Honored by EMET for speaking the truth were Cynthia Farahat and Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.).

It wasn’t that many years ago that Cynthia Farahat was a political activist in Egypt, calling for normal relations with Israel and working “side by side with secularists, Muslims, Christians and atheists.”
Those years were filled with fear, constantly learning of missing friends and family and always “waiting for the dawn visitors,” the Egyptian security that came in the early mornings, Farahat told the 260 people gathered at a June 21 dinner in support of EMET, Endowment for Middle East Truth.
The Endowment for Middle East Truth‘s 6th Annual Rays of Light in the Darkness Dinner Thursday, June 25, 2012 was a resounding success. The Rays of Light in the Darkness is the sole fundraising event of the year and is crucial to supporting
EMET’s educational efforts. But it is also an opportunity for truth-telling. The capacity crowd was regaled with excellent and informative speeches by our attending honorees, including Ambassador John Bolton, Rep Allen West, and Cynthia Farahat. We were also pleased to hear from Rep. Brad Sherman, author Kenneth Timmerman, and Rep. Trent Franks.
EMET thanks all those who came out in support of our wonderful Speakers of the Truth. Without your assistance and support, we could not continue to educate American policy makers and the general public.
