The Walls will fall from within

The walls will fall from within!

Israel has no hope, its leadership is crumbling down, their political figures start pointing fingers to each other for the state of affairs of the Zionist entity, the  disbanding of the heads of the state will lead the Apartheid State to finally meet its end.
The avalanche that started rolling in 2005 when the Boycott Sanctions and Divestment movement started to take form is rolling down stronger and bigger, together with the recent assault to the Gaza strip that left half millions homeless,  indiscriminately high number of civilians killed have the eyes and ear of the world in Israel judging the ‘Jew State’ as the fascist dictatorship, the killing machine.  Israel has been called Genocidal, psychopath that executed thousands of civilians in different events,, the latest this last summer that killed more than 2500 Palestinians. Israel list of extrajudicial killings  is long, the number of victims in Palestine since Israel was inserted in the Middle East number in the hundred of thousands, the refugees in the millions.  Over the years Israel color of victim have wore out to expose its true colors.
The Palestinian lands were illegally given to a group of European victims of the Nazi Holocaust in 1947 in a well crafted plan to disposes  millions of native of their lands and homes

Leftist MK Stav Shaffir (Labor), a former leader of the social protest movements, hailed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s decision Tuesday night to disband the coalition government, firing ministers Yair Lapid and Tzipi Livni.
“The time has come for the public in Israel to internalize that and act together with us to finally replace the government in Israel,” said the young leftist MK, who has vocally opposed the Jewish presence in Israel’s Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria.
Former Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) chief Carmi Gillon on Saturday night launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government.

“Israel is headed today by a bunch of pyromaniacs and is being led by an egomaniac to its final destruction,” said Carmi Gillon, who spoke at a demonstration by leftists protesting against the Jewish State Law outside the Prime Minister’s residence in Jerusalem.

“The Jewish State Law will eat the body of the entire nation like a cancer. The continuation of the radical and messianist policy on the Temple Mount will bring about a Gog and Magog war against the Jewish people,” he added.

This is the side of Israeli politics seldom seen by the western world and harsh words coming from a man who was once responsible for Israel’s domestic security.

The Gatekeepers: In New Film, Ex-Shin Bet Chiefs Denounce Occupation, Compare Israel to Nazi Germany

DemocracyNow.org – Amidst a spate of killings by Israeli forces of unarmed Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, we turn to the stunning Oscar-nominated documentary, “The Gatekeepers.” The film brings together six former heads of Israel’s internal security agency, the Shin Bet, collectively speaking out for the first time ever. They detail their methods against Palestinian militants and civilians in the Occupied Territories, including targeted killings, torture, recruiting informants, and the suppression of mass protests during two Intifadas. But in doing so, they also criticize the occupation they were assigned with defending, and warn successive Israeli governments have endangered their country’s future by refusing to make peace. We’re joined by the film’s director, Dror Moreh.

The Holocaust Card always handy


by Marivel Guzman

"Use of the swastika by Nazism is linked to the fact that it is a strong symbol, seductive and captivating look. In this sense, served the purposes of Nazi propaganda appeal to the masses"

Two important meanings to the direction of rotation of the swastika. Benign sense counterclockwise, luck. Sense evil time, chance. “Use of the swastika by Nazism is linked to the fact that it is a strong symbol, seductive and captivating look. In this sense, served the purposes of Nazi propaganda appeal to the masses” desconstruindo-o-nazismo.blogspot.com

 

“The world’s most wanted Nazi criminal, Adolf Eichmann’s second hand-in-command, died four years ago in Syria at the age of 98, the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Sunday, citing the testimony of a former German secret service agent deployed in the Middle East,” says The Times of Israel.

How the Simon Wiesenthal Center got a hold of that secret agent’s testimony?

Things are not going as planned with ISIS and the agenda to depose Assad, the president of Syria, now, Israel has to use the holocaust card again to refresh those pitiful memories of Jews dying in concentration camps in Europe, linking Syria with the worse Nazi, what a better moment to bring up the ‘news’ of Eichmann’s ‘best man who send 128,000 Jews to the camps’. If you notice the news is not about Adolph Eichmann that man history books says was the Holocaust architect, but about Alois Brenner.

How the writer knows that Alois Brenner was “described by Eichmann as his “best man,” another question I ask. Israel seems to know the secrets of Nazi Germany!

