Khaled Abu Toameh

While a large portion- if not majority- of Arab-Israelis are hostile time bombs just waiting to explode, there's always an exception to the rule. Khaled Abu Toameh is a Palestinian Muslim Arab-Israeli journalist who used to write for the PLO, and surprisingly he's one of the most respected voices on the Mid-East conflict. For good reason.

This is an article Toameh recently wrote. I had the fortune to see him speak at our campus. The man is to be commended for his open-mindedness; he brings a healthy and refreshing moderate and unbiased view of the conflict to the table. He focuses not so much on the conflict but more on how Yasser Arafat and the PLO are primarily responsible for the Palestinians' current predicament. His personal experiences in Israel and the Palestinian territories has brought out in him a very unique persepctive on the conflict.
