The Electronic Intifada
The Electronic Intifada is an independent online news publication and educational resource focusing on Palestine, its people, politics, culture and place in the world.
Founded in 2001, The Electronic Intifada has won awards and earned widespread recognition for publishing original, high-quality news and analysis, and first-person accounts and reviews. The Electronic Intifada’s writers and reporters include Palestinians and others living inside Palestine and everywhere else that news about Palestine and Palestinians is made.
Our reporting is built on a foundation of documented evidence and fact-checking. We also publish news from leading human rights organizations, activists and news agencies with strong records.
As a publication, The Electronic Intifada generally does not take positions on specific issues, but it does provide a forum where commonly excluded perspectives and challenging viewpoints are presented. Its editorial choices are informed by the commitment of its cofounders and editors to universal principles of human rights, international law, anti-racism and equal justice.
The people who are responsible for producing The Electronic Intifada are the current members of the editorial team.
The Electronic Intifada is committed to publishing a diversity of viewpoints. Articles published by The Electronic Intifada represent the views of their authors and do not necessarily represent the opinions of the publication or its editors.
The Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU)
The Institute for Middle East Understanding (IMEU) is an independent non-profit organization that provides journalists with quick access to information about Palestine and the Palestinians, as well as expert sources, both in the United States and in the Middle East. Both through its website and its staff, the IMEU works with journalists to increase the public’s understanding about the socio-economic, political, and cultural aspects of Palestine, Palestinians, and Palestinian Americans.
The IMEU assists journalists who are working on stories about Palestine or the Palestinians by:
• Providing access to the latest news stories, expert analysis, photographs and other visuals
• Maintaining an updated panel of credible experts and analysts who can comment publicly on the news, life and culture of Palestinians and Palestinian Americans.
• Putting journalists in contact with Palestinian women and men from all walks of life – including artists, poets, businesspeople, medical professionals, policymakers, and more – who are willing to be interviewed.
• Compiling an extensive library of images, maps, studies, reports and polls relating to Palestine and the Palestinians
• Providing a comprehensive set of answers to the most commonly asked questions about Palestine and the Palestinians
• Supplying links to websites and other online materials that offer journalists a wide range of information on the Palestinian experience. The IMEU provides these links as a service to journalists but it does not necessarily endorse the views or opinions of the various sources.
The IMEU was founded in 2005 by a group of concerned Americans who want to foster an increased understanding among Americans about Palestine and the Palestinians. The IMEU is an independent organization and is not affiliated with any government or political party. It is funded through individual donations and foundations.
Mondoweiss is an independent website devoted to informing readers about developments in Israel/Palestine and related US foreign policy. We provide news and analysis unavailable through the mainstream media regarding the struggle for Palestinian human rights.
Founded in 2006 as a personal blog of journalist Philip Weiss, Mondoweiss grew inside the progressive Jewish community and has become a critical resource for the movement for justice for Palestinians. We continue to follow debates over the role of Israel and nationalism in Jewish American life while seeking to reflect a diverse community of views on issues of international importance. We recognize that Jewish voices are often prioritized in discussions of Israel and seek to challenge that dynamic by bringing a universalist focus to an issue that is commonly dominated by narrow points of view.
We publish original on-the-ground reporting, analysis by scholars and personal stories. As the site has grown, we have developed a large group of regular contributors who are committed to high journalistic standards of documentable evidence and reliable sourcing.
Mondoweiss editors select content for the site on the basis of our shared commitment to news professionalism as well as justice for Palestinians. We do not have a single editorial position on specific issues, but aim to build a diverse online community, with special focus on viewpoints generally ignored by large media outlets. Writing published on Mondoweiss represents the views of its authors and does not necessarily represent the opinions of the site or its editors.
