The Egyptian miniseries "Jewish Quarter" has started airing.

It is a soap opera about a Jewish woman and an Egyptian army officer who fall in love between Nasser's 1952 revolution and the 1956 Sinai campaign. The series shows the Jews of Egypt in the 1950s in a relatively positive light, although it is still very anti-Zionist.

The screenwriter says he did this deliberately.

Dr. Medhat al-Adel says that the series is meant to respond to accusations of Muslims being racists and terrorists who want to wipe out the entire world, and instead confirms that Egypt is a state receptive to non-Muslims.

Which means that this work of fiction is also meant to be a work of propaganda.

In other "Jewish Quarter" news, the drama seems to be very popular. There are many articles synopsizing the first episode. It can be seen here:

The anti-Zionist leader of the almost extinct Egyptian Jewish community complained that it was inaccurate in how it depicted women's fashions, and what the inside of a synagogue looks like, and whether Jews owned refrigerators in the 1950s.

Qatar-finded Arab-TV decided not to show the series, leading to improbable accusations that they didn't believe the series was pro-Israel enough.
