Published six weeks after 9/11, Martin Kramer’s Ivory Towers on Sand rebuked professors of Middle East studies who championed one failed intellectual orthodoxy after another – even as they missed the real story, such as the rise of Islamism. Have Middle East studies improved or further degenerated since 2001? What can outsiders do to help?…
 
Xi Jinping's China is quietly but dramatically becoming a power in the Middle East. From oil deals with Saudi Arabia to high-tech investments in Israel, the Chinese Communist Party is involved.

After a century as a mid-sized power, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan seeks to restore Turkey to something akin to the influence of its Ottoman past. But a rocky road finds Ankara with precious few friends among alienated NATO allies, angry Middle Eastern neighbors, and tensions with Russia and China. Has Erdoğan a chance to succeed or is he heading for a fal…
 
Iran’s recent attacks on U.S. allies, a more hostile new president, the tough JCPOA stance, the apparent race to The Bomb: all these steps suggest the Islamic Republic’s increasingly belligerent foreign policy. Why explains this doubling down and how can Washington best respond?Bởi Middle East Forum
 
Israelis invented the drone but the United States and China have become world leaders, Turkey and Iran regional ones. How have drones transformed the battlefield? How does preeminence in drones affect the region? Can the US and Israeli governments control these weapons?Bởi Middle East Forum
 
The Middle East and South Asia and are very distinct regions.

In the initial post-Cold War period, the world experienced the warmest peace in human history. What caused this and why did it end? Michael Mandelbaum argues the aggressive nationalist policies of Russia, China, and Iran unraveled the peace and that only genuine democracy can restore it. How is the Biden administration dealing with these threats in…
 
Richard L. Benkin has spent his career protecting persecuted Hindus and Jews from their common enemy: Islamists and their enablers. What historical parallels and shared value systems serve as a source of solidarity between these ancient religious communities? Already, Jewish Americans rallied for Hindus in Chicago and Hindu Americans held vigils fo…

Over a distinguished career focused on Middle Eastern anthropology since the 1960s, Philip Salzman experienced academe’s profound transition from a place where open debate was encouraged to one where disagreement is punished.

While serving in Congress in 2013-19, former U.S. Representative Keith Rothfus witnessed both the meteoric rise of ISIS and its crushing military defeat. But, knowing ISIS and its ilk cannot be defeated only on the literal battlefield, he took a leading role in efforts to fight it financially. What steps has the U.S. government taken to block terro…
 
20th century America defeated its Nazi and Communist adversaries both militarily and ideologically. Twenty years into the “War on Terror,” however, military victories over al-Qaeda and ISIS leave little motivation to defeat the Islamist ideology in the war of ideas. As Indonesia, Central Asian states, and Morocco show, that is both possible and des…
 
Israel as a whole – not just Benjamin Netanyahu – faces great peril as multiple domestic destructive forces reach a crescendo, including the fragmentation of Israel’s political system, “Bibi Derangement Syndrome,” the radicalization of its Arab minority, and Hamas’s growing interference in its internal affairs.…

What are the primary camps arguing for and against going back to the JCPOA’s limitations, what are their motivations and arguments? Which side will the Supreme Leader likely support?Bởi Middle East Forum

If the great sea empires (British, French, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish) nearly disappeared sixty years ago, many land empires live on, conveniently hiding under their contiguity: the Chinese, Ethiopian, Burmese, and Persian. Iran’s non-Persian communities form about half of the population. Who are they, what are their political aims, and what potent…
 
Yemen’s civil war, underway since 2014, involves a dizzying array of combatant groups backed by an almost as large number of foreign governments. What is at stake in this conflict, what is the record of America’s allies in it, and what policies should the Biden Administration pursue?Bởi Middle East Forum
 
The Islamic republic has developed extensive tools to engage in conflict short of war, in what has come to be known as the “gray zone.” Examples include the 1983 Beirut Marine barracks bombing, the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, and the 2011 plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States. The U.S. government has struggled to adapt to th…
 
The alleged coup attempt in Jordan last month briefly placed the Hashemite Kingdom at the forefront of the news.

What impact does this misreporting have on American perceptions and policy? Can the newspaper be held accountable?…
 
Poland’s policies on Islamism and migration make it and Israel natural allies, especially at a time when Western Europe governments show increasing hostility toward the Jewish state. But a Polish law criminalizing mention of the role Polish citizens played in the Holocaust has poisoned relations between the two countries. Should Jerusalem pragmatic…
 
Shurat HaDin (the Israel Law Center) confronts terrorists and their enablers where governments and intelligence agencies cannot: the civil court room. In less than two decades it has won more than US$2 billion in judgments from everyone from BDS bigots to state sponsors of terrorism. How does Shurat HaDin accomplish so much with limited resources, …
 
The Establishment in France has for decades accommodated Islamists, but this has modestly changed in recent months, especially after the beheading of Samuel Paty last October.
