Frimet Roth is the mother of Malki Roth, who died in the Sbarro pizzeria bombing in Aug 2001. Here she describes and harshly criticizes (and psychoanalyzes) an apparently small organization of bereaved Israelis and Palestinians who express sympathy and understanding for the killers of their children (or at least the Israelis do).

What outrageous though is the support and favorable publicity that the organization, called Parents Circle Family Forum, received from the European Union. It seems so glib and condescending. It's like they're saying: "Yes, we understand that you are angry and demand action from the PA (and the EU which funds it) - but listen to these people, who are so nuanced and deep".
