Haqiqat al-Amr (The Truth of the Matter) was a weekly published by the General Federation of Labor in Eretz Israel (on the masthead it appeared as the “General Federation of Jewish Labor in Palestine”) between the years 1937 and 1960. The newspaper stressed two main issues: the vital need to develop the country through modern technology and workers' welfare, which was also the outcome of their professional unionizing, raising the level of education, and modernization. The newspaper covered political issues, mainly from across the Jewish world, and focused on the unstable security situation in the country. At first glance, it would appear that the newspaper addressed the Jewish public, and used the third person to refer to the Arab residents. However, a closer look shows that it addressed both publics equally, the Jewish Arab-speaking public and the Arab public, in order to influence their political consciousness in all matters related to the Zionist enterprise. The newspaper reserved space for Hebrew language instruction, with the aim to help those who wanted to learn Hebrew and also those interested in learning Arabic.
