Damn You Greeks!
Jul 27, 2007
Maybe Bush and Blair were reading their Xenophon, since even poor Saddam Hussein gets into Hall’s indictment, along with the war against terror, the ongoing Iraqi conflict and the other usual suspects. So, thanks to Edward Said, we can forget all that suicide bombing, IEDs, fatwas, televised beheadings, virulent anti-Semitism, burqas, polygamy, female circumcision, Sharia law, honor killings, Middle East dictatorships and theocracies, political oppression and religious intolerance, and instead blame such “fictive ethnicities” on imperialism that began with the Greeks [...]
Well, it's more original than blaming the Jews.
