    Tentative d’enlèvement à Outremont

    Résumé des faits au 24 décembre 2012

    Un large périmètre de sécurité était érigé mercredi soir autour du parc François-Xavier-Garneau à Outremont, dans le cadre d'une enquête sur une tentative d'enlèvement d'enfant. Ce jour-là, mercredi 19 décembre aux alentours de 16h, « le 911 reçoit plusieurs appels de citoyens signalant une bagarre entre deux hommes dans le parc François-Xavier-Garneau, au coin du chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine et de l'avenue Outremont », précise Dany Richer, porte-parole du Service de police de Montréal (SPVM).

    Il s'agit bien là d'un crime exceptionnel, une affaire comme on en voit rarement à Montréal, la tentative d'enlèvement du petit-fils d'un richissime Montréalais. Un père de famille d'une quarantaine d'années se promenait avec son jeune fils de trois ans lorsqu'un homme les assaille par surprise.

    Le suspect se rue d'abord sur le père pour le neutraliser. À la suite d’une brève bagarre, l'agresseur tente de s'emparer de l'enfant sous les yeux du père et de s’enfuir avec l’enfant. Après s'être relevé, le père se lance alors à la poursuite du suspect.

    «L'assaillant fait quelques pas, mais un passant, témoin de l'événement, s’est interposé et a prêté main-forte au père pour immobiliser l'agresseur au sol, le temps que les policiers arrivent», explique l’agent Danny Richer, porte-parole du Service de police de Montréal (SPVM).

    Transporté au centre hospitalier le plus près pour des blessures mineures, le père affirme ne pas connaître le suspect qui l’a attaqué. L’enfant s’en sort sans aucune blessure.

    Chiheb Battikh, âgé de 51 ans, aurait eu l'intention d'enlever cet enfant de trois ans, dont le nom est frappé d'une ordonnance de non-publication, issu d'une famille d'origine suédoise particulièrement bien nantie afin de réclamer une rançon.

    Le SPVM aurait retrouvé sur l’individu arrêté des objets permettant de croire qu’il avait des mauvaises intentions. Il était armé d'un pistolet électrique Taser et de poivre de Cayenne. Les policiers auraient trouvé dans le véhicule du suspect tout le matériel nécessaire à l'enlèvement puis à la séquestration de l'enfant.

    «La perquisition au domicile du suspect aurait permis de relever d'autres éléments pour l'enquête», a ajouté Dany Richer, en entrevue téléphonique avec L'Express d'Outremont ce lundi 24 décembre.

    Selon le Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM), l'événement aurait été planifié par l'homme de 51 ans qui a été arrêté. Les premiers éléments de l'enquête policière laissent croire qu'il avait bien ciblé sa victime. Il aurait planifié son coup depuis quelques semaines, notamment en effectuant des recherches sur Internet.

    Inconnu des policiers, le suspect, Chiheb Battikh, 51 ans et d’origine tunisienne, a brièvement comparu en cour le lendemain jeudi 20 décembre dans l'après-midi pour faire faire face, selon nos confrères Métro et Radio-Canada, à une dizaine de chefs d'accusation, dont entre autres…

    - Enlèvement avec intention de détenir contre son gré en but d'obtenir une rançon;
    - Séquestration;
    - Agression armée;
    - Voies de fait avec lésions;
    - Profération de menaces;
    - Possession d'arme prohibée;
    - Port d'arme dissimulée.

    Commis d'office, l'avocate de Chiheb Battikh, Me Denise Fernet, a réclamé une évaluation psychiatrique pour déterminer «l'état d'esprit» de son client. Elle a rappelé jeudi en sortant de l'audience que l'accusé n'avait aucun antécédent judiciaire, que son geste demeure incompréhensible, en précisant: «il n'est pas bien du tout, il est confus».

    Chiheb Battikh reviendra en cour le 18 janvier prochain. D’ici là, le suspect restera détenu. M. Battikh a semblé surpris d'apprendre qu'il serait détenu pendant 30 jours. Il subira une évaluation psychiatrique d’une durée de trente jours, et demeurera incarcéré à l’Institut Pinel en attendant la suite des procédures. Les spécialistes de l'Institut Philippe-Pinel devront déterminer s'il était criminellement responsable de ses actes.

