Al Bawabh News is warning that the remake of the movie Ben Hur, being released this week in the US, is Zionist propaganda.
The movie synopsis, on the Arab site, is that it is about a fictional Jewish prince during the time of Jesus who is unjustly accused of a crime, and who vows revenge and to return to Jerusalem. This is simply an allegory for Jews returning to the Promised Land, according to the site, and falsifies Jewish history in the land of Israel. The film's release is simply "a new episode in the series of promotions for the Jews and what they claim are historical rights to the land."
"Ben -Hur lives as a slave for years after he was a rich merchant, but he vows to return to Jerusalem and revenge. Perhaps the story is meant to relate to the immediate situation of the Palestinians and the Jews and is trying to justify what the Israelis promote with their idea of their rights in Jerusalem and to return to it, and the Promised Land."
We are helpfully informed that the Hollywood studios releasing the film, Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, were founded by Jews.
The actual plot of the movie is very Christian, as Ben-Hur learns from Jesus the power of forgiveness. But the revenge plot-line seems to have resonated more with the writers at Al Bawabh.
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.
