Fauda. A Prevision Of What Was To Come?
I haven't seen this TV series, but I have read in the i newspaper (Simon Kelner, I think) that it's about a (fictional) Hamas plan to carry out a shocking attack on Israel that will provoke an Israeli response that will ignite a world-shaking war between arab and jew.
Bush fell for it in 2001, and lashed out , and Israel (arguably far more justified) have been doing the same.
Fortunately, Israel have learned a thing or two and are trying to throw off the ultra-right and ultra-orthodox grip on their politics.
Any views? (daft question!)

no no no no
this is a hit series in Araby, made by Israeli television based on the bald hero's ( real life exploits). His dad is a Baghdadi Jew and is killed later on - having mused - how much happier we were in Baghdad where everyone realised we just had to rub along....
But I am telling you the plaart
The hit side was because Hamas are not portrayed as inhuman monsters ( see other AB threads) but human beings in a resistance. " Do I not bleed when you hit me?" There is a lof that ( hitting) and yes I realise I have put Shylocks words in the mouth of a muslim
The first series I think our hero ( isaeli agent) identifies a terrorist - actually he befriends a boxer and trains him and then betrays him.
Human side very well done.
Various tropes re-occur - they pretend to have an injured man in order to gain entry to a mosque in the name of charity and humanity and then beat up the imam inside
just as in Lucien Lacombe, the SS pretend to have a gun injury to entrap the French GP - will he report the injured resistant or report him as martial law requires ?
arabs love it
also says (PP) The Black Crows is a MUST-SEE series. Try episode 2 first - you may not be able to continue
