Rachel Corrie Cantata, World Premiere

I was horrified to receive this unwelcome email appeal.
I was more horrified to read its contents. A supporter of Palestinian terror is being elevated to sainthood in London.
Rachel Corrie, a member of ISM which assists, among others, the activities of Hamas not only has a West End play in her name. Now she is being 'honored' with a cantata and a 'distinguished' rollcall of artists and politicians will attend the world premier....

On behalf of all Israeli victims of Palestinian terror, may I scream out in pain and sadness in the memory of the other Rachels ?
Rachel Levy, aged 17, blown up by a Palestinian suicide killer outside a grocery store.
Rachel Levi, aged, 19, shot by a Palestinian while waiting for a bus.
Rachel Gavish, killed while celebrating Passover at the Park Hotel with her family.
Rachel Charhi, blown up at a Tel Aviv cafe by a Palestinian bomber. She leaves 3 kids.
Rachel Shabo, murdered with her three children in her home by a Palestinian gunman.
And finally, 16 year old RACHEL THALER. She was blown up at a pizza parlour by another Palestinian suicide killer on 16th February 2002.
Rachel Thaler was born in London, yet nobody has put on a play about her. Her grandparents still live in London, yet no politicians or anyone from the arts, have expressed condolences or attempted to raise the issue of Palestinian terror in her name. No British journalist has approached her mother, Ginette, to write about the martyrdom of Rachel Thaler.
No rallies, no plays, no cantatas, for the Jewish Rachels.
Rachel Thaler's parents allowed the donation of their murdered daughters organs for transplant.
Rachel Corrie's parents traveled to Ramallah to receive a plaque from corrupt arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat for the services of their daughter to the Palestinian cause.
The name of the Corrie concert is 'The Skies are Weeping'.
They are indeed! The injustice of it all makes angels weep.

It not only makes angels weep, but also the heart of God, who will one day take vengeance on all the enemies of Israel who have done such atrocities and injustices. On that day there will be no appeal to the pronounced verdict, for there is no court higher to appeal to and it will be absolutely just, but woe to those found standing before the Judge of the Universe to face the awful judgment of a Holy God who says, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay".
It makes me weep also. -- Ed.
