Areas of research

Khalidi’s research covers primarily the history of the modern Middle East. He focuses on the countries of the southern and eastern Mediterranean, with an eye to the emergence of various national identities and the role played by external powers in their development. He also researches the impact of the press on forming new senses of community, the role of education in the construction of political identity, and in the way narratives have developed over the past centuries in the region.[2] Map of the Middle East. ...

The Mediterranean Sea is an intercontinental sea positioned between Europe to the north, Africa to the south and Asia to the east, covering an approximate area of 2. ...

Much of Khalidi's scholarly work in the 1990s focused on the historical construction of nationalism in the Arab world. Drawing on the work of theorists Benedict Anderson who described nations as "imagined communities", he does not posit primordial national identities, but clearly argues that these nations have legitimacy and rights. In Palestinian Identity: The Construction of Modern National Consciousness (1997), he places the emergence of Palestinian national identity in the context of Ottoman and British colonialism as well as the early Zionist effort in the Levant. This book won the Middle East Studies Association’s Albert Hourani Prize as best book of 1997.[5] His dating of Palestinian national emergence to the early 20th century and his tracing of its contours provide a rejoinder to Israeli nationalist claims that Palestinians either do not exist, or had no collective claims prior to the 1948 creation of Israel. Nevertheless, Khalidi is also careful to focus on the late development, failings and internal divisions within the various elements of the Palestinian nationalist movement as well.

In Resurrecting Empire: Western Footprints and America's Perilous Path in the Middle East (2004), Khalidi takes readers on a historical tour of Western intervention in the Middle East, and argues that these interventions continue to have a colonialist nature that is both morally unacceptable and likely to backfire.

Views on "occupation"

Khalidi's critics have pointed to the legitimacy of facts used in his statements. In an interview on PBS, Khalidi used the term "occupied" in reference to Mandatory Palestine in 1948, saying "about half of it was occupied by Israel (which under UNGA 181 was supposed to obtain roughly 55% of Mandate Palestine, and which by the time of the armistice had taken control of about 78%, including half of what was to have been the Arab state)... the remainder was, as you say, under Egyptian and Jordanian control from 1948-1967."[7]

A New York Sun editorial criticized Khalidi for stating that there is a legal right under international law for Palestinians to resist Israeli occupation.[8] For example, in a speech given to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Khalidi said that “[k]illing civilians is a war crime. It’s a violation of international law. They are not soldiers. They’re civilians, they’re unarmed. The ones who are armed, the ones who are soldiers, the ones who are in occupation, that's different. That's resistance.”[8][9] The Sun editorial argued that by failing to distinguish between Palestinian combatants and noncombatants, Khalidi implies that all Palestinians have this right to resist, which it argued was incorrect under international law.[8] In an interview discussing this editorial, however, Khalidi objected to this characterization.[8] The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is a grassroots civil rights organization open to all regardless of background, faith and ethnicity committed to defending the rights of people of Middle Eastearn descent and promoting their rich cultural heritage. ...

Dispute over PLO connections

In the 1980s, Khalidi's alleged associations with Palestinian organizations, such as the Palestinian News Agency came under scrutiny; the PNA had connections to the PLO[10]. Khalidi served in 1991 on the "guidance committee" at the Madrid Conference, which because of Israeli objections did not include people directly associated with the PLO, but included some, including Faisal Husseini, Hanan Ashrawi and Sari Nusseibeh, who were in communication with it. During the conference, Khalidi was quoted as stating, “[w]e had political decisions to make and diplomatic strategy to decide.” On another occasion at Madrid, he was quoted by the press saying, “[w]e want this process to succeed and if doesn't we don't want it to be our fault.”[11] The Madrid Conference was hosted by the government of Spain and co-sponsored by the USA and the USSR. It convened on October 30, 1991 and lasted for three days. ... Faisal Husseini Faisal Abdel Qader Al-Husseini (Arabic: فيصل عبدالقادر الحسيني) (July 17, 1940 - May 31, 2001) was a Palestinian politician who was considered a possible future leader of the Palestinian people. ... Hanan Ashrawi Dr. Hanan Daoud Khalil Ashrawi (born 8 October 1946 in Ramallah, Palestine) is a Palestinian Anglican scholar and political activist. ... Sari Nusseibeh Sari Nusseibeh (born in 1949), is a Palestinian professor of philosophy and president of the Al-Quds University in Jerusalem (Al Quds is the Arabic name for Jerusalem). ...

Khalidi denies having spoken for the PLO, saying “I often spoke to journalists in Beirut, who usually cited me without attribution as a well-informed Palestinian source. If some misidentified me at the time, I am not aware of it.”[11] Khalidi's alleged PLO ties came into the news because of his ties to the Obama campaign when John Batchelor accused Khalidi of having been "a paycheck-receiving PLO agent when it was formally named as a terrorist organization." [12] For other persons named John Batchelor, see John Batchelor (disambiguation). ...

Reception in the world

In 2005 Professor Khalidi was barred from participating in a teacher training program in the New York City Public Schools because of his political views. The Board of Education statement read: "Considering his past statements, Rashid Khalidi should not have been included in a program that provided professional development for [Department of Education] teachers and he won't be participating in the future."
