It's useful to know that Rashid Khalidi, (President Obama's erstwhile friend), was Prof. AbuKhalil's "teacher and mentor for undergraduate and graduate years at AUB".
And another useful insight from the prof. from California, entrusted with the teaching and molding the minds of young American students:
"what I like about Khalidi* (and about Edward Said) is that they became less moderate with age. We should all become less moderate with age."
*The Khalidi he refers to in the second quote is Walid Khalidi.
