Hadi Matar was charged with attacking and stabbing Salman Rushdie on a lecture stage in western New York on August 12, 2022.Salman has lived under the threat of death and attack ever since 1989 when the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwah and a €3,000,000 bounty. The fatwah was issued because Salman wrote a novel called 'The Satanic Verses' which had a passage that satirised the Quran. All of this is because of that little offense, and offense that should have rolled of the backs of those offended.Salman writes in his memoirs of the fatwah, titled Joseph Anton, his life, his career, who he is, his controversies, and as well of course, what it is like to live in captivity.

Last month's attempt on Salman Rushdie's life brought the world's attention back on Iran and the death sentence imposed on the writer by Ayatollah Khomeini more than three decades ago. More recently, Iran has been in the news with reports of crackdowns on perceived dissidents: women who choose not to wear the hijab and members of other religions especially the Baha'is. The Islamic Republic of Iran is ruled by a Supreme Leader from the Shia tradition, Ayatollah Khamenei. It is he who ultimately wields the power and imposes limits on the peoples' rights and freedoms. Given his overruling authority, it is difficult to know what ordinary people believe or how they feel about their system of government. So is this vast country of 86 million people really an Islamic nation? And if it's not, how religious is Iran?

Nous sommes le 16 août, dans la période la plus creuse de l'été. Certes, l'actualité ne s'arrête pas, mais elle tourne plutôt au ralenti. Ce qui nous permet de prendre le temps de la rétrospective et de la prospective. Retour sur un mois de juillet marqué par la première session de ce parlement inédit, où Macron n'a plus la majorité absolue. On fera un bilan sur les forces en présence, les lois qui ont été votées, les ambivalences des députés d'extrême-droite, l'alliance de fait entre les républicains et les macronistes, sans oublier la résistance de la NUPES. Puis nos chroniqueurs se projetteront sur les dossiers politiques de la rentrée qui seront très certainement chauds, avec des reformes de casse sociale comme la retraite à 65 ans ou le chamboulement de l'assurance-chômage. Nous parlerons aussi du départ du dernier soldat français au Mali, après 9 ans de lutte infructueuse contre le terrorisme islamiste. Est-ce vraiment la fin de la présence militaire française au Sahel ? Enfin, nous aborderons le drame qui a touché Salman Rushdie, écrivain américain d'origine indienne, mondialement connu pour son roman « Les versets sataniques ».

Le vendredi 12 août 2022, alors qu'il s'apprête à prendre la parole lors d'une conférence dans la ville de Chautauqua aux États-Unis, Salman Rushdie a été agressé et poignardé de dix coups de couteau au cou et à l'abdomen. L'agresseur est maîtrisé par des membres de l'assistance et Salman Rushdie reçoit les premiers soins d'urgence de la part d'une médecin présente dans la salle. L'auteur des « Versets sataniques » et des « Enfants de minuit » a survécu à ses blessures mais l'on sait aujourd'hui (début septembre) que sa convalescence sera longue. Ce geste, celui d'un jeune américain d'origine libanaise de 24 ans, est-il un acte isolé ou s'inscrit-il dans une perspective plus large, voire le maintien d'une tension entre au moins deux mondes autour de la question de la liberté d'expression ? Est-ce annonciateur de quelque chose ou au contraire le signe que rien n'a changé depuis la condamnation « des Versets sataniques » pour blasphème en 1989 ? Pour répondre à ces questions, Philippe Mazet, professeur de Culture générale au sein de la Prépa ISP.

