According to a statement issued by the office of Hannah Rosenthal, the State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, the funds will be used to conduct a project that documents anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial and Holocaust glorification in the Middle East”.

“This grant will enable MEMRI to expand its efforts to monitor the media, translate materials into ten languages, analyze trends in anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial and glorification, and increase distribution of materials through its website and other outlets.” Rosenthal, who was named President Obama’s anti-Semitism czar in 2009, is responsible for combating and monitoring USZ-based and global anti-Semitism. Her office’s work falls under the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor in the USZ State Department.

The decision to award MEMRI the grant received widespread praise from European and American Middle East experts. The British-born political commentator Tom Gross told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that “this is not just financially important for MEMRI but it is of enormous symbolic significance in determining what kind of Middle East the rest of the world is hoping for in the wake of the Arab spring.”
