Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The Jordanian reporter uses the name of Yahya Barakat, director of documentary "Rachel Corrie: An American Conscience." Strange coincidence.
Not the same Yahya Barakat:
However, Barakat experienced a tremendous loss when he permanently lost a completed film during the Israeli invasion in Beirut during the 1980s. After leaving his finished film, which chronicled the colonization of Palestine in the years 1922 to 1948, in his studio, he said, the "Israelis entered the studio and take everything." The film disappeared before Barakat even had a chance to showing it to an audience.

The film director is 30 years older.

In the Neurozone, there can be only one.
