Everyday, we as Americans are confronted with a barrage of information from different groups, especially when it comes to Israel and Jewish Americans. The most common question that we receive is: “What Is The Difference Between You and The Other Jewish Organizations? Aren’t They All The Same?“
The misinformation put forth by the Main Stream Media about Israel, Jews, and Zionism is a challenge that our tribe has not experienced in the United States before since World War II. Our fight is a multi-front approach where most of the Jewish organizations contribute in the war against Anti-Semitism.
But among the groups, EMET stands out with our specialty. Our primary mission is to educate Congress about the Truth on key issues to the survival of Israel and the Jewish people. Some of these key differences between EMET and others include:
EMET is here to provide in-depth research and analyses which challenges misrepresentations about the Middle East and the nature of the US-Israel relationship. We develop close working relationships with Senators and Representatives and provide them with the up-to-date information and analysis they need while combating other interest groups that influence Congress with misrepresentations about Israel and the Middle East. We provide fact-based briefings to our nation’s policymakers, their staff, and the public-at-large.
EMET provides weekly webinars to educate the general public, legislators, and their staff. We are on Capitol Hill virtually every day, meeting with Senators, Members of Congress, and their staffers to educate them on issues important to the security of the United States, Israel, and the Middle East. Our webinars, briefings, articles, and analyses never shy away from important topics, even if the facts point to conclusions that challenge long-held assumptions about how the Middle East operates.
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 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 continue to work with Congress to bring oversight to the DOJ, and ensure that all Americans receive the justice they deserve. Today, EMET briefs legislators and their staffers on contemporary geopolitical shifts in the Middle East including the Tehran-Riyadh Peace Agreement and what it means for Israel and the United States. Additionally, a large percentage of our time is allotted to initiatives combatting the rise of domestic antisemitism in the United States and other issues important to the Jewish community.
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.”
