The plot revolves around a fictional politician named Yitzhak Cohen running for the Israeli prime-minister's office. Cohen becomes interested in surgically removing the eyes of a young Palestinian girl named Zahra. The girl's eyes remind Yitzhak Cohen of his wife's eyes and he wished to give them to his son.
At the end of the show, the Israelis, pretending to be UN employees, go into a Palestinian school. Claiming that they are there to check the children for an eye disease, the Jews brutally remove the eyes from Zahra. After the scene, which is shown in the embedded clip, the girl is left blind.
In Zahra's Blue Eyes, Israeli Jews routinely harvest Palestinian children's organs for profit, without showing any sympathy towards their victims. In the show, the Israeli president is kept alive by using organs harvested from Palestinian children.
The Jews are also portrayed as viewing themselves as racially superior to others, as Yitzhak Cohen proclaims that "The Jews are the best race in the world."
The director of Zahra's Blue Eyes, Ali Derakhshni, was quoted as saying that “I began working on this series 17 years ago, when I was still working in the Iranian Ministry of Education.” The interviewer, who at the time was the Iranian Minister of Education, responded that “The idea for the show is simply ingenious. A girl has blue eyes. A Zionist, who serves in the Israeli army as an officer, sees her beautiful eyes and steals them.” Ali Derakhshni then responded that “We are at the beginning of the road. Fortunately, the Iranian Islamic Republic and our Islamic regime have made many films and series like ‘Zahra’s Blue Eyes,’ which is a film about children.”
The show was a hit in Iran and the Middle East. While airing on Iranian state-funded Sahar 1 channel, the show was accompanied with a crossed out Star of David on the corner of the screen throughout the entire broadcast.
