Over the last couple weeks there’s been a whirlwind of news from Israel/Palestine and we’ve done our best to bring it to you as quickly and reliably as possible. In addition to our own intrepid Allison Deger based in Ramallah, we’ve been fortunate to expand our team of correspondents to include freelance reporters doing incredible work on the ground. Sheren Khalel, Matthew Vickery and Kelly Lynn have brought us breaking news and indelible images.
So please help us continue to expand our coverage from Israel/Palestine by giving a tax-deductible donation to our summer fundraiser today.
Usually we would be promoting our fundraiser much more often on the site, but the news from the region takes precedent. Still, we have a new incentive for those to give a donation of $30 or more – a copy of Ali Abunimah’s groundbreaking new book The Battle for Justice in Palestine. We’ve covered the book extensively and you can read an excerpt, an interview with Abunimah and Josh Ruebner’s glowing review. This gift is just another way for us to say thank you for your support.
As Abunimah explains in that book, Palestinians are today winning a battle of ideas about what the future looks like. “It is precisely to prevent us from breaking out of the strictly-ndorced limits of current thinking that Israel and its lobbies are investing so much in efforts to stop more discussion–especially in the United States, Israel’s indispensible sponsor,” he writes.
Thank you again for all you do to support the site, and we hope we’re holding up our end of the bargain. The mainstream media is getting better at reporting the daily struggle from Israel/Palestine, but there is still a long way for it to go. We promise to remain on the story with news, analysis and perspectives you will read in few other places. Please help us continue to grow by giving a tax-deductible donation today. Thanks.
