Prominent 1948 Palestinian filmmaker Mohammed Bakri's anti-Zionist statements, made in Beirut over the weekend, caused the Israeli culture minister to call for an investigation, something the museum director who invited Bakri to Beirut said was unsurprising Thursday. Bakri was in Lebanon to participate in "Palestine Days," a cultural festival run by Beirut's Dar El-Nimer Museum.Salah noted that Regev's reaction to Bakri's comments did not seem unusual.Given the restrictions placed by Israel on 1948 Palestinians, it is significant that the museum hosted Bakri in Beirut, she said.Bakri enraged the Israeli establishment and Jewish public with his documentary film "Jenin, Jenin," about the April 2002 clashes in which 52 Palestinians and 23 Israeli soldiers were killed.
