FP: Sarah Stern, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Let's begin with you sharing with us why you felt it necessary to launch another think tank in Washington.
Tell us its purpose and what it does.
Stern: I founded EMET when I had been the Director of Governmental Relations with the American Jewish Congress, and the AJC leadership asked me to lobby for the Gaza withdrawal in 2005.
: Yes Jamie, we see it as our mission to simply tell the un-doctored truth about Israel's proud struggle to survive, and the radical Islamist's war against Israel and the West.
: When I was with the American Jewish Congress
, I started to lobby for a piece of legislation to try to correct the deeply entrenched anti-Israeli and anti-American biases in most, if not all, of the Middle Eastern Studies Departments in universities across our nation.
This is the first I'm hearing of Ms. Stern
It's especially gratifying to note that Ms. Stern
is exposing the saudis for the cowardice and genocidal pathology.
