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. The IDF, in response, struck more than 160 terror targets in the Gaza Strip, including tunnels created by Hamas to use to infiltrate and carry out attacks in Israel, and four military…

“Jews Make the Best Demons: ‘Palestine’ and the Jewish Question”

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…

“Trump’s Palestinian-Israeli Peace Plan: What’s in It, What It Means”

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,…

Must bring government issued ID to get in to the event.  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 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…

Phone Seminar: “Is a Joint US Defense Pact Actually a Good Idea?”

July 10 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Call-In Number (712) 432-0075 Participant Code: 397784   Featuring: Professor Efraim Inbar At EMET's 2019 Rays of Light Dinner on June 12th, Senator Lindsey Graham announced that he aims to have a new US-Israel Defense Treaty voted on by the Senate next year.  Sen. Graham stated that the treaty would show the Islamist regime of Iran that "an existential threat against Israel is an existential threat against the United States."  The Treaty would add Israel to the list of NATO allies which have mutual defense commitments with Israel, and its supporters suggest it would help solidify Israel and America's relationship. While at first blush the Treaty seems beneficial, it has within some inherent pitfalls, and would likely create more problems for the State of Israel. Please join us for a conference call with Professor Efraim Inbar on the proposed US-Israel Defense Treaty, and the number of reasons why the Treaty would, in fact, not be beneficial for the US-Israel relationship.

Three Critical Questions for Israel

October 17 @ 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Senate Building
Free

EMET is honored to host the Award Winning New York Times Best Selling Author about Who is Funding the Illegal Building in Area C of Israel and The Honorable Former Ambassador of Congressional Affairs of the Embassy of Israel Yoram Ettinger, alongside Founder and President of EMET, Sarah Stern, who will be discussing “Three Critical Questions When Examining the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” For the last 26 years, there have been several mantras that have constantly been repeated, over and over again, reflexively and without questioning, that have taken on the aura of  certitude and rigidity within certain foreign policy circles. One is that the Israelis are solely responsible for the illegal building in Judea and Samaria. A second is that Israel cannot remain democracy and a Jewish state unless it quickly withdraws from the disputed territories and makes room for a Palestinian state, and a third is that “land for peace” is an excellent, and the only viable, solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Here to examine these mantras are: The Award…
