‘Annoying Person of 2015’ Jewish Award

I enjoyed reading Rich Salutin’s Opinion Post at The Toronto Star (January 1, 2016), entitled, Annoyance of the Year: Bernard Henry-Levy, which he began by saying: As I pondered my choice for the Annoying Person of the Year, Bernard Henry-Levy kept popping into mind.

I enjoyed it because it provides a window to further understand the evilness of a French Jewish philosopher, and criticism of that evil person by a Canadian Jewish journalist.

Bernard Henry-Levy has the record of being involved in almost every conflict in Muslim world, such as, Pakistan, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Algeria, Iraq, Bosnia, Sudan, Palestine, Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, etc. to name a few. He also never missed a chance to attend anti-Muslim demonstrations in Paris sponsored by French Jewish Lobby and anti-Muslim White racists to pin Mossad false flag operations on Muslims (here, here).

Bernard Henry-Levy convened the first international conference on Syria in Paris on July 4, 2011 which was attended by several Israeli lawmakers and French Jewish ex-FM Bernard Kouchner (here).

In November 2011, Bernard-Henri Levy, in a speech at the first conference of the French Jewish Lobby CRIF said that Qaddafi had to be removed because he became a threat to Israel.

What I have done all these months, I did as a Jew. And like all the Jews of the world, I was worried. Despite legitimate anxiety is an uprising to be welcomed with favor, we were dealing with one of the worst enemy of Israel, said Levy.

Rick Salutin, 73, is a Canadian Jewish journalist, playwright, novelist and critic of Canadian foreign policy. A few years ago, when then prime minister Stephen Harper travelled to Israel to kiss Netanyahu’s dirty butts, Salutin called Canada: Province of Israel.

Henry-Levy’s first flamed into public prominence in the 1970s as one of France’s New Philosophers. They announced – like adding a new franchise to the league — that they weren’t just abandoning but counterattacking their former Marxism and joining the other side: supporting counter-revolution in Nicaragua, the invasion of Iraq, anti-Islamism. BHL since then has continued philosophizing — it engenders celebrity there, like hockey here – and branched out (he has family money) into film, journalism, theatre, Salutin said.

But he’s been uniquely active in a special category: the meddler. He’d probably prefer “public intellectual” but his real interest has been cultivating national leaders and needling them, he claims, into virtuous action. That’s where the pop-ups proliferate: in Bosnia, Afghanistan, Gaza, Libya. Followed by books, films etc., on how he made the magic happen, Salutin said.

While meddling in Bosnia’s war in the 1990s, he had France’s president send a jet to fly him to his wedding in Provence. “Mitterrand owed me,” he said. “I did so much for the French government.” (He sounded Trumpian, avant la lettre.) He was especially tight with Nicolas Sarkozy, and took credit for 2011’s overthrow of Qaddafi in Libya by pointing Sarkozy to a rebel leader during what the Guardian called a “phone call to arms.” He has everyone’s cell, of course. After screening his film about that prologue to Libya’s current chaos, he was asked why he put himself at its very centre. He said it’s like Michael Moore’s place in his films. Well, not exactly. Moore mocks himself to make serious points. BHL takes himself super seriously and ends up being awfully funny, Salutin added.