    Comme l’ont présenté plusieurs médias hertziens, la Couronne ne semble pas convaincue de la non-responsabilité criminelle dans cette affaire. «Je crois que c'est quelqu'un qui était tout à fait responsable, qui savait exactement ce qu'il faisait depuis un bon bout de temps, avec la preuve qu'on a dans notre dossier», a expliqué la procureure de la Couronne Sylvie Lemieux, en avançant que l'accusé planifiait l'enlèvement depuis au moins deux semaines, et avait choisi une victime qui avait les moyens de payer.

    «C'était ciblé, calculé. C'étaient des recherches sur internet pour trouver la victime qui, pour lui, serait la victime idéale pour demander une rançon - un gros montant d'argent - à quelqu'un qui en a les moyens. Il a fait une déclaration nous expliquant de quelle façon il a fait pour trouver la bonne victime, comment se procurer les armes dont il avait besoin et la journée même du délit», a indiqué Me Lemieux.

    Les procédures judiciaires reprendront en janvier.

    Salah Basalamah consulté en tant qu’expert par la Commission Bouchard-Taylor

    Extrait:

    Professeur à l’Université d’Ottawa et membre de l’organisation Présence musulmane, Salah Basalamah a d’ailleurs regretté que les commissaires subdivisent la population de la province entre la majorité et les minorités. « C’est une erreur stratégique. Ça prend un seul "nous" pour qu’on puisse avancer », croit M. Basalamah, l’un des experts que les commissaires ont consultés au début de leur tournée provinciale.

    Titre original : Les inquiétudes avant le rapport

    Le rapport de la Commission sur les accommodements raisonnables conclurait que la responsabilité d’améliorer les relations entre les Québécois repose sur les épaules de la majorité francophone. Des extraits du document, publiés hier par le quotidien The Gazette, ont suscité de vives inquiétudes que les commissaires Bouchard-Taylor n’ont pas dissipées.

    Selon The Gazette, Gérard Bouchard et Charles Taylor conviennent qu’il est temps pour les Québécois francophones d’être plus ouverts et de cesser de se sentir menacés par les nouveaux arrivants.

    Joint par La Presse, Gérard Bouchard a toutefois refusé de confirmer ou d’infirmer ces informations. Le rapport doit être diffusé jeudi ou vendredi prochain lors d’une conférence de presse. D’ici là, ce sera l’omerta. « Je n’ai pas de commentaires pour le moment. Je vais parler le jour où nous allons présenter le rapport. Et c’est le premier ministre qui va décider quand ça va se faire », a-t-il dit.

    Le responsable des communications de la Commission, Sylvain Leclerc, a fait preuve du même mutisme. « On ne veut pas discuter sur une fuite. On va attendre de présenter le rapport en bonne et due forme. Les recommandations du rapport final vont être dévoilées au moment de la conférence de presse. »

    Pierre Bosset, l’un des membres du comité consultatif, s’est cependant dit étonné de la teneur des articles. M. Bosset a aussi consulté certains chapitres du rapport, vraisemblablement tirés de la même version que celle qui a fait l’objet d’une fuite.

    Selon M. Bosset, le document qu’il a lu fait peu de cas de la fracture francophones-anglophones, et ne ferait qu’évoquer la question de l’apprentissage des langues. « Il va de soi que l’on ait mis l’accent sur le rôle des Canadiens français, puisque ce sont eux qui occupent les postes de responsabilité, mais dans le rapport, il y avait une insistance sur la réciprocité de l’intégration, sur le fait qu’il s’agit d’une responsabilité partagée », a-t-il affirmé à La Presse.

    Au dire de M. Bosset, aucun des membres du comité consultatif n’a d’ailleurs pu consulter le rapport dans son intégralité, ni même les recommandations finales des commissaires. Elles ne figurent pas non plus dans les articles publiés hier.

    Vent de protestation

    Ceux qui ont vécu de près la crise des accommodements raisonnables ont donc hâte de prendre connaissance de la version définitive du document. Mais déjà, des réactions très vives ont fusé des cercles de défense de la langue française.

