The Jewish Week has published portraits of Israelis murdered by Jew-hating terrorists in 2005. It is the first in a two-part series. Not all of the victims are Jews, but all paid the price for being in the Jewish homeland. I will list their names and ages:
Staff Sgt. Yosef Atia-21, Nissim Arbiv-26, Gideon Rivlin-50, Dror Girizi-30, Hertzl Shlomo-51, Ibrahim Kahili-46, Ivan Shmilov-53, Munam Abu Sabia-33, Ofer Tiri-23, Oded Sharon-36, Ayala-Haya Abukasis-17, Aryeh Nagar-37, Ronen Reuvenov-30, Yael Orbach-28, Yitzhak Buaglo-40, Odelia Hubara-26, Staff Sgt. Dan Talasnikov-21, Bi Shude-46, Sgt.-Maj. Avi Karouchi-(young, but no age given), Yevgeny Reider-28, Avihai Levy-17, Aviad Mansour-16, Julia Voloshin-31, Cpl. Moshe Maor-(young, but no age given), Nofar Horowitz-16, Rachel Ben Abu-16, Anya Lifshitz-50, Dana Galkowicz-22.
Reading this article brought tears to my eyes. How many of you have children that are these ages, or spouses, or brothers or sisters? Will they ever stop killing us? It seems not.
If anyone knows the families of any of these victims please send them my condolences.
I will post part 2 next week.
