*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- After even Today's explicit Confirmation, by Confession of the Culprit himself, that the Knife Attack which Targetted and Killed 1 and Wounded 6 Civilian Victims (including in Life-Threatening situation, including 2 Young Girls and an Old Man, etc) by a self-styled so-called "Asylum Seeker" from the Middle East, earlier  this Month in Hamburg, crying "Allah-Akbar" and aggressing People at Random, according to several Eye-Witnesses, was, indeed, committed with Islamist Terrorist Aims, many Convergent Key Facts clearly show that, Recently, a Big, Wide and Dangerous Gap in States' Duty to Protect EU Citizens' Lives, emerged and is still Spreading, even at the Heart of Europe, more and more Terrorized by the Repetition of such UnPrecedended but avoidable Tragedies.

The Main point is that the Hamburg Killer was already Known for having been Dangerously Radicalized recently towards Islamist Extremism (including by Visiting a Controversial Mosque in Hamburg), but, even if he did Not have Any Personal Link in Germany, (he didn't even Speak at all the Language of the Country, where he had just arrived after being Refused in Norway), and Despite the Fact that his Demand for Asylum had been Rejected, without lodging any Appeal, so that, normaly, he should either Leave that EU Country, or be Expulsed, Nevertheless, he was Scandalously let Free to Stay, Move, violently Attack and cowardly Kill and Wound innocent Civilian People in Markets and at the Street, without the competent Public Authorities doing practically anything to prevent that, (as various EU Citizens or Politicians already Denounced).

A Similar situation was, mutatis-mutandis, found also in the case of anOther recent Mass Murderer in Berlin's Christmas Market, who Cowardly Targetted and Killed at least 12 innocent Civilian People (including a Deaf Young Girl, etc),  with a Heavy Truck, that he had Stolen from a Polish Driver, Murdering him earlier that same Day (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/berlinmassacreandrussianambassadormurderinturkey.html) : He was also known to have been Recently Radicalized towards Islamic Extremism, including by Visiting frequently a Turkish Mosque part of the Notorious and Controversial Turkish Network of DITIB, in fact controlled by the Foreign, Ankara's Government, which also Choses, Trains, Pays, and Appoints itself its "Imams" abroad, recently found even to systematicaly ...Spy various Citizens in Germany, provoking a wide-spread Scandal. Moreover his Asylum Demand had Not been Accepted too, but he was, nevertheless, Free, in practice, to still Stay in that important EU Country, (even despite reported accusations of serious Drug Traffick involvement, according to recent Police Reports)...

Such scandalous, Brutal Deadly Incidents were Topicaly Reminded, Earlier this Week also in France, where the New President, Emmanouel Macron, made a landmark Speech (against Divisions that seek to provoke ISIS' Terrorists in fact Ennemies of Humanity), at the 1st Anniversary (26 July 2017) of the cold-blood Murder of old Christian Piest, father Hamel, cowardly Attacked inside the Church, during the Holy Mass, and Killed with his throat cut by knife, by 2 Thugs, who Wounded also other Civilians among the Faithful, one very seriously on 2016 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchattackforeseen.html) :  At least one of those Brutal Coward Islamist Terrorists had been Known, him too, as Radicalized towards Islamist Extremism, and had even Visited Syria in the recent Past, while Informations about an Imminent Attack against a Christian Church in France had recently reached the Security Services . But, despite all that, again the future Killers had been left Free to stil Stay in France, and even Move around at their Town, including towards that Church...

Similar Fatal Security "Gaps" also in the case of a Turkish former "Jihadist" at ISIL-Occupied Syria, living around Strasbourg, not only Before, but even After his recent Return, and visiting a Turkish Mosque (with 2 Minarets, also Member of that notorious and Controversial DITIB Network : Comp. Supra) at a recently Islamized Suburb of the City (Meinau), who became one among the Cold-Blood Murderers targetting and Killing Many Dozens of Innocent Civilian People at the Mass Attacks by Islamist Terrorists on November 2015 in Paris, at "Bataclan" and other locations: He had been practically let Free to Stay and Move in France, (at least enough in order to Kill: See http://www.eurofora.net/brief/brief/strasbourgturkishmosquenetworkforparisdeadlyterrorist.html).