    « Les Québécois doivent refuser de se laisser culpabiliser comme cela, a dénoncé Mario Beaulieu, du Mouvement Montréal Français. Je trouve cela révoltant. Ils proposent exactement le contraire de la solution en affirmant que les Canadiens français devraient apprendre plus d’anglais, alors qu’une partie du problème vient du fait que le français n’est pas reconnu comme une langue commune. »

    Jean Dorion, président de la Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste, a déploré que les auteurs du rapport semblent avoir accordé une telle importance à la question linguistique et au rôle des francophones. « Si le rapport n’est qu’un ensemble de remontrances envers la majorité (francophone), cela sera désastreux. Cela va exacerber les tensions entre les extrémistes des deux côtés. »

    « Dès le départ, on a eu l’impression que les commissaires allaient donner mauvaise conscience aux Québécois en les accusant de ne pas comprendre les gens qui les entourent », a noté la présidente du Mouvement national des Québécoises et des Québécois, Chantale Trottier.

    Jean-Paul Perrault, d’Impératif français, a critiqué la suggestion de favoriser l’apprentissage de l’anglais. « Les commissaires n’ont absolument pas compris la spécificité de la nation québécoise. Ils semblent nous condamner à une plus forte anglicisation pour s’ouvrir à l’immigration. »

    Plusieurs ont été choqués de l’utilisation de l’expression « Canadien français » dans le texte du rapport (confirmée par M. Bosset). « C’est un concept dépassé et méprisant, a critiqué M. Dorion. Est-ce que mes enfants, à moitié japonais, sont des Canadiens français ? Ce sont des Québécois, cela, c’est indéniable. »

    Professeur à l’Université d’Ottawa et membre de l’organisation Présence musulmane, Salah Basalamah a d’ailleurs regretté que les commissaires subdivisent la population de la province entre la majorité et les minorités. « C’est une erreur stratégique. Ça prend un seul "nous" pour qu’on puisse avancer », croit M. Basalamah, l’un des experts que les commissaires ont consultés au début de leur tournée provinciale. Certaines bribes du rapport lui paraissent prometteuses, mais il y détecte des problèmes fondamentaux. « Ils semblent faire retomber une grande partie du blâme sur les Québécois francophones. Je pense que la question de l’intégration est une responsabilité partagée par tous les citoyens », a dit M. Basalamah.

    Lueurs d’espoir

    D’autres, comme Kiranpal Singh, étaient plus enthousiastes. Lorsque la polémique du kirpan a éclaté au Québec, il était président du principal temple sikh de Montréal, la Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar de LaSalle. Il a épaulé la famille du jeune Gurbaj Multani qui voulait faire reconnaître le droit de porter le couteau cérémonial à l’école.

    « Ce que je lis aujourd’hui me plaît. Les commissaires demandent à la majorité de mieux connaître les autres religions. Ceux qui connaissent bien le sikhisme savent que le kirpan n’est pas utilisé comme une arme », a dit M. Singh hier à La Presse.

    Salam Elmenyawi, président du Conseil musulman de Montréal, s’est dit heureux que les commissaires s’inquiètent du sort des musulmans québécois, en dénonçant le chômage élevé. « Ils posent le bon diagnostic, mais il faut voir quels remèdes seront trouvés. »

    Journaliste pour des médias de la communauté maghrébine, Lamine Foura reste pour sa part sur sa faim. « Ce qu’on lit jusqu’à maintenant, c’est des choses qu’on savait déjà. Cela ne justifie pas qu’on ait dépensé 5 millions sur cette commission ! s’est exclamé M. Foura. J’espère que dans le rapport final, les commissaires font l’évaluation sérieuse des programmes d’intégration. S’ils s’en tiennent seulement à ce qu’ils ont entendu pendant la consultation, c’est un peu léger. »

    IQRA.ca announces that IRFAN-Canada withdraws sponsorship of RIS 2012 Islamist convention

    Original address: http://iqra.ca/2012/irfan-canada-withdraws-sponsorship-of-ris/

    Source: IQRA.ca
    Date: December 15, 2012

    EXCERPTS:

    The organizers of Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) conference announced tonight that the relief organization, IRFAN-Canada, has withdrawn its sponsorship of the event.

    IRFAN’s charitable status was revoked by Revenue Canada Charitable Directorate in 2011.

    (...) Earlier this month, the Reviving the Islamic Spirit event was attacked by extreme anti-Muslim blogs for being sponsored by organizations that they claimed are affiliated to Hamas.

