Now, it looks as if that long-overdue but vital necessity will be realised. It's reported in the Jerusalem Post that USSR-born Israeli billionaire and philanthropist Alexander Mashevich plans to establish a "Jewish Al Jazeera," a pro-Israel news channel that will "represent Israel on an international level, with real information".
Observed Mr Mashevich at the Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal conference in Washington DC:
"Every day and every hour people get negative information about Israel. Therefore, the most important thing is to represent Israel on an international level, with real information....
I think this idea should be implemented. I already spoke about it several years ago with Israeli government officials and with influential people in the Jewish world, and everyone agrees that such a channel is necessary," he said.See more: http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=215498
Let us fervently hope that the idea meets no setbacks and speedily comes to fruition. The monetary expense is enormous, but the penalty for failing to establish such a station is more enormous still.