But it was the Recent 4 Knives, Cars, and Bomb Killings in the UK, (Three Times in London and One in Manchester)  which really Started to (indirectly but surely) Reveal what was really Going On, throughout almost all the EU, or, at least, in Most of it :


Indeed, after the case of a Somali Youngster (arrived via Norway, as the Hamburg Killer: Comp. Supra), who Brutally Attacked with a Knife 6 Civilian People, killing an aged American Woman and Wounding the rest, some very Seriously, Near the Brittish Museum, around Russel Square in London, on 2016 without the Local UK Police saying anything yet about his recent intense Islamization, that various Eye Witnesses as well as simple Web Searches (including by "Eurofora") revealed with many concrete Facts, (See, f.ex., among others, also: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lnopolicemanatlondonknifemassterrorattack.html),

 manchester_bomber_salman_ramadan_amedi__father_back_to_libya_400

came the Mass Bombing Attack against mainly Young Girls at a Music Concert in Manchester,  on May 2017, where a Libyan, Salman Ramadan Abedi, given Asylum and even Citizenship in the UK, visiting a Mosque in a converted Church given by the Socialist Municipality,

 manchester_islamist_bomber_was_in_mosque_from_converted_church_400

(whose Family had Returned to Libya, while he was Travelling back and forth, including in Turkey) cowardly Targetted and Killed 23 innocent Civilian People, including Children (as, f.ex. 8 years old girl Saffie Rose Roussos, from Cyprus):, and Wounded 250.

Meanwhile, 2 more Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks took place in London :

 khalid_masoud_islamist_killer_at_westminster_london_2017_400

On March 2017 Attack, by Car and Knife, at Westminster, a notoriously Extremist Islamist (Khalid Massoud, among various Names he used), revendicated by ISIS, cowardly Aggressed and Wounded 51 (Fifty one) unarmed People, Killing 5, in a Violent Aggression Acknowledged as "Islamist Terrorism" by the British Authorities, (Comp., f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchsavesfromislamicterror.html , etc).

This was closely Followed by the June 2017 Attacks at London Bridge, by 3 other Islamist Extremists (un of Pakistani and two of Morocco origin), who abused of a Van and Knives in order to Kill 8 and Wound 48 innocent, unarmed People.


 london_bridge_2017_islamist_terrorist_gang_murderers_trio_eurofora_patchwork_400

Their Chief, a Paki Extremist who had scandalously been Hired by London City Subway Public Transports, and Vainly Denounced Many Times to London Police for Dangerous Islamist Extremism (and even alleged links to Violent Terrorists), had already been Filmed and Published in British TV, Last Year (2016), while Leading a Group of integrist Muslims wearing Old Arab clothes to Pray in a London Public Park with an ISIL-like Flag, at a (premonitory) program named : - "The Jihadist next door" !

Brittish Prime Minister, (an Experienced former JHA Minister), Theresa May reportedly denounced "Tarrorism" inspired by an "Islamist Extremist" Ideology, which is a "Perversion of Islam".


>>> But the most Worrying point, (Comp. Supra), were subsequent Information, published in British and American Medias, that the real Reason for which such Brutal Criminals, most already known to be sharply Islamized Violent Extremists, had Not been Timely Prevented from Killing and Wounding so many innocent Civilian People, would rather be the Fact that the Total Number of such Dangerous Islamist Extremists in the UK had recently (particularly during the Latest 15- 20 Years : around 1997-2017) Grown up to such Huge Proportions, that it, allegedly, was practicaly Impossible to really Monitor all of them, continuously and in real time, by the competent Police/Security staff !...


 + If such an (obviously Unacceptable and Scandalous) Pretext, appeared First in the UK, only indirectly and reportedly (Comp. Supra), Nowadays, after the Latest Islamist Extremism-related Deadly Terrorist Attack in Hamburg (Germany : Comp. Supra), things became Harsher:


=> Now, it's, indeed, even Directly and Explicitly, that the Mayor of Hamburg, Grote, (a Socialist) openly Claimed that the Number of the (already Known) Dangerous Islamist Extremists residing in that City, (apparently "More than 800"), had recently become so Big, that the available Competent Authorities'  agents would be "Insufficient" in order to Saveguard and Guarantee Citizens' Safety by simply Monitoring all those key Suspects !


