Topic - Middle East Media Research Institute

The Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI for short, is a Middle Eastern press monitoring organization. Its headquarters is located in Washington, DC, with branch offices in Jerusalem, Berlin, London, Rome, Shanghai, Baghdad, and Tokyo. MEMRI was co-founded in 1998 by Yigal Carmon, a former colonel in the Israeli military intelligence, former acting head and adviser on Arab affairs to the Israeli government, former head of the Israeli Civil Administration in Judea and Samaria Area (West Bank), former Counterterrorism adviser to prime ministers Yitzhak Shamir and Yitzhak Rabin, former delegate to the Israeli peace negotiations with Syria in Madrid and Washington and another Israeli Meyrav Wurmser. It provides a free source of English language translations of material published in Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Pashto, and Turkish and publishes its analyses and in-depth reports on its website - although it also offers specialized content for a fee. - Source: Wikipedia
