"Mondoweiss has become indispensable reading for those seeking critical perspectives on issues related to Israel and how they are debated in the United States. In particular, I appreciate the reporting and analysis on debates within the American Jewish community on the appropriate role for members of this community in advocating for pro-Israel positions, or alternatively for peace with justice - and what that justice looks like. Through its work, Mondoweiss adds to a growing diversity of voices who are responding to the complete failure of conventional analysis and diplomacy, by placing equal rights and universal values firmly at the center of the agenda."
--Ali Abunimah, Co-Founder of Electronic Intifada and author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
"Mondoweiss is the best and most intelligent site out there on the Palestinian and Israeli conflict."
--Chris Hedges, Journalist, The Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio, The Dallas Morning News and The New York Times, for which he was a foreign correspondent for 15 years.
Mondoweiss is a news website devoted to covering American foreign policy in the Middle East, chiefly from a progressive Jewish perspective.
It has four principal aims:
- To publish important developments touching on Israel/Palestine, the American Jewish community and the shifting debate over US foreign policy in a timely fashion.
- To publish a diversity of voices to promote dialogue on these important issues.
- To foster the movement for greater fairness and justice for Palestinians in American foreign policy.
- To offer alternatives to pro-Zionist ideology as a basis for American Jewish identity.
