Palestine Times Launched in West Bank

The Palestine Times, the first English-language Palestinian daily newspaper since the Palestinian Authority was created in 1994, has gone on sale for the first time.

"Maintaining our independence is the primary objective of our newspaper," editor in chief and one of the newspaper's proprietors, Othman Alhaj Mohammed told a news conference Monday in Ramallah, where the daily is based.

The Palestine Times is the first foreign-language daily to appear in the Palestinian territories since the English-language Al-Fajr went out of business in the 1990s.
The newspaper, whose first edition was 12 pages in colour, will also circulate in Israel.

Very interesting website you've got here. I also added my website on PalestineBlogs, I'm from Sweden, of Palestinian origin though, but I've never been in Palestine, but I don't have to. Palestine's in me. Both heart and soul, that is.

Med vänliga hälsningar, och en god jul på er alla!
