Aid and incentives to self sufficiency and job seeking

"An important source of waste and a challenging problem is in creating a mutual dependence of the poor and the aid organization for continuance. The conditions of escape make aid lost, larger than income potentially earned so that you are made worse off if you take a low-paying job. Yet that job may lad to better ones with on-the-job training and experience. Job markets are dynamic, poverty programs are static."

Innovation and capital

And to take up the image of dynamics in economics, capital from wherever it comes is indispensable for innovation because innovation burns cash but also time. And the first to come is the inventor.

Les Roms ont émigré depuis l'Inde il y a mille ans...

The phylogeography of Y-chromosome haplogroup h1a1a-m82 reveals the likely Indian origin of the European Romani populations.


Linguistic and genetic studies on Roma populations inhabited in Europe have unequivocally traced these populations to the Indian subcontinent. However, the exact parental population group and time of the out-of-India dispersal have remained disputed. In the absence of archaeological records and with only scanty historical documentation of the Roma, comparative linguistic studies were the first to identify their Indian origin. Recently, molecular studies on the basis of disease-causing mutations and haploid DNA markers (i.e. mtDNA and Y-chromosome) supported the linguistic view. The presence of Indian-specific Y-chromosome haplogroup H1a1a-M82 and mtDNA haplogroups M5a1, M18 and M35b among Roma has corroborated that their South Asian origins and later admixture with Near Eastern and European populations. However, previous studies have left unanswered questions about the exact parental population groups in South Asia. Here we present a detailed phylogeographical study of Y-chromosomal haplogroup H1a1a-M82 in a data set of more than 10,000 global samples to discern a more precise ancestral source of European Romani populations. The phylogeographical patterns and diversity estimates indicate an early origin of this haplogroup in the Indian subcontinent and its further expansion to other regions. Tellingly, the short tandem repeat (STR) based network of H1a1a-M82 lineages displayed the closest connection of Romani haplotypes with the traditional scheduled caste and scheduled tribe population groups of northwestern India.


The Totalitarianism of the Environmentalists

Late last year, I gave a talk about human progress to an audience of college students in Ottawa, Canada. I went through the usual multitude of indicators – rising life expectancy, literacy, and per capita incomes; declining infant mortality, malnutrition, and cancer death rates – to show that the world was becoming a much better place for an ever-growing share of its population.

It seemed to me that the audience was genuinely delighted to hear some good news for a change. I had won them over to the cause of rational optimism. And then someone in the audience asked about climate change and I blew it.

Every aspect of human existence would be under government interference, all in the name of environmentalism.

While acknowledging that the available data suggests a “lukewarming” trend in global temperatures, I cautioned against excessive alarmism. Available resources, I said, should be spent on adaptation to climate change, not on preventing changes in global temperature – a task that I, along with many others, consider to be both ruinously expensive and, largely, futile.

The audience was at first shocked – I reckon they considered me a rational and data-savvy academic up to that point – and then became angry and, during a breakout session, hostile. I even noticed one of the students scratching out five, the highest mark a speaker could get on an evaluation form, and replacing it with one. I suppose I should be glad he did not mark me down to zero.

My Ottawa audience was in no way exceptional. Very often, when speaking to audiences in Europe and North America about the improving state of the world, people acknowledge the positive trends, but worry that, as Matt Ridley puts it, “this happy interlude [in human history will come] to a terrible end.”

Of course, apocalyptic writings are as old as humanity itself. The Bible, for example, contains the story of the Great Flood, in which God “destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air.” The Akkadian poem of Gilgamesh similarly contains a myth of angry gods flooding the Earth, while an apocalyptic deluge plays a prominent part in the Hindu Dharmasastra.

And then there is Al Gore. In his 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth, Gore warns that “if Greenland broke up and melted, or if half of Greenland and half of West Antarctica broke up and melted, this is what would happen to the sea level in Florida,” before an animation shows much of the state underwater. Gore also shows animations of San Francisco, Holland, Beijing, Shanghai, Calcutta, and Manhattan drowning. “But this is what would happen to Manhattan, they can measure this precisely,” Gore says as he shows much of the city underwater.

Thinking Environmentalist Laws Through

It is possible, I suppose, that our eschatological obsessions are innate. The latest research suggests that our species, Homo Sapiens Sapiens, is 300,000 years old. For most of our existence, life was, to quote Thomas Hobbes, “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Our life expectancy was between 25 years and 30 years, and our incomes were stuck at a subsistence level for millennia. Conversely, our experience with relative abundance is, at most, two centuries old. That amounts to 0.07 percent of our time on Earth. Is there any wonder that we are prone to be pessimistic?

