Osamah Khalil Osamah Khalil, associate professor of history, was interviewed for the Pacific Standard article, "Does Trump Want Peace in the Middle East?" "The Trump administration's decision on Jerusalem is the culmination of U.S. foreign policy toward the Palestinians over the past seven decades," says Khalil. "Although the U.S. and Israel claim they favor a peaceful settlement and the eventual creation of a Palestinian state through negotiations, their actions ensure that it will not be achieved." 12/14/17
