To buttress his declaration of war against the Islamic State, Levy invokes Victor Hugo:
"To these vile, ignorant men we must utter the beautiful
words that Victor Hugo exclaimed in September 1870, at the time of the
massacres of the Paris Commune: An attack on Paris is more than an
attack on France, it destroys the whole world. The only word to describe
these men is fascists.Better: Islamofascists".
The reference to the Paris Commune is a reference to the massacre of the Paris Communards (Frenchmen) by the French soldiers of the Napoloeon III's French government at the end of the Franco-Prussian war in 1870-71. How this relates to the terrorist attack in Paris recently is anyone's guess. Levy must be ignorant of history or just plain daft.
