*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...

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".
----------------------------

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
