Bernard-Henri Lévy – Briefing on Human Rights in Nigeria (October 28, 2021)
French philosopher, author, and filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy, in conjunction with ICON, held a briefing to the Congress on the ongoing conflicts and human rights abuses in Nigeria.
The briefing was held on Thursday, October 28th in the Rayburn House Office Building, under the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.
Bernard-Henri Lévy’s latest book/film ‘The Will to See’ was a report based on his recent travels to several conflict zones, including Nigeria.
Few have made the case for liberal interventionism more consistently than Bernard-Henri Lévy. Despite the disasters of Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan, the French public intellectual’s worldview has remained largely unchanged.
He raises concerns for places like Nigeria, where he notices a reasonable call for Christians in Western countries to care more because of their solidarity of faith.
The West should care about massacres, in general, just as they should care about people embracing their values and values. Why do Christians in the West support the Christians of the Middle East, but nothing for the Christians of Nigeria?
