The late Professor Edward Said was one of our foremost and distinguished intellectual, who actually deserved the title "expert."

In this excerpt "Clash of Ignorance," he again as an English professor proves why his work is held in such high esteem by the non-phony intelligencia.

One has to read Prof. Said's work with careful attention to learn the heart of his arguments. And again, this piece where he tears Samuel Huntington's crass and sloppy thesis as overly simplistic is highly accurate and admirable.

May God bless you, Dr. Said, for your courage for standing up for Palestinian rights and the indelible legacy of justice and critique you have left behind.
