Iran : le fanatique religieux et la bombe

Alors que se profilent à l'horizon de nouvelles négociations sur le programme nucléaire iranien, il est de toute première importance de savoir qui est le nouveau président iranien, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Commençons par le jour où le monde a eu pour la première fois un aperçu de sa personnalité et de son programme extrémiste.

C'était en septembre dernier à New-York, quand il a pris la parole dans l'enceinte des Nations unies. Soudain, il s'est senti entouré d'une lumière divine. Il a narré son expérience lors d'une rencontre avec un ayatollah de renom à Téhéran, qui a été enregistrée en vidéo. Ses paroles et des extraits de la vidéo ont été affichés par le site internet baztab.com, animé par des partisans du régime, favorables à une ligne dure.

Selon la transcription, Ahmadinejad raconte que c'est un membre de son entourage qui le premier lui a parlé de cette lumière : “ Quand vous avez prononcé "Au nom de Dieu…", j'ai vu apparaître une lumière qui vous a baigné et protégé jusqu'à la fin [du discours] ”. Ahmadinejad a confirmé qu'il a perçu ce phénomène. "J'ai ressenti moi-même que soudain l'atmosphère avait changé et que pendant 27 ou 28 minutes, les dirigeants qui étaient là ne pouvaient me quitter du regard… Leurs yeux et leurs oreilles étaient grands ouverts au message de la République islamique", dit-il à l'ayatollah Javadi-Amoli.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
