Each statement is read by a group of research assistants and indexed based on critical keywords and relevant contexts. The index makes it possible to study trends in statements released by al-Qaeda over the years. It is a valuable tool in studying and combating global terrorism.

Open Access Journal: Palestine-Israel Journal of Politics, Economics, and Culture

Palestine-Israel Journal of Politics, Economics, and Culture
ISSN: 0793-1395
http://www.pij.org/images/logo.jpg
The Palestine-Israel Journal is a non-profit organization, founded in 1994 by Ziad AbuZayyad and Victor Cygielman, two prominent Palestinian and Israeli journalists, and was established concurrently with the first phases of the Oslo peace process to encourage dialogue between civil societies on both sides and broaden the base of support for the peace process. It was obvious from the start that, alongside the institutional efforts of Palestinians and Israelis, channels of communication must be opened for academics and other intellectuals, opinion and policy makers, grassroots organizations and activists to voice their views and take part in the public debate for a democratic and just solution to the conflict.
