  • Mohamed Anwar E. al-Sadat, former parliamentarian and chairman of the Reform and Development Party, Egypt
  • Asli Aydintasbas, senior fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations, based in Istanbul; former columnist, Milliyet
  • David Horovitz, founding editor of the Times of Israel; former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post and Jerusalem Report

The mission of The Washington Institute is to advance a balanced and realistic understanding of American interests in the Middle East and to promote the policies that secure them.
