Zemmour the Clarion Call

Reader comment on item: What to Make of Éric Zemmour?

Submitted by Franck Salameh (United States), Dec 1, 2021 at 12:06

The Arabic is actually "horn", and you're right, he's been sounding the alarm for many years now. Decades in his telling. He styles himself "France's Cassandra." That may not be hyperbole.

But his last name is Berber (Kabyle)—Arabic only through folk etymology—and it means "olive" ... So maybe there's an olive branch in what he's doing.
