Egypt Bans Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus’ Over ‘Historical Inaccuracies’

Egypt has banned Christian Bale’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” a week before its planned New Year’s Eve release, according to 20th Century Fox.

A report from the Egyptian site Mobtada said censors issued the ban due to movie’s “historical inaccuracies.”
Those included the film’s depiction of Jews as having built the Pyramids and the Biblical story of a miracle by Moses causing the Red Sea to part so that the Jewish people could escape from the pursuing Egyptian army.

Egyptian cultural minister Gaber Asfour said the depiction of Jewish slaves as being the builders of the Great Sphinx and Pyramids is inaccurate because the monuments are accepted to have been built around 2540 B.C. — 500 years before Abraham, the father of Judaism.

“This totally contradicts proven historical facts,” Asfour said.

“It is a Zionist film,” he said. “It gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies, and that’s why we have decided to ban it.”

Ridley Scott’s movie, based on the Bible’s Book of Exodus, stars Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.

“Exodus” has grossed nearly $46 million in its first two weeks in the U.S. and another $62 million from 39 international markets.

Earlier this year, Egypt banned another Biblical epic, “Noah,” asserting it violated Islam by portraying a prophet.

The Iranians made several films with takes on Jewish history which were not mainstream - and were internationally denounced. This was regarded as a very proper response.

It doesn't matter. Most people believe the Jews did built the pyramids.

Eli Wallach would have made a great slave.  Sweaty, screaming, crying, ...award worthy.

My uncle, Remus Goldberg, was the head architect at Luxor.

If they ban every "historical" movie for inaccuracy it's gonna be a long list.

Eli Wallach was a great Jewish actor.  They can play anybody:  Mexicans, Native Americans, Catholic priests etc.
