Insightful. Passionate. Connected. These are the core strengths of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET); a Washington, D.C. based think tank with an unabashedly pro-America and pro-Israel stance. EMET (which means truth in Hebrew) prides itself on challenging the falsehoods and misrepresentations that abound in U.S. Middle East policy. The tax-exempt 501(c) 3 organization provides pertinent information to Senators and Members of Congress to make informed decisions that will improve American security and the security of its ally, Israel.
Since its founding in 2005, EMET has devoted uncompromising dedication to factual analysis, no matter how uncomfortable or politically incorrect. EMET provides questions for use in hearings, co-authored Congressional letters to the Executive Branch, and develops other policy products for Senators and Members of Congress. These key differentiators and services have made EMET the “go-to-people” on Capitol Hill for Senators and Members of Congress who understand the importance of a strong America and a strong American-Israeli alliance against the forces of radical Islam and terror.
EMET’s Founder and President, Sarah N. Stern, has had over three decades of experience working with Senators and Members of Congress. She was the National Policy Coordinator for the Zionist Organization for America (1998-2004) and the Director of the Office of Legislative and Governmental Affairs of the American Jewish Congress (2004-2006). Her depth of experience and passion for educating Senators and Members of Congress has shaped EMET into a force to be reckoned with on Capitol Hill.
EMET is the only organization which hosts monthly seminars on current events affecting the Middle East for the benefit of Senators, Members of Congress, their staff, and the general public. EMET builds on the relationships developed at these seminars to provide personal one-on-one educational briefings on relevant issues of concern.
EMET is the voice for those who want to see a strong, secure America working together with a strong, self-sufficient Israel. Potential EMET supporters are those who have been looking for an organization that will challenge the distortions about America and Israel, which are promoted on Capitol Hill by lobbyists heavily funded by Middle East petrodollars.
EMET aims to be the primary resource for those concerned with American and Israel’s security. As EMET continues to grow, it will remain as an essential resource, taking on Middle East issues and challenges that other Pro-Israel organizations do not.
Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank is dedicated to educating the public about what the mainstream media fails to report in promoting:
- Institutions of Democracy and the Rule of Law
- Human Rights
- A free and strong economy
- A military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world
- Energy independence
- Ensuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech.
Gatestone Institute conducts national and international conferences, briefings and events for its members and others, with world leaders, journalists and experts -- analyzing, strategizing, and keeping them informed on current issues, and where possible recommending solutions.
Gatestone Institute will be publishing books, and continues to publish an online daily report, www.gatestoneinstitute.org, that features topics such as military and diplomatic threats to the United States and our allies; events in the Middle East and their possible consequences, and the transparency and accountability of international organizations.
