Summary: After Pamela Geller had an article on The Euromediterranean Process in the Washington Times on 30 Dec. 2009, some blog articles popped up on the subject - but it has also been alleged that the process, say the Union for the Mediterranean, which was proclaimed with its own parliament, secretariat and other institutions by all heads of state and government of the EU and Mediterranean countries with the exception of Libya´s Gaddhafi in Paris on 13th July 2008, has died.
Unfortunately it has not. Due to the financial crisis it is stalled - and the Middle East conflict is also an obstacle, as well as clearly a degree of frustration among the Arabs that they have not managed to impose their "perfect" standards on us. This last point the President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Fini, suggests to cope with by adjusting our standards to those of the Muslims! Former EU Commissioner, Mr Frattini, now Italian Foreign Minister, says that the Mediterranean Union's future borders would be the Persian Gulf, and his ministry's Secretary General said that Iraq will be included. The EU is creating an energy group with Euromediterranean-Gulf countries, in particular on large solar plants. The EU Economic and Social Council is active in promoting the Union through civil society. Mediterranean cities and regions have formed separate groups to get the Union on the move - 43 trade ministers met on 9 December 2009 to get the agreed Euro-Mediterranean free trade zone on track and running in 2010 as planned in The Euromediterranean Declaration of 1995 and reaffirmed in 2008 in Paris - and to develop the union additionally socially and culturally. Algeria, Libya and Syria have not taken up the offer. The EU is exceedingly happy to have given Morocco advanced status a year ago with visa facilitations, more of our money and enhanced political cooperation. The Euromediterranean Transport Project is also very active - with i.a. a Common Euromediterranean Aviation Area to bring more people from south to north - and tourists in the opposite direction. All evil forces are now being activated to promote the union, which, as WTO chief Lamy said, is just a step towards tomorrows oganisation of the world - or like Obama's advisor and mentor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, says: This regionalization is the way to the world state / government. The EU has a large euromediterranean action program under way - and the Arabs are hungrily waiting for our money and industry, while NATO is trying to conquer Central Asia, so that it can all be linked to the Far Eastern Union which is in the pipeline after EU model. Therefore, the EU Parliament since 1994 has been very active in its efforts to create a UN World Parliament. All of course under the total tacity of "our" politicians and MSM. For this is the greatest treason in history.
In connection with Pamela Geller´s article in the Washington Times as of 30 Dec. 2009 on the Euromediterranean and the importance of the year of 2010 as for the implementation of the common Euromediterranean free trade area as outlined in the Euromediterramean Barcelona Declaration, I was confronted with a political postulation that the Euromediterranean process was dead. No it isn´t. The following will clearly show that this Leviathan is still very much alive.
EUbusiness 5 Jan. 2009: The nascent Mediterranean Union is "very close" to naming its first secretary general, who will be from an Arab country, Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said Tuesday. France announced last month that the foreign ministers of Egypt, France, Jordan, Spain and Tunisia would meet in early January in Cairo to try to revive the grouping.
Right: Heads of state and government at the Euromediterranean Process´10. anniversary celebration 2005
The Euromediterranean process is in an impasse due to 1. An unwillingness on the part of some Arab countries to fulfill their obligations according to the Euromediterranean Barcelona Declaration of 1995 – reaffirmed at the Paris Conference on 13 July 2008, where the Union for the Mediterranean was proclaimed. 2. A lack of EU money due to the current economic crisis 3. The Muslims feel that they have not been able to impose their norms upon the Europeans who are consequently considered haughty by the Muslim master race. So, this must be changed: The President of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Gianfranco Fini, outlined to the congress his guidelines for new Euro-Mediterraean policies, stressing how vital it is that Europe grow out of its attitude of superiority. ''If Europe,'' he said, ''continues in its attitude of supremacy over the Muslim religion,….I think the time has come to reaffirm Sarkozy's insight, focussing on coordinating European norms with those of the countries of the southern shores of the Mediterranean''!!!
