Phone Seminar: The Truth from Jerusalem

December 29, 2016 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Phone Seminar: The Truth from Jerusalem  Featuring Ambassador Yoram Ettinger Thursday, December 29, 2016 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075 Participant Code: 397784 Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a scathing attack on the State of Israel in a speech he delivered Wednesday, during which he defended the United States' decision not to veto the anti-Israel United Nations resolution condemning the "settlements," and blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Kerry's speech, which lasted more than an hour, was filled with false accusations against the Jewish State, including his remark that "If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both, and it won't ever really be at peace." His words come on the heels of the US reversing decades-long policy of vetoing diplomatic moves against Israel at the United Nations. To what extent has Kerry's speech, and last Friday's anti-Israel UN resolution, impacted US-Israel relations? What are the political and legal ramifications of the UN resolution? Should we expect…

RSVP Here Coffee, tea and pastries to be served. All dietary laws observed. Please direct any questions to Deanne at dheffernan@emetonline.org The anti-Israel United Nations Security Council Resolution passed last month was a demonization of the Jewish State. In addition to the many fallacies within it, the resolution seeks to deny the Jewish connection to the capitol of the State of Israel - Jerusalem - and rewrite history by referring to East Jerusalem as "occupied Palestinian territory." The UN has a long history of singling out the Jewish State, and denying the Jewish and Christian connect to the land. In October 2016, UNESCO, the U.N.'s Education, Scientific…

The United States should defund and withdraw form the United Nations and reconstitute the movement to achieve world peace for all…

Phone Seminar: “Impact of the Turkish Referendum”

April 26 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Phone Conference, Washington, DC 20007 United States + Google Map

Featuring: Dr. Aykan Erdemir Wednesday, April 26, 2017 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075  Participant Code: 397784 Submit a question for Dr. Erdemir Erdogan's powers. Unofficial results, which the Turkish opposition has said it would challenge on the basis of fraud, showed a narrow victory with 51.4 percent of votes cast in favor of the changes. The new powers to the Turkish presidency are vast, including the ability to: 1) appoint judges without input from parliament; 2) issue decrees with the force of law; 3) dissolve parliament; 4) have the sole prerogative over all senior appointments in the bureaucracy; and 4) exercise exclusive control of the armed forces. This will create a system with few checks on the President, as head of state, and also the head of government. This referendum is the just the latest example of Recep Erdogan's work, since he first became Prime Minister of Turkey in 2002, to make Turkey an Islamist nation that he could rule. On July 15th, 2016, in response to a Turkish…

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…
