Karl Sabbagh was born in Worcestershire, England, during the early 1940s. His father was the Palestinian broadcaster Isa Sabbagh, at the time working for the BBC Arabic Service; his mother, born Pamela Graydon, was English though of American and Irish parentage. His parents divorced soon after he was born, and his father subsequently lived in the United States, but Karl (originally named Khalil after his grandfather) remained in England with his mother.
Sabbagh's 2006 book Palestine interweaves a history of Palestine from the 18th century, with an account of his own family, who were prominent Christian members of Palestinian society in Galilee throughout that period, settled in the town of Safad from at least the beginning of the 19th century. The book includes a critical account of the Zionist settlement and eventual takeover of Palestine in the first half of the 20th century.
