Amb Bernard-Henri Lévy

Ahir, El País publicava un article del filòsof francès -d’origen jueu- Bernard-Henry Lévy (Beni-Saf, Algeria, 5 de novembre del 1948) titulat “Israel-Gaza: alto a la desinformación” que mereix algunes reflexions.

 

Bernard-Henri Lévy acabava el seu article amb un toc d’alerta: “Confusión de una época en la que se combate a las democracias como si se tratara de dictaduras o Estados fascistas. Israel está en el centro de este torbellino de odio y locura, pero al mismo tiempo, no lo olvidemos, algunas de las conquistas más preciadas, en la izquierda sobre todo, del movimiento de las ideas de los últimos 30 años se ven así en peligro. A buen entendedor….”.

La trajectòria intel·lectual i política de Bernard-Henri Lévy em sembla extraordinària per la seva coherència en la defensa de les llibertats personals, socials i nacionals i el seu frontal combat contra els totalitarismes de tota mena. Aquesta actitud l’ha portat a ésser objecte de tota mena de desqualificacions per part dels que Pierre-André Taguieff anomena “els contra-reaccionaris“. Una mostra d’aquesta persecució inquisitorial dels dogmàtics autoconsiderats d’esquerres contra aquells que pensen per si mateixos n’és l’article d’un tal Pierre Rimbert, “L’homme qui ne s’est jamais trompé”, aparegut a Le Monde Diplomatique, número 670, corresponent al gener d’enguany.

La parcialitat anti-israeliana que denuncia Bernard-Henri Lévy s’ha fet patent als mitjans catalans d’aquest dies: des del Periódico a TV(E)3, passant per Vilaweb, (amb l’honrosa excepció de l’Avui) el tractament informatiu donat al conflicte entre Israel i Palestina ha consistit en equiparar pacifisme amb antisionisme i progressisme amb filopalestinisme. Tot fa preveure la interiorització d’aquest conflicte -en els termes descrits- al si de la societat catalana amb unes conseqüències que hores d’ara són difícils de precisar i de prevenir.

Bernard-Henri Levy és un intel·lectual compromès amb la causa de la llibertat de les persones i els pobles oprimits, (Bòsnia, Kurdistan…) com ho demostra en aqueixa carta oberta a favor de la causa del poble kurd: “Address to the Kurdish Nation“, publicada el proppassat 15 de març a The Word Post. Ahir va presentar el documental “Peshmerga” davant un auditori global com és l’assemblea general de les Nacions Unides, una institució indiferent a la causa nacional kurda i dels altres pobles, com el català, que volen exercir el dret d’autodeterminació.

Dissortadament, no aplica el mateix criteri quan es tracta dels pobles oprimits pels estats-nació euro-occidentals, tan a prop com són del seu estimat París, una actitud que li retreu Philippe Argouarch en l’article “Bernard-Henri Lévy s’en prend aux séparatistes” publicat a l’Agence Bretagne Presse el 8 de setembre del 2014.

Post Scriptum, 12 de genber del 2019.

Malauradament, Bernard-Henri Lévy s’ha implicat en la campanya contra-independentista catalana que menen els integristes d’estat franco-espanyols.

  1. Si un estat es democràtic o feixista no es sap pel nom sinó pels fets, i malauradament es cada cop més sovintejat que els fets desmenteixen el nom. Desprès de tot, la tirania franquista era una democràcia orgànica, i les tiranies marxistes eren democràcies populars.
    El que mata gratuïtament és un assassí, i ho es tant si te passaport siri com si el te israelià. Sobre el Sr. BHL, doncs no dubto que hagi estat en contra de tots els totalitarismes … menys del “seu”. Però no ho fem tots això?
    No soc ni anti res ni pro res, però aquest tema, i la ceguesa dels catalans en la seva estúpida i acrítica adhesió als uns o als altres, ja fot pudor. 

