About Us

The American Educational Trust (AET) is a non-profit foundation incorporated in Washington, DC in 1982 by retired U.S. Foreign Service officers to provide the American public with balanced and accurate information concerning U.S. relations with Middle Eastern states. As part of its educational mission, AET publishes the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, a 76-page magazine published 7 times per year in Washington, DC, that focuses on news and analysis from and about the Middle East and U.S. policy in that region.

The AET Library Endowment Fund, a 501(c)3 registered charity, provides educational materials to schools, libraries, religious institutions and members of congress. AET also maintains a bookstore, Middle East Books and More, which offers a variety of books.

The Washington Report publishes insightful analysis of the political, economic and historical realities of the U.S.-Middle East relationship. Our magazine is packed with special reports on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, current Middle East issues, and grassroots activism in the U.S. and abroad.
