Jewish 100, 2014: Patrick Drahi – Business
Patrick Drahi is not listed because he is currently the wealthiest person in Israel (which does happen to be the case), but because of his Israeli current affairs channel i24news, now aired across the United States, Africa and Europe. In English, French and Arabic, tens of millions of viewers can learn about the latest world news, from a fresh perspective. i24news also has a robust online presence. The channel’s CEO, Frank Melloul, has said one of i24‘s goals is to change the international “point of view about Israel” and battle prejudice and ignorance about Israel with facts and diversity.
