war-on-terrorFollowing the Paris attacks, does EU counter-terrorism strategy need to change? After the September 11th attacks, European support for the “War on Terror” was high. Large majorities in Britain, France and Germany initially supported the US-led War on Terror, and it was not until the 2003 invasion of Iraq that that support began to evaporate. Even in the post-Bush era, a 2012 German Marshall Fund poll found that 71% of EU respondents approved of US President Obama’s efforts to fight international terrorism.

Experts have long been warning that the EU cannot solely rely on tightening border controls to prevent terror attacks on European soil. Today, in the wake of the 13 November 2015 attacks on Paris that left 129 dead and many wounded, is it time for EU countries to take a more pro-active approach to countering terrorism outside of Europe’s borders?

We had a comment sent in by Natan, arguing that Europe should do more to support the Arab world’s transition towards democracy, and should be much more active in the fight against terrorism.

To get a response, we spoke to Gilles de Kerchove, the EU’s Counter-Terrorism Coordinator. What would he say to Natan?

de-kerchoveI fully share Natan’s view. And that is exactly what the EU Foreign Affairs Council agreed on 9th February 2015, when they decided to be much more engaged in our direct vicinity, i.e. all the countries around the Mediterranean, from Morocco to Turkey.

If you read the conclusions from the meeting, you will see that they are very ambitious and refer to the need for engagement at the highest level, including political engagement, engagement with civil society, and a lot more in terms of capacity building, to help all these countries to beef up their response, because we’re facing the same threat.

If you take the risk of returning jihadists from Syria and Iraq, it is not only a challenge for the EU Member States, but equally for Morocco, Tunisia and other countries. For example, Tunisia already has 3,000 citizens fighting alongside Jabhat Al-Nusra and Daesh… So, I fully endorse what Natan suggests, and that is what will happen.

To get another perspective, we also spoke to Bodil Valero, a Swedish Green MEP and member of the European Parliament Subcommittee on Security and Defence. How would she respond to Natan’s comment?

Bodil Ceballos 0106Of course, we should be working to counter terrorist groups, but we should also try to prevent the root causes of terrorism. In fact, that’s the approach we should be adopting for all EU external affairs; I think we have to do more to prevent problems instead of creating them.

This means, for example, offering greater help to other countries in terms of poverty reduction, and working to fight oppression and uphold civil liberties and human rights internationally.

How can Europe be more active role in the struggle against terrorism? Let us know your thoughts and comments in the form below, and we’ll take them to policymakers and experts for their reactions!

    against “big business” terrorism supported by rogue governments and corruptive relationships? off course! But that will never happen…

    and I have to ask myself if many of these so called terrorism attacks are nothing more than black ops to justify higher control systems on the sleeping populations?

    Not denying that some individuals are criminals, but like we saw in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Angola, etc … today a terrorist tomorrow president!

    Pointless question really, simple answer… yes….in fact the whole world needs to be more active in the fight against terrorism

    As for the comments about “supporting the Arab world’s transition to democracy”, it’s the misguided belief that the Arab world needs democracy that causes more problems than anything. Yes, quite a few people in certain Arab countries would like democracy but there is also a hell of a lot for whom the whole concept of democracy is alien to them and their culture.

    The fact the west appears to be trying to impose its values on the Arab world is the biggest recruitment incentive for terrorists you will ever get

    Europe is the accomplice of global terrorism because its support for the US&UK “war on terror” policy. The subversive war through terror, based on diversions, mediatic intoxication and mass manipulation, that is the accurate definition of terrorism, and that is what the Axe London-Washington-Bruxelles is doing. Can add Tel Aviv to that, because the western governments are using the Israel-Palestinian issues in order to justify their invasions in the Middle East.

    Before coming to any conclusions ask yourself a few very alarming questions. We are told by very bright and well informed people that we are being taken for fools in order to back our various governments in promoting unrest and the chaos they need in order to keep this rotten show on the road.

    Dig deep and don’t take the ranting of propaganda shoved on us by the truck load. Just ask yourself who is gaining what and why? Have an open mind.

    Nope. That’s too late and I’ll advised. Europe should be more involved with rooting out the CAUSES of terrorism. Generally, unhappy people have more reasons to rebel that happy people. Addressing unfairness and inequality world wide would go a long way in resolving terror, eg the Palestinian case being a good example of where more effort is needed. Once that is done, we’ll only be left with the odd depressive kind.

    Arghhh …..remain vigilant, prepared, cooperate, but do not become a US Askari!

    Sorry, but why not “be more active in” accountability/progress updates by tracking the 10 policy areas under the “Juncker Agenda”- so proudly announced in Strasbourg, 22 October 2014- “THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT”- really? A gentle reminder to stay focused: http://ec.europa.eu/priorities/docs/pg_en.pdf

    Priority No 1. “A New Boost for Jobs, Growth and Investment”

    JCJ: “This is why I am proposing an ambitious investment programme. By February 2015, I would like to have put forward this ambitious package for growth, investment, competitiveness and jobs- to mobilise up to € 300 billion in additional public and private investment in the real economy over the next three years.” What happened Mr. JCJ?