    Those blog postings were picked up by a few mainstream media outlets and garnered national coverage when Liberal MP and leadership candidate, Justin Trudeau, was questioned about his participation in the event at a news conference in St-Jerome, Quebec on December 10th.

    “I’ve heard a number of people express concerns about this event that I certainly don’t understand and I don’t share,” Trudeau said during the news conference. “It’s a group of young people who’ve pulled this together. Most of the organizers are young Muslims who are looking at trying to bridge the gap between the reality for Muslim Canadians and mainstream Canada and I’m very proud to be able to contribute.”

    Original title: IRFAN-CANADA Withdraws Sponsorship of RIS

    (TORONTO – December 15, 2012) – The organizers of Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) conference announced tonight that the relief organization, IRFAN-Canada, has withdrawn its sponsorship of the event.

    IRFAN’s charitable status was revoked by Revenue Canada Charitable Directorate in 2011.

    “RIS is aware that IRFAN denies any wrongdoing and has been in the process of challenging the revocation of its status,” RIS said in a statement.

    “The material evidence used by Revenue Canada against IRFAN are matters best left to the relevant legal bodies to be resolved,” said Fouzan Khan, a founder and director of RIS. “It is extremely unfortunate that this issue has threatened to detract from the many accomplishments of RIS in the last ten years.”

    Earlier this month, the Reviving the Islamic Spirit event was attacked by extreme anti-Muslim blogs for being sponsored by organizations that they claimed are affiliated to Hamas.

    Those blog postings were picked up by a few mainstream media outlets and garnered national coverage when Liberal MP and leadership candidate, Justin Trudeau, was questioned about his participation in the event at a news conference in St-Jerome, Quebec on December 10th.

    “I’ve heard a number of people express concerns about this event that I certainly don’t understand and I don’t share,” Trudeau said during the news conference. “It’s a group of young people who’ve pulled this together. Most of the organizers are young Muslims who are looking at trying to bridge the gap between the reality for Muslim Canadians and mainstream Canada and I’m very proud to be able to contribute.”

    In the last ten years RIS has emerged as a major platform for some of the leading thinkers from around the world to address one of the largest assembly of Muslims in the western hemisphere.

    “The conference has always been about uniting and joining hands with scholars, journalists, academics, representatives from other faiths, and artists to promote messages of peace and tolerance,” said RIS spokeswoman, Farhia Ahmed.

    Over the years speakers have included the late Jack Layton, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Robert Fisk, Pamela Paul, Ambassador Atalla Shabazz, Chris Hedges, Dr. John Ralston Saul, Prof. Syed Hosein Nasr, former RCMP Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli and former Toronto Chief of Police Julian Fantino.

    “The message at RIS conferences have helped counter extremism by offering a better understanding of the Islamic tradition in the modern context and this in turn has helped second and third generation Muslims make meaningful contributions as citizens while living a life of faith”, added Ahmed.

    The convention is organized and managed by approximately 400 young Canadian volunteers. Every year, thousands of dollars collected at the conference are donated to local food banks and charities.

    “On the tenth anniversary (2011), The Hon. Prime Minister Stephen Harper sent a congratulatory statement and the government of Canada issued certificates to each of the speakers,” said Ahmed.

    Australia Muslim school sacks its second principal amid allegations of financial mismanagement against the school board

    Excerpts:

    The school rents its property from the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, and shares many of the same directors as the country's peak Muslim body.

    Millions of dollars from the school, which is 75 per cent government-funded, were being paid to AFIC in "management fees" and backdated rent, with a subsequent federal government audit revealing no value for money for the school in the payments.

    Original title: Muslim school sacks its second principal

    AUSTRALIA'S largest Muslim school has had its second principal removed in under six months amid allegations of financial mismanagement against the school board.

    The principal of Malek Fahd Islamic School, Refaat El-Hajje, was stood down from his role on Sunday after a security guard went to his house and informed him that he would no longer be needed in the position.

    The dismissal followed a demand by Mr El-Hajje to see the finances for the school of more than 2000 students at Greenacre in southwest Sydney.

    The school rents its property from the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, and shares many of the same directors as the country's peak Muslim body.

