an arab intellectual slams amartya sen

apr 25th

fouad ajami is if i am not mistaken of lebanese origin. here's a cruel
review of sen's new book 'idiocy and vacuousness', oops... 'identity and
violence'.

i havent read the book, but i can imagine what it would be all about,
based on sen's prior writing
1. islam = good, marxism = good
2. other religions = not so good
3. hinduism = bad

the usual nehruvian claptrap.

so now sen wants to be the anti-huntington. good luck, old chap, in this
post-9/11 world. your timing is slightly off.

This is funny. Not even the muslims are buying into
Amartya's fabrications -