Now, I ask the ?question, who is this ‘former German secret service agent deployed in the Middle East?’ Would this former German secret service agent be around 100-year-old by now? if he was German secret service agent during the Nazi Germany this article tries to allude, that would had been right before 1945 at the end of the WWII, also this “service agent deployed in the Middle East,” is this means, he was deployed in what is now occupied Palestine, aka Israel? ,if we make memory there was no Israel then at least not before 1945, so, where exactly in the Middle East? who were the Middle East countries allies of the enemies of Germany that needed to be spied upon? This questions bring us to this, Operation paperclip!

We have received information from a former German secret service agent who had served in the Middle East who said that Brunner was dead and buried in Damascus,” Zuroff told The Sunday Express on Sunday.

“Given his age it would not be surprising and the information came from someone who we consider reliable.”

 

We should consider unreliable any information coming out of the Zionist Entity.

In 1945, Operation Overcast (renamed Operation Paperclip for the paper clips attached to the dossiers of the most “troublesome cases”) began, says Annie Jacobsen.
Jacobsen says, that more than 1,600 Germans were secretly recruited to develop armaments “at a feverish and paranoid pace that came to define the Cold War.
“Although some of these men had been Nazi Party members, SS officers and war criminals, they were valued as vital to American national security.” by Annie Jacobsen in an article written for the New York Times, on Feb, 28, 2014

If Israel is the sacrosanct ally of the United States, and Israel exist because of the U.S., this means that part of these 1600 Nazi members of the S.S were working directly with and for Israel.
Now, going back to Syria, ISIS and the whole mess in the Middle East, why the Simon Wiesenthal Center comes out with this “news” that first and all it is 4 years old, how is that when Syria is in turmoil the news is available?
Like a said, do not believe anything that comes out of Holocaust, Inc.
Marissa Newsman, the writer of this opinion piece made sure to name in the first paragraph Adolf Eichmann, the bogie man of Nazi Germany, even though this article is about Alois Brunner.
In a review in amazon.com for the Memories of Simon Wiesenthal, Scamp Lumm writes the following

Simon Wiesenthal, the most famous Nazi war criminals’ most successful tracker, even managed to find the SS agent who arrested Anne Frank in Amsterdam. I’ve just read how he trailed Joseph Menegele, the malevolent experimental doctor of Auschwitz, to the outposts of Paraguay. He was never apprehended….”

 

Now I ask, how a concentration camp survivor that has lost everything, properties, family, money finds the resources to become Nazi Criminal tracker?
What’s so amazing to me is Wiesenthal’s outlook despite having lost everything, and especially family members, he wasn’t motivated by hate or revenge in the work he did hunting for Nazis, says Scamp Lumm

The Holocaust Industry written by Norman  Finkelnstain can give you more light on the exploitation of the Jews that died during the WWII.

“The Double Shakedown, in which I documented the Holocaust industry’s blackmail of European governments in the name of “needy Holocaust victims” and then the shakedown of Holocaust victims by the Jewish organizations that pocketed the “Holocaust compensation” monies. Norman Finkelnstein

61 people were killed in Friday alone, Saturday 10, the tally is 309 Palestinian killed so far in this 17 days of slaughter. But who is counting right?


Source: Ma’an News Agency
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — 22 Palestinians were killed overnight with at least ten killed just since day break on Saturday as Israeli forces continued their military offensive against the Gaza Strip by air, sea, and land for the twelfth day, Palestinian medical sources said.

The killings follow the deadliest day in the conflict so far, after Israel killed at least 52 Palestinians and injured more than 400 on the first day of their ground invasion of the besieged coastal enclave.

Spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra said on Saturday that Israeli forces had “committed a massacre against Palestinian civilians” in the Khan Younis district in the southern Gaza Strip overnight, killing seven.

He identified the victims as 20-year-old Yahya Bassam al-Serri, Muhammad Bassam al-Serri, 17, Mahmoud Ridha Salihiyya, 56, Mustafa Ridha Salihiyya, 21, Wasim Ridha Salihiyya, 15, Muhammad Mustafa Salihiyya, 22, and Ibrahim Jamal Kamal Nasr, 13.

Al-Qidra also said that 27-year-old Raed Walid Laqan was killed in Khan Younis by an Israeli attack on a home belonging to the Tartouri family.

In addition, 30-year-old Said Ali Issa was killed in Juhor Addik neighborhood in the central Gaza Strip near al-Bureij refugee camp.

