More about the PIJ

Founded in 1994 by Ziad AbuZayyad and Victor Cygielman, two prominent Palestinian and Israeli journalists, the Palestine-Israel Journal is a non-profit organization that was established concurrently with the first phases of the Oslo peace process to encourage dialogue between civil societies on both sides and to broaden the base of support for the peace process. It was obvious that alongside the institutional efforts of Palestinians and Israelis, channels of communication must be opened for academics and other intellectuals, opinion and policy makers, grassroots organizations and activists to voice their views and take part in the public debate for a democratic and just solution to the conflict.

As an independent publication with an often critical voice, the Palestine-Israel Journal provides background material and in-depth analysis of various aspects of the conflict from the perspective of both sides, thus helping to shed light on the complex issues dividing Israelis and Palestinians and the relationship between the two peoples. Through the journal, our website and internet newsletter, and the program of round tables and public events that are organized in conjunction with each issue, the Palestine-Israel Journal aims:

* to promote rapprochement and better understanding between the two peoples;
* to provide a platform for Palestinians and Israelis - academics, public figures, journalists
and other experts to take part in the on-going debate;
* to raise awareness, inform and clarify to a wider public within both communities about the
issues at the crux of the conflict and how they impact on the lives of both peoples, from the
perspective of each side;
* to foster, in a climate of constructive criticism and mutual respect, active dialogue and
exchanges within and between the two civil societies.

Despite the extensive media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, much of this comes in sound-bites and as immediate reaction to daily events on the ground, generally from the perspective of one of the sides only. There is therefore a need for means of communication that can increase each side's exposure to and understanding of the other, and promote sober and meaningful exchanges between the two peoples around central issues.

Heidi, might it make sense to publish the summary of the Discussion on the current situation at the PIJ editorial board meeting, Jan 14/09 that was sent out by PIJ?

I am not sure..I wonder if any of the participants there would like to use this forum to discuss their views??

Do Israelis realize how their perception throiughout the world has been damaged by the present overpowering offensive into Gaza, by air and land?

Balance in media coverage must lead to better empathy between countries.

I know very little about Palestine-Isreal, but I do believe that this may be a good place to start.

May I suggest that the PI Journal post one or two articles on line that you would choose as the basis of some discussion? The material there is could very good to generate feedback from this group.

best wishes
