*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Recently Growing Number of Aggressions against Jewish People risk to provoke a New Exodus towards Israel, Warned the 1st vice-President of EU Parliament, mainstream ChristianDemocrat MEP from Italy, Antonio Tajani, who has also served as vice-President of EU Commission on Industry, Business and Space, (Comp. relevant previous Tajani Statementsto "Eurofora", inter alia, also, f.ex., at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajaniindustrygalileo.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajanigalileo2018.html).

Tajani was addressing an Inter-Religious Meeting by Top Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Christians, Together with Jewish, Muslim and Budhist Leaders of Religious Communities in Strasbourg's region, where he was the Key-note Speaker, according to his role as EU Parliament's vice-President responsible for Inter-Religious Dialogue.


While the rest of his Speech was mainly Focused on presenting MEPs' activities, since 2014, about Dialogue between Religious Communities, as well as relevant prospects in the foreseable Future, suddenly, while approaching the Conclusion, he made a Surprize Move, by Denouncing some less known Recent Dramatic Developments :

- EU Parliament's 1st vice-President strongly Criticized what he called "an Intensification of Violent Acts against Jewish People" in Europe, and particularly "in Germany" and some other EU Countries, Last Year, which Grew from almost 4.000 in the Past, up to about 8.000 per year Nowadays, as he pointed out.


=> - This is a "very Worrying" new Phenomenon, which makes People Wonder whether it might Provoke a kind of "New Exodus" of Jews "to Israel", Tajani Warned, in this regard, inte alia.


During 2015-2016 much More than 1,5 Million Irregular Migrants/Mass Asylum Seekers notoriously came, as an UnPrecedented Huge "Tsunami", through Turkey to Europe, when Turkish a.o. Smugglers Exploited a recent Change of Government in Greece, at EU's External Borders, etc.


Moreover, as it was Found, Later-on, (f.ex. by EU Officials in Brussels, cited by the mainstream German Press, etc), Ankara's Authorities had even Systematicaly "Chosen" those that they send to Europe, f.ex., by Excluding Educated and Qualified People, etc., and pushing through almost Entirely Muslims, (to the point that even Pope Francis, when he went in the Greek Islands to Take 2 Muslim and 1 Christian Family of Asylum Seekers to Host at the Vatican, he didn't find Any Christian Family at all, being Obliged to take with him All 3 out of 3 Families Totaly composed by Muslims only, up to 100%... Christian and Other Religious Minorities (f.ex. Yazidi, etc) Persecuted by "ISIS" Terrorists and other Islamist Extremists in Syria and/or Iraq reportedly Prefered to go to Lebanon, Jordan, or even ...to faraway Armenia, instead of being Obliged to be Closed at controversial Turkish Camps, squeezed in UnHealthy Conditions, which have Provoked Mass Protests Silenced by Brutal Oppression from the Turkish Police, and Surrouned by Barbed Wire and Armed Soldiers, reportedly imposing Gang-leaders of "Heavy Islamic Agenda", denounced even by Mainstream International Medias. Meanwhile, various Violent Attacks spread also Among such Mass Asylum seekers themselves, f.ex. in Berlin, etc., Affecting even Children, to the point that, f.ex., an Iraqi Refugee, who had arrived Earlier in Germany, Later-on, Prefered to ...Return Back to Iraq, in order to Save his Family from more Violent Aggressions in Europe ! (as mainstream "Die Welt" and other German Media reported).


The Manifold "Selection" that Turkish Authorities and/or Smugglers' Network actually did, de Facto, among various potential Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants, has Obviously Undermined and almost Destroyed the Traditionaly "Noble" Aura which used to stimulate Human Sympathy and Solidarity around the Quality of "Refugee", throughout the History of Mankind.

On the Contrary, they reportedly Dissuaded and/or Obstructed many Real Refugees to reach Europe, - as, f.ex., the unforgettable image, (even if Scandalously Distorded and overExploited for the Contrary of what it really was), of that small Kurdish Boy from Kobane area, whose Poor Father slept even in Turkish WC in order to Find Money to Pay the Turkish Smugglers, who Finally Killed all his Family by suddenly Abandoning and Sabotaging the Makeshift Floating Plastic Boat in which they had to cross the Aegean Sea towards the Greek Islands, OverNight.

