     TRIBUTE TO GEORGE NADER, EDITOR, MIDDLE EAST INSIGHT MAGAZINE

                                 ______


                         HON. NICK J. RAHALL II

                            of west virginia

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, April 15, 1996

  Mr. RAHALL. Mr. Speaker, over the years volumes have been written 
about the Middle East and its turbulent politics, economic potential, 
and strategic importance to the United States. One publication stands 
out because of its comprehensive, insightful and balanced approach to 
issues in the region.
  I am referring to Middle East Insight magazine which has just 
celebrated its 15th anniversary as one of the leading journals of 
Middle East affairs. Throughout this turbulent period, Middle East 
Insight has covered the complex issues affecting the region in a 
thoughtful, creative way to bring greater knowledge and understanding 
to all parties. By striving to rise above the ideological passions that 
often divide the region, Middle East Insight has earned the respect of 
its readers in Washington, DC and throughout the region.
  The driving force behind the magazine is its editor, George Nader. 
Nader is the founder and president of International Insight, an 
organization that promotes better understanding between the Middle East 
and the United States. He is a recognized expert on the region and is 
often invited by major news organizations to comment as events unfold.
  Because of his reputation for fairness and his remarkable access to 
key political and

business leaders throughout the region, Nader has produced a magazine 
of distinction and high quality. Leaders such as Egyptian President 
Hosni Mubarak, PLO Leader Yassir Arafat, the late Israeli Prime 
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Morocco's King Hassan II, and Presidents Bush 
and Clinton have all been featured in Middle East Insight.
  It is a tribute to George Nader and his vision to publish a magazine 
that is respected for its contribution to public policy debate. Both he 
and Middle East Insight deserve special recognition on their 15th 
anniversary.
