To counteract the torrent of delegitimization directed against our country, Israel must cope with misrepresentations spread by those who oppose the existence of a Jewish state. The Center for Near East Policy Research is unique: We research, investigate, and publicize stories that would otherwise go unreported.

We regularly initiate briefings for our experts to meet with lawmakers and journalists in Western capitals.

Our foci are Palestinian Authority anti-Semitism and the policies of UNRWA—the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees.

For over a decade, we have produced short documentary films that give an inside look into UNRWA, which breeds the next generation of terrorists. Our work has been instrumental in reaching those that effect real, positive change for Israel. Our films and special reports have been presented at the U.S. Congress, British Parliament, Canadian Parliament, European Commission and the United Nations (in New York and Geneva).

  1. the vicious anti–Semitic Palestinians are a crystal clear cancer on Israel whom must be permenently expelled from Gaza, the West Bank, and certainly from Jerusalem at once !!!…that continuous waring populace should be relocated to our ” friends” in Saudi Arabia as their appropriate homeland ; the Saudiis have a gigantic land mass they’ll never use in a thousand years !!!…screw the U.N and hostile world opinion against civilized true peace loving Israel !!! God Bless Israel and God Bless Benjamin Netanyahu, a true loyal protector and great leader !!! Howie from Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Boston, Ma. U.S.A.

Bedein has covered breaking Middle East negotiations in Oslo, Ottawa, Shepherdstown, The Wye Plantation, Annapolis, Geneva, Nicosia, Washington, D.C., London, Bonn, and Vienna. Bedein has overseen investigative studies of the Palestinian Authority, the Expulsion Process from Gush Katif and Samaria, The Peres Center for Peace, Peace Now, The International Center for Economic Cooperation of Yossi Beilin, the ISM, Adalah, and the New Israel Fund.   Since 2005, Bedein has also served as Director of the Center for Near East Policy Research.   A focus of the center's investigations is The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). In that context, Bedein authored Roadblock to Peace: How the UN Perpetuates the Arab-Israeli Conflict - UNRWA Policies Reconsidered, which caps Bedein's 28 years of investigations of UNRWA. The Center for Near East Policy Research has been instrumental in reaching elected officials, decision makers and journalists, commissioning studies, reports, news stories and films. In 2009, the center began decided to produce short movies, in addition to monographs, to film every aspect of UNRWA education in a clear and cogent fashion.   The center has so far produced seven short documentary pieces n UNRWA which have received international acclaim and recognition, showing how which UNRWA promotes anti-Semitism and incitement to violence in their education'   In sum, Bedein has pioneered The UNRWA Reform Initiative, a strategy which calls for donor nations to insist on reasonable reforms of UNRWA. Bedein and his team of experts provide timely briefings to members to legislative bodies world wide, bringing the results of his investigations to donor nations, while demanding reforms based on transparency, refugee resettlement and the demand that terrorists be removed from the UNRWA schools and UNRWA payroll.   Bedein's work can be found at: and A new site,, will be launched very soon.
