I am a senior fellow at the New York-based Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan foreign policy think tank chaired by Ambassador John R. Bolton.
I am also the senior analyst for European politics at the Madrid-based Grupo de Estudios Estratégicos/ Strategic Studies Group, a think tank tied to Spain’s center-right Partido Popular / Popular Party and former Spanish Prime Minister José Maria Aznar.
My academic specialties are American foreign policy, European politics and transatlantic defense- and security-related issues, but in recent years I have devoted much of my time to studying the rise of Islam in Europe.
I write a weekly column about European politics for the Gatestone Institute, and am a regular commentator about European affairs for newspapers and radio programs on both sides of the Atlantic.
I also speak about current events and the geopolitics of Islam at conferences, seminars and churches in Europe and North America.
I advise European and American companies on geopolitical risk, and teach courses on diplomacy and international relations at universities in Spain and the United States.
I have been a contributing analyst for Jane’s Information Group on Basque and Islamic terrorism in Spain and France, and my work has been published in specialized intelligence publications such as Jane’s Intelligence Review, Jane’s Intelligence Weekly and Jane’s Terrorism and Security Monitor.
My foreign policy analyses have been published by the Center for Defense Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, Oxford Analytica, World Politics Review and the Weekly Standard, among others.
I have been the senior analyst for transatlantic relations at the Madrid-based Elcano Royal Institute for Strategic and International Affairs. I served in the US Air Force (stationed in Germany) during the last decade of the Cold War, and worked as a defense analyst at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), one of the leading corporate think tanks advising the Pentagon on nuclear non-proliferation. I was also the Washington-based managing editor of Arms Control Today, a strategic affairs monthly magazine.
I graduated with a degree in diplomacy and international security from the School of Foreign Serviceat Georgetown University in Washington DC, and also studied Middle Eastern history and geopolitics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
I have visited more than one hundred countries, including all of those in Europe and most of those in the Middle East. The most fascinating place I have ever been to is Iran, a country rarely seen by outsiders and enchanting beyond belief. It is home to astonishing landscapes, truly amazing food, and some of the most hospitable people in the world.
I am a dual citizen of the United States and Germany. I am fluent in English, German and Spanish, and have a working knowledge of Dutch, French, Italian and Portuguese. I am married to my best friend Mónica and we feel equally at home in both Spain and America.
For over 30 years, Evangelist Mike Gendron was a devout Roman Catholic and a strong defender of the "one true church." He was taught from a very early age, to trust and rely on the church, its priests, the sacraments and his own good works for salvation. However in 1981 while attending an evangelical seminar, he realized the Bible is the supreme authority for knowing truth. His new excitement and hunger for the inspired word of God led him to help organize the very ﬁrst Little Rock Scripture Study at a Catholic Church in Dallas. Mike soon realized that many of the teachings and traditions of the Catholic religion were not found in the Bible. After more study he discovered the Roman Catholic plan of salvation was diametrically opposed to the Gospel of grace that is revealed in the Bible. After discerning that God seeks worshippers in spirit and truth, Mike left the Catholic Church in 1985 for a church where the true Gospel is proclaimed and the Scriptures are the ﬁnal authority in all matters of faith.
In 1988 he left a successful career in corporate management to study at Dallas Theological Seminary. Four years later, during his last semester at DTS, Mike and his wife Janeʼs love for Catholics inspired them to begin a ministry that would point Catholics to the Lord Jesus Christ as their all sufﬁcient Savior. Their hearts are now burdened for those who may be where they were for most of their life - eternally condemned and not even aware of it.
Mike is the host of Proclaiming The Gospel-TV which can be heard on WorldviewRadio.com

Udell married his college sweetheart, Janet Damron, in 1960, completed his Master of Science Degree in Zoology, and was thereafter employed by the U.S. Dept. of the Interior. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Cuban Missile Crisis and served in the Viet Nam War with the 3rd Marine Reconnaissance Battalion. He was wounded in combat and two years later entered the Armed Forces Reserves.

Dr Jimmy DeYoung has resided in Jerusalem for the last 18 years where he held full credentials as a journalist in the second most populated journalistic city in the world. Arriving there just 3 days prior to the Gulf Crisis in 1991, he weathered 39 Scud attacks. Jimmy gave reports nationwide on several networks during the Gulf Crisis. He has his finger on the pulse of what is considered the media "hot spot" of our time, the Middle East. On his travels throughout the US and around the world, Jimmy brings with him the latest news from out of the Middle East with a unique blend of political, biblical, and prophetic insight that can not be found in the media today.
Dr. DeYoung’s goal is to equip Christians with the knowledge and understanding of what God's Word says will happen someday soon, so that they can make better decisions today.
A Christian pastor and former Muslim, Shahram Hadian travels around the nation speaking on critical issues facing us as Americans.
Shahram was born in Iran in 1971. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army, and his mom was an elementary school teacher.
Shahram’s parents had a sense of urgency to leave Iran as soon as possible and in December of 1978, with nothing but their suitcases, moved to America to seek freedom.
Shahram experienced a transformational life change 15 years ago when he committed his life to Jesus Christ.
When he became a Christian, he immediately faced persecution and disapproval from his family and culture. According to the teachings of Islam, his conversion means that he is an “apostate” and deserves to be killed.
In spite of this opposition, Shahram persevered, enrolled in Bible College, and has been a Christian pastor for the last ten years. He graduated from Puget Sound Christian College with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry.

Marty is one of Brannon's favorite Christian singers and has literally worn out more than one of his CDs. Marty was also a favorite of Dr. Adrian Rogers and thus Marty played the piano and sang at the funeral of Dr. Rogers. Marty will be one of your favorite Christian singers once you hear his beautiful music and the Biblical truth of this modern day psalmist.
His songs are scriptures beautifully set to music, leaving listeners spiritually moved, inspired and educated. With melodic and fresh acoustical/classic arrangements, Marty Goetz has the ability to lead you into a place of true intimacy with God. Though Marty would never refer to himself as 'anointed' the endless letters he receives confirm that God is moving through him and his music.
