Haaretz.com Senior Editor Bradley Burston has been named a recipient of the Eliav-Sartawi Awards for Middle East Journalism, an annual prize for Arab, Israeli and international journalists.
Burston's winning piece, "Let their people go," appears in his blog "A Special Place in Hell" on the Haaretz Website.
The Eliav-Sartawi Awards are given by Search for Common Ground, an organization founded in 1982, which works to transform the way the world deals with conflict. The award is in recognition and encouragement of journalists whose writing fosters better understanding and political dialogue in the Middle East.
The Common Ground Awards were created in 1998 to honor outstanding accomplishments in conflict resolution, community building, and peace-building.
Two other journalists have also been honored this year: For an Arab publication, Vivian Salama, of the Daily Star in Egypt, and for an international publication, Simone Korkus, writing in the Belgian weekly magazine Knack.