This does confirm the temporary impasse: ANSAmed 2O Nov. 2009: Are those 230 projects launched and also financed by the Mediterranean Union now at a standstill? There is a need to boost the Mediterranean Union, a project in which governments appear to have lost interest. This is the task for the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly, (EMPA) said Sergio D'Antoni, speaking as member of the finance committee. Have they been blocked by bureaucracy in Brussels?''. And it is the Middle East, especially, which has often paralysed the activities of the Med Union, it is said in part of the official meeting of the EMPA presidency, which has been expanded to five subject-related commissions: a resolution which should, among other things, urge the Israeli government - to call an immediate halt to settlement activity, and reaffirm the need to set up a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders. Concern is also being expressed, again by the president's office, over the postponement of the foreign ministers' conference of the Med Union, which was due to take place in Istanbul over the coming days, while there is a recommendation that the Union's secretariat, which is to be based in Barcelona, ''should reach full operation in the near future''. But EMPA is also calling for a higher degree of participation in the decisions and the activities of the Secretariat, as well as a controlling and steering role in the management of public funds. EMPA would also like to have a say in the setting up of a Euromed Bank, which is intended to be a branch of the European Investment Bank, D'Antoni asks, but it should be based in a Mediterranean (= Arab) country. The meeting in Cairo) was also attended by the president of the European Parliament, Jerzy Buzek. (ANSAmed)
In my article on the Mission of the EU´s Union for the Mediterranean as of Nov. 9, 2009, I furthermore referred to ANSAmed´s report from the Confindustria meeting on Capri in the autumn of 2009, that the Secretary General of Italy's Foreign Ministry, Giampiero Massolo, invited listeners to have a broader concept of the Mediterranean, also embracing the Gulf states (Franco Frattini, Italian foreign minister, former EU-Commissioner: (The Persian Gulf is to be the 3. coast of the Union for the Mediterranean – ANSAmed 20 Oct. 2009 )) and - one day - Iraq as well, for an inter-regional approach that would combine the Mediterranean, North Africa, and the Gulf. But Italy's Foreign Office, he added, is also working towards ''a global approach.''
This sound dangerous enough to me. But here are more disturbing signs of life from the Euromediterranean monster.
First take a look at this horrifying activity as reflected on this ANSAmed survey. Here is a list of ENPI-funded Euromediterranean projects.
The ENPI is the EU´s financial programme to its 2 partner groups: the Eastern Group - and the Southern (Euromediterranean) Group. The latter receives about 2/3 of the allocated funds - ie. 333 mio euros 2007-2010. For the period of 2007-2013 12 bn euros have been allocate for the 2 partnergroups. Here are the action plans for the Euromediterranean “partner countries”.
EU Press release 9 Oct. 2009, Benita Ferrero Waldner, EU Commissioner for External Relations One of the most obviously beneficial ventures (for future generations) is top of our agenda today – developing an integrated and interconnected Green Energy Market with the Mediterranean and the Gulf. We have already made some progress. We have supported the gradual integration of electricity markets in the Maghreb, and cooperation between Mediterranean energy regulators. We have also supported energy efficiency policies through successful demonstration projects and establishing a regional renewable energy centre in Cairo. And one of the flagship projects of the Union for the Mediterranean is the Euromediterranean Solar Plan.
In the Gulf we have had considerable cooperation over integrating electricity markets and fossil fuels. And we are now increasing our cooperation on renewables, particularly solar, with an agreement to launch a joint research, development and technology platform on clean energy. But these efforts, important though they are, have only brought us so far. Now it is time to commit to measures which will make the vision of an EU-Mediterranean-Gulf Green Energy Market a reality.
(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 5, 2009 - On October 18 and 19 the Economic and Social Councils of the Euromed network will meet in the premises of the Alexandrian Library. The event, announced on the web (www.enpi-info.eu), is sponsored by the European Economic and Social Council and here, and will deal with issues of common interest for the future of the Mediterranean area. The two-day event will be opened by updates on the progress of the Union for the Mediterranean (UFM) and the role played by the Economic and Social Councils (ESC), with representatives of the EU and the Egyptian co-chairmanship of the UFM and European Commission. Another central matter to be examined will be that of the financial and economic crisis in the Euromed region…. and especially the issue of climate change in the Mediterranean area. Maltàs ESC will deal with the matter of the participation of the civil society of Mediterranean partner countries in the future of the Union for the Mediterraneand and in the context of cultural and demographic changes. (ANSAmed).
