Together with EU Commission's vice-President Tajani, who prepares to speak tomorrow at EU Parliament on GALILEO Satellite Navigation System High-Tech, as well as many CoE's Ambassadors/Permanent Representatives and other CoE Officials , including even "Laic" countries as France, or mainly Christian Orthodox countries as Cyprus, Russia, etc., and not only predominantly Catholic countries such as Poland, Malta, Italy, etc,  but also Thousands of various other People at Strasbourg's huge Cathedral, filled with Songs on Historic Saints from all EU Countries, from Sweden and the UK up to Cyprus and Spain, through Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, etc., Vatican's PanEuropean envoy, Permanent  CoE observer, Mgr. Aldo Giordano, an Italian Dr. of Philosophy educated at German Universities, marked with an unexpectedly sharp, but also Human, Homelie the 1st "Mass for Europe" in years, celebrated today at the beginning of EU Parliament's 2011 introductory Plenary session in Strasbourg.

(See "EuroFora"s relevant earlier publication).


    Europe needs Resurrection, and many People are currently, courageously starting a New Search for a real Christian Humanism in a New Europe, in order to avoid the risk to fall into the trap of another, "much Longer Night" of "Death of God", even worse than in the Horrible Past of Nazism/Fascism and/or abusive Stalinism disrespecting Human Dignity, he said in substance.

    - Those who claimed too early that .. "God is Dead", as Nietzsche, ... died before Him, and even before the oldest Christian Pope of their own era who survived  : As f.ex. famous Pope Leo XIII, who lived up to 1903, aged more than 93 years old (1910-1903), i.e. three more years than Nietzsche, dead back in 1900, aged only 56 years old (1944-1900), Giordano hinted, reminding an Historic Pope who wrote many works also on topical Political ideas, since his landmark "Rerum Novarum"...


    - But, during a "Century of Totalitarisms, we experienced (even in Europe) what it really means a World withoud God", reminded Giordano, obviously pointing mainly to the inhuman atrocities of Concentration and Extermination Camps, Gulag, etc., (even if it might be true that they were not equal in Horror against Human Rights)...


    Therefore, he turned upside down the negative presentation that Nietzsche had initially made of "a Madman who goes around holding a Light even in the middle of the Day, and asking  : "Where is God ?", just to get the hard answer : - "He's Dead. We killed him !"..


    - On the contrary, "Now, we see the awakening of a  New Search", for a Meaning in Life, which could "not exist" in a kind of "Humanism without God", but only with and in Him, Giordano observed, refering here also to the most recent among Pope Benedict's  masterworks  : the 6/2009 Encyclique "Caritas in Veritate" ("Love in Truth").


    + But, at the same time, "as Europeans, we should also be concerned with what happens all around the World", he added, speaking not only of Europe's Historic vocation towards Universalism, but also of Topical issues: - "F.ex., the emergence of China and/or India, and its  social, political and cultural consequences", Giordano pointed out.


    ++ Even more important that the previous, GeoPolitical challenge, the Crucial Questions raised today by new, but urgent needs to find a just balance for "Human" values, vis a vis "Scientifico-Technical Reason", call for more "Courage, to Search anew God", as he said.


    - Otherwise, today, another "Death of God" (Comp. supra), could provoke "a longer Night, extending much more, and more further away", he warned, (f.ex. given the gigantic developments in Genetic, Brain and other Technologies penetrating deep inside Human persons, which obviously add also new dangers of eventual abuses).


    - Therefore, Mgr Giordano invited to "recognize the cry of Christ Crucified, in the face of all Human beings who suffer".

    + But also to "recognize Christ's Resurrection in a New Europe", reconciled and taking care of the poor, without "throwing new wine in old cups", because, contrary to those who attempt to find a "Terminal stage" for Christianism, in fact, "Christianism is very Young", and "the Real Question is : - When Christianism will really Start ?"


    However, in front of manifold, often hard, today's challenges, it certainly needs a lot of Faith to believe, as Mgr Giordano invited us, that EU Citizens could simply "entrust" Europe "in the hands of Christ, and let Him surprise us", as he optimisticaly concluded ...


