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!

U.S. State Department Slammed For Report On Palestinian Violence        

The U.S. State Department is under fire from pro-Israel groups over an annual report on terrorism that listed as “continued drivers of [Palestinian] violence…[a] lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.” Slammed for being one-sided and for using the language of Israel’s critics while ignoring Israel’s own claims, the report also claimed that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had taken significant steps to clamp down on incitement, which the Israeli government has repeatedly blamed for instigating Palestinian attacks. A number of nations—including the U.S. and U.K.—have been vocal in demanding an end to stipends the PA pays to families of those killed while attacking Israelis. One organization purporting to represent a number of American Jewish groups sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson expressing “deep concern” about the report, and calling for an amended version “that properly puts the responsibility for terrorism…where it belongs on President Abbas and the PA.” A State Department spokeswoman has since clarified that “there is no justification for any acts of terrorism.” At least one Jewish group has called for Tillerson’s resignation for telling Congress that PA President Abbas said the paying of stipends to terrorists would end when he said the opposite.
