Occident et Islam
Author: Youssef Hindi
Qui veut comprendre la situation du monde actuel doit remonter aux sources originelles des courants d’idées sous-jacents aux grands mouvements historiques. Idées qui seront le moteur de l’action pour ces minorités proactives qui font et défont l’histoire. Dans cet ouvrage, Youssef Hindi nous révèle les origines mystiques, jusqu’ici peu documentées, du sionisme et de la doctrine programmatique du choc des civilisations. Idéologies qui conduisent en priorité les peuples d’Orient et d’Occident, et in fine l’Humanité dans son ensemble, sur des voies essentiellement périlleuses. En remontant au XIIIe siècle, nous découvrons comment est né le projet du «rapatriement» du peuple juif en Terre sainte malgré l’interdiction énoncée par la Torah et le Talmud. Nous voyons ici de quelle manière ce rêve messianique a pris corps pour s’accomplir à partir de la fin du XIXe siècle dans une idéologie athéiste, le sionisme politique.
The Israel Lobby," by John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen M. Walt of Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, was one of the most controversial articles in recent memory. Originally published in the London Review of Books in March 2006, it provoked both howls of outrage and cheers of gratitude for challenging what had been a taboo issue in America: the impact of the Israel lobby on U.S. foreign policy. Now in a work of major importance, Mearsheimer and Walt deepen and expand their argument and confront recent developments in Lebanon and Iran. They describe the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the United States provides to Israel and argues that this support cannot be fully explained on either strategic or moral grounds. This exceptional relationship is due largely to the political influence of a loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively work to shape U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. Mearsheimer and Walt provocatively contend that the lobby has a far-reaching impact on America's posture throughout the Middle East—in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, and toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—and the policies it has encouraged are in neither America's national interest nor Israel's long-term interest. The lobby's influence also affects America's relationship with important allies and increases dangers that all states face from global jihadist terror. Writing in The New York Review of Books, Michael Massing declared, "Not since Foreign Affairs magazine published Samuel Huntington's ‘The Clash of Civilizations?' in 1993 has an academic essay detonated with such force." The publication of The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy is certain to widen the debate and to be one of the most talked-about books in foreign policy.
Le nouveau livre de Youssef Hindi se situe dans le prolongement de son précédent ouvrage à succès Occident et Islam, Tome I : Sources et genèse messianiques du sionisme. De l'Europe médiévale au Choc des civilisations (Sigest, 2015), et ouvre la voie au Tome II. Bien que les travaux présentés dans son premier ouvrage dont les thèses n'ont à ce jour souffert d'aucune réfutation ont désormais fait la lumière sur les origines et les finalités du sionisme et de la stratégie du Choc des civilisations, il n'en demeure pas moins qu'un certain nombre de questionnements relatifs à l'Islam en tant que religion, civilisation et empires successifs, restent en suspend. D'autant plus que la propagande occidentaliste propose le plus souvent une vision déformée et simpliste, brouillant très largement la perception qu'ont les populations de culture chrétienne, de l'une des plus importantes religions de l'Humanité dans sa complexe réalité, et cela pour des raisons que l'auteur avait très largement exposées dans Occident et Islam, Tome I. Il s'agira ici non pas de se lancer dans une déconstruction systématique des innombrables mythes (souvent fantaisistes) qui ont été forgés dans des contextes politiques, géopolitiques et historiques spécifiques, mais de vérifier ou d'infirmer les plus importantes accusations portées à l'encontre de l'Islam. Accusations sur lesquelles s'appuie d'ailleurs essentiellement la stratégie du Choc des civilisations.
The Invention of God
Author: Thomas Römer
Publisher: Harvard University Press
Who invented God? When, why, and where? Thomas Römer seeks to answer these enigmatic questions about the deity of the great monotheisms—Yhwh, God, or Allah—by tracing Israelite beliefs and their context from the Bronze Age to the end of the Old Testament period in the third century BCE, in a masterpiece of detective work and exposition.

"... an original interpretation of the wide-ranging impact of the military on Israeli society... one of the most insightful works on Israeli society in general." —Gershon Shafir From the early days of the Yishuv, militarism and the military have become a way of life for Israelis. Focusing on the period between 1936 and 1956, Uri Ben-Eliezer traces the ways in which military force acquired legitimacy in civilian society and how the use of organized violence became an acceptable solution to conflicts, especially the Arab-Israeli conflict.
