"The Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) was established in 1971. The original conception of MERIP was to provide information and analysis on the Middle East that would be picked up by the existing media. [...] MERIP is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Washington, DC. A completely independent organization, it has no links to any religious, educational or political organizations in the US or elsewhere. [...] Since 1996, MERIP has maintained one of the most informative websites on Middle East politics, culture and society." The website maintains links to its publication, 'Middle East Report' in addition to various other special publications of interest on the Middle East region, such as the 'Report of the Task Force for Responsible Withdrawal from Iraq' and a 'Primer on Palestine, Israel, and the Arab-Israeli Conflict.'"
