Globalizing European security 17.12.2013

By Javier Solana Former EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Secretary-General of NATO, and Foreign Minister of Spain. He is currently President of the ESADE Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics and Distinguished Fellow at the Brookings Institution. Global security - a safe and peaceful environment free of conflict - is a public good. In other words, all of the world's citizens and countries benefit from it, regardless of whether they contribute to supplying it. Given this, free riders (those who enjoy the benefits of the good without investing in its provision) are likely to be plentiful. But, when it comes to global stability, the world simply cannot afford a free-riding Europe. To be sure, given Europe's violent past, the European Union's greatest contribution to international security has been to ensure stability in its own region. Today, nearly a century after the outbreak of World War I, peace and stability are firmly entrenched in Europe. Other regions, however, are volatile and unstable. For example, strategic tinderboxes like the Middle East and Southeast Asia lack the regional security structures with which Europe is endowed. The Middle East's geographic proximity means that Europe cannot ignore it, while it would be folly to ignore Southeast Asia's economic weight. The EU is the world's largest economy, with annual GDP of more than €15.5 trillion ($21.3 trillion), and its greatest trading power, accounting for 20% of world trade. Clearly, the EU should aspire to increase its contribution to global security beyond maintaining peace among its member states. This is no time for Europe to rest on its laurels - particularly with the United States moving to extract itself from two wars and confronting isolationist urges. Enter this month's European Council meeting: on December 19-20, heads of state and government from the EU's 28 member countries will convene to discuss the Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP). Throughout the discussions, a forward-looking, ambitious vision must be maintained in order to bring a truly global European security strategy into view. Unfortunately, in national governments and EU institutions alike, the leadership needed to realize this strategic vision is lacking. The summit will face several hurdles from the outset. For starters, the ongoing consequences of simultaneous economic, political, and institutional crises continue to determine the European agenda. Realizing a long-term vision is more difficult than ever when so many short-term imperatives - reviving growth and employment, winning elections, and re-engaging a distrustful public amid growing populist sentiment, to name just a few - materialize simultaneously. In this environment, deepening Europe's defense and security integration would appear to be low on the list of priorities. But the opposite is true: further development of the CSDP is essential to the survival of the European way of life. This month's Council will lay the foundations for the CSDP's further development by addressing three main topics: operational efficiency, defense capabilities, and the state of the European defense industry. If the EU's defense and security policy is to be strong, global, and effective, it is imperative to take advantage of both the specialization and pooling of member states' technology and resources. As national budgets shrink under the effects of austerity, the EU should review member states' spending on security. It is senseless for each national government to invest limited resources identically. This moment holds potential: spending cuts could be transformed into an opportunity to coordinate and integrate Europe's defense industry, thus maximizing overall efficiency. The objective must be to boost European security integration (in its broadest sense), lifting Europe to the forefront of global security. As member states advance along this path, propelled forward by technological and operational excellence and innovation, they will find avenues to eliminate unnecessary spending and optimize resource use. Europe's defense industry will not be able to make progress without a well-functioning market - open, transparent, and with equal opportunities for all European suppliers. Advances in the defense industry lead to significant positive externalities, such as civil-military synergies and investment in research and development, which is fundamental to growth, innovation, and future competitiveness. A critical component in the coordination and proper functioning of Europe's security and defense policy is the European Defense Agency. At the upcoming summit, leaders should reiterate the importance of the EDA, whose budget has remained frozen at the insistence of certain member states. It would be irresponsible to treat December's Council meeting as just another summit. Europe and an increasingly unstable world need a viable framework for global security. A fully developed CSDP - itself the cornerstone of further European integration - must be a fundamental component of such a system. Copyright: Project Syndicate

Snowden: US and Israel spied on Solana

by M. Á. M. Diariocritico 28/10/2013
"Everyone knows that American technology for espionage is shared-in two-way-by Israel. It has been so since the creation of the Jewish state and is especially in these current times to curb Islamic fundamentalism. 
Trouble is that, as happens with the U.S., which uses cutting-edge technology to spy on their own 'partners' and' friends', the Israeli secret service Mossad, does the same and is dedicated to exhale his European friends. Israel has spied on, at least, the Spaniard Javier Solana while he was Secretary General of the Council of the European Union (between October 1999 and November 2009), a position he had rigged the High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, popularly known as "Mr. CFSP" (in English, Mr. CFSP ). In this capacity, Solana had become the main face of the European Union diplomacy, although the European Commission had its own external relations portfolio. Now, thanks to the leak of former CIA analyst Edward Snowden , now known that Solana was spied by the United States, as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and expected the Spanish president José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero , but Solana himself confirmed in the Cadena Ser that also spied Israel, previously unpublished data now, and that espionage was discovered in a cleaning operation in the corporate headquarters. Anyway, with friends like these, who needs enemies?"

thanks sister JB!!: Solana VIP guest in Iran !

