*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced former EU Commissioner and currently EU Parliament's vice-President, Italian ChristianDemocrat/EPP long-time MEP, Antonio Tajani, speaking Today to "Eurofora", stressed that the potential role of core Humanistic Values in the Fight against ISIL-like Deadly and Destructive Terrorism, including through Inter-Religious Dialogue between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Budhists, a.o. confessions, is Crucial :


 - "I really Believe that. It's very Important !", vice President Tajani clearly underlined, inter alia, Replying to a relevant "Eurofora" Question this Evening in Strasbourg, on the sidelines of EU Parliament's October II Plenary Session here.

Tajani is Officialy in charge, since 2014, also of Inter-Religious Dialogue, as far as EU Parliament's policies are concerned, including for the Fight against Radicalisation provoked by propaganda and/or criminal acts recently inspired particularly by ISIL's Deadly Terrorists, atrocious BeHeaders even of Innocent Civilian People.
    
- In this Regard, he pointed at the Fact that, Nowadays, particularfly after the recent Terrorist Attacks  in several European Countries and even inside the US, there is "an Urgent Need for Fraternity", but "a Major Question is Which Pathway to follow for that ?" So that, instead of Dividing, we should Unite People in the "absolute Imperative" for an Efficient Fight against provoked Radicalisation.


 => Therefore, Tajani personaly confirmed and pointed today at a "Message" to try to Advance Further than the usual forms of Dialogue between Religions, which, for the EU, should be "part of the Solution", since, in principle, they all Defend the "Sacred Value of Human Life", as well as "Human Dignity", particularly by aiming to "Deepen" this towards the "Possible" Emergence of "a New Humanism".

EU Parliament's competent vice-President was reacting personaly Today to a reference made by "Eurofora" at a Letter with such mentions, earlier transmitted by his Office to a recent Collective Meeting on "Inter-Religious Dialogue and Fight against Radicalisation", organized  by Strasbourg's relevant Think-Tank Association "DECERE", (presented by an Experienced former Long-Time EU Parliament's Protocol Director , Francois Bernagel), in cooperation with Strasbourg area's "Council of Churches", headed by the Christian Catholic ArchBishop Mgr. Grallet, Together with other Religious Leaders, etc., Earlier this Month, at the prestigious "ENA" Higher School of France's Public Administration's Senior Officials, where "Eurofora" had been invited.

Obviously, such an Idea, could also Alleviate Fears of some about alleged attempts to Impose a so-called rampant "Islamisation", since the main Aim would be, Not to let an Ideology Spread itself under Brutal Threats, to the Expense of Others, but, the Contrary, to strive to Build something in Common to all Religions and/or Free Thinkers, that would participate to such a joint endeavour.


Moreover, nowadays, both the concrete, astonishing example of even ...Libanese Hezbolah and Iranian Shiites Volunteers, joining Syrian President Bashar Assad, (a Muslim Politician in the Middle-Eastern Country which still Hosts, comparatively, the Greatest Percentage of Christians), in a Fight against Al Quaida offsprings such as ISIL or Al Nusra and other such Islamist Extremist, Deadly Armed Gangs, as well as Iraqi Government's mainly largely Shiite Armed Forces, Both aided, (as well as American and/or Russian Forces), in that purpose, also by Kurdish Fighters in Syria and in Iraq, added to Various Muslim People fallen Victims of indiscriminate ISIL Terrorist Attacks from Yemen, Iraq and Syria or Turkey, until even inside Europe itself, recently, Killed side to side with a Majority of Christian, Jewish and/or other People independently of their various Beliefs, clearly indicates that the Real Issue is, in Fact, quite Different and much Wider, than those who Hide themselves Behind such atrociously InHuman, Barbaric Islamic Terrorists cowardly aggressing even innocent and defenseless Civilians (Women, Children and Elders included), would pretend...

New Plan revealed during EU Parliament's session and while Strasbourg's Unified University was inaugurated, (biggest in France, aiming at EU links).

 
EuroDistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau's dynamics were boosted by a key Franco-German meeting during EU Parliament's session here, which anounced a swift towards ambitious European aims : To become a showcase for concrete achievements of European Cooperation that benefit Citizens' everyday life and Economy, while also developing a Culture able to serve and stimulate European Organizations' political activities.

With measures to be taken in 2009, Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict should become EU's new "Metropolitan area" in the Decade 2010-2020, at the heart of Europe in the performant "OberRhein" region, a Franco-German Expert's Report anounced.

- "Defend European Institutions, and in particular EU Parliament" is a key point of the 2009 Report's threefold focus on "Infrastructures"' economy and quality, "Citizens' everyday life", and "Cultural and Political influence".

According to a Draft Statute, France and Germany agree that "an undeniable element of EuroDistrict's image" should be "Strasbourg's status, as Capital of a Democratic and Parliamentarian Europe".

    After parallel and joint meetings at EU Parliament, French and German Ministers for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE and Gunter GLOSER, started working with representatives of Local and Regional Authorities from both sides at Strasbourg's Historic Town Hall, Place Broglie, for the 2009 Monitoring of EuroDistrict "Strasbourg-Ortenau, during which was published an important Experts' Strategic Study with proposals on how to develop it in the Decade 2010-2020.