Instead, they Send, obviously, Many Thugs, petty Criminals, or even Deadly Islamist Terrorists, as it was found later on. But, perhaps the Worse, was the Recent Multiplication of Horrible and Disgusting, Brutal Rapes (sometimes even Murder) of Defenseless Victims : Including Young Girls Aged only 12-14, and/or Small Boys 5 or 10 years old, even Children of Refugees, (f.ex. in Austria, in Germany, in the Greek Islands, etc), added to Mass Violent Assaults and/or Gang Rapes, etc., (f.ex. in Germany, Finland, Sweden : where Rapes Doubled on 2016, etc), covering the Name of "Refugee" with Dirt, as Never Before. To the grand Benefit of the Turkish Regime, which used notoriously to Face the ECHR-Backed Human Rights of Armenian, Greek, Cypriot, Kurdish, and other Real, Honest and Tragic Refugees, (Both War Refugees, and Political Refugees, Personaly Targetted for their Struggle against Oppression for Liberty and/or Human Dignity, etc), who, Now, don't even dare use that Name in Public no more...


Even if the Closure of Western Balkans' a.o. Borders by 5 or 6 European Countries, since February 2016, managed to Drasticaly Diminish the Number of Massive Tresspassing from Turkey infiltrating inside Europe, neverthess, the Recent Setbacks of "ISIL"s and Other Terrorists and Islamist Extremist Armed Gangs, mainly in Syria, (f.ex. in Alepo, around Raqqa, etc) and Iraq (f.ex. near Mosul, etc), have notoriously Fueled Concerns among various Observers, Worried for probable Attempts of Further Infiltrations in Europe by even Harder Islamit Fundamentalists, (in Addition to the 2015-infiltrated deadly Jihadists of "ISIS", who have already Cowardly Targetted and Murdered a lot of Innocent and Defenseless Civilian People in Europe on 2015-2016).

 

>>> On the Contrary, Facing such a Monstruous Barbarity, (which Targets and Kills also some Muslim and Other People, particularly Shiites, Yazidis, Chinese, Japan, etc), Speaking earlier to "Eurofora", Tajani had Strongly supported the View that, Nowadays, it was more Urgent than ever, for Inter-Religious Dialogue to strive to Forge and Develop at least some core Common Values, shared by All main Religions, from which could emerge a "New Humanism, (See, f.ex., also : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentvpresidenttajanionreligionsversusterror.html).

    Scientific innovation joined to Faith for Human Rights, Eastern Partnership and fight against the Crisis, but above all, the need to overcome the "Crisis of Trust" from EU Citizens, are the main priorities for new EU Parliament's President, Polish Jerzy Buzek, that a 555-votes-strong majority of MEPs on July 14,  Strasbourg made a living symbol of the fact that, 20 years after the fall of Berlin Wall (1989 - 2009) there is no more an Eastern or Western Europe, but only one Europe, as the head of the largest group of MEPs, ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Joseph Daul, stressed after the event.

    Speaking later to a group of Strasbourg's Journalists, including "EuroFora", the new EU Parliament's President clarified his stance on concrete topical issues, as f.ex. that of Turkey's controversial EU bid, which was one of the main issues of the June 2009 Electoral campain, clearly won by his party of ChristianDemocrats/EPP :  - "At present, Turkey does not fullfil none of EU conditions", he stressed, (See infra).

imag0958_400

    Buzek is well known in Strasbourg and to "EuroFora" as EU Rapporteur for the Framework Program of Scientific Research and Development of Technologies. A Natural Science Professor from the Historic and Religious landmark Polish City of Częstochowa, active in the famous Solidarnosk grass-roots social movement, he served 4 years as Prime Minister (1997-2001), before being elected as MEP in 2004 and 2009, after he brillantly won the latest EU Election at the head of his party (EPP) almost doubling the number of its MEPs from 15 to 28 !

    - "Innovation" and "Energy safety", as well as fight against the "Cimat change", but also "Eastern Partnership", the "Mediterranean", "Strategic partnerships" with Russia, the USA, etc, and the search for "solutions to the Economic Crisis" that EU Citizens "expect" from us, will be his "priorities", announced from the outset the new EU Parliament's President, reminding also that the quest for "Human and Civic Rights" played an important role in his experience with the Solidarnosc grass-roots social movement in Poland's History

    But, the most important of all, is the urgent need to overcome the "Crisis of Trust" between EU Institutions and the People he stressed : - EU "Citizens often don't understand us", denounced Buzek, launcing a call to "do anything for EU Citizens to understand our work" in EU Parliament : "We (MEPs) need to make EU Citizens involved" in "what we are doing every week, in Strasbourg and Brussels", he proposed. Pointing f.ex. to the hot "Debates" with "strong arguments" exchanged between MEPs during the preparation of their Legislative Decisions, in Committees, delivering often hard struggles between initially opposed points of view, long before forging a majority at the final vote, sometimes more than a year..

    Therefore, EU Parliament will be "open to your criticism, for discussion and exchange of views", he promissed to Journalists in Strasbourg.

