A Tribute to Abdelwahab Elmessiri of Palestine

Palestine : Opinion/Editorial:

ON LIFE, LITERATURE AND PALESTINE, A TRIBUTE TO ABDELWAHAB ELMESSIRI
By Aslam Farouk-Alli, The Electronic Intifada, 4 August 2008

Abdelwahab Elmessiri passed away on Thursday, 3 July, in
the Palestine Hospital in Cairo at the age of 70. There is
a befittingly poetic resonance about the name of this
hospital — the place of his final struggle — when one
considers that Elmessiri had devoted almost his entire
intellectual career to the defense of the Palestinian
cause. Aslam Farouk-Alli remembers the life of the
Egyptian writer and political thinker.
