As a Palestinian dwelling within the occupied territories, I perceive that numerous Israelis, and lots of viewers worldwide, genuinely imagine that the Netflix collection ‘Fauda’ presents an knowledgeable, even “impartial,” perspective concerning the battle in Israel and Palestine. Certainly, the collection’ strapline is: “The human tales on either side of the Israel-Palestine battle.”

That religion in ‘Fauda’ is badly misplaced. The misperception that the collection presents any form of correct portrayal of Palestinian life and id has, sadly, wide-ranging and unlucky repercussions.
