We would like to take this opportunity to follow up with you regarding our Spring fundraising campaign and to seek your personal participation. This is our third – and final – request this Spring. Please take this opportunity to support MEMRI today and accept our most sincere gratitude if you already have.
Last month, MEMRI marked its 20th anniversary and owes its success to its donors. As a valued MEMRI reader, you already know that 24 hours per day, seven days per week, 365 days per year, MEMRI supports Western governments in their fight against terrorism and extremism, as well as in their efforts to promote reform and women's, minority, and human rights in the Middle East and South Asia.
MEMRI research plays a critical role in keeping Western policymakers informed on the most pressing issues of the day, including this weekend's chemical attack by the Assad regime and the possible repercussions for the region. The MEMRI Russia Media Studies project continues to assess Russia's increasing involvement in the Middle East, its support for the resistance camp (Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah), and the rising tension between it and the U.S. and NATO. The MEMRI Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) and Cyber and Jihad Lab (CJL) projects track jihadi activity online, including on encrypted social media platforms, and keep Western intelligence, military, and law enforcement bodies informed of the latest threats. To maintain these projects, and to expand into new areas, MEMRI needs your support now.
MEMRI is one of the most productive "think tanks" in the world dealing with the Middle East and South Asian affairs. So far this year, we have published nearly 520 reports and 107 videos of translations from Arab and Iranian TV, and have sent out more than 92 reports by email to readers like you.
Significant resources are required to produce our reports and maintain our websites. We need your support today so that we may continue our work. A recurring, monthly donation would help us most. Please donate online or by mailing a check to: MEMRI, P.O. Box 27837, Washington, DC 20038-7837.
With deepest gratitude,
