Edward Said, leading Palestinian advocate, dead at 67

Edward Said’s death caused an outpouring of tributes around the world, including the Electronic Intifada online, which wrote Said had “maintained his relentless engagement with people, culture, and politics all over the world, even in the last weeks of his decade- long struggle against illness”. His supporters said he was often “the sole and most effective advocate” for bringing truth about the Palestinian cause to the United States.
