Could you explain why you bring up Edward Said? Doesn't seem to fit with the article. But since you want to talk about that, I read Said on that non-event. He was in the South of Lebanon where many threw rocks at the gate. No one was around at that moment as far as Said knew. He picked up ONE rock and threw it and was most shocked to find this scene in a picture that went around the world press. Why is this such a big deal to you or anybody? For all the pain that the Lebanese adventure caused, throwing a stone seems pretty banal. As I recall, following the publication of that picture, Edw Said was uninvited with no explanation to speak at a conference of psychiatrists in Germany. Seems there was some pressure exerted on the congress organizers...