  2. Sota el títol “Els gais d’Israel”, Sebastià Alzamora publica avui a El Singular Digital un interesant article sobre la negativa de la organització del Festival Gai de Madrid a deixar desfilar els representants gais d’Israel… com a represàlia de l’assalt a la flotilla de la pau(?)…
    És una molt bona excusa per a no deixar-los desfilar, així els “tolerants progressistes” no han de donar explicacions d’on son els gais palestins, saudís, àrabs, iranians,… que per desgràcia seva estaran penjats a una forca o en els millors dels casos a la presó… 

  3. El Bernard-Henri Lévy és el personatge que uns dies abans dels assassinats comesos pels pirates i terroriste a sou de l’Estat israelià va dir que aquest Estat tenia un exèrcit moral. Sobretot que els ho preguntin als palestins (massacrats, torturats, humiliats, etc.) per aquest exècit “moral”. A més. el Lévy no sap que exèrcit i moral és un oxímoron.

    I per desinformació les la campanya de propoganda de l’Estat israelià. Només unes preguntes:

    a) Per què els pirates i terroriste a sou de l’Estat israelià que van assaltar els vaixells que es dirigien cap a Gaza no mostren les gravacions senceres que van confiscar als segretats dels vaixells atacats? El fet que no ho facin alguna cosa vol dir. A més, per què no les hi han retornat als segrestats?

    b) Per què no accepten una comissió d’investigació internacional, amb autòpsies independents dels cadàvers, anàlsii forense del vaixell, etc.?

    c) Per què van tallar les comunicacions abans del seu acte terrorista?

    Per acabar us copio un text sobre la desinfomació i propganda (en tinc algun més):

    Israel’s propaganda about the Gaza flotilla is
    aimed at delegitimising the activists

    06.07.2010 | Tribune Magazine

    Before civilian blood hit the deck of the ill-fated Mavi
    Marmara, the Israeli government, IDF and right-wing press had already
    launched their PR offensive.

    The propaganda battle had begun the previous Friday with official
    statements characterising the activists as violent terrorist
    sympathisers. To steal a word from Israeli military jargon, such
    statements were directed at ’delegitimising’ the flotilla’s passengers,
    who, stripped of their rights as people, could now expect the brutality
    routinely directed at Israel’s perceived enemies.

    Phase two followed on Monday before the attack. Media and
    communication channels from the boats were scrambled, preventing all
    but one Al-Jazeera journalist from broadcasting live footage. Mobile
    phones were later jammed for the duration of the attack. Phones and
    laptops were confiscated and remain impounded.

    As reports of the massacre hit the wires, prompting outrage around
    the world, the navy revealed their version of events. At this time
    there could be no contradiction, as all activists and journalists were
    being quietly herded to Ashdod without means of communication to the
    outside world.

    Before they arrived stories of the lynch mob had been widely
    disseminated. Foreign Ministry Deputy Danny Ayalon terrified the
    world’s media that morning, announcing the aid flotilla was in fact an
    “armada of hate and violence in support of the Hamas terror
    organization. The organizers are well-known for their ties to Global
    Jihad, Al-Qaeda and Hamas. They have a history of arms smuggling and
    deadly terror.” Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu continued in the same
    vein, “they were mobbed, they were clubbed, they were beaten, stabbed,
    there was even a report of gunfire. Our soldiers had to defend
    themselves”.

    The IDF information channels were full of accounts from the real
    victims, Israeli commandos. One frightened young man, still in a state
    of shock and disbelief reported “we came to talk, but they came to
    fight”. One Naval Special Forces Commander stated on Tuesday that
    “there were terrorists who wanted to kill us. I cannot explain it any
    other way.” Meanwhile a steady stream of videos was released by the IDF
    to bolster their story. 13
    videos have been uploaded to the their YouTube channel
    .

    Meanwhile journalists not on the flotilla have been banned from
    entering the interrogation facility at Ashdod port. The Independent
    reports IDF officials fanned out through the crowd of reporters outside
    and on Jonah’s Hill overlooking the facility, recounting the military’s
    version of events.

    But for all the speed and efficiency with which the military built
    their defence, holes began to emerge. First the Free Gaza movement
    released a statement that “under darkness of night, Israeli commandoes
    dropped from a helicopter onto the Turkish passenger ship, and began to
    shoot the moment their feet hit the deck.”

