The many Rachels

Why has that foolish, terrorist-loving Rachel Corrie become such a cult figure? Her death was no more than a suicide wish as she got in the way of an Israeli bulldozer to protect some law-breaking Arabs.

For those in the world who truly care about innocent Rachels who were really murdered, I can suggest a few.

1988 Rachel Weiss, her three children and a soldier who comes to their aid are murdered when a petrol bomb is hurled at an Israeli bus traveling through Jericho.

In 1991 three buses from Shiloh were on their way to a demonstration in Tel Aviv to encourage then Prime Minister, Yitzchak Shamir, to be strong while attending the Madrid Conference. Arab terrorists shot at the buses and murdered the driver, Yitzchak Rofeh, and my friend and neighbor, Rachella Druk, mother of seven. A number of children were wounded, including Harel Bin Nun, who a few years after recovering from those serious injuries was murdered by Arab terrorists when on a security patrol in Yitzhar.

The Arabs had attempted to murder everyone on the bus, planning that it would tumble down the mountain, but a miracle happened. The driver, with his dying breath managed to stop the bus. Harel was shot next to the driver. The little boy, not yet Bar Mitzvah (13), had jumped up during the shooting to try to turn the bus onto the road. A front wheel was already over the mountain.

Rachel Gavish, her husband, son and father were all murdered by Arab terrorists in their home. Passover, March, 2002, Arab terrorists invaded the Gavish home in Elon Moreh attempting to murder the entire family.

There is much more drama in the lives and deaths of these precious, righteous Rachels than the Jew-hating Rachel Corrie.

Rachel Corrie yimach shmo, was a Anarchist, and a Jew hater. We have to understand the Goyim are not our friends, and they will laud most Jew haters as heroes. So long as the hater gives a excuse for their hatred.

We've been in exile for thirteen hundred years its time we learned this simple fact.

Rachel Corrie was in the way,as you say, from what I know. Any sane person does NOT stand in front of a bulldozer. More could be said on the subject but I will stop here.
No one group entirely hates another group. Esp, the two diverse groups of people you are naming.

One more thing. It's good for you to write about the other Rachels. More people should take the time to write the "the rest of the story," unfortunately these are not stories. May no man HATE any one person, without cause.IF there is a cause may it be justifyable, otherwise like Rachel Corrie, GET OUT OF THE WAY.
