The Middle East Institute
of Wartburg College


The Middle East Institute of Wartburg College is dedicated to the dissemination of information about contemporary events in the Middle East and, especially, about events in Israel and Palestine. The Institute was founded in 2000 by Drs. Walter Bouzard and Fred Strickert, professors in the Department of Religion and Philosophy, both of whom are available for public speaking and commentary. Both professors have traveled extensively in the Middle East. In addition, Prof. Strickert is the co-author of three books on Palestine and presently writes a regular editorial in the journal, Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.

Membership to the Institute is free of charge. Notices of current events, important pending legislation that pertains to the Middle East, and other items of interest will be e-mailed to members. A list server address will soon appear here. Check back soon.
