This week a television channel called Jewish News 1 started broadcasting throughout Europe, said Jewish News 1 producer Peter Dickenson and Brussels Bureau Chief Alexander Zanzer on Wednesday.

“Some Jews came up with the idea of how to change the world and they wanted to compete with other news channels including one in particular,“ Zanzer said over the phone from Belgium. “I won’t say which one but it starts with al and end with ra,” referring to the Qatari-based Al Jazeera.

The nascent Jewish news organization is jointly owned by Jewish businessmen Igor Kolomoisky and Vadim Rabinovich, two of the richest men in Ukraine.
