Why am I not surprised he wrote "The Arab Image." He's all about images and discourses, I suspect. His e-mail is there to, but I don't post that stuff. :)
All known academic harbors for issuing worthless 'politcally-correct' paper degrees to the third-world radicals, and not correcting their disturbed world-view with honest history.
