11:15 pm
didn't yet know how our nakba the catastrophe would later influence his life and career. what overcomes me now is the scale of dislocation our family and friends experienced and of which i was scarcely conscious essentially unknowing witness in one nine hundred forty eight. it was through art maybe her that i first experience palestine as history and cause . it was also she who communicated to me the desolation of being without a country or a place to return to. but i couldn't really comprehend the tragedy that had befallen them nor could i piece together all the different narrative fragments to understand what had really happened in palestine. the palestinian cause was always deep seated and edward intellectual
11:16 pm
emotional or. physical life. and what made him such an extraordinary scholar an intellectual was that he was always connecting different aspects of his life he never compartmentalize do you know there are many academics for you know the the private the personal one aspect of their life and then the intellectual the professional is another aspect where there were there was an integration of all aspects of of of of being. after nine hundred forty eight the saeed family couldn't go back from cairo to jerusalem western loosen them had become almost entirely israeli but edwards didn't stay in egypt long he was

this day a place where i'm sitting right now used to be edwards aides office his secretary used to sit in one of the rooms you know down this down this hall and the room that you see here almost everything is as it was where when he was here you know the the book of this book this glass bookcase this desk was edward said that chair was edwards and this was their server an office with a lot of history. saeed's endeavor might have remained purely literary and his connection with the arab world simply a family had it not been for events in the middle east in one thousand nine hundred
11:21 pm
sixty seven. between the fifth and the tenth of june israel fought and defeated the combined on of egypt syria and jordan. the nine hundred sixty seven war changed the month of the middle east and still hampers the peace process today but it also had a profound effect on science and. the year nine hundred sixty seven was a devastating year for me and everything i had grown up with i was in america by that time i was alone. being in new york there was a sense of triumphalism which appeared for the first time in one amongst the jewish but amongst everybody where you would walk down the street and people would say are we doing and it was always understood that was israel you know little state about to be overwhelmed by winning this tremendous victory i was no longer the same person after nine hundred sixty seven the shock of that war drove me back to where
11:22 pm
it had all started the struggle over palestine. the p.l.o. was formed in the mid sixty's and began to be a represent recognized as representative of the post and in cause after the sixty seven war and for the attitudes changed enormously u.s. policy changed that if you take a look at the media coverage there's a spike in the one nine hundred sixty seven which remained very covered with israel is higher than almost any other country since that and this became a leading issue in american political life internationally as well and. was of course that it is quite true that his direct engagement both of them and in the issue really traces of one nine hundred sixty seven bad service at the end that after they would get this house at the in some brain. than they did then
11:23 pm
there's had left a hole then imagine myle them and who he had for less than a i love them then let down i have done. and them a second to my fellow man and. i will stop to live in the hope of the author not the lupton who i mean of course all of them as lesser men up. we do in eighty so i would that had. been the hoody that musa had one accords as it months and i and walk on from the scene they have that. saeed's preoccupation with the arab world began to manifest itself in his academic work literary criticism and polemical writing. he began studying the cultural portrayal of arab peoples and places and writing the visual arts and media. he explored the relationship between the enlightenment which underpinned much of western high culture and philosophy and colonialism. this led
11:24 pm
to the publication of his most influential book orientalism in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight a work often considered to have forced westerners to reexamine their perceptions of the islamic world. this book grew in ways i hadn't foreseen and then suddenly became something much more it became the whole history of the representation of the other. i think it was one of the first books to try to do that. the book wasn't just a scholarly thing but also explained clichés i had been used to govern the colonial state. road the book was very original innovative and perceptive an acute
11:25 pm
study of the way in which the the others the east is use case you or ental countries were depicted interpreted and understood in the scholarly literature of the west reviewed a lot of the but also in the general culture but what it did was open it open minds to a willingness among many people at least to consider their own biases. predilections a. tacit beliefs and esca whether these were distorting and modifying or interpretation of other cultures and what to say then based on them as though it might if it were happening to him with the pope feeling it's called gnashing it it would throw it a hundred feet. up. that would go to

11:27 pm
well in orientalism i mean he he thought of that from the start and i think that after that i mean it became as a study in itself in the united states after he wrote that book. saeed's influential writing around him almost superstar status in some u.s. academic circles and he was a leading figure in a group of elite intellectual palestinian americans that began to emerge in the mid seventy's and eighty's. their aim of creating a new image of the palestinians in the american mind provoked huge has to lety in pro israeli new york in specially as saeed continued to attack israeli violations of human rights of palestinians and condemned u.s. policy on the middle east. prominent palestinians came under attack from both sides from the far right jewish defense league of the j d l and from other muslims ismael

when. edward saeed was an american palestinian writer and academic whose influential nine
11:34 pm
