Mourn the Death of Rachel
No, not Rachel Corrie.
In an amazing piece on the blog Boker Tov, Boulder! ("good morning, Boulder!"), Rachel Corrie -- who died a fool's death, standing in front of an Israeli bulldozer and challenging the bulldozer driver (who, it turns out, couldn't see her) to run her down -- is compared to eight other Rachels, all of them killed by Palestinian terrorism in the past two years.
These Rachels were victims of the Palestinian ideology of death that Rachel Corrie supported. They died because they went to a pizzeria; or to the supermarket; or because they were at home.
Please read it all. It won't take you more than a few minutes. But the pictures, and the stories, of these Rachels, will remain with you.
