    I’m trying to find the DVD series of Fauda, the whole first season. Can you help. If not, is there a link to streamed episodes?

    New Israeli drama explores both sides of the conflict

    Israeli television has been seriously good for a while now, as anyone who’s followed the trajectory of homegrown Israeli dramas like Hatufim, successfully adapted a year after its 2010 release to the critically-acclaimed American variation, Homeland, can attest.

    Fauda: Hit TV series has united Arab and Israeli audiences

    A WORLD weary cop pulled out of his idyllic winery retirement for one last gig is a scene we’re all familiar with from one too many police dramas. But that’s where the similarities end.

    Fauda — A Crackling Israeli TV Series

    Fauda, premiered last February on Israeli television, focuses on Israel’s deadly confrontation with Hamas, the Palestinian national movement that has fought three wars with Israel and unleashed torrents of suicide bombers on Israeli civilians.