    Mr El-Hajje has written a letter to NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli demanding more action be taken by the government and police over alleged financial mismanagement at the school in the wake of a long-running scandal that has caused the NSW government to freeze funds to the school and forced a federal government audit.

    "As the administrator of the school for the last six months I have seen continuous AFIC interference and unethical behaviour by both the AFIC board members and the school board members. The school has acted for profit with money trail moving from MFIS to AFIC," Mr El-Hajje writes in a letter obtained by The Australian.

    It is understood he has also outlined the allegations to the Independent Schools Association, the Board of Studies and the NSW Police.

    Following reports in The Australian last year exposing the nature of the finances at the school, Mr Piccoli demanded the school pay back $9 million in state funds after he ruled the school was operating for a profit to benefit its manager, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils.

    Millions of dollars from the school, which is 75 per cent government-funded, were being paid to AFIC in "management fees" and backdated rent, with a subsequent federal government audit revealing no value for money for the school in the payments.

    The school's chairman and then president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, Ikebal Patel, was removed from his roles following the finding.

    However, this was not before Intaj Ali, Malek Fahd's former and respected principal of 23 years, was removed last year after a dispute with the school's board.

    Representatives of the school and federation did not respond to requests for comment.

    CAIR-CAN calls on newly-elected PQ government to adopt ‘interculturalism’ and apply the Bouchard-Taylor recommendations

    Excerpt:

    (CAIR-CAN), (a) national Muslim civil rights advocacy group is calling on Quebec’s new government to promote “interculturalism” to help strengthen the province and avoid division.

    (...) “The new government should build on the recommendations of the Bouchard-Taylor report. To this day, it remains the clearest outline for how Quebec can best respect and uphold the rights and freedoms of all its citizens to foster a harmonious and productive society,” says Ms. Elghawaby (CAIR-CAN Human Rights Officer).

    Original title: CAIR-CAN calls on newly-elected Quebec government to promote inclusive society

    - For Immediate Release -

    (Ottawa, Canada, September 5, 2012) – A national Muslim civil rights advocacy group is calling on Quebec’s new government to promote “interculturalism” to help strengthen the province and avoid division.

    “It’s time for the Parti Québécois to promote the province as a place where differences among people of all backgrounds and faiths are deemed as complementary strengths, rather than threats, to Quebec values,” says Amira Elghawaby, Human Rights Officer at the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN).

    The PQ has said it would institute a Charter of Secularism once in office. The Charter would ban provincial employees from wearing overt religious symbols including kippahs, hijabs, and turbans, though crosses on necklaces would be acceptable.

    Tensions within Quebec, as in other parts of Canada, have flared from time to time over the needs of diverse groups. At the request of the previous government, sociologist Gerard Bouchard and philosopher Charles Taylor produced a report on how the state should best balance everyone’s needs. The report included the recommendation that the province address the under-representation of ethnic minorities in government. Abridged versions of the report can be found here: English / French.

    “A secular charter is the ‘radical option’ that Mr. Bouchard warned against,” says Ms. Elghawaby, referring to the sociologist’s comments last year that without a clear program on reasonable accommodation, religious freedoms could be curtailed.

    “The new government should build on the recommendations of the Bouchard-Taylor report. To this day, it remains the clearest outline for how Quebec can best respect and uphold the rights and freedoms of all its citizens to foster a harmonious and productive society,” says Ms. Elghawaby.

    CAIR-CAN is a national, non-profit, grassroots organization striving to be a leading voice that enriches Canadian society through Muslim civic engagement and the promotion of human rights.

    Iranian Press TV interviews Salam Elmenyawi: Canada is racist and Quebec is perhaps the most anti-Muslim province

    Excerpts from the Press TV interview with Salam Elmenyawi

    0:00 / Press TV – “Quebec has the second largest Muslim population in Canada. The census bureau says about 200,000 Muslims live in Quebec. It is perhaps the fastest growing religion in Canada and is expected to triple within the next 20 years, but critics say with all of its diversity, Quebec is also perhaps one of the most Islamaphobic provinces in the country. The president of the Muslim Council of Montreal is setting the record straight.”

    0:32 / Salam Elmenyawi – “This kind of prejudices is part of the way of living today unfortunately and we still have to put up with it and try to find ways to go through our life.”

