 *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- According to the Latest Official Press Anouncements, only 14 Irregular Migrants were Returned Back to Turkey, at the Same Time that More than ...278 New Arrivals of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants through Turkey have entered inside the EU (+Schenghen area) Member Greece, during these last 2 Days (17 + 18 August 2016).


I.e. the current Rate of Returns, compared to New Mass Arrivals, between Turkey and EU, is .. Less than Five per Cent : 5 % only !

 

+278 v. 14 (i.e. less than 5%): Thus goes Now that controversial EU - Turkey Deal on Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (See Infra) in real Practice... 


+ In Addition, more than 57.000 Mass Irregular Migrants, who had all arrived Earlier through Turkey, still remain in Greece, after Crossing irregularly EU's External Borders. This is, obviously, just a "Small" Part of the More than 1,5 Million of IMIs who notoriously crossed into Europe via Turkey during 2015-2016.


The above mentioned 14 Returnees Back to Turkey were taken in charge by EU's FRONTEX, which had to Pay and Organise Air Plane Flights and Special Boat Transports these last two Days.


At the Same Time, the More than 278 New Arrivants apparently came inside the EU with various Turkish Smugglers' ships.


Thus goes, in Real Practice, the infamous, Controversial and UnPopular EU - Turkey Deal, which Costs to EU Citizens Taxpayers (i.e. including Poor People, obliged to pay at least VAT, etc) more than 9 Billions € earmarked for Ankara between 2015 - 2018...

 And it is even Foreseen, according to that (notoriously "Blackmailed" Deal, brokered "en catimini" a Shady Sunday in a Deserted Brussels, notoriously Blocked by a Total Emergendy "Black-Out" of all Public a.o. Transports just after more recent Extremist Islamic Terrorists' Deadly Attacks against innocent Civilian People), for ...Each Individual thus Returned back to Turkey, to be Compensated (sic !) by anOther Migrant, now even ...officialy Chosen by the Turkish Authorities among those available at its Asiatic Borders to Syria and/or Iraq, etc...


Moreover, the Turkish Government openly Now Blackmails the EU by Threatening, in a lot of Statements to EU Media, that Ankara would unleash a 2nd "Tsunami" of even more Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (in fact, "Selected" by Turkish Agents in one way or another, f.ex. Christians and/or Qualified People Excluded, almost No Women, Nor Real Children and only a Few Families, etc., as in the recent Past), IF Europeans don't Yield to an Ultimatum to Accept also another, even More Controversial and UnPopular, total "Visa-Free" status for 80 Millions of Turks, (according to which, anybody of them could come Enter and Stay inside Europe for 6 Monhs Each Year, whenever he/she liked)...


Meanwhile, ...NATO Warships, Airplanes and other Military stuff, reinforced European FRONTEX equipment and Personel, as well as the latest EU CoastGuard, just voted by EU Parliament in Strasbourg since Early July (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euexternalbordersguard.html ), are supposed to have recently Started to Protect EU's External Borders, in the obviously Stategicaly located Greek Islands accross the Aegean Sea, (after also a Famous such Call by German Chancelor Angie Merkel at nearby Karlsruhe already from December 2015 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/merkelagainstsmugglersataegeansea.html ).


EU Citizens' notoriously Growing Concerns about such Issues notoriously were a Main Driver for the UK Popular Referendum's Majority Voting for "BREXIT" at the End of June 2016. "A Fortiori" after the Recent Series of Deadly Attacks by various Muslim Asylum Seekers/irregular Immigrants who Killed and/or Wounded Many innocent Civilian People in several European Countries even more during this Summer : F.ex. France, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Belgium, Austria, etc, (while it has also Discovered that Most ISIL's Armed Terrorists who Killed more than 100 Civlians in Paris on November 2015 had already Entered into the EU through Turkey and via Greece, Hidden among that Mass of IMIs). This was Added to Many Recent Brutal Mobs' Aggressions against Defenseless European Women and even Only 14 years old Young Girls in several Cities accross Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Swizerland, the UK, etc., (See, f.ex. CoE's relevant Debate + Resolution in Strasbourg, at http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforenquiryandjusticeonmobviolentattacksagainstwomen.html), going afterwards Down to even 10 or 4 years old young Boys, f.ex. in Wien and Boostedt, or a 79 y.o. Elder Woman in a Cemetery at Iddenbueren last July, and to a lot of Aggressions at Public Swimming Pools as German Police Reports denounced,  (etc).  All these recent Facts Fuel also various "EuroSceptic" and/or Rightist, etc., often called "Populist" Movements, progressively inspiring even Mainstream Political Parties, (inevitably including also several Strongly Motivated Pro-Europeans and/or sincere Human Rights Defenders, Shocked by the Tragedy suffered by so Many Innocent Victims and subsequent "Terror" or Fear Spreading among the People, as f.ex. lately in Wien, etc), accross all Europe.


