7034: Re: 7011: Re: 6903: Necklacing and Aristide (Re: 6880) (fwd)
I think that you have it all wrong and I wish to correct your statements for
Andrea's understanding about "that famous speech" given by President Aristide
exhorting people to use the infamous "PÃ¨ Lebrun" torture.
This speech could be listened as it was given on the radio and could be seen
"live" on the National television. It was not given upon his return but a
few days before the coup d'Etat and I, personally, believe that it largely
contributed to his downfall.
I do not take position in politics. I have nothing against the present
government, I just seat, listen and wait hoping for Vodoun to be recognized.
However, one must be aware of the nature of the President. I do not consider
Jean Bertrand Aristide as a person very considerate of the needs of his
population but as a Vodouist, what can I expect from a Christian priest? The
Christian churches have created Satan and Vodoun has always been considered
as such, by them.
If anyone believes that President Aristide is a kind and amiable person, they
haven't read his first publication : 100 Vese de Deckoukaj - Va-t-en Satan
(1986) *. One hundred bible verses were chosen and illustrated to explain how
to uproot undesirable elements of the Haitian society.
Such verses and comments are explicit by themselves:
"Som 58, 8a : Se pou yo disparet tankou dlo lavalas kap koule desann
- Si n pa kontinye teke, y ap remonte kouran an. " (JBA comment)
(They have to disappear like the impetuous torrent water that goes down the
- If we don't continue hiting, they could come back up stream)
"Som 58, 4b : Moun kap bay manti gen madichon depi nan vant manman yo
- Yo deja mÃ² red"(JBA comment)
(Those who lie are cursed since the time they were in their mother's womb
- They are already quite dead)
"Jeremi 5, 13: Map fe pawol mwen mete nan bouch ou tounen yon dife: Dife a
pral boule yo net
- Lap boule yo net net netâ?¦ " (the illustration shows a person burning in a
big flame above JBA comment)
(I shall have the words I have put in your mouth turn to fire. Fire that will
completely consume them .
-It will consume them completely, completely, completely.)
"Jeremi9, 7 Mwen pral pase yo nan dife, pou m netwaye yo
- Yo k cheche sa " (JBA comment)
( I shall pass them through fire in order to clean them up
- They looked for it)
"Som 58, 40 Malveyan yo peveti depi nan vant maman yo
- Yo toupatou . " (JBA comment, illustrated with a pregnant woman)
(Evil doers are already perverted since they were in their mother's womb
- One can find them everywhere)
"Som 58, 10b Bondye ap fÃ© kole lap rache yo pandan yo tou vivan
- Malouk! Menâ?¦" (JBA comment)
(God is irritated at them he slices them to pieces while they are alive.
- Hard! Butâ?¦.)
"Jeremi 22, 19 Y ap antere l tankou chen, yap trennen kadav li, yap voye l
jete byen lwenâ?¦
- Ak rezon " (JBA comment)
( They should be buried like dogs, their cadavers are just desecrated and
thrown away, very far away...
- And that's right)
Etc. There were 100 verses like these and I spare you the rest. The bible is
certainly not a compilation of nice deeds but they didn't happen yesterday
and I abstain from judging. Inciting to reactualize such barbaric acts in
the 20th century is another matter of concern. Furthermore, for having
followed the dechoukaj, I have noticed how the methods of killing resembled
those so crudely described.

Â· This booklet sold in Haiti has no name of publisher and no
imprimaturâ?¦though, I read in Haiti-ProgrÃ¨s (10-16/9/1986) that it had been
published in French and creole (translated by Henry-Claude Menard) with
illustrations by: Les Editions Haiti Nouvelle, MontrÃ©al, sous le nom de 100
versets bibliques pour la Deduvalierisation - Va-T'en-Satan. The announcement
said in its last paragraph: "Notons pour terminer que cette brochure
s'integre dans un travail de conscientisation, les lecteurs Ã©tant appelÃ©s Ã
poursuibre la lutte contre les criminels et les corrompus, le leitmotiv Ã©tant
qu'- il faut dÃ©duvalieriser jusqu'au bout ! -" (This book is part of a work
of conscientization, the readers should pursue their actions against the
criminal and the corrupted persons, the leitmotiv being : One must
deduvalierize to the end)