    0:59 / Salam Elmenyawi – “911 justified all that. It made it look like it’s ok to be racist against Muslims and it’s ok to have hate and it’s ok to show it and it’s ok to express it in the media and different places. But, of course, it’s not ok.”

    1:39 / Press TV – “Adding to all this, the Public Safety Minister decided recently to cancel all contracts of non-Christians chaplains at federal prisons.”

    1:47 / Salam Elmenyawi – “Unfortunately, recently, they (the federal authorities) decided to cut the costs, to get all those part-time chaplains out of it because the population is not there to have one full time, so they want to get rid of all the part-time serving prisons right now, even though it has been working flawlessly and it’s been doing very good service... But because of the fear-mongering... That there are imams who go there and they start to recruit people from prisons and stuff like this. All, just pure lies and fear-mongering and wrong statements all over the Internet. No facts at all.”

    Date: 8 janvier 2009

    Titre original : Israël et le Hamas

    Grâce au ciel... et peut-être aussi grâce à Nicolas Sarkozy, dont l'activisme forcené a tout de même de bons côtés, des pourparlers s'annoncent entre Israël et l'Égypte, lesquels mèneraient, espérons-le, à l'arrêt des hostilités, incluant l'arrêt de la contrebande d'armes pratiquée par le Hamas.

    Les attaques du Hamas sont-elles, comme trop de gens le croient, une réplique à l'«occupation» israélienne? Pas du tout.

    Le territoire bombardé par les roquettes fait partie intégrante d'Israël depuis sa fondation. Il n'a rien d'un territoire «occupé».

    La bande de Gaza a bel et bien été occupée à partir de 1967, alors qu'Israël sortait victorieux d'une guerre qu'il n'avait pas voulue, l'attaque concertée venant de l'Égypte, de la Syrie et de la Jordanie. Mais Israël s'est retiré de Gaza il y a trois ans, après avoir envoyé ses militaires arracher de force 7000 colons juifs à leurs terres.

    Ce n'est donc pas contre une «occupation» que se bat le Hamas, à moins évidemment que l'on considère que tout le territoire d'Israël serait illégitimement «occupé « depuis sa reconnaissance, en 1948, par la communauté internationale, et qu'en conséquence l'État hébreu doit être démantelé, voire carrément anéanti.

    Le Hamas, emporté par son idéologie suicidaire, et encouragé par ses parrains iraniens, poursuit au grand jour sa lutte d'arrière-garde contre l'existence même de l'État hébreu. Loin d'être le fait d'une minorité de Gazaouis égarés, les tirs de roquettes qui ont déclenché la riposte israélienne sont le fait du gouvernement du Hamas, qui exerce un contrôle absolu sur cette malheureuse bande de terre.

    Si le Hamas, une fois à la tête d'un territoire autonome enfin libéré de l'insoutenable provocation que constituait la présence des colonies juives, avait utilisé les fonds considérables mis à sa disposition par la communauté internationale pour relever le niveau de vie de ses misérables citoyens, on n'en serait pas là aujourd'hui.

    Au contraire, ses hommes se sont empressés de détruire, dans une rage aveugle ou par calcul (la politique du pire étant toujours la stratégie première des organisations terroristes), les serres et les vergers abandonnés par les colons juifs. Ces 3000 acres de terres cultivées et irriguées sont aujourd'hui des champs vagues. Et le Hamas, au lieu d'importer des vivres, a préféré approvisionner son stock d'armements clandestins par des souterrains: depuis son retrait de Gaza, Israël a reçu quelque 6000 missiles!

    À entendre les compagnons de route du Hamas, Gaza ne serait soumise qu'à un seul blocus, celui imposé par Israël. Mais l'Égypte aussi a verrouillé sa frontière! Venant d'un pays arabe, cet autre blocus ressemble à une trahison, mais l'Égypte aussi a ses raisons. Étant elle-même aux prises avec la minorité menaçante des «Frères musulmans», elle n'a pas besoin d'un autre ferment de fanatisme.

