 *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...

elysee_conference_ambassadeurs__eu_press_400


Le spectaculaire succès du Président français, Nicolas Sarkozy, (en tête de l'UE jusqu'a décembre), à obtenir de suite un cessez le feu inattendu entre la Russie et la Georgie, immédiatement après sa visite aux Présidents Medvedev et Saakashvili, au pire moment de tensions et heurts violents meurtieurs, qui avaient tué plusieurs innocents et provoqué le deplacement forcé de réfugiés par milliers, lui donne incontestablement une stature vraiment européenne :

A ses liens personnels bien connus avec l'Hongrie, la Grece, l'Italie ou l'Espagne, en sus de son amitié avec la chancelière allemande Merkel, son souhait d'essayer d'attirer l'Angleterre au jeu européen, etc, s'y ajoute, maintenant, une réussite, fragile certes, mais importante, au combat pour la Paix dans la "grande" Europe du général De Gaulle, "jusqu'a l'Oural", qui inclut naturellement la Géorgie, l'Arménie et d'autres pays, et ne peut exister qu'avec rapports de confiance et partenartiat stratégique avec la Russie.

Apres avoir réussi à debloquer la situation au Liban, (pays avec liens culturels historiques en Europe), lors du Sommet pour la Méditerranée à Paris, juillet dernier, (comme atteste maintenant le prémier accord d'echange d'Ambassadeurs avec la Syrie), Sarkozy activa maintenant une présidence française de l'EU bien entreprenante, à l'autre bout de l'Europe, à Moscou, où, contrairement à Napoléon, il a été reçu avec soulagement par le nouveau président russe, ami de l'experimenté Vladimir Poutine.

Cet homme politique rélativement nouveau au plan politique européen, avec une vision souvent critique ou même critiquée, à tort ou a raison, mais ambitieuse et concrete a la fois, qui aime s'adresser aux "Européens", comme il dit, n'est-il pas bien placé pour stimuler le fameux débat sur l' "Identité de l' Europe", qu'il a proposé au Parlement Européen récemment à Strasbourg, moins d'un an avant les Elections européennes de 2009 ?

En 2007, il a réussi à faire monter spectaculairement la participation citoyenne aux élections présidentielles en France, obtenant des récords historiques :

N'est-ce pas, justement ce que l' Europe a bésoin, apres 2 abstentions majoritaires sans précedent aux Elections de 1999 et 2004, et 3 "Non" aux réferenda pour ses institutions en 2005 et 2008, pendant une décennie trouble 1999-2008, (marquée surtout par la demande controversée de la Turquie d'entrer dans l'UE eclipsant les avancées de la Monnaie unique et de la liberté de circulation à l'espace Shengen, avec consequences mal-ressenties par la majorité des citoyens, bien au-délà des clivages du passé), qui a failli stopper l'integration européenne ?

Et cela, au moment même ou une globalisation galopante met l'Europe devant un choix crucial entre saut qualitatif en avant, apte à valoriser une occasion historique exceptionelle à se développer résolument, après les vaines destructions, querelles et tensions des guerres "chaudes" ou "froides" qui lui ont couté son rang dans le Monde, ou réculer définitivement en décadence...

Alors, que certains de nos amis à la Commission en Bruxelles, lui laissent au moins un peu d'espace de mouvement, et qu'ils l'aident à tenter d'insufler de l' oxygène frais et vivifiant aux rapports entre les citoyens et une Europe qui a manifestement bésoin et mérite de retrouver d'urgence un nouveau dynamisme populaire, avec un souci de réalisme mais aussi une vision passionante pour son avenir !

Après tout, les Etats Unis d' Amérique ne se sont pas faits à coups de bureaucratie, nécessaire et utile, mais manifestement insuffisante : Sans l'impulsion d'hommes politiques originaux, d'intellectuels vraiment engagés, et, surtout, sans l'enorme énergie émanant de la conscience d'enjeux à la fois pratiques et grandioses, bien resentis par des millions de citoyens, stimulant leur adhésion active comme pioniers d'un nouveau avenir commun à construire, ils seraient encore une ex-colonie périphérique, affaiblie par stériles divisions, passif et impuissant spectateur des convulsions tragiques d'un Monde à la dérive...

Que les vrais "européens" ré-lisent au moins les fameux discours historiques sur l' Europe d'un Sarkozy bien inspiré à Strasbourg, aussi bien avant qu'après avoir gagné les élections françaises, le 21 février et le 2 juillet 2007, après son 1er sommet des Bruxelles, qui a adopté le nouveau Traité de l'UE en conclusion de la presidence allémande : Bonnes lectures pour cet été 2008, afin de préparer l' avenir qui s'ouvrira (ou fermera) à partir des élections européennes de 2009.

Peut-etre revelera-t-il plus, en ce sens, lors de ses 2 discours-debats prochains avec les eurodeputés, prévus lors des sessions plenières du Parlement Européen a Strasbourg en octobre et décembre 2008...

Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner had already unveiled President Sarkozy's intentions, during a particularly "hot" Press Conference in Paris, where he faced some's insistance for "sanctions", with a call for "a common EU stance". In the meanwhile, he was consulting "all these days" most of his EU, Russia and Georgia counterparts, (as Sarkozy's Spokesman, P-J. Henin confirmed to "EuroFora"). This allowed him to obtained the desired result, as EU Chairman, at a short, exceptional EU Summit in Brussels, afterwards.

dsc00889_400

But, Sarkozy's No 1 official, Presidential palace's Secretary General Claude Gueant, active at Elysee during the 2008 Ambassadors' Conference, (together with his Top Diplomat, the experienced David Levitte), is well known for having an overall view : A link with 2009 EU Elections at the horizon ?

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 ?
