The Palestinian Perspective
Program #SAIE002. Recorded in Madison, WI on October 26, 1989.
On Palestine, Edward Said says, "Americans are ignorant of the facts." Palestinians have been demonized and their concerns and realities have been either distorted or dismissed. They have been stereotyped as terrorists and fanatics. The American intellectual community has been virtually silent on Israeli human rights abuses and violations of international law in the occupied territories. He describes how criticism of Israel in the U.S. is often equated with anti-Semitism further stifling discussion. The Palestinian uprising, intifada, has produced "seismic changes" which provide an opportunity for peace.
