“L’existence nous a été donnée pour exister, et non pour réfléchir l’existence, la respiration pour respirer, et non pour se regarder respirant”. – “L’instant éclair, le silence, les signes évasifs ; c’est sous cette forme que choisissent de se faire connaître les choses les plus importantes.” – “L’ennui, c’est le temps en désordre.” – “Du moment que quelqu’un est né, a vécu, il en restera toujours quelque chose, même si on ne peut dire quoi.” – “La violence : une force faible.” – “La ride est une allusion à la mort.” – “La prière est le désespoir de la raison. “… – Dans le cadre de la Contre-Histoire de la Philosophie de Michel Onfray, une émission en plusieurs parties autour de Vladimir Jankélévitch sur France Culture […}

The Green Prince (A Review): Nothing Obvious Here Too!

Posted by on Oct 17, 2014 in Antisemitism, Books, Doc, Ideas, Jewish, Middle-East, Politics, Racism, Review, Wars |

My review: “Spies like James Bond/007 can appear cool… but what if it were their family, their relatives and their people they were betraying? That type of treason may be nothing to celebrate anymore. One may actually need to hide all of that – and definitely not make a film about it! That is the challenge that the director, Nadav Schirman, has taken on. His previous two other documentaries were also about individuals living undercover: ‘In the Dark Room’ and ‘The Champagne Spy.’ He was also the producer of the successful 2012 ‘No Place on Earth.’ — In our desire to appear smart and in charge, we make fast assessments, ready to speak up and to react. Here, because repeatedly nothing appears as it what it is, the film will challenge most preconceptions. The moral compass for what constitutes one’s alliances seems to be constantly shifting and one is asked to turn oneself inside out. Healthy questions emerge: What constitutes intelligence and security? How do we know what we know? Is it just about those two individuals, Mosab Hassan Yousef and Gonen Ben Yitzhak or is it about us? N.B.: For those who have read Mosab Hassan Yousef’s book ‘Son of Hamas,’ this film is very different than the book!” + Clips […]

Contre-histoire de la philosophie: Hannah Arendt, Hans Jonas & Günther Anders

Posted by on Sep 24, 2014 in Antisemitism, Books, France, Genocide, History, Idées, Jewish, Juif, Media, Middle-East, Politics, Popular, Shoah, Spectacle, Women |

Apparemment Onfray aime trop souvent simplifier pour “engager son public” – c’est bien dommage… Quelque fois cela peut-être utile, mais c’est un couteau à deux tranchants! Malgré une manière désastreuse d’épouser beaucoup trop vite les théories d’Hannah Arendt sur la “collaboration Juive” au Holocauste*, merci beaucoup pour la (ma) découverte de Günther Anders (cf. English bio by Harold Marcuse) et à quel point la critique de Guy Debord dans La Société du Spectacle s’inspirerait d’Anders, une critique décisive de la culpabilité de Heidegger, et le rappel que philosophie et vie ne devraient faire qu’un. (Lanzmann: “La première chose face à une catastrophe pareille, c’est l’humilité.”) – Liens Audio […]

Middle-East-Israel-Palestine: A Sad Complexity Of Extremists

Posted by on Aug 3, 2014 in Antisemitism, French, History, Human Rights, Jewish, Middle-East, Peace, Politics, Security, Time, Wars |

The long view: being taken hostage by extremism (beyond “solutions” & slogans) – La vue longue: pris en otage par l’extrémisme (au delà des “solutions” & des slogans). AMOS OZ: The present hostilities will only stop, unfortunately, when one of the parties or both of them are exhausted. This morning I read very carefully the charter of Hamas. It says that the Prophet commands every Muslim to kill every Jew everywhere in the world. It quotes the Protocols of the Elders of Zion [anti-Semitic diatribe – the ed.] and says that the Jews controlled the world through the League of Nations and through the United Nations, that the Jews caused the two world wars and that the entire world is controlled by Jewish money. So I hardly see a prospect for a compromise between Israel and Hamas. I have been a man of compromise all my life. But even a man of compromise cannot approach Hamas and say: ‘Maybe we meet halfway and Israel only exists on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.’ – Spiegel: Do you sometimes feel isolated with your view on the situation? YUVAL DISKIN: There are plenty of people within Shin Bet, Mossad and the army who think like I do. But in another five years, we will be very lonely people. Because the number of religious Zionists in positions of political power and in the military is continually growing […]
