 - "It's my Dream, to See, right in Front of my Eyes, those ISIS' brutes, at last, to be brought to Justice for their Crimes !", the fragile woman clearly and firmly Replied to "Eurofora"s above-mentioned Question.

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


Farida has stared in the Documentary Film "with Words Against the ISIS, a Yazidi raises her voice" (2016), wrote the Book "the Girl who Beat ISIS - My Story" (2016 : reed.: "The Girl who Escaped ISIS", 2017), and Won the "Pro Dignitate Humana Prize 2017" (Poland), the "LiberPress" Award at Catalonia 2017 (Spain), and the Marsh Award for "PeaceMaking and PeaceKeeping 2017 (UK).


The most Emotional Event during a fully packed CoE's International Conference for the completion of 10 Years of Fighting against Trafficking in Human Beings (2008-2018) and the Way Forward in the foreseeable Future, Today in Strasbourg, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coe10yearsagainsthumantrafficking.html), unquestionably was her Personal Testimony in a Special Session on Victims who "Survived" Human Trafficking, and Described their traumatic Personal Experience :

- Astonishingly, Farida, who had already been Invited by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly to Speak at a Committee during Last Year's April 2017 Session, Today Surprized by Launching an unexpected Call for "the People of AFRIN (Syria's Kurdish Canton recently Invaded and Occupied by Turkey's Military Troops and various Jihadist Armed Gangs) :

- They (Afrin People) now "All lie in Constant Fear", the fragile Yazidi Woman Denounced, Earlier this Morning in Strasbourg, before Launching a Call for the "CoE" to "adopt a Resolution to Help them against Pressure from Radical Groups", (who Invaded that Region following the Turkish Tanks).


- The Yazidi Minority reportedly lived in "21 Villages" at Afrin Canton, "Together with Muslims and Other Communities", a.o.. But, "Now (after the Turkish Military Invasion/Occupation) they are all Displaced". Many of them have fled to adjacent Syrian Kurdish areas, (such as Kobane, Al-Jazeera, etc), or Iraq.


- Herself a Survivor and Rescapee from  4 Months of Captivity by ISIS' Deadly Islamist Terrorists, cowardly Targetting defenseless, innocent Civilian People, at Iraq :  - "Don't let our Abusers get Away with their Crimes !", she urged from the outset.


- Most ISIS' Attacks started from 2014 to Spread at Iraq their Atrocities, which intended to commit a Genocide, by Destroying us, as Yazidi Minority : They Targetted Women and Girls with Rape, Torture, Humiliations, using Sexual Slavery as a Weapon to Destroy our Community, she Denounced. I still live that Tragedy, and I Fell this Scar will Never Disappear. ISIS Killed by Father and Brother, Captured my Mother, and held me in Captivity for 4 Months, submitted to Physical and Mental ill-treatments".


+ "Still more than 3.200 Women are in Captivity or Missing nowadays, and many Christians, etc. have been Taken Away from Syria to Iraq", Farida Abbas Khalaff added.


- "But Nobody has been yet Prosecuted for all those Crimes ! Not Any of those ISIS' Criminals Arrested, Investigated and Punished. If they Return to Europe, they should Face Justice : Jihadis Returning to Europe should Face Real Justice !", she urged.


 => CoE should call for Support to People Victims of Genocide attempts, for ReConstruction of Homes and Infrastructures Destroyed, and to practice Open Doors for Real Refugees who Face Genocide, she said.
- The Fight of Victims for Justice is a Right, and this Fight is Important Farida concluded, inter alia, largely applauded.


When she was asked Where Persecuted Yazidi and other such People used to seek Refuge, she did Not even Mention Turkey at all : "Towards Iraq", she simply replied, (her own Village being located at the North, near to the Kurdish Region).


Farida Abbas - Khalaf is a key Member of the "Global Yazidi (Minority's) Organisation" called "Yazda", a Representative of which told "Eurofora" at the CoE that they had Found some "66 Mass Graves", and an estimated number of 6.736 Victims, as well as More than 3.400 Women "Survivors" of ISIS' attacks. Among those Yazidi Women who are still "Missing", many are in Iraq, apparently held in "Captivity"by Other Islamist Extremist Gangs.  


- "In Fact, we are a Minority and Many, there, Consider us as outcasts, while the Iraqi Government had Failed to Protect us in the Past. So, we do No Trust them. In Fact, we'd Need some Kind of International Protection", it was Highlighted in Conclusion...

*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.
