A little over a month before the September 11, 2001 suicide attacks by Islamic extremists on the United States of America another group of religious fundamentalists murdered fifteen people including 7 children and injured 130 in a suicide bombing at the Sbarro pizzeria in downtown Jerusalem. The murderer concealed the bomb in a guitar case.

The responsibility for the killing was claimed by both Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The reason for the murder was that the victims were Jewish. It had nothing to do with the occupation by Israel of lands gained in the 1967 Six Day War because both groups openly maintain that they seek to destroy Israel and to kill Jews.

Frimet and Arnold Roth are the parents of one of the 15 who died in the Sbarro pizzeria - Malki z"l. They have established The Malki Foundation in her memory and to provide home help for families with disabled children of all races and religions.
