Algeria calls for intensified Arabic media support for Palestine

Algerian Communication Minister Hamid Grine called on Thursday for intensified Arabic media support for the pivotal Arab issue –Palestine, Quds Press reported.

While speaking in the 46th meeting of the Arab Information Ministers Council, Grine said that his call come in the light of the “state terrorism” practiced against the Palestinians in order to erase the Palestinian humanitarian cause and cultural identity.

Grine also called for continuous media support to disclose the Israeli practices against the Palestinians until they are able to achieve their legitimate and established rights and build their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Meanwhile, he urged the Arab media to develop and renew the Arab media discourse to spread the values of tolerance and acceptance of the other, and to deal with intellectual and religious radicalisation.

He emphasised the importance of supporting and integrating efforts to eradicate unemployment, illiteracy, illegal emigration and cybercrime.

The minister said that problems in the Arab region including terrorism, radicalisation and campaigns to stir up trouble and tensions in order to plunder the wealth and hinder development efforts in the Arab world, require the development of a media strategy tailored to the Arab media system.
