Egypt continues to celebrate the \u00a046<sup>th<\/sup> anniversary of 6 October war nowadays.\r\n\r\nThe Israeli papers has been commenting angrily on "The Passage\u201d movie which touches the war on the Egyptian side of the front lines.\r\n\r\n\u201cYediot Aharonot\u201d an Israeli newspaper \u00a0published a report on the Israeli reactions to the Egyptian film \u00a0named "The Passage\u201d.\r\n\r\nThe movie has raised fears within the Israeli community, increasing hatred toward Israel, the paper said.\r\n\r\nSmadar Perri, \u00a0an Israeli reporter, claimed \u00a0that the film depicts Jews as vampires.\r\n\r\nShe added that the Egyptian film simulates the era after the defeat of 1967, the war of attrition, and up to the 1973 war, and depicts the Israeli army as sadistic.\r\n\r\nPerri \u00a0pointed out that the film has become the talk of the hour in the Arab world, and speaks clearly about the need to defeat the Israeli army, knowing that Israel is no longer in the literature of Egyptian cinema described as the Zionist enemy, but the Israeli enemy.\r\n\r\nShe explained that the film crew made several visits to the bases of the Egyptian commando to train on how to shoot some scenes of combat warfare.\r\n\r\nOn the other hand, Zvi Bar'el\u00a0 wrote in Haaretz that this year\u2019s blockbuster \u2018The Passage\u2019 makes evident that despite political shifts, the line of defense of the country\u2019s artists and intellectuals hasn\u2019t changed.\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/www.haaretz.com\/middle-east-news\/egypt\/.premium-in-egypt-nationalism-is-always-on-the-agenda-even-in-film-1.7499718" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https:\/\/www.haaretz.com\/middle-east-news\/egypt\/.premium-in-egypt-nationalism-is-always-on-the-agenda-even-in-film-1.7499718<\/a>\r\n\r\nEgyptian film critics attribute the timing to the new national spirit engendered by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sissi, who in 2017 called on artists and filmmakers to bring nationalist content into their creations. \u201cFor the past seven years everything has been frozen,\u201d Sisi said while meeting journalists and military figures. \u201cBefore that, the government was involved in content and instilling values and principles into the television industry and the media \u2026 we hope once again to take the same road.\u201d\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/see.news\/an-actor-who-made-egyptian-people-shed-tears\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https:\/\/see.news\/an-actor-who-made-egyptian-people-shed-tears\/<\/a>\r\n\r\nBut \u201cThe Passage\u201d is not just a cookie-cutter production depicting Egyptian soldiers as fair, honest and patriotic and prepared to sacrifice themselves for their country. It reminds Egyptians who the real enemy is. Portraying Israeli officers and soldiers as sadists, or trigger-happy at the very least, is not new. Even in movies that dared to criticize the government or present its failures in war, the Egyptian film industry always framed the Israeli army and Israel as a wild, warmongering, land-guzzling country.