Officiellement proclamé roi, hier à Londres, le fils aîné de la reine défunte « sera-t-il à la hauteur ? », se demande « en Une » Le Journal du Dimanche. Le nouveau souverain anglois, qui doit à présent se faire aimer de ses sujets, salue la foule sur celle du Parisien Dimanche, aux côtés de son épouse, Camilla, « longtemps la femme la plus détestée de Grande-Bretagne », rappelle ce journal. Lequel publie un sondage Ipsos, datant de mai dernier, sur la popularité des membres de la famille royale britannique. Avec une cote de 14% seulement, Charles pointe en sixième position de ce très pipole hit-parade, largement dominé par sa défunte mère, qui était alors trois fois plus populaire que lui, et même davantage. Autre sondage, celui réalisé par YouGov, également en mai dernier, et cité par Le Journal du Dimanche, indiquant que 32% des personnes interrogées estimaient que le prince de Galles qu'il était encore alors, « ferait un bon roi ». Toutefois, subodore Le JDD, « son accession au trône pourrait doper sa popularité ». Liz Truss bashing Bien sûr, la presse magazine était déjà imprimée lorsqu'est survenu le décès de la reine, mais au Royaume-Uni, la personnalité de la nouvelle Première ministre britannique avait retenu son intérêt. Portrait au vitriol de Liz Truss dans l'hebdomadaire Le Point. Selon ce magazine, « son élévation au poste suprême paraît moins qu'évidente. Ne dégageant pas le moindre charisme, animal au sang-froid ne se laissant jamais aller à la moindre émotion, elle est mauvaise oratrice. Le sourire mécaniquement figé, le menton toujours relevé en signe de défi et la voix métallique ne sont pas très télégéniques. Certes dotée d'humour et d'entregent, elle a néanmoins du mal à passer la main dans le dos des députés comme des journalistes », bucheronne ce journal. Le Point rappelle aussi qu'avant de rompre avec les Libéraux-Démocrates, alors âgée de 19 ans, cette « rebelle dans l'âme » de Liz Truss réclamait rien moins que « l'abolition de la monarchie et du nucléaire, ainsi que la légalisation des drogues ». Esquisse de portrait seulement dans L'Express, mais du même tonneau. « Tout comme son mentor "BoJo", Liz Truss a souvent joué ses décisions politiques à pile ou face, les soutenant ensuite avec une fougue étonnante. Elle fut ardente libérale démocrate en faveur de l'abolition de la monarchie, puis farouche conservatrice royaliste ; proeuropéenne avant de devenir brexiteuse passionnée. Elle se réclame de Thatcher, mais son idée de lancer des baisses d'impôts en période de forte inflation fait frémir les conservateurs les plus orthodoxes, tel l'ancien chancelier de l'Echiquier de la Dame de fer, Norman Lamont, qui l'a prévenue : "C'est une terrible erreur" », rappelle L'Express. La pantalonnade du Nobel pour Rushdie Polémique à caractère littéraire, pour conclure. Il y a – pile – quatre semaines, ici-même, nous parlions de l'appel lancé dans Le Journal du Dimanche par le philosophe et essayiste Bernard-Henri Lévy pour que le prix Nobel de littérature soit attribué en octobre prochain à son ami Salman Rushdie, après l'agression au couteau dont il venait alors d'être victime. Bonne ou mauvaise idée ? Mauvaise, très mauvaise, prévient Pierre Assouline, dans L'Express. Selon ce membre de l'académie Goncourt, « si le Nobel de littérature devait couronner le condamné à mort Rushdie sous la pression d'une campagne d'opinion, ce serait un faux pas de plus dans l'histoire mouvementée de l'institution suédoise. Et une tache sur l'œuvre sans pareil de cet écrivain qui mérite mieux et autrement. Il fallait lui donner avant ou alors plus tard (…) Mais les membres du comité Nobel détestent qu'on leur dicte leur conduite, veut croire Pierre Assouline. Les pressions dont ils sont l'objet de la part d'éditeurs, de lobbies littéraires, de gouvernements, sont contre-productives ; elles les braquent car ils y voient une intolérable tentative de manipulation de leur vote », énonce-t-il encore dans L'Express. L'auteur des Versets sataniques, prix Nobel de littérature ? Réponse dans un mois. Le temps de les lire. Ou de les relire...

También inseguro, pero con más razón, es Reino Unido, un país en plena decadencia que acaba de nombrar como primera ministra a Liz Truss, una mujer que se presenta como heredera de Margaret Thatcher pero, según John, carece totalmente de visión, principios o carisma. Finalmente, Charlie y John, ponderan un artículo reciente en the Financial Times que define a España como el país más “vivible” del mundo pero advierte que, debido al cambio climático, la mitad del territorio español pronto dejará de ser habitable.

