Michael Parenti: “Any democratic victory or awakening that happens – even small – is a step forward.”
Mohsen Abdelmoumen: After reading your powerful and very strong book about imperialism, “The Face of Imperialism”, we feel the need to read again Lenin’s « Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism« , because your book brings added value. What do you think?
Michael Parenti: It is generous of you to claim that my work adds value to Lenin’s. I read his book forty years ago so I cannot claim to be drawing directly from it. But certainly we can say my book was doing some of the same things that his had done, for instance: trying to show the link between capitalism and colonial imperialism, revealing the key role played by cartels, and how the imposing contradictions of capitalism work themselves out in brutal imperatives.

During the period between 1830 and 1962, France practiced brutal racial extermination in Algeria, which led to the killing of 5 million innocent civilians, yes 5 million. Not many people in this world know about this fact because the hypocrite French government, which claims human rights and freedom, doesn’t want you to know about their real ugly face. Because if you know and the world knows then they would be forced to admit their war crimes and apologize to Algeria.

Henry Kissinger. D.R.
In order to best perform our work by giving the floor to various figures, even those for which we have no sympathy – this is called journalistic ethics-, we had asked you for an interview to obtain your testimony on your long political career that made history, even if it is not in the good sense of the word. After skipping long our solicitations, we received your response soothing where you have congratulated us for our professionalism, but that was nothing more that a way to flee as you have done it your whole life. Although you have thanked us for our investigative work, knowing your political career, we wonder if it is a compliment or an insult to us and to our readers. Your refusal does not surprise us because we know your faculty to avoid embarrassing questions. The Chilean judge Juan Guzman has understood it too, since you have never wanted to answer to his thirty questions about your links with Pinochet that he submitted you. Regarding the quote to appear that addressed you a French judge during one of your trips to Paris, you preferred to flee France rather than respond. It seems that judges and collectives chase you each other across the planet for war crimes. How are you always in freedom while you are searched in several countries? Lire la suite »

The purpose of this essay is 4-fold: 1. To identify the nature of the crime – the genocidal character of the armed assault and the sequence leading up to it; 2. To identify the direct perpetrators of the war crimes and their domestic and international accomplices; 3. To explain the ties binding leaders, policymakers, propagandists, accomplices and followers, including their ideologies, material interests and organizational structure which make these crimes not only possible, but met so far with impunity and 4. To identify the larger imperial interests with which Israel allies with the US, and in pursuit of which, the Gaza assault is a horrifying dress rehearsal. Lire la suite »
