Since Rosh Hashanah 2000, Palestinian terrorists and militants have killed more than 600 people in Israel. The victims have ranged in age from less than a year to more than 80.
They have been Israeli, American, Arab, Chinese, Thai and more. They have included soldiers, tourists, students, grandmothers, and members of the same family. The Israelis ranged from new immigrants to fifth-generation Jerusalemites.
The deaths have occurred at a bat mitzvah party, a Pesach seder, a pizzeria, a college campus, a discotheque, a café, a home, an Army outpost and on the street. Their deaths have occurred in virtually all parts of Israel, from big cities to lonely rural areas, from bus stops to the buses themselves.
What we can do - what we must do - is remember them. To that effect, we at the Jerusalem Post Internet Department have created a living memorial to these casualties of war. On the following pages - and it is heartbreaking to see how many pages it takes - are the original Jerusalem Post articles reporting the terror attacks that caused their deaths. At the bottom of each article is a list of each of the victims - including those who died in subsequent days or weeks. Click on each name and the picture of the person who was killed will pop up.
As the Palestinian campaign of terror against Israel continues into its third year, we hope this living memorial to its victims honors their memory.
