Historian Walid Khalidi discussed recent developments in Middle Eastern politics in the context of the history of the region. While discussing the relationship between Palestine, Israel, and the United States he called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the most dangerous leader in the world and criticized the U.S. policy of “no daylight” with Israel saying it enhances Israel’s sense of “entitlement and license.” He said he believes that it has larger consequences, re-enforcing the notion of American complicity in Arab minds. He responded to questions from members of the audience at the Carnegie Conference Center at this event of the Middle East Institute. close
