"Free from the shackles
of censorship and government control Aljazeera
has offered its audiences in the Arab world much
needed freedom of thought, independence, and room
for debate. In the rest of the world, often dominated
by the stereotypical thinking of news “heavyweights”,
Aljazeera offers a different and a new perspective."
"Al Bawaba is the only international
news agency that provides Middle East coverage
from a local perspective, using citizens of the
region to provide this unique insight, while diligently
maintaining the highest international standards
of impartial and professional journalism."
"Al-Ahram used to be described as "semi-official." I don't know what it is today. On the Arab-Israel conflict I disagree with pretty much all of what it writes (a source that insists that Tel Aviv is Israel's capital is hardly objective) but I have found it generally of interest.
The Cairo Times
"The Cairo Times is publishing less often; its site says it is regrouping. It is English language, not an English version of an Arabic site, and like the Jerusalem Post, English speakers may find it of particular interest.
The Jordan Times
link I would suggest is the Jerusalem
Post. As Israel's
daily it not only covers political issues but
has culture, "life in Israel" type
stories and the like which your readers might
find interesting. The Hebrew language Yediot
Ahranot ("Latest News") has an English
website, as does the so-called prestige Israeli
newpaper, Ha'Aretz ("The Land"). Ha'Aretz
is sometimes referred to as the New York times
of Israel, a sobriquet which people may or may
not find complimentary."
