The border violators - the murder of Juliano Mer Khamis

In the Arab awakening, which is fermented so many years, dogmas are destroyed, broken chains, transgress limits. make it possible to art, inconceivable and unheard of, has a little as well understood as Juliano Mer Khamis, an Israeli actor, director, head of the Freedom Theatre in Jenin in the West Bank. If theater has a subversive in these times of explosive force, then in this Palestinian refugee camp where injured alone the fact limits that girls and boys, women and men, an Israeli director, together with Palestinian student actors were rehearsing. Where every performance, whether Orwell's "Animal Farm" and "Fragments of Palestine" a challenge to ideological hard-liners - whether by Israeli or Palestinian side. Juliano Mer Khamis was on Monday shot dead outside his theater of assassins. One had threatened him, the son of a Jewish mother and a Palestinian father, a long time. But the perpetrators will probably have to know why they slammed now: In these times, as in Arab countries, the generation loses the boys' fear, the voice of Mer Khamis in the West Bank would bring even more, as it has already effected already. He was 53 years old.
It was his mother, Arna, which provided in the 80's a theater project with refugee children in Jenin on the legs. Years later, some of them blew up as suicide bombers in the air and tore others to their deaths. Some were shot during the second intifada, the Israeli army. Such Resumes portrayed Mer Khamis 2004 in his documentary "Arna's Children". Since he already had a life of radical identity breaks behind him as an elite soldier in the Israeli army, a prison inmate and a half years sentenced because he had knocked down an officer, as a celebrated actor in Israel, which refuses one evening to perform in front of an audience full of soldiers . In 2006 he went to Jenin, and build the "Freedom Theatre" on. Finally, even with his supporters is the former leader of the Al-Aqsa Brigades in the camp. For the custodians of the Palestinian martyr cult, it could hardly be a more dangerous man than this theater director.

The "Freedom Theatre" has long-standing partner in Germany - including medico international and the Berlin stage. In Memory of Juliano Mer Khamis, the stage is scheduled for 8 and 10 April in Berlin shows including his documentary "Arna's Children".

It is so sad. Juliano was a talented actor and a peace builder. 

No one deserve to be killed , certainly not Juliano by Palestinians - he was doing so much FOR Palestinians....

I'd like to recommend you to watch "Arana's Children".

May he rest in peace.

Yes it is very sad, and again it has taken a peace fighter !   

May he rest in peace.

Juliano Mer Khamis speaks about the formation of the Freedom Theater الى روح جوليانو خميس

Dear friends,

This video posted by our member Brian Belcinski and I hope every one send it for his friends in honour of Juliano Khamis.


"I filmed this while I was working at the Freedom Theater in Jenin. It is an interview with Juliano about the creation of the theater. As it starts he is talking about his mother, Arna, who founded the original, and goes on to his experiences with creating the present day Freedom Theater. The story has always served as an inspiration to me, and i think this interview does it justice.

Juliano Mer Khamis, one of the most inspirational artists, fearless activists, wise actors, and bravest men I have ever had the honor of knowing, speaks about the creation of the Freedom Theater.
Rest In Peace, my Friend". Brian Belcinski.

Those of us not living in Palestine right now have an advantage to help those inside to give them a voice and a face. We have an obligation to support our people in Palestine. Vote yes for a Palestinian state. We deserve a state because it's our human right.

اصدقائى الاعزاء:

هذا الفيديو مقدم من صديق صفحتنا بريان بيكلنسكى وارجو منكم ان ترسلوه الى جميع اصدقائكم وفاءً لروح الفقيد جوليانو خميس.

"قمت بتصوير هذه المقابلة عندما كنت أعمل في مسرح الحرية في جنين، وهي مقابلة مع جوليانو حول إنشاء المسرح. كما بدأ يتحدث عن والدته، آرنا، التي أسست المسرح الأصلي، وكيف قام هو باكمال المسيرة بعد ذلك مستفيدا من تجربتها وكيف اضاف خبراته لكى يستمر مشروع مسرح الحرية. كانت القصة دائما بمثابة مصدر إلهام لي، وأعتقد أن هذه المقابلة تنصف جوليانو.

جوليانو مير خميس، واحدة من أكثر الفنانين الهاماً، ومن الناشطين الشجعان، والجهات الفاعلة ويملك الكثير من الحكمة، وهو من اشجع الرجال .
ارقد في سلام يا صديقي ". بريان بيلكنسكى

الى كل اولائك الذين لا يسكنون فلسطين نقول بانه لا زال بامكانكم مساعدتنا ومساعده هؤلاء الاطفال بمنحهم صوتنا من خلال دعم الشعب الفلسطينى فى اقامة دولته الفلسطينية المستقلة والتى سيتم التصويت عليها فى الامم المتحده فى شهر سبتمبر القادم وذلك من خلال هذا الرابط: http://www.gopetition.com/petition/41477.html
