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!

EU Top Court: Hamas To Stay On List Of Terror Groups

The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled to keep Hamas on the bloc’s blacklist of terrorist groups, disqualifying a 2014 ruling by a lower court that said the Palestinian faction—which rules Gaza—should be removed from the list on procedural grounds. EU Ambassador to Israel Lars Faaborg-Andersen welcomed the decision, which he said will maintain all restrictive measures against the organization—an asset freeze and a ban against soliciting or mobilizing funds in the EU—in force. In an apparent move to rebrand itself, Hamas’ charter was recently amended to incorporate the acceptance of the creation of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders; although it reinforced that there is “no alternative to the full and complete liberation of Palestine, from the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea [i.e. the eradication of Israel].” Hamas and Israel have fought three large scale battles over the past decade, culminating in the seven-week war during the summer of 2014, which killed some two thousand Palestinians and dozens of Israelis. While Israel and Egypt maintain an embargo on Gaza, with a view to preventing weapons from entering the Strip, Israeli military officials nevertheless say that Hamas has been able to rearm itself to pre-2014 levels.
