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.

As is tradition, the YMCA’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony is held annually on “First Advent Sunday”, the first day of the Advent season – the festive time before Christmas. This anticipation period begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and lasts until Christmas Eve. Before the ceremony, the guest will be treated to foods and drinks in the holiday spirit. The ceremony will include a performance by the YMCA Youth Orchestra; Prof. Gadi Scheffler playing the tower bells; Santa Claus visiting the crowd and remarks from the YMCA CEO Mrs. Rana Fahoum.
