Israel haters urge Netflix to drop ‘racist’ hit series ‘Fauda’.
Anti-Semitic and terror-sympathizer BDS movement threatens legal action if streaming company doesn’t remove TV show about Mista’arvim undercover elite counter-terrorism unit, claiming it ‘gives legitimization to war criminals’.
“Fauda” has enjoyed unparalleled success internationally for an Israeli TV show, prompting Netflix to commit to the second season, as well as two other show ideas that they are working on.
In a response to the letter, Avi Issacharoff, co-creator of the series, said he regretted the BDS action but welcomed the publicity.
“We want to thank the BDS movement in whose merit those Palestinians who have not yet seen ‘Fauda’ will now find a way to watch the series,” he said. “Just yesterday we talked with a friend in Gaza who didn’t stop praising the first season of the series.”
“It is regrettable to see the BDS movement trying to harm an Israeli work whatever it may be, no matter what its content,” he continued. “We have no choice but to wish them no success.”
There was no immediate response from Netflix Israel.
