Al Jazeera  is the largest and most controversial Arabic News Channel in the Middle East, offering news coverage 24 hours a day from around the world, with a focus on the hottest regions of conflict. The channel that sent shockwaves through the whole Arab world from its first day on air has become a global name which people, governments, and decision-makers cannot afford to ignore. Al Jazeera aims to break the language barrier by launching an english language Al Jazeera station set to air in March 2006.
