The MEMRI TV Monitor Project

Linked with our presentation of One of many Muslim Voices.

First of all: I do not agree with all the speaches shown on MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute TV Monitor Project website. More, there are presentations for me out of any understanding. During the Middle Age we Christians believed that Jewish are eating our babies, today’s Muslim beliefs of our western world are not so hard, but still strange in some way.

But here you have a good place to follow Muslim Voices speaking out what they really think. Some are progressist, even very courageous, many others are not. For any possible dialogue we could have, let’s read and listen to what our Muslim Fellows are telling … speaches coming out of a strange world I was not able to imagine before I had listened to it (Heidi).

The peoples of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) write about themselves: we explore the Middle East through the region’s media. MEMRI bridges the language gap which exists between the West and the Middle East, providing timely translations of Arabic and Farsi media, as well as original analysis of political, ideological, intellectual, social, cultural, and religious trends in the Middle East. Founded in February 1998 to inform the debate over U.S. policy in the Middle East, MEMRI is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit, 501 (c)3 organization. MEMRI’s headquarters is located in Washington, DC with branch offices in Berlin, London, Jerusalem, and Baghdad, and has a project active in Sweden. MEMRI research is translated to English, German, Hebrew, Italian, French, Spanish, and occasionally Turkish and Russian.

The MEMRI TV Monitor Project: MEMRI’s TV monitoring center operates 16 hours per day, overseeing every major Arab channel. The center has the in-house capability to translate, subtitle and distribute the segments from Arab TV in real time to Western news channels across the world, effectively “Bridging the Language Gap Between the Middle East and the West.”

MEMRI’s TV monitoring center focuses on political, cultural, religious, and other developments and debates in the Arab and Muslim world and in Iran.
