New Palestinian English daily to go on sale at Israeli news stands

RAMALLAH - A new Palestinian daily newspaper in English was
launched on Monday with the hope of winning readers in Israel as
well as in Palestinian territories.

There are three Palestinian dailies in Arabic.

The Palestine Times is aimed at the generally well-educated
minority who speak English in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as
well as at Israelis.

"It will be the first Palestinian newspaper to be sold on Israeli
news stands," Othman Haj Mohammed, the paper's editor in chief,
told reporters. "We have acquired a licence ... and will begin
distribution in Israel at the end of this week."

Mohammed said the paper would have an Israeli correspondent to
write about Israeli affairs and an Israeli Arab reporter to cover
that community.

Publishers said the Palestine Times would be the first English
daily for Palestinians since they gained a measure of self-rule
in the 1990s. They said it would be independent of any political
faction and funded only through sales and advertising.

Mohammed acknowledged the difficult economic environment. The
Palestinian economy is estimated to have shrunk 10 percent since
a Hamas-led Islamist government took office in March and came
under Western sanctions.

"There is a risk, but it is calculated," said Mohammed. "It's
worth giving it a shot from the heart."
