Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - May 11, 2011

 
     "The President addressed the members of the [Fatah] Revolutionary [Council] and said that the deaths of Juliano Khamis and Vittorio Arrigoni are a mark of shame upon those who carried out the crimes. He added, ‘These two events are a mark of shame upon those who carried out the crimes, because Juliano Khamis was a Palestinian from among our ’48 [territories – i.e., Israeli] brothers, and he worked with us in theater, in art and in culture.’”
