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!

Trump Administration to Hold ‘Decisive’ Meeting on Israeli Annexation

Members of the Trump Administration will this week hold a “decisive” meeting on whether to back Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s stated intention to annex parts of the West Bank on July 1. According to Israeli media, the US president will be joined by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, the architect of the US Middle East peace plan; Secretary of State Mike Pompeo; National Security Adviser Richard O’Brien; lead negotiator Avi Berkowitz; and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who will reportedly fly back to Washington on Sunday following tête-à-têtes with Netanyahu and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz. The media reports claimed that Pompeo and Friedman are inclined to support the prospective application of Israeli sovereignty over as much as 30% of the West Bank in consonance with the US peace proposal, whereas Kushner maintains reservations given widespread global opposition to the move. It comes on the backdrop of disagreements between Netanyahu and Gantz, with the latter repeatedly insisting that Jerusalem should only proceed in conjunction with the international community and in a manner that does not threaten the Jewish state’s peace treaties with both Egypt and Jordan. As such, Netanyahu has floated the idea of pressing ahead in stages, perhaps initially by incorporating into Israel the large settlement blocs of Ma’aleh Adumim and Gush Etzion – both located close to Jerusalem – in addition to the city of Ariel in the northern West Bank.
