On the Zionist who wants to "liberate" Libya

""Despite being dismissed by one Élysée adviser as a "pretentious little bastard", BHL's influence over the president was unprecedented for a philosopher. He was soon being referred to as Sarkozy's "war
chief" and "second foreign minister", and inspiring headlines such as "Plato 1, Nato 0". It was a sea change for French intellectuals: thinkers such as Jean-Paul Sartre may have influenced public opinion but they had never succeeded in directing French policy." (thanks Raed)
