Your Key to Palestine
The Palestinian Initiatives for The Promotoion of Global Dialogue and Democracy
New Page 4


This is the first report issued by Keshev in the project "Media Monitoring—Words Can Kill, Too". This unique project, carried out in coordination between Keshev, an Israeli organization, and Miftah, a Palestinian organization, examines media coverage on both sides of the conflict. The goal of the project is to change patterns of media coverage in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority that give expression to prejudice, incitement and defamation, misrepresentation, de-legitimization and dehumanization of the other side.

This report examines coverage of Arafat's illness and death in three Israeli daily newspapers (Yediot Aharonot, Ma'ariv and Ha'aretz) and in the main television news editions (Channel 1, Channel 2 and Channel 10), from the first reports of his illness on October 25, 2004, until November 19, a few days after his burial.
