Special Announcements No. 1196

We at MEMRI would like to express our appreciation for you, a loyal reader of MEMRI research. We know that you are aware of the critical importance of our work. Today, we are asking you, as a previous donor, for your renewed support of our groundbreaking projects and initiatives.

Please donate to our Spring 2022 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 foreign 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– but we need your help to keep it that way.

PLEASE HELP US TODAY SO WE CAN CONTINUE OUR WORK THROUGH 2022 – DONATIONS CAN NOW BE MADE IN CRYPTOCURRENCY

As one of the world's most productive think tanks in the U.S., in 2021 MEMRI published 584 Special Dispatch translations, 152 Inquiry and Analysis reports and Daily Briefs, and nearly 700 MEMRI TV clips. MEMRI TV clips had over 30 million views, and on social media – YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram – we have nearly 300,000 followers. The top 12 recent MEMRI TV clips have had over 5.5 million views on Twitter alone.

So far in 2022, we have published 288 translations, analysis pieces, and special analysis briefs, and released 272 MEMRI TV clips.

But we need your help to continue this critical work . 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.

YOUR TAX-DEDUCTIBLE GIFT SUPPORTS ALL OF OUR VITAL WORK

We need your help to continue our crucial projects:

  • MEMRI TV – Providing around-the-clock translations of nearly 100 Arab, Iranian, Turkish, Russian, Urdu, and Chinese TV channels, and providing in-depth insight into complex situations that other sources cannot. To date, MEMRI TV clips have had over 340 million views across the web.

  • Lantos Archives on Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Denial – Named after the late honorable Congressman and Holocaust survivor Tom Lantos, this project exposes Muslim antisemitism in the Arab and Muslim world and the West and maintains the world's largest archives on this subject.

  • Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) Project – Monitoring, translating, and analyzing content online by jihadi organizations and individuals, with a focus on their outreach, expansion, recruitment, indoctrination, social media, and fundraising.

  • Cyber and Jihad Lab (CJL) – Monitoring and researching cyber jihad originating from the Middle East, Iran, and South Asia, and working with government agencies as well as tech industry leaders to stop it.

  • Domestic Terrorism Threat Monitor (DTTM) Project – Scrutinizing online propaganda, incitement, threats, and recruitment activity by violent neo-Nazi groups and individuals.

  • Iran Media Project – Monitoring and translating content from over 40 Iranian newspapers and 30 Iranian TV channels, the project also publishes original analysis pieces on various Iran-related issues.

  • Sermons By Imams In The West Project – MEMRI TV clips of hate-filled sermons by imams throughout the U.S. and Canada have prompted widespread criticism from political leaders and public apologies from some imams. In 2021, the project published a total of 32 sermons; so far this year, the project has published 19 sermons.

  • China: The Chinese Media Studies Project (CMSP) monitors, translates, and analyzes primary source content from print and online Chinese media, as well as official government documents and transcripts. It examines the ideology and foreign policy of today's No. 1 threat to the U.S.
