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!

Shaky Calm Returns To Jerusalem After Weekend Clashes

Tensions have partially dissipated in Jerusalem and the West Bank following a weekend of clashes between Muslim worshipers and Israeli security forces over the ongoing Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque crisis. Palestinian leaders warned that the conflict was not yet over, however, despite Israel having removed metal detectors and other security infrastructure placed at the compound in the aftermath of an attack by three Israeli Muslims that killed two police officers. While Islamic religious leaders ended a two-week boycott of the complex last Thursday, they nevertheless complained of new restrictions barring entry to those under 50 years old; a move implemented by Israeli authorities meant to prevent the likelihood of further violence. King Abdullah II of Jordan—the custodian of Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem—spoke with U.S. President Donald Trump to express his support for Washington’s “important role” in defusing the situation. For its part, the White House described the prevailing conditions as “contained,” a sentiment echoed by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who also reiterated that his government “acted correctly” during the ordeal. Despite the lull in violence, police face another potentially turbulent week with more than 1,000 Jews expected to visit the flashpoint holy site on the Fast of the Ninth of Av this Tuesday.
