Reader comment on item: Rashid Khalidi's Appointment at Columbia University

Submitted by AL GREENFIELD (United States), Sep 2, 2003 at 19:46

1. The link to the original Australian article did not work; I was interested in confirming that in fact Rashid lied about the quote attributed to him.

2. What would one expect from an appointee to a chair named in honor of, or financed by, Edward Said?

Would Said permit anyone to occupy his chair, who did not agree wi th his anti-Semitic,
anti-Israel point of view? Has not Edward Said been proven, publicly, to be a liar about his own personal history and background?
