To discuss the Trump Administration's "peace" plans, EMET is proud to host Gregg Roman, the Director of the Middle East Forum (MEF).  Mr. Roman will also be discussing the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus (CIVC), that the MEF has helped establish on Capitol Hill.  The caucus' goal: to introduce a new U.S. approach to Israel-Palestinian relations. Since 1988, every U.S. administration has invested in Israeli-Palestinian diplomacy, but nearly three decades of failure strongly suggest that Israeli-Palestinian negotiations need rethinking. The caucus calls for a new U.S. approach to…

On July 14, three Arab-Israelis left the Temple Mount, or Haram al-Sharif, as it is known in Arabic, armed with pistols and rifles and shot and killed two Israeli-Druze policemen. Because of this, the Israeli government closed the Temple Mount for a few days to investigate, and had found large stashes of weapons there. PM Netanyahu therefore decided to place metal detectors and cameras at the entrances to and on the Temple Mount. Because of this, large scale rioting broke out among the Palestinians in East Jerusalem. By the time…

Phone Seminar: “Human Rights in Iran” with Manda Zand Ervin

On Sunday, July 16, Iran announced it has sentenced an American graduate student to 10 years on charges he was spying for the United States. This announcement came months after the graduate student disappeared in Iran, where he was doing research for a doctoral thesis at Princeton University. There are at least four other American citizens currently unjustly detained in Iran on unverified charges. This is only one example of Iran’s long list of human rights abuses. The Islamic Republic of Iran places severe restrictions on civil liberties, including the freedoms of assembly, association, speech, religion, academic freedom and press; abuses due process and has the second highest rate of executions, only behind China; has undemocratic elections; and discriminates against women, ethnic and religious minorities and homosexuals. Despite initial optimism that the Rouhani administration may improve Iran’s…

On the sixteenth anniversary of the horrific events of September 11, 2001, the United States and the Western world face the same threat by genocidal Islamic terrorists that were responsible for the death of 3,000 Americans on U.S. soil. Two years after the announcement of the Iran deal, i.e., the JCPOA, the Middle East continues to be on fire.  Contrary to claims by the Obama Administration, the Iran deal did not prompt a more kinder, gentler Iranian regime.  Right now, Iran and its forces dominate Lebanon; are in control of Iraq, according to even the New York Times; are helping the Syrian dictator Assad continue to reclaim his country;…

"State of the Middle East's Economy" featuring Davi Goldman Tuesday, September 26, 2017 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075   Participant Code: 397784 To submit a question for David Goldman, click here. After eight years of weak leadership throughout the world, and mixed up priorities where we punished our allies and rewarded our enemies, the Middle East is aflame and unstable. Hopefully, the new President and Congress will be able to set things right, but to do this, both need to understand the entirety of the situation. This includes one aspect that is often ignored by foreign policy experts; the state of the Middle East's economy.   Israel's economy continues to boom, and the Gulf States continue to have their oil money, but what about some of the other most prominent nations? How is Iran benefiting economically from the hundreds of billions of dollars it received from the Iran deal in frozen funds and sanctions relief? How is Turkey, which has few natural resources, such as oil…

Following the Kurdish independence referendum held on September 25, Kurds faced strong pressure from regional states, Iran, Iraq, and Turkey to nullify the results or face a blockade. The Kurdish government in northern Iraq was also pressured by the United States and international powers to postpone the referendum. Kurdish government led by Masoud Barzani ignored such calls, went ahead with the referendum, the result was 92.7% approval. However, Kurds faced harsh backlash just weeks after the referendum. Iraqi security forces (ISF) along with the Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) an Iranian proxy, entered Kurdish held territories including Kirkuk an oil rich province. The ISF and PMU continued to advance into Kurdish territories, below the 2004 lines agreed upon with the United States. As of now Kurds have lost all disputed territories reclaimed during the fight against the…

“The BDS Movement’s Impact on the Palestinians & Israelis”

November 13 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

EMET & StandWithUs Invite you to: "The BDS Movement's Impact on Palestinians & Israelis" Featuring: Yahya Mahamid RSVP here Monday, November 13, 2017 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Rayburn House Office Building Room 2237 Washington, D.C. Lunch to be served. All dietary laws observed. For those of you who are unable to attend, please watch LIVE on EMET's Facebook page! The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement is an international anti-Israel movement that seeks to delegitimize and ultimately destroy the State of Israel by using political and economic warfare and false accusations. The BDS movement uses gross lies to demonize the Jewish State of Israel – such as by wrongly comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa – to win activists on its side. Yet the movement is inherently anti-peace, while opposed to any type of negotiations with Israel or Israelis, even if it is for the benefit of the Palestinians, and often uses-anti-Semitic tactics to delegitimize and undermine Israel’s existence as a sovereign state. While the BDS movement claims to support the interests of…
