A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      In what way do they ‘suffer’? Do their children routinely get run over or taken away to get tortured and imprisoned? Do their streets get bombed at times when children would be walking to or from school? Do they awaken to find teams of armed soldiers evicting them from their homes and see bulldozers revving up to demolish their homes? Do they face check-points and military scrutiny on their way to the shops, or to football matches, or to work? Do they get routinely bullied and harassed with no recourse to complaint? Does their electricity, food and water routinely get cut off or restricted? In what way do they “suffer more than anybody”?
