Egypt, Morocco and the UAE Ban new Movie Exodus Gods and Kings

gods and kings the movie
The new biblical epic 
Exodus is facing bans in Egypt, Morocco and UAE, due to alleged historical and religious inaccuracies.
Ridley Scott’s $140 million film dramatises the story of the Israelites’ escape from Egypt through the Red Sea, featuring Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh and Christian Bale as Moses.

Quoted in the Middle East Eye, the Egyptian Cultural Minister Gaber Asfour called it  “…a Zionist film.”
“It gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies and that’s why we have decided to ban it,” he says.
The decision was made by a government committee and two history professors.
