No to Lévy

 

By Gilad Atzmon

The Independent reported today that French ultra Zionist, pseudo philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy “was banned from joining the former President Nicolas Sarkozy’s visit to Libya this week because he is Jewish."

Mr Lévy was the leading voice behind the French and British-led military intervention led to the collapse Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011. “He is credited with helping to persuade Mr Sarkozy to send French warplanes to protect rebels from Gaddafi’s forces.” However, the Libyans seem to be slightly suspicious of their ‘liberator.’ 

According to the French news website Rue89, Mr Lévy was banned from Mr Sarkozy’s visit to Libya earlier this week because the municipal authorities in Tripoli feared his Jewish background would make him a target for attacks by Islamist militia.  I guess that Lévy interventionist ‘philosophy’ should be realised as an exemplary case of the  of Zionists’ shift from promised Land to promised-planet.
