Nine years after the Sbarro massacre (An essay in today’s Jerusalem Post by Frimet Roth, the mother of Malka Chana Roth)

Frimet Roth, the mother of Malka Chana Roth – the 15 year old young girl murdered in the terrorist attack 9 years ago at the Jerusalem Sbarro (the subject of our previous post) – has written a poignant essay in today’s Jerusalem Post.

It’s been nine years since my daughter Malki was murdered in the suicide bombing of Jerusalem’s Sbarro restaurant and terrorism denial is still rampant.

Foreign diplomats may still preface their complaints against Israel with the formulaic  “Israel has some genuine security concerns and they have to be met.” But after that obligatory line, most feel free to attack Israel with no holds barred.

Some of Israel’s home-grown critics don’t even bother with such political correctness. Our security is no longer a justified concern in their view and they have no compunction about saying so. Suicide bombers? Intifada? Israeli terror victims? Not in their history books.