    ……lowest priority:

    & No 9. “A Stronger Global Actor”: – trade policy, development aid, participation in international financial institutions (troika?) and neighborhood policy- & an invitation to those who WISH to engage in joint EU missions in crisis zones if needed…….”

    The primary role of elected politicians is the protection of the people who elected them and to claim having to show a piece of paper at border controls is such an inconvenience is merely pandering to the federalist nightmare of a US of E while creating a dream for terrorists, drug dealer & criminals. Could someone please explain why those that would do us harm would take the risk of flying when all they have to do is drive across unguarded borders in Europe ?

    The EU only works as a ‘economic marriage of convenience’ and the fact Schengen makes a few people feel like they live in a Brussels centric utopia is an irrelevance because until the peoples of the 28 countries are asked there can be no true political / social union, but the EU elite already know the answer so are avoiding asking the question, instead using treaties signed but never explained to bypass the wishes of the people.

    The dismal turnout at national referendums (if they were held at all) to join the EU and the ever falling numbers of votes cast at MEP elections coupled with rising nationalism across Europe makes any claim that the peoples of Europe are loving either Schengen or the EU at best propaganda and at worst outright lies.

    Fascism, Nazism, Communism & now Europeanism.

    EU should make its own investigation on terrorism, independently from any country outside EU. The cooperation between EU countries can be improved. We have to know who stands behind the terrorists and provides them money, weapons, who teaches their soldiers, and who helps them promoting their ideas on the Internet and recruit more people. We should not accept in EU people from countries that support terrorism and should not visit such countries and even stop trading with such countries.

    The Middle East is in a similar situation to Europe during the religious wars. There are war lords, clans, regional conflicts which have in part been triggered by the invasion of Iraq and other interventions.

    We can help those that understand what is going on: Turkey, the Sunni that are revolted by ISIS, the Kurds. But only help on an issue by issue basis.

    We’ve helped groups fighting Assad only to find our supplied weapons ending up with jihadis. We help the Kurds in the north of Iraq, but if we arm them very well – then we may start a civil war in Turkey.

    Europe needs to distance itself from America – which has only a short term, simplistic, self-centred, nieve viewpoint. Give our corporations your oil and we will give you McDonalds.

    We won’t get democracy in the area for generations. You need stability and the rule of law, before democracy can thrive.

    Sadly dramatic attempts at easy solutions often make the situation far, far worse.

    Blowback is unintended consequences of a covert operation that are suffered by the aggressor. To the civilians suffering the blowback of covert operations, the effect typically manifests itself as ?random? acts of political violence without a discernible, direct cause; because the public?in whose name the intelligence agency acted?are unaware of the effected secret attacks that provoked revenge (counter-attack) against them

    The Power of Nightmares, subtitled The Rise of the Politics of Fear, is a BBC documentary film series, written and produced by Adam Curtis. Its three one-hour parts consist mostly of a montage of archive footage with Curtis’s narration. The series was first broadcast in the United Kingdom in late 2004 and has subsequently been broadcast in multiple countries and shown in several film festivals, including the 2005 Cannes Film Festival.

    Terrorism in our Country? That’s what we should be asking, real questions that matter to us as citizens… God Bless the USA! Heads Up (Y) FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation Director confirms terrorism investigations in all 50 states, encourages public to speak up! Director Comey says ISIL is changing the game with an aggressive social media campaign.

    http://www.justice.gov/actioncenter/report-crime (Y)

    “It’s a message that goes to troubled souls any where in the United States. As a result we have investigations in every state in the Union that focuses on trying to understand who is consuming that poison,” said Comey.

    Comey says if this is the new norm he’ll have to reconsider the resources it takes for surveillance.

    He also says it creates a conflict between public safety and internet privacy.

    “Those values are increasingly in conflict when lawful court orders in criminal investigations encounter unbreakable encryption and we need to figure out a way as a people how to accommodate both of those values,” said Comey.

    That’s part of the conversation he is having across the country.

    He’s also telling the public we play a role.

    He says if you see something, say something. No matter how insignificant it may seem.

    “When you have a strange feeling about somebody just tell one of us. We’ll check it out, no harm done, or maybe tremendous harm averted,” said Comey.

    If you do have a tip on possible terrorism you can contact your local police department or sheriff’s office and they will get that information to the right people.

    Obviously ISIL has NO religion and nothing to do with it, but you cannot ignore the fact that religion stands at the core of radicalisation: young people follow ISIL because they genuinely believe in its “holy” goals. So the religion perhaps should also be used to counter that tactics, and progressive minds among local religious leaders should be consulted in and engaged with in this process.

    Study the cultures that do not produce terrorism and publish and use the key protective elements. Peace to middle east. Human rights, proper value to individual lives there and everywhere. Teach respect and thankfulness as keys to “heaven” instead of crime and hate. Opportunity to different individuals and groups to get the feeling of being accepted and respected.
