Israel's call to ban ‘Farha’ shows they are afraid of their own shadow
PETALING JAYA - Israel’s outrage over Netflix movie “Farha”, calling for its ban and censor shows that they are afraid of their own shadows.
Author of “The Prisoners’ Diaries” Puan Sri Norma Hashim said Israel has managed to survive all these these years based on lies and the movie depicted it in a negative light.
“Of course Israelis do not want people to watch it because they managed to survive all these years based on lies.
“It was established on the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians so they don’t have the rights for the land and they always say there were no people there but the Palestinians were already there,” she said in an interview with Sinar Daily on its Fireside Chat programme.
Despite how Israel did not want people to watch the movie, Norma said it was crucial for the public to watch it as it carried the truth of how Israel had treated Palestinians all these years.
Norma said the movie covered only a small portion of what Zionists had done to the Palestinians.
She further shared that another film entitled “Tantura” would also be aired on Neflix depicting another massacre.
In the movie, Norma said it showed the terrible crimes committed against the Palestinians regardless of whether they were men, women or children.
“I’m glad that over the years it is finally coming out. The truth will finally prevail,” she said.
Norma, who is also Viva Palestina Malaysia treasurer said she hoped that there would be justice for the Palestinians and their rights would be returned.
Therefore, she said it was significant to raise awareness of what was happening and reach out to the people especially the young generation.
“A lot of people are listening, the younger generation now are also questioning what are the rights they have and why Israelis allowed Jewish to come but not Palestinians.
“So I feel that we are getting there another few years and people have been talking about this publicly and on social media,” she said.
