Actor Juliano Mer-Khamis shot dead in Jenin
Ynet news ^ | 4 April 2011 | Elior Levy

Posted on 04/04/2011 5:19:36 PM PDT by BlackVeil

The Israeli-Arab actor Juliano Mer-Khamis was shot to death in Jenin, Palestinian police in the West Bank announced.

The actor was shot by a number of masked men who fired at him while he was sitting in his car near the theater he established, afterwards fleeing the scene, witnesses say. Mer-Khamis has resided in Jenin and Haifa alternately.

...Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad vowed a few hours later to find whoever had killed Mer-Khamis. "We must not ignore this heinous crime," he said, calling the murder "a gross violation of humane values and against the morals of our people".

...Mer-Khamis, a pro-Palestinian political activist born to a Jewish mother and Arab father, has previously received death threats after establishing the Freedom Theater at Jenin's refugee camp.

Jenin Governor Kadura Musa denounced the murder, saying he "strongly condemns the murder of Mer-Khamis, who showed solidarity with the Palestinian people."

Musa stated that Palestinian security forces have yet to obtain any information on the identity of the killers, but noted that a special committee will be set up to examine the circumstances of the incident.

...

In an interview with Ynet that year, Mer-Khamis said he feared for his life. "But what choice do I have? To run? I am not a fleeing man," he said.

...

However, the actor added, he was taking precautions. Of those behind the fliers he said, "It makes them crazy that a man who is half-Jewish is at the head of one of the most important projects in the Palestinian West Bank and it is just hypocritical racism."

"I have never been as Jewish as I am right now in Jenin. After all this work at the camp it would be extremely unfortunate to die of a Palestinian bullet," he added in a moment of clairvoyance.

Who's he kidding. It IS the values of his people.

Probably shot by his own fellow Pallies to drum up the race-war that’s been languishing lately.

The implication, in the news reports which I have seen, is that he was killed by Palestinian gunmen in Jenin. He had been subject to death threats by militants in a local refugee camp.

Could be a Hamas - Fatah thing. A lot of that going on.

His death is unfortunate but predictable. The documentary “Arna’s children” (which he directed) had its obvious nods toward anti-Israeli sentiment, but it also showed how difficult it is to pull the youth of the West Bank to have any sort of positive outlook on life.

Thanks BlackVeil. I’m sure the Koranimals will do a bang-up job of tracking down the murderers. Y’know, since they probably are them.

Hey Allegra,

Do you think the dead actor burned a Koran? Why else would Moslems want to kill him?

A very striking-looking fellow. He must have had many women “friends”, and lived a full life.

I don’t know what his religion was. His father was Arab Christian, his mother a Jewish Israeli.

“Probably shot by his own fellow Pallies to drum up the race-war that’s been languishing lately.”

Closer than you think. He was actually making things better, building infrastructure, building a future.

The entrenched Pali powers (and the foreign powers who want an ignorant, fanatical fighting force) don’t want things to get better — they want chaos, as being the big chief on top of the chaos gives them money and power.

Another self-hating Jew learns the truth the hard way.
