Al Jazeera posted an excerpt from The Impostor: BHL in Wonderland, highlighting that when Bernard-Henri Lévy involves himself in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is as a propagandist for the Jewish state.
A review of the major causes Bernard-Henri Lévy has embraced over the past 30 years reveals that behind an apparently dissident discourse, he has consistently taken the side of established authorities. When he involves himself in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is as a propagandist for the Jewish State, as reveals this excerpt.
Berfois have published an excerpt from the latest in the Counterblasts series, The Imposter: BHL in Wonderland by Jade Lindgaard and Xavier de la Porte, a stinging takedown of Bernard-Henri Lévy, France's "rock-star philosopher."
Watch BHL debate Slavoj Žižek in 2008. They go head to head on the subject of 'Violence and the Left in Dark Times' at the New York Public Library.