That said, I wonder how many global warming enthusiasts have thought through the full implications of their (in my view overblown) fears of a looming apocalypse. If it is true that global warming threatens the very survival of life on Earth, then all other considerations must, by necessity, be secondary to preventing global warming from happening.

Environmentalism, like all -isms, can become totalitarian.

That includes, first and foremost, the reproductive rights of women. Some global warming fearmongers have been good enough to acknowledge as much. Bill Nye, a progressive TV personality, wondered if we should “have policies that penalize people for having extra kids.”

Then there is travel and nutrition. Is it really so difficult to imagine a future in which each of us is issued with a carbon credit at the start of each year, limiting what kind of food we eat (locally grown potatoes will be fine, but Alaskan salmon will be verboten) and how far we can travel (visiting our in-laws in Ohio once a year will be permitted, but not Paris)? In fact, it is almost impossible to imagine a single aspect of human existence that would be free from government interference – all in the name of saving the environment.

These ideas might sound nutty, but they are slowly gaining ground. Just last week, a study came out estimating the environmental benefits of “having one fewer child (an average for developed countries of 58.6 tonnes CO2-equivalent (tCO2e) emission reductions per year), living car-free (2.4 tCO2e saved per year), avoiding air travel (1.6 tCO2e saved per roundtrip transatlantic flight), and eating a plant-based diet (0.8 tCO2e saved per year).”

And then there is Travis N. Rieder, a research scholar at Johns Hopkins’ Berman Institute of Bioethics, who says that “maybe we should protect our kids by not having them.” He wants tax penalties to punish new parents in rich countries. The proposed tax penalty would become harsher with each additional child.

And that brings me to my final point. Since the fall of communism, global warming has been, without question, the most potent weapon in the hands of those who wish to control the behavior of their fellow human beings. Lukewarmists like me do not caution against visions of an environmental apocalypse out of some perverse hatred of nature. On the contrary, concern for the environment is laudable and, I happen to believe, nearly universal. But environmentalism, like all –isms, can become totalitarian. It is for that reason that, when it comes to our environmental policies, we ought to tread very carefully.

Quotes: Milton Friedman

“One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.” 
― Milton Friedman

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” 
― Milton Friedman

“Well first of all, tell me: Is there some society you know that doesn’t run on greed? You think Russia doesn’t run on greed? You think China doesn’t run on greed? What is greed? Of course, none of us are greedy, it’s only the other fellow who’s greedy. The world runs on individuals pursuing their separate interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way. In the only cases in which the masses have escaped from the kind of grinding poverty you’re talking about, the only cases in recorded history, are where they have had capitalism and largely free trade. If you want to know where the masses are worse off, worst off, it’s exactly in the kinds of societies that depart from that. So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear, that there is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by the free-enterprise system.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Now here's somebody who wants to smoke a marijuana cigarette. If he's caught, he goes to jail. Now is that moral? Is that proper? I think it's absolutely disgraceful that our government, supposed to be our government, should be in the position of converting people who are not harming others into criminals, of destroying their lives, putting them in jail. That's the issue to me. The economic issue comes in only for explaining why it has those effects. But the economic reasons are not the reasons” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“I am favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it's possible.” 
― Milton Friedman 
“When unions get higher wages for their members by restricting entry into an occupation, those higher wages are at the expense of other workers who find their opportunities reduced. When government pays its employees higher wages, those higher wages are at the expense of the taxpayer. But when workers get higher wages and better working conditions through the free market, when they get raises by firm competing with one another for the best workers, by workers competing with one another for the best jobs, those higher wages are at nobody's expense. They can only come from higher productivity, greater capital investment, more widely diffused skills. The whole pie is bigger - there's more for the worker, but there's also more for the employer, the investor, the consumer, and even the tax collector. 

