AMEU was founded 39 years ago by Americans whose professions in medicine, church ministry, archaeology and diplomacy had taken them to the Middle East.

AMEU strives to create in the United States a deeper appreciation of the culture, history and current events in that area.

To achieve this goal, AMEU publishes The Link on a bi-monthly basis and sponsors educational programs.
