Here's how the Jordanian Media Institute describes its goals:


JMI aims to become an unparalleled Centre of Excellence in the Middle East to help improve the standards, raise the integrity and rebuild public trust in journalism in Jordan and the region at large. Our programmes, which feature practical training, innovative curricula and world-class facilities, will enable our graduates to consistently challenge the current level of media production in the Arab world.


Our groundbreaking, home-grown programmes meet with the highest international standards and acknowledge the distinctiveness of Arab culture and philosophy. Our students are trained to become world-class journalists who possess the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to truly excel within this region’s unique media environment.
Sounds good, right? So good that JMI has attracted a Who's Who of major donors and partners:

JMI has a link to a sister site in Arabic called "JMI Journalists." On the sidebar of every page of that site there is a section called "Success Models" - to give young Jordanian journalists a role model to emulate.

The first person listed in that section is Ahlam Tamimi.

She is a terrorist, responsible for planning and implementation of the Sbarro pizza shop bombing that killed 15, including seven children.

Tamimi - who is now working as a journalist in Jordan after being released in a prisoner swap - has a fawning bio on the site, where her terror background is highlighted. They say that she went to "Martyr's University," as Birzeit University was called because of how many terrorists came from there.

The bio says that she insisted to be the first woman terrorist for Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades.

Apparently, an unrepentant murderer represents "the distinctiveness of Arab culture and philosophy" that JMI wants people to know about.

Drop what you are doing now and email to the heads of the corporations, governments and agencies listed above and ask them why they are funding a program that thinks child-murderers are heroes. They will not want to be associated with this.

In the end, they will end up pressuring JMI to only take down the article, but msot or all will keep funding an organization that enthusiastically supports terrorists. Most of them will not withdraw their funding, but one or two might. It is still worth it to shame these donors into checking how their money is spent.

There is a huge disconnect between the values that Western donors want to help spread around the world and how the recipients actually feel about those Western values - but they eagerly accept their money anyway.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
