Martin Kramer, Ph.D., is a Senior Fellow at the John M. Olin Institute for Strategic Studies at Harvard University.

On July 10, 2007, Rudolph W. Giuliani announced the "line-up" of his foreign policy team, which included Kramer, Ed Lasky wrote in the American Thinker.[1] Kramer will serve as Senior Middle East Advisor.[2]

"During a twenty-five-year career at Tel Aviv University, he directed the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies. He served twice as a fellow of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington.

"Kramer is the author of the best-selling monograph, Ivory Towers on Sand: The Failure of Middle Eastern Studies in America. He earned his undergraduate and doctoral degrees in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University and another graduate degree from Columbia University."[3]

Kramer "has vast experience in the Middle East and is an authority in Islam and Arab Politics. He is also the Wexler-Fromer Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and a senior fellow at the Shalem Center [in Israel]. He is a strong supporter of the American-Israel relationship, which will help Rudy solidify support among supporters of Israel (many of whom are evangelical Christians who are influential in the GOP). He has also been a leader in exposing the increasing politicization in the Middle East Studies Departments on American campuses - a politicization that has led professors to teach from an anti-American and anti-Israel viewpoint," Lasky wrote.