    In this way, Buzek, in fact, highlighted "EuroFora"s main idea, that we strongly advocate since 1997-2007, to systematicaly and actively involve EU Citizens in public debates during the decision-making process of important EU measures, which affect their lives and the society in which they live, (and not only just a few weeks each 4 or 5 Years at the eve of EU Elections)...
--------------------
    This is related also to the symbolic gift that Buzek chose to give to the out-going former EU Parliament's President, Hans Gert Poettering, (2007-2009), his collegue in the ChristianDemocrats/EPP, who brillantly won 2009 EU Elections in Germany : A genuine statute of sainte Barbara crafted in Silesia's black Coal by Polish Miners : Those simple but strong people who fought for social change against some technocrats and bureaucrats disguissed into so-called "real-socialists" of old times. (PHOTO).

    It's enough to have seen a popular open air mass, at Warsaw's center, with many thousands of people, old and young, simple workers and intellectuals mixed together, with references to Poland's history and struggles for survival and liberty, through various ages, (as fex. that organized at the eve of CoE's 2005 panEuropean Heads of State and Government for the beatification of late Pope John-Paul II), in order to understand what such symbols mean..

    But, overcoming the "Crisis of Trust" with EU Citizens obviously implies also to rectify any errors done in the past, fex. on Turkey's controversial EU bid, with controversial decisions taken in 1999 and 2004 to give a "candidate" status and to start EU negotiations, provoking an unprecedented series of 3 "No" to EuroReferenda and 3 Majoriy Abstentions in EU Parliament Elections : 1999, 2005 and 2009, (even if the latest one succeeded to decelerate and almost stop the drop of participation rates, opening hopes for vote's revival after an electoral campaign clearly critical to Turkey's claims in several mainstream EU countries)
    
    Therefore, Buzek was faced with manifold critical Questions on EU Enlargement, most of them citting concrete examples of certain political problems  :  But his replies were almost always given as a matter of general principle :

    F.ex. Questioned on the suspension of EU - Croatia talks because of a Border conflict with EU Member Slovenia, Buzek prefered to speak about principles :

- "We know that during Enlargement, the process can be blocked by failure to resolve this kind of issues",  This concerns also other enlargments' cases", and "these rules are always in force" he warned.


But Buzek avoided to directly reply to a queston on "French and German EPP' calls to define the Borders of Europe", as a German journalist asked him by making a reference to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and German Chancellor Angie Merkel's, critical statements on Turkey at the June 2009 Electoral campain.    

- "Concerning Enlargement, there's always the same rules : There have to be Criteria, which have to be respected if a Country wants to join the EU", he started to simply reply.

- "For my country (Poland) it took us 15 Years to fullfil these Criteria", Buzek reminded, indicating, if proportions are kept, that Turkey, fex. would have to spend some 25 years before eventually joining the EU..

- "Countries wishing to join the EU need to Change their Systems", as we (Poland and other former Eastern European Countries) did, he stressed.

- "'For me, meeting the condition of Human Rights is one of the Key conditions for membership in the EU", preferring again to speak from the point of view of General Principles, on the occasion of an untimely question on Serbia (which is not even a candidate yet)...

- "Turkey" has, "first of all", to fullfil (EU) Copenhagen criteria". Bevause, currently, none of them is fullfiled by Turkey", New EU Parliament's President, denounced, speaking later to a group of Journalists, including "EuroFora".

In particular, on Human Rights :  - "We (EU) can never forget Human Rights", because "this is at the very Foundations of the EU", Buzek added.

On the contrary, when he referred to EU Enlargment for the  "Western Balkans Countries ", Buzek appeared upbeat, finding "promising situations", despite "difficulties" in the Past, since "Countries are queuing to become EU members", and this "generated changes", as he said.

As for Russia, Buzek observed that it was a "very important" country, located "in the same Continent", Europe,  "close to our borders", and "we need eachother". "But Russia' has 'differend poblems : "They claim that their system is Democratic, but rules are differend", and we must be "aware of such differencies", fex. "on Human Rights", that we can't ignore, as he said;

Concerning China, where a journalist observed that the recipient of EU Parliament's latest "Sakharov prize" for freedom of thought is "still in prison", Buzek found that since the 1999 events in Tien Amin square, "we see differencies on Human Rights still today", and expressed his "support" for those who try to ameliorate the situation.

On the contrary, speaking recently to "EuroFora" he strongly supported the idea for an EU - Ukraine cooperation, fex. between Airbus and Antonov, in order to build a  less costly but more performant than the old and problematic A400M, new Military Transport Airplane : - "They (Ukranian Antonov Company) can certainly do it. I'm sure they can. It's a good Idea, and I'd be glad if it was done", he told us. (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/airbusantonov.html )
