Biography | A native of Nablus and one of the most prominent figures in patriotic journalism, al-Taher traveled to Cairo where he established the weekly al-Shura newspaper in 1924, whose slogan was “a newspaper that researches the affairs of Arab and oppressed countries.” His office turned into a symposium in which Arab patriots from the east and the west of the Arab world gather to discuss strengthening solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and the struggles of other Arab peoples. In late 1947, al-Taher rejected the partitioning plan and attacked the United Nations’ body that approved it. He spent his last years in Beirut, where he set up a literary salon in his apartment.
