Mendi Safadi, the head of the Safadi Center for International Diplomacy, Research, Human Rights and Public Relations, is a lecturer and expert on Islamic affairs, terrorism, Syria and the Middle East. He has published numerous articles and served as a political and strategic adviser about the Arab Spring and the Syrian revolution. Previously, he was the chief of staff in the Office of the Deputy Minister for Development of the Negev and Galilee and Regional Cooperation. He served as a link between officials in the government and the Syrian opposition.
The Safadi Center has been working over the past year on the lack of human rights in Bangladesh. The Safadi Center seeks to ensure the rights of minorities, an end to the current government’s repression, and to fight against the denial of minority ethnic cleansing of Hindus, Buddhists and Christians, which is conducted by ISIS and other Islamist groups, under the tutelage of the ruling Awami League government.
The Safadi Center has been working in order to help the liberal Syrian opposition fight against the oppression of the Syrian regime. We assisted them in many countries, helped them to obtain humanitarian aid and medical supplies and prepared human rights reports, exposing the activities of terrorist groups that infiltrated into the Syrian arena with the support of the regime and Iran in order to undermine the revolution. We work in order to save minorities that were subject to an existential threat in Syria and Iraq. The Safadi Center has assisted Christians, Yazidis, and Jews to smuggle out of areas that are under the control of ISIS.
