|Hanna Siniora, Jerusalem
Han var på den tiden chefredaktör för Al Fajr, tidningen som trotsade förbudet att publicera bilder på Arafat. Hans insatser för den tidens fredsprocess ska inte underskattas. Al Fajr höll sina läsare informerade där andra spelade ett politiskt spel.
Idag är hans betydelse större i det palestinska samhället,skulle jag tro utifrån vad Wiki skriver:
He is also a member of the Palestine National Council and the chairperson of the Palestinian-American Chamber of Commerce.
An early proponent of dialogue and negotiations with Israel, Siniora has a long history of involvement in pro-peace activities.
For his lifetime commitment to working towards Palestinian-Israeli peace, he was awarded the Order of the Knights of Malta.
Born in Jerusalem in 1937, Siniora completed his Bachelor of Science in pharmacy at a university in Benares, India in 1969, at which time he returned to the West Bank. In February 1974, he was asked to manage the Arabic language newspaper Al Fajr after its editor-in-chief, Yusuf Nasr, was kidnapped. He established an English language version of Al Fajr in 1980 and served as its editor, and was later granted the position of editor-in-chief of the Arabic-language version in 1983.
