A very Energetic looking Sarkozy, artfuly alternating from Humour to Tragic Warnings stimulated Thousands of fans  gathered at Brumath Village, near Strasbourg, who Masively Applauded him many times, at the Eve of Crucial Forthcoming Campaigns for new Presidential and Parliamentarian Elections in Less than a Year's Time, from April 2017+.

- "Saturday and Sunday are Important Days for Politics, since they often have the Most Interesting News", observed Sarkozy from the outset, revealing also, in a Speech to Thousands of Enthousiastic Supporters, that, "when I returned to the Party (after Years of Absence), the First person I saw arriving to Work that Morning came only After 10 o'Clock"...

- "18 Months After" ReUniting and Restoring a previously Divided  and Financialy Broke Party, which has now Settled its Budget and revendicates "250.000 Members",  Sarkozy denounced Divisions, stressing : - "How can someone Unite France, when he doesn't even Unite his Family ?".  Certainly, "a Leader is made in order to Lead, even in Difficult Moments". However, "I Respect All Opinions, Democratically", he promissed, "but Face to Face in a Loyal way", (i.e., mainly, in a Public Debate).


    - Just Before he Returns Back to Active Politics, "Polls gave to Marie Le Pen's party (FN EuroSceptic Rightists) the 1st Rank" in France, he reminded, while also fustigating anew that kind of Deals with Socialists which "brought Austrian ChristianDemocrats Down to Less than 11%, while a  Far Right Candidate passed to the 2nd Round of the recent Presidential Elections, against an Unknown "Green" Politician", he observed.     


 - However, it's also true that, meanwhile, Some pushed to Break Down our (National) Identity", But -"We are Fed Up with" a kind of "Dictature of Minorities". "Here it's France  !  "We doN't want Communautarism" (i.e. Cultural Ghettos and Divisions). "There is Only One Community : The National Community". "We've Had Enough to See at the Streets, in the Media, in TV, too many things in which we don't Recognize no more ourselves", "We Love that Country : France, that we Received from our Parents, and want to Transmit to our Children and GrandChildren .. We DoN't Want to Change our Culture, our Way of Life, our Traditions",  "this Country (France) that we received as Heritage, that our Parents Worked to Forge, and that we Revendicate", he stressed, Strongly Applauded by the People.

    - So that, the Forthcoming 2017 Elections, (in France, but also in Germany, and elsewhere in Europe), in fact, raise an Existential Question : - "Will France (and all Europe) still Exist ?", Sarkozy  Wondered.


    - "Here, in France, We are Open. We are Welcoming People. But, those who Join us, have to Adapt themselves to the Native Population. Not vice-versa !", he pointd out amidst Popular Applause.  


    - "There are here People with Various, Different Histories and Cultures. But there is something which Unites us  : I wish a Great France, Open, Generous, and with Solidarity". Nevertheless, whenever someone wants to join us, "the First thing to do is to Love and Respect" this Country (France).


    - "I'll Never accept a Chilly,  Selfish France", "Nor a France  Cut off from Europe", etc. "But, ... Regardless of the Origin of the Parents of those Childrens who join us, we must Teach them the History and Culture" of their Host Country (France) !


     - F.ex, "My own Father was from Hungary and my (Maternal) Grand-Father from Greece, but they Teached me the History of France, and my Ancestors became those from (Ancient) Gaulle, because I am French !", Sarkozy shared his own, Personal Feelings with sincerity, Applauded.

    + Another Emotional moment, naturaly, was when the French Top Politician Strongly stressed that - "We, Republicans, Don't Accept those Barbaric Massacres in Paris !", by ISIL's Deadly Extreme Islamic Terrorists and atrocious BeHeaders, even of Innocent and Defenseless Civilian People, as he pointed out Widely Applauded. On the Contrary, he Called to "Honour the Memory of our Compatriots Cowardly Murdered", while also pointing at French People's "Capacity to Overcome Challenges".


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


    - "I would like to Conclude by making 2 Points on Europe :", Sarkozy added, speaking very Near to Strasbourg's EU and CoE Headquarters, just 12 Minutes Time away. "There are 2 Red Lines", he observed :


    - First,  "Both from the Right, and the Left side, there is, nowadays, a Growing Criticism. Nowadays, Europe is Challenged. The European Ideal is contested". And "I Know that several Issues still have to Find Solutions. I leaded Europe, when I Chaired the EU (back on 2008), and, if France wasn't there, even Dangerous Conflicts risked to Spread, as he reminded, evoking the Russia - Georgia Clash, which had, notoriously, been Stoped by Sarkozy's immediate Diplomatic Action vis a vis Both the then Russian Preident, Medevedev, and the then Georgian President, Shakashvili, succeding to broker a Peace Agreement, (Comp., f.ex., "Eurofora"s relevant Publication from Northern Italy, then, where German Chancelor Angie Merkel was visiting, while the then Pope Benedict had just Launched a Vibrant Call to Stop Bloodshed and Destructions, and Prevent a Division of the European Continent : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/irish/benepeace.html).


    - But, it's not because of some Errors, that we should throw away the Baby, together with the Water of the Bathtub"..., he pointed out.


    + Also Because "the European Continent has Faced some of the Worst Conflicts in the World, Back in the (First Half of the) 20th Century", (f.ex. with 2 WW, etc), Sarkozy reminded.


    ++ And, even if "We are, nowadays, some 500 Millions Europeans", Nevertheless, in some Years, the World is due to have a Population of about 12  Billions...", he observed in addition.


    => That's one Reason more, for which "I will Never Accept the Division of Europe, because this would provoke Risks to make Disappear the European Civilisation !", Sarkozy Warned.

    - In fact, "there is a European Civilisation, a European Culture, and a European Continent" which "Unites us" (Europeans) all, he strongly stressed.

    + A 2nd "Red Line", is about the Franco-German EU core :  From 1870 until 1945 we (France) Fought against Germany, and you, here in Alsace (Borderline), you perfectly Know what it really means", he reminded.


    - But the Franco-German ReConciliation is, nowadays, a Red Line.  I will Never Accept that anyone might, eventualy, disrupt it. Certainly, there may still be one or another Differences of Views, some concrete Choices to Criticize. But, the Franco-German Axis, Friendship and ReConciliation, is Untouchable, it's not just Politics, but Our History", Sarkozy stressed.


    -----


    + Then, as far as it concerns the English, (i.e. the recent BREXIT), it can't be Both In and Out". So that, f.ex.," I'd call for the French Government to Welcome in Paris all those Financial Businesses which couldn't stay, no more, in the UK, he suggested.


    - But, as we saw also in France, Back on 2005, (i.e. after the "No" to EU Constitution Referendum, mainly Fueled by Popular Opposition to Turkey's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid, partialy added to some Economic controversies), it's always "Better to Speak to the People", and not just to those Establishment's "Elites" who Betrayed everything", urged Nicolas Sarkozy,

- who had already Succeeded to be Brilliantly Elected in 2007, while proposing a New, "Simplified" EU Treaty (which becama the "Lisbon Treaty" on  2010) and to Freeze Turkey's controversial EU bid, Succeeding then to Overccome that Previous EU Challenge.

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
