Synopsis: In this video, noted author Edward Said discusses the traditional views of western people about eastern cultures and discusses the influences that have led people to think the way that they do. Said finds many answers in the tradition of western imperialism that began in the 17th century. Particular attention is paid to the demonization of Islam and the almost knee-jerk reaction of western powers to support Israeli over Palestinian aims. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi
