Leading Palestinian Intellectual: U.S. Was Never a Fair Broker of Israeli-Palestinian Peace

I am just as pessimistic as Rashid Khalidi about the prospects for peace. But I had a hard time reading his new book, since it showed, once again, how catastrophic the settlement policy has been not only for Palestinians, but also for Israel.

Last week in New York I had breakfast with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian intellectual who has written extensively on the development of Palestinian identity and served as an advisor to the Palestinian delegation to the negotiations with Israel and the U.S. from 1991 to 1993.