34-year-old Ahmad Mahmoud Hasan Aziz was killed by an Israeli missile on his home in Abraj al-Nada in the northern Gaza Strip overnight as well.

 

Saturday morning’s deaths bring the total death toll of 12 days of Israeli military offensive in Gaza to 309 in addition to 2268 injuries, according to al-Qidra.

The spokesman highlighted that Friday was the deadliest day of Israel’s military aggression on Gaza with 52 Palestinians killed as of midnight.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health confirmed that 71 children, 25 women and 17 elderly people have been killed in Israel’s assault on Gaza as of Friday night.

Israel launched its assault on the Gaza Strip — which it has dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” — in response to rocket fire from the area, which had increased in the weeks before the operation due to a massive Israeli military operation in the West Bank.

10 Palestinians died, more than 130 were injured, and more than 600 Hamas-affiliated individuals were arrested during that operation, which was launched following the disappearance of three Israeli youths in June.

Israel accused Hamas of being behind the disappearance, and in addition to the assault on the West Bank launched nightly airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, which has been under a full economic blockade for the last seven years.

Hamas, however, denied the charges, and many have accused Israel of using the subsequent deaths of the three Israeli teenagers as a pretext for a widespread assault on the group.

Gazawans have no place to run for cover they live in an open prison surrounded by 25-cement-wall and bared wires in three fronts and Egyptian border sealed on Rafah.

This is an example of how these Palestinians died. The following video shows a Palestinian apartment building being destroyed by an Israeli missile.
This house being destroyed by an Israeli missile housed 5 families of total 45 people or more. As a punishment for living in the same apartment building of a relative wanted by Israel the whole apartment building is destroyed rending homeless the other families.
The IDF sends mobile messages to the people warning them that their home is going to be destroyed, but not everyone have mobile phone in Gaza, and the message comes three minutes in advantage before the missile come down, not enough time to run three, four, five floors down.

Bil’in protesters oppose a ‘horrible, horrible wrong’ — Michael Moore

5 Broken Cameras Documentary Film

I have been activist for few years now.  I consider myself part of the Palestinian Solidarity Movement and like Bil’in resistance fighters, I m an advocate for non-violence movement. It is difficult to witness the struggle of Palestinians fighting their battle with a Palestinian Flag  and a camera.
Bil’in residents decided to wage a Non violent resistance war against the stronger army of the Middle East.

They started this war 7 years ago, protesting the Land grab for Settlements and the construction of the Apartheid Wall. They are not deterred by the gas, arrests, the bullets, the bullying and the death. Every Friday after prayer they gather by the Wall pacifically protesting the stealing of the Land.
I have been sharing photos and videos taken from the villages in West Bank, Gaza and West Jerusalem, images that could be rated R by the MPAA(Motion Picture Association of America) by its violent content. The violence is recorded in every one of the videos shoot by the residents and by the International Community of activists volunteering to be live witness of the Israel Occupation, internationals that take their own doses of beating, gas, bullets, arrests, and sometimes death.  5 Broken Cameras Exposes Israel True Colors

Michael Moore tweeted his followers to watch the film about Palestine that launched earlier in the departed year called 5 Broken Cameras. Twice. The chieftain of cinematic guerrilla activism sings it up as “one of the best films of the year” and “that rare documentary that has the power to move many. Pls watch!”

“Watch one of the best films of the year, “5 Broken Cameras,” the story of a Palestinian farmer who picks up a camera” MMFlint

Moore reveals a deeper connection to the film than suggested by those lonesome tweets. It took home the best picture award at the Traverse City Film Festival founded by Moore in his native Michigan. And he’s spoken at a number of screenings in the US. A video of one such pre-screening talk shows the extent of his directorial admiration for Emad Burnat’s film and the significant Israeli obstacles he has had to climb to showcase the debut Palestinian talent.

I was able to get Emad to Traverse City, Michigan. He’d gone to the airport in Tel Aviv and they wouldn’t let him leave. And so we had to get him to Amman to get on a plane there. But because I run a large international network of terrorists we were able to make this happen (laughs). I have been a huge advocate for this film for the better part of the last year. I was just telling Tom (the event’s co-organizer) downstairs that if I were the third Koch brother and had their resources … I would send a copy of this film to every home in America. And I believe that within 24 hours, if people would watch it, public opinion on this issue would change dramatically. This film is so powerful in its humanity, in its heart, its belief in non-violence as the way to succeed.

