The following are excerpts from episode 6 of the Iranian antisemitic series Zahra's Blue Eyes that was aired on Sahar 1 TV on January 17, 2005. The series is dubbed into Arabic:

Grandfather: Get up, my dear.

Israeli Soldier: Come on, get down.

Israeli [Daniel]: Who are you? My God, who are you? What are you doing here? You're wounded, you need help. Give me your hand, give me your hand.

Girl: There you go, Zahra.

Zahra: Thank you.

Daniel: It's almost over.

Girl: Eat the candy, Zahra.

Zahra: Thank you. I've already had a lot.

Daniel: Eat the candy, dear. You may feel at home, don't be shy.

Grandfather: I Thank you very much. You've been very good to us. We have a long way ahead of us. To be honest, I don't want to cause you any trouble.

Daniel: You are our guests. I don't think you can leave the house in your condition. Here. We don't mind if you stay here as long as you like.

Grandfather: No, no, no. Thank you. You are truly a follower of Moses. May God reward you.

John: Get up, you-- I'm talking to you! Where are you? What is this Palestinian doing here? Don't you know they are our sworn enemies?

Daniel's wife: This man is our guest. He is wounded.

John: They are definitely terrorists. You've made a terrible mistake.

Daniel's wife: No, it's not like you think. Daniel!

Grandfather: Why are you behaving this way? They found us by chance. I swear to God they are innocent. I will leave now.

John: Shut up!

Daniel's wife: Daniel, Daniel! John is fighting with Abd Al-Rahman. Quick! He's in the house.

Daniel: He was discovered? How? OK.

Daniel's wife: Nothing has happened. Nothing. Come, don't be afraid.

Daniel: What's all this commotion? What's going on here? Don't you know our guest is in bad condition?

John: Don't you know that harboring an enemy is a crime?

Daniel: An enemy? By what logic is helping a bleeding old man considered a crime? Is who is not a Jew our enemy?

John: You Ethiopian Jews are not pure Jews! A pure Jew only helps Jews.

Daniel: A pure Jew... A pure Jew. With these promises and slogans they brought us here from our homeland. And here, every day we hear only promises, and slogans and lies. You are treating us like slaves.

John: May God curse the Ethiopian Jews.

Daniel: May God curse, you oppressors, who treat people like slaves.

John: I'll show you!

Grandfather: I swear to God I didn't mean to cause you any trouble. As God is my witness. This place is no longer safe for you. I want to help you.

John: Where is your commander? I've found an old Palestinian and a girl around here.

Israeli Soldier: Tell the commander immediately that the old man and his granddaughter are hiding with one of the Ethiopian Jews. Quickly! Faster!

John: Tell me, where have you hidden him?

Daniel's wife: Daniel!

Grandfather: No, don't be afraid. My granddaughter and I need you help. Help us. The soldiers...The soldiers are chasing us. I want to get away from here. I will give you as much money as you want. Anything you want, I will give you. Here. here. This is for you.

Zahra: What's wrong, Grandpa?

Grandfather: Nothing, my dear.

Don't be afraid, don't be afraid.

Israeli soldier: Move.

Colonel: Move!

Zahra: Grandpa! Grandpa!

Grandfather: What do you want from me? Let me go. Let go of me, you oppressor! You have no conscience! At least let me say goodbye to her.

Yizhak Cohen: Let him go!

Grandfather: Let me say goodbye to her. Don't cry, my dear. You must be brave. Don't be scared, my dear.

Zahra: I don't want to leave you, Grandpa.

Grandfather: I don't want to leave you either.

Zahra: Where do they want to take you?

Grandfather: I don't know. Don't worry. We will meet again, my dear.

Zahra: Where?

Grandfather: In heaven. There they can't keep me away from you.

Zahra: Do you promise?

Grandfather: I promise, my dear. Don't cry, my dear.

Israeli soldier: Get up! Get up, come on.

Israeli soldier: Go to hell.

Come, you! Come. Sit here.

Grandfather: What are you waiting for? They have obviously raised you for this kind of work.

Colonel: We have plenty of time. Don't think you will get away from me easily. I have a lot of work to do with you.

Zahra: I want my grandpa. If you don't bring him to me now, I will never sleep.

I want my grandpa. You hurt my grandpa. I want my grandpa. You hit him and I hate you. You lied to me.

Yizhak Cohen: Calm down.

Zahra: I want my grandpa.

Yizhak Cohen: Calm down, my dear. Calm down.

Zahra: Grandpa.

Yizhak Cohen: Calm down. Shut up, shut up. Shut up or I'll finish you off. Calm down. Calm down.

Colonel: Why did you escape?

Grandfather: Why shouldn't I escape?

Colonel: True. You were going to spread a contagious disease among the poor people, among our people.

Colonel: The contagious disease has already spread. You are an incurable plague throughout this land.

I won't allow you to touch her. You are killers! You are savages! I ask you, for God's sake, to let the girl go. Take your hands off her!

Yizhak Cohen: For me, finishing you off is a simple thing. Don't push your luck with me.

Grandfather: Curses on you, you bastards, you lowlifes!

Yizhak Cohen: You stupid, silly old man. All of you, without exception, should be annihilated. You are primitive people who cannot be reformed.
