IDF soldiers are on Turkish-TV portrayed as cold blooded murderers and rapists. Arab Palestinians requests the Saudi-owned MBC network to stop broadcasting the TV-drama.
The 13-episode Separation: Palestinian in Love and in War (Cry of Stones) is about a Palestinian family that leaves for a vacation to Jordan, only to return to a home that had been demolished by the IDF.
The drama, which was first broadcast on Turkey’s state television last October, depicts IDF soldiers as cold-blooded murderers and rapists. The Turkish drama, which has strained relations between Turkey and Israel, has also enraged many Palestinians, especially female prisoners held in Israeli jails.
The inmates are particularly outraged over scenes showing IDF soldiers «raping» a Palestinian women.
«This film defames the female prisoners and their struggles in occupation prisons», the prisoners said in a statement. «We call on the producer of thisTurkish drama to apologize to the Palestinian people for the scene which shows Israeli soldiers raping a Palestinian female prisoner called Miriam».
«Those who think that a Palestinian female prisoner is raped when she’s arrested are living in an illusion and are mistaken», the female prisoners said. «There has never been such a case. Nor have we heard of a Palestinian family that killed their daughter after her release».
The women also called on the Saudi-owned MBC network to stop broadcasting the Turkish series immediately. Palestinian Authority officials have also expressed outrage over the drama, dubbing it «offensive» and «detached from reality».

That Turkey has started to broadcast Nazi-style propaganda against Jews seems to be to much even for Arab Palestinians.
For the Western World, this is not a matter of freedom of expression. Turkey is not just a banana republic in Latin America, or a isolated island nation in the Pacific Ocean.
Turkey is a member of NATO. This organization was formed to protect the free and democratic World from attacks by Fascists and Communists. Today Turkey is lead by a Prime Minister who uses the same language as the Nazis. That is a shame, and will bring disasters up on the Turkish people.
Turkey should be suspended as a NATO member, and their bid to join the European Union should be made null and void.
