The Jerusalem Post has a reputation for informed documentation and recording of events in Israel and the Middle East. The newspaper provides excellent reporting on key issues, including the Middle East peace talks, scientific and technological developments, population studies, company histories and financial profiles. The Jerusalem Post is Israel's only English-language independent daily newspaper.
Occupying a unique place in modern journalism, the Jerusalem Post reflects the day-to-day growth of modern Israel and comprises the most authoritative record of more than 50 years of news events in the Middle East.
Established in 1932 as the Palestine Post, the Jerusalem Post rapidly became an invaluable source of information on development within the country and on Jewish life worldwide.
Throughout World War II, the Palestine Post carried the message of freedom to thousands of allied troops serving in the region. After the war, it supported the struggle for an independent homeland and opposed British restrictions on immigration to Palestine by refugees from Nazi death camps. Its coverage of the pre-state of Israel era is unique in its detail and historic perspective. No other publication covered the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur as closely as the Jerusalem Post.
Today, the Jerusalem Post continues to cover one of the most volatile regions of the world, with incisive reporting and analysis of the peace process, the intifada, nuclear proliferation, terrorism and mass immigration. It provides an immediate and independent source of news and current affairs.
