|The fortress at Khaybar, today|
The purpose of the series isn't historical, however. It is meant to be a thinly disguised parable of how treacherous Jews have been for centuries. As the director says, the series is intended to "review the history of the Jews in the Arabian Peninsula and the conflict with them until they came out of the Khaybar with a focus on the details of their social and economic lives, and their plots and temperament characterized by racism and treachery."
Other articles describing the script went a little further, saying "The series focuses on the social and economic life of religious Jews at the time and how they managed and controlled other tribes. It reveals the features of their lives and their personal characteristics throughout history which embodies the spirit of enmity and hatred of others beside the treacherous nature of their repeated betrayals and abhorrent racism.
The script writer has told the media that his story tells of "the extent of hostility between Jews and the Arabs from the days of Moses, and discusses Jewish betrayal and false promises."
