Warraq points out Said in his fraudulent creation of the concept of "the other", a cliche rammed down the throats of university students around the world, is never used to apply to non-Muslims or even non-Arabs in the Islamic world.

They simply do not exist in the world of Said and his intellectual followers. This loathing of science and the truth and denigration of Western civilization is revealed by an exhibit at the Ontario Science Center at Toronto which gives way to such unbelievable, almost surreal relativism claiming "Modern Western science puts the sun at the center of the solar system.

Warraq takes apart the accepted blaming of only the West for all evils in the world today pointing out that "Europe has been guilty of terrible crimes but what civilization has not been? The massacres of three hundred thousand people in Uganda by Idi Amin or of in Rwanda in The genocide of 1. The crimes of Saddam Hussein, the chemical of the town of Hama by Hafez al Assad in in which 40 people die, and the 2 million people who have died in Iran because of the policies of the Islamic Republic.

Ibn Warraq

Amazon Like so many, I was first introduced to the works of Edward Said in my first year of grad school in a course called "The History of Historical Writing". Armed with a newly-minted BA in History, I felt prepared to embark on my new intellectual journey; I was ready to move beyond simply learning about the past, and was anxious to become further acquainted with the methodological nuance of my discipline and the theoretical framework on which its noble institution was founded. But once the curtain was pulled back and the inner-workings, so carefully hidden before, were at last revealed, I discovered not the functioning unity I had naively anticipated, but instead a fragmented and intellectually divided world marred by opposing camps and rife with internal conflict. Historiography, I had foolishly believed, was simply the study of the evolution of our field; one school of thought refining and adding clarity to the one that came before. Instead, it is a Darwinian struggle where the weak are destroyed and the young ever supplant the old.
