Goethe en Baudet: twee bankliggers van ongelijke hoogte

Toen Johann Wolfgang von Goethe zo oud was als Thierry Baudet, publiceerde hij een magnifieke roman over de onmogelijke romantische liefde: "Die Leiden des jungen Werther". De Franse revolutie van 1789 was nog niet uitgebroken. Heel Europa verslond het en vele zelfmoorden waren het resultaat (zegt men). Thierry publiceerde "Voorwaardelijke Liefde". Een lofzang op mannelijke manipulatie (tot clitorectomie toe!) van de vrouw. Vrouwen zijn wezens die je op een knopje laten drukken en dan beheersen ze de man. Dat beweert hij. Ongeveer.

Samedi, le 5 février 2011. L'endroit improbable de Bohissaux, perdu dans les collines négligées de la fière Ville d'Andenne. ni namuroise, ni partie de Huy, et encore moins de Liège.S'il était simplement à nous? À nous, ses habitants? Bon, c'est une discussion différente.

Mon beau-frère Paul, sans que je ne le sache au début, accompagne ma fille Shana au chemin de son éclosion d'actrice.

Inter-prêtre, un roman de réflexion [FR]

Être vraiment en contact avec la société russe post-soviétique? Alors, il faut lire romans, polars et petites annonces. Commençons avec une grande dame de la littérature russe d'aujourd'hui: Ludmila Oulitskaïa.

Son dernier livre, paru en traduction française le 30 octobre 2008 chez Gallimard, c'est: Daniel Stein, interprète. Un juif catholique polonais, émigré tardivement à Haifa, Israel, se fait interprète du message divin, en fouillant le sol du pays, en réduisant les Message d'amour à l'essentiel - un essentiel qui s'avère être commun aux chrétiens catholiques et orthodoxes, aux juifs et aux musulmans. Et tout cela sur le fond d'un holocaust comme il a été vécu, en Pologne, en Biélorussie et en Ukraine.

Une foule de personnages, éparpillée dans tout le monde, participe à la documentation, par correspondance, rapportages, etc., d'une inventarisation des malentendus, parfois meurtriers, sur la façon dont on est censé de vivre selon les prescriptions de Dieu.

Oulitskaïa s'était déjà montrée maîtresse dans la description romancée des dilemmes de la société soviétique, de l'antisémitisme de Staline, du rôle de la femme dans une société où les hommes sont voués à l'alcoholisme, ainsi que de la prostitution internationale russe.

Ulfkotte and the Jews (2): Casher Meat Allowed until German Jews Become too Numerous? 25.5 [EN]

[...]Ridiculous, but also dangerous...
It is all ridiculous. We had already some good laughs with Ulfkotte, when he symbolized Muslim aggression with an image stolen from a violent American subculture-movie. And also, when he tried to set up a "gang-shop" with Judeo-Christian hate-shirts and bags for the thousands of young Ulfkotte-fans he imagined that were going to the Brussels September 11 anti-Eurabia Manifestation he tried to dominate over his (since repudiated) friends from SIOE and of the Belgian right wing Flemish chauvinist party Vlaams Belang.
But the context of the actions of Dr. Udo Ulfkotte is too serious, to keep on laughing. Ulfkotte combines his hate-mongering against Islam with juridical harassing of German bloggers, in an effort to silence them. So he is, in my opinion, a danger to freedom of expression on the Web.

Plays into the Hands of Radical Islamists - Intentionally?
And his conscious- ,or unconscious-, caricaturisation of the "serious" populists and white supremacists, makes him a vector of the following:

