Edward Said – Reflections on Exile and Other Essays


Edward Said (November 1, 1935 Jerusalem September 25, 2003) is a Palestinian American intellectual, writer, and my inspiration.  I came across this interview conducted in 2000 in which he talks about many important issues including Palestine, Israel, and the conflict. I was thinking of writing about the interview highlights, but all of the video is worth to watch and reflect on. 

What I really admire about Edward Said is that he kept writing till his last breath. The interview doesn’t just tackle Palestine, but also some  personal insights on his sickness and how he coped with it.  The reason I keep delving into Edward Said’s writings and interviews is that I always find inspiration and motivation in them. 

If you want to learn more about Palestine and its history then it’s one right source!

    The initiative supports Voter Registraton Cards for all refugees and
    diaspora, showing town and district of origin, e.g. Haifa, Acre, Jaffa.
    Also using Out of Country Voting (OCV), with international observers and
    recognition and also media reporting.

    Could you suggest people I could talk to/contact with ideas for spreading
    the idea below? Also to refugees in camps?
    I am working with a Palestinian, Basema Salman, based in Holland.
    Many thanks for any help.
