Palestine & the Universality of Human Rights
Program #SAIE031. Recorded in Berkeley, CA on February 19, 2003.
Recorded on the eve of the attack on Iraq, Edward Said says the war will be a disaster and is motivated by "resources and strategic control." He then moves to Palestine where "building a wall will not solve the problem." While acknowledging the "hopeless situation that encloses us all" he concludes on an optimistic note where he discusses future reconciliation and his vision of hopeful paradigms. "There are other models," he says, pointing to his musical collaboration with Daniel Barenboim. Lecture w/ Q&A.