Iran’s president-elect Hasan Rouhani was to be officially endorsed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for a four-year term on Saturday afternoon, at a ceremony attended by senior Iranian officials. Rouhani will take an oath of office in the Iranian parliament on Sunday, an inauguration ceremony for which the Islamic Republic sent out invitations to world leaders last month. Israel and the United States were not invited.
Rouhani will then have two weeks to name his cabinet and the parliament will have have 10 days to review the candidates, AFP reported.
According to Iran’s Press TV, the inauguration ceremony Sunday will be attended by the presidents of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Armenia, North Korea, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Sudan, Sri Lanka and Togo; the prime ministers of Syria and Swaziland; the vice presidents of Nicaragua, Tanzania, Cuba and Ghana; the foreign ministers of South Africa, India, Brazil, Turkey, Mauritania, Sri Lanka, Burundi and the Palestinian Authority; and the parliamentary speakers of Russia, Venezuela, Algeria, Azerbaijan, the UAE, Uzbekistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Former European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana will reportedly attend as a special guest.
Rouhani replaces Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose 8-year presidency was marked by confrontation with the West over Iran’s nuclear program, economic suffering due to an increase in global sanctions, and persistent denial of the Holocaust.
The president-elect pledged to follow a “path of moderation” after winning a landslide victory in Iran’s June 14 presidential election. He promised greater openness over the country’s nuclear program, which has placed it at odds with the West.
Rouhani was believed to have garnered the votes of Iran’s more reform-minded voters, even though he is a veteran of the ruling clerical establishment and his candidacy was authorized by Khamenei.

On Friday, Rouhani attracted world attention when he called Israel an “old wound” at an event for International Quds Day in Iran, attending by millions. Earlier in the day, he was misquoted with media outlets reporting that he had called for the “wound… to be removed,” a statement promptly and sharply criticized by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“There is an old wound on the body of the Islamic world, under the shadow of the occupation of the holy lands of Palestine and Jerusalem,” read the corrected ISNA quote by Rouhani. Netanyahu subsequently rolled back his response.
In his remarks Friday, Rouhani also expressed doubts about the possibility of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal as the two sides resumed negotiations in Washington last week.
“Israelis show a compromising face to the world but continue their expansionism in practice,” Rouhani said, according to Fars, another semiofficial news agency. “This rally is a reminder that Muslim people will not forget their historical right and they will resist oppression and invasion.”

The Jesuits have, with Solana and Pique, a manifesto for democratic regeneration

"In a context in which the official voices of the Catholic hierarchy have not yet been delivered, through a pastoral or through a similar, over the poor economic situation and social and political drift of our country and right now that bloom several civil society initiatives in this direction, the Society of Jesus has decided to take the lead and take a first step in this direction with a manifesto in favor of "democratic regeneration of public life in Spain" to be presented today in Madrid . The text, which emanates from teachers and scholars of Jesuit universities in our country, withDeusto, Comillas and ESADE in the lead, will be presented at a ceremony in the former ministers involved also Javier Solana and Josep Piqué , journalist Jose Antonio Zarzalejos and philosopher Daniel Innerarity .
Universities and higher education institutions of the Jesuits, coordinated under the name Unijes-Jesuit Universities, want to contribute, from civil society, to "overcome the current situation of impairment in social, political and economic afflicting the country" , just as have the initiative in a statement. Always, "from the Christian humanism" but open to other sensitivities.
His statement includes, in fact, claims and put forward by different sectors of society, such as the need for a new law on parties and a new electoral law, and makes claims about how the markets are imposing on governments and people .
Among other issues, the Jesuit universities demand more separation, more real and effective, of the branches of government , greater transparency on the part of institutions, adjusting the balance of party politics  in favor of finding great consensus on a new model land to continue to be based on the principles of cohesion and solidarity. 
Carlos Losada , Unijes CEO, explained that the initiative has been brewing since last November and has been a clamor within their own universities. "The initiative is of some concern of teachers and scholars of the centers of the deterioration of public life in Spain," he says. "We have been working hard to contribute something to society other than more noise, because there is a lot of noise, but it's something proactive," he concludes.
The initiative is not officially part of the Society of Jesus, but of their universities, but, as acknowledged by the Losada, the Company is aware of all the steps that have been taken. In his public presentation, which will take place today in the Aula Magna of the Universidad Pontificia de Comillas, involved Javier Solana , President of ESADEgeo, and Josep Piqué , Chairman of Vueling, representing two different political sensibilities and as people who are away from forefront of political life. Intervene also the philosopher Daniel Innerarity , director of the Institute for Democratic Governance and José Antonio Zarzalejos , acting as moderator, and is, in turn, an alumnus of the University of Deusto."