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


++ Even More Astonishing, since the Beginning of 2017, is the case of a Portorican origin Muslim Convert,  immigrant in the USA, who travelled from Alaska to Florida, in order to Kill, there, 5 innocent Civilian People and Wound another 6, by Firing on them with his Gun, inside the Fort Lauderdale Airport, during Obama's term of office, (early January 2017).

Several Independent Investigators found soon concrete Web a.o. evidence that the Culprit had, indeed, been intensively Islamized, already a Long Time ago, even if he had grown a Beard, resided Near a Mosque, and revealed a Violent Behavior recently, while, during his 1st Hearing in Court, soon after his Crime, he reportedly Acknowledged Islamist Motivations : The Deadly Shooter confessed that he was "Inspired by ISIS", acted "on Behalf" of ISIS, and had also Chatted on the Web with "Jihadists" Plotting Attacks, FBI Agents told the Court.


>>> But, most Important, he had already Addressed himself to FBI Services, Earlier in Alaska, Explicitly Warning them that he had been Watching ISIS' Propaganda Videos, Chatted in the Web with Islamist Extremists, including about Terrorist acts, and Felt Pushed to Commit Deadly Terrorist Crimes asap., including with his Gun, that he had Given to the Authorities !


=> Nevertheless, astonishingly, Obama's US Authorities, after ordering only a Local "Mental" Test, had soon Droped that case, Let him Go Free and withOut any Surveillance, and even ...Returned Back his Gun (that he used to Kill, a few Weeks Later)..

*** All these, Various but Converging Cases, (to which could be Added also several More such Affairs, practically Designing all Europe's Map, plus USA, etc.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/terrorismremindsrealeurope.html),

 20152017_islamist_terrorism_massacres_design_europes_map_eurofora_400

clearly Reveal a Blatant and Dangerous Security "Gap", Responsible for a Dangerous Failure to Protect Citizens' Lives even from Repeated and Growing Deadly Terrorist Attacks by Islamist Extremists, most of which, apparently, could and should have been Prevented.

 

 part__of_2016__2017_islamist_terrorism_massacres_the_sunuk_400_01


=> At least 4 key Questions are Raised, by all these Facts (and much More, revealing such Surprising Cases) :


(A) Who, and Why, lets so many Individuals be "Radicalized" in "Islamism" Heading towards Terrorism, and Widely Spread an "Extremist" and Dangerously Violent "Ideology", which has  already been Proven, Many Times, Deadly ?



(B) By Whom, and Why, are they, practically let Free to Kill ? (Some among the above mentioned concret Examples, are Scandalous, in this regard: Comp. Supra. + See also Infra).

 

(C) If even Rejected Asylum Seekers, withOut any Relation to a European Country, and Knowingly Islamized up to a Dangerous Extremism, are, in fact, left Free to Stay and Circulate inside Europe, among Defenseless Civilian European Citizens, as possible Targets of Deadly Attacks at any moment, (and something, mutatis-mutandis  Similar occured in Obama's era USA, with that Islamist Terrorist Killer who had Vainly Warned the FBI himself Beforehand: Comp. Supra), then, isn't the Danger obviously Too Big,  - and the Responsibility of those who provoke or let such Scandals multiply, Too Heavy !

 

(D) How Many More innocent Civilian Victims would have been Killed, if Citizens (f.ex. some Tunisians, in Hamburg's case) had Not Reacted themselves and Fought Back, (as well as Followed the Killer, Showing to the Police where he was going to hide/escape) ?

 

Indeed, even if such Dangerous potential Aggressors, Manipulated by a so-called "Islamist Extremism", might already exist inside the EU, the USA, Russia, etc., (as several UK Medias reported, and even Hamburg's Mayor claimed nowadays: Comp. Supra), then, Why all those Controversial and/or Suspect Mosques are still let Free to "Mushroom" almost everywhere  and Multiply, even inside Europe and the USA, during the Last 15-20 Years ? And Why all those Top European Politicians who had Recently proposed a Series of Concrete Security Measures to take against Dangerous Islamist Extremists, were all Droped, even withOut any serious Public Debate ?

