Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep‘s latest film The Post has reportedly been banned in Lebanon due to director Steven Spielberg‘s ties to Israel.

The flick was presented to the Lebanese censorship board, a source told THR, but it was nixed, citing a “boycott Israel” list that includes Steven due to his Oscar-winning Holocaust film Schindler’s List (the 1993 film shot some scenes in Jerusalem).
