  • Une majorité d’idées pour Israël - Le travestissement de l’histoire

    1992, par Samir Kassir, Farouk Mardam-Bey
    Cet extrait se situe dans le contexte de la guerre de Suez d’octobre 1956 suite suite
  • World silent as fascists join Israel government

    October 2006, by Ali Abunimah
    In a frightening but long expected move, Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert has brought the Yisrael Beitenu party into his coalition government. The party’s leader, Avigdor Lieberman, is to be vice prime minister and, as "Minister for Strategic Threats," a key member of Israel’s "security cabinet" in charge of the Iran portfolio. Yisrael Beitenu is a dangerous extremist party with fascist tendencies that has openly advocated the "transfer" of Palestinians, including the transfer of Arab (...) continue continue
  • Israel’s 2006 war on Lebanon - Reflections on the international law of force

    2006, by Karim Makdisi
    According to the UN, on the morning of 12 July 2006, a Hizbullah unit crossed the Blue Line created by the 1949 Armistice between Israel and Lebanon and attacked an Israeli army patrol near the border, capturing two Israeli soldiers and killing three others. The captured soldiers were brought back into Lebanon, and a heavy exchange of fire ensued between Hizbullah and Israel across the entire length of the Blue Line. Israel’s armed forces targeted, in these initial exchanges, not just (...) continue continue
  • How Hezbollah defeated Israel

    October 2006, by Alastair Crooke, Mark Perry
    Winning the intelligence war Introduction Writing five years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, US military expert Anthony Cordesman published an account of the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict. "Preliminary Lessons of the Israeli-Hezbollah War" created enormous interest in the Pentagon, where it was studied by planners for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and passed hand-to-hand among military experts in Washington. Cordesman made no secret of his modest conclusions, rightly recognizing that (...) continue continue
  • The country that wouldn’t grow up

    October 2006, by Tony Judt
    By the age of 58 a country - like a man - should have achieved a certain maturity. After nearly six decades of existence we know, for good and for bad, who we are, what we have done and how we appear to others, warts and all. We acknowledge, however reluctantly and privately, our mistakes and our shortcomings. And though we still harbor the occasional illusion about ourselves and our prospects, we are wise enough to recognize that these are indeed for the most part just that: illusions. In (...) continue continue
  • Hizb Allah, Party of God

    October 2006, by Nir Rosen
    In the wake of Israel’s 33-day war with Hizballah, the 24-year-old Islamic movement has become the most popular political party in the Middle East. Here’s why that shouldn’t worry us. Over 1 million Lebanese gathered in a vast square in a southern Beirut suburb on Sept. 22 to celebrate their country’s largely successful campaign against Israel. Seyid Hassan Nasrallah, secretary-general of Hizballah, risked his life by appearing in public after Israeli leaders had sworn to kill him, and spoke (...) continue continue
  • La lutte pour la démocratie en Syrie et l’indépendance libanaise

    2002, par Samir Kassir
    Le poids de la géopolitique Les explications les plus répandues de la politique syrienne au Liban ressortissent, non sans raison, à l’analyse géopolitique. Cela paraît encore plus évident s’agissant du geste fondateur de cette politique, à savoir l ’entrée officielle de l’armée syrienne sur le territoire libanais en juin 1976. Même s’il faut signaler, pour sa valeur euristique, l’explication ’’domestique’’ proposée par Fred Lawson , le facteur géopolitique fut sans conteste déterminant dans la décision de (...) suite suite
  • Bush’s Useful Idiots

    September 2006, by Tony Judt
    Why have American liberals acquiesced in President Bush’s catastrophic foreign policy? Why have they so little to say about Iraq, about Lebanon, or about reports of a planned attack on Iran? Why has the administration’s sustained attack on civil liberties and international law aroused so little opposition or anger from those who used to care most about these things? Why, in short, has the liberal intelligentsia of the United States in recent years kept its head safely below the parapet? It (...) continue continue
