BHL Indicted

I'm a few weeks late on this one, but it's worth posting nonetheless. On Counterpunch (here), Tariq Ali writes:
“Order for the  indictment of Bernard-Henri Lévy before the Assize Court, and for  his arrest:
We have determined that whereas investigation has established the following facts concerning the accused:
- His unrelenting promotion of imperialism and Zionism,
- His intellectual fakery, symptom of philosophical nullity amid the accumulation of capital and power,
- His leveling of false accusations and calumnies against Iran,
- His warmongering and advocacy of “humanitarian imperialism,”
- His aiding in the creation and promotion of SOS Racisme to smother autonomous immigration movements,
- His dissemination of false news likely to sow social and eligious discord between Christians and Muslims.

For these reasons, we rule that  there is sufficient evidence against Bernard-Henri Lévy that he  committed such acts, punishable under the Criminal Code, in regard to Articles 175, 176, 181, 183 and 184. We order the indictment of Bernard-Henri Lévy, to be lodged at the Court of Assizes of the department of Seine- Saint-Denis to be tried according to law.”
Executed in Chambers, December 18, 2010.”
We've been following BHL's antics for some time: whether he is working some bad scholarship, blabbering about Icelandic volcanoes, or prevaricating about Israel/Palestine.
