- "We Owe our Peace to the Struggle of the Kurds"

 - "We, the 44 survivors of terrorism, declare our support and our solidarity to the People in the north of Syria, which Face, for several days, Aggressions by the Turkish Military of Erdogan and his Proxy Jihadists."

"When in 2015 we have been attacked, in our cities and in our streets, when we were counting our dead, these Kurds, Arabs, Yezidis, Turkmen, Assyrians, fought together against ISIS, an Enemy of Humanity."

"They have become Our Allies, and First Human Defense, against Hatred and Obscurantism. They were at the first line, on the ground, in Raqqa, where had been Planned the Attacks in Paris, as well as at Kobané, and in all this poisoned area, in order to put out of state to harm our Murderers, and Defeat the Islamic State."

"Thousands of them are Dead (estimated 11.000). In their struggle, they have Proudly Defended the universal Values of Freedom, Equality and Solidarity, which are common with those of our Republic. We feel to Owe Our Peace, whatever it is, to their Fight."

"Since 9 October, they are attacked and invaded, in total violation of international law. Cowardly Abandoned by all, they face Alone the Massacres, Rapes, War Crimes, and Exodus."'

---------

"As Survivors of Terrorism, we cannot remain silent and indifferent to the Permanent Attacks faced by these People, to whom we owe an invaluable debt. We are Outraged by the Passivity of France and of the International Community, which, however, after the terrorist attacks in Paris, did not hesitate to Intervene alongside the Kurds against our killers."

 - "Passivity, which Allows nowadays for Hundreds of Terrorists to Escape, and, among them, we are Afraid, the Most Dangerous French Jihadists. How much Time will they need before they Strike Again ? All these Years of Fighting and Relentless Efforts against Terrorism, are Now put into Danger."

"And Rojava, the only attempt for a social Democracy Amidst a sea of Dictatorships, Risks to be Wiped Out."

-"It canNot be So !"

=> - "We Call upon All Survivors of Terrorism to Join us and share our Message of International Solidarity. We call upon all People of the World, without exception, who have no other interest than live in Peace, our Friends, who in the aftermath of Paris' Attacks, were all United Against Barbarism, to Support Now the People of Rojava. We call upon all Journalists, who, Back on 2015, repercuted (Echoed) Our Dread, to Bring, Today, Our Message Beyond the Borders. We call upon all Heads of State in Europe and in the rest of the World, who, in 2015 had said together: "Never Again !", to take, anew Together, and with the greatest discernment, their Responsibilities vis a vis History, which Neither forgets, nor forgives."

"The Peoples of the World have Nothing to Fear from EachOther, But Everything to fear if they (are Instumentalized by Alien Interests) become Instruments of Interests which are Not Their own. In these Ground-Breaking Times, all our Thoughts and Acts must Look to Those who, wherever they are, Fight, Flee, or are Victims of Barbarism and Oppression."


"To our Friends, Beyond the Mountains. "

- According to "Charlie Hebdo"'s  CEO, Riss, (himself a Survivor, Wounded during the 1st Bloody ISIS Attack in Paris), the Syrian Kurds have "Given their Lives to Fight this Scourge that is Terrorism", but they are "Not supported sufficiently".

- The Kurds "Deserve Better, than to be Treated like that," said Riss, Director of Charlie Hebdo, on "France-Info" Friday the 1st of November, while Turkey has launched Since 9 October an offensive against the Kurds of Syria.

- Shortly After the "Bataclan" Massacre's Survivors Signed a Collective Appeal at "Le Parisien" Newspaper, (Comp. Supra),  to Defend the Syrian kurdish People, and denounce that the French Government has "Let them Down", Riss said he "Share(s) this View". "

- "It's true that the Kurds have given their Lives to Fight this Scourge, that is Terrorism, this Fascism, as represented by ISIS. We doN't Support them enough. When we are Fighting against this kind of Totalitarianism, we must have Solidarity":

 -"There are not a lot of People who are Able to Fight ISIS: many Others have Broken their Teeth on that. They (Syrian Kurds) were Able to do that, and they Deserve Better, than to be Treated like this."

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.
