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!

Gantz Gives Glimpse of Groundbreaking Gulf Grouping Governing Guns and Guards 

Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Tuesday responded to recent media reports regarding a budding security pact between Jerusalem and its new allies in the Gulf. Gantz, while on tour near the Israel-Gaza border, played down the news, saying the cooperation would not constitute “a defense pact, but we are developing defense relations with every country we’ve established [diplomatic] ties with.” The Gantz remarks regarding a Gulf-Israel “arrangement” came a day after the arrival of  the first United Arab Emirates Ambassador to Israel, Mohamed Al Khaja. The envoy met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin as the two nations pledged to develop bilateral regional projects. “We’re changing the Middle East. We’re changing the world,” Netanyahu gushed. Since September of last year, Israel has established formal relations with four Arab and Gulf states: the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.
