  • ’Israel was born in sin. I’m collaborating with a criminal country,’ says former PM’s son
    Ofer Aderet | Sep. 19, 2021 | Haaretz.com

    Scion to an iconic Zionist family and former member of the Shin Bet, Yaakov Sharett, 95, has become an anti-Zionist who encourages people to leave Israel

    At the end of a series of meetings with Yaakov “Kobi” Sharett, after a total of about ten hours of interviews, with some chutzpah I asked him the obvious question. I wanted to know if he was sure that what he was saying, was said with a clear, considered mind. Sharett, who recently entered his 95th year, smiled and nodded, yes.

    Yaakov Sharett, the son of Israel’s first foreign minister and second prime minister, Moshe Sharett, feels no need to mince his words. He is sharp, incisive and precise – and wants to send to the readers a message that is hard to digest.

    The son of the man who signed Israel’s Declaration of Independence in 1948 is ending his days as an anti-Zionist who opposes aliyah and encourages emigration from Israel, predicts dark days for the country. He even supports the Iranian nuclear program.

    “The State of Israel and the Zionist enterprise were born in sin. That’s the way it is,” said this man, who served in the pre-state Palmach, volunteered for the Jewish Brigade in the British Army during World War II, cofounded a kibbutz in the Negev, and served in the Shin Bet security Service and Nativ, the government’s liaison bureau for immigration from Eastern Europe. “This original sin pursues and will pursue us and hang over us. We justify it, and it has become an existential fear, which expresses itself in all sorts of ways. There is a storm beneath the surface of the water,” he says.

    “I’m 94 years old,” added Sharett (the interview took place before his 95th birthday). “I reached my age in peace. Financially, my situation is reasonable. But I fear for the future and fate of my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”

    Speaking from a penthouse in central Tel Aviv (prime real estate), you don’t appear to be suffering.

    “I describe myself as a collaborator against my will. I’m a forced collaborator with a criminal country. I’m here, I have nowhere to go. Because of my age I can’t go anywhere. And that bothers me. Every day. This recognition won’t leave me. The recognition that in the end Israel is a country occupying and abusing another people.”

    The ‘Get thee out of thine country’ gene

    Some of Sharetts – the family consists of Yaakov and his wife Rina, with their three children, five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren – already moved abroad, to New York.

    His grandfather, Yaakov Shertok – for whom he was named, and whose surname was later Hebraicized to “Sharett” – was among the founders of the Bilu “Palestine pioneers” movement. He reached Israel in 1882, after a series of pogroms in Russia that came to be dubbed Sufot b’Negev: “Storms in the South.” But a few years later he went back, “yarad,” his grandson says, and had a family in the Diaspora. Moshe Sharett, Yaakov’s father was born in the city of Kherson on the Dnieper River, which is today in Russia, and back then was in Ukraine. Then, in 1906, in the wake of more pogroms, the grandfather and his family returned to Israel – this time permanently.

    Your father made aliyah at age 12. Did he consider himself a Zionist?

    “My father made aliyah because his father made aliyah. Not because he wanted to himself. It’s one of the differences between Sharett and the Second Aliyah band, which founded Mapei and the country. They, and Ben-Gurion at their head, were older than him and made aliyah of their own will. But Sharett was not one of them. He did not undergo any internal upheaval that turned him into a Zionist.”

    When they arrived, the family went to live in the Arab village of Ein Senya north of Ramallah. Over the next two years Moshe learned Arabic. In 1908 they moved to Tel Aviv, where he studied, along with his sister Rivka, in the first class of the Herzliya Hebrew Gymnasium high school.

    Later, one of his teachers at the school told about the young man who suddenly stood up and began speaking Arabic, so much so that “I didn’t believe he was a Jew.”