hundred seventy eight book orientalism challenge to western preconceptions about arabs and the arab world. born in jerusalem in the one nine hundred thirty s. he later became one of the most prominent champions of the palestinian cause in the west making him a controversial figure in the arab israeli conflict. although he only spent early childhood years in the middle east a nonetheless experienced a strong sense of displacement throughout his life and career in america expressed most articulately in his nine hundred ninety nine memoir out of place as an outspoken critic of israel in the u.s. he suffered verbal and physical attacks. edward had to deal with all kinds of terrible events this very often he was there were people who tried to
11:35 pm
break in to us often this is one reason why your notice at the door it's a very heavy door there's a reason for that not all the offices in philosophy hall have that kind of go in the reason you might have noticed every boat was because they tried to break into his office so it's all connected to the professor of terror you know it came out of that terrible ugly moment. saeed found himself increasingly absorbed by east west cultural studies as well as palestine and the arab israeli conflict this was expressed in his published writing. he was born into a christian family in west jerusalem so he was not a religious man but this did not stop him arguing strongly in covering islam that the western media distorts the image of islam. in the question of palestine in one
11:36 pm
thousand nine hundred seventy nine he traced the clash between two middle eastern people followed by his first book on structuralist literary critical theory here texts the book called the world the text and they pretty remains singular achievement of his literary signal. now after the publication of orientalism and soon after orientalism cultural imperialism that those two books became so important in the field of course the running of the studies that they overshadow his military work but the fact is that increasingly if you go from one university to another in u.s. europe the arab world etc you will see that the significance of his need to really work is increasingly coming to the surface and in fact i would even venture to say without understanding his military disposition his preoccupation with the question of my nieces we cannot understand orientalism and. harboring islam and so who are
11:37 pm
the two aspects of in scholarship are interrelated the man if we are show you the facility with him with the heavy metal. model of steve biko can you acquire cilla if you had come in who are cool mom or in. what to what that is central awful a mock when because of mr malik at that well maliki was with adverts aid can be a method just skimmin him in the name of the force of the other than ever the man is the first minister in ministry and bill who would think oh let the stock part and to develop the gasoline arthel many asian who were let me let me can last one for it was rude to be. really good most would have come out at the bill mccollum will assist with setting the so we you but there are certain i will call and you really will be enough. for again who is our wanted there to be what can yet free in other words they use gotta have better tiled for
11:38 pm
a livin and it can help in this one you might think. not be a little pursuing. one of so he does most read essays was called reflections on exile in it he explores the relationship between his. own exile and that of palestinians. he sees exile as a state of mind as much as a physical reality a psychological condition shared by those rejecting regional and local ties including their native country. saeed's exile meant putting distance between him and his cultural identity and he decided that it could ultimately be a valuable human condition. exile in the words of wallace stevens there's
11:39 pm
a mind of winter in which the path of summer and autumn as much as the potential of spring are nearby but unobtainable. exile is the and healable rift force between a human being and a native place between the self and its true home. the essential sadness of the break can never be surmounted. the achievement of any exile are permanently undermined by his or her sense of loss. reckon that once. or hate the who can live you have got the philistine among our. circle of light every year will dilute me of some of the incentives but ballymena shot out. of it in sydney for the steam to see
11:40 pm
it has a shot of pollutants in it was sort of meant for. fisher said if you get bit first in work how. then of whom the coffee were there is an advertisement as i said can we at that and then months. and they live there well econd the live and let him up there and miller the un to sit down. that it would make any at the norwalk any there is course again that is most of the columbia as an intellectual exile meant for the coffee. keyboarding with coffee and i mean really who would affect feet on with their wrists and this one yet got helen with a cough i looked at it and was stunned i went. yes at the end i love died of the rat deaf in the only samoan mess second when it was them.
11:41 pm
in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven saeed was elected to the palestinian national council as an independent the p. and c. is the legislative body of the palestine liberation organization the p.l.o. a kind of parliament representing all palestinians in the occupied territories and elsewhere. he tried to avoid factional infighting making what he felt were strategic interventions what it meant. what it meant sharper not obey you when. they are you know i'm not i'm not not not. at a meeting of the p.m.c. in algiers in november one thousand nine hundred eighty eight p.l.o. chairman yasser arafat made the palestinian declaration of independence it had been written by the palestinian poet and author mahmoud darwish but that would sayit had also had a prominent role in drafting the declaration proclaimed the establishment of the
11:42 pm
state of palestine effectively the two state solution. he was that he was very close to a part of the person in the national council and he was also very critical of the many of their positions he was burned. but no can i do a day on them yes that there was sort of a lemon yet it can last out on our side and the home of a says a lot of fat. well i can now get the area back that when sun sun and. up again they really had an upward for what. they had the. philistine for this to. be a kind of how the hell a sad home. i. guess that there are any of them in a buffalo and the whole. you read. that stuff is.
