Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Israel Says Canada Ruling on West Bank Wines ‘Encourages’ BDS

Israel has said a Canadian Federal Court ruling that wines produced in Jewish communities in the West Bank can no longer be labeled as “Made in Israel,” will “encourage” the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS). “The Canadian court’s decision concerning labeling of Israeli products encourages and lends support to boycotts and the BDS movement. Israel objects to this,” the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Israeli embassy in Canada will continue to act against discriminatory treatment and the singling out of Israel in the matter of product labeling in Canada,” it added. On Monday, Canadian Federal Judge Anne L. Mactavish deemed labeling these wines as “Israeli products” is “false, misleading and deceptive.” Challenging a previous decision by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Mactavish noted that Jewish communities in the West Bank are not considered part of the State of Israel, as Canada does not recognize Israeli sovereignty beyond the pre-1967 borders. This, despite the fact that the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement applies in “the territory where the customs laws of Israel are applied,” including the West Bank.
