Mythe d'Abraham et laïcité. Abram-Abraham/Saraï-Sarah, mythes et grammaires bibliques.

En posant la problématique abrahamique, les organisateurs de cette soirée-débat sont conscients du moment exceptionnel dans lequel le monde de langue arabe, majoritairement musulman et minoritairement chrétien, vit depuis le début de l’année 2011.
Une parole a été libérée, des revues ont été créées, des tabous sont levés comme le montre l’ampleur des débats autour du rôle de la société civile dans toutes ses composantes. Certains craignent, d’autres aspirent à l’établissement d’un nouveau pacte impliquant non une disparition de la religion, mais son glissement vers une place sociale différente. Cette tension n’épargne pas Israël où la controverse sur un projet de constitution laïque a tourné court en 2000.
A partir du « cas Abraham », il apparaît possible de fournir des outils de compréhension et d’analyse à différents niveaux : l’éducation, la culture, la politique et la géopolitique.
