Many sources, for example Unesco, state that Emily Jacir was born in Bethlehem, not Baghdad as it is mentionned today in Wikipedia. Is there any source to confirm this? If not, I would tend to trust the Unesco bio... Masspesos (talk) 21:45, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Having seen the Guggenheim show, the line about Zwaiter was seriously misleading. Whether he has allied with Black September or not, he was never thought to be a member of that group, but perhaps complicit. Jacir's work makes it clear that she believes he was killed unjustly. So without recapping the whole thing here, it is not fair to leave the impression her work memorializes a "terrorist", but rather someone accused by the Israelis of having been one, or allied with them. A thorough search of the sources fails to bring any documentary evidence to light that he was actually involved, and of course the PLO deny it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:08, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Having also seen the Guggenheim show today, I can't conclude that anything here is "misleading" as E. Jacir has her own agenda and is not an impartial reporter. That Zwaiter was never "conclusively linked" to Black September does not prove that he was innocent. What would be a conclusive link? People involved in such activities do not usually leave BIG OBVIOUS signs indicating their links to terrorist organizations - and at that time the PLO had not renounced terrorism. What was noted in the show was that Zwaiter did receive checks from the PLO which he returned stating that he would not take money for his work, but he was not denying working for his cousin, Yaasir Arafat, and was the PLO representative in Rome. The Jacir exhibit portrays him as having no involvement with anything that could lead to his assasination. I'd ask, what were any of the Israeli's killed in Munich "conclusively linked" to to justify their murders (not assasinations).Henrysteinberger (talk) 23:02, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
