Shibley Telhami is the Anwar Sadat Professor for Peace and Development at the University of Maryland. He is Senior Fellow at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy, Foreign Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has previously served as a professor at Cornell University and Ohio State University, and Lecturer at Columbia University, Princeton University, and the University of Southern California, among others.

Telhami’s expertise on Arab-Israeli conflict, media and political identity, and US policy in the Middle East has resulted in several prominent publications. In his article Arab and Muslim America, published in 2002, Telhami gives a telling portrait of the changing identity of Muslim and Arab Americans and the new challenges of adapting to a suspicious post-9/11 US society. He attempts to rectify the many misunderstandings of such cultures, and explain the unjustified snap racial reactions prominent following the attacks.
