Liyanah Badr, the wife of Yasir `Abd-Rabbuh and a writer in her own right (although I am not a fan), was on Al-Arabiya TV. She has been fortunate to receiving funding for her recent movies from he Ministry of Culture in the PA (the Minister was her husband). She said that she makes an effort to have all her movies appear in English and French because she wants to show "a humanitarian resistance" to Israeli occupation. She said that the Palestinian should speak "a humanitarian language." How nice. How civilized.