That's the way the free market system distributes the fruits of economic progress among all people. That's the secret of the enormous improvements in the conditions of the working person over the past two centuries.” 
― Milton Friedman, Free to Choose: A Personal Statement 
“Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Governments never learn. Only people learn.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“In a much quoted passage in his inaugural address, President Kennedy said, "Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country." It is a striking sign of the temper of our times that the controversy about this passage centered on its origin and not on its content. Neither half of the statement expresses a relation between the citizen and his government that is worthy of the ideals of free men in a free society. The paternalistic "what your country can do for you" implies that government is the patron, the citizen the ward, a view that is at odds with the free man's belief in his own responsibility for his own destiny. The organismic, "what you can do for your country" implies that government is the master or the deity, the citizen, the servant or the votary. To the free man, the country is the collection of individuals who compose it, not something over and above them. He is proud of a common heritage and loyal to common traditions. But he regards government as a means, an instrumentality, neither a grantor of favors and gifts, nor a master or god to be blindly worshiped and served. He recognizes no national goal except as it is the consensus of the goals that the citizens severally serve. He recognizes no national purpose except as it is the consensus of the purposes for which the citizens severally strive.” 
― Milton Friedman, Capitalism and Freedom 

“See, if you look at the drug war from a purely economic point of view, the role of the government is to protect the drug cartel. That's literally true.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“The society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither. The society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a great measure of both” 
― Milton Friedman 

“A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes the politically inevitable.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Most of the energy of political work is devoted to correcting the effects of mismanagement of government.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Society doesn't have values. People have values.” 
― Milton Friedman 
tags: people, society 

“The Great Depression, like most other periods of severe unemployment, was produced by government mismanagement rather than by any inherent instability of the private economy.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“There is one and only one social responsibility of business–to use it resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Education spending will be most effective if it relies on parental choice & private initiative -- the building blocks of success throughout our society.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“Even the most ardent environmentalist doesn't really want to stop pollution. If he thinks about it, and doesn't just talk about it, he wants to have the right amount of pollution. We can't really afford to eliminate it - not without abandoning all the benefits of technology that we not only enjoy but on which we depend.” 
― Milton Friedman, There's No Such Thing as a Free Lunch 

“I think that nothing is so important for freedom as recognizing in the law each individual’s natural right to property, and giving individuals a sense that they own something that they’re responsible for, that they have control over, and that they can dispose of.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“He moves fastest who moves alone.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“For example, the supporters of tariffs treat it as self-evident that the creation of jobs is a desirable end, in and of itself, regardless of what the persons employed do. That is clearly wrong. If all we want are jobs, we can create any number--for example, have people dig holes and then fill them up again, or perform other useless tasks. Work is sometimes its own reward. Mostly, however, it is the price we pay to get the things we want. Our real objective is not just jobs but productive jobs--jobs that will mean more goods and services to consume.” 
― Milton Friedman, Free to Choose: A Personal Statement 

“Our minds tell us, and history confirms, that the great threat to freedom is the concentration of power. Government is necessary to preserve our freedom, it is an instrument through which we can exercise our freedom; yet by concentrating power in political hands, it is also a threat to freedom. Even though the men who wield this power initially be of good will and even though they be not corrupted by the power they exercise, the power will both attract and form men of a different stamp.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“The key insight of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations is misleadingly simple: if an exchange between two parties is voluntary, it will not take place unless both believe they will benefit from it. Most economic fallacies derive from the neglect of this simple insight, from the tendency to assume that there is a fixed pie, that one party can gain only at the expense of another.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“This plea comes from the bottom of my heart. Every friend of freedom, and I know you are one, must be as revolted as I am by the prospect of turning the United States into an armed camp, by the vision of jails filled with casual drug users and of an army of enforcers empowered to invade the liberty of citizens on slight evidence. A country in which shooting down unidentified planes "on suspicion" can be seriously considered as a drug-war tactic is not the kind of United States that either you or I want to hand on to future generations.” 
― Milton Friedman 

“We do not influence the course of events by persuading people that we are right when we make what they regard as radical proposals. Rather, we exert influence by keeping options available when something has to be done at a time of crisis.” 
― Milton Friedman

L'UE annonce le déblocage de 209 millions d'euros visant "à secourir les réfugiés présents en Grèce", les citoyens Grecs nageant comme chacun sait dans l'opulence. 

Et on apprend que la France, qui n'a plus les moyens d'acheter des canadairs et des véhicules à ses policiers, vient de débloquer 2,1 milliards d'euros... pour la construction du métro d'Abidjan.

France is a long time socialist country

"Le problème de la France d'aujourd'hui, c'est qu'elle conserve le modèle qu'elle a adopté à la Libération. Prenez le pacte de responsabilité mis au point par le gouvernement actuel. Il contient toujours cette idée que l'État peut et doit contrôler la création d'emplois. C'est une hérésie ! Après le double traumatisme de la guerre et de la défaite, notre pays s'est retrouvé plus à gauche qu'il ne l'était dans sa structure profonde. L'OPA des communistes sur la Résistance, qu'ils n'avaient pourtant rejointe que tardivement, a encore précipité le mouvement. Tout cela a profondément marqué notre fonctionnement politique, économique et social. Je me souviens qu'à l'Éna nos professeurs célébraient souvent avec admiration les "succès" de l'économie soviétique. Il y avait même des cours sur les plans quinquennaux en Russie soviétique !

