Palestinian-American Netflix Producer Describes Israel as a Racist Colonial State

Jerusalem24 – Palestinian-American Hala Gabriel, a production finance executive at the American TV and film production company (Netflix) described Israel as a racist colonial state that practices apartheid.

“The dangers are in supporting violent, racist, colonial apartheid practiced by the Zionist state of Israel, under the auspices and claim that Russians and Europeans may have had some presence in Palestine thousands of years ago. It’s outrageous at best and criminal at worst,” she said in a tweet.

In another tweet, Gabriel said that “Israel was founded on committing genocides and covering them up and twisting the facts. They continue the violation of Palestinian human rights in many forms until today. Amnesty defines Israel as practicing apartheid.”

In addition to her position at Netflix, Gabriel is a production supervisor and accountant for several major studios in Los Angeles, and California.

She is also the director and producer of an independent documentary called, “One Night at Tantura”, a film about the massacre that took place in the Palestinian village of Tantura in the Nakba (catastrophe) of 1948.
