Shmuel-Dani z"l
I wish you could read Hebrew. The letters "z"l" are a transliteration of an abbreviation - "zikhrono levrakha" - meaning, "may his memory be a blessing." At this site (in Hebrew), there is a picture of Shmuel Dani, a 27-year-old who was killed in the war against terror. If you read through the site, from his wife Einav's eulogy, to the words and poems of nieces, nephews, relatives, friends, and strangers, you will find words of encouragement, of love, of sympathy, of strength. Of hope.

You won't find a single word of hatred, or of a desire for revenge.

This is who we are, World. These are the Jews. This is Israel.
