6:03 pm
absorbed by east west cultural studies as well as palestine and the arab israeli conflict this was expressed in his published writing. he was born into a christian family in west jerusalem so he was not a religious man but this did not stop him arguing strongly in covering islam that the western media distorts the image of islam. in the question of palestine in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine he traced the clash between two middle eastern people followed by his first book on structuralist literary critical theory here texts the book called the world the text and they pretty remains singular achievement of his literary signal. now after the publication of orientalism and soon after orientalism cultural imperialism that those two books became so

6:06 pm
a psychological condition shared by those rejecting regional and local ties including their native country. saeed's exile meant putting distance between him and his cultural identity and he decided that it could ultimately be a valuable human condition. exile in the words of wallace stevens is a mind of winter in which the path of summer and autumn as much as the potential of spring are nearby but unobtainable. exile is the and healable rift force between a human being and a native place between the self and its true home. the essential sadness of the break can never be surmount. the achievements of any exile are permanently

6:11 pm
by the time i began treatment in march one thousand nine hundred four i realized that i had at least entered if not the final phase of my life than the period like i am an even the garden. and main one thousand nine hundred four i began work on this book these details are important as a way of explaining to myself and to my reader how the time of this book is intimately tied to the time phases ups and downs variations in my illness. and would the any if what if. my job cannot subject merely a low. oh i don't care about the law yet again our house the house and senate. and. that's. a while. well i care some

carrier. or other now at kilwa that they're now blah no doubt the big noses of leukemia was extremely important at what size psychological intellectual disposition suddenly without expectation he faced his mortality but as he said in an interview all it took was just one picture of ariel sharon to send him back to his. moral courageous imagination he never buckled down at the face of death. saeed's illness brought feelings of loss flooding back to him he later described it as attempting to return to bits of life or people who were no longer there he wrote about trying to find
6:13 pm
a place to die. in one thousand nine hundred two he went back to west jerusalem to the told be a neighborhood where he was born he reportedly walked the streets searching for his family's old homes where he'd spent his early years and which he'd left forty five years before but the story goes that when he found the house he was simply unable to ask the owners if he could look inside. i could not meet loss face to face. i stood by the door like a beggar. how could i ask permission from strangers sleeping in my own bed ask them if i could visit myself for five minutes should i bow in respect to the residents of my childish dream would they are ask who is that prying foreign
6:14 pm
visitor. what he learns already bit but in this way i know can't hear what it. was that led better and if it. met their fault that what i have been here when us have been back and. aesthetics do you know my book. well. in that the. edward saeed worked hard in the us media to explain how the nine hundred eighty eight palestine declaration was in fact a compromise and this pave the way for the nine hundred ninety one madrid conference and then the signing of the oslo accords on the white house lawn in september nine hundred ninety three by yasser arafat blitzer could have been
6:15 pm
a mahmoud abbas. but saeed had become increasingly critical of the way the negotiations were heading and had resigned from the p. and c. in the one nine hundred ninety one. he considered the oslo agreement to be unfair and far too heavily weighted in favor of israel and it amounted he said to a palestinian surrender. it was a complete chance i was outraged by the document. these rarely government letter to the p.l.o. was one and i have lines in which it says the government of israel recognizes that the p.l.o. is the representative of palestinian people. the palestinian letter was a page and a half long single spaced apologizing for terrorists saying that we've taken back this we're not going to do this again we recognize israel the right to live in peace recognized all this stuff dealing with
6:16 pm
a state that until today still hasn't declared its international borders. our return to gaza for the first time was about to go to gaza. it would rage at him when i was speaking to reset this man he he cars are off that agreement he takes no maps with him he takes no lawyers with him in the israeli government or not with all the lawyers and this man has never seen a jewish settlement in the west bank and gaza and he thinks he can negotiate you know and i think it was right arafat's got taken for right to left for the ac a man one of the men and measures the authentic and mild they had here. about that the latter to sign. up can hard to. develop the overheated my that subject. the c.s.o. the head of the c.s.c. by name and i think. that z.

6:19 pm
couldn't really see that being a palestinian state a real i mean it would be but his has its own security which has its right to the land which you know cannot be overflowed by anyone else unless permission i think he began to realize that this was becoming less and less realistic. saeed continued to care deeply about the impact of nine eleven and the two thousand and three iraq war but as his health declined he stepped out of the political spotlight. music had always been a passion but now it became the main focus of his life. he'd with books like musical elaborations on late style and with the argentine israeli conductor daniel barenboim parallels and paradoxes. in one thousand nine hundred
6:20 pm
ninety the two founded the west eastern divine orchestra bringing together young arab and israeli musicians. and what can most or fame in all can't get better than my possible. or can now click once again you will see for hey that's usually how much that nine. jet aboard near shore washed out at the bangle wish should be of salt or we ever had a hell of a rush to be had to. be the first show and no had any guests at all. here had we can't possibly advocate it and will see enough of being. a say. that i cannot get on one in the interval. until. one time miss for most of them was sequestered yes but though it

