French intellectual Bernard-Henri Lévy, discussed his new book “The Genius of Judaism.” on the i24news.
Lévy, the famous philosopher who has been named on a list of the world’s 50 most influential Jews as well as “perhaps the most prominent intellectual in France today” will see his latest book published in France and the United States in February 2016.
First we had Nazism, then came communism, and now today we have Islamism which attacks all the values for which we stand
French author arrived to Israel to promote his latest book and will read excerpts of it this upcoming Wednesday December 2nd at the Tel Aviv Museum. He will also pay tribute to the victims of the deadly terror attacks claimed by the Islamic State in the French capital of Paris where 130 people lost their lives.
Lévy told in the interview that he decided to promote his book in Tel Aviv so shortly after the attacks because he was “revolted” by the way that the world treats similar attacks in Israel as if “it was basically normal.”
While the entire world expressed their outrage following the “terrible attacks” which struck Paris, they have not done so for terror attacks in Israel, and that, he said, “revolted me. This is my way to express this revolt.”
Lévy also spoke about IS, saying that Islamism is the “third fascism of our time. It obeys the same law. Now what do I mean by that? I mean that it is the third attack on civilization. First we had Nazism, then came communism, and now today we have Islamism which attacks all the values which we stand for.”
