Edward Said argued the equivalence between Jews and Palestinians as being refugees in foreign culture; he lamented that his people were forced to embrace a monoculture. for 2000 years most of the Jews were attempting to be accepted into Diaspora culture.
More often then not it was the Diaspora that rejected the Jews, not the Jewish community rejecting the diaspora.
Israel has been hoping that the world would accept Jews as equals. I do not see the Palestinian people outside of Palestine attempting as a culture to integrate at all. the equivalence argument is voided because of this. Now it appears even Said and his life is a fiction. I didn't need these facts to argue Edward was a fraud... but history is unfolding as I expected.
