Mondoweiss is an independent website devoted to informing readers about developments in Israel/Palestine and related US foreign policy. We provide news and analysis unavailable through the mainstream media regarding the struggle for Palestinian human rights.
Founded in 2006 as a personal blog of journalist Philip Weiss, Mondoweiss grew inside the progressive Jewish community and has become a critical resource for the movement for justice for Palestinians. We continue to follow debates over the role of Israel and nationalism in Jewish American life while seeking to reflect a diverse community of views on issues of international importance. We recognize that Jewish voices are often prioritized in discussions of Israel and seek to challenge that dynamic by bringing a universalist focus to an issue that is commonly dominated by narrow points of view.
We publish original on-the-ground reporting, analysis by scholars and personal stories. As the site has grown, we have developed a large group of regular contributors who are committed to high journalistic standards of documentable evidence and reliable sourcing.
Mondoweiss editors select content for the site on the basis of our shared commitment to news professionalism as well as justice for Palestinians. We do not have a single editorial position on specific issues, but aim to build a diverse online community, with special focus on viewpoints generally ignored by large media outlets.
Mondoweiss’s Reach: Mondoweiss is present on all major social networking platforms and growing engaged followers on each of them. In total, we are reaching hundreds of thousands of people each month. We are actively developing new channels on popular and emerging platforms.
The United States is our primary audience location, but we have substantial readership in the U.K., Canada and elsewhere. Pageviews, sessions, and new users consistently increase on Mondoweiss.net, as do equivalent measures of audience in social media. Despite the difficult environment for online publishers, interest in the issues we cover and the quality of our content draw readers and retain them.
