Who are the Palestinians?

Oct 01, 2014

Rashid Khalidi is Professor of Middle East History, Director of the Center for
International Studies at the University of Chicago, author of Palestinian Identity and a former Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

The Balfour Declaration which established the British mandate over Palestine did not even mention the Palestinians as people. That non-recognition is emblematic of the difficulties they have faced in trying to achieve a self-identity that would support political self-government. Yet Palestinian identity is a fact. Rashid Khalidi depicts its historic roots and current expression.
