*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Chilcot Iraq War Inquiry, mainly on Controversial former PM Blair's role back on 2003, is due to Publish its Long-Awaited Results later this Week, EU Parliament paid Today Hommage to the Victims of a Series of Bloody Attacks by ISIL's Terrorists which Killed Many Civilian People in Iraq, Yemen, Turkey and Bangladesh last week, apparently abused as a Morbid "Publicity" Tool by those Brutal and Inhuman Extremist Islamist Gangs who are reportedly Losing Ground recently both in the Iraq and in Syrian fronts on the ground.


The President of EU Parliament, Martin Schulz from Germany, (an experienced SocialDemocrat MEP since 1994 : Comp. f.ex. his 1st INTW to "Eurofora"s Co-Founder already as Early as since 1995, published then at "TCWeekly", etc), observed that "More than 300 People were Killed, and more than 500 Wounded", including even "Civilians, Women and Children", during those latest Terrorist Attacks, and Expressed MEPs' Strong "Condemnation" of such a "Monstrous Violence" and "Murderous Ideology", by a "Terrorism without Borders", which "can only be Combatted with a Global Cooperation", as he stressed.


President Schulz also expressed the European Parliament's wish to "Stand By those Other Regions of the World", as well as MEPs' "Condoleances" for the Victims (from "Different Origins, Religions and Nationalities", as he observed), of this Series of Deadly Terrorist Attacks, which were All Revendicated by ISIL's Terrorists, with the Only Exception of that latest strike in Turkey, which Targetted Foreign Tourists at the International Section of Istanbul's Airport, as also at the Diplomatic Quarter of Bangladesh's Capital Dacca.


At the Deadliest Terrorist Attack in Iraq since 2003, more than 210 Civilian People were reportedly Killed at a Market in Bagdad, including 20 Women and 25 Children. In Yemen, about 80 People, more than Half of them Civilians, were also Killed during a Series of Bombings and varViolent Clashes. In Turkey, a Majority of Foreign Tourists, from Many Countries around the World, as well as Security a.o. Staff, and about 9 Turkish Civilians were among the 45 Victims of 3 Suicide Bombers from Foreign Countries, attributed by Ankara to ISIL. But a Few Days Earflier, as many as 8 Other ISIL's Suicide Bombers had reportedly Attacked a Christian Village in Lebanon, near the Syrian Borders. As for Bangladesh, among the almost 30 Victims in a Hostage-Taking Attack at a Restaurant, were also, at least 7 European Civilian People, (including Women), mainly from Italy, (as ChristianDemocrat MEP Mrs Gardini pointed out at EU Parliament's Plenary).


Mainstream German Newspaper "Die Welt" Published Today an Article with Visual Documents and Factual Data revealing that ISIL's Deadly Terrorists and Atrocious BeHeaders even of Innocent and Defenseless Civilian People, are currently Exploiting a Long Series of Recent Attacks, from the USA (Orlando Massacre) up to Iraq and Bangladesh, etc., during a so-called "Ramadan Offensive" (sic !), also in order to make more Publicity for their "2nd Anniversary" since the "proclamation of the Khalifat" in the Territories of Iraq and Syria that their Armed Gangs had Occupied since 2014, by Claiming an International Terrorist Network including "Covert Armies" in Many Countries, even in Europe (France), as they boasted.


However, an Initial Intention by the Biggest Group of MEPs, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, to lodge a Demand for a Debate and the Vote of a Resolution on these latest Tragedies, was, Finaly, droped, at least for the Time being, for reasons which were Not Discussed in Public Now.


The above-mentioned, EU Parliament's brief Introductory Event, Right at the Beginning of the July 2016 Weekly Plenary Session in Strasbourg, Coincided, as Schulz noted from the outset, also with the apparently Natural Death, in the Age of 85 y.o., of former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard, a long-time Socialist, but who had also assumed a Mission on Hig-Tech Investments entrusted to hium by former President Nicolas Sarkozy, (currently Head of the main Opposition New "Republican" Party), who had just Published, just a Few Days Earlier this Month, an Exclusive, Frontpage INTW at a mainstream Review Magazine, Accusing "the French Left" to be "The Most Retrograde in the World", as well as with the Natural Death also of World Famous Writer Elie Wiesel, one of the Last Witnesses of the 2nd World War and NAZI/Fascist regimes' Inhuman Atrocities.

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.
