The Gulf Crisis, the Question of Palestine and U.S. Policy
Program #SAIE004. Recorded in Boulder, CO on September 26, 1990.
Edward Said describes the matrix from which Saddam Hussein evolves, the U.S. involvement in the Middle East and ways to resolve not only the current Gulf crisis but the long-simmering Israeli-Palestinian issue. Said contends that U.S. policy and public attitudes are jaundiced by "hostility and ignorance towards the Arabs, Islam and their culture." The media present the Arab world as "either an empty desert or terrorists." Said exposes these reductive clichés and stereotype and opens the way for a genuine understanding of the present situation.
