Said was able to put on the table what has been under the ground for long time. knowledge making practices of the west towards the "orient" has been unquestionable and unchallenged so far. He was able to use western academic tools to criticize western academia.
I am disturbed by the claims of Said to intellectual honesty.
Intellectual honesty can be assigned to a person like Ferenc Deak, not to Edward Said.
He cares for the Palestinian people, but his care is more damaging than beneficial.
The Palestinian people need a genuine Palestinian Ferenc Deak, and not an intellectually dishonest Said. Sorry for the critical words for a deceased genius.
