Provide a 6 pages analysis while answering the following question: On Orientalism: An Insight Into The Real Middle East. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. In this essay the researcher discusses the video ‘On Orientalism,’ in which Edward Said has discussed his book ‘orientalism’ and the motivation and essence of the term ‘orientalism’. Said has given excellent references of imperialism, colonialism, News coverage and Hollywood movies to explain how orientalism is used in different mediums to distort the truth about Muslims and the Middle Eastern people. The researcher states that strength of the video is the depth with which Said has discussed the penetration of orientalism in every medium. At the same time, he has also discussed the selfish political motives of the American government in creating fear and threat about the Arabs in the minds of Americans. The in depth analysis of orientalism and the insight of the American motive in creation of American orientalism is the strength of the video. However, the researcher also suggests that it would have strengthened the impact of the analysis if Said had discussed the violence and terrorist acts by the western organization like Ku Klux Klan, civil war between White and Black people, hooliganism etc. This would have shown that terrorism exists not only in Arab countries but also in the US and Europe. However, overall, Edward Said has completely succeeded in developing a feeling of sympathy and understanding towards the people from Middle East and hence, this video can be highly recommended to anyone who desires to know the real Middle East and not just its exotic and majestic part.
