Edward Said
Crude caricatures
printer friendly version
So far as the United States seems to be concerned, it is only
a slight overstatement to say that Moslems and Arabs are
essentially seen as either oil suppliers or potential terrorists.
Very little of the detail, the human density, the passion of
Arab-Moslem life has entered the awareness of even those
people whose profession it is to report the Arab world. What
we have instead is a series of crude, essentialized caricatures
of the Islamic world presented in such a way as to make that
world vulnerable to military aggression.
