 pe_vote_on_turkey_fesolution_19_may_2021_400

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- For the 1st Time since long, MEPs were much More Opposed to Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, asking to immediately Drop it, than to EU Funds for Ankara, and Critics were Boosted even Further by recent Kidnappings +Killing of Christians,  added to Bombardments of North-Iraq Civilians, even of Churches, after an Exceptional Peak of Human Rights/Democracy Violations, Military Invasions/Occupations, and Aggressions/Bullying against EU Member States Key for European Energy Resources in South/Eastern Mediterranean, as it results from the Votes on EU Parliament's latest Report on EU-Turkey relations, which had Concluded by soberly calling EU Commission and Council to, at last, officialy Revise an Old and OutDated 2000-2005 stance, particularly if Ankara does Not Soon radicaly Change its overall attitude.

=> Thus, in Fact, such overall Mouvements clearly reveal that Europeans are more and more Motivated by Deeply rooted and Substantial Reasons, in their, Already well-Established (Since 2005-2007/2009+ "No" to EU-Referenda and Elections in Key EU Countries as France, Germany, etc., Followed on 2009-2016 even by Many UK's pro-BREXIT Voters), and Currently Spreading Larger, Firm Opposition against Turkey's controversial and UnPopular EU bid,

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

 - Indeed, already 126 MEPs Voted "For" (98) or Abstained (28) on a Critical Amendment "Calling" the EU "to Terminate All Funding to Turkey", and, "Furthermore ...to Stop all EIB Loans to Turkey" Now.

         With a Wide Scope, the move Included Funds from the so-called "Pre-<Accession" (sic !), the "Multiannual Financial Framework", and even "the EU-Turkey action Plan on Migration", (an Unprecedented, mukti-Billions € full Grants Each Year to Ankara, Notoriously usurpated by Turkey on 2016, inside a Brussels City Lockdowned by a series of Deadly Islamist Terrorists' Attacks Cowardly Targeting Civilians, and a Record-High "Tsunami" of more than 1,5 Million Mass Asylum Seekers and Irregular Migrants illegaly Tresspassing into the EU through Turkey and its Smugglers, which openly "Blackmailed" the EU, then, at least Until Hungary first, Followed by other Key European Countries started to Protect their Borders, Drasticaly Reducing such InFlows : See Dated Facts f.ex. at : ... + ..., etc).

    - MEPs' Amendment "Underlined that Turkey is Using the Facility for Refugees to challenge and Blackmail the EU and its Member States, in order to obtain some leverage for political, economic or military Concessions, to justify its Aggressive behaviour towards the EU Member States, and to pursue its foreign policy Ambitions". (They forgot, however, the Basic Fact that Turkey, First of all, Profits from a blatant and cynical, massive over-Exploitation of Millions of captive Immigrants, landlocked at its Borders, mostly living in unhealthy, sometims deadly, closed "Camps", encircled by Turkish Soldiers and several times Beaten by Guards and/or the Army, as early videos an/or testimonies showed).

    + Moreover, those MEPs "reiterate(d) that the EU should definitively Stop considering a Modernisation of the EU-Turkey Customs Union, also taking nto account that the continuous Violations of Human rights and fundamental Freedoms by the Erdogan regime would make any alleged strong Conditionality on those aspects Impossibleto be fulfilled". Therefore they "Aske(d)" also "for the Suspension of the EU-Turkey Customs Union agreement, which entered into force on 31 December 1995". Indeed, that 1995, very Controversial event occured amidst ECHR 1st revelations about Grave "InHuman/Degrading Treatments" in Turkey, f.ex. the Vold-blood Murder (by GunShots) of a Handicaped former Political Prisoner in Turkish Jails, who had Denounced Torture provoking the loss pf the uf one opf its Hands, and Refused to Obey to Threats asking him to Withdraw his Lawsuit against Ankara lodged to Strasburg's Paneuropean Court ("Aksoy" vase), but Also the Brutal Expulsion of a Kurdish Family from its Home and Fields by Turkish Soldiers who throwed even Children to the Road and Destroyed the Victims' Livelihood, Obliging them to be Displaced, by Foot, to Far-away Izmir (ex-Smyrne), where they lived at Santyutowns in Horrible Conditions of Heavy Poverty, ("Akdivar" case). In Addition, the Entry into force of that Controversial ">EU-Turkey Customs Union", from January 1996, was Marked by the Brutal Crushing of the Head and Killing of a Young Dissident by the Turkish Police, after a Protest in a Cemetery for Deaths of HungerStrikes among ill-treated Political Prisoners, ("Goctepe" case).

