The massacre: On August 9, 2001, a Jordanian woman, Ahlam Tamimi, escorted a young Palestinian Arab male from Ramallah to Jerusalem by bus and taxi. Accustomed to dressing in traditional fashion, both disguised themselves to resemble tourists. She walked him from the Old City’s Damascus Gate into the Israeli capital’s commercial center. There, minutes after she rushed away to safety, he detonated the guitar case slung across his shoulder inside the crowded Sbarro pizzeria. Fifteen persons were murdered. 130 others were injured, many severely. A young mother remains hospitalized in a permanent vegetative state to this day. Among the dead were two U.S. citizens: Malki Roth, 15, and Shoshana Hayman Greenbaum, 31, a visitor from New Jersey, recently married and pregnant with her first child.
