That's my understanding though I could be mistaken.
Put that to one side. The scenario in the film is so blatant and outlandish in its racist propaganda that I'm frankly appalled it didn't cause a storm of controversy -- even though as we know the establishment doesn't give a fcuk for the Palestinians and, anyway, the bias is in the perfectly acceptable "correct" direction. Imagine for a second a film where the Israelis were depicted as such. Might have sparked a hint of protest.