Les chantiers de l'Atlantique et la France

La France a été vendue d'abord aux fonds de pension et aux fonds souverains par les politiques puisque depuis 1974 il n'y a pas de budget en équilibre et nous avons émis 2200 milliards d'OAT. À mon avis vous aimeriez que l'on passe rapidement là-dessus. C'est la première vente à la découpe.

La France a ensuite été vendue aux autres pays par nos politiques parce que nous avons fait fuir avec une fiscalité extraordinaire notamment celle de l'ISF qui est illégitime puisque c'est une fiscalité après la fiscalité, les individus susceptibles d'investir. Dans le même temps nous avons offert des cadeaux fiscaux au Qatar pour acheter notre immobilier. 

Là il ne s'agit pas de la France il s'agit d'une entreprise qui n'appartient pas à l'État et qui doit vivre sa vie d'entreprise.

Le nouveau révisionnisme: le prix Nobel et les juifs


Si on considère les chiffres :21,5% pour les Juifs et 6,6% pour les non juifs il y a comme disent les auteurs un biais. En toute logique il faut le corriger:

Pour le jury du prix Nobel :
-mettre un handicap pour les Nobelisables juifs
- ou demander aux candidats juifs de ne pas se présenter pour un période de temps déterminée. II faut calculer quelle durée pour rattraper le décalage: peut -etre un
siècle ou plus pour équilibrer entre la population Juive et la population mondiale.
Pour les savants juifs:
-ne pas se présenter au prix Nobel
-ou ne pas faire de recherche qui puisse le mériter ou d'arrêter leurs recherches si ils approchent de la récompense.
-peut-etre même demander à ce que les juifs ne fassent plus de recherche, n'aillent plus dans les universites; Cela s'est déjà fait...
Voilà quelques réflexions pour préparer peut-être un commentaire à cet article.
"le ventre est encore fécond d'où peut naître la bête ignoble"

Un autre commentaire

Cet article est inspiré par l'égalitarisme forcené de notre gouvernement! 
Il y aurait beaucoup à dire sur le "Jewish bias"... Ce que Le Monde n'aborde pas c'est l'explication de l'excellence juive. Ou plutôt les facteurs d'explication rationnelle pour lesquels on dispose de travaux. 
Car en effet le sujet essentiel est de tirer l'humanité vers le haut! Et les preuves que l'excellence juive y contribue abondent.
L’excellence juive puise ses sources dans l'histoire y compris les facteurs ethniques et génétiques nés de l'ostracisation (pour ne pas dire plus) professionnelle et des comportements de défense qui durèrent plusieurs siècles en Europe mais aussi dans la culture et la religion juive millénaires. C'est bien sur beaucoup plus complexe que des anecdotes réductionnistes sur la douceur du miel. Cette complexité et ses liens avec l'histoire européenne sont une affaire de civilisation.
Certes ce n'est pas très prisé par le politiquement correct de parler civilisation mais les faits nous y conduisent. En ignorant les différences civilisationnelles on ne peut que devenir jaloux, invoquer des biais, relancer des complots et fermer les yeux sur les causes du déclin des uns et de la réussite des autres.
D'une certaine façon on assiste aussi à des réactions de ce type avec les asiatiques qui trustent les premières places à l'école...
Il faut cependant rappeler que les trois grands totalitarismes de l'histoire se rassemblent sur ce point: le juif serait nuisible et les gentils seraient abusés par des juifs conquérants et sournois. En reprenant ce thème hautement significatif les auteurs signent leur pamphlet de haine et quand on observe nos sociétés européennes aujourd'hui on peut partager le sentiment évoqué dans votre commentaire, celui de la résurgence de cette haine dans le déclin.

Why people prefer unequal societies?

Why people prefer unequal societies Christina Starmans*, Mark Sheskin and Paul Bloom

There is immense concern about economic inequality, both among the scholarly community and in the general public, and many insist that equality is an important social goal. However, when people are asked about the ideal distribution of wealth in their country, they actually prefer unequal societies. We suggest that these two phenomena can be reconciled by noticing that, despite appearances to the contrary, there is no evidence that people are bothered by economic inequality itself. Rather, they are bothered by something that is often confounded with inequality: economic unfairness. Drawing upon laboratory studies, cross-cultural research, and experiments with babies and young children, we argue that humans naturally favour fair distributions, not equal ones, and that when fairness and equality clash, people prefer fair inequality over unfair equality. Both psychological research and decisions by policymakers would benefit from more clearly distinguishing inequality from unfairness.

