Islam, Islamism and the blind
We must now get used to living under the constant threat of Islamist attacks deemed "unpredictable", this is the admission of helplessness that deliver the leaders of the Western world in the face of recent attacks that have plunged Britain, Belgium, France, Germany, Australia, Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan ... Helplessness, misunderstanding and blindness to the profile of terrorist assassins who, for the most part, are classified in the box of "unbalanced" acting without any direct link to the organized terrorism of Daesh or Al-Kaida. It is seriously ignoring that there is no hermetic border between "moderate" Islam and violent Islamism, just as there is no hermetic border between sponsored Islamist terrorism and terrorism. spontaneous Islamist. This ignorance, this forgetfulness shows a severe deficiency in the analysis of cultures on the part of politicians who, obeying the only credo of submission to the free market and competitive labor, advocate a multicultural model without safeguards. From this point of view, our societies are unconscious of themselves. It is a story that goes back to the French Revolution when it adopts in the same breath human rights, the prohibition of corporations and the supremacy of the free labor market reduced to a competitive commodity regardless of culture. postulants, even if it were deadly. The same error will be repeated by Marx who, while rebelling against the labor market system, will reduce the culture, Christian and more particularly Jewish to a position and a class ideology. Nowadays, this same unconsciousness, right or left, will forget that so-called "economic" migrants are also cultural migrants. The sad example of an event in 2015 is here to remind us: on a boat loaded with one hundred and twelve migrants and threatening to sink, fifteen Muslims throw twelve Christians surprised praying, to the sea.
The assassination of Sarah Halimi, violated and defenseless despite her screams and the police presence in her building and the media silence that followed, is here to remind us of the blindness that is still present in the face of this spontaneous Islamism whose actors are described as " unbalanced ". Still happy when they are not excused as victims of "Islamophobia" or economic misery.
It is high time to ask the question of Islam in an objective way, time to reconquer "the lost territories of the Republic" by dismantling the countercultures that developed there. One can not forget from this point of view that before becoming compatible with the Republic, the inquisitorial Church had to undergo the revolutionary constraint and the anticlerical struggle, to admit the Reformation then, after the Second World War, to do a work on it. even to stand out from an anti-Judaism that could have fueled exterminating anti-Semitism.
Islam is also based on a cleaving dogma: Muhammad is the Prophet and not believing rejects on the side of the disbelievers. Then follows the obligation to conquer the universe. But the underlying parental and sexual schema under the model of the Prophet who remained without analysis implies an oppression of women and a death drive directed against Jews, apostates and Christians. A drive that finds its enjoyment in the death of the disbelievers. To submit the will of spirituality and morality displayed in Islam like other religions but contradicted by violence, to a setting on the couch is a necessity. Introducing the criticism of this conquering violence in places of education is a duty.
Especially since the cultural matrices that shape individuals outside of the texts do not only shape a ritual Islam that can become radicalized, they also shape a cultural Islam that is also radicalized. The killers of most of the various recent attacks were by no means expert in Koranic commentary. This cultural Islamism operates on French soil, it is in the air that breathe our young people, it is in the hatred of French culture. It spreads from an early age more or less in what is transmitted by the cultural unconscious.
The use of secularism as a defensive barrier against Islamism is no longer enough. Today it is appropriate to assume this clash of cultures by appealing to historical criticism and psychoanalysis to dismantle what in Islam pushes for violence. The globalization of the labor market and of the wage-earners with the freedom of movement of women which it supposes means for Islam the loss of its cultural hegemony, hence its violent reaction, a reaction which is only due to its beginning. In 1948, the Palestinian movement led by Mufti Husseini, who spent two years in Berlin near his friend Hitler, was rooted in the rejection of the Jewish fact and of a Jewish state without even thinking of making his own state. the part that was devolved upon him, which triggered the expulsion and exile of the Jews of the Arab-Muslim countries, a repressed exile. It was the birth of Islamism. Today, it attacks Christians, Copts, the Western world, moderate Muslims who are also the victims. It is now time to lead this clash of cultures without being content with military or police measures that concern only Islamism ordered and that abandon the spontaneous Islamism that takes place in the heart of cities.
