Bernard-Henri Lévy on the Streets of Tehran

Bernard-Henri Lévy, one of France's leading intellectuals (you can tell by the way he buttons his shirt) pays dramatic homage to the uprising in Iran. The rhythm of the speech is vaguely MLK'esque. But the content is distinctly French intello. (Somehow Michel Foucault gets worked into an analysis of what's happening on the streets of Tehran.)
