Words like martyr are used all too loosely these days. If there ever was one, Rachel was a martyr for justice and human dignity in Palestine/Israel. And as hard as it is to state this publicly, Rachel's blood is on our hands for having supported the Israelis' brutal occupation of Palestine.

    We will never forget Rachel, the martyr for justice, the continuing violence of Israeli state and its ever-growing homophobia over the inhabitants. May Rachel rest in peace, and may God give us peace in this world.
