43-year-old father of two murdered by a Palestinian terrorist

Faces of the Victims has published the story of Steven Cromwell, a 43-year-old father of two, who was deliberately murdered by a homicide bomber from Arafat's terrorist group "Al-Aksa brigades":

Steven Cromwell, 43 Father of 2 Murdered by a Palestinian terrorist
On January 5, 2003, Steven Arthur Cromwell, 43, of Ghana was one of 22 people killed when two suicide bombers blew themselves up on a pedestrian mall in Tel Aviv's Naveh Sha'anan neighborhood near the old central bus station.

Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack, which apparently was assisted by Islamic Jihad.

Steven arrived in Israel four years ago with his wife, Sarah. The couple have two small children, who live in southern Ghana. Steven worked as a cleaner in Israel.

Veronica, Steven's sister, said that her brother had a great deal of sympathy for people, adding that he was a kind-hearted and generous man. "I don't know how I can continue to live now," she said.

Steven had gone shopping for fish at the market near the old central bus station, and was on his way home when the bombing took place. A friend of his, Joe, told how he last saw Steven. "Steven was shopping. I left 5 minutes before him. He told me that he was about to catch the bus to go home."

Steven Cromwell was buried in Ghana. He is survived by his wife and two children.

The Al-Aksa brigades are part of Fatah, an umbrella group of Palestinian terrorists that report to Yasser Arafat (see the Palestine page for more details).