When Emad and his family were in Traverse City, Terry George, who made Hotel Rwanda, and I were introducing the film and then we did a Q&A afterwards and Terry said something I thought was really very true: every now and again a documentary comes along that after you see it you won’t discuss it as a documentary, you will discuss it as a work of art, a work of cinema, a movie. And we feel very strongly that this is one of those movies. This is one of the best movies I’ve seen this year, of all movies, not just documentaries. And their struggle goes on as you will see. This man is not a documentary film maker – he’s a farmer. And the film that you are about to watch is a film made by a farmer. With no training whatsoever. And I don’t even think that they have a theater in their town so I don’t even know what he’s seen.

So that makes it even more amazing as you watch this film, and you’re realizing that sometimes if you have that, whatever that is in you, whatever you have to say, you want your voice heard, and he found the medium to do that, quite accidentally: because his son, Jibreel, was born in 2005 and he picked up a used home video camera; and started you know wanting to film his son growing up but things started happening, they (Israel) started building the wall to bleed their town, so he started filming that, and the title of the film, as is probably self-evident, in terms of what happens to his cameras. One thing we did in Traverse City town is that when he left we sent him a brand new camera (laughs) so he can keep filming. A small price to pay for trying to right a horrible, horrible wrong.

So I’m really happy that he came here tonight to watch this; and I encourage you in terms of not only your appreciation of the art of this film, but also when you leave here, when you think about this tomorrow, to do what you can to help other people who don’t have five broken cameras, don’t have a voice. We (Americans) are the funders of what you are about to see.

“As Israeli settlers begin building homes and erecting a barrier wall in the West Bank village of Bil’in, a Palestinian farm worker documents the town’s resistance to the new settlement.  Over the course of several years, the townspeople clash with the Israeli Defense Force, and tensions mount as the wall remains and the building continues.” 5 Broken Cameras

Discover Bil’in

Bil’in is a Palestinian village that is struggling to exist. It is fighting to safeguard its land, its olive trees, its resources… its liberty.

By annexing close to 60% of Bil’in land for Israeli settlements and the construction of Israel’s separation wall, the state of Israel is strangling the village. Every day it destroys a bit more, creating an open air prison for Bil’in’s inhabitants.

Supported by Israeli and international activists, Bil’in residents peacefully demonstrate every Friday in front of the “work-site of shame”. And every Friday the Israeli army responds with violence, both physically and psychologically.

Bil’in residents have continued to withstand these injustices despite the frequent night raids of Israeli soldiers in the town followed by an increasing number of arrests of inhabitants and of activists. But now, the army has toughened the oppression by systematically arresting members of the Bil’in committee in charge of organizing the non-violent resistance actions. The aim of the arrests is to discourage Bil’in residents and reduce their resistance to the occupation.

By supporting Bil’in, you will help its inhabitants to continue their struggle and maintain hope in their fight for liberty. This site is dedicated to all people of good will – Palestinian, Israeli and the internationals who fight side by side against the injustices endured by the people of Bil’in.

Since I watched the trailer of 5 Broken Cameras I got inspired to shared as a great film without knowing, that this reality film was being nominated for the best documentary in our Oscar 2013.  5 Broken Cameras it is simple, real, painful as Palestinian reality is. If you have the chance “watch it”, go to Alive Mind Cinema and download it, Group Screen it, show it in your College Campus. Reality sting, but this is the only way to educate the public regarding Occupied Palestine.
Alive Mind Cinema shares a large chunk of the proceeds with the filmmakers, who are often the best spokespeople for their cause, as in the case of 5 Broken Cameras. We also support many organizations through partnerships, free screenings, education, etc.” Elizabeth Sheldon from Alive Mind Cinema.
Emat Burnat Palestinian Filmaker take you on a road of desperation, occupation, outrage and tears. In 5 years IDF (Israel Soldiers) destroyed 5 cameras, but he continue filming Palestinian Struggles.
Now for first time in history, Palestine Occupation has come out to the light of an audience silenced by Israel Propaganda Machine. 5 Broken Cameras in the hands of a Palestinian farmer bring you the painful Palestinian truth.

An extraordinary work of both cinematic and political activism, 5 BROKEN CAMERAS is a deeply personal, first-hand account of non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village threatened by encroaching Israeli settlements. Shot almost entirely by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, the footage was later given to Israeli co-director Guy Davidi to edit. Structured around the violent destruction of each one of Burnat’s cameras, the filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over five years of village turmoil. Burnat watches from behind the lens as olive trees are bulldozed, protests intensify, and lives are lost. “I feel like the camera protects me,” he says, “but it’s an illusion.”