    Otherwise, inevitably, EU would Risk to practicaly be Suspected to ...Profit and become Accomplice, in fact, in Turkey's over-Exploitation of Millions of Immigrants : Something that, obviously, Only some "Fake Europeans" deprived of Conscience might, perhaps, accept, But Never any "Real Europeans" and/or really Human Rights and Freedom-Loving People !

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

    + But More (125) MEPs mainly Voted "For" (115) or Abstained (tO) on anOther, "Heavier" and Sharper Amendement, "Stressing ...that ....Turkey’s Accession negotiations have ... come to a StandStill;", and "Calling ...to unconditionally and irrevocably Tterminate all Negotiations regarding Turkey’s Accession to the EU", as it ...should ... Not become a Member of the EU".

    Among the Many Reasons cited for that is Mainly the Fact that "Turkey is not a European Country, and does Not Act in accordance with European Values, particularly those aimed at preserving a Peaceful Europe". Indeed, "the Evidence of the Facts" –as "also the continuous countless Provocations towards Member States, the Aggressive behaviour in the Mediterranean, the Instrumentalisation of Refugees (f.ex. on 2015-2016+ through the Aegean Sea, and 2020 via Evros River at Northern Greece, etc) "and the Threat of Unbearable Migratory Pressure – has now Turned the European Hope of starting to build a ‘Positive dynamic’ with Turkey, ..., into an  Utopian exercise" , those MEPs Warned today...

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

    ++ Surprizingly, an Even much Greater Number of MEPs (214 MEPs, i.e. 64 "No" and 150 "Abstentions") Refused to Back the Final EU Parliament's Resolution on Turkey, which did Not Ask for an Immediate Stop to Turkey's Controversial and UnPopular EU Bid, (See Infra).

    >>> The Cause seems to be a Legitimate Frustration of Many MEP, from Various Political Groups, when anOther Critical Amendment, against Recent "Kiodnappings" and even "Murder" of "Christians" , "underlying the Increase in Discrimination Against Christians in Turkey",  drew "particular Attention f.ex. to the cases of Simoni Diril, who was Kidnapped and Murdered, and Hurmuz Diril, who was (also) kidnapped and is Missing,", while their "cases ...are still Not being Investigated by the Turkish Authorities", despite gatting as much as ...325 Votes of MEPs, nevertheless, was finaly droped because of a comparatively Small Difference of Only 20 MEPs (i.e.345 "Against")...

    The Couple of Simoni and Hurmuz Diril had been Initialy found "Missing" by their Son, from Istanbul, and were the Last Assyrian Christians (the Oldest in the World) still living near Turkey's Borders to Syria/Iraq, etc. + Moreover, almost at the Same Time, Ankara's Military reportedly "Bombarded" Many other Christian Civilian People, hit even a Church, etc., inside Iraq, where they had seeked Refuge from previous Aggressions, to the point that several Organisations, (including the "Great Orient" mainly of France, operating since 1860, etc), Asked the EU to Pursue Turkey for "War Crimes", (in a Press Release communicated to "Eurofora"), after such Brutal Attacks, Hitting many Civilian People at Villages of Neighbouring Countries, as Iraq, that Even Pope Francis had tried to Dissuade with his Recent Trip to that Country, and particularly Near the Areas Now Hit by the Turkish Bombs, (See relevant "Eurofora"'s Publications, then, at: ... + ..., etc).

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

    +++ Nevertheless, EU Parliament's Majority at least Adopted, in fine, a Critical Resolution on Turkey which Asks for "the Formal Suspension of Accession Negotiationns with Turkey, in order ...to Review ...the Appropriateness of the Current Framework (of Ankara's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid), and its Possibility to Function, Or, if Necessary, to Explore possible New Models for Future Relationsé", (i.e. Out of the EU, f.ex. via some kind of Cooperations, etc), as Voted 480 MEPs from all Mainstream and Pro-European Groups, for the 1st Time in History.

