Egypt's censor has halted production of a film for allegedly promoting the normalisation of relations with Israel, Al-Ahram Arabic has reported.

Mohamed Kenawy who wrote the film, Regheef Aish (Loaf of Bread), denied the accusation and said the film promotes peace and cooperation among all people regardless of sex, race and religion.

The story revolves around an Egyptian, a Palestinian and an Israeli, and examines life in the Arab region and the world.

The film had been under production for two months before filming was halted.

The film stars Amr Saad, Jommana Murad, Marwa, Kinda Aloush, Afaf Shoeib, and Salah Abdallah.

The issue of normalising relations with Israel has been a controversial topic since Egypt and Israel signed the Camp David Accords in 1978.

Why?
A 14 years old Palestinian girl living in poor bedouin (repeatedly demolished village), wrote a fairy tale for Europe's "Hans Christan Andersen" contest and she won the 1st prize. An Israeli commented; "she must be an Israeli child who was abducted, Palestinians are not good at anything". Al Ahram didn't show her first prize, nor did any Egyptian paper !!?? Yahoo in Canada did.

This is ridiculous....
Why are we only confined to only hear hatred towards Isreal?. Why not allow us to hear alternative views?.Neither Islam or Christianity condone this culture of hate