Democracy Now interview  with Palestinian Filmmaker/Farmer/Activist Emat Burnat and Israel Filmmakers/Activist David Davidi, they walk us to the making of 5 broken cameras, which it is an everyday reality in Bil’in Palestine.

Rony Brauman – We do not parachute democracy

Interview with Rony Brauman : “We do not parachute democracy”

Source Jeune Afrique

On December 12, 2012 By Laurent de Saint Périer
À son domicile parisien, le 26 novembre. Israeli-Palestinian conflict, civil war, Syrian, Iranian nuclear Libyan revolution, intervention in northern Mali. Many cases in which the ultra destroyer of duty to intervene, Rony Brauman, displays positions that clash.

Humanitarian action Figure, Rony Brauman, founder of Doctors  Without Border France, where he is still active.
Born in Jerusalem in 1950, he claims Israeli citizenship, but he does not have the nationality. He dissociates the Jewish state dissociates into the two concepts, the second drawing  community distinctions. “I have not been back to Israel since the government requires me to enter with an Israeli passport, he said. With such a document, I can not go into the occupied territories. And I refuse to go to Israel if I can not go in the Territories. ”

Author of several essays, he distinguished himself by his warnings about the dangers of having interference. A position that has resulted in a real duel of intellectuals with the French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy on the Libyan issue in 2011.

Jeune Afrique: How do you react to granting Palestine the status of observer state at the UN?
Rony Brauman: This is good news. This will deal with the Israelis occupying their status in a country recognized and no longer “disputed territories”, as they like to say. This will enable the Palestinians to get face-to-face sterile in which they are trapped and their claims to the UN, where they have many supporters. Must obviously stop relying on Washington, clearly the Israeli side to play the referee. Recognition of Palestine, though incomplete, goes in this direction.

The cease-fire in Gaza between Hamas and Israel, it is the failure of the policy of peaceful negotiation? It is indeed a failure of policy of Fatah and the Palestinian Authority (PA), who renounced armed struggle and have received in exchange the continued expansion of settlements. Israeli policy has always been to marginalize progressive nationalists to seek face-to-face with the Islamists. By military, political, economic, Israelis have literally walked the AP to anchor the idea that they had no partner for peace. This is one of their major slogans: we want peace, but it takes two for it. Tel Aviv’s strategy is to declare what are its legitimate interlocutors. Considering one hand Hamas as a terrorist organization, another AP like a ghost without legitimacy, both the invalid and close the door on negotiations.

The West also considers Hamas a terrorist movement …

This is insane, even though I do not believe in a military solution to the conflict: the intifada was a disaster and many Palestinians recognize. However, an occupied people have the right to defend themselves. Self-defense is an indisputable notion, enshrined in all the texts present in all heads and which can not oppose. Use violence against Israelis is a political and strategic mistake – given the relationship of forces completely unbalanced in favor of Israel and its terrible human consequences – but consider Hamas as a terrorist because he defends is another . Especially since he has made it clear several times that he accepted the existence of Israel within the 1967 borders. Hamas must be one of the speakers Israelis.

What else does the peace camp in Israel?

There is always a peace camp consisted of people more moderate than those in power. They receive support measured. Meretz, which advocates the solution of two separate states, received only 2.5% of the seats in the legislative elections of 2009. There is also the extreme left those proposing the creation of a Palestinian-Israeli confederation: the solution of the single state, binational. Spontaneously, I am inclined to this form of confederation, which formalize a fact, of course with equal civil, political, social for the entire population. Unfortunately, time is the overall shrinkage identity. De facto, it is a binational state that is built, but under worse auspices with the establishment of an apartheid situation.

Can we expect progress to Obama’s second term?

Nothing has been done for the first … Hope we can still do it and there is a little forced, the Americans are the only ones to have an influence on the Israelis. Unfortunately, despite the barely concealed antipathy for Netanyahu Obama, support for the Jewish state has never been stronger and strengthens the Israeli Prime Minister’s intransigence. And international opinion against Israel is deflected so that the United States remains his only friends and protectors. It is very unwise for Israel to base its existence and security on a single ally, while many signs that even the United States the strength of this alliance is crumbling, including among American Jews more and more distant from the state and sectarian violence.

