Rachel Levy, 17, murdered by a Palestinian genocide bomber
Rachel Levy was a senior at the Sieff High School. Fellow pupils from her photography class at school said that she was an excellent pupil, and that an exhibition of Rachel's photographs is being held at her school. "She was a charming girl, allways smiling and pleasant. simply a wonderful person," said a relative. "She loved books, music, and sports," said her mother.

Rachel Levy was buried in Jerusalem. She is survived by her parents, Amos and Avigail, and her two brothers: Guy, 23, and Kobi, 7.

May God bless her memory.

The female genocide bomber was a member of the Al-Aksa brigades, a terrorist group that is financed and organized by Yasser Arafat and other thugs of the Palestinian Authority.

March 29, 2002 - Rachel Levy, 17, of Jerusalem, was one of two people killed when a female suicide bomber blew herself up in the Kiryat Yovel supermarket in Jerusalem.

On Friday afternoon, Rachel's mother, Avigail, asked her to go to the supermarket to buy some things for the Shabbat meals. A 16-year-old female Palestinian suicide bomber, wearing a belt of explosives around her waist, walked into the supermarket in Jerusalem's Kiryat Hayovel neighborhood Friday afternoon and blew herself up. Haim Smadar, the security guard, prevented the bomber from going deep inside the store. Rachel Levy, who was near the entrance, was killed; 28 people were injured.

Rachel's cousin, Rafi Levy, was killed in a terrorist shooting attack at a roadblock near Ofra a month ago.

Rachel Levy was buried in Jerusalem. She is survived by her parents, Amos and Avigail, and her two brothers: Guy, 23, and Kobi, 7.

I just watched the HBO documentary! It is such a moving story. I feel so much empathy for Abigail Levy and her family. What an outrageous response from the mother of the suicide bomber. I can also empathize with her, in regards to the occupation, but she and her husband, are very narrow minded. In some ways, it reminds me of the 200 year long battle here in the united states regarding slavery, and the struggles of racismn here in the U.S. It seems the Palestineans are treated as less than "human", it is racism in that part of the world to the extreme! As Abigail said, there will always be war, it is how we as citizens react, to encourage peace. Violence is NOT the answer.
