    ... one has the feeling they live like privilege guests on some holiday resort. Philosopher unknown to philosophers, BHL carpet bombs us with 'facts,' 'obviously,' 'one does, and 'one doesn't,' in his trademark mind-numbing mix of everything and everyone and every period in time. I would argue that, this time, his subterfuges do little to hide the impossibility in France today to criticize Israel without being associated to Hamas or to Hitler, courtesy of hitmen in sheep's clothings. Quite the contrary; for a sober look onto his own words should prompt him to realize that he has achieved just the opposite of what he purported to do: his words confirm that the BDS campaign is gathering pace and that those justifying the cleansing of Palestinians grow anxious. For they begin to realize that they're running against human progress and history, and that there is nothing they can do about it.
