The Middle East Forum seeks a DC-based intern to assist with research and reporting on issues related to its Israel Victory Project.

Israel Victory Project

Peace is only achieved when one side wins and one side loses. Until then, conflict and suffering continue. While the Oslo Accords aimed to chart a new path, that path has resulted in utter failure. It is time for a new approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and it begins with supporting efforts that encourage Israeli victory while pressuring the Palestinian side to accept defeat in its objective of destroying the Jewish state.

In Washington, the Israel Victory engages in research, dissemination, and activism in the think-tank community, pro-Israel community and on Capitol Hill to educate those that seek to promote resolution to the long-standing conflict.
