In the year 721, the Muslim Empire was vast. Across the empire Jews and Christians were minorities motivated by a desire to obtain the most favorable status.

In the 15th Century, the Reconquista chased the Jews and Muslims from Spain which heralded the end of Al-Andalus

History now takes us to Europe: the French Revolution. Nation-states. The Jews, now European citizens, became the target of a more asserted anti-Semitism.

"19 février 2003, deux ans après le 11 septembre, aux prémices de l'intervention en Irak, plus de cinq cents personnes venues assister à la controverse entre Jacques Derrida et Jean Baudrillard. Le titre "Pourquoi la guerre ?", référence à la correspondance éponyme entre Freud et Einstein, reste d'une inquiétante actualité. Baudrillard et Derrida vont, au cours de ce débat, s'interroger sur les problématiques essentielles qui se posent encore au monde d'aujourd'hui. Quelles nouvelles siginifications donner aux notions de guerre, de terrorisme, de souveraineté ? Est-ce que la démocratie peut ou non avoir un avenir ? Peut-on envisager l'émergence d'une nouvelle forme d'universalité ?" (Source : jaquette)

The last outpost, Afghanistan( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tells the story of the U.S. effort to build up the Afghan Army, the only real exit strategy. Shot from the ground and on the frontlines, the film chronicles the war through the portrait of two Afghans and an American soldier in an embedded team of 130 Afghans. The two cinematographers-directors, Tim Grucza and Yuri Maldavski, spent one month and a half with the soldiers in a tiny outpost, by the Pakistan border, looking into Waziristan. Ultimately, the film is a look at the absurdity of the war and the impossibility of the fight. It will also explore the psychology, motivation and identity of two people fighting a common enemy but radically opposed in their cultures and ways of life