You are right. 
When it comes to the issue of accelerating growth by trade there are limits inside those countries which are difficult to overpass. 
But one of the failure of foreign aid toward developed countries is that politicians like to play the role of donors and not of builders. And local politicians prefer cash instead of paths to growth.

Hebron 1929 raconté par le reporter  Albert Londres

Hébron est en Judée, c’est-à-dire dans les pierres. Dix-huit mille Arabes, mille Juifs, mille vieux Juifs non tous âgés, mais tous vieux : Juifs de l’autre temps, papillotes et caftans !

On est dans Hébron. Rien de plus oriental à offrir au voyageur. Des rues pour drames cinématographiques. Très bien ! Mais tout cela est arabe. Où est le ghetto ? Vous regardez et ne le voyez pas. On vous a dit cependant qu’il était ici, dans ce bazar couvert, entre ce carrefour et cette basse mosquée. Pas de ghetto ! Aucun Juif !

Vous retournez aux renseignements. Alors, on vous donne un guide. Le guide vous ramène dans le bazar couvert et vous arrête entre l’échoppe d’un marchand de babouches et un vendeur d’agneaux écorchés. Là, dans le mur, un trou : c’est une porte, la porte du ghetto.

Vous la franchissez courbé en deux ; vous vous redressez, et alors, si jusqu’ici vous n’aviez rien vu, vous voyez maintenant quelque chose. Il ne suffit pas de voir, il faut croire aussi. Ce qui s’offre aux regards est incroyable. Ce ghetto est une montagne de maisons, une vraie montagne avec ses crêtes, ses cols, ses ravins, une petite montagne mal fichue, hargneuse, sans un centimètre carré de terre : toute couverte de maisons, toute ! Pour atteindre le rez-de-chaussée de la deuxième bicoque, il faut passer par le toit de la première. Du toit de la seconde, vous voici de plain-pied dans la troisième. Ainsi pour chacune. Où sont les rues ? Au fait, où sont-elles ? Pas de rues ! Pourtant, je marche et je ne marche pas toujours sur les toits ! Non ! Mais je grimpe des escaliers, j’emprunte un couloir, je me perds dans des labyrinthes. Croyant déboucher sur une place, je me trouve dans une chambre à coucher. Un Juif de grande taille, étendu sur le seuil de sa maison, aurait la tête chez lui, les pieds chez le voisin… un voisin à qui il voudrait du mal, un bras ailleurs et l’autre dans la synagogue ! Trois synagogues communiquant entre elles couronnent le fol État. Le soleil n’a rien de plus extravagant à chauffer sur toute la surface de la terre !

Là vivent mille Hébreux.

Non de ceux qui déployèrent le drapeau au mur des Lamentations ; non mille gaillards de Tel-Aviv ; non plus ces colons durs et décidés de la plaine de Jesraël. Mille Hébreux qui n’étaient point venus en Palestine dans un bateau, mais dans un berceau, mille Juifs éternels. Une famille, une seule, était arrivée récemment de Lithuanie pour vivre en sainteté et non en conquérante sur la terre des ancêtres. Tragique famille !

Amis des Arabes ? Presque. En tous cas, point ennemis. Se connaissant tous, même par leurs noms, se saluant depuis dix ans, depuis toujours. L’Hébron juif était célèbre, non par ses sentiments nationaux, mais par son école talmudique.

Or les Arabes n’attaquèrent pas Tel-Aviv, mais Hébron… mais Safed. Je n’ignore pas que Ragheb bey El Nashashibi, franc comme l’épée, s’excuse en disant : « À la guerre comme à la guerre. On ne tue pas ce qu’on veut, mais ce qu’on trouve. La prochaine fois, tous y passeront, jeunes comme vieux. » Nous faisons expressément remarquer à Ragheb bey que nous ne le mettons pas au défi de tenir sa parole. Il en serait fort capable. Mais l’avenir, aujourd’hui, n’est pas notre affaire.

Le 23 août, le jour du grand mufti, deux étudiants talmudistes sont égorgés. Ils ne faisaient pas de discours politiques, ils cherchaient le Sinaï du regard, dans l’espoir d’y découvrir l’ombre de Dieu !

