The Arab Answer to 'Schindler's List'
In 1983 the Syrian Minister of Defense, Field Marshal Mustafa Tlass, one of the pillars of the Syrian Ba'athist regime, wrote the book The Matzah of Zion in which he described the notorious Damascus Blood Libel of 1840. In that year, the leaders of the Jewish community in Damascus were accused of murdering a Christian priest, Toma [Al-Kabushi], and his servant, in order to use their blood in the baking of Passover Matzahs.
Minister Tlass presented this accusation as a historical fact and even declared, in an interview with the German news magazine Der Spiegel, that his book is "an historical study... based on documents from France, Vienna and the American
University in Beirut."

My take on it?
It's bound to be better than a "Gilligan's Island" motion picture.
Seriously? The producer being called up has done one other movie in his life. And that was twenty years ago. It apparently flopped. I imagine that this is a "vaporfilm" or that perhaps it'll have the quality of a garage production.
In other words? It's only news to the people who have a vested interest in pretending its news, such as, oh, MEMRI. If this were work being done by white neonazis, you'd probably have never heard of it - Unless of course you happen to frequent some source that frequently dredges those particular dregs.
"Matzah of Zion" - the Movie "Matzah of Zion" - the Movie
Eighteen years after the publication of the book,
the Egyptian weekly Roz Al-Yussuf  reports that Egyptian producer, Munir Radhi is making a film adaptation of the book.
He contacted the Syrian Minister of Defense to ask his permission. According to Roz Al-Yussuf Minister Tlass asked Radhi: "Aren't you afraid of what might happen to you... because the book openly accuses the Zionist movement of being behind the assassinations of people who exposed the Zionist conspiracy right from the start."
Radhi responded that he was not afraid, and the project got on its way.