great German article connecting Solana with AoC

from german googletranslated:
"Do you know the "Alliance of Civilizations"?
The "Alliance of Civilizations", "Alliance of Civilizations" (AoC), and as the strategists prefer for obvious reasons., Under the guise of the United Nations Was appointed as Director Matthew Hodes, who is concealed neither the German nor Englich Wikipedia despite its international offices. The focus is on Europe and Asia, and particularly on the relationships and conflicts between the Western and predominantly Muslim world. One of the claims is the fight against the different shades of extremism.
Of petrapez | May 31, 2013
On July 14, 2005 UN Secretary General Kofi Annan gave the former NATO Secretary General Solana, renamed the idea to Kolonialvorherrschaft birthday as an initiative of the UN: the Rumi Army Auxiliary Force
In 2003, the N.A.T.O. wrote the paper "A Secure Europe in a Better World - European Security Strategy". The paper, based on old Hegemonialansprüchen, end of December 2003 was presented in Brussels for the establishment of a "regulated world order."
In this new world there is no room for states that do not claim to leadership with the provisions of the NATO countries subject (quote: "The European Union and the United States have a powerful force for good in the world") - whose governments have are replaced by different routes and conditioned accordingly.
The undisguised threat: "To those who are not ready for this reversal should be clear that they have to pay a price ...". A few paragraphs later, it is clear: "... with more flexible armed forces, mobile forces ... especially with the establishment of a defense agency."
Bluntly and naturally without repentance is also found that "is followed in almost all major operations, military efficiency civilian chaos", which is then cleaned with the appropriate resources.
In view of the current situation to arm the enemies of the State of Syria this passage reeks of cynicism maximum "joint operations to disarm warring parties ...".
Numerous think tanks, military and civilian structures and organizations emerged in recent decades and the presence to achieve these goals. Quote from above pamphlet: "We need to develop a strategy culture that promotes early, rapid and when necessary, robust intervention.".
One of these organizations was founded on the basis of the Solana paper in 2004:
The "Alliance of Civilizations", "Alliance of Civilizations" (AoC), and as the strategists prefer for obvious reasons., Under the guise of the United Nations Was appointed as Director Matthew Hodes, who is concealed neither the German nor Englich Wikipedia despite its international offices. The focus is on Europe and Asia, and particularly on the relationships and conflicts between the Western and predominantly Muslim world. One of the claims is the fight against the different shades of extremism and conflicts with religions.
The eternal candidate for EU membership, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the former Social Democratic Prime Minister of Spain, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has been advanced as initiators, the latter won the elections as a reward on 14 March 2004 very "surprising" and his Spanish Socialist Workers' Party. Under Zapatero's government (2004 to 2011) was in 2004 by the Spanish opposition to the "European Constitution" abandoned. Since that was a spineless submission to the regime in Brussels with the attendant out the country.
Erdogan and Zapatero did so because now the United Nations on 21 September 2004 proposed the idea of ​​an initiative "Alliance of Civilizations", which together matched by Spain in December 2005 with the Arab League and shortly before the anniversary of the Madrid attacks with the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on 9 March was presented in Madrid in 2005.
The contents of the "idea" corresponds exactly to the specifications mentioned above Solanas' 2003 security doctrine "of NATO as well as the objectives of the Union for the Mediterranean superpower of Europe, also known as the Barcelona Process. Javier Solana de Madariaga was 1995-1999 Secretary of N.AT.O. Then from 1999 until end of November 2009 then served as Secretary General Solana, the Council of the European Union and High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and in addition he had not by chance since November 25, 1999 presided as General of the Western European Union ( WEU).
As the AoC High Representative no less than Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser was appointed from 1 March 2013 from Qatar Ban Ki-moon and replaced the former President of Portugal, Jorge Sampaio, the Secretary-- man of the emirate with forty years of career in the UN and numerous international bodies. In 1972, he was attaché at the Embassy of Qatar in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1975, he worked in his country's embassy in Islamabad in Pakistan and was then in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates to the Consul General of Qatar to August 1981.
