The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

100 Israeli and Palestinian Artists Donate Works in Solidarity With Gaza Residents

100 Israeli and Palestinian Artists Donate Works in Solidarity With Gaza Residents

A group of prominent local Israeli and Palestinian artists has come together for a fundraising campaign in solidarity with residents of the Gaza Strip, who live under ongoing Israeli closure and in dire humanitarian conditions. All proceeds from the campaign will be donated to Gisha – Legal Center for Freedom of Movement, an organization that works to promote freedom of movement for Palestinians to and from the Gaza Strip.

Freedom of movement is a precondition for realizing other basic rights, such as the rights to family life, to livelihood, to health, and to dignity. Since it was founded in 2005, Gisha has assisted tens of thousands of Palestinians in overcoming severe and sweeping restrictions on movement imposed by Israel, which infringe on their human rights and impact countless aspects of everyday life in the Strip.

Each artist has donated one artwork, two prints of which will be made available for purchase in four possible sizes, priced 180 ILS, 270 ILS, 380 ILS, or 650 ILS, according to the size. At the end of the campaign, the artists will sign their artworks and the purchased prints will be delivered to their owners.

The campaign was initiated by Fountain Art Collective and Culture of Solidarity.
