*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- Speaking to "Eurofora" just after participating in a CoE's Debate against Human Trafficking nowadays, Yazidi Minority Young Woman former ISIS' Prisoner, Farida Abbas Khalaf from Iraq, who has nowadays become a Famous Award Winner and co-Writer (See Infra), when asked to Choose the Number 1 Priority that she feels Most Important, after what she had Suffered, following her Father and Brothers' Killings, her Abduction, Slavery and Abuse by those Deadly Islamist Terrorists cowardly Targetting defenseless and innocent Civilian People, she did Not Hesitate, not even a Second :


 - "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...

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
