uris has died

Leon Uris is dead. Uris is best-known for his novel Exodus (which was made into a movie directed by Otto Preminger and starring Paul Newman). The portrayal of Arabs in Exodus and The Haj (primitive, “noble savages,” etc.) earned Uris few friends among Arabs, but otherwise the novels were hugely successful.
