“In all its bloody triumphs over the self-sacrificing champions of a new and better society, that nefarious civilization, based upon the enslavement of labor, drowns the moans of its victims in a hue-and-cry of calumny, reverberated by a world-wide echo. The serene working men’s Paris of the Commune is suddenly changed into a pandemonium by the bloodhounds of “order.”
Our position and our polemics against the official-institutional anti-Islamism of the French state have been known since the times of the ghetto uprisings in 2005. It is also well known that the short-long French imperialism is among those that insists on its typical national-state reproduction through procedures of exclusion of the subjects which it projects as “others”.
The fact that Charlie Hebdo magazine is a loyal instrument of the French state, of its services, and its planning, is now undeniable. The fact that this whole situation is being exploited by the great imperialists to serve the white Christian nationals, from the freezer, after it is reheated, the tale of the “clash of civilizations”, is just a point that reveals how much they have run out of imagination.
That Mr Macron, after appearing in Beirut a few months ago, aspiring to be anointed “emperor of the sun”, but all he had to do -and fairly so- was to legalize institutionally the Hezbollah, as well the defeats of the French troops in sub-Saharan Africa only indicate the collapse of his European strategy.
The silence of the official French left, since once again, failed to connect with the revolting movements of the years 2016-2018, something that affected the yellow petty-bourgeoisie march, while French thinkers are still worried about the necessity of violence, it simply indicates its rather irreversible institutionalization. Surely, some technologies of suppressing and construction of the interior enemy have remained as a dowry in the CRS and in the military operations in the urban fabric of the French metropolises.
On the other hand, the juristic left through Orientalism will continue to falsificate
Muslim workers as the exotic monster that is called to domesticate.
No news from Paris at this time.
Or will the war in Syria necessarily proceeds through Paris?
