DT # 628 'Tales from the Middle East'


Part 1) A is a movie (adapted from B's novel of the same name) which was banned from Israel and faced delayed release in the U.S because of its anti-semitic overtones. The reason was mainly the make-up and portrayal of the Jewish character C, which was considered strongly stereotypical. Interestingly, it was also banned in D because it portrayed C in a very sympathetic manner.

Part 2) E is a biblical character and one of the sons of Noah. E's sons are supposed to have formed 5 ancient kingdoms. E is also considered an ancestor of F. E lends his name to a group of languages largely spoken in the middle - east.

Give A to F. Also, how is E related to the context of Part 1) ?

Part 3) Connect :
