  • Palestinian Civic Activist Gunned Down for Cooperating with Israel – Daniel K. Eisenbud
    Baha Nabata, 31, a well-regarded Palestinian civic leader from Shuafat in eastern Jerusalem, was shot dead on Monday for working with Israeli officials to improve living conditions in his community, former Meretz councilman Dr. Meir Margalit, who had worked closely with Nabata, said Wednesday. During their last conversation several weeks ago, Nabata said he feared for his life. “More than once he told me that people in the refugee camp accused him of being a collaborator with Israel,” said Margalit. “That was because in order to solve the problems in the camp, he had to be in contact with the Jerusalem Municipality.”
    Nabata worked to pave the community’s roads, set up emergency medical services, and train firefighters with help from the Jerusalem Fire Department. Margalit said his murder sends a clear warning to all Palestinians working with Israelis to “stop doing it, or you will end up like Nabata.”  (Jerusalem Post)
