EMET - Seventh Annual Rays of Light 

Washington DC – June 19, 2013

In Keeping the EMET tradition of honoring righteous Muslims, Persians, and Arabs who have bravely spoken out against radical Islam, and its hatred of Jews and Israel, this year EMET is proud to bestow the Speaker of Truth Award to honor a courageous defender of truth, Reza Kahlili.

Excerpts of the Remarks by Sarah Stern at the Seventh Annual Rays of Light Dinner:

We, at EMET are proud that we are the first Jewish, pro-Israel organization, who has taken it upon itself to say thank you to those incredibly courageous Muslims, former Muslims, Persians or Arabs who have risked everything, including exclusion from their family and friends, exclusion from their community, and even their very lives, to speak the truth about the Islamist assault on Western civilization as we know it.

People like those we will be hearing from tonight, such as Reza Kahlili should be awarded, praised, and feted for their unparalleled courage. They have managed to penetrate down through the layers and layers of societal bias and hatred, and reached down to what makes us all human. I do not know, if I were in their place, if I would be as courageous.  They are among the very best specimens that humanity has to offer.

And we are proud tonight to honor those, who have dared to think outside of the box;  who dare to stand with Israel, who dare to stand for the cause of human freedom and to stand against the mounting forces of radical Islam. We are proud to have with us today such heroes such in the struggle as Dr. Katrina Lantos Swett and Mrs Annette Lantos, who will accept the Award in memory of the late Rep. Tom Lantos; Rep. Jeff Duncan; Senator Ted Cruz; Brett Stephens of the Wall Street Journal and courageous author and speaker of the truth: Reza Kahlili.

Hosted by: James Phillips Senior Research Fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs

Iran’s defiant regime has continued to advance its nuclear program and military buildup despite UN sanctions and growing international isolation. Tehran has welcomed the popular uprisings sweeping the Arab countries of the Middle East as an “Islamic awakening” while vigorously repressing democratic opposition forces at home. But the regime’s systematic repression has failed to destroy the opposition Green Movement, which continues to be a thorn in its side.

In recent weeks, the regime has suffered from rising internal tensions amid signs of a rift between President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Ahmadinejad’s power has been undermined by political infighting and the arrests of some of his allies. How will intensifying political friction within the regime and widespread opposition to it among Iran’s long-suffering people affect Iran’s future? What can the United States do to encourage a democratic transition in Iran? Our panel of experts will examine these and other questions.
