Since 9/11, al-Qaeda and other Islamist terror groups have struck the U.S. multiple times, in Boston, MA, San Bernardino, CA, and in Orlando, FL, among other places.  Some of the terrorists involved in these attacks first became radicalized through the efforts of the Islamist group called the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).  The MB, which originated in Egypt, seeks to establish a worldwide Islamic Caliphate, and advocates for violent terrorism.  It has spread its tentacles throughout the world, including to the U.S., where it has a number of front groups including…

Rayburn House Office Bldg Washington, DC 20515 United States + Google Map

The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) Invites You to a Seminar on Capitol Hill: "Looking Back After 25 Years: Lessons to be Learned from the Oslo Accords" Featuring Guest Speakers: Friday, October 5, 2018 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Rayburn House Office Building Room 2045 Washington, D.C. Lunch to be provided. All dietary laws observed. For those of you who are unable to attend, please watch LIVE on EMET's Facebook page! RSVP September 13th marked a quarter of a century since the signing of the Oslo Accords on the White House Lawn. When the accords were signed, Israel agreed to the “land for peace” formulation, wherein the Israelis were to give up something very real and tangible - strategic territory - in exchange for empty words and promises. The "land for peace" paradigm has sorely failed. Israel's efforts towards peace since Olso, including the Hebron Agreement, the Wye River Accords, Taba, the Camp David Summit, and the painful, unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005, were only met with increased terrorism. The Palestinian…

Phone Seminar: “The Disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi”

October 16, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The Endowment for Middle East Truth invites you to: "The Disappearance and Probable Murder of Jamal Khashoggi" Call-In Number (712) 432-0075 Participant Code: 397784 Recently, Jamal Khashoggi, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and a resident of the U.S., walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, intending to get paperwork that would allow him to marry his Turkish fiancée. He hasn't been seen in public since. Khashoggi was a former Saudi royal insider who became a critic of the current Saudi leadership, especially Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. In the U.S., Khashoggi became a columnist for the Washington Post. Saudi Arabia has claimed that Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed. However, Turkish authorities claim they have audio and visual evidence that shows Jamal Khashoggi was tortured and killed inside the consulate in Istanbul. According to CNN, a foreign intelligence service has found the nature of the evidence, which was provided in a briefing from Turkish officials, to be "shocking and disgusting." The Washington Post has reported of that evidence…

“The Jamal Khashoggi Affair as a Backdrop to the Regional Power Play in the Middle East”

November 20, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) Invites You to a Seminar on Capitol Hill: "The Jamal Khashoggi Affair as a Backdrop to the Regional Power Play in the Middle East” U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center Room: SVC 203-02 Washington, D.C. Lunch to be provided. All dietary laws observed. For those of you who are unable to attend, please watch LIVE on EMET's Facebook page! RSVP The murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi has drawn renewed attention to the systemic human rights abuses that pervade Saudi Arabia and the region. Notwithstanding Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s reputation as a reformer, he continues to preside over a repressive regime that denies fundamental rights to its people. At the same time, Saudi rivals like Turkey and Iran brutally suppress dissent even as they criticize Riyadh for engaging in similar conduct. Indeed, the murder of Khashoggi has provided Turkey’s strongman Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the world’s top jailer of journalists, an opportunity to revamp his tarnished image by presenting himself as a champion of press freedoms and human rights. The Turkish…

While the majority of rockets fell into open territory, others fell into Sderot, Ashkelon, and other Gaza border communities, resulting in the death of a 48-year-old Palestinian man, and more than 50 people injured.

December 19, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The Endowment for Middle East Truth invites you to a Phone Seminar: "Jews Make the Best Demons: 'Palestine' and the Jewish Question" Wednesday, December 19th, 2018 12:00pm - 1:00p.m. (Eastern Time) Call-In Number (712) 432-0075 Participant Code: 397784    Featured guest speaker:  Eric Rozenman   Shortly before murdering 11 Jews at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, the accused killer posted online that “Jews are the spawn of Satan” and derided the United States as “Z.O.G.”—Zionist-occupied government. A few days after the mass murder, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan reinforced his high-profile antisemitism—bigotry some members of Congress and members-elect have difficulty rejecting—by again denouncing “Satanic Jews” and “devilish Zionists.” On October 22, New English Review Press published Eric Rozenman’s new book, Jews Make the Best Demons: “Palestine” and the Jewish Question. In it Rozenman, now at the Washington, D.C.-based Jewish Policy Center and former editor of B’nai B’rith’s International Jewish Monthly and of the Washington Jewish Week, spotlights how anti-Zionism has become the gateway drug for resurgent antisemitism. He also demonstrates the…

February 7 @ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Endowment for Middle East Truth invites you to a Capitol Hill Seminar: "Trump's Palestinian-Israeli Peace Plan: What's in It, What It Means" Thursday, February 7, 2019 12:00pm - 1:00p.m. (Eastern Time)0 US Capitol Visitor's Center Featured guest speakers: RSVP HERE Ever since he was elected, President Trump has told us that he has a long awaited “Ultimate Deal” to finally bring peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Rumors and speculation abound about what exactly is in the details. We have seen that certainly since the administration of President Bill Clinton, each president, and several Israeli Prime Ministers have tried to offer the Palestinians progressively more and more land, and each time the Palestinians have walked away from the table, only to be met with a renewed round of violence. However, one cannot be too certain that the Palestinians will continue to follow this pattern of rejecting the offer that an Israeli Prime Minister might make and an American President might mediate. What precisely is and is not in the details,…

RSVP HERE Israel acts as America's linchpin in the Middle East, serving as a source of stability and strength in the increasingly volatile region. Ever since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the Jewish State has been a natural ally of the US; it is the only Democracy in the Middle East, shares the same Western values, and has many of the same national security interests. Both Israel and America are in a fight against radical Islam, are working to oppose the hegemonic Iranian ambitions in the Middle East, and seek to curb the spread of Islamic terrorism. Israel provides significant intelligence to the U.S., and its strategic location has been vital for…
