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 Envoy Tweets “Important Progress” after Meeting with Israeli and Palestinian Officials

Mimicking his boss’s penchant for tweeting, President Trump’s international negotiator Jason Greenblatt signaled “important progress” was made in a Ramallah meeting that included Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, Palestinian intelligence and finance chiefs, Israeli finance minister and a senior defense ministry official and Greenblatt. The Palestinian news agency WAFA reported the talks included Israeli building on land it conquered in the 1967 war (settlements); the siege of the Gaza Strip and financial issues related to the financial entitlements of the Palestinian National Authority.” Greenblatt had arrived in the region last week when the Trump Trio negotiating Israeli-Palestinian peace made a surprise visit to Saudi Arabia. Although media attention focuses primarily on Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner who is the designated head of the effort, it’s Greenblatt who has been carrying the ball and who has, according to comments by sources in Israel and the Palestinian territories, earned the respect of both sides. When Kushner flew back to the US on Saturday, Greenblatt continued on to Amman, Ramallah and Jerusalem. The Trump strategy to pull off what he calls Israeli-Palestinian rapprochement, “the ultimate deal,” apparently includes more involvement from Sunni-majority Arab states: primarily Saudi Arabia.
