"biliniz ki dünya hayatı bir oyun, bir eğlence, bir süs ve kendi aranızda övünme, mal ve evlat çoğaltma yarışından ibarettir. bu, tıpkı bir yağmura benzer ki bitirdiği ot, ekincilerin hoşuna gider; sonra kurur, onu sapsarı görürsün, sonra çerçöp olur.(...)" (57/20)
o zaman... "senin İsmail'in kim?"

Happy barfday to a miserable racist curmudgeon whose fears of the "other" gave birth to some magnificent fiction. of course the tendency is to want to separate art from artist, but here the two are inextricably linked. i don't think there's an answer to the struggle. i do think we need to stop being apologists for his extremism, especially if we are to defend his work as having relevance and value today. certainly his grotesque viewpoints resonate with the contemporary right wing. i think admitting to this makes his work more meaningful, not less. and i feel that disagreeing with his execrable values only deepens the complex horror of his tales.