In this regard, at least for the Time being, all serious observers are, in fact, obliged to Acknowledge that, in Real Practice, the Only "Good News", which currently Protect European People from even Worse such Treats, are the "De Facto" Border Checks and Controls, notoriously set up by several European Countries, particularly accross the so-called "Western Balkans Route" Exposed to Turkey via Greece, such as, f.ex. Bulgaria, FYROM, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, etc., with Support from the Czech Republic, Slovakia (current EU Council's rotating Presidency-holder : Comp. f.ex. Prime Miinister Robert Fico's relevant Reply to "Eurofora"s Question during the latest EU Heads of State/Government Summit in Brussels, June 2016: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ficomigrationpolicymightpushbrexits.html), which had already Started to seriously Curb and Reduce that Unprecedented Mass Migration influx hrough Turkey, as Early as since Middle February 2016, as even Official UNHCR and IMO Data have Proved, according also to a Pioneer Analysis and Publication by "Eurofora" from Early May : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/unpopulareuvisafreefor80millionsturksuseless.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/weltadoptseuroforaviewonuselesseuturkeymigrantsdealafternewthreat.html).


But, at this Eve of the forthwoming 27 EU Head of State/Government Summit due to kickStart, for the 1st Time at such a level, (as former French President Nicolas Sarkozy had vainly Asked, already as Early as since August 2007, and promised but finaly Downplayed by controversial Former EU Commission President Barroso, now a US Global Financial "Goldman Sachs" employee), Debate on EU's Future developments, on Mid-September 2016 in Bratislava (Slovakia), which Timely Coincides with the Sad "Anniversary" of Last Year's, Middle-August 2015 sudden Start of that ...Public Transports-Helped, Unprecedented in History, Huge "Tsunami" of More than 1,5 Million Massive Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants' influx inside the EU through Turkey and via Greece, the Obvious Question which is Now Raised is :


=> How Europe will Defend its External Borders, (while also Helping, in one way or another, the Real Refugees, who are notoriously a small Minority among that Mass of Irregular Migrants from Various Muslim Countries related to, and at least partly Selected by Turkey : Comp. Supra), and Protect EU Citizens, as well as a Real, Historic and Socio-Cultural European Cohesion in the forseable Future ?

Bloody concrete Facts about most of the Recent Victims who Died or were Wounded by Violent Attacks of various Muslim Migrants cowardly attacking innocent and defenseless Civilian People in Europe, (f.ex., from Wurzburg or Munich and Reutlingen, up to Haute-Savoie, Magnanville, Nice, Gratz, etc., as well as in USA's Tennessee, San Bernandino, Orlando, etc), clearly reveal that Mere Economic "Integration" is NOT Enough at all, but only a Tragic and irresponsible Blunder, IF a sincere Socio-Cultural Integration at least on elementary Values (particularly Hard for those Chosen by Turkey, in one way or another : Comp. Supra) is Neglected or even Totaly Absent.

This naturaly goes Hand by Hand Together (but Not as a Pre-Condition at all) also with an obviously Timely and long-overdue interogation, on what Role Europe should play in Collective Efforts to put, at last, an End to the Sufferings of Syrian People since the Bloody and Destructive, Violent Upheavals that some have notoriosuly Provoked between 2011-2016.

Indeed, at least Now, that After-BREXIT Europe, isn't supposed to Start playing, at last, an increasingly Important Foreign Policy Role in the World ? Not even at EU's close Neighbourhood ?

However, according to Press Reports, a large 3/4 Majority of irregular Migrants arriving to EU Member Greece from Turkey during the Last 1,5 Month (i.e. about 2.000 on July-MidAugust 2016), were Not even Syrians...

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