From 1998 to 2011 Al-Nasser was as Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Qatar to the United Nations, and represented his country in the United Nations Security Council during the two year term of Qatar from 2006 to 2007. In December 2006, he was President of the Security Council at this time were a series of measures to "complex peace and security issues, including international cooperation to combat terrorism" taken. In 2009 he became an honorary member of the Foreign Policy Association in New York.
To deepen the impact of the West on the political opinions of other states all the means available to be mobilized to gain influence in society without the backers are publicly by the "Alliance".
So FRIDE is one of the think tanks in Europe Grandmaster for global action (for global action): "Our mission is to inform policy and practice in order to Ensure did the EU plays a more effective role in supporting multilateralism, democratic values, security and sustainable development. "and, the actual main reason is the" fragile states and energy security. "
The UN body has a money fund and a task force to assess their spies and analysts, the situation, and an army of internet trolls - the "media-reaction force" that seeks social networks with comments, create groups and postings to influence. Guess again, where the last training took place: in the Kingdom of Jordan in Amman on 21 to 22 April 2013.
Not by chance is swarming social networks including Facebook pages and groups just as before with Rumi quotes, pictures with sayings, promises of salvation, the same methods to Scientology is no coincidence with their brain-washing, because on the first Forum of the "Alliance" in January 2008, which was dedicated to the youth, also took Paulo Coelho alongside politicians, representatives of foundations and religious organizations, youth organizations and the media to think up some initiatives and projects. Coehlo is intimately connected to the Spanish royal house. Its been well filled page on Facebook is currently deserted.
Even Ban Ki-moon, a former South Korean foreign minister and Secretary General of the United Nations, held on 26 June 2007 at the UN Headquarters Rumi a party to the participants for a few hours internalization of the gentle teachings of the old master by the thoughtfulness could provide show.
Peace, respectful interaction without regard to origin and personal happiness wish all people, but they need to realize the designed limes and not fall into the trap malicious psychopaths nothing else in mind than to disguise sent their plans to lull the feelings and the understanding of the actual events to distract.
Popular people, as popular actor and successful music stars, the "14 ways" as ambassadors to spread the ideas of the AoC far below the unsuspecting gullible public.
This alliance is particularly insidious because it has the target group in the visor, which is committed to save the world from destruction by the "elite". However, these same people and their sponsors continue to sit their plans utilizing appropriate actions.
Among the recent political activities was on Monday, May 28, a journey of the High Representative (or the High Priest of Qatar) to Ankara, where probed Al-Nasser and Erdogan developments in the Middle East to Syria and Palestine.
The government of Qatar, Al-Nasser raised by his office as Secretary General of the UN-NATO-EU-clubs to the rank of "Minister". Thus it needs to run without a conflict of interest to fear the instructions of his government in Doha, the objectives are also those of the allies in Washington and Brussels.
As one of the youngest members of the "Alliance of Civilizations" received on May 30, 2013, the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, the UN Representative for the "Alliance of Civilizations", Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser. Both were confident that relations between Azerbaijan and the UNAOC would continue to expand. Azerbaijan plays an important role as the focal point of safeguarding the interests of the West to secure the natural gas and oil deposits.

He clarified his extremist ideology in the book "The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order" ("The clash of civilizations and the new edition of World Order"). Samuel P.

The ideas and goals of the "Alliance of Democracies" was published in May 2004 in the Washington Post, the first time to the public. Other publications on the topic followed.
The idea for the military organization is characterized by the think-tank Princeton Project on National Security and the UN refers to the sidelines as an organization that would no longer be needed. The UN had been created only for the purpose of preventing war between great nations. After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc this danger no longer exists now.