    Introducing the 1st Experts' Report on "EuroDistrict" at a moment when it needs "New Ideas" as food for thought, Strasbourg's Mayor, Senator Roland RIES said that "a special Status" should allow "Citizens to share Infrastructures and a common European project", in agreement with his collegue, Mayor of Kehl and German spokesperson for EuroDisctrict, Dr. Gunther PETRY, who focused mainly on the useful role of "Local" authorities in "concrete" achievements.

    - Together with "facilitating Citizens' everyday life", "our countries have also a Political aim", which needs to find "New Forms of Cooperation", said German Minister for EU affairs, Gunter GLOSER. According to a "Subsidiarity principle", which starts from a smaller level, leaving to a bigger entity what it cannot achieve alone, EuroDistict should be the "1st level" in a "Concentric" schema, he added.

    - In fact, "it's a question of Europe's credibility : EuroDistrict must prove that Franco-German cooperation gives results", with "concrete achievements", said the new French Minister for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE. Now, we "must advance further" : There is both "Local and National support" to make of Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "an example on what Europe must do in the Future if it wants to be credible in Citizens' eyes".

    - "Our Mission was to find the region's Potential of the region, "and search adequate Measures to use and develop it"; said German Expert Dr. Erwin VETTER. A main proposal is to "create a New Center for EU Competences", where everything should be concentrated : EuroDistrict, EuroCorps, EuroBest, etc : All in one area, while also linking Airports and other means of Transport, Culture, Education, Science and Research, etc. in order "to create 1 Metropolitan area" before 2020, he anounced.

    - With imagination and organisation "we tried to marry the French and German spirit", added French Expert Bernard COTTIN. He underlined "two points" :  - "In their Everyday Life, Citizens should feel that they are living in One Common Area", (fex. on Phones, Hospitals, Retirement, etc). But EuroDistrict should have also a "Cultural Dimension" : "Strasbourg, had been a little-bit left behind by both countries in the past, but must now find a New dynamic Momentum, at the Heart of Europe, strengthening its Cultural atous and becoming Multi-Cultural, in order to attain a European Dimension and develop the European Institutions", he concluded.

    Symbolically, both Mayors of Strasbourg and Kehl, Ries and Petry, gave to Ministers Gloser and Le Maire as a Gift two Books on Rhine River : Stylicised by both Logos chosen for "EuroDistrict" (as body of a flower), and for Strasbourg's new, Unified University, "UniStra", (as a long "S"), Rhine river came at the focus this week in Strasbourg, headquarters also of the oldest European Organisation : The Committee on Rhine's Navigation.. Meanwhile, Le Maire switched over from German (that he speaks fluently) to French, echoed, the other way round, by Gloser, who also understands French...

The 2009 REPORT :
---------------------------------
eurodistrict_experts_report_handout_400
 
Experts' proposals for EuroDistrict's Legal status is to start in 2009 with a "European Group for Transborder Cooperation", and "replace it, when possible, .. with an Original Form" of a new legal entity.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Citizens' oriented measures include to facilitate "acces to Health", "Mobile Phones", "Transborder Workers"', "School exchanges", etc., and other measures interesting Citizens, as f.ex. the creation of "Common Hospitals or Rescue centers", etc. Already, an agreement on "Urgent Medical Care" will be signed on February 10.

As "Economic Capital" of one of EU's most performant areas, known as "Ober-Rhein Metropolitan Region" ("superior Rhine" area), Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "should also develop its role of European Cultural and Political Capital, Symbol of Franco-German entente and of a Democratic Europe", Experts' Report concludes.

This goes well beyond developping Bi-linguism, transbrorder Training and "systematic" rapprochment of both Cultures (in Cinema, Theater, Music, etc).

It adds a progressive transfert in EuroDistrict of "elements of the Franco-German Brigade", close to "EuroCorps" Headquarters, and culminates with the promotion of European institutions (see above).

The Report also proposes to launch an "initiative" for "EU Parliament's unique Headquarters", developing Strasbourg's attractiveness vis-a-vis MEPs and staff.

It also includes the development of "a Research and Higher Education pole", among French, German and Swiss partners, "linked with Strabourg's new; Unified University" and "Ortenau's HochSchulen"

It's not a coincidence that this same week was inaugurated Strasbourg's Unified University : - "UniStra" becomes the Biggest in France, (with more than 42.000 students, 5.200 staff, a brand new "European Doctoral College", some 100 Research centers, and a Capital of more than 400 million €  from the State), aiming to create closer links with nearby German and Swiss Universities, fex. Karlsruhe, Fribourg, Stutgard, Bale, etc, as French Minister for Scientific Research and Higher Education, Valerie PECRESSE advised.

(See other, related News, already sent to interested "EuroFora"s subscribers and donors, which will be also posted at the Website asap).

Last but not least :  Non-believers should meditate on the fact that all this was symbolically made in the same Strasbourg Historic Town Hall's room where even the establishement of Council of Europe was decided, 60 years back in 1949...

Polls
