A One State Solution
Program #SAIE022. Recorded in New York, NY on February 08, 1999.
Edward Said forcefully argues for a one-state solution. He reports on his books being banned in Arab countries, he says “That’s the fate of everyone. We’re talking about autocracies and despotisms.” As to the so-called peace process and media coverage, he comments, “the old clichés, the old stereotypes and discourse are absolutely in place, untouched by reality or facts. I was once on the Charlie Rose Show on PBS. He kept repeating the prevailing wisdom at me and didn’t let me finish my sentences.” Prof. Said talks about his visit to Nazareth, his mother’s hometown and his lecture at Frank Sinatra Hall “financed by the singer who was a great supporter of Israel.” He describes his pioneering musical collaboration with Daniel Barenboim. Note: Said was an accomplished classical pianist.
