I noted this in a different thread that I'm not able to find anymore, but note the About Us section on MEMRI's website:
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, Tokyo and Jerusalem. MEMRI research is
translated to English, German, Hebrew, Italian, French, Spanish and Japanese.
MEMRI, which claims to represent the Middle East and Middle Eastern media has only one (1) Middle Eastern office and that is in Jerusalem. As well,
they don't even traslate their research into Arabic, Farsi or Turkish, three of the biggest languages in the Middle East.
What kind of organization purports to represent the Middle East by having only one office in Israel of all places and doesn't translate their work
into Arabic or Farsi or Turkish, but does into Hebrew?
A plainly Israeli organization, one started by a retired colonel from Israeli military intelligence.
But, despite MEMRI's bias, even they are one of the few who provided a more accurate translation of Ahmadinejad's famous words of wiping Israel off
the map, instead writing that he said:
[T]his regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history.
The propaganda is hot and heavy these days from many directions.