    The Sharett siblings made friends at school who would became family, and would become known in the pre-state Jewish community, the “Yishuv,” as the “four in-laws.” These included Dov Hoz, one of the founders of the pre-state Haganah underground militia and one of the pioneers of flying in British Mandate Palestine; Eliyahu Golomb, the uncrowned commander of the Haganah; and Shaul Avigur – originally Meirov, a founder of the Haganah and the commander of the Mossad Le’aliyah Bet mission, to smuggle Jews into Palestine; later he would become the head of Nativ.

    Moshe married Tzipora Meirov, Avigur’s sister. Hoz married Rivka, Sharett’s sister. Golomb married Ada, the younger sister of Moshe and Rivka. The Shertok family home, on Rothschild Boulevard served as the headquarters of the Haganah and the meetings of the group’s leadership – led by the “in-laws” – were held there. A famous phrase from the period attributed the rebirth of Israel to the acts of “the miracles and the in-laws” (it rhymes in Hebrew). Tzipora, Moshe Sharett’s wife and Yaakov’s mother, born in Kvutzat Kinneret, studied agriculture in England, specializing in dairy. Back in Israel, she managed the workers moshav in Nahalat Yehuda near Rishon Letzion.

    After high school, Moshe Sharett went to Istanbul, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, which then controlled the land that would be Israel, to study law – as did both Ben-Gurion and the future president Yitzhak Ben Zvi – but World War I, which broke out in 1914, cut the plan short. He returned to Palestine and became active in the “Ottomanization” (or Turkification) Movement – which said that only if the Jews in Israel would take on Ottoman citizenship would it be possible to prevent their expulsion.

    In the school where he had studied when he was young, he now taught Turkish, and later even enlisted in the Ottoman army. “My father said that they didn’t come to dispossess the Arabs, but to live with them. He believed there would be room for everyone,” said Yaakov. This approach, conciliatory, naïve or self-righteous – everyone can decide for themselves – pushed Sharett into being the eternal “number 2.” His son agrees that today they would be calling him scornfully a “leftist” and maybe even “hater of Israel.”

    Over the next few decades, he worked his way into the heart of Zionist activity when he was chosen to be the head of the diplomatic department of the Jewish Agency. His resume includes the strategic planning of the “Tower and Stockade” enterprise; the building of the Tel Aviv port; the founding of the Jewish auxiliary police force (Notrim); and the jewel in the crown – the project for volunteering for the British army, peaking in the establishment of the Jewish Brigade during World War II.

    When Israel was founded, Sharett was appointed foreign minister; later he would replace Ben-Gurion as prime minister for a short time.

    It is hard to doubt your father’s Zionism and love of the land. Today he has great-grandchildren in New York. How would he feel if he knew about it?

    “It’s impossible to discount yerida [leaving Israel] as a curse. There are almost no Israelis who don’t have relatives overseas. I’m happy that I have granddaughters, great-granddaughters and a great-grandson in New York.

    "I’m not ashamed to say it. Sharett had a yored father too. My grandfather. If he hadn’t left Israel, I wouldn’t have been born, because after he made yerida he established a family. As opposed to the false mantra ‘I have no other country,’ the facts show that there are other countries. There is more than one land. Over a million Israelis live abroad. The ideological Zionist commitment evaporates the more the generations pass. People understand that there are better places where to raise children and live. Everywhere has problems, life itself is a problem, but Israel has existential problems.”

    Nonetheless, don’t you have a feeling of missing out? Your father signed the Declaration of Independence, and you no longer see Israel as the national home of the Jewish people.

    “The life of the Jewish people is a tragedy. Our people, at a very early stage, proved that it is not a dutiful people and doesn’t know how to sustain a state. So, for most of its time it did not have a national existence, but the existence of a persecuted and hated minority, that lives which lives without a higher organization and without its own government. It may be paying a price, but it withstood it.

