I was searching the P&N threads to look for an Edward Said tribute... but i couldn't find one


i guess you conservatives don't care to read insightful articles written by the geniuses of our time (well not anymore :( )


anyway - RIP Edward Said - your thoughts and humanitarian efforts will be missed.

A man like this, like a deep-thinking conservative, a rare find in the world today.
very true...

i actually got sad when i heard about this - cause i realized i wouldn't be able to read his opinions anymore.

and his opinions i cherish more than - well the existence of any politician in this country.

edit: and what pisses me off is the NY Times article suggests he's an anti-semite. i swear...if you dare speak against israel in anyway....no matter how truthful and factual your argument is...
you will have your reputation stained.

Ira Churnus also has thought provocking essays Text, and of course the Nation is always there as well as Chomsky.
i've read the first article awhile ago - very interesting

there's also this <a target=new class=ftalternatingbarlinklarge href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1902593774/qid=1065088259/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/103-8237592-3199831?

Many of the contributors to this book, like the veteran peace activist and journalist, Yuri Avneri, have born witness to the savagery of that denial. Just how awful the occupation is, and how cruel the onslaughts on the Intifada are eloquently described by a Palestinian, Edward Said, and an Israeli Jew, Yigal Bronner. Both, please note, still nourish a vision of a future in which Israeli Jews and Palestinians live peaceful and tolerant lives, side by side.

I guess the resident liberals, communists, socialists, anarchists, acidheads, facists, squares, Birchers, airheads, moderates, neurotics, potheads or <insert name of (least) favorite group here> don't care either? If so, then why didn't one of the aforementioned groups relate this information earlier?

I agree. He was a great scholar.
