A play produced in March 2016 and directed by
Mirna Sakhleh. This play explores the Israeli
propaganda machine or what is known as
“Hasbara” which means “explanation” in
Hebrew. Hasbara stands for the Zionist public
diplomacy and the strategic efforts to influence
the public opinion.
“Hazbara” researches the methods of the Israeli
Hasbara in the recent years, especially the
manual handbook titled; “The Israel Project
2009 … Global Language Dictionary” which is
considered to be an official curriculum to guide
the governmental spokespersons. It focuses on
the important role of the social media outlets like
Facebook in the Hasbara campaigns. Moreover,
it highlights the Israeli attempts and involvement
in the Cultural theft and appropriation towards
the Arab and Palestinian Heritage. The play
combines documentary theater based on actual
events and satirical black comedy.