"Anyone interested in understanding the contemporary Middle East should read this book." Tony Judt --
In 'Israel's History and the History of Israel' one of the world's foremost experts on antiquity addresses the birth of Israel and its historic reality. Many stories have been told of the founding of ancient Israel, all rely on the biblical story in its narrative scheme, despite its historic unreliability. Drawing on the literary and archaeological record, this book completely rewrites the history of Israel. The study traces the textual material to the times of its creation, reconstructs the evolution of political and religious ideologies, and firmly inserts the history of Israel into its ancient-oriental context.
What view of man did the French Revolutionaries hold? Anyone who purports to be interested in the "Rights of Man" could be expected to see this question as crucial and yet, surprisingly, it is rarely raised. Through his work as a legal historian, Xavier Martin came to realize that there is no unified view of man and that, alongside the "official" revolutionary discourse, very divergent views can be traced in a variety of sources from the Enlightenment to the Napoleonic Code. Michelet's phrases, "Know men in order to act upon them" sums up the problem that Martin's study constantly seeks to elucidate and illustrate: it reveals the prevailing tendency to see men as passive, giving legislators and medical people alike free rein to manipulate them at will. His analysis impels the reader to revaluate the Enlightenment concept of humanism. By drawing on a variety of sources, the author shows how the anthropology of Enlightenment and revolutionary France often conflicts with concurrent discourses.
Jesus, Jihad and Peace
Author: Michael Youssef
Publisher: Worthy Publishing
Is there any hope for PEACE in the world? Or is TERROR our DESTINY? In our post-9/11 world, Westerners in general—and Christians in particular—remain targets of Islamic terrorism. From the White House to 10 Downing Street, radical groups like the Muslim Brotherhood are appeased and allowed to operate freely in the West. IN A WORLD THAT CRIES OUT FOR PEACE, WHICH WILL PREVAIL—JESUS OR JIHAD? Bible-believing Christians wonder: What does Islamic extremism mean in terms of Bible prophecy? Do today's turbulent events have prophetic significance? In Jesus, Jihad and Peace, Dr. Michael Youssef provides answers that are concise and biblically accurate, explaining how trends within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam fit into prophetic history. You will be filled with hope as you see God displaying His character and purpose through current global events.

Red Letter Revolution
Author: Shane Claiborne, Tony Campolo
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
For all the Christians facing conflict between JesusÆ words and their own lives, for all the non-Christians who feel they rarely see JesusÆ commands reflected in the choices of his followers, Red Letter Revolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centered on the words of Jesus, the BibleÆs ôred letters.ö Framed as a captivating dialogue between Shane Claiborne, a progressive young evangelical, and Tony Campolo, a seasoned pastor and professor of sociology, Red Letter Revolution is a life-altering manifesto for skeptics and Christians alike. It is a call to a lifestyle that considers first and foremost JesusÆ explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love. Shane and Tony candidly bring the words of Jesus to bear on contemporary issues of violence, community, Islam, hell, sexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other critical topics for people of faith and conscience today. The resulting conversations reveal the striking truth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequently reach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity. If the Jesus who speaks to you through the Gospels is at odds with the Christian culture you know, if you have ever wanted to stand up and say, ôI love Jesus, but thatÆs not me,ö Red Letter Revolution will prove that you are not aloneùyou may have been a Red Letter Christian all along. Endorsements: ôThis book, by a young and an elderly Christian, will help you decide how we Christians could change the world if we took the æred letterÆ words of Jesus literally and seriously.ö ùPresident Jimmy Carter ôIn Red Letter Revolution the uncompromised truth of Jesus' teachings are given voice by two modern-day Christian leaders who do more than preach this Good News. They walk the talk and lead the way.ö ùArchbishop Desmond Tutu ôI started reading this book and couldn't stop. . . . Thank you, Tony and Shane. Thank you for this book. May the movement spread around the world.ö ùAbuna Elias Chacour,?Melkite Catholic Archbishop of Galilee ôRed Letter Revolution is an adrenaline-producing conversation with prophetic bite.ö ùEugene H. Peterson, author of The Message Bible ôI cannot over-emphasize or exaggerate the richness of this book.ö ùPhyllis Tickle, author of Emergence Christianity ôIn this courageous and well crafted book, we have a return to the core message of the Gospel from two Christians who first tried to live it themselvesùand only then spoke." ùFr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation ôShane Claiborne and Tony Campolo are two of the most significant prophetic voices in the Christian world.ö ùRabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine (tikkun.org) ôThis is a must-read book for anyone who is seeking to take JesusÆ call on their lives seriously.ö ùJim Wallis, founder and editor of Sojourners magazine ôIf you ever wished you could eavesdrop on a conversation with two of the world's most interesting and inspiring Christians, just turn to page one.ö ùBrian D.