    "One of the genes in our national DNA is the ‘Get thee out of thine country’ (Lekh Lekha) gene that began back in the days of our father Abraham. Since the days of the Second Temple, most of the Jews haven’t lived in Israel. They established a magnificent community on the Tigris River and after that moved to Spain, where they created a wonderful culture for a thousand years, and from there they dispersed all over …”

    And then came the pogroms and after that the Holocaust, and many realized that the “Jewish problem” was solvable only in a territorial way.

    “Suddenly people say, ‘We know what needs to be done,’ for everyone, and are prepared to force their ideas on the public. Who put you [in charge]? The moment Zionism called for the Jews to immigrate to Israel, in order to establish here one home for the Jewish people, which will be a sovereign state, a conflict was created. The Zionist idea was to come to a place where there were people, members of another people, members of another religion, completely different.

    "Have you seen anywhere in the world where the majority would agree to give in to a foreign invader, who says, ‘our forefathers were here,’ and demands to enter the land and take control? The conflict was inherent and Zionism denied this, ignored it… as the proportion of Jews to Arabs changed in favor of the Jews, the Arabs realized that they were losing the majority. Who would agree to such a thing?

    “So violent conflict began, the riots of 1920, 1921, 1929, 1936–1939, and war and another war and another war. Many say that we ‘deserve’ the land because the Arabs could have accepted us as we were and then everything would have been alright. But they started the war, so they shouldn’t complain. I see in this whole transformation of the majority [Arab] to a minority and the minority [Jewish] into a majority as immoral.”

    So you claim that your father was also immoral and so are you – your biography intertwined with that of the Zionist Movement and Israel in its seminal period.

    “If Israel is not OK, I’m not OK either, as someone who pays taxes here. For a certain period there was great hope here that something new had been created. I was a part of that. But now, Zionism, from my point of view, has disappeared. All the promises we made disappeared. I am not comfortable with this. Our national agenda is blood, death and violence. This flag files to this day in our country as a vision. Israel lives on the sword and sharpens it. I am completely alienated from this.”

    What went wrong on the way?

    “The Jewish people had two great enemies, Hitler and Stalin, the hangmen of Jewish culture, who emptied and destroyed it – in Poland and the Soviet Union. Those who planned the state were directed first and foremost to the Jewish tribe. Hitler’s Holocaust and Stalin’s spiritual genocide completely changed the structure and the demographic makeup of Israel. Only after it turned out that those who were supposed to come no longer exist, other Jews came. I don’t discount them. From a Jewish perspective they are as Jewish as me and you, but their background is different. They were raised in Muslim countries and came from a background of religions, clans and admiration of the father. People like that then came into Israel, and that changed the situation and to this day is causing problems and upheavals.”

    Would you prefer to see Israel Ashkenazi, secular and liberal, like you are?

    “I’m speaking frankly because I have nothing to hide. I’m 94 years old... The more homogenous society is, the healthier it is. The less so, there are problems. I’m disappointed in the fate of the Jewish people, which divided us into tribes. I’m also disappointed in the character of the state. When I see the prime minister with a kipah on his head, I don’t feel good. This is not the Israel I want to see. How did it happen that this new place, that was to have brought innovations, became the blackest place, controlled by the nationalist ultra-Orthodox? How is it that here of all places, there’s reactionism and zealotry, messianism, the desire to expand and control another people?”

    A trap for the emissary

    Yaakov Sharett was born in 1927 to a well-connected family of the cream of the Yishuv, the Jewish community in Palestine. After him came Yael (the future author Yael Medini), in 1931, and Haim in 1933. He spent his first three years in Tel Aviv and after that, with his father’s career advancement, the family moved to Jerusalem. He studied in Jerusalem with the geographer David Benbenisti, the philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz and the lexicographer Avraham Even Shoshan.

    As a young man, Sharett went to study at Colombia University in the United States and Oxford in the U.K. His expertise was in what was called at the time “Sovietology,” for which he learned fluent Russian, his father’s mother tongue. His uncle, Shaul Avigur, enlisted him in 1960 in a secret unit he had established and led, called Nativ, whose members entered the Soviet Union under the cover of Israeli Embassy staff and helped Jews behind the Iron Curtain.

