ARTICLES

After Jerusalem, the US Can No Longer Pretend to Be an Honest Broker of Peace

But that might not be a bad thing.

Trump’s error on Jerusalem is a disaster for the Arab world … and the US too

The president’s foolish move in recognising the city as the capital of Israel will have negative consequences impossible to predict.

The United States Was Responsible for the 1982 Massacre of Palestinians in Beirut

Washington had explicitly guaranteed their safety—and recently declassified documents reveal that US diplomats were told by the Israelis what they and their allies might be up to.

The Israeli-American Hammer-Lock on Palestine

Israel’s occupation is only made possible by unquestioning US support—but a day of reckoning is on the way.

Why Donald Trump's 'Arab Nato' would be a terrible mistake

This planned Sunni coalition would alienate Shia populations and Iran. How can it be in the national interest of the US to support one side in a sectarian conflict?

Trump’s Middle East ‘Deal’ Leaves Out One Vital Player: Palestinians.

In plotting a decidedly lopsided “one-state solution,” Trump and Netanyahu are following an old and exclusionary script.

The Middle East 'peace process' was a myth. Donald Trump ended it

The final interment of the already moribund ‘two-state solution’ would force all concerned to face what is obvious to any honest observer.

Palestine in the Age of Trump

In their new context, the Palestinians face stark choices.

John Kerry's two-state plan still falls short in solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Kerry made another push for peace in the Middle East, but the whole discourse gives Israel the upper hand.

John Kerry and Israel: Too Little and Too Late

What is clear is that the Netanyahu government will never willingly endorse a peaceful and fair resolution of this conflict.

The US Elections, Attacks on Activists, and a Changing Discourse

In his 2013 book Brokers of Deceit : How the U.S. Has Undermined Peace in the Middle East , Al-Shabaka Policy Advisor Rashid Khalidi identified three main patterns that have characterized United States policy towards the conflict since 1948: The complaisance of Arab rulers that need US support against their own peoples; presidential solicitude for domestic constituencies; and...

Beyond Abbas and Oslo

The Oslo Accords have been a disaster for Palestinians and a boon to those who wish to maintain Israel’s nearly half-century-old occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza.

Iran One of Washington’s Best Assets in its Fight against ISIS

This is an edited translation of the original French interview that appeared in Orient XXI on 3 August 2015.

Unwavering Support of Israel Harms U.S. Interests, Encourages Extremism

This article originally appeared in the New York Times' Room for Debate on 6 August 2014. The blatant partiality of the United States in favor of Israel has already turned the words “peace process” into a bitter joke. Over many decades, American indulgence of Israel has blighted prospects of any resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians. Consequently, occupation has...

Collective Punishment in Gaza

This article originally appeared on the New Yorker on 29 July 2014.

When It Comes to Israel, America Has Shown Which Side It’s On

T his article originally appeared on the New York Times' Room for Debate on 24 August 2012. Israelis know it. Palestinians know it. The whole world knows it. The absence of any American sense of fair play where Palestinian-Israeli issues are concerned is no secret. In fact, it will keep the U.S. from ever being a disinterested intermediary in the Middle East. Administrations...

This interview originally appeared on al Shabaka on 19 December 2011. Victor Kattan: What did you think about the Palestinian strategy to become a member state of the United Nations?

This article was originally posted on The Hill on 15 November 2011. Dennis Ross has finally left the building. Since the Carter administration, Ross has played a crucial role in crafting Middle East policies that have prolonged and exacerbated the more than six-decade conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. His efforts contributed significantly to the growth in the number...

The Palestinians' Next Move

This article originally appeared on The National Interest on 30 September 2011. As the dust settles after last week’s “showdown” at the United Nations over the Palestinian application for membership, several initial conclusions can be drawn. First, the United States now is thoroughly out of touch with most of the international community when it comes to Palestine and Israel...

Opposing View: Palestinians Need An Honest Broker

This article originally appeared on USA Today on 22 September 2011. Let us start from the beginning: Is there a Middle East "peace process," and what has the process achieved for Palestinians? This is a process that in 20 years of negotiations (since Madrid in October 1991) has produced a tripling of the number of Israeli settlers in the occupied territories, from 200,000 to...

Israel Needs to Realize the Middle East Has Changed

This article originally appeared on the New York Times' Room for Debate 15 September 2011. There are only two genuine threats to Israel’s survival. One is its continued subjugation of the Palestinian people. The other is its failure to realize that it lives in a very different Middle East from that of Herzl or Weizmann or Ben-Gurion. That was a region dominated by outside...

Even by the usually craven standards of Congress, which applauds any and all Israeli actions, this...

The Freedom-Seekers America Ignores

This article originally appeared on Salon on 14 August 2011. Once again Israel is doing its utmost to block Palestinian aspirations for self-determination, unleashing its diplomats in order to obstruct Palestinian efforts to secure some semblance of statehood and freedom at the United Nations this September. Meanwhile, the U.S. and other powers have nothing meaningful to add...

Human Dignity in Jerusalem

This article originally appeared on Jadaliyya on 5 July 2011. [Gravestone broken by Israeli bulldozers on night of June 25-26, 2011.

For several lengthy periods, such as most of the nineteenth century, a spirit of...

On the Possible Recognition of a Palestinian State at the UN

This article o riginally appeared on Jadaliyya on 28 June 28 2011. There is much interest in what will happen regarding Palestine at the United Nations in September. Contrary to much of what has been written on this subject, this is not a matter of “declaring” Palestinian statehood. The PLO already declared the independence of Palestine in 1988. Like many things in life, this...

How Obama Enables Israel's Worst Impulses

This article originally appeared on Salon 27 May 2011. The old Arabic proverb has it that the dogs bark but the caravan goes on.

However, the...

A Good Week for Bibi, a Bad Week for Barack, an Opportunity for the Palestinians

This article originally appeared on Jadaliyya on 26 May 2011. The past week in Washington was an extraordinary one. It witnessed an American president give two speeches in which he offered further concessions to Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of a country that is a client of the United States. Netanyahu challenged the President from the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue,...

An End to the Status Quo in the Israel-Palestinian Conflict

This article originally appeared on the New York Times' Room for Debate on 18 May 2011. If ever there were a moment in the Middle East for a president to ignore the beltway circuit of policy advisers who have misled countless administrations, this is it. The real question is not whether President Obama needs another envoy to the Middle East. It is whether the United States can...

Preliminary Historical Observations on the Arab Revolutions of 2011

This article originally appeared on the Jadaliyya on 21 March 2011. Towards the end of his long, eventful life, in 1402, the renowned Arab historian Ibn Khaldun was in Damascus. He left us a description of Taymur’s siege of the city and of his meeting with the world conqueror. None of us is Ibn Khaldun, but any Arab historian today watching the Arab revolutions of 2011 has the...

The Arab Spring

This article originally appeared on The Nation on 3 March 2011. Suddenly, to be an Arab has become a good thing.

Reflections on the Revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt

The article originally appeared on Foreign Policy on 24 February 2011. This is above all a moment of new possibilities in the Arab world, and indeed in the entire Middle East.

No Chance of Peace With Settlements Around

This article orignally appeared on the New York Times' Room for Debate on 2 September 2010.