  Trust Christ, is one thing. But abandon Him alone, is another, very differend, thing. Therefore, at least actively offer to sincerely Help Him, seems urgently needed, considering Europe's challenges..

ΕΔΑΔ-Τουρκία : ΡΕΚΟΡ στυγνών Παραβιάσεων Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων τη Δεκαετία "Υποψηφιότητας" σ ΕΕ (1999 2008) !

---------------------------------------------------------
* Στρασβούργο/ΑΚΜ/ 13-14 Οκτωβρίου 2008/

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

 Δέκα χρόνια μετά την αμφιλεγόμενη απόδοση στην Τουρκία καθεστώτος "υποψήφιου" για ένταξη στην ΕΕ, η Αγκυρα κατέχει ΡΕΚΟΡ από καταδίκες για στυγνές παραβιάσεις Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων, όπως αποκάλυψαν νέες Στατιστικές του Ευρωπαικού Δικαστηρίου ΑΔ στο Στρασβούργο :

    Συγκεκριμένα η Τουρκία έρχεται 1η από 47 χώρες ΣτΕ σε καταδίκες για βαριές παραβιάσεις στη Δεκαετία 1998-2008 : Οπως Ανθρωποκτονίες (171 καταδίκες, έναντι 82 για Ρωσία, 15 Βουλγαρία, 13 Αγγλία), Βασανιστήρια κι Απάνθρωπες-Ταπεινωτικές μεταχειρίσεις (192 καταδίκες, αντί 107 Ρωσία, 37 Βουλγαρία, 32 Μολδαβία, 11 Ελλάδα), Στέρηση Ελευθερίας (325 καταδίκες, έναντι 190 για Πολωνία, 176 Βουλγαρία, 127 Ρωσία), καταπίεση Ελευθερίας Λόγου (161 παραβιάσεις, έναντι 39 γι Αυστρία, 13 για Γαλλία και Μολδαβία), στέρηση Περιουσίας (444 καταδίκες, έναντι 286 Ρωσία, 270 Ιταλία), κα.

    Εξάλλου, μετά από μικρή μείωση το 2005, οι νέες προσφυγές εναντίον των Τουρκικών Αρχών στο ΕΔΑΔ για επιπλέον παραβιάσεις ξανάρχισαν ν αυξάνονται σταθερά τα πρόσφατα έτη 2007 και 2008.

    Η δε Κύπρος, όπου συνεχίζεται η Τουρκική κατοχή, είναι η μοναδική περιοχή στην Ευρώπη όπου "είναι σαφές ότι τ Ανθρώπινα Δικαιώματα ΔΕΝ ΠΡΟΧΩΡΗΣΑΝ αρκετά" τα τελευταία 10 Χρόνια, έστω κι άν δεν υπάρχει πλέον εμπόλεμος κατάσταση, όπως τώρα  μεταξύ Γεωργίας και Ρωσίας, αλλ "αντίθετα, πρόσφατες Ελπίδες για Ειρήνη κι επανΕνωση της νήσου", είπε ο Πρόεδρος του ΕΔΑΔ, κ, Ζάν-Πώλ Κόστα, εκφράζοντας την "λύπη" του.

    Πρόκειται για "τυπική περίπτωση μαζικών παραβιάσεων", πρόσθεσε σ απάντηση ερώτησής μας για την Κύπρο (βλ. πληρέστερη είδηση σχετικά).
    
    Αλλ "άν υπάρξει θέληση από Κράτη και Κοινωνία, τ Ανθρώπινα Δικαιώματα δεν θα παρακμάσουν στον 21ο αιώνα. Αντίθετα θα προοδεύσουν". Χρειάζεται "νέα ορμή" για "υπεράσπισή τους, με συνεχή επαγρύπνηση", κατέληξε ο κ, Κόστα σ άλλες, γενικότερες δηλώσεις του νωριτερα στο Στρασβούργο.

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 ?
