Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Accusers Mount in Facebook’s Case Against Israeli Spy Company

Accusers Mount in Facebook’s Case Against Israeli Spy Company

A group of human rights groups on Wednesday signed on to Facebook’s landmark lawsuit against an Israeli spyware company, accused of manipulating a messaging app to hack into cellphones of activists and dissidents around the world. Amnesty International, the Committee to Protect Journalists and other rights organizations filed an amicus brief, supporting the tech giant’s year-long battle playing out in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. They follow companies such as Microsoft, Google and Dell, who on Monday made a similar move, warning the court that the NSO spyware group, based in Israel and started by former Israeli intelligence officers, poses a threat to the safety of internet users. NSO has in recent years come under fire for selling hacking software to undemocratic regimes in Africa, South America and the Middle East. It is accused of subverting Facebook’s popular WhatsApp messaging platform to enable surveillance agencies to track and jail protest leaders and activists.
