'Miral' Actor Shot to Death


Juliano Mer-Khamis has died at the age of 52 after he was shot down in the Northern West Bank on Monday, April 4, by a masked gunman.

Actor and political activist Juliano Mer-Khamis was gunned down in the Northern West Bank on Monday, April 4. He was 52. The Arab-Israeli star, who most recently appeared in "Miral", was shot by a masked gunman about 150 feet from the Freedom Theater, the drama school and community theater Mer-Khamis ran in Jenin.

He was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead on arrival. As the son of a Jewish mum and an Arab father, Mer-Khamis was a vocal critic against Israel's policies toward the Palestinians. His theater, which he opened in 2006, drew criticism from some Palestinians who viewed it as a threat to their traditions.

Mer-Khamis starred in several Israeli films as well as the 1984 U.S. film "The Little Drummer Girl".
