This Bulletin

We, in the Permanent Observer Mission of Palestine to the United Nations, considered the first issue of Palestine & The UN as a trial issue. The reaction has been encouraging and perhaps it's time to share with you our thinking in this regard.

The motivation behind our decision to produce a monthly bulletin was essentially what we perceived to be a lack of media coverage of Palestinian developments at the United Nations as well as the massive amount of misinformation and disinformation about Palestinian positions and policies in general in the media.

Of course, this modest effort will not solve such a complex problem but, at least, it provides us with a tool to explain those Palestinian policies and actions at the United Nations and elsewhere, and it will serve as a tool to better communicate with the U.N. community, Palestinian, Arab, American and other interested persons, groups and institutions around the world. Our goal is to present important developments and events from a Palestinian perspective and to explain Palestinian positions with regard to those events.

Our job in this regard is not easy, given the expected diversity of readers and the limited human and financial resources available to us. We will basically depend on your continued interest and we welcome your input and comments with the regard to the contents of the bulletin. We look forward to a lively interaction with our readers.
