[Marxism] Nasrallah interview faked ?

The odd thing about the original web site is that it is only
in English. And there is no link to a Turkish (or any other
language) web site. Does Louis have an explanation for this?

I have no inside information on the Nasrallah interview. I
AM a regular 
reader of the Angry Arab (As'ad), and I know his style.
While he's amusing 
and often informative, you definitely have to take his
"proclamations" with 
a grain of salt. He has absolutely no particular information
which would 
shed any light on whether the interview is real or not; his
"judgment" is 
based strictly on what he "thinks" Nasrallah would say.
Furthermore, if he 
was referencing only the CounterPunch reprint of the review,
he may not have 
been able to see the article in the context of its actual
(http://www.emep.org/girisen.htm or 
http://www.emep.org/docs/press/nasral.html), since
CounterPunch didn't even 
link to the original.

I'm not declaring the interview real or fake, although to
me, looking at it 
in the context of the original source, it appears real. I am
declaring that 
As'ad's assertions are to be taken with the largest possible
grain of salt.