    Pour ce qui est du blocus israélien, il est bien évident que les Israéliens, qui détestent apparaître comme des tortionnaires, l'auraient levé si le Hamas avait cessé ses bombardements. De la même façon, Gaza aurait pu éventuellement accéder à une pleine autonomie - avec accès à la mer et à l'espace aérien - si ses dirigeants avaient fait durablement la preuve qu'ils renoncent au terrorisme. Mais quel pays tolérerait que le voisin qui lui voue une haine irréductible puisse lui exporter des kamikazes, ou importer par bateau et par avion les armes qui lui serviront à bombarder ses villes... à plus forte raison s'il fait face, sur sa frontière nord, au même type d'ennemi?

    Les trêves sont une maigre défense, quand l'ennemi en profite pour se réarmer, comme le fait présentement le Hezbollah au Liban, le Hamas ayant quant à lui profité de la trêve pour tripler la portée de ses lance-roquettes.

    Certes, les forces en présence sont incomparables, entre une armée moderne et une bande de fanatiques aspirant au martyre. Mais le Hamas, tout comme le Hezbollah en 2006, jouit d'un avantage stratégique indiscutable: comme la vie humaine ne compte pas, il installe ses armements dans des domiciles, des écoles, des quartiers densément peuplés. Toute riposte militaire aboutit inévitablement à d'atroces bavures. Quelle puissante arme de propagande, que ces photos déchirantes d'enfants massacrés... avec la complicité meurtrière de ceux-là mêmes qui auraient dû les protéger!

    Alexandre Trudeau praises Fidel Castro

    Author: Alexandre Trudeau
    Source: Toronto Star, August 13, 2006, p. A4

    Excerpts:

    He (Fidel Castro) lives to learn and to put his knowledge in the service of the revolution. For Fidel, revolution is really a work of reason. In his view, revolution, when rigorously adopted, cannot fail to lead humanity towards ever greater justice, towards an ever more perfect social order…

    His intellect is one of the most broad and complete that can be found. He is an expert on genetics, on automobile combustion engines, on stock markets. On everything.

    Combined with a Herculean physique and extraordinary personal courage, this monumental intellect makes Fidel the giant that he is.

    He is something of a superman…

    They (Cubans) do occasionally complain, often as an adolescent might complain about a too strict and demanding father…

    For a generation to come, they will be haunted by the vision of a society that never existed and probably never will exist, but which their once-leader, the most brilliant and obsessed of all, never stopped believing could exist and should exist.

    Original title: The last days of the patriarch

    I grew up knowing that Fidel Castro had a special place among my family's friends. We had a picture of him at home a great big man with a beard who wore military fatigues and held my baby brother Michel in his arms. When he met my little brother in 1976, he even gave him a nickname that would stick with him his whole life "Micha- Miche."

    A few years later, when Michel was around 8 years old, I remember him complaining to my mother that my older brother and I both had more friends than he did. My mother told him that, unlike us, he had the greatest friend of all he had Fidel.

    For many years, Cuba remained Michel's exclusive realm; whenever someone would accompany my father there, it would naturally be Michel. It wasn't until after both my father's and brother's deaths that I got a chance to visit Fidel and his country, Cuba.

    Fidel may have been at first a political contact of my father's but their relationship was much more than that. It was extra- political.

    Indeed, like my father, in private, Fidel is not a politician. He is more in the vein of a great adventurer or a great scientific mind. Fidel doesn't really do politics. He is a revolutionary.

    He lives to learn and to put his knowledge in the service of the revolution. For Fidel, revolution is really a work of reason. In his view, revolution, when rigorously adopted, cannot fail to lead humanity towards ever greater justice, towards an ever more perfect social order.

    Fidel is also the most curious man that I have ever met. He wants to know all there is to be known. He is famous for not sleeping, instead spending the night studying and learning.

    He also knows what he doesn't know, and when he meets you he immediately seeks to identify what he might learn from you. Once he has ascertained an area of expertise that might be of interest, he begins with his questions. One after the other. He synthesizes information quickly and gets back to you with ever deeper and more complex questions, getting more and more excited as he illuminates, through his Socratic interrogation, new parcels of knowledge and understanding he might add to his own mental library.

    His intellect is one of the most broad and complete that can be found. He is an expert on genetics, on automobile combustion engines, on stock markets. On everything.

    Combined with a Herculean physique and extraordinary personal courage, this monumental intellect makes Fidel the giant that he is.

