‘If the Jew did not exist, the anti-Semite would invent him.’

Jean-Paul Sartre, Anti-Semite and Jew: An Exploration of the Etiology of Hate

Hey, world! My people are murdered and torn to pieces! Not the soldiers! The innocent population living far off the military activities! Would you still keep silence?

Where are you the graduates from the Faculties of Philosophy who talks about ‘human dignity and universal values’ and in the meantime derives pleasure from unethical cartoons; those who quotes Exupery and commit everyone to save the Planet; or the harlequin-racist constantly ‘fighting against terror’? When one of your citizens, no matter drug dealer, maniac or pedophile, is attacked or homicided the bells are clanged! Oh, tragedy!

However, when it comes to the bright children, young or aged people of Azerbaijan, no worries if they are murdered, bombed or shot out of a clear blue sky?! Satanic cruelty! Bigotry!

‘Antisemitism, in short, is fear of the human condition. The antisemite is a man who wishes to be pitiless stone, a furious torrent, a devastating thunderbolt — anything except a man.’

Why the great and exceptional Sartre wrote this book in 1946? Not by a coincidence! In this book, he tried to highlight that not only Nazis employed the torture and horror of anti-semitism, but even French society was leaning towards and supporting the Nazi occupiers. Up to this day! And, regretfully, I am not mistaken!

‘Above all, try always to be able to feel deeply any injustice committed against any person in any part of the world.’ The timeless words of Ernesto Guevara.

P.S. The painting I chose for this article is Picasso’s Guernica. Pablo painted it in Paris, in 1937 further to the bombing of Guernica, the village in northern Spain, by Nazi Germany and Italy.
