Banning Moses Story as “Zionist Propaganda”

Many American religious leaders disliked the new film EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS because of its departures from Scripture, but Egyptian authorities banned the movie
because it echoes some authentic and “dangerous” Biblical themes.

Egyptian Culture Minister Gaber Asfour condemned the film for “historical inaccuracies” and giving “a Zionist view of history.” But how could Hollywood possibly portray the Biblical story and treat Pharaoh and his slave-masters as the good guys?

To Islamists the entire Bible might read like Zionist propaganda – emphasizing the age-old, sacred connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel, stretching from Abraham to David, the Prophets, and Jesus. In fact, it’s not just the books of Exodus and Deuteronomy, but countless later prophecies and holy writings that emphasize the pattern of Jewish exile and return. The Arab objection to this Hollywood project actually reflects profound discomfort with much deeper themes in Western culture.
