Ah, the perpetual regime change proponent, Bernard-Henri Levy. He’s busy promoting his latest piece of “propaganda as art”, a documentary about the Kurds in Iraq supposedly fighting “ISIS”. His film was just “discovered” and added to the Cannes Film Festival (for purely propaganda purposes as next year will certainly be too late for his film to have any “soft power” effect)
Let’s get to know Bernard-Henri Levy a little better.
“On 24 June 2009, Lévy posted a video on Dailymotion in support of the Iranian protesters who were being repressed after the contested elections.” Hillary’s attempt at the Iranian Green Revolution
“In Left in Dark Times, he argued that the Darfur genocide was not a palatable issue for modern leftists because it did not provide a platform for the anti-American views..”
“In March 2011, he engaged in talks with Libyan rebels in Benghazi, and publicly promoted the international acknowledgement of the recently formed National Transitional Council. Later that month, worried about the 2011 Libyan civil war, he prompted and then supported Nicolas Sarkozy’s seeking to persuade Washington, and ultimately the United Nations, to intervene in Libya..”
“In May 2011, Lévy argued for military intervention in Syria against Bashar al-Assad ..” from After Gaddafi, Assad
“Levy was in Kiev Ukraine during the Maidan (color) Revolution (regime change) in February 2014, actively promoting that”
Not only a regime change proponent, but also a lover of the IDF and renowned by Israel as one of the 50 most influential Jews in the world:
“At the opening of the “Democracy and its Challenges” conference in Tel Aviv (May 2010) Lévy gave a very high estimation of the Israel Defense Forces, saying “I have never seen such a democratic army, which asks itself so many moral questions. There is something unusually vital about Israeli democracy.”
And now he’s a big proponent of the Kurds of Greater Kurdistan.
“The Cannes festival has added French philosopher Bernard Henri Levy’s “Peshmerga” to Official Selection, as a special screening.
“This film, which we have just discovered, offers a close-up look at the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters. With just a small team in tow, the director traveled 1,000 km along the Iraqi frontier, from South to North, filming war situations, landscapes and the faces of men and women rarely seen in the wider world,” Cannes said in a statement.” Variety
Wow. This guy never misses a regime change trick, does he? And surprise, surprise, he’s in bed with the Kurds promoting the Greater Kurdistan movement with some propaganda designed to make them into our latest “freedom fighters”
Thanks for the heads-up Penny. Yep, his inclusion in the propaganda campaign speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
