For Juliano Mer-Khamis

Juliano Mer-Khamis, the Nazareth-born actor ... Juliano was lucky. He was born Palestinian and Jewish, Jewish and Palestinian. The creative director/ actor was assassinated in Jenin in the West Bank.

I met him in the summer of 2008 at the Jerusalem Fund in Washington DC during his tour to raise funds and awareness about his theater project in the West Bank city. Those who killed should be ashamed of themselves and should burn in hell to rob us of this artists who was as creative as passionate he was.

His work will live and tell stories of his life and his vision. While we really have no clue who pulled the gun on this man, we hope they are brought to justice and I sure hope his death does not get exploited.

القدس حترجع لنا
