Middle East Forum director, Gregg Roman hosts an hour of informative, controversial and intelligent talk radio with weekly guests who offer expert perspectives and commentary on Middle Eastern and global affairs. Tune in to hear about topics ranging from the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, what’s next after we’ve defeated ISIS, the potential of withdrawing American troops from the region, and much more.
The Middle East Forum promotes American interests in the Middle East and protects Western values from Middle Eastern threats. The Forum sees the region — with its profusion of dictatorships, radical ideologies, existential conflicts, border disagreements, corruption, political violence, and weapons of mass destruction — as a major source of problems for the United States. Accordingly, we urge bold measures to protect Americans and their allies. In the Middle East, we focus on ways to defeat radical Islam; work for Palestinian acceptance of Israel; develop strategies to contain Iran; and deal with the great advances of anarchy. At home, the Forum emphasizes the danger of lawful Islamism; protects the freedoms of anti-Islamist authors, activists, and publishers; and works to improve Middle East studies.