    This is confirmed by video reports from journalists aboard the
    flotilla during the attack, who detail the use of teargas and stun
    grenades as well as live ammunition, making no mention of violence from
    the activists. Al Jazeera confirmed that Israeli commandos continued to
    fire even when a white flag had been raised. IDF claims that
    passengers used live rounds were not backed up by any independent
    sources aboard the ship.

    Report of live fire against the army initially suggested the ships’
    passengers were armed. The IDF later admitted this was untrue,
    subsequently claiming two handguns had been taken from soldiers and
    used against them. This morning the IDF released a video of soldiers
    taking fire “from all directions”. The video does not show the origin
    of the shots, but the volume generated is clearly incompatible with two
    hand guns. The dialogue between two soldiers is a little too on
    message.

    Scaling down the claims of live fire, army spokesmen have taken to
    broadcasting pictures of the tools found aboard. Among them are bags of
    marbles and an angle grinder, allegedly a weapon “used to saw off
    metal railings used to hit soldiers”. Little to suggest the ensuing
    massacre was a proportional response. Stretching credibility, Foreign
    Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor told us “we havent inspected the ship
    yet”, despite soldiers turning up any object that could conceivably
    have been used in violence, including parts of the ship itself. Palmor
    suggested more serious weapons could yet be found, recalling memories
    of Saddam’s WMDs. Palmor was unwilling to contradict the claims of
    ’Free Gaza’ activists that “every item on board each ship had been
    inspected by port authorities and manifests issued”.

    The focus now is on establishing links between global terror
    networks and the flotilla. To this end most of the attention has been
    directed toward the Turkish humanitarian group IHH, drawing on the
    supposedly independent NGO ’Intelligence and Information Centre’, which
    is funded and staffed by army officials. The group have published a
    report in which Danish security services accuse the IHH of funding
    terrorist groups.

    Given that the Afghan groups referred to have taken funding from a
    colourful array of sources (the White House and Downing Street) and
    that Hamas has itself been funded by Israel in the 1980s against the
    Palestinian Authority, it would be unwise to dismiss these claims out
    of hand. But even the Danish report describes only a fractional
    minority of the IHH to have any links whatsoever with these groups.
    Given that IHH members made up a small percentage of the Mavi Marmara’s
    600 passengers, which included hundreds of unaffiliated citizens from
    dozens of other nations, Palmor’s claim “terror elements were not a
    minority” is poorly founded. When asked if he believed the flotilla
    intended to supply arms to Hamas he commented “that is the reason we
    were concerned. They are establishing a supply line to Hamas. If there
    were not weapons on this ship, they will be on the next one.” So pity
    the Rachel Corrie, still en route to Gaza, carrying such dubious
    individuals as Nobel peace prize winner Mairead Maguire and former UN
    diplomat Denis Halliday.

    Smearing of the IHH has been undermined by today’s debunking of
    another piece of army fiction. The IDF had claimed the five ships other
    than the Mavi Marmara were re-directed peacefully. Greek activist
    Dimitris Gielalis from the Sfendoni vessel disagrees, “they came up and
    used plastic bullets, we had beatings, we had electric shocks, any
    method we can think of, they used”. Similar accounts have emerged from
    the other ships.

    Within Israel chinks have emerged in the united front. While
    Netanyahu and Barak have praised their armed forces, dissenting Knesset
    members have made their voices heard “The crimes of the pirate
    government in killing some of the sail’s participants put the
    government beyond international and human law. Tyrants like Bibi and
    Barak will find themselves in the suitable place in the garbage can of
    history”, said MK Barake of the Democratic Front for Peace and
    Equality. Even the staunch nationalists of the Jerusalem Post agreed
    the navy had “erred strikingly” and would now be “overwhelmed in the
    media”. MK Haneen Zoubi, on board the Mavi Maria reported “the army
    wanted many deaths to terrorise us”.

    As facts emerge from those onboard the flotilla, more holes are
    shot through the official version of events. As the façade crumbles,
    the cover up grows more obvious. Israel may finally be held to account
    for its crimes. This time it wont go away.
