The first episode of #Messiah has the main character, a CIA agent, touting Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations thesis as the best explanation for global conflict. Is it too much to hope that by the end of series, she has read Edward Said and decided to leave the CIA?

What a shocker that Netflix’s Messiah, having white people producers, created out of blood-soaked settler colonialist media has been, thus far:
– orientalist and racist
– feeding into Islamophobic tropes
– pro-CIA fascistic bullshit
– spotlighting IDF propaganda#MessiahNetflix

Interestingly the producer of Messiah on Netflix is Mark Burnett who was the producer of The Apprentice the show that gave Trump the illusion of being a successful businessman when he was a total loser with many brackruptcies.
PS: Messiah is a good series.

‘Messiah’ tells the story of a man who emerges in Syria and grabs eyeballs across the globe.
He claims to be the messiah–the son of God–and has plenty of miracles up his sleeve to back his claims.
Played by ‘London is falling’ actor Mehdi Dehbi, the messiah is investigated by a CIA agent played by Michelle Monaghan, named Eve Geller.
Geller must find out whether there is any truth to the man’s claims, who is gaining a legion of followers around the globe, or whether he’s just a con artist who has an ulterior agenda.
While some are afraid and think the show is indicative of the times to come, others claim that ‘Messiah’ is outright disrespectful towards their religious beliefs.
Islam, Christianity and other religions across the world have predicted the arrival of the Antichrist, something the show seems to have caught on and base its plot around.
It has generated a lot of curiosity around the globe ever since its trailer surfaced on social media.
The show has created by Michael Petroni (The Book Thief) and directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta).
