A propaganda film aimed at scaring Israeli Arabs from joining the Israel Defense Force dramatizes a computerized brain washing session that ultimately costs a draftee his sanity, concluded a flashback with the star mumbling, “I didn’t understand, I didn’t understand.”

“Project X features Samer Bisharat (star of Oscar-nominated Omar) as a youth who is brainwashed into serving in the army,” the anti-Israel Electronic Intifada blog wrote. “But instead of gaining the privileges promised by a Palestinian collaborator, the young man realizes only devastating psychological and social costs as a result of his choice to serve.”

Elder of Ziyon, who flagged the video on Tuesday, said, “In the haters’ logic, by trying to eliminate discrimination, Israel is causing discrimination!”

He asked, “Who really wants equal rights for Arabs in Israel? Clearly, not the people who made this film.”

Some 1.2 million Arabs currently live in Israeli cities, making up 20 percent of its population.
