The conflict in the Middle East is perhaps the most intractable human conflict in the world today. It is a threat not only to peace in that region but to the stability of the entire world. And unfortunately, there is still no resolution in sight. There have been many attempts to force a resolution. The United States, the United Nations, the European Union, all have aggressively promoted plans for peace that have led nowhere. In fact, each successive push for peace by these external powers has only resulted in more violence.

Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME) is not-for-profit [501 (C) (3)], grass-roots community of scholars who have united to promote honest, fact-based, and civil discourse, especially in regard to Middle East issues. We believe that ethnic, national, and religious hatreds, including anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, have no place in our institutions, disciplines, and communities. We employ academic means to address these issues.