6:22 pm
lebanon israeli border. there he famously threw a stone towards the disputed border and was predictably again labeled the professor of tatar. it was seidler honor to walk on those same walk walkway that you walk or throw any stone that you have you thought it was a symbolic move had nothing to do with anything they have changed the meaning and tried to change the meaning of intifada which has to do with violence has nothing to do with violence in the fall that means a palestinian who stands up and says i'm a palestinian that's intifada a palestinian who. goes to hold up a sucker that's an intifada a palestinian we it's one that's an intifada it's all of the father means resistance to occupation and theft of your home that's what intifada means throwing a stone from across a border is a meaningless symbolic act that has nothing to do with terrorism is expressing the fact that israel was repeatedly invading lebanon devastating southern
6:23 pm
lebanon bombing beirut over and over and this was a bit of symbolic. resentment in opposition to this to these constant to attacks professor of terrorism is an interesting phrase has to do with with the term terrorism is used in the united states terrorism has a very narrow meaning in u.s. discourse it refers to the allegedly terrorist acts of others but not of ourselves and our laws. edward saeed died on the twenty fifth of september two thousand and three. he'd had a huge professional impact particularly on the way cultures are examined described and defined. he tied a major political impact in the middle east through his work in the p. and c.
6:24 pm
and in the west as a high profile champion of the palestinian cause. his writing has been translated into twenty six languages. his last wish was to be buried in lebanon on the birthplace of his mother to be as close as possible to palestine the place he'd felt exiled from all his life that had caused him to live and die out of place. he said if i die before you are my will is the impossible. i asked is the impossible far off he said a generation away. i asked and if i die before you. he said i shall pay my condolences to mount galilee.

this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. this is the deal that is on the table this is the best possible deal it's the. new leaders approved the british prime minister's brix a deal but to resume a still faces a battle to get it through her own parliament. a boat capsizes in lake victoria in uganda killing at least thirty people. plus outrage in spain thousands marched in protest violence against women for a controversial court ruling. and in sport the couple of doors final between boca juniors and replace is set to go ahead later it comes after an attack on the book a team boss and fighting on the streets of when it's. saturday's take off been postponed.
6:30 pm
a sad day that's how the european commission president describes this sunday as the u.k. gets ready to leave the european union e.u. leaders approved the final agreement on britain's divorce in under an hour at a summit in brussels. described persons departure from the block as a tragedy says the agreement is the best possible but it is fallout from britain's prime minister treason may return to london she still has a political mountain to climb to convince paula months to paul the deal and she's written an open letter urging the british public supports well president of the european commission so there's always been a priority to ensure the u.k. maintains a strong relationship with the. the european council approved the political declaration setting out the framework for
6:31 pm
the future relationship between the european union and the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland the european council reinstated the union's determination to have as close as possible a partnership with the united kingdom in the future. that all joins us now live from brussels i joined the e.u. leaders have endorsed the deal as we expected them to what was the mood like. yes hugely significant moment this on the road to briggs it laura took them just half an hour in fact to unanimously endorse the product of eighteen months of very difficult negotiations with great britain over the the terms of its exit from the european union but there was certainly no air of celebration in the room and instead it was a rather sort of mournful and poignant moment with many of the leaders noting with deep regret britain's decision to leave the commission president you heard a little bit from him there he spoke of it not being a moment for jubilation but
6:32 pm
a moment of deep sadness he said there are no smooth divorces donald the council president said no one will find reason for happiness here other leaders i'm going to merkel and margaret are from the netherlands talking about there being no winners only losers that was the tone on the e.u. side contrast is somewhat with to resume a in her press conference afterwards because she is now bound to strike a very different note on this deal and on this process she's got to talk it up for all she's worth and indeed she says she will do so with all of her heart and soul over the next couple of weeks as the deal now moves to national parliaments including of course the british parliament where it faces a skeptical at best ranging to deeply hostile response from m.p.'s in both parties and on both sides of the argument take a listen now to what she had to say. my focus over the next few weeks is on as i've
6:33 pm
just said on making the case for this deal as you've heard any president younkers said this was the only deal possible this is being echoed by other european leaders and i think that is when people come to vote in the house of commons they would need to ask themselves about two aspects of this particularly the first is delivering back sets i think we have a judy as a house of commons as a parliament to deliver bracks it and the second question is about what it means for our constituents and as i've said the deal that we have to live that i believe delivers not just on what people want it when they vote it for breck's it but also does it in a way that protects jobs protects our security and protects the united kingdom so dan if there is no other deal on the table what are the chances of getting vests one through british parliament and then what happens if it doesn't pass. well we expect to find out tomorrow on monday from downing street when it plans to
6:34 pm
call this vote but potentially in the next couple of weeks that means series of mary's got two weeks now to conduct what she's described as a national conversation starting now in which she's got it as i said talk up the merits of this deal for all she's worth and she's written that letter to the british people encouraging them to encourage their m.p.'s to vote for it because she says there is nothing else on the table there are no other options the e.u. has been united in its stance that negotiations cannot be reopened and she hopes that the alternative the idea of a no deal breakthrough than already is widely believed to be we cannot make chaos that will follow is enough to convince and peas when they sit down and the vote is called at that moment to reassess exercise their responsibility to the country she says and vote for a deal that delivers breaks it delivers on that democratic mandate for the referendum two years ago in. press conference though she red faced
6:35 pm
a range of questions that were almost entirely devoted to what would happen if it didn't pass would she resigned with the government full would would would they return to brussels and try to renegotiate and she wouldn't be drawn she simply said look i'm focused on winning the reserve the reality is that even her foreign secretary today has suggested the government could fall if the vote doesn't pass opposition in parliament is such that it right now looks extremely unlikely that it would pass there after the scenarios range from anything from a new.