    Such a Move must be done "If the current Negative Trend (concerning Turkey's Behavior)is Not, Urgently and Consistently, Reversed" asap, EU Parliament specified, (provoking Diplomatic Protests from Ankara).

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

    ++++ => At any case, for EU Parliament, sit's clear that Ankara's "Unacceptable Provocations (Comp. Supra).... Should Not be Rewarded by Continuing EndLess and PointLess Accession Negotiations with Turkey", stressed anOther Amendment, surprizingly Adopted by a Big Majority of 557 MEPs from All Groups, Voting "Yes", (Against Only 101 "No"), Even ikf it had been Tabled, initialy, by the Rightists of the "ID" Group !

    >>> Significantly, this was one of The Most Popular Amendments adopted by EU Parliament Today, (with even More Votes than the overall Resolution itself : Comp. Supra)...

 

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

=>  Brief OverView (on relevant Past + Future) :

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

    >>> Concerning that EU Parliament's call to consider anOther, "Model of Relations" between EU and Turkey, officially and Definitevely Droping the Controversial and UnPopular EU Accession Procedure, (Comp. Supra), among various other Points, it"s Interesting to know How that (a priori Incredible) Proposal was Initiated, around thz End of the 1990ies :

    - During an Exceptionaly Important and semi-Confidential  EU - USA collective Meeting then, in the sidelines of EU Parliament's Plenary in Strasbourg, that "Eurofora"s co-Founder was Covering, suddenly, a "Paper" from the Turkish Government was Distributed.

    EU - Turkey relations were, then, Hampered by a quasi-Total Blockade of almost All EU Funding programs for Ankara, Because of Serious and massive Violations of Human Rights and Democatic principles, War Threats against EU Member Greece, the persisting Military Invasion and Occupation of Cyprus by Ankara's Army, the Kurdish Problem, Turkey's Refusal to Recognize the Armenian Genocide, etc. In Consequence, Brussels' Business Lobbyists risked to see many Millions $ to "Disappear" for them, and be Returned Back to EU Member States, since the End of the 1990 Decade was Approaching, withOut having managed to Spend them...

    At that Crucial Moment, Turkey asked for "a New (Funding) Program" from the EU, which could Not be Blocked as easily as all the others, on Pretext of a New Relation" with the EU, which was that Scandalous and Crazy Idea (UnThinkable then) of Ankara's so-called "Accession" process into the EU !

    After the Non-Elucidated Brutal Killing of Critical Greek Minister for EU Affairs, Yanos Kranidiotes (also of Cypriot Origin : See our relevant Articles Published then at "TCWeekly" and/or "MPAgency")), the Massive Killings of Tens of Thousands of Poor People in Turkey when their Scandalously Badly-Build Houses were Demolished by an Exceptionaly Big Earthquake near Istanbul/Constantinople, apparently Provoked by an UnderSea Drilling Deep inside the Bosphorus and Dardanellia Straights, (See our relevant Articles then at "MPAgency" and/or Other Newspapers, etc)^, added to several Exceptional Political Changes, Aggressions and/or Oppression of Critical Journaalists, the Strange Marginalisation even of French Minister for EU Affairs, afterwards Top MEP Alain Lamassoure, as he Denounced himself Later, (etc), as it's well Known, the December 1999 EU Summit at Helsinki Decided to Accept Turkey's EU Candidacy, and the Negotiations' Procedure Officialy Started on 2004.

    But the Popular and Political Struggles Against such a blattant Betrayal even of the most Elementary Principles and Values of the European Idea, (mainly by some "Fake Europeans" as the UnPopular former UK Prime Minister "Bliar", etc), Started to Reverse that Trend, through 3 "No" to EU-Referenda (in France, the Neherlands and Ireland: 2005-2007), key Elections (in France, Germany, Greece, and Other Key Countries, as well as in EU Parliament: 2005-2009), etc., Followed even by "BREXIT" (2016) and Turkey going Astray in a Hamoc (Kurds' Massacres, Psedo-"Putch" of 6 Hours, Exploited as Pretext for Hundreds of Thousands of Arrests, Torture, Killings and Lynching, Firing of Judges, Universitarians, Journalists, Teachers, MPs and Mayors, even Military staff and Soldiers, etc, added to WarShips' Bullying against EU Members Greece and Cyprus' Energy Resources, Smuggling of More than 1,5 Million Mass "Asylum Seekers"/Irregular Migrants suddenly Tresspassing into the EU through Turkey, Military Invasions/Occupations and/or Deadly Attacks in Syria (Twice), Iraq, Libya, even Armenia, etc. : 2015-2021), as well as Many very Negative Polls among European People, Notoriously Hampered, and almost "Freezed" Ankara's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid, Nowadays.

