Forget Corrie. Research the other Rachels.

Forget abour Corrie and research the other Rachels that were brutally murdered by the people that Corrie came to support.

Rachel Thaler.

Rachel Levi.

Rachel Levy.

Rachel Charhi.

Rachel Kol.

Rachel Ben Abu.

Rachel Gavish.

Rachel Shabo.

All these Rachels cut down by Palestinian terrorists because they occupied Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Netanya, Petach Tikva, Haifa, and Ashkelon.

None of these Rachels had a cantata composed in their memory. No one wrote or produced a West End play in their name. No boat was launched in any of their names.

They lived, and died, in the hope of peace and reconciliation.

Unlike Corrie, whose full name I cannot bring myself to utter.
