Dutch-Moroccan Actor Receives Threats For Playing Jesus
by Tarik El Barakah
A Dutch-Moroccan has sparked controversy among the Moroccan community in the Netherlands by signing on to play Jesus, news website Yabiladi reported, citing Dutch media.
35-year-old Abbie Chalgoum, an economics teacher and an art enthusiast, accepted to play Jesus, the prophet of Christianity, in a play called 'Passion' in the city of Venlo.
While he has won praise from Dutch spectators who have declared themselves fans, Chalgoum, however, has earned nothing but threats and insults from his fellow Moroccans.