    But, Meanwhile, UnPrecedented EU Funds, of Many Billions each Year, including Full Grants, are being Paid to that Turkish Regime..., (which had almost totaly Collapsed, already on 1921, i.e. a Century Earlier : See f.ex.:... , etc).

    => Put an Official and Definite End to Ankara's controversial and unpopular EU "Candidacy" Nightmare, (which Undermined the whole EU), Obviously is an Elementary thing to do, the Soonest, Liberating, at last, Europe, from such a Heavy Blunder. After all, Even European Countries like the UK, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, etc, are Not EU Members Nowadays... Why should Ankara ?

    + However, the Question of controversial Big EU Funds (etc) to Turkey (Comp. Supra)still remains Open : Shall EU definitively Reverse the Errors of 2000-2004+, just in order to Fall Back to a ...Worse Situation than what was Already the case on 1998-1999 (Comp. Supra) ?

    The European People certainly Deserve much Better, and All Real Europeans must Help Free their immense Potential (from such Heavy Traps by Fake Europeans), in order to resolutely Develop our Historic Continent in the foreseable Future !

    EU is Not Condemned to be a Suspected Accomplice of a Retrograde and Oppressive Over-Exploitation, depending on a Turkish schema, But, on the Contrary, can and must Boost the Production of European Workers and, Mainly, Creative Innovation with strategic High-Tech. Europe's History, Culture, Potential, and Mission in the World, as well as our Citizens' Wellfare and Sovereignity, clearly point towards such an Horizon.

It's important to create a synergy between "mutually stimulating" EU Countries' moves in order to overcome an "Unjust" Crisis "imported from USA", stressed new French Minister for Economic Revival, Patrick Devedjian, in Strasbourg, warning also that, while hoping for a vigorous Obama US Plan, nevertheless, "Time" is of essence for Europe...

In fact, it's EU's own interest to act Fast, before June 2009 EU Election, since, with Lisbon Treaty not ratified yet, it cannot face again the risk of a Majority Abstention, as back in 1999 and 2004, nor another "anti-EU" mood among Citizens, as in the 2005 French and Dutch "No", followed by the 2008 Irish "No", without endangering rare Historic opportunities, currently open for the EU, whose future is at stake.

From Social issues up to High-Tech Scientific Research, concrete action for Economic revival started from Strasbourg and its European dimension, for the new super-Minister Patrick Devedjian, who visited a Popular Social Housing and Infrastructure project at nearby Hagenau village, before meeting new leaders of Strasbourg's unified mega-University in a Scientific Labo at the Campus, close to EU Parliament and CoE headquarters.

Devedjian, who met also with all the spectrum of Local Political  deciders of Alsace region, close to FrancoGerman borders, wants for deeds to meet the words, in real practice, whenever politicians speak about Strasbourg and Europe's development.

-------------------------------
Devedjan to "EuroFora" : "European coordination can act as a multiplicator by mutual stimulations"
--------------------------------
Devedjian was questioned by "Euro-Fora" on his expectations for reciprocal effects of coordinated European plans :

- "We are living in a (European and Global) system where borders are transparent : When we take measures in France, they produce effects also in Germany, in Belgium, Italy, Spain, or other EU countries, and vice-versa. "So, we can have mutually stimulating effects between national revival Plans, if they are somehow coordinated", ..."They can augment each other's effects, acting as multiplicators and levers". "As a State stimulates Local authorities and Private business, similarly, each EU country's economic revival plan may multiply the effects of other EU countries' actions", he told us.

- "F.ex., when I visited Strasbourg University's Scientific labos, they told me that part of the renovation, funded by France, is realized by German companies located only a few Kms away from the border. Thus, the French revival plan benefits also the German economy. And vice-versa : when Germany takes certain measures, they can have beneficial effects also for French companies"

In an era of Globalisation, "nobody can close and isolate himself inside a Fish-Bowl !", he concluded.

