"Ibn Arabi, the Sufi who travelled from Andalusia towards the Orient, a verbose mystic who gave the Andalusian world access to a new type of knowledge, but who was also a contemporary of Averroès, with whom he may have had a meeting: the mystic face-to-face with the rationalist, the allegorical thinker face-to-face with the philosopher who made demonstration a model for all knowledge". In "Pourquoi Lire les Philosophes Arabes. L'Héritage Oublié" (Why Read Arab Philosophers. The Forgotten Heritage), published by Espaces Libres Poches, Albin Michel, Ali Benmakhlouf explains how their work in the fields of medicine, logic and history contributed to the formation of European culture. Following his documentary "T'Es Où Youssef?" (Where Are You Youssef), available to watch on TV5MONDEplus, in which he tried to follow the trail of Youssef, a Canadian classmate who became a jihadi in Syria, the journalist Raed Hammoud returns with "Les Poussières de Daech" (The Dust of ISIS). He heads off in search of the young daughter left by Youssef who, with her father now dead, is growing up in a refugee camp in Syria. Leïla, Youssef's sister, tries to bring the child back, either to Canada, as she theoretically has Canadian nationality, or to Morocco, her mother's country of origin.
Accents of northern France, Occitanie and Brittany mixed with hints of Creole and Berber... HK returns with his new album "Petite Terre" (Little Land), from which the first extract "Balance ta Babouche" (Chuck your Slipper) was inspired someone throwing their shoes at George W. Bush in 2008. Due to the health crisis, the author of the hit "On Ne Lâche Rien" (We Don't Give Up) missed out on the Fête de l'Humanité but has lost none of his sparkling vitality.
