As I understand it, the European Council (heads of government of the 28 states) outlines the strategy, which the Commission is then tasked with implementing. It then proposes legislation that must be agreed to by both the Council of the European Union (ministers of the member states) and the European Parliament.

For everybody's reference, here is a short guide to the EU Institutions on the EU website and an introduction to the EU Commission on their website.
I was reading on another EU forum, that Jucker wants to try to remove the powers of the European Council. I'll see if I can find that link again.

Even Hitler as far as I remember was German .
And your point is...

One can argue on a technicality whether Hitler was Austrian or German, but that is likely irrelevant to this discussion any way.

I agree with you on that. But that does not mean that I would (if I could) silence others for claiming an incorrect viewpoint. I would merely correct them with links to relevant information.
Obie wrote:European law is neither made by the Council of Europe ,
Not you too. There is a difference between the Council of Europe and the European Council.

And I did not say that the European Council makes EU law. I said that it gives the strategic direction that the Commission takes into account when drafting EU laws, which must then be approved by both the Council of the European Union and the EU Parliament.
