*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- While the Controversy on a pro-Secession Referendum in Catalonia Region of Spain approaches the scheduled Day of October 1st, even if EU Parliament reportedly Decided Not to hold Any Public Debate on that issue during its forthcoming Plenary Session in Strasbourg Next Week, (from October 2 to 5), however, Secessionist Groups have Exploited even the recent Barbaric Tragedy of Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks at Barcelona in order to make Propaganda for their Plan to hold that Referendum, Denounced to "Eurofora" the Secretary General of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party, and Top MEP, Antonio López-Istúriz, speaking some days earlier in EU Parliament here.


Replying to relevant "Eurofora"s Questions, (particularly whether the recent Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks provoked a Reaction of National Unity between all the Spanish People),

Lopez-Isturiz regretted the Fact that, Despite the presence even of Prime Minister Rajoy and of the King, together with the Victims' Families, and many People, at a huge Public Demonstration in Barcelona in honor of the Victims, nevertheless, some exploited even that sacred moment in order to Distribute f.ex. Leaflets with Publicity about that Controversial Secessionist Referendum attempt, (which has been Declared illegal by the Country's Constitutional Court).


- "At least, they should have Respected the Families of the Victims !", EPP's Secretary General and Top MEP López-Istúriz, pointed out.

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


On the Contrary, he abstained from any Comment on Anti-Terrorist Measures, as. f.ex., around the recent Barcelona ISIS' Deadly Attacks :

Mainstream Spanish Medias (as "ABC" etc), had, f.ex., claimed that, according to Securiy sources, the Catalan Regional Police would have Refused Access on the spot to the Spanish National Police, when an Explosion occured, initialy, at a House where ISIS Terrorists lived. So that the Catalan Regional Authorities erroneously thought that it was a purely Accidental Gas incident, without realizing, at first, that it was a Blunder in Handling Dozens of Bombs stocked there. In Consequence, an Anti-Terrorist Alert Delayed for Many Hours, Excluding the Timely Prevention of the Deadly Terrorist Attacks (otherwise avoidable) which Followed Later on, elsewhere in Barcelona, (See, f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html).


López-Istúriz, preferred to Focus, rather, on the fact that, at any case, an Efficient Anti-Terrorist action Necessitated a Smooth Cooperation, between National and Regional Police Services, not only on how to ReAct to eventual Islamist Terrorist Attacks, but, most of all, already on how to Prevent them, particularly by a systematic and Timely Exchange of relevant Intelligence, in order to Save Lives of innocent Civilian People notoriously Targetted by ISIS' a.o. Deadly Terrorists.


24 People of 10 Nationalities were Killed, and more than 130 Victims from over 34 Countries were Wounded, by the series of Islamist Terrorist Violence at Barcelona, Catalonia's capital City, last August 2017 (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html).


The Number of Muslim Migrants in Catalonia had very Rapidly ... Exploded, Growing from 30.000 up to 700.000 in just Ten Years, Becoming, in certain Catalan Municipalities, Bigger than 20 % of the Local Population (!), as Spain's Biggest Newspaper "El Pais" (Center-Left) had Warned, already on 2015, i.e. precisely when the Latest Local Elections took place.


Among 98 Dangerous Mosques found, throughout All Spain, to Spread "the Most Radical" views of Islam, including "Salafism", etc., at least 50 were in Catalonia, (i.e. "More than the Half") !...


A radicalized Imam from a Catalan City near France, and with links to Belgium, appeared to be ISIS' Deadly Terrorist Gang's ring-Leader in Barcelona's 2017 Attacks. He was personaly linked to anOther, Islamist Terrorism Suspect, Mosque manager at Barcelona, who had been prosecuted, condemned and jailed, in the Past, in the context of a Wide Anti-Terrorism operation of the Spanish Police, but later released, after Catalan pro-Independence Lawyers attacked the Legality of that operation for Procedural reasons.


At least 2 among those local Lawyers were, soon afterwards, Elected in Catalonia as Deputy Mayor of Barcelona or MP, etc, while, almost at the same period, clear indications of Socio-Political Convergence of Interests between some Muslim Migrant Lobbies seeking Voting Rights and Catalan Independantists emerged (Comp. Supra).


Since those Elections of 2015, an atypical Left-oriented Regional Government seized ¨Power in Catalonia, pushing twice towards an "Indepencence" Referendum, which was also declared illegal repeatedly by the Spanish National Constitutional Court. After those pro-Independence Catalan region politicians declared also their intention to make Secession from Spain on 2017, the National Government at Madrid took Measures to try to prevent that Vote, scheduled for Sunday, October 1st, among rising tensions, but also alleged last-minute attempts to find a Peaceful Compromise, in one way or another.


The now governing pro-Independence Catalan politicians, according to International mainstream Medias, have not yet a Majority of the regional population with them, but acceeded since 2015 in office mainly because of the Regional Electoral System which gives priority to Rural areas. A First Referendum of 2015 was won by them with a Weak Participation of People, less than normal. But now, on 2017, it's the First Time that such an attempt is followed also by a declared intention to Kick-Start a Fast-track process towards Secession, resulting in greater tension now, unless a timely compromise is found peacefully, de jure or de facto.

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.