    Sharett was appointed “first secretary” of the Israeli Embassy in Moscow, and crisscrossed the Soviet Union looking for Jews who showed an interest in Israel and Zionism. His stay there was stopped suddenly after a year, when he was expelled on charges of espionage. One day, while on a visit to Riga, he accepted a letter from a person who presented himself as Jewish and asked him to deliver it to relatives in Israel. This was apparently a trap, because later, as he describes it, “two hulks jumped me, picked me up off the ground, without considering that I had diplomatic immunity.” When he was questioned he was shown the letter that he had hidden in the pocket of his coat, and when they opened it, they found a picture of a missile.

    “Yaakov Sharett expelled from the U.S.S.R.” the newspapers of the day reported. The Soviet news agency Tass reported that Sharett was “caught while spying, touring various parts of the Soviet Union to establish espionage ties and distributing Zionist anti-Soviet illegal literature.

    After his return from Israel he worked for a time in the new Russian department that had been opened in Military Intelligence research. He later retired from intelligence work. “The Russian Aliyah disappointed me greatly,” he says today. “The people that I so much wanted to come here turned out to be right wing and nationalist – the result of years living half-assimilated and needing to hide their origin. Now they turned to the most fanatic and extreme side. I took part in bringing my enemies here. Avigdor Lieberman is a settler. Politically, he is my enemy,” he adds.

    But it’s not the arrival of this or that individual that bothers Sharett. He opposes encouraging people to move to Israel. “Israel is the only country that works to increase its population. Whoever heard of such a thing. That emissaries persuade people to come and live in Israel? There aren’t enough people and traffic jams here?”

    To compromise is not to capitulate

    The next station in Sharett’s life was journalism. He wrote and edited for the Hebrew daily Ma’ariv for two decades, between 1963 and 1983. In the early 1970s he wrote for Ma’ariv from Tehran, where he moved following his wife, a choreographer and dancer who taught dance there. In the early 1980s he also wrote a column called “Man from Mars” in the weekly anti-establishment magazine Haolam Hazeh, where he expressed his critical look at Israelis, as if he were from another planet.

    Sharett also wrote, edited and translated books. In 1988 his book “The State of Israel of the Altneuland house has passed away” the cover shows a death notice in Hebrew. Sharett wrote there that is was “a desperate cry of the moment after the last moment and warms of “an unprecedented existential crisis beyond the possibility of overcoming or preventing it.”

    Other books he translated, “Silent Spring” and “The End of Nature” dealt with a crisis of another kind – the climate crisis, years before the issue appeared on the Israeli agenda.

    Sharett celebrated his 94th birthday in July. “I’m an old man, aware of my age, and I know my years are numbered. I’m not afraid of death itself, but I am afraid of form death will take,” he says in conclusion, and reveals that he has made the decision to take his own life “if I reach the point where my life no longer justifies itself and that I’m a dead man walking, who has no meaning or contribution, but is only a burden on others and his family.” He has already informed his family of his decision. He will contribute his body to science. “I don’t need a grave. I don’t go to the graves of my family. I don’t think that a person’s memory, his soul, is associated with his bones or the place he is buried. I don’t want to take up space in a tiny country like ours. There’s no point at all. In any case, in one or two generations the headstones will be forgotten and abandoned. “

    But before all this happens, he still wants the time to write his autobiography, some of whose chapter headings he revealed in this article. He’s already chosen the name for the book: “Forced Collaborator.”

  • How a Meteor May Have Destroyed Ancient City and Inspired Biblical Tale of Sodom

    Researchers have discovered evidence that an ancient city in the Jordan Valley could have been destroyed when a meteor or space rock exploded above it around 3,600 years ago.

