The Forgotten Rachels



London from which as the Holocaust grew and raged in fury decisions were made to close Israel to the Jews, from which came the orders to disarm the Jews living in remote villages surrounded by arabs across Israel to prepare the way for their massacre. London which tore away as much of Israel as it could to give to the arabs, on whose throne a Nazi sympathizer briefly sat has a new play.

London, from which Jews were twice expelled. London where Jews were stoned and burned at the coronation of Richard the Lionheart. Shakespeare's London where the story of a Jew held hostage to give a pound of flesh became the story of an evil Jew demanding a pound of flesh. London where Dickens equally repugnant anti-semitic stereotype Fagin roamed the streets in search of gentile boys to corrupt, hosts another anti-semitic play now.

Much as the Passion Plays depicted the evil Jews torturing and tormenting Jesus, in the footsteps of the Merchant of Venice and Oliver Twist (which Dickens staged as a theatrical production playing the part of Fagin himself with vehemence and spite before perishing of a heart attack); a new play called 'My Name is Rachel Corrie' depicts the evil Jews torturing the saint of western terrorist sympathizers, Rachel Corrie depicted below burning the American and Israeli flags at a Hamas rally.



Like all anti-semitic stories, like all blood libels, the story will be simple. Rachel Corrie was an idealistic young student working for peace. Based on her diaries, the play will make no mention of her support and affection for terrorists that appears in her diary. The photos will show her westernized with blond hair and smiling gently into the camera, not with her face contorted with hate in a burqa. After all it does not do to show up saints for the rabid anti-semites they really are.

The true victims, those murdered by Rachel Corrie's comrades will not be remembered at that play. The true victims, those murdered by the weapons smuggled through tunnels that Rachel Corrie fought to keep open, will not be paid tribute to by the somber faces and fat jowls sitting as their ancestors sat while the Jews on stage killed Jesus, demanded their pound of flesh and abused poor Oliver. These are the other Rachels. London may not remember them but G-D surely will.

1. My Name is Rachel Levy (Israeli girl age 17, blown up in a grocery store)


On Friday afternoon, Rachel's mother, Avigail, asked her to go to the supermarket to buy some things for the Shabbat meals. 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. 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.

2. My Name is Rachel Thaler (Israeli girl aged 16, blown up in a pizzeria)


"Rachel Thaler had gone on Saturday night to the local Yuvalim Mall in Karnei Shomron with his brother, Lior. Since its opening six months ago, the mall has become a popular meeting place for local youth. Rachel, who suffered a critical head injury in the bombing, never regained consciousness. She died 12 days later."

3. My Name is Rachel Levi (Israeli girl aged 19, murdered while waiting for the bus)

She had been dropped off by her father near the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station, about an hour before she was killed. He said: "Adi, my older daughter, told me that the attack occured at a junction where Rachel used to be daily. We called her on her cell phone, but there was no answer. Rachel left behind her parents and two sisters. She was buried in Ashkelon

4. My Name is Rachel Gavish (killed with her husband and son while at home)


Rachel Gavish, 50, of Elon Moreh was one of four members of the Gavish family killed in Elon Moreh, when a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated the hilltop community near Nablus, burst into their home, and shot them shortly before 9 P.M. Rachel Gavish was buried in Elon Moreh alongside her family members. She is survived by her six children: Menashe (23), Yeshurun (2), Avigdor, (19), Tzofia (18), Leah (17), and Assaf (14)

5. My Name is Rachel Charhi (blown up while sitting in a cafe)


Rachel was a secretary at an accounting firm. Her daughter had often suggested she quit her job so as not to have to ride the busses, but Rachel told her not to worry. On the day of the attack, Rachel and Ben-Zion thought to dine in a different cafe but chose My Coffee Shop instead, since it was less crowded. Rachel was buried in the Yarkon cemetery in Tel-Aviv. She is survived by her husband Benzion, daughter Kinneret 14 and sons Ariel 13 and Barak 7.

