The mourners were quiet and stoic. And here's one from an angle I couldn't take.
Compare the body language with these from the funeral of the Arab teen Mohammed Abu Khudair*:
Here's how Jews mourn:

Apparently, the Arab rioters so badly damaged the lightrail tracks and equipment in the Shuafat and Beit Hanina neighborhoods of Jerusalem that the trains will no longer be able to travel through there. That leaves Pisgat Zeev without train service. More buses will have to be added to service those neighborhoods which are as populated as many Israeli cities. I, too, along with many residents of the Benjamin, Samaria and Jordan Valley take the train to and from Pisgat Zeev as part of our traveling to and from Jerusalem. There will now be more traffic on the roads and more crowded buses. I suggest that the city and the CityPass directors decide to change the route, leaving out the Arab neighborhoods. They should build a direct route straight from Pisgat Zeev to French Hill. It will make the train safer all around and a quicker ride for us.
