Welcome to Daringopinion.com
The Website of Elie Elhadj
In naming my Website Daring Opinion, I shall provide bold unabashed realpolitik analysis and answers to sensitive questions relating to the cultures and religions, politics and reform prospects in the Arab Middle East.
Harold Pinter, in his Nobel Prize for Literature inaugural lecture in December 2005, described the conflict between politicians and revealing the truth:
"The majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed."
