Egyptian Lawyer Sues Netflix For Depicting Cleopatra As Black Woman by Edeyoung: 11:36pm On Apr 22, 2023
An Egyptian lawyer has taken legal action against the popular streaming platform, Netflix. The lawyer filed a case with the Public Prosecutor calling for the closure of the platform after the release of the trailer for the upcoming movie, "Queen Cleopatra."
The film depicts the Greek historical figure as a black-skinned woman, a portrayal that has caused controversy and sparked outrage in Egypt.
The lawyer argues that the depiction is historically inaccurate and offensive to the Egyptian people.

According to Egypt Independent, Mahmoud al-Semary demanded that all legal measures be taken against those responsible for the documentary and the management of the streaming platform for its participation in β€œthis crime.”

The complaint submitted against the streaming platform alleged that "most of what Netflix platform displays contradicts Islamic and societal values and principles, especially Egyptian ones.", Greek city times reported.

The case said that the documentary promotes Afrocentrism that is widely spread on social media, which have slogans and writings aimed at distorting and obliterating the Egyptian identity.

The complaint continued addressing Public Prosecution: "In order to preserve the Egyptian national and cultural identity among Egyptians all over the world… we ask and seek you to take the necessary legal measures against this platform."

It demanded stopping broadcasts showing all works aimed at obliterating and distorting the Egyptian identity, through films aimed at falsifying and distorting history in Egypt.

Egyptians are not arabs. The phrase Arabs were never black is non factual, there were black Arabs in the Arabian peninsula, they committed genocide against them and called them Jews!

Let me say that ALL Egyptian queens were black, the only one being disputed is Cleopatra because she reigned during the last days of the Ptolemies (white invaders) who conquered ancient Egypt in 332 BC, which is relatively recent in ancient Africa/Egyptian history.

At the time we're talking about, Europe had no history of being ruled by a woman, in fact, women were not regarded as human beings in Europe. Women never had any leadership role in Europe but were regarded as animals, and indeed being hunted and killed as "witch" up till the 1500's. For me, that's a good clue that Cleopatra wasn't white, else I would like to know other European queens in BC period.

Interestingly, they've been many verifiable black queens before Cleopatra, but then Hollywood go ahead and cast known black historical figures as white without batting an eyelid. So, why should any so called Egyptian worry about Cleopatra being cast as black?

Secondly, just like the Ptolemies, the people living in Egypt today have no ancestry whatsoever with the ancient Egyptians. The ancient Egyptians were as black as the neighboring Sudan and every other African today. The Egyptians today in Egypt are Arab invaders just like white people in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa who have no ancestry to the lands they call home today.

Lower Egypt was Berber

Upper Egypt had Nubian Blacks and Berbers

Nubia (Sudan) was Black

And Cleopatra was Greek

Her Ancestor had been one of Alexander the Greats Generals

Alexander the Greats Empire was divided among 4 of His Generals

Berbers are almost the Same Colour as Arabs

The Tuaregs are Berbers

No she wasn't. She was Greek.

Nerfetiti would be better played by a black woman than Cleopatra.

WRONG, BERBERS WERE NOT THE OWNERS OF EGYPT.


EGYPT WAS NUBIAN LAND AND STILL REMAINS NUBIAN LAND TILL DATE,



GO AND LEARN ABOUT ASWAN AND THE NUBIAN INDIGENE IN EGYPT.



THAT IS NUBIAN LAND AND CAPITAL OF ANCIENT EGYPT.


MAJORITY OF ALL THE PYRAMID ARE ON NUBIAN LAND, EXCEPT THE GIANT PYRAMID OF GIZA.. .


ANY OTHER GROUP IN EGYPT ARRIVED AS IMMIGRANTS AND THAT INCLUDES YOUR GREEK, ARAB, SYRIAN, LEBANESE AND BERBER.



BERBER ARE MOSTLY NORTH WEST AFRICA AND LESS EAST AFRICAN.


TODAY UPPER EGYPT IS COMPLETELY NUBIAN, WHILST THE ARABS ARE OCCUPYING LOWER EGYPT WITH A VARIETY OF ETHIC GROUPS UNDER THE BLANKET OF ARAB SPEAKERS AND ARAB NATION

Who is An Arab?

An Arab is just a person that speak Arabic

What is Arabic?

Arabic is just a language of the Saudis that was forced on others through the conquest of invading Islam

By History Egypt have had a civilization before Saudi existed so they are not Arabs (an identity they want to force on them because of the language)

Saudi and Islam are the ones forcing this because they actually have no linkage to the Jews they need validation from

The only way is through Ismael who was a foster born throwway child of Abraham that fathered some Egyptians centuries before Saudi invaded

To be honest with you i sometimes mix the 2 up because on the map you expect upper Egypt to be in the North

That is not right

The Nubians were from Sudan mainly

But some Nubian Tribes were in Upper Egypt

Most black African Tribes descended from Nubians

Including Yorubas Hausas and Igbo too

It was the Nubians that produced the African Negros

Bilal Al Sudan means Land of the Blacks in Arabic

Even West Africa was called Western Sudan