    He is something of a superman. My father once told us how he had expressed to Fidel his desire to do some diving in Cuba. Fidel took him to the most enchanting spot on the island and set him up with equipment and a tank. He stood back as my father geared up and began to dive alone.

    When my father had reached a depth of around 60 feet, he realized that Fidel was down there with him, that he had descended without a tank and that there he was with a knife in hand prying sea urchins off the ocean floor, grinning.

    Back on the surface, they feasted on the raw sea urchins, seasoned with lime juice.

    Fidel turns 80 years old today. A couple of weeks ago, he shocked the world by turning power over to his brother Raul after holding it without interruption since the 1959 revolution. In newspapers across the world, pundits solemnly declared that even giants are mortal and that no revolution is eternal. Historians even began to prepare the space that will be granted Fidel in history books.

    Fidel may seem an anachronism a visionary statesman in a world where his kind have long since been replaced by mere managers, a 20th-century icon still present in the 21st century.

    There is also wild speculation about what fate awaits Cuba after Castro. It is important to note, however, that while the whole world works itself up about the matter, Cubans themselves play it cool. Some of my shrewder Cuban friends even say that this temporary withdrawal from power is another one of Castro's clever strategies; that it is something of a test and that he will soon be back at the helm. They say that, on one hand, Castro is allowing the Cuban people, and more specifically the Cuban state apparatus, to become accustomed to the leadership of his brother Raul. On the other hand, Castro is carefully watching for hints as to how the world - and, more importantly, the United States - will react to his final departure.

    Cubans remain very proud of Castro, even those who don't share his vision. They know that, among the world's many peoples, they have the most audacious and brilliant of leaders. They respect his intellectual machismo and rigour.

    But Castro's leadership can be something of a burden, too. They do occasionally complain, often as an adolescent might complain about a too strict and demanding father. The Jefe (chief) sees all and knows all, they might say. In particular, young Cubans have told me that an outsider cannot ever really imagine what it is like to live in such a hermetic society, where everyone has an assigned spot and is watched and judged carefully. You can never really learn on your own, they might say. The Jefe always knows what is best for you. It can be suffocating, they say.

    I met a young man in the small provincial town of Remedios who worked there as a cigar roller. We shared a great love for the works of Dostoyevsky. When I expressed to him my excitement at meeting a fellow aficionado of Russian literature, he flatly told me "Yes, Fidel has taught me to read and to think, but look what work he sets me out to do with this education I roll cigars!"

    Cuba under Castro is a remarkably literate and healthy country, but it is undeniably poor. Historians will note, however, that never in modern times has a small, peaceful country been more subjected to unfair and malicious treatment by a superpower than Cuba has by the United States.

    From the very start, the United States never gave Castro's Cuba a choice. Either Castro had to submit himself and his people to America's will or he had to hold his ground against them.

    Which is what he did, in the process drawing the Cuban people into this taxing dialectic that continues to this day. Cubans pay the price and may occasionally complain of their fate, but they rarely blame Castro. The United States never fails to make the Cuban people well aware of its spite for this small neighbouring country that dares to be independent.

    With the possible exception of Nelson Mandela, already well into retirement, Fidel is the last of the global patriarchs. Reason, revolution and virtue are becoming more and more distant and abstract concepts. We will perhaps never see another patriarch.

    We thus have to conceive of the departure of the last patriarch in psychoanalytical terms. The death of the father doesn't signal our liberation from him - quite the contrary. The death of a father so grand and present as Castro will, rather, immortalize him in the minds of his children.

    It is true that Cubans may eventually cast away the communist orthodoxy of the revolution. They will become tempted by American capital and values as soon as the embargo against them is lifted, something that will surely follow in the not so distant future. They will have new opportunities for individual fulfilment and downfall. Without a doubt, Cuba without Castro will not remain unchanged.

    But Cubans will continue to be subjected to Castro's influence. Whether they like it or not, they will continue to be called out by his voice, by his questions, by his inescapable rationality, which, whether they heed its call or not, demands they defend the integrity of Cuba and urges them to seek justice and excellence in all things.

    For a generation to come, they will be haunted by the vision of a society that never existed and probably never will exist, but which their once-leader, the most brilliant and obsessed of all, never stopped believing could exist and should exist.

    Cubans will always feel privileged that they, and they alone, had Fidel.
