Entertainment Execs Slam BDS Netflix Boycott Over Israeli Show Fauda4 min read

 Dozens of top executives in the entertainment industry condemned a threat by the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanctions) movement to boycott Netflix if it aired the Israeli-produced “Fauda” TV show.

BDS representatives sent a threatening letter to Netflix, the American internet streaming company which picked up the Israeli show and screened its first season.

“This is a series that is racist against Arabs and that encourages violating international law and human rights — which could lead us to take legal actions against Netflix,” BDS threatened.

“Fauda,” meaning chaos in Arabic, is an Israeli drama about an elite Israeli undercover unit operating against Palestinian terrorists. It was bought by Netflix in 2016.
