The Jewish Policy Center (JPC), founded in 1985[1] as an "offshoot" of the Republican Jewish Coalition,[2] is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit "nonpartisan but Republican-oriented"[3] think tank which "provides scholarly perspectives on foreign and domestic policies that impact the Jewish community in the United States, and the broader American public," its website states.[4]

"The JPC asserts that Jewish Americans can no longer afford to stubbornly hold on to outdated ideas of the past. This includes optimism over misguided Middle East peace deals, appeasement of dictators, and unrealistic hopes that dangerous realities in the Middle East might simply change without tougher U.S. policies."[4]

The JPC supports:[4]

  • The "global war against Islamic extremism".
  • "U.S. efforts to spread democracy in the Middle East."
  • "[I]t is critical to reduce America's dependence on foreign oil.
  • "Washington's efforts to deter dangerous states from acquiring nuclear weapons."
  • "[F]ull support to Israel in its long war for security in the Middle East."
