Bernard-Henri Levy Lies About Vladimir Putin and the Rest of Us

"This is the lie that we are going to tell everyone. I am Petro Poroshenko, and you are Bernard Levy. See the connection? Our brothers are known to propagate lies and fabrications."
“This is the lie that we are going to tell everyone. Can you see it on the screen? It’s a secret. Remember, our brethren have taken that road before. Let us make them proud. Let us follow our tradition: lies, lies, and more lies.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis


Whenever Bernard-Henri Levy writes an article about geopolitical policy and the Middle East, you can predict with accuracy that he is going to lie. In fact, I cannot remember the last time this man speaks the truth about metaphysical things. It is really a shame that this man calls himself a philosopher. Gordon Duff was right in calling Levy a “French Mossadist philosopher.”

In his recent piece in the Huffington Post, Levy begins with the inexorable truth—that is, the truth according to Bernard-Henri Levy:

“Across Europe, apologists for Russia and Russian policy have coalesced into what amounts to a fifth column. The emergence in Western capitals of what might be called the “Party of Putin” is an exceptionally dangerous development, precisely because those who comprise it are not only the usual far-left and far-right suspects.

“They are, for starters, those who, regardless of party, have had nothing critical to say about the full state reception that Russian President Vladimir Putin just staged at the Kremlin for that multi-recidivist enemy of the West, and more importantly, butcher of his own people, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“They are those whose craven relief that a “strongman” has appeared to impose order (his own) on the Syrian mess prevents them from seeing that the primary effect of Russia’s massive, indiscriminate bombardments has been to accelerate the flow of refugees toward Europe.”[1]

Can this man really say something that is philosophically sound and logically coherent? Did this man really major in philosophy? If the Jerusalem Post named Levy as one of the “world’s 50 most influential Jews,”[2] then the Jewish intellectual world is in a bad shape.

If “Jews ought to provide a unique moral voice in the world,”[3] as Levy believes, is it all right to deliberately lie about Russia, Putin, Assad, and Syria? Does this man have any common sense at all? Listen to Levy again:

“And they are the great many who simply ignore what motivates Putin’s armed diplomacy (and not just in Syria): the desire to exact revenge on those who, in his eyes, were responsible for the Soviet Union’s downfall. Putin famously declared that the Soviet collapse was the ‘biggest geopolitical catastrophe of the twentieth century,’ and he has never stopped blaming it on the United States, the Catholic Church (and its Polish pope), and Europe.”[4]

So, Putin is in Syria because he wants to extract revenge on those who were responsible for the Soviet Union’s downfall! How stupid can it be? Levy shouldn’t insult even children with that kind of nonsense, and once again it is really intellectually embarrassing that this man identifies himself as a philosopher. How can he read people like Emmanuel Kant and come up with this mumbo jumbo?

Levy almost certainly prefers the Talmud over the Western philosophical tradition. He did not hesitate to write,

“The Talmud is democracy in practice.”[5]

Is this former “Marxist-Leninist-Maoist”[6] again acting as a philosopher or as an ideologue who has no interest in the truth? If the Talmud is democracy in practice, does that include accusing Christ of practicing black magic, and claiming that he will spend eternity in Hell, “sitting forever in boiling excrement”?[7]

How about sex in the Talmud?

A woman could molest a young boy without questions of morality even being raised: ‘…the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act.’ The Talmud also says, ‘A male aged nine years and a day who cohabits with his deceased brother’s wife acquires her (as wife).’ Clearly, the Talmud teaches that a woman is permitted to marry and have sex with a nine year old boy.”[8]
