Emily Nasrallah's obituary in AP and New York Times

Many of the local Lebanese correspondents of Western media tend to be Western-educated individuals who are not generally deeply rooted in Arabic culture.  For that the AP obituary and this New York Times obituary really missed the point about her.  New York Times writer identified her as an "activist".  She was not really an activist.  What ever soft liberal feminism was gleaned from her novels.
