6.8.05 Kosher nostra  

Edward Said (R.I.P.) has been a hero of mine since my only partially regretted Foucaultian salad days. It was thru him (& later thru Jackie du Pre's Elgar) that I came across Daniel Barenboim, with whom he conceived the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. From a recent piece in the Telegraph: "Their idea was to demonstrate that, through music, it is possible for people from warring factions to co-exist peacefully." Why isn't this idea--music as instrument of reconciliation--being taken outside Jerusalem?