(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 14 - "Creating a European-Mediterranean free-trade market is still an important objective," said EU commissioner for external relations, Benita Ferrero Waldner, in a speech at the US Chamber of Commerce plenary session in Brussels. "In July we signed our first agreement with Israel," added Ferrero Walder, "and we expect to conclude our negotiations on the liberalisation of services and the right to establish a business in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Israel next year." In the eyes of the EU commissioner, "perhaps the largest regret is that not all the nearby countries on the southern shores - and I am referring to Algeria, Libya and Syria - have taken us up on our offer of closer relations."
(ANSAmed) - REGGIO CALABRIA 21 Oct. - The cities of the Mediterranean are to be seen as a treasure, on which a future marked by peace, respect for diversity and solidarity, and hence prosperity, can be built. It is an ambitious aim, as the Mediterranean cities are well aware, meeting officially in Reggio Calabria for the first time. The cities plan to put themselves forward as the active players in a meeting which must have the individual States as interlocutors, as well as the cultural entities which are present in the territories, from the universities to the associations. The cities have approved a Declaration' to this end, whose first signatories are the Mayor of Calabria, Giuseppe Scopelliti, and the Mayor of Rabat, Fathallah Oualalou. The Declaration' commits the signatories to promoting intercultural dialogue and cooperation, but it is also intended to contribute towards setting up an Euro-Mediterranean area where there is 'peace, stability and development, based on the principle of economic, social and territorial cohesion, in harmony with the objectives of the Mediterranean Union (UPM), and this is the first practicable proposal''.''A common approach towards urban development'' said representatives of the cities ''could re-establish the strategic and geo-political role of the Mediterranean, and suggest mutual advantages for both our shores, in terms of favouring development, employment and trade in the whole region''. The declaration also contains a 'political'' element, where an active role is claimed back for the Mediterranean in favouring regional cooperation between the two shores.The cities will meet again shortly, to show that they are in a hurry: the next meeting will be in Lisbon in January 2010.
MED UNION: NEW EUROMED REGIONAL ASSEMBLY TO START IN JANUARY
(ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 4 - Waiting for the appointment of the secretary-general of the Mediterranean Union (MU), the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM) has been created. Representatives of regional and local bodies in the Euro-Mediterranean area have in fact decided to meet for the first time in Barcelona, on January 21. "To re-launch the Barcelona process, the European Union needs the support of all its partners" explained Van den Brande, "including the local and regional authorities". ARLEM should therefore give a new impulse to the dialogue between the two shores of the Mediterranean Sea, both as instrument for local democracy in the region and as contribution to an exchange of good practices. The inauguration of the newly formed Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly will be hosted by the Catalonian government, in collaboration with the Spanish on-duty presidency of the European Union.
Now this recent and precise report: ANSAmed 9 Dec. 2009: The first summit of Trade ministers from 43 countries in the basin. Additionally needed is the acceleration of negotiations already begun in various sectors, such as agriculture, services, and enterprise establishment, and also the rules for dispute resolution. The next step will be to transform this already existing network into one with intentions beyond free trade. Creating a network of bilateral agreements represents a necessary condition for the economic integration of the Euro-Mediterranean region on the South-South front as well. As a first step toward take-off for a common area on the southern bank of the Mediterranean, the application of the Agadir Agreement between Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt has been somewhat fruitful, but less than generally expected. The final objective is to adopt a road map of concrete actions that will intensify the region's economic integration and launch trade and investments, to achieve a common area of free trade with a long-term horizon beyond 2010. What are the necessary steps for such an ambitious project? From a North-South relations perspective, completing the network of EU Association Agreements, and including also Syria, is necessary. However, enterprises will play a principal role in the Euro-Mediterranean project. Therefore another key point in the meeting tomorrow is putting mechanisms in place to provide tax breaks on investments for companies, starting in 2010. Beyond considerations of an economic and commercial nature, a Euro-Mediterranean free trade area also implies an evaluation of the social impact, first of all in terms of employment.
An EU Press Release as of 8 Dec. 2009: The 8th Union for the Mediterranean Trade Ministerial meeting takes place on the eve of the 2010 target date for the establishment of a Euro-Mediterranean Free Trade Area. Euromed Ministers will endorse the Euromed Trade Roadmap beyond 2010. Every one is keen on the EU money. The EU is happy at its advanced relationship with Morocco.