 

-----------------------------------
HIGGINS' 2016 INTW.
-------------------------------------


+ As long as all these Topical and Key, Concrete Questions (Based on the above-Mentioned Facts, and much More), still remain UnAnswered, inevitably, the Stern Warnings and worrying Denonciations made by certain Critical People such as, f.ex., USA's White House new National Security Council's Director for Strategic Planning (under New US President Don Trump), Rich Higgins, (a former Defense Official and Lincoln Fellow, Clairmont Institute), f.ex. in an Interview already Published as Early as since July 2016 :


- In a Long Video Press Interview (which can be found here : http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/02/former-dod-official-warns-america-is-on-the-wrong-track-to-fighting-war-on-terror-video/   + http://players.brightcove.net/5107476400001/B1xUkhW8i_default/index.html?videoId=5229222259001
), Higgins makes  the following Main Points :

 usa_terrorpolitical_warfare_linked_the_higgins_review_v._dit_400

 

- In particular, the former DoD and recently White House Official  Warns about a very probable Complicity between some "Deep State" Bureaucrats and/or so-called "Globalists", with some apparently "Leftist" and mainly "Islamist" Extremists.


- He also Denounces an overall "Warfare" policy, which includes Both "Violent" and "Ideological" tools, coherently "Weaponized" against Countries Targetted and Attacked by Islamist Terrorism recently.


- A most Important part of such a Strategy acting as an "Ennemy", is to Attack Free Speech and Press Freedom, in order to Muzzle key Critical Voices, as well as to Deprive even Citizens from really Independent Viewpoints (including by Imposing some Excessive versions of so-called "Islamophobia" Pretext, recently), and/or any other Independent Means to Resist or React and Fight Back against Aggressors and/or their Instigators, so that all this would Weaken and ultimately Risk to Destroy the Democratic Critical Thinking of the "Civilisation" developed since the Enlightnment (18th AC) Century, (that Higgings names "Western", as US President Don Trump also did, at least partly, in his landmark Speech, at the Beginning of July 2017, in Poland, at the eve of Hamburg's "G-20" Summit).


Even if some might like to Dismiss such very Critical Hypothesis, as that of Higgin's stern Warning, they couldNot do so, (at least Not in a Convincing way), withOut having, previously, at least Found and Given some Crystal-Clear and plausible Answers to the Above-Mentioned 4 main Questions, raised by all those Recent Cases of Deadly islamist Terrorist Attacks in Europe, and even in the USA, which, apparently, Could and should have been Prevented (Comp. Supra).-

People in Europe and the World expect from CoE to make a succes of its "Monitoring" for Human Rights and Democracy, despite difficulties, said Finland's President Tarja Halonen to "EuroFora" at a crucial moment for the mecanism built 15 years ago by the paneuropean organization which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2009.

Halonen, known as "Mother" of CoE's "Monitoring" mecanism, a long-time MEP and former Foreign Minister before becoming Finland's President, holds a long experience in the mattter, after also serving twice as CoE and EU Chairwoman in the past. That's why she is well placed to judge how CoE's "monitoring" should deal today with some crucial issues of importance both to CoE and to the EU.

The move came just a Month before a crucial, last visit to Turkey, scheduled for June, by the President of CoE''s "Monitoring" Committee, Ukranian MEP Serge Holovaty, to finalize his Report on Ankara, the CoE Member State with the longest Monitoring procedure. From its results depends its overall credibility.

This is a Test-case, because, in fact, it's in order to avoid Sanctions threatened against Turkey by a CoE's Assembly's April 1995 Resolution for grave Human Rights violations, Democracy gaps, the continuing Military Occupation in Cyprus, the unresolved Kurdish problem, Aegean differend with Greece, etc., that MEPs decided to create, for the 1st time on April 1996, a "Monitoring" proces, allegedly destinated to check, without excluding Countries who did not fulfill all CoE's standards.

In the Past, the obliged withdrawal of Greece's Military regime and of its "Civil" cover-up out of the CoE had helped bring back Democracy in 1974. But, on the contrary, since April 1996, the idea was to "monitor" Human Rights' respect while keeping most concerned Countries inside the CoE. After Turkey's oldest example, this was extended also to several former "Eastern" European Countries, even if CoE's Assembly has imposed to some of them (fex. Ukraine, Russia, etc., after Belarus, Serbia, etc) various "Sanctions", that Ankara always avoided. Curiously more succesful even than .. USA itself, (a CoE "Observer" since 1995), which has been at least threatened with sanctions some years ago..

