The producers of the series, whose story was written by Ali and Muhammad Shams, and directed by Muhammad Jamal al-Adl, did not reveal more details of the dramatic line that the series is running on, but Kuwaiti voices and other Arab countries criticized the idea, and electronic space witnessed battles between supporters and opponents, and the journalist Saeed Al-Saadi said censured: “What message does he want to deliver? It is true that there is a difference between Judaism and Zionism, but this difference is not clear to the public, I think it is a prelude to cultural normalization and cultivation of thought in the subconscious, and the Palestinian newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, titled "The Life of the Leopard lost the Arabs and won the Israelis."
On the other hand, the journalist Mai Al-Aidan praised the series on her account on Twitter, saying: “The official promo of the Umm Haroun series, for the lady of the Gulf screen, Hayat Al-Fahad. The directing is very big, the artists are diligent, and the theme of the series is unique and deals for the first time with the Jews of the Gulf. ”
In response to criticism directed by Khaled Al-Fahd, the artist, Hayat Al-Fahd, said in a television interview: "The enemies of success have launched rumors that the series (Umm Haroun) has been stopped, and this is not true, just as Kuwait TV and the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information have nothing to do with them." Al-Fahad continued, “The series talks about the Jews, and these people were present everywhere. This is a book from God Almighty and we cannot deny it.”
"Kuwait has many religions, and the Zionists did what they worked and innovated in the Arabs, everyone cooperated with the Arabs and with the Palestinians, and Palestine remains our main issue, the basic issue of Kuwait."
On the other hand, the Israeli army spokesperson, Avichai Adraei, wrote on his account on Twitter: “The series Umm Harun has not yet been shown, but it has caused a wide media outcry, and this has aroused my interest. I liked the statements of Hayat Al-Fahd, and as usual, the able artist was criticized by the conspiracy theorists and other spoilers who look at the word normalization of victory, and they prefer racist series that promote anti-Semitic lies presented in Ramadan.
