More Arab states ban new Exodus movie

  • Match
Several more Arab countries have followed Morocco and then Egypt, which banned the release of the film “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Egypt on Friday barred what its culture minister called a “Zionist film”, adding that it “gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies, and that’s why we have decided to ban it,” Egypt's Culture Minister Gaber Asfour told the French news agency AFP.

A day earlier, Morocco banned the Ridley Scott movie as it was about to be screened in theatres throughout the country, The New York Times reported. Morocco banned the film because of scenes that showed G-d in a corporeal form.

The United Arab Emirates over the weekend also reportedly decided to bar the release of the film, claiming inaccuracies in the account of the biblical story.

“This movie is under our review and we found that there are many mistakes not only about Islam but other religions, too,” Juma Obeid Al Leem, the director of Media Content Tracking at the National Media Council in the UAE, told Gulf News. “So we will not release it in the UAE.”

    True to form -- by most. if not all Arab countries who have no time for, and cannot  accept any other religion, than Islam.
    They staunchly believe it is the only religion, with the text of the Koran encompassing the only true text and religion.  Also all others ( unbelievers ) are 'infidels' and 'western kaffirs'.
    I am happy to be any of these, as being one of them would be obscenely objectionable to me.
