Harold Saunders

Harold Saunders was not an Arabist, by the way. His PhD is in American studies and he did not know Arabic.  But Saunders was like some US diplomats who would criticize Israel in private and praise it in public.  I heard him criticize Israel in private while in public he would say this: "Mr. Saunders later said that he had come to realize how difficult it would be for Israel to withdraw from the occupied West Bank."
