The latest addition to the list of TV shows supporting Israel in its propaganda war against the Palestinians is Netflix’s The Messiah, writes Hawari

Israel‘s latest propaganda war is being waged through slick tv shows on various media service providers such as Netflix and HBO.While racist depictions of Arabs and the glorification of Israel is not new in the film and TV industry, there has recently been a surge in programmes venerating the Israeli secret services while demonising Palestinians as threats to global security and erasing their history….”

 

“…This latest surge of programmes focusing on Israel and trying to show it as a force for good is a clear attempt to win the current legitimisation battle.