EU-effects of CoE's Monitoring process became obvious between 2001-2008, since the "closure" of this procedure, when CoE felt that a Country had met most of its Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law obligations, (i.e. the "Copenhagen Criteria" for the EU), helped trigger Negotiations with the EU for "Accession" or other closer relations : This occured already before the 2004 and 2007 EU Enlargements to former "Eastern" European Countries, as well as for the commencement of "accession" negotiations with Croatia, and of "open-ended" negotiations with Turkey in 2005.

    But a stricking new development are Holovaty's recent findings that on core Human Rights issues as Torture and Freedom of Expression, Turkey, even "5 Years after" CoE closed its "Monitoring", back in 2004, inciting EU to start accession Negotiations in 2005, still presents grave problems.

    His findings are of crucial importance after a 2008 CoE Resolution called, "if need be", to "seriously consider the possibility of Re-Opening the Monitoring procedure for Turkey" : A move which might affect Ankara's controversial EU bid, since EU Accession Negotiations are based on the Hypothesis that the Candidate fullfils the "Copenhagen Criteria" (See above)..
-------------------------
    Holovaty expressed his will to check  "Matters still Outstanding" and  those that he "didn't have an opportunity to discuss" at an earlier visit this year, "in order to discuss the more complex issues in greater depth", at his forthcoming New Visit to Ankara, before the December 2009 EU Summit.  This is all based on the 2004 CoE Resolution which stresses that, CoE "will continue.. post-monitoring Dialogue with the Turkish authorities,...in addition to a 12-points list,..and on any Other Matter that might arise in connection with Turkey’s Obligations as a CoE member state".

    CoE's Resolution also asks  from Turkey "to secure the proper Implementation of Judgements, particularly in the Cyprus v. Turkey InterState case", of 2001, which concerns also the plight of many Hundreds of MISSING People. It adds Turkey's obligations to "execute" ECHR's Judgements in the Loizidou case,..and in particular adopt General Measures to avoid repetition or continuation of Violations found by the Court" to the detriment of Refugees.

    Nevertheless, Holovaty said to "EuroFora" that "MISSING" persons,"might be included" and cannot be excluded, but he has yet to examine the situation "to find out  which issues will be raised" to the Turkish Government.

    Therefore, "EuroFora" asked Halonen, as the Historic "Mother" of CoE's Monitoring mecanism, if she thought that, "whenever there are grave Human Rights Violations, as fex. "MISSING" persons, attested even by ECHR's judgements, they should be always checked by a Monitoring process. Or could they be forgotten ?"
    
     - "We (CoE) must be, at the same time, Fair, Realistic, but not in the mind that "now we have Forgotten", etc., replied to "EuroFora"'s question Halonen, speaking as a matter of general principle.

    - "When we think of those People that are suffering from the lack of Democracy, of Human Rights, and of the Rule of Law", "we should find a base on how to deal with the (Monitoring) system more rapidly"', she stressed.

    - "Sometimes it's very difficult to combine Transparency and Effectivenes together, particularly in this specific case", she went on to say. But, "I have not found a (CoE Member) Country who could be insensitive in this sens", Halonen answered concerning grave Human Rights violations attested by the ECHR.

    - "I have no ready-made answer. I have the expectations that you, in the CoE, will, step by step, find the different types of the monitoring systems."

    Also "because this is a part of the UN's Post-Conflict system, (fex. when it comes to Cyprus' MISSING persons), and it's a more Global system". So that, "If we make a succes in Europe, the others will follow", throughout the World.  "But they expect that we (Europe) are this opportunity, this Opportunity to make a Succes", Halonen concluded.

    In addition, she advised to extend CoE's Monitoring to all its 47 Member States, "because, as long as we hear that, all these monitoring systems are "OK for the neighbor, but not for me", "it's very difficult" to understand. Something which could make easier to Compare...

    Finnish MEP Jaako Laakso, former CoE Rapporteur on the Occupied Territories of Cyprus and one of the 5 Signatories of the Historic CoE's call to create the "MONITORING" mecanism since 1996, was more specific :  - "We (CoE Assembly) have to find a way for the issue of Cyprus' MISSING People to be better followed", he stressed, anouncing his intention to "speak to Mr. Holovaty" about that. "There might be also other ways", added Laakso.

