Avi Melamed joined The Watchman with Erick Stakelbeck | Israel UNDER FIRE: Iran Opens NEW FRONT in Yemen; Israel “At Gates” of Gaza City.

Erick Stakelbeck is Director of Christians United for Israel’s CUFI Watchman Project and host of “The Watchman” program on TBN.

He has spent nearly two decades years covering the Middle East and national security issues in-depth: traveling to the region, interviewing world leaders and wanted terrorists, and highlighting the shared threats to America and Israel. A 2013 Jerusalem Post profile stated that, “Within Evangelical Christian circles, Stakelbeck is considered by many to be the leading authority” on the issues of national security and the Middle East.

In February 2016, Stakelbeck launched “The Watchman” show on TBN, joining the world’s largest Christian television network with America’s largest pro-Israel organization, CUFI, to produce a hard-hitting weekly, 30-minute newsmagazine focusing on Israel, America and the Middle East. The program airs every Thursday night at 11:30 pm EST on TBN and is seen worldwide.

From 2005 to 2015, Stakelbeck was a correspondent, host and terrorism analyst for CBN News, covering the global war on terror, U.S. national security, the Middle East and the growth of radical Islam at home and abroad for the network’s Washington, D.C. bureau.

Stakelbeck’s first book, “The Terrorist Next Door: How the Government is Deceiving You About the Islamist Threat,” was released in 2011 by Regnery Publishing to major acclaim.

His second book was released by Regnery in July 2013. The “Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy” warns about the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and the global Islamist movement.

His third book with Regnery, “ISIS Exposed: Beheadings, Slavery and the Hellish Reality of Radical Islam,” was released on March 9, 2015.

Stakelbeck is a regular commentator on leading national television and radio programs and a frequent guest on Fox News. His appearances include: The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity, Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox and Friends, Justice with Judge Jeanine, Huckabee, America’s Newsroom, CNN Newsroom, BBC, Al Hurra and many others.

Stakelbeck has also contributed to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV, guest hosting the Glenn Beck Program and providing in-studio analysis and investigative reports.

From 2003 to 2005, Stakelbeck worked as a senior writer and analyst at the Investigative Project on Terrorism, a counterterrorism think tank founded by terrorism expert Steven Emerson. His articles on Islamic extremism, global terrorism and national security appeared in the Wall Street Journal Europe, Weekly Standard, Washington Times, New York Post, Jerusalem Post, and National Review Online, among other publications.

Stakelbeck regularly speaks to audiences around the country on terrorism and Middle East-related issues, including at events for Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the annual National Religious Broadcasters Convention (NRB), ACT for America, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the Values Voter Summit and the Faith and Freedom Coalition, among others.
