The film opens by showing the beauty of pre-Zionist rural Palestine. The film was shot in Jordan, where the landscape is very similar. We see Farha in her village, we meet her father and uncle, and it seems like what one would expect in a Palestinian village in pre-Zionist Palestine. And yet, I could not help feeling that something terrible was brewing.

On the old comedy show “In Living Color” comic genius Jim Carrey did a routine that PERFECTLY depicts the Woke Culture that has since taken over large parts of the world.

A children’s cartoon produced by Netflix called Battle Kitty is catching the attention of parents who are shocked at the blatantly sexual and homoerotic nature of the program.

HBO’s “Watchmen” show is based on the comic book of the same name. In that comic book, one of the plots involves a villain staging an alien invasion that is meant to be so catastrophic, terrifying and deadly that it would unite all the various peoples of a deeply fractured world.

It appears that a different HBO project could be utilizing a similar philosophy, though perhaps inadvertently.

Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko has signed a new law that legalizes piracy of movies, music, TV shows and software owned by rightsholders from 'unfriendly countries'.
