Radio Propaganda


Unveiling a previously untold narrative, our film uncovers the captivating story behind "The Voice of Israel in Arabic." This radio station, active during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, went beyond broadcasting music and news in Arabic. It became a covert instrument for propaganda, psychological warfare, and the activation of agents using cleverly embedded codes. This clandestine operation posed a formidable threat to Arab rulers, earning the station the name "The Israeli Broadcasting Corporation's Propaganda Orchestra." This riveting tale reveals the intricate web of manipulation and its lasting consequences.