Le lendemain, dès le matin, des Arabes marquent leur inquiétude sur le sort des Juifs. Tous les Arabes ne font pas partie des fanatiques. La virginité d’esprit n’est heureusement pas générale en terre d’Islam.

– Sauvez-vous ! disent-ils aux Juifs.

Quelques-uns offrent aux futures victimes l’hospitalité de leur toit. L’un d’eux, même, ami d’un rabbin, marche toute la nuit et vient se planter devant la maison de son protégé. Il en défend l’entrée aux fous de sa race.


Une cinquantaine de Juifs et de Juives s’étaient réfugiés, hors du ghetto, à la Banque anglo-palestinienne, dirigée par l’un des leurs, le fils du rabbin Slonin. Ils étaient dans une pièce. Les Arabes, les soldats du grand mufti, ne tardèrent pas à les renifler. C’était le samedi 24, à neuf heures du matin. Ayant fait sauter la porte de la banque… Mais voici en deux mots : ils coupèrent des mains, ils coupèrent des doigts, ils maintinrent des têtes au-dessus d’un réchaud, ils pratiquèrent l’énucléation des yeux. Un rabbin, immobile, recommandait à Dieu ses Juifs : on le scalpa. On emporta la cervelle. Sur les genoux de Mme Sokolov, on assit tour à tour six étudiants de la Yeschiba et, elle vivante, on les égorgea. On mutila les hommes. Les filles de treize ans, les mères et les grand-mères, on les bouscula dans le sang et on les viola en chœur.

Mme X… est à l’hôpital de Jérusalem. On a tué son mari à ses pieds, puis saigné son enfant dans ses bras. « Toi, tu resteras vivante… » lui répétaient ces hommes du vingtième siècle !

Aujourd’hui, elle regardait par la fenêtre, d’un regard fixe et sans larme !

Le rabbin Slonin, si noir, si Vélasquez, est là aussi. Il parle :

– Ils ont tué mes deux fils, ma femme, mon beau-père, ma belle-mère.

Ce rabbin dit cela naturellement, d’une voix de greffier lisant un rapport.

Mais il va pleurer :

– En 1492, ajoute-t-il, les Juifs chassés d’Espagne avaient apporté un rouleau de la Loi à Hébron, un saint rouleau, une divine thora. Les Arabes ont brûlé ma thora.

Et le rabbin Slonin essuie deux larmes sur ses joues d’acier bruni.

Vingt-trois cadavres dans la pièce de la banque. Le sang recouvre encore le carrelage comme d’une gelée assez épaisse.

Et vous n’avez nulle idée de la grâce, de la jeunesse, de la douceur, du charme et du teint clair du grand mufti…

Ancienne formule : lactose, amidon de maïs, gélatine, croscarmellose de sodium, stéarate de magnésium
Nouvelle formule : mannitol, amidon de maïs, gélatine, croscarmellose de sodium, stéarate de magnésium, acide citrique



It is not obvious that those in the upper range of the confidence interval with AF are in the same upper range with the NF.

So it is wise to retest your TSH!

Hôtel hospitalier

Le PLFSS prévoit l'expérimentation durant trois ans d'"hôtels hospitaliers" à proximité d'hôpitaux; ces structures doivent servir de sas avec le domicile pour certains patients. Ce "dispositif innovant" qui existe déjà à Toulouse (Maison d'accueil Le Laurier Rose) et Paris (Ambulotel de l'Hôtel-Dieu) doit permettre de "réduire un certain nombre d'hospitalisations inutiles", selon Olivier Veran, député de l'Isère et ancien professeur au service de neurologie au CHU de Grenoble.

Le gain potentiel est considérable dans la mesure où, selon lui, une nuitée dans un tel "hôtel hospitalier" coûte 60 euros contre 1500 pour une journée d'hospitalisation.

Le moment est venu

« ... Que les Français, en grande majorité aient, par referendum, confirmé, approuvé l'abandon de l'Algérie, ce morceau de la France, trahie et livrée à l'ennemi, qu'ils aient été ainsi complices du pillage, de la ruine et du massacre des Français d'Algérie, de leurs familles, de nos frères musulmans, de nos anciens soldats qui avaient une confiance totale en nous et ont été torturés, égorgés, dans des conditions abominables, sans que rien n'ait été fait pour les protéger : cela je ne le pardonnerai jamais à mes compatriotes : La France est en état de péché mortel. Elle connaîtra un jour le châtiment. » Alphonse JUIN.
