Background Articles and Videos

Fouad A. Ajami

Fouad A. Ajami (Arabic: فؤاد عجمي‎; born September 9, 1945), is a MacArthur Fellowship winning, Lebanese-born American university professor and writer on Middle Eastern issues. In recent years, Ajami has been an outspoken supporter of the Iraq War, the nobility of which he believes there “can be no doubt”.[1] This view has drawn some criticism from others in academia.

Personal
Ajami was born on September 19, 1945, in Arnoun, a rocky hamlet in the south of Lebanon. His Shiite family had come to Arnoun from Tabriz, Iran in the 1850s. In Arabic, the word “Ajam” means “non-Arab” or, more specifically, “Persian”.

Ajami arrived in the United States in the fall of 1963, just before he turned 18. He did some of his undergraduate work at Eastern Oregon College (now Eastern Oregon University) in La Grande, Oregon. He did his graduate work at the University of Washington, where he wrote his thesis on international relations and world government.

 Career
 Academia
In 1973 Ajami joined the political science department of Princeton University where he did not get tenure. He made a name for himself there as a vocal supporter of Palestinian self-determination.

He is today the Majid Khadduri professor in Middle East Studies and Director of the Middle East Studies Program at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of Johns Hopkins University.

 Government
Ajami has been an advisor to United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as well as a friend and colleague of Paul Wolfowitz.[2]

 Journalism
Ajami is a frequent contributor on Middle Eastern issues and contemporary international history to The New York Times Book Review, Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, and other journals and periodicals, as well.

 Television
Ajami frequently appears on PBS and CBS News.
