A Year After Jenin Freedom Theatre Director's Murder...
In an era where artist-celebrities assume the role of human rights icons through stints as UN "good will ambassadors", photo-op tours of disaster stricken areas and pronouncements of disgust with the war criminal of the week, Mer-Khamis was an artist in the truest sense of the word. He used his considerable gifts as an actor, filmmaker and theatre director both to represent suffering and injustice in unique ways and to offer a glimpse of a different future. He was, in fact, a cultural terrorist. And the world needs more of them." Al Jazeera 04/05/12
