The Middle East Strategic Information (MESI) project

provides a unique in-depth analysis of the Middle East and its strategic issues as they relate to the outside world. The MESI informs beyond the headlines and presents news and evaluations that provide important relevant data to the understanding of the Middle East. The MESI analyses the reporting of and from the Middle East providing many of the details and much of the background to the news emanating from this region. Arabic media experts on the staff will make available the essential news from the Arab speaking world and its press. The MESI also has access to intelligence of a sensitive nature that is seldom presented to a wider audience. As part of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, the MESI has access to senior politicians, diplomats, high-ranking security officials, academics, legal experts and strategists from Israel and around the Middle East. These provide MESI with an important infrastructure to disseminate a professional and credible analysis of events from the region.