    Tall el-Hammam is believed to be the inspiration for the Biblical city of Sodom, meaning that the space rock’s explosion or “airburst” could be behind the story of the destruction of this city in the Old Testament.

    The explosion over Tall el-Hammam was great enough to level the ancient city, flattening its palace, mudbrick structures, and the wall that ringed the city, a paper published in Nature Scientific Reports said.

    The study compares the airburst that occurred around 1650 BCE to the Tunguska Event which occurred in 1908 when a 183-to-196-foot meteor entered the Earth’s atmosphere above Eastern Siberia at around 33,500 miles per hour and exploded.

    The resultant airburst released around 12 megatons of energy, equivalent to around 1,000 times the energy of the atomic bomb that devastated Hiroshima.

    What is more, the authors including professor emeritus of earth science at UC Santa Barbara, James Kennett, believe that this ancient airburst could have been even more powerful than the one behind the Tunguska Event.

    “There’s evidence of a large cosmic airburst, close to this city called Tall el-Hammam,” Kennett said in a press release. “It’s an incredibly culturally important area. Much of where the early cultural complexity of humans developed is in this general area.”
    Newsweek subscription offers >

    The site has been a popular one for archaeologists for this reason but amongst the layers that give evidence for settlements all the way from the Copper Age (5000 to 3300 BCE) to the Bronze Age (3300 to 1200 BCE), there is a strange 1.5-meter interval.

    Within this interval, archeologists have discovered materials that are commonly associated with destruction arising from war or from earthquakes. This includes pottery shards melted to glass, bubbling mudbrick, and even melted building materials.

    All of this indicates temperatures far above anything that could be artificially generated at the time. “We saw evidence for temperatures greater than 2,000 degrees Celsius,” said Kennett.

    Amongst the charred materials and destroyed structures were the skeletal remains of humans that were, according to the paper, fragmented.

    Kennett and his team recognized what the charred and melted materials and human remains with “extreme disarticulation and skeletal fragmentation” represented as they were also involved with piecing together an investigation of a similar airburst that happened 12,800 years ago.

    Further soil analysis revealed small spheres of iron and silica as well as melted metals. Kennett added that the main line of evidence of an airburst uncovered by his team was a material called shocked quartz.

    “These are sand grains containing cracks that form only under very high pressure,” the researcher said. “We have shocked quartz from this layer, and that means there were incredible pressures involved to shock the quartz crystals—quartz is one of the hardest minerals; it’s very hard to shock.”

    The area also has a high level of salt in layers laid down at the time of the proposed airburst, which the authors suggest could have been thrown up by the blast. Kennett suggests this could also be why the Dead Sea is so rich in salt.

    Salt connects the fate of Tell el-Hamman back to the biblical tale of Sodom. As Lot and his family fled the city, his wife turns back to view the destruction and is punished by God who turns her into a pillar of salt.

    The tale also describes fire and sulfur and rocks raining from the skies with Sodom flattened, its agriculture razed, and its inhabitants killed.

    Tell el-Hamman, located northeast of the Dead Sea and one of the regions most populated areas during the Bronze Age with a population 10 times that of Jerusalem, has been linked with the city of Sodom for many years.

    In 2015, professor of Biblical studies and apologetics at Trinity Southwest University, Dr. Steven Collins, told website Popular Archaeology that Tall el-Hammam meets “every criterion” of Sodom.

    The description of the meteor’s airburst event certainly sounds like the tale of Biblical destruction, but Kennett is cautious.

    “All the observations stated in Genesis are consistent with a cosmic airburst, but there’s no scientific proof that this destroyed city is indeed the Sodom of the Old Testament,” says the researcher.

    • Sodome et Gomorrhe, du mythe à la réalité | National Geographic

      L’emplacement de Sodome enfin découvert ?

      Un tel phénomène aurait-il pu réellement se produire ? Steven Collins, professeur d’études bibliques de l’Université de Trinity Southwest, et son équipe, étudient depuis une vingtaine d’années le site de Tall El-Hammam où aurait été retrouvée Sodome, dans la vallée du Jourdain.

