Palestinians Get Irate Over Sperm Movie

The palestinians have found something else to be enraged over: a film about sperm.

Palestinians on Wednesday expressed outrage over a film that revolves around a 17-year-old Palestinian girl who was conceived with the smuggled sperm of her father, a security prisoner held by Israel.

The girl, Amira, was raised believing that she was conceived in this unconventional manner. She later discovered that her father’s semen had been replaced with that of an Israeli prison guard.

The film, shot in Jordan, is co-produced by Jordan, Egypt and the Palestinians.

Jordan has nominated the film as its official entry for the 94th Academy Awards (Oscars) to compete in the international feature film category, the Jordan Times reported.

The Palestinian Authority and several Palestinian groups, including those representing security prisoners in Israeli jails, condemned the drama film as an “insult to the dignity” of the inmates.

The PA Culture Ministry and a number of Palestinian groups defending the rights of the security prisoners said on Wednesday that the film is “a clear infringement and insult to the dignity of the prisoners, their heroism and their great history of struggling.”

In a statement, PA Culture Minister Atef Abu Saif said: “The film clearly harms an important issue for our people, strikes our national and struggle narrative and unequivocally offends the history and struggles of the Palestinian prisoners.”

Abu Saif pointed out that the PA and groups representing the prisoners and their families recently held a meeting to discuss the steps that need to be taken “to address the negative repercussions of the film.”

Efforts were underway “to confront all those who contributed to the production of the film and put an end to all those who seek to distort the struggle of the Palestinian prisoners and their families,” the groups said.

“Put an end to all those who seek to distort the struggle of the Palestinian prisoners and their families” sounds very much like a threat to kill

Meanwhile, who the hell came up with this hashtag?!

That might just be the most unintentionally funny hashtag since this one:

Update: For those who did not get my use of the word “irate” in the title:
