QUOTE | FROM Christopher Hitchens




In a public dialogue with Salman in London he Edward Said had once described the Palestinian plight as one where his people, expelled and dispossessed by Jewish victors, were in the unique historical position of being 'the victims of the victims': there was something quasi-Christian, I thought, in the apparent humility of that statement.