11:43 pm
in one hundred ninety one edward so you'd was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia he had to undergo extensive chemotherapy and for his illness for the next twelve years. the suffering he experienced forced him to go back to his childhood and really evaluate his past he began work on the revealing biography who was our life out of place. by the time i began treatment in march one thousand nine hundred four i realized that i had at least entered if not the final phase of my life then the period back i mean leaving the garden. and main one thousand nine hundred four i began work on this book these details are important as a way of explaining to myself and to my reader how the time of this book is
11:44 pm
intimately tied to the time phases ups and downs variations in my illness. lemme. know at the end if what if and. and mara can it sub mccleary l o l and not kill. our language and babbles lay up get our house a house and simulate. a while oh. well i can suddenly can't really soppy or i had no way at kilwa that there are no blah no doubt diagnosis of leukemia it was extremely important at what size psychological intellectual disposition suddenly without expectation he faced his mortality but as he said in an interview all it took was just one picture of ariel sharon to send him
11:45 pm
back to his. moral courageous imagination he never buckled down at the face of death saeed's illness brought feelings of loss flooding back to him he later described it as attempting to return to bits of life or people who were no longer there he wrote about trying to find a place to die. in one thousand nine hundred two he went back to west to sing to the toby a neighborhood where he was born he reportedly walked the streets searching for his family's old homes where he'd spent his early years and which he'd left forty five years before. but the story goes that when he found he was simply unable to ask the owners if he could look inside. i could not meet lost face
11:46 pm
to face. i stood by the door like a beggar. how could i ask permission from strangers sleeping in my own bed ask them if i could visit myself for five minutes should i bow in respect to the residents of my childish dream would they are ask who is that prying foreign visitor. what headlines already. been this way i know can't hear what they. have let my wife have a little better and if it were. their fault that well i've been here when us have been back and. aesthetics here on my book. well.
11:47 pm
in that the. edward saeed worked hard in the us media to explain how the nine hundred eighty eight palestine declaration was in fact a compromise and this pave the way for the nine hundred ninety one madrid conference and then the signing of the oslo accords on the white house lawn in september nine hundred ninety three by yasser arafat blitzer could have been a mahmoud abbas. but saeed had become increasingly critical of the way the negotiations were heading and had resigned from the p. and c. in the nine hundred ninety one. he considered the oslo agreement to be unfair and far too heavily weighted in favor of israel and it amounted he said to a palestinian surrender. it was a complete chance i was outraged by the document. these rarely government letter to
11:48 pm
the p.l.o. was one and i have lines in which it says the government of israel recognizes that the p.l.o. is the representative of palestinian people. the palestinian letter was a page and a half long single spaced apologizing for terrorists saying that we've taken back this we're not going to do this again we recognize israel the right to live in peace recognized all this stuff dealing with a state that until today still hasn't declared its international borders. our return to gaza for the first time was about to go to gaza. it would rage at him when i was speaking to reset this man he he cars are off that agreement he takes no maps with him he takes no lawyers with him in the israeli government or not with all the lawyers and this man has never seen a jewish settlement in the west bank and gaza and he thinks he can negotiate you
11:49 pm
know and i think it was right arafat's got taken for a right suburb and he left for the ac man one of the men my measures are right on they can model together here. about that i'm delighted to sign. up kind of hard to. develop the ovi did my that subject. the c.s.o. the head of the c.s.c. by name and i think. that z. this is some of the highlights on the theorem and the two that number c r c and this is really the good. side of the have. when the sabbath or the sting enough so who then we had at the. it was a had can and the macand i have hammock you feel what. i'm for a look of the full city hello eilidh though that then don't let them quote the you
11:50 pm
were head out again false in. kenya the colombian had and will again that the new made a but would not now though they were. again and again jani you me i lay in the yeah i'm in norman i'm not going to do an hour should not but we are a for coffee and i were makin under a mosquito but the had just like this and you got to have but i had to have four balls for a month the question is for any and i seem to mean it's for any man most of the units are in the opposition and they're doing that if you know miss i submitted then i missed this or you know i have the america i meant come up but it will have been no yesterday best to have me. and let's say that in north and norm that he the busiest and by that settled say and again it did a bit more kenyan in my diet doc the again the net gain was that the fam where most forcefully on your side is any without the sort of wealth any i think edward was reaching a stage of frustration that he was beginning to think there would never be a palestine you couldn't it is very late so writing as if you had two men on
11:51 pm
