MEMRI TV's TOP 50 CLIPS FOR 2017 – PLEASE SUPPORT OUR WORK

As a valued subscriber to our MEMRI TV Project research, you understand the project's unique work of bringing content from Arabic-language broadcasting to Western audiences. No one else in the entire world is doing this vital work. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words; MEMRI has, since its launch in 2004, produced 6,000 video clips comprising nearly 30,000 minutes of translated video content that have had hundreds of millions of views online and are seen in 192 countries worldwide.

The MEMRI TV Project monitors the 100 most important Arab, Iranian, and South Asian TV channels around the clock, providing open-source broadcast content to Western governments, military, law enforcement, and academia, as well as to the public at large. It is a major resource for researchers, providing a much deeper understanding of complex situations than can be obtained from other sources.

Extremely intensive processes and resources go into creating every single MEMRI TV clip: recording many hours of programming, selecting the most important content, translating and transcribing it, adding subtitles, carrying out technical editing, and performing a final review before publishing it on multiple platforms. Additionally, MEMRI TV maintains the world's largest archives of content translated from Arab and Iranian television. All these are very expensive undertakings.

THIS PROCESS IS VERY COSTLY AND REQUIRES EXTENSIVE MANPOWER AND TREMENDOUS RESOURCES. YOUR SUPPORT IS ESSENTIAL FOR US TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUE OUR WORK – PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION.

MEMRI TV: A Window To Understanding The Arab And Islamic World, Exposing Extremism And Hatred – DONATE TODAY

MEMRI is the only organization in the world that is working 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year monitoring, recording, translating, subtitling, and publishing clips from more than 100 television channels from the Arab and Muslim world. The MEMRI TV Project opens a window to greater understanding of some of the most critical issues in the Arab and Muslim world, from jihadism to reform and promotion of liberal voices and activists: anti-West sentiment; hatred of non-Muslims; and reform, including women's rights, pro-democracy activism, and promotion of liberal voices. MEMRI TV clips have featured incitement and hatred in sermons and statements in Denmark, Canada, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, and Belgium – and in states across the U.S. MEMRI TV has translated videos by ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other jihadis celebrating and encouraging attacks on the West, as well as statements by Palestinian leaders and organizations inciting anti-Israel hatred and violence. MEMRI TV research is vital for decision makers and public opinion influencers worldwide, and is used by major media outlets across the world and by U.S. and Western government bodies, militaries, intelligence agencies, and law enforcement – including in all 50 U.S. states. In Europe, MEMRI TV clips have launched, and aided, investigations that have led to arrests and deportations of extremist and antisemitic preachers, and has helped in the passage of bans on the entry of other similar individuals. Its research is available free of charge in the largest archive in the world of translated broadcast content from the Arab and Muslim world.
