The recent horrifying and inexcusable attack by Hamas on Israel is not just a standalone event; it sets in motion a chain of events that could reshape the political and strategic landscape of the Middle East.
During this pivotal point in Israel’s history and existence, we’re privileged to partner with Inside The Middle East. This nonprofit stands at the forefront of delivering essential and critical understanding and unparalleled educational experiences about Israel and the broad context of the Middle East.
Led by Avi Melamed and Maia Hoffman, for more than a decade ITME has been telling a different, far more accurate, and comprehensive narrative about Israel and the Middle East.
Their insight is simple, yet powerful: while the common Western narrative argues that it is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that shapes the trajectory of the Middle East, the reality is the opposite; the Middle East is what shapes the trajectory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict The war Hamas launched on Israel on October, 7th 2023, is a stark manifestation of that reality.
Throughout his career, Avi Melamed — a former Israeli intelligence official and Senior Official on Arab Affairs who is fluent in Hebrew, Arabic, and English — has been openly and vocally predicting what is now a living nightmare in Israel and the Middle East: Iran’s proxies attempting to change the Middle East as the country aims to export its Iranian revolution across it.
Avi is the author of multiple books. His latest, Inside the Middle East: Entering a New Era, clearly outlined the path of destruction Iran has wrought on the Arab and Muslim world and accurately predicted the impact of the Iranian regime’s unrelenting pursuit of regional hegemony. He is also the star of Seam Line, a new five-part documentary series that examines the conflict in Jerusalem and over Jerusalem.
Given the unprecedented events, dynamic, and constantly evolving situation in Israel and the Middle East, Avi’s insights are in high-demand. For the past six days, he has been providing comprehensive and desperately needed briefings to organizations throughout North America, and has been interviewed by international media spanning the globe.
