TEHRAN -- The Oscar-nominated Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi has strongly criticized international human rights organizations’ silence over the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.
“Down with and shame on these human rights organizations that are blind and mute about such overt oppression of a nation,” Majidi said in a statement published by some Persian news agencies on Saturday.
“From their blind-eyed perspective, all the defenseless women and children who are being killed certainly must not be human,” he added.
Elsewhere in the statement, Majidi said, “Let’s tell the people of Gaza that our bosoms are their shelters. [Let’s] tell them that the pictures of their children, who choked on their own blood, will be recorded in our historical memory and our hearts will remain full of hatred toward the Zionist occupiers and butchers forever.”
Over 100 people, including women and children, have been killed in the Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, which has intensified over the past five days.
Majidi has always been sensitive about what happening in the Islamic world. 
In collaboration with a number of the world’s professionals, Majidi has recently completed the shooting of “Muhammad (S)”, a blockbuster about the Prophet of Islam in his childhood.
The film is scheduled to premiere during autumn this year.
