It has been a transformative year for The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI): We began our third decade of meeting the constantly evolving challenge of "bridging the language gap" between the Arab and Muslim world – the Middle East, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and North Africa, as well as Russia, which is returning to the Arab and Muslim world – and the West. We further expanded our assistance and work with counterterrorism officials, the U.S. federal government and government agencies, and with law enforcement, militaries, and others, to handle threats and prevent terror attacks – and with media and academia to shed light on the complexities of the region. We launched the White Supremacist Threat Monitor (WSTM) project. And we kept MEMRI research free of charge to the general public.
No one else is doing the work that MEMRI does. And none of it would be possible without your help. And as 2019 draws to a close, we are asking you, our loyal readers, to help us continue this essential work.
The year that lies ahead will be crucial for MEMRI. As the number of neo-Nazi attacks on Jewish and other targets increases, our WSTM is increasingly providing authorities with information that helps prevent attacks. With the protests and unrest in so many countries across the Middle East by people demanding freedom from Iranian domination and a better life, our Reform Project is expanding its monitoring of their progress and is giving these activist voices a platform, bringing them to the attention of the West. And as Turkey continues its efforts and ambitions to reestablish the Ottoman Empire and ramps up its repression at home, MEMRI's revitalized Turkish Media Project is closely following it through its media.