Grundsätzlich befürchtet Dantschke*), dass die Rhetorik solcher Blogs den Islamisten letztlich zuarbeite und sie stärke. Es werde darin eine homogene muslimische Gemeinschaft gezeichnet und diese durch zahlreiche Beispiele pauschal kriminalisiert. Dies ermögliche es islamistischen Organisationen wiederum, die These des "Kampfes der Kulturen" zu propagieren, nach welcher der Islam dem Westen nach dem Kalten Krieg als neues Feindbild In Sachen westliche "Welteroberung" diene. Auch bestärke es Islamisten in ihrer Erklärung, sie seien die "Verteidiger der Interessen der Muslime".
Translation:
Basically, Dantschke*) fears, that the rhetorics of this kind of blogs helps and invigorates the Islamists in the end. An image of a homogeneous Muslim community is suggested and that community is being undistinctively criminalized by way of numerous examples. Islamist organizations, then, are being facilitated in their propaganda of the thesis of the "Clash Of Civilizations", that implies that the Islam serves the West as a new "Empire Of Evil" after the Cold War within the context of a Western world domination. It reinforces also the Islamist claim, that they are the sole "defenders of Muslims' interests".
*) Ms. Dantschke is a Berlin researcher, interviewed by the author of the haGalil article. She is also co-author of a publication sponsored by the German FBI (2003/2006), in which she calls Ulfkotte a "racist". See our notes about it in French and in German)

However, shouldn't we eliminate the possibility, that Ulfkotte's hate-mongering is UNconscious?
In the Mossad-Sarkozy hoax we published last week here, he implies, that the Mossad and Sarkozy aimed at exactly the above effect! Ulfkotte cannot deny that he believes in the effectiveness of hate-mongering by targeted (dis-)information. Is it imaginable, that he doesn't realize what he is doing, when he does so himself?

Forcing themselves on Israel and on Jews
It is a common phenomenon, that hate-mongerers like Ulfkotte, try to force themselves on Israel (and on the Jews) as their greatest allies in a world of anti-Semites and Arabophiles. Filip Dewinter, leader of the Vlaams Belang, went in 2004 to Israel and got some Antwerp Jews to join his racist movement. PI has some Israelian correspondents and associates with the Kagane heritage in Brooklyn. American Christian Hate-Islam meetings against the Islamic headscarf, often feature an ex-American Jewish lady, now a convinced colonist on Palestinian soil, who wears a gigantic wig, as prescribed by Jewish Orthodox law for married women (like the Muslim headscarf)...

In the above example of ritual/non-ritual slaughtering, we have seen, how thin and how opportunist the line is, between tolerating, even "admiring", cultural and religious usages, and discriminatory agaitation against them. For Ulfkotte, it is a question of numbers, he says. The moment, he judges, that a "demographical unbalance" comes into being, anything should be allowed in agitation against the intruders.
But, for the time being, he tries to mislead the Jews with "scurrilous" reasonings.

How "Functional Principles" are Born...
Ajaan Hirsi Ali, who, in contrast to Ulfkotte, has developed a theory about the fundamental evilness of Muslims, all Muslims, and particularly the "moderate" people among them, made a proposal, in 2003, in Dutch Parliament, to forbid "genital mutilation" of women, which seems all right to me, but at the same time, of the Islamic prescription about the male circumcision. She had, otherwise than Ulfkotte, no excuse by some unrelated (and pretended) principle, and was embarrassed by hostile Jewish comments against that plan. When she realized, that in the USA, circumcision is very common, also among non-Jews, she was quick to abandon her principles in so far as they concerned male circumcision...

...and how OLD the hate- and fear-mongering against ritual slaughter is!
An interesting precursor of the Ulfkottean agitation against ritual slaughtering, occurred in the beginning of the twentieth century in the Aargau Canton of North-East Switzerland. Since late Roman times, the region has a large Jewish minority population.
Charles Lewinsky describes in a great family chronicle ("Melnitz", 1865-1945), how the "Bürgerbewegungen" of that epoch, prefiguring Pax Europa and its ideologue, masked themselves as animal-protectors against the Jews and hired radical Jewish apostates to obtain at the referendum a majority against ritual slaughtering. They were successful. The interdiction of ritual slaughtering still exists in Aargau. Jewish butchers have to import casher meat from Germany and neighboring France.
If Pax Europa and its local affiliate "Zukunft.CH" are still looking for ways to prove their stand against antisemitism, why not organize a picket line in Zürich in favor of the restitution of the right to ritual slaughter in Aargau?
