The leader of the Ansar Allah group (Houthis) Abdulmalik Al-Houthi accused Thursday evening Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates of promoting the relationship with Israel through TV series "providing a false look that offends the Palestinian people."
Al-Houthi said, in his daily televised lecture, "Whoever coordinates directly with Israel, or with those who coordinate with it, is on their side and a partner for them in their global injustice."
Al-Houthi considered that those Gulf TV series that are being broadcast this Ramadan, "are a form of support for America, Israel and those who support them,".
He pointed out that "those who seek to bring the nation to be silence in the face of America are partners in its crimes that have filled the Islamic scene and the world."
The Gulf TV series "Umm Haroun" had faced severe criticism even before its broadcast in the month of Ramadan, considering that its main idea revolves around the coexistence of religions between Jews, Muslims and Christians.
The Hebrew newspaper "Yediot Aharonot" said that the criticisms directed against the "Umm Haroun" series reveal the state of conflict and controversy taking place in the Arab world about Israel and its future, and reflect a state of deep turbulence and difference in the Middle East region.
The series deals with the story of a Jewish woman who lived in the Gulf region during the 1940s, directed by Mohammed Jamal al-Adl, written by Ali and Mohammed Shams, and co-starring Mohammed Al-Aidarousi, Ahmed Al-Jasmi, Fakhriya Khamis, Abdel Mohsen Al-Nimr, Fatima Al-Safi, Fouad Ali, Mohammed Al-Alawi, Rawan Mahdi, Alaa Al-Hindi, Nawaf Najm Farah Al-Sarraf, Ilham Ali, Alaa Shaker, Majed Al Jasmi, and Amal Mohammed.