Sarkozy July 2009: "In the Union for the Mediterranean we will build what we have built in the EU."
ENpi-info 21 Dec. 2009: An integrated transport infrastructure is the linchpin for regional economic integration, leading to increased trade and growth in view of a future Euro-Mediterranean free trade area. At the centre of efforts to develop an effective infrastructure network is the EuroMed Transport Project, providing assistance for the harmonisation of transport frameworks and procedures across the region.
The development of inter-Mediterranean transport is the cornerstone for regional economic integration. It will lead to an increase in trade and a greater movement of passengers between north and south of the Mediterranean, believes Dalila Achour Limam, Assistant Manager and Event Coordinator of the EuroMed Transport Project in Tunis.
Enpi-info 24 Nov.2009: The Euromed Aviation Project’s main mission is to prepare the way for the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean Common Aviation Area (EMCAA) as decided by the Euro-Med Transport Ministers in 2005 and outlined in the 2007 Regional Transport Action Plan (RTAP) for the Mediterranean. It aims at elaborating a Road Map for the implementation of the EMCAA.
The EMCAA will have a far-reaching impact on the Partners with benefits not only in the aviation sector, but also the tourism and economic sectors, the project leader Olivier Turcas says in an interview with the ENPI Info Centre.
The EU Parliament has been especially active in its call for a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly UNPA.
Impasse has existed all along in the now 15–year-old history of the Euromediterranean Process. But the idea of giving it up has never been launched. On the contrary, the Italian foreign ministry now tells us that the Persian Gulf is to be the 3. shore of the Union for the Mediterranean. No wonder. WTO Boss Pascal Lamy points the EU and its expansion out as the model for the world state and world governance:“ the European Community itself is no more than a step towards the organizational forms of tomorrow’s world”. Europe as a new paradigm of global governance.My starting point is the building of Europe as work in progress. It is not complete in any of its dimensions. Not in that of geography. European integration provides us with many useful lessons for global governance.”
Barroso, EU´s new permanent President, Hermann van Rompuy, Lamy are all bilderbergers, i.e. Rockefeller´s men who have only one thought: To have a world government and here established. Says Barroso: “If Europe acts as a single entity and speaks with a single voice, it can become a co-leader in the world, working in partnership with the others. But if it fails to act as a single entity – if it falls prey to 'fragmented power syndrome', to short-termism, to ugly nationalism and chauvinism, - it will be consigned to the sidelines. Europe must choose the first of these options.”
The Euromediterranean area is the inevitable regionalization – as stated by Obama´s mentor, the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski: “We cannot leap into world government through one quick step…. The precondition for eventual and genuine globalization is progressive regionalization because by that we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units.”
The Euromediterranean Process will never be allowed to cease or dissolve, for it is the first piece in the jig saw puzzle of the Trilateral Commission and here, towards building the one world state. Here is the membership list of the Trilateral Commission, in creating a zone across the globe – consisting of the North American Union, the Euromediterranean to the Persian Gulf, Brzezinski´s “Grand Chessboard” including Central Asia, which has to be conquered by the US – and then an EU-like Union between China and ASEAN the ASEM and here assisiting. Other regional economic powers such as Japan, South Korea and the United States are expected to join once this FTA expands. Menon said it might take at least three generations before an integrated Asia moving close to a European Union style economic union. and Australia wants to join the club, too. On this video from 4:10– 4:35 min. you can see the linking of these zones , and here.
After the article by Pamela Geller in the Washington Times, the Euromediterranean Leviathan, which has been kept so successfully secret for now 15 years by politicians and MSM, has roused interest in important blogs - in some cases with very thorough analyses: Mission Europa Netzwerk Karl Martell, and summer patriot, winter soldier, The Atlas Shrugs, The American Thinker, Winkelried, and Politically Incorrect.
And let us not forget: The EU is recruiting 56 mio. Africans (predominatly Muslims) + their families to settle in Europe by 2050.
Nor theat even without this African immigration thel Danes will be in the minority in Denmark between 2035 and 2047 - because the Fabian socialists want it!
Dette er historiens største forræderi.
