.o. seriously Knifed, with Life-Threatening Wounds, a massive Gas-Attack inside Public Transports' system, etc), but also 2 Different Reported "Explosions" in Sweden, (etc).


European Government's Criticism of Erdogan's loud and abrupt Accusations against Socio-Cultural "Integration" policies for Turkish a.o. Immigrants, made while Visiting Germany, during such Public Meetings, Back on Autumn/Winter 2005, had notoriously been almost immediately Followed by Exceptionaly Violent Moves and Clashes by some apparently (at least partly) Manipulated Immigrants in several French Suburbs, setting Fires, destroying Cars, Robbing Shops, etc, which Ceased only after then President Jaques Chirac authorized then Minister of Interior Nicolas Sarkozy to use all adequate means for the reestablishment of Republican Order. But, Before that, inter alia, 2 Young Teenagers had been reportedly Led by a Turkish origin Adult aged 21, into a Dangerous Electric Power Building Site, allegedly under pretext to "Hide" from French Police, during Stone-Throwing and Fire-Setting, Clubs-Brandishing, etc. Street Clashes, where the inexperienced Children, from Other Immigrant origins, were inevitably Electrocuted Dead, while their "Leader", that Turkish Adult 21 y.o., (perhaps Experienced also by notorious Turkish Lobbies' Links to Buildings' Business, there and elsewhere), was the Only one who managed to get out Alive, Fueling Afterwards even More Street Clashes Following Controversial Claims that he reportedly made to Local Medias immediately after that Tragic Incident, (even if some of his parents reportedly tried to alleviate somehow such "Hot" Statements, Later-on).


Be it, possibly, for the Sake of Many Thousand of People's Human Rights' currently Massively Oppressed, notoriously in Turkey, particularly nowadays, (even Long Before an alleged Short-lived, 6 Hours-long "Coup Attempt" on July 2016, which served for main Pretext to a serious Aggravation afterwards, as, inter alia, also UNO's High Commissioner on Human Rights, Zeid bin Ra’ad's strong Denonciations of already Previous Mass Oppression of mainly Kurdish Populations in Turkey, obviously show), and/or in order to Simply Prevent Risks of "Importing more Tensions" inside Europe, f.ex. by probably provocative pro-Turkish Government Demonstrations, facing various "Counter-Demonstrations" by Dissidents, Human Rights Organisations, etc, but, may be also some eventual Concerns about Preventing recrudences of that Recent "Spying" Scandal inside Europe, reportedly by Ankara Government-controlled "Ditib" a.o. "Imams", Turkish Consulates, etc, as, f.ex. in Germany and/or the Netherlands, etc, particularly in the Recent Delicate Context of various Islamist Terrorists' Bloody Attacks Targetting Innocent Civilians in Europe, the USA and elsewhere in the World, (Comp. Supra), etc., EU Politicians' reserves on such Controversial Foreign Government-pushed Public Gatherings nowadays, obviously should not be underestimated.

 

 Particularly not when it Starts here by a Rising New French Politician, with deep Links to Both Young People, and Franco-German trans-border Relationship.

 

+ As for those Turkish Government Accusations of .."Racism" (sic) against EU Commission's President Jean-Claude Juncker (Comp. Supra), Elsa's observations to a pre-Electoral Strasbourg gathering, were Interesting, particularly concerning "Integration"'s need and potential : While having, naturaly, Strongly Defended her Political Family's beliefs to France's "Values", "History" and "Identity", etc., at the same time, she pointed at Young Jonas, another "Republican" Party Youth Member, who had recently made a Good Speech on French Politics, underlying the Fact, that, even if when he came here, he barely spoke the French Language, nevertheless, at Present, we are Proud of him !", she rightfully concluded, smiling Friendly to that Young French of Migrant origin, Well Integrated now in the European Culture.

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.

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 ?
