Nine years since the Sbarro terror attack

On Thursday night, I attended a meeting with Arnold Roth. As we went around the table introducing ourselves, you all should have seen the look on people's faces who didn't know him when Arnold said, "I'm here because my daughter was murdered in a terror attack." It's like a kick in the gut, and you (and I) can only imagine how it hit Arnold, and his wife Frimet, nine years ago.

The Sabbath, the 20th day of the Jewish month of Av, was the 9th anniversary of the Sbarro terror attack. Arnold and Frimet's daughter Malki was murdered along with fourteen other people HY"D (may God avenge their blood). Arnold has a brief message to mark the occasion here.

The video below was posted three years ago (not by me) on the occasion of the anniversary of the Sbarro terror attack. It is very difficult to watch, and I don't suggest that it should be viewed by children, even though seven of the fifteen people murdered in Sbarro were children.

Let's go to the videotape.

Y'hi zichrom baruch (may their memory be blessed).

9/11 was a month later. Anyone want to try to argue that there was no connection?

I would have asked David Horovitz of the Jerusalem Post to have raised in his interview with the British Ambassador Tom Phillips the Sbarro terror case. If you want a single reason why Israel must not open the Gaza border, the memory of those murdered is the justification for it. What happened especially to the children must never be allowed to happen again. Sorry but the convenience of the Palestinians takes a backseat to making sure Jewish children can grow up in safety in their own country.

It may be nine years for the world but for the families and the people of Israel its a memory as vivid as yesterday and will never be forgotten.

may I humbly contradict, it was the political negligence mixed with overconfidence before the security wall that enabled such atrocities. The guilty are the Peres, Rabins, Nethanyahus. Only Arik too the decision to build and separate.
