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, Apartheid Monitor, 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.

With the mass demonstrations throughout Turkey showing no sign of abating despite the government’s heavy-handed measures, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan derided the protests as the work of secularist opponents of the ruling Islamist AKP party. “This is a protest organized by extremist elements,” he claimed. “We will not give away anything to those who live arm-in-arm with terrorism.” Meanwhile an apology by Deputy PM Bulent Arinc for the use of excessive force was dismissed by protesters as an insincere ploy to quell public anger.
