Another day, another precious life lost.
By “precious”, I really mean precious. A caring, sweet person at the store buying groceries for her grandparents.
By “lost”, I really do not mean lost.
I mean taken. Deliberately and with the most evil of intentions.
Two terrorists looked in to these gentle eyes..and stabbed her.
Even if they did it because she happened to live in her indigenous lands – claimed by the terrorists as their own – how is this brutal murder justified?
Alas, this was not the reason. The reason they stabbed Shlomit to death is because they saw a Jew. A creature they have been taught are the sons and daughter of apes and pigs. The same creature the Quran relates will hide behind stones and trees – until the stones and trees will say “O Muslims, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”
Such creatures are not worthy of living at all, let alone living in what they see as their rightful lands since their ancestors colonized them all those years ago.
These were not “lone wolves” holding extreme views. These were “martyrs” deserving of praise from none other than Fatah, the party of Mahmoud Abbas, our so-called “peace partner.”

Shlomit is gone now. There is no turning back.
She will never get married, nor have children, nor her own grandchildren to one day fetch groceries for her.
Her smiling face will look like this forever. Frozen in time.
It is too painful to bear.
The very least we can do is recognize the goodness represented by Shlomit and try to emulate it – while recognizing the evil of her murderers and fight it with everything we have.
