*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).

ECHR's President to "EuroFora" on Journalists Gongadze and Adali murders : Principles must apply to all States, without discrimination.


+ ECHR's Statistics on Freedom of Expression (See below).


 European Court of Human Rights' President, Jean-Paul Costa, questioned by "EuroFora" on Journalists' murders, as in Gongadze and Adali's cases etc., strongly stressed all CoE Member States' obligation to make efficient Investigations to find and punish those responsible, and underlined that ECHR's case-law's principles must apply to all without any discrimination.

His call was clearly supported by various Top MEPs who denounced a risk of "Double Standards" if some Journalists' murders are investigated, while others don't.

To avoid such risks, CoE's Parliamentary Assembly adopted a Resolution, on the occasion of Ukranian Journalist Gongadze's murder, "stressing", as a matter of general Principle, "the importance it attaches to the safety of Journalists and political activists, especially those linked to opposition groups, in ALL member states of the CoE". All "crimes against journalists and political activists must be investigated ... as a matter of priority, without political interference".

Costa was replying to "EuroFora"s question on the fact that, after CoE's Committee of Ministers, also CoE's Assembly had just adopted a Resolution on Gongadze murder case, based on an ECHR's judgement of 2005, asking a full Investigation from Ukraine, who has found and condemned  in 10 years of jail 2 executants, but not yet the instigators.

While nothing similar was yet done for dissident Turkish Cypriot Kutlu Adali's murder, with 5 bullets shot at his head out of his Family's home in the territories of Cyprus occupied by Ankara's army, despite another ECHR's judgement of the same year 2005, and despite Turkey's claim that nobody was found among those responsible for the murder, and that there was nothing more to do..

In order to be credible and efficient, CoE's mechanisms shouldn't find a way to at least ask for full investigations of all Journalists' murders anywhere they might be committed, without exceptions ?

- "On the larger question that you raised, I'd like to say, since we are in a period of stock-taking on ECHR's 50 Years, that the Court's case-law developed certain concepts ....such as the Positive obligations of States, part of which are also the procedural obligations", started to reply ECHR's President.

 - "Whenever Journalists, Lawyers, Defenders of Human Rights, or even simple Citizens are murdered, the States are held responsible, not only if its their own security forces' agents who committed these murders, but also if they didn't make sufficiently substantial and efficient Investigations", he stressed.

- "I want to strongly underline that we (ECHR) have found in many cases numerous violations of Articles 2 and 3 against States, ....(about) murders or torture, ...because they didn't make enough Investigations in order to try to find and punish those responsible".

- "We (ECHR) do that vis-a-vis all 47 (CoE) Member States, without any discrimination".

"Naturally, the circumstances in each particular case may be differend, and we can't ommit to apply the rules of proof, or the rules of criminal procedure".

"But we try, by all means, to apply these principles of our case-law, to all States", he concluded.

      Costa's call was strongly supported by several Top CoE MEPs, from various Political areas


- "To investigate the murder of one Journalist, and not of another, looks like Double Standards", denounced the President of EuroLeft Group in CoE's Assembly, Dutch MEP Tiny Cox.  

- "What is the reason ? Politics or specificity of a case ? Of course, if Cyprus and Turkey are involved, it's always a Political case"..

- "Murders of Journalists should always be fully investigated, because killing Journalists is not only killing persons, but also killing Free Press".  "We (CoE's Assembly) should do our outmost to help People who are working on Free Press and they are under threat or murdered".

Because for Free Politics, Free Press is a pre-requisitive : Parliamentarians  cannot  function without a Free Press. Not investigating, is not protecting ourselves".

So we should investigate all Journalists' murders : We are talking about Gongadze, about the Cypriot man (Adali), about the Journalist murdered in Moscow one week ago, etc", Cox concluded

- "CoE can' look at these cases differently. CoE can't wear Blinckers  !".
- "If the one is investigated, so has to be also the other. Why there wasn't full investigation ? Why's that ?", wondered British  Socialist MEP, Alan Meale.

- "A good idea" would be to "make a Motion for Resolution", and "join all Journalists' murders. Adali and Gongadze etc", said to "EuroFora" EU Parliament Political affairs Committee's President, Goran Lindbland, ChristianDemocrat MEP from Sweden.