      Ils avancent une hypothèse. Une météorite serait à l’origine de cette pluie que l’on dépeint dans les textes bibliques. Les archéologues ont en effet constaté sur les vestiges de cette région des signes de chaleur extrême en surface, sur des poteries. Certaines indications laissent également penser qu’un apport de saumure massif issue de la mer Morte aurait détruit terres agricoles et récoltes. L’explosion dans l’atmosphère d’un corps céleste produisant une onde de choc thermique et soufflant une partie de l’eau de la mer Morte reste à ce jour l’explication la plus pertinente de ce passage de la Bible, selon les scientifiques.

      Il est toujours délicat de trouver des preuves géographiques en se basant sur les seules informations données par des textes anciens. Il serait légitime de douter du lien trouvé entre les vestiges retrouvés et l’emplacement réel de la ville de Sodome.

      Selon les textes, Sodome était en effet décrite comme étant la plus grande cité du Kikkar, une plaine fertile mentionnée dans la Bible. Géographiquement, l’hypothèse du site de Tall El-Hammam comme ruines de Sodome se tient et en termes de superficie également. Ces vestiges découverts par les archéologues appartiennent à une immense cité de l’âge de bronze qui, comparée avec les villes avoisinantes, serait dix fois plus étendue.

      Pour Steven Collins, le site de Tall El-Hamman réunit tous les critères de la ville de Sodome telle qu’elle est décrite dans la Bible.❞

  • C’est pour bientôt, et bientôt un peu de matos sur visionscarto

    Ceci est l’annonce de la sortie d’un ouvrage qui parle de cartographie radicale aux éditions La Découverte avec @nepthys et @reka.

    En librairie le 14 octobre.


    Ce livre est né de la rencontre entre une historienne et un géographe. La spécialiste du système de représentation statistique Isotype développé par Otto Neurath décortique le fonctionnement de la carte en tant qu’image et discours sur le monde. Le géographe, s’appuyant sur quelques dizaines d’années de recherche et de pratique cartographique (donc sémiologique et géométrique), revient sur le pouvoir de la carte, autant oppressive et aliénante que résistante et combattante, et raconte comment elle révèle l’invisible.

    À la croisée de ces analyses, l’objet carte se fait tour à tour instrument, outil ou arme pour faire naître la possibilité de la carte radicale et critique, mais aussi expérimentale. L’ouvrage cherche à en définir les contours.

    Cette exploration, toute en images, promène lectrices et lecteurs dans le monde multiforme des cartes, à la découverte de cet art de la carte qui met en dialogue science et politique, oscillant sans cesse entre le réel et l’imaginaire.

    Plutôt qu’un newsmagazine, ce sera « un libelle, un manifeste ». Un arsenal de papier proposant « un armement intellectuel, journalistique, pour lutter contre la progression de l’obscurantisme ». Lorsque Christophe Barbier présente la publication qu’il s’apprête à diriger, le verbe est haut, le vocabulaire, choisi. « Dès qu’on prononce le mot centrisme, ça fait mou, tiède. Alors qu’on veut faire quelque chose de très puissant, de très offensif », expose l’éditorialiste de BFM-TV, ancien directeur de la rédaction de L’Express.

    Annoncé de longue date, le projet de magazine politique voulu par le financier tchèque Daniel Kretinsky, fondateur du groupe de presse Czech Media Invest (CMI) et actionnaire indirect du Monde, entre dans sa dernière ligne droite. Nommé Franc-tireur, le titre sera porté sur les fonts baptismaux numériques le 6 octobre. Qu’importe le combat que livre M. Kretinsky aux GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon) : un « événement Facebook » lancera une souscription auprès de membres fondateurs, ainsi qu’une campagne de préabonnements (le budget alloué par CMI reste confidentiel).

