Rachel, Rachel

While the family of Rachel Corrie sues Israel and the Caterpiller Company, lgf mourns for:
Rachel Levy (17, blown up in a grocery store);
Rachel Levi (19, shot while waiting for the bus);
Rachel Gavish (killed with her husband, son and father while at home celebrating a Pessah meal);
Rachel Charhi (blown up while sitting in a Tel Aviv cafe, leaving three young children);
Rachel Shabo (murdered with her three sons aged 16, 13 and five, while at home).

For whom do you mourn? A notorious peacenik who willingly and illegaly enters a war zone and gets squashed by a bulldozer, or the innocents listed above who were just trying to live their daily lives?
