Today's New York Times carries a review of a film called "Hot House "
that goes inside Israeli prisons and examines the lives of
Palestinian prisoners. We're not recommending the film or the review .
But we do want to share our feelings with you about the beaming
female face that adorns the article. You can see it here.
The film is produced by HBO. So it's presumably HBO's publicity
department that was responsible for creating and distributing a
glamor-style photograph of a smiling, contented-looking young woman
in her twenties to promote the movie.
That female is our child's murderer. She was sentenced to sixteen
life sentences or 320 years which she is serving in an Israeli jail.
Fifteen people were killed and more than a hundred maimed and injured
by the actions of this attractive person and her associates. The
background is here.
Neither the New York Times nor HBO are likely to give even a moment's
attention to the victims of the barbarians who destroyed the Sbarro
restaurant in Jerusalem and the lives of so many victims. So we would
be grateful if you would pass along this link to some pictures of our
daughter whose name was Malki. She was unable to reach her twenties -
Hamas saw to that.
Though she was only fifteen years old when her life was stolen from
her and from us, we think Malki was a beautiful young woman, living a
beautiful life. We ask your help so that other people - far fewer
than the number who will see the New York Times, of course - can know
about her. Please ask your friends to look at the pictures - some of
the very few we have - of our murdered daughter.

And remind them of what the woman in the Israeli prison - the woman
smiling so happily in the New York Times - said last year. "I'm not
sorry for what I did. We'll become free from the occupation and then
I will be free from prison."
With so many voices demanding that Israel release its terrorist
prisoners, small wonder she's smiling.
With greetings from Jerusalem,
Frimet and Arnold Roth
On behalf of Keren Malki