What is your position on the Syrian conflict?

My perspective covers two different aspects. I wish first of all to see that the majority of the opposition, having long played the popular mobilization and self-defense, abandoned this strategy to the choice of open warfare. Armed struggle selects the most violent, the most radical and promotes frightens a number of people who end up taking refuge in the wait. My sympathy goes to those who reject opponents in a single movement dictatorship and armed struggle, and which are, unfortunately, not considered by our media and politicians. Another important point is the requirement of immediate departure of Bashar al-Assad asked by Westerners. Establish a prerequisite that will never be accepted, it is sign for war. The key for me is that the current policy resume, with or without Bashar. That this tyrant is ultimately expelled from office, I could only be satisfied with all the people who hope for a democratic solution in Syria.

Israel’s position on the Iranian nuclear program is legitimate? Israel, which has triggered a spiral of nuclearization in the Middle East, also with the help of France is the latest country founded to defend such a position. Iran was attacked by the British suffered a coup orchestrated by the CIA in 1953, was attacked by a coalition of US-French interposed by Iraqis, but Iran went to war with anyone. I have no sympathy for the mullahs and all my support goes to the opponents of the green revolution, but even among these, many supports Iran’s right to develop nuclear and sanctuaries in its territory in order to guard against attack. As with Iraq in 2003, Iran has made the problem. And the solution is to attack. When one sees the world as a set of nails, we did not mind that other tools hammer and tongs, but in politics it should be the exception, and the opposite should be the

rule. We do not parachute democracy, we do not require bombs.

You have detonated in the media denouncing the intervention in Libya …

The Libyan adventure is itself part of a media manipulation characterized. Decided what Sarkozy and Obama was the air strafing protesters in Tripoli February 21, false information broadcast by Al-Jazeera on the basis of a simple telephone testimony. Yet there has been no demonstrations in Tripoli and even fewer aircraft strafing the crowd. No mainstream media has deigned to make any verification. The first page of the story of Bernard-Henri Lévy War begins without loving it: Then Cairo to support the Arab Spring is about to return to France when he sees on the screens of the airport aircraft to attack the crowd dive. He makes it clear that the importance of an event is the beginning. At right: this beginning-there has not occurred, it was a huge assembly propagandist, and set the tone for the future. Other manipulation: Benghazi, where the rebellion is part, was not within the scope of the threat of annihilation. Which saw columns of tanks that have been talked about so much? Person. The rebellious city was then completely build a position of strength. Subsequently, the National Transitional Council (CNT) could appeal to various mediators who proposed, such as Niger, Senegal and Turkey. But everything has been done for the option of war is the first resort. This war was decided in the early days of the uprising in Benghazi and was made its justifications (massacres, rape) and no one bothers to check.

What motivated this war?     

Sarkozy could only furious at having been tricked by Kaddafi: all contracts Rafale, EPR, big-French strategic partnership Libyan Africa were a deception. There is first of all feeling, quite justified, that had French President Nicolas Sarkozy have been fooled by Gaddafi: all contracts Rafale, EPR, big-French strategic partnership Libyan Africa were a deception. Sarkozy could only be furious. The second reason is its second session from the Arab Spring. I shared also not all accusations addressed to the then government of ignoring the arrival of the Arab Spring. I saw in these reproaches intelligence hindsight always easy, and cunning of imperial thinking. It is indeed not in France or the West to open the doors of the rule of law to the people. It is the Arabs that it was to be released, the role of democratic countries is to show their support for these movements. Third reason: to engage in a war probably very victorious for a cause that is almost indisputable – stop the massacres committed by the tyrant more isolated area – was to ensure the success of esteem and entry in history whose dream any head of state.

Are you also unfavorable to French intervention on the side of African troops in northern Mali?

Can quite bring aid to a sovereign who asks: is not evil in itself. But if that request help Malians is not provided, is that there is a situation coup. American rule, which is not the worst, in principle prohibits help an army coup. And beyond the coup, we must ask who is in charge in this country. Mali is currently living in a state of dissolution, and in the absence of a reliable political pole, any military enterprise is doomed to failure. All over Syria and Libya especially I felt isolated, as what I think about Mali joined what most experts say political, economic and military: it must give a little color and substance to the Malian government, which will not happen overnight. Resume Timbuktu, Gao and Kidal should not be complicated, but it is the famous day after that poses a problem if there is not a state, a set integrator, this day will be one of a disaster.