    Un temps pressentie à la direction du titre, l’essayiste Caroline Fourest, membre du conseil de surveillance du groupe de presse, se contentera du rôle de conseillère éditoriale. Elle aura « une posture de muse », euphémise M. Barbier, qui pilote le projet aux côtés du journaliste Eric Decouty, passé par Le Parisien, Le Figaro, Libération ou encore Marianne. L’arrivée en kiosques de cette publication de huit pages est prévue pour la première quinzaine de novembre.
    « Enquêtes au long cours » et « tribunes à charge »

    La polémique qu’avait déclenchée le philosophe Raphaël Enthoven début juin, lorsqu’il avait affirmé qu’il préférerait voter pour Marine Le Pen plutôt que pour Jean-Luc Mélenchon en cas de duel au second tour de l’élection présidentielle d’avril 2022 (une position peu compatible avec la ligne « anti-extrêmes » du titre), ne l’empêchera pas d’assurer chaque semaine un éditorial à la « une ».

    « Franc-tireur » assurera « une présence quotidienne sur les réseaux sociaux », sous forme écrite ou en format vidéo. Le prix de vente devrait être fixé autour de 2 euros

    Outre des « enquêtes au long cours » fournies par des journalistes free-lance, la publication fera la part belle à « des tribunes à charge ». Au nombre des plumes attendues figurent celles de l’ancien secrétaire général de Force Ouvrière Jean-Claude Mailly, de l’actrice et juriste Rachel Khan (très critique envers la pensée décoloniale), de l’économiste Philippe Aghion (qui avait apporté son soutien à Emmanuel Macron en 2017), du fondateur de l’Observatoire du conspirationnisme Rudy Reichstadt, et de l’écrivain (elle tient au masculin) Abnousse Shalmani, entre autres.

    « Nous serons contre tout ce qui menace l’universalisme républicain », scande Christophe Barbier. Il s’agit de « ne pas laisser aux populistes le monopole de l’émotion, de la révolte », corrobore Denis Olivennes, patron de Libération et membre du conseil d’administration de CMI (Marianne, Elle, Télé 7 jours…), revendiquant sa part dans l’avènement de ce journal « passionnément raisonnable ». Voire relativement conservateur, pointent certains. Franc-tireur – qui se veut « anti-Zemmour, anti-extrême droite, anti-extrême gauche, anti-antivax, anti-complotistes, anti-cancel culture… », selon l’énumération non exhaustive de M. Barbier – assurera « une présence quotidienne sur les réseaux sociaux », sous forme écrite ou en format vidéo. Le prix de vente devrait être fixé autour de 2 euros.

      Sœur Caroline en muse contre l’obscurantisme, non de dieu, frère Philippe ne devrait pas tarder à rejoindre cette équipe de franc-tireurs de l’éditocratie.

  • Reducing The Need For Pseudo-Elements — Smashing Magazine

    For years, pseudo-elements have faithfully helped front-end developers implement creative designs. While they still have an important place, we can now leave #pseudo-elements behind in some scenarios, thanks to newer #CSS properties. Pseudo-elements still have a place. This article is not “never use pseudo-elements” but rather “we no longer have to use pseudo-elements as much”. We can style a number of popular user interface elements without the need for pseudo-elements. By relying less on pseudo-elements, we can write less CSS, eliminate nested elements, ignore stacking context issues, and forget about positioning.

  • Ah ben merde, j’ai googlé Stuart Gordon, et bim, il est mort (24 mars 2020). Zut zut zut, comme tout geek qui se respecte, j’avais nombre de ses films dans mes plaisirs coupables.

    De mémoire, j’ai vu Re-Animator, From Beyond, Robot Jox, Fortress, Space Truckers, Dagon. Et même que j’en ai vu plusieurs au cinéma sur grand écran (mais oui mais oui). Et curieusement je n’ai encore jamais vu Edmond (2005), dont la sagesse collective considère que c’est un très bon film.
