NOTICE: After our two year hiatus, World Report News will be launching back up again soon. With the generous support of donors, WRN will be bigger and better than ever. We will no longer operate as a student journal, and instead will be employing experienced field and area professionals full-time. Our new directors and executives are veterans in the fields of media and conflict affairs. We hope to be operating around the world by February of 2015.
Our new company has been rebuilt from the ground up, with new directors, new executives, and a brand new mission. Our new mandate will be to cover violence in emerging and escalating states around the world, to explore the causes of and attitudes toward that violence, and to disseminate that news to an American and English-speaking international audience. Our aim is to identify risk, to address the causes of risk through information and awareness, to prevent violence in its earliest phases, and to follow through on conflict converge until peace has been restored.
If you share our mission of early phase conflict prevention and effective non-military response, we encourage you to make a donation to support the upcoming news company. The company will also be a nonprofit, so every dollar counts. The more funds we get, the more news we can deliver, and the more substantial impact in war and peace affairs we can offer. Please contact Matthew Bishop at Bishop@GWU.edu to discuss donations and ask any questions you may have about how funds will be applied.
We need your support to launch this organization, and we understand that you place great trust in us by lending aid. We believe in this mission and we understand the gravity of our initiative. We sincerely hope that you share our concerns and will consider investing in peace media.
If you want to contribute to our work as a writer, editor, executive, liaison or in any other fashion, please send an email directly to Matthew Bishop using the same Bishop@GWU.edu address.
Check back with us in 2015, and we will have some great stories for you!
Have a great summer, global citizens, and thanks for making this possible! In peace and solidarity, Your friends at WRN

A Complete List of Those Killed in Gaza, Tuesday - Monday July 8-14 So far, there have been no deaths in Israel from the conflict.
The conflict reportedly began when four Palestinian children were kidnapped and murdered by Zionist extremists. In retaliation, three Israeli civilians were abducted and burned alive in Jerusalem Forest, where, thereafter, one more Palestinian civilian was abducted and burned. This last Palestinian's American cousin was almost beaten to death by police in a protest that ensued after his funeral, and Netanyahu thereafter initiated an intensive bombing campaign in which nearly 200 Palestinian civilians have been killed in less than one week.
The effort to ameliorate the conflict in its earliest phases requires full international pressure against Netanyahu's resort to the use of military force, and relentless coverage from news outlets. With this need in mind, we are collecting data from Palestine News Network, The International Middle East Media Center, and other reliable on-site sources to publish a list of the dead.
Please keep in mind that at the time of this writing, South Sudan and Iraq are both on the verge of another civil war. Almost four thousand people died in combat, civilian and military, in Iraq in the month of June alone. Be aware that as we cover Palestine, these and other devastating situations continue to develop and demand our attention. Hours before this writing, 35 people were killed in a single blast in Baghdad and officials there worry of renewed civil war in the streets. While the emergent war in Gaza demands our response, we should not look away from developed wars in other lands.