Economy's revival starts from Strasbourg and Europe, for new French Minister Devedjian
----------------------------------

This could be one of the reasons for which the new French Minister for Economic Stimulus chose to make his 1st visit to Strasbourg, the headquarters of European and Paneuropean Institutions, in the Franco-German river borders at the heart of Europe.

- "It was President Sarkozy's idea", he revealed, adding also fresh "support to Strasbourg's European vocation, not only with words, but also with deeds" :F.ex., the completion of a High-Speed Train network, due to stimulate fast links with Germany, Austria, Italy, Hungary and other central EU Countries.

- "This Crisis is Unjust for Europe, because it wasn't its fault". The greatest part of the "Crisis was imported from the USA, where problems are deeper than here'', in the EU. The Crisis "wasn't due to a bad managment by Europe", who was affected by problems which emerged elsewhere. That's why Europe must be united and active enough to face this challenge. said Devedjian, who has just won +5% in popularity...

- "I hope that there will be an "Obama-effect" also on Economy, and that the Plan of the New American President will be substantial enough to face this crisis, which is worse in the USA than in our area", Europe, he added.

"Economic Revival overcomes political divisions : F.ex. Strasbourg's Socialist Mayor "Ries agreed that State actions funded by Public Debt are justified during such exceptional circumstances", noted the Center-Right republican Minister.

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

"Zeitnot" for 2009 EU Elections ?

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

"My problem is Time", stressed Devedjian from the outset, at Strasbourg's University. "I have to engage 75% of funds in 2009, out of a total of 29 Billion euros", he explained later. "Monitoring will be of essence", because we must "avoid bureaucracy or delays. No project should get lost or neglected in complex meanders of adminstrative offices' moving sands", he warned.

- "I must create activities in the middle of the Crisis", he added. Questioned by EuroFora whether he aims to start creating some "hopes before the June 2009 EU Elections", Devedjian, a former leader of the Governing Political Party in France: UMP, did not immediately reply, but revealed, later, that he "hoped to start at least some Projects on May 2009, even if the bulk of Revival Plan's effects are "expected from Autumn 2009".

However, with only 30% of EU Citizens currently aiming to cast a vote at the forthcoming EU Elections on June, (See other NewStory), the  coordinated moves' results are expected to be crucial for Citizens' participation and votes at the forthcoming June 2009 EU Elections throughout all 27 EU Member Countries...Thus, it's vital for all Europe's own Future that coordinated national Economic revival plans start to have concrete results and create hopes for new dynamics before the June 2009 EU Election...

A real challenge, since careful choices are needed : Our aim is to fund projects which "create activities", even "in the middle of the crisis", and have a "lever effect, attracting other investments", Devedjian said. Because the "Stimulus' Plan has 2 aims : A Tactical one : to create New Activities. And a Strategic one : Choose what can become efficient and useful also in the Long-term". 

- "Are you ready ?", he asked Strasbourg University's new President, professor Alain Beretz, with some 700 million euros in his pockets for Education-Research in France. - "We are !", he replied.

- "The Minister's initiative can accelerate funds, and Time is important for us. This concerns the entire renovation of all our buildings", said to "EuroFora" President, Beretz. "I showed some Scientific Research Labos to Mr. Devedjian. But, If we had more time, I could show him also some Education Amphis, whose condition needs to meet Strasbourg's new Mega-University's ambition" to reach the 10 best in the World, as Prime Minister Fillon earlier anounced here.

-----

Regional Prefectures should gather and select projects to be presented for decision before the end of January 2009.

A well-known close friend of President Sarkozy, who succeeded as EU Chairman to launch, in agreement with German chancelor Merkel and even British prime minister Brown, vigorous EU actions against the Financial/Economic Crisis, (starting from the 1st Historic Summit of EuroZone's Heads of State/Government, October 12 at Elysee Palace, followed by Washington G20 Global Summit), Devedjan will have a key role in the realisation of National and EU plans recently agreed in Brussels.

President Sarkozy is expected to arrive himself in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the official inauguration of its brand New Mega-Hospital, on the 9th of January 2009, at the eve of EU Parliament's session here, Elysee confirmed shortly after Devedjian's visit.

EU is due to review its economic revival plans at March 2009 EU Council in Prague, before the April 2 London Global Summit.
