Sarah Stern is the founder and president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET), an influential pro-Israel think tank in Washington.

She has leveraged her connections on Capitol Hill and elsewhere over the past couple decades to provide her regional expertise of the issues related to Israel and the rest of the Middle East. These connections include now-National Security Adviser John Bolton, who took part in an event on Capitol Hill organized by EMET.

Stern has testified in Congress, and has been crucial in the passage of legislation, most recently, the Taylor Force Act to defund U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority for paying terrorists and their families.

Topics included President Trump withdrawing from the 2015 Iran deal and formally opening the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

Regarding Tuesday’s move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, Stern said: “It is really a historic injustice that was just corrected yesterday.”
