The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

The Jewish Agency May Become a Victim of a Rift Between Moscow and Jerusalem (VIDEO)

Nearly 20,000 Russians have immigrated to Israel since the start of 2022, nearly double the amount for all of 2021

After more than 30 years, the Jewish Agency in Russia, which processes emigrants to Israel, is in danger of being shut down. But even if its doors close for good, some say Russian Jews will still find a way to leave. Nearly 20,000 Russians immigrated to Israel in the first half of 2022, nearly double the amount for all of 2021. And the number is expected to continue to rise even as the government of President Vladimir Putin clamps down on the Jewish Agency’s activities in Russia.
