AWDAH, AL- (The return)

Palestinian weekly magazine, published in East Jerusalem, started in 1982, politically close to the PLO. Run by Raymonda Tawil, who has also headed the Palestinian Press Agency (PPA) and whose daughter, Suha, is married to Yasir Arafat, this newspaper has been the object of much censure by the Israeli authorities.
