Creators of "Palestinian Stories" on Netflix - Supporters of BDS | Israel today


"If You Will" Review: 25 of the 28 Films in the "Palestinian Stories" Category - Directed by BDS Supporters • Movement Chairman: "One-Way Incitement" • Netflix: "Believe in Artistic Freedom"

Last Friday, it was revealed in "Israel Today" that the Netflix film and series company has established "Palestinian Stories" - a category of 32 films, most of which are harsh, inciting and one-sided content against Israel and IDF soldiers, in order to "share our narrative as an alternative to news reporting ", In the words of one of the directors.

It now turns out that the filmmakers themselves have signed BDS petitions, and some are even active in the movement.

In fact, with its approval and encouragement, the company provides a platform for traffic that spreads its message is banned in the U.S. and many countries, which also imposes sanctions on anyone who cooperates with it.

According to a study by the If You Will movement, 25 of the 28 films already in the category were directed by BDS supporters.

Thus, for example, during Operation Wall Guard, "Capture Ghosts" creator Rad Andoni wrote on his Facebook account that "Homemade missiles in Gaza do not express a terrorist act, but a legitimate response of people under siege."

The film deals with liberated Palestinian terrorists, who recreate the course of their investigations, and does not deal at all with the official reason why these terrorists were in prison.

The study also revealed that 16 out of 19 creators are BDS supporters who have signed petitions to boycott Israel.

One of the petitions, signed by 12 of them, read: "Last May, the Israeli government carried out another massacre in Gaza, bombing Palestinians indiscriminately. This is not a conflict, this is apartheid."

Matan Peleg, chairman of "If You Will": "Netflix is ​​acting with blatant irresponsibility bordering on malicious.

In one fell swoop, the company has made itself the world's leading arm for antisemitic and anti - Israeli propaganda.

There is no other country in the world against which Netflix has raised such a long battery of hard-hitting propaganda and criticism films.

In its course, Netflix brings about the shedding of the blood of Israeli and Jewish citizens around the world.

Freedom of expression is not the creation of one-way incitement on international broadcast platforms. "

Netflix responded: "Netflix believes in artistic freedom and constantly invests in authentic stories from around the world. The Palestinian film collection will present the depth and variety of the Palestinian experience, and explore the lives of people, dreams, families, friendships and love. "Recently, she posted an official statement on Twitter and Instagram describing her position against anti-Semitism in all its forms, including the alarming increase in hate crimes and Holocaust denial."
