About The Middle East Forum
With roots going back to 1990, the Middle East Forum has been an independent tax-exempt 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia since 1994.
MEF promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats.
The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, we urge bold measures to protect Americans and their allies.
In the Middle East, we focus on ways to defeat radical Islam; work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; develop strategies to contain Iran; and deal with the great advances of anarchy.
At home, the Forum emphasizes the danger of lawful Islamism; protects the freedoms of anti-Islamist authors, activists, and publishers; and works to improve Middle East studies.
The Middle East Forum realizes its goals through three main mechanisms:
Campus Speakers Bureau provides knowledgeable speakers capable of relating accurate and balanced information regarding the Middle East and Islam to American university students.
Campus Watch exposes the politicization and biases of Middle East studies in North American universities with the goal to improve them. Its research critiques the teaching and scholarship of academic specialists, bringing the content of their work to the attention of a broader audience.
Conference Calls offer leading analysts discussing topical Middle Eastern and Islamic issues every month. Participation is limited to MEF donors but summaries and audio recordings are posted at MEForum.org.
DanielPipes.org The Forum's president, Daniel Pipes, maintains a website with over three thousand pages of his writings, television transcripts, testimony, and more. Since 2001, DanielPipes.org has received 60 million visits.
Islamist Watch Arguing that violence is not the only, or even the best way to apply Shari'a law, Islamist Watch monitors and exposes the growing influence of non-violent radical Islamist groups in the West while empowering moderate Muslims.
The Middle East Forum has federal tax ID 23-774-9796.
