Only through increased understanding of the peoples of the Middle East — their history, their struggles, their rights and aspirations — can a just and lasting peace be achieved, which is in the interest of all Americans.

Assists Journalists

The IMEU assists journalists who are working on stories about Palestine or the Palestinians by:

Providing access to the latest news stories, expert analysis, photographs and other visuals

Maintaining an updated panel of credible experts and analysts who can comment publicly on the news, life and culture of Palestinians and Palestinian Americans.

Putting journalists in contact with Palestinian women and men from all walks of life — including artists, poets, businesspeople, medical professionals, policymakers, and more — who are willing to be interviewed.

Compiling an extensive library of images, maps, studies, reports and polls relating to Palestine and the Palestinians
Providing a comprehensive set of answers to the most commonly asked questions about Palestine and the Palestinians

Supplying links to websites and other online materials that offer journalists a wide range of information on the Palestinian experience. The IMEU provides these links as a service to journalists but it does not necessarily endorse the views or opinions of the various sources.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The IMEU was founded in 2005 by a group of concerned Americans who want to foster an increased understanding among Americans about Palestine and the Palestinians.

Sound public policy is achieved when citizens receive balanced and accurate information from the media. And if journalists have easy access to credible information and analysis about Palestinians, it can only result in a better informed American public.

Diverse opinions are necessary for the free and full exchange of ideas. The IMEU can best serve the media and the public by staying independent and providing access to a range of voices.

All human beings should be treated equally, regardless of gender, faith or national origin — whether they reside in the United States, Palestine, Israel or anywhere else in the world.

Violence is abhorrent — whether perpetrated by individuals or by states — and must be repudiated in all its forms.
