Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

The Future of US-Israel Relations Under the Biden Administration

The Future of US-Israel Relations Under the Biden Administration

The election of Joe Biden in the United States demonstrates a major shift in American public opinion following Trump’s one-term presidency. Emerging from a period of populist nationalism and ‘America First’ policies, experts predict that the new Biden Administration’s foreign policy agenda includes re-engagement with old allies and increased involvement at multilateral organizations like the UN and NATO. However, some fear that Biden’s policies could also include a new Iran Nuclear Deal and a rollback of Israel-friendly policies instituted under President Trump. What are the implications for the new Biden Administration on American foreign policy towards Israel and the Middle East as a whole? How will the Biden Administration approach Iran and the Palestinians? Will the Biden Administration continue to uphold many policies favorable towards Israel instituted under the Trump Administration?

Join the International Diplomacy Initiative on March 14, 2021 to learn the answers to these questions and more through the insight of Mr. Nadav Tamir, distinguished Israeli diplomat and policy experts, who will draw from his decades of expertise and first-hand experience working in American-Israeli relations.

The International Diplomacy Initiative (IDI) is an international, student-run nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing diplomacy throughout the world. Engaging students and practitioners with real-world diplomatic experience through lectures and other events, IDI seeks to provide the next-generation of diplomats with the skills needed to enact global change.

The Initiative cooperates with embassies, multilateral organizations, NGOs, and more to engage young people in Israel and around the world.

Meet the lecturer Mr. Nadav Tamir, Executive Director, J Street Israel:

Upon returning to Israel, he joined the Policy Planning Unit of the Israeli Foreign Ministry where he served until accepting the position of senior adviser to the president under Shimon Peres.