6. My Name is Rachel Shabo (murdered with her three sons aged 5, 13 and 6 while sitting at home)

The terrorist first shot the mother, Rachel (top right), in the back. Then he shot Avishai, 5 (top, second from right), Zvika, 13 (bottom, second from right), and Neria, 16 (bottom, third from left), as well as a neighbor, Yosef Twito, who came to their aid. Rachel Shabo was buried in Itamar alongside her three sons.

When it comes to Jews, the world and self-hating Jewish have a tendency to lament the perpetrators not the victims, to make heroes of the murderers and those who held the murderer's hands and washed clean the blood on their hands and not the innocents whose blood they spilled; because those innocents are Jews and Jews on the London stage are condemned to be Shylock's, Fagin's and Sharon's. Let us remember and honor our dead because no one else will.

    May Rachel Corries name be remembered as the terrorist she was .
    May G-d have mercy on England for their hatred of their fellow man when he opens His judgement book.
    Brits you should be ashamed. Deeply ashamed of how low you have fallen. You the ancestors of Ephraim the son of Joseph. How dare you.

  3. there are always those who sympathize and empathize with evil, who are attracted and drawn to it

    when nations become drawn to excusing and supporting evil, it is a sign

    a definitive and distinctive sign of their corruption

    Those other Rachel deserve to be remembered of course, but can you do it, please, without demonizing Rachel Corrie?

    She doesn't deserve that.

    Without demonizing? she was a demon. Anyone who encourages the enemy to kill and murder is a demon.
    This girl spurred people on to do heinous acts by her words and deeds and encouragement.
    She is like the person who attended Nazi Bundt meetings but then will not take responsibility for the deaths that ensued worldwide.
    Actions have consequences.
    When you open your mouth things happen. When you support a cause you are an accomplice to its crimes.
    If you support something and its a success you take credit do you not?
    Then so must you take credit when what you support is evil or goes bad.
    The actions of Islam are not hidden in a corner where no one can see.
    The entire world can see the 9 11's , the Spanish train massacre, The Achille Lauros, the school massacres, the *honor* killings , the hangings, the mutilations, the murders, the duplicity of their talk. Is the world stupid?
    No, this is an open book for all to see and those who refuse to look are guilty.
    Those who will not learn the history of the pogroms, the murders of Jews and sabbath keepers in all generations are guilty of turning a blind eye to truth.
    And that blind eye is a willing blind eye.
    Those who accuse the victim are guilty.
    Those who will not stand up and say ENOUGH already are guilty.
    The bible teaches us that you Shall Not Stand Idle by the blood of your Brother.
    This isnt a call to revenge, however, for only God can take revenge. It is ,however, a call by God to not compromise with evil in any of its forms... To not accomodate it or stand up for it or voice its propaganda about.
    It is time for people to wake up and look around.
    To separate the evil from the good, the holy from the profane.
    The truth is out there if people are willing to put aside prejudice , put aside greed and lust and look at pure, PLAIN TRUTH.
    This world does not have much time left to repent of its evil.
    There is a God in heaven and he is going to judge the world for its actions one against the other.
    And that great and dreadful day of God is coming, make no mistake.
    It is time we began to first judge ourselves and our own actions in the light of what God says in his holy word rather than what propagandists and religious revisionists would have us believe.
    Each person must take responsibility and clean up his own house first.

  6. If the English are descended from Ephraim, then they'd be Jewish themselves; I'll let Eliyahu HaNavi clear that one up.

    So the British have Jewish blood on their hands. There will be a come-uppance, but I don't think it'll even nearly compare to what France, Germany, Spain, Russia, and Arabia will get. At least all those centuries when Jews were not allowed in Britain their attacks on us were limited to unsavory character depictions in a play, as opposed to an Inquisition.

    "I will cleanse [the nations of their wongdoings,] but for the [shedding of Jewish] blood I will not cleanse them; the L-rd dwells in Tzion." -Yoel 4:21
