Quelle Europe pour demain ?

par Jacques Schoonjans, Editeur

Jeune j’avais rêvé d’une Europe indépendante, forte, fière d’elle, capable de répondre aux défis du futur, une Europe héritière de notre passé et de notre civilisation. Cette Europe des peuples se serait étendue, comme l’aurait dit un jour le Général de Gaule, «de l’Atlantique à l’Oural ».  

Je n’ai jamais eu beaucoup de sympathie pour de Gaulle à qui je reproche notamment l’honteux lâchage de l’Algérie Française, sa haine viscérale à l’encontre du Maréchal Pétain, le héros de Verdun, son orgueil démesuré, un homme qui a trahi ses compatriotes (le 6 juin 1958 à Mostaganem ne déclarait-il pas : « II n’y a plus ici, je le proclame au nom de la France et je vous en donne ma parole, que des Français à part entière, des compatriotes, des concitoyens, des frères qui marchent désormais dans la vie en se tenant par la main »?  et un an plus tard  : « Je considère comme nécessaire que le recours à l’autodétermination soit aujourd’hui proclamé. »
