The International Palestine Conference on media and communications was held in Istanbul on April 23-24, 2014, and was attended by over 400 international media personalities and organisations. The conference was held to address the growing need to find a framework for joint communication, coordination and interaction between media outlets in order to better serve the Palestinian cause. There is an increasing necessity to face the attempts to weaken the cause and isolate it from its Arab and Islamic depth as well as its humanitarian dimension and exclude it from the media attention.

Faith in British Justice Rewarded
07 April 2012
Palestinian community leader Raed Salah today won his appeal against the British government's attempts to deport him from the United Kingdom. More than 2 months since the latest of a number of legal hearings, the Vice President of the Upper Immigration Tribunal has ruled that "the Secretary of State's decision... appears to have been entirely unnecessary" and that Sheikh Raed's appeal against the deportation order "succeeds on all grounds".
