Founded in 2005, The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is a Washington, D.C. based think tank and policy center with an unabashedly pro-America and pro-Israel stance. EMET (which means truth in Hebrew) prides itself on challenging the falsehoods and misrepresentations that abound in U.S. Middle East policy.
As a tax-exempt 501(C) 3 Non-Profit organization we work to educate policy-makers by providing pertinent information to Senators and Members of Congress to make informed decisions that will improve American security and the security of America’s ally, Israel. EMET earned its reputation as the “go-to-people” on Capitol Hill for Senators and Members of Congress who understand the importance of a strong and secure America, and a strong American-Israeli alliance against the forces of radical Islam and terror.
EMET provides research and analysis which challenges misrepresentations and never bows to political correctness. EMET develops close working relationships with Senators and Members of Congress, and provides them with the information and analysis they need, while combating efforts by other interest groups to influence Congress with misrepresentations about Israel and the Middle East. EMET provides fact-based briefings to Senators, Members of Congress, their staff, and the general public.
EMET is the only organization which provides monthly seminars for the education of Senators, Members of Congress, their staff, and the general public. Our seminars, briefings, articles and analysis never shy away from important topics, even if the facts point to conclusions which are unpopular or politically incorrect.
Investing in EMET means supporting a young organization, which is lean, intelligent, dedicated and capable. Nothing is wasted on bloated bureaucracy or cushy Washington D.C. real estate. Supporting EMET means getting your contribution directly to the front lines of the War of Ideas, where it matters the most.
EMET was educating Congress on the Palestinian Authority’s blatant and repeated violations of the Oslo Accords while other organizations were busy drawing up detailed maps of the next territory Israel should surrender in the failed “Land-for-Peace” paradigm. EMET was the first organization to call for an end to military aid to Egypt during the chaos of the Arab Spring, while other Pro-Israel groups were lobbying for MORE weapons and MORE money for the increasingly radicalized and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egyptian Government. EMET was the first organization to confront the failure of the Department of Justice to investigate, indict and extradite Palestinian terrorists who have slain or injured American citizens, despite federal laws which demand such efforts. We’re working with Congress right now to bring oversight to the DOJ, and insure that all Americans receive the justice they deserve.
With our newsletters, containing a weekly summary of the events and opinions that are shaping the Middle East, EMET has the ability to reach over 11,000 subscribers, including hundreds of Congressional staff, government officials and embassy staff, along with thousands of activists’, community leaders and VIPs. One Congressman has called the EMET Memoranda “required reading” for his staff. This outreach capability enables EMET to deliver vital action alerts to a motivated and capable grassroots so that, to paraphrase President Reagan, “When we can’t make them see the light, we can make them feel the heat.”
