    Rashid Khalidi is an occasional guest on Fareed Zakaria GPS.
    Pundits who have been wrong from the beginning (e.g. Tom Friedman) are regular guests on channels all over the boob tube.
    If you are an Establishment Pundit, being wrong doesn’t hurt your career one little bit.

    Here is an opportunity to listen to Rashid Khalidi lucidly talking about Israel, Palestine, US policy in the Middle East and the peace process. As you will see, there is nothing vitriolic, ideological or prejudicial in his talks. On the contrary, these are well documented, responsible and rational arguments expounded with great authority and scholarship:
