New phase of the “war on terror”

New phase of the “war on terror”

Newsletter 2015/01/23 – Question of Liberties

BERLIN (Own report) – German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier
is using his trip to North Africa to promote the new
“counter-terrorism cooperation” with the Arab world. His visits to
Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria will focus not only on expanding economic
cooperation, but particularly on the common struggle “against
terrorism and extremism,” according to the foreign ministry. After her
talks with the Arab League’s Secretary General, Nabil al-Arabi, the
European Union’s foreign policy coordinator, Federica Mogherini had
already announced relevant projects including intensified intelligence
sharing. New “security attachés” will be working out of EU foreign
missions in some of the Arab countries, while keeping contact to their
respective intelligence services. Experts are demanding that
intelligence cooperation be intensified, also within the EU. The
struggle is aimed at the Jihadists, who had achieved their
breakthrough, due to the rearmament by the West and its Middle Eastern
allies waging wars against the governments of Libya and Syria. The
“counter-terrorism cooperation” will strengthen the authoritarian
structures, against which large sectors of the populations of several
Arab countries had been so massively revolting in 2010 and 2011.
