Palestine Times, the only Palestinian newspaper in Israel, will resume publishing their newspaper. Good news indeed for Palestinians under occupation to articulate their problems in the West Bank and Gaza. They should hire a San Diego web design company to develop their website.
The Palestine Times, which closed down in May due to financial problems, plans to resume publishing in August, according to its founder and editor-in-chief, Othman Mohammed. When it was launched last November, it became the first Palestinian paper to be sold in Israel since the 1967 Six Day War.
Mohammed said the paper, which is privately financed, had losses of close to $500,000. Nevertheless, he said, he was determined to relaunch it, because it ” is very important to us Palestinians to report… Palestinian stories from an… independent Palestinian point of view.”
The Times received worldwide attention from the outset, staffed by foreign and Palestinian journalists. Despite its auspicious start, Mohammed said it did not receive enough local recognition.
