For second year, Egyptian Ramadan series treats Jews like human beings

Even though the news media in Egypt seems to have become more explicitly antisemitic in recent months, its movies and TV series seem to have been going in the other direction.

One of last year's centerpiece Ramadan series was called "Jewish Quarter,"a historic drama where a Jewish family in the 1950s was depicted generally admirably.

This year, a series called "Mammon and Associates" had a Jewish character who was also treated like a normal human being.

According to Egyptian media, this is causing a backlash among some of the public. However, they are quick to point out, the directors are generally uniformly anti-Zionist and against any sort of "normalization" with Israel, and actors and filmmakers have been making a very sharp distinction between how they think about Jews and Zionists.





We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