    - The 2008 "Year had been a very Bad one for Turkey with regard to Human Rights in general, and Freedom of Expression in particular", denounced, meanwhile, Holovaty's preliminary Post-Monitoringh Draft Report by Holovaty, published by the CoE on April 2009.

    "Amnesty International believes that freedom of expression is not guaranteed given the various articles of the Criminal Code that restrict it. .. "For example, 1,300 Websites are said to have been closed down by the (Turkish) authorities in 2008" ! While "the new Turkish Criminal Code was used to bring a total of 1,072 proceedings between June 2005 and April 2008, and led to the conviction of 192 people", for expressing views. "Representatives of the Özgür Gündem newspaper, which specialises in Kurdish affairs, ..complained about Numerous Attacks on their Freedom of Expression ...as was everyone who advocated a settlement to the question by means other than the intervention of the army" "According to their figures, 19 Newspapers had been suspended 43 times between 4 August 2006 and 4 November 2008" !...

    Moreover, on 2008,  CoE's "Ministers adopted its 4rth Resolution on the execution of the judgments of the ECHR, ...and outstanding issues regarding 175 Judgements and decisions relating to Turkey delivered between 1996 and 2008...  concerning Deaths resulting from the excessive use of force by members of the Security forces, the failure to protect the right to life, the DIisappearance and/or death of individuals, Ill-Treatment and the Destruction of property". CoE's " Ministers urged the Turkish authorities ...to ensure that members of Security forces of all ranks can be prosecuted without administrative
authorisation" for "serious crimes". Holovaty reminded.

"Nonetheless", Holovaty heard anew of "Several cases of Violence committed last year (2008) by the (Turkish) security forces". Amnesty International speaks of Many Cases of ill-treatment and Torture in the prisons and by the police". "Including, fex."'the death of Engin Ceber, a young man of 29 who died on October 2008 as a result of the TORTURE allegedly inflicted on him by police officers, prison staff and members of the gendarmerie. He was part of a group of people arrested on September 2008 during a demonstration and Press Conference in Istanbul'. Proceedings against suspects are "on-going" in this case.

- " I therefore noted an Obvious Contradiction between the Government’s stated “zero tolerance” policy.... of Torture and other forms of ill-treatment, and the different testimonies given", denounced CoE's Rapporteur.  Turkish "authorities must make considerable efforts to guarantee that proper investigations are carried out into allegations of abuses by members of the security forces and that perpetrators are effectively punished" "In this respect, I have requested detailed Statistics on the number of Investigations, acquittals and convictions in cases involving allegations of abuse in order to show the positive impact of the measures taken to date", Holovaty said, repeating a permanently unsatisfied CoE's demand to Turkey since a Decade...

    - "The Political Crisis that shook the country in the spring of 2008 highlighted the Weaknesses of the (Turkish) Constitution", which comes from the Military regime of 1982, "and the Urgent Need of Reforms", stressed from the outset CoE's Rapporteur in 2009. In particular, "the ...Democratic functioning of state institutions, including the independence of the judicial system, are crucial", he observes.

    But, "the Electoral  system and the ways in which it is circumvented do not appear to give those elected complete Legitimacy, and tend to pervert the course of direct universal suffrage", denounces Holovaty, observing that, even 5 Years later, Turkey did not yet change the 10% nationwide Threshold for a party to take any seat, which is "far higher" than the "3%" maximum in Europe and already condemned as contrary to European Standards by the CoE.

    + Moreover, EU Parliament's 2009 Report on Turkey, drafted by Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten and adopted in Strasbourg on March, expresses "Concern over the Failure of the (Turkish) Judiciary to prosecute cases of Torture and Ill-treatment, the Number of which is Growing". EU also "is concerned about continuing Hostility and Violence against Minorities" in Turkey. It also "calls on the Turkish Government to launch, as a matter of Priority, a Political Initiatve favouring a lasting Settlement of the Kurdish issue, (while "condemning violence.. and terrorist groups"). EU "regrets that No progress has been made on establishing full, systematic Civilian suprevisory functions over the (Turkish) Military".

    The final results of Holovaty's 2nd and last visit to Turkley will be known later this year, and, at any case, before EU's December 2009 Summit.

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 ?
