The Middle East Forum, a Philadelphia-based think tank, works to define and promote American interests in the Middle East and protect Western values from Middle Eastern threats. It does this in three main ways:
- Intellectually: Through the Middle East Quarterly, staff writings, lectures and conference calls, the Forum provides context, insights, and policy recommendations.
- Operationally: The Forum exerts an active influence through its projects, including Campus Watch, Islamist Watch, the Legal Project, the Washington Project, and the Shillman/Ginsburg Writing Fellowship Program.
- Philanthropically: The Forum distributes nearly $1.5 million annually through its Education Fund, helping researchers, writers, investigators, and activists around the world.

In the Spotlight:
On Nov. 24, the six world powers and Iran signed an interim agreement to temporarily lift some sanctions on Iran in exchange for tighter international inspection of its nuclear facilities. While President Obama praised the agreement for having "halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program," Iran's President Rouhani said that the deal recognized Tehran's "right" to an enrichment program, and Iran's Foreign Minister Zarif declared that "all Iran's nuclear sites will go on their normal activities" and that "none of Iran's nuclear programs would stop."
