As a loyal reader and previous donor, you already know the critical importance of our work. Today, we are asking for your renewed support of our groundbreaking projects and initiatives. Please donate to our Spring 2021 fundraising campaign, so that we can continue to bridge the language gap between the Middle East, Iran, Turkey, South Asia, Russia, the Caucasus, China, and the West.
For over two decades, MEMRI has been providing vital research, primary source translations, and original analysis to U.S. and international governments, counterterrorism officials, law enforcement agencies, militaries, and other authorities to tackle threats and prevent terror attacks. We work with news organizations and media to inform their understanding of the complexities of issues and developments in all these countries and serve as a valuable resource for academia worldwide. Our research and analysis are free of charge to our major audiences – media, academia, legislatures, and the public at large – but we need your help to keep it that way.
As one of the world's most productive think tanks in the U.S., so far in 2021 we have published over 195 translations, analysis pieces, and special analysis briefs, and released over 200 MEMRI TV clips. In 2020, MEMRI TV clips had over 30 million views. On social media – YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram – we have nearly 300,000 followers.
Please join the thousands of MEMRI supporters who donate to help us continue this critical work. We cannot do this without you, and with recent world events and heightened tensions in the region as well as domestically, our work is more crucial than ever. No one else is doing the work that MEMRI does.

In all 50 states and in Washington, D.C, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle turn to MEMRI for accurate analysis and assistance with countless threats. In the halls of Congress, MEMRI regularly meets with members and their staff, as well as various committees, sharing our latest research and discussing how to help stop online terror recruitment and funding. MEMRI routinely provides research on emerging terrorism threats and trends, anti-Semitic incitement, and more, to the White House, the Departments of State, Homeland Security and Justice, the National Counterterrorism Center, the TSA, and others.