Earlier this month, British-Indian author Salman Rushdie was brutally attacked at an event in upstate New York. In 1989, Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses so enraged Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini that he issued a global kill-order, or fatwa, on the author, his editors, and publishers.    Though Khomeini died later that year, fatwas cannot be revoked posthumously. So, Rushdie went into hiding, appearing later only under heavy security. Eventually, many in the West simply forgot about it.  Shia extremists did not.   This tell us something about how differently the secular West and radical Islam sees the world, and how short our cultural memory is compared with theirs. And, at stake is more than a contest of memory. In the Western world, we've been secularized to think of religion as a privatized matter of preference. We therefore underestimate the power that religious convictions wield, including the power that our secular religious convictions hold over our own hearts, minds, and culture.   All of which is an opportunity for Christians to show and live a better way, one that sees God, history, people, and the world so differently.

Perhaps the strongest antidote for optimism or for misplaced faith in our fellow man is watching the news. Of course, much of the media we consume is voyeuristic, so in a sort of supply-and-demand scenario, bad news makes headlines more than good news. At the same time, this is more than a problem of clickbait filling our newsfeeds. A series of events in recent years suggests that our cultural center cannot hold much longer.  Not decades but just a few days ago, prominent novelist Salman Rushdie was stabbed, not in some “shady” part of the world, but in public at a lecture in upstate New York. Also, dogs in San Francisco are becoming hooked on meth. Apparently, human excrement is so common in public areas, pets have learned where to go for a quick high from the residue of addicted residents. Radical ideologies continue to dominate headlines, which few outside of ivory towers had heard of until a few years ago. They are now compulsory at some schools. And, those who challenge the new orthodoxy are often ostracized from what is an increasingly impolite society. Healthcare now involves practices that, until yesterday, would've rightly been considered abuse, including children having otherwise healthy organs turned inside out.  Clearly, the state of our world is largely rotten. For some Christians, this indicates that the end is nigh. Particularly in the last century or so, many books and sermons have declared that we are living in the last days, so the best we can hope for is to go down fighting this increasingly fallen world.  It's easy to forget in all these headlines that things have been bad before, in some ways even worse than today. In that time and place, God called His people to keep the faith, commit to the tasks at hand, and steward the time they were given by remaining faithful. Sometimes they won against the forces of darkness and death. Sometimes they lost. Either way, their calling remained the same, and God's Kingdom marched on.  William Wilberforce was among those followers of Christ who faced down great obstacles. He deserves all of the recognition he receives as an archetype for faithful Christian engagement in the world. Eventually, because of his efforts, he won a long battle over the entrenched power of slavery in the British Empire, what he called one of the great aims that God had set before Him. But none of it happened in a day.   Wilberforce began his fight against human bondage in the late 1780s, but he did not see the fruit of his work for decades. The slave trade wasn't banned until 1807 across the British Empire and was not fully brought to an end until 1833, just days before he died. How often must he have wondered at his impossible task? How often did he consider giving up?  Closer to our own time and less well known is a story out of Russia. Detailed in a new book by Matthew Heise, The Gates of Hell: An Untold Story of Faith and Perseverance in the Early Soviet Union tells of the trials of Lutheran Christians living under the newly founded Communist tyranny. The book is encouraging and heartbreaking at the same time. The constant determination of these Christians to be faithful to their Lord in the midst of some of the 20th century's most intense persecution is encouraging. Yet, by all earthly terms, their resistance absolutely failed. They fought to retain their freedom and their faith, but few managed to even retain their lives.   They had no way to know their story's end—that all were wiped out by atheist totalitarianism. Regardless, they were faithful to the end.  Our task is no different. We don't know if ours is a Wilberforce moment, when the enduring faithfulness of God's people standing athwart the tides of history will push this world back to reality. Or if this is a Russian Lutheran moment: We will lose our lives in our quest to be faithful. What we do know is that Christ has called us to this time and this place. As Gandalf said to Frodo, when he wondered why he should have to live in such times, being meant to be here and now “is a very encouraging thought.”  So, whatever comes, great victories or the full evaporation of progress, our task is the same: faithfulness, not success.
