During Monday's protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance at Columbia University, Michelle Malkin snapped this photo of a homemade sign:
...Brendan Cooney of the anti-war site Counterpunch reported Tuesday that the poster featuring Shiri's photo was made by 30-year-old Manhattan lawyer David Zucker....
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs describes the murderous act that took Shiri's life:
Shiri Negari, 21, of Jerusalem, was one of 19 people killed in a suicide bombing at the Patt junction in Egged bus no. 32A traveling from Gilo to the center of Jerusalem.
The terrorist boarded the bus at 7:50 A.M. at the stop in Beit Safafa, an Arab neighborhood opposite Gilo, and almost immediately detonated the large bomb which he carried in a bag stuffed with ball bearings. The blast destroyed the front half of the bus, packed with people on their way to work and schoolchildren. Of the 19 victims, 17 were residents of the Gilo neighborhood; 74 people were injured.
Why has Shiri's death affected so many people? Edgar Allen Poe once explained:
"Of all melancholy topics, what, according to the universal understanding of mankind, is the most melancholy?"
Death was the obvious reply.
"And when," I asked, "is this most melancholy topic most poetical?"
From what I have already explained at some length, the answer, here also, is obvious -- "When it most closely allies itself to Beauty: the death, then, of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world ..."And so it is with that "rare and radiant maiden" whose beautiful face haunted Ahmadinejad at Columbia.

A student told his professor he was going to "Palestine" to "fight for freedom, peace and justice,"Orwellian leftist code words that mean "murder Jews."
The enemy is just who they are...
The man or women on the street know them and how to end it.
Our leaders? They could care less.
It is they whom I hold in the greatest contempt and loathing.
All this innocent blood shed...
Innocents and our handcuffed Warriors alike.
All so the “elite” can put a few more dollars or Shekels in their numbered bank accounts.
Lord we really need your intercession.
What a beautiful young woman. I hope her death haunts the Islamofascists as long as they stay on earth before they are dropped straight into Hell!
Don't hold your breath. I saw a video a month ago of 100 islamic men casually beating a pretty young woman to death. These are not men, they are dark agents.
May the Lord of Heaven Avenge this Murdered Girl.
However, I did see a Youtube tape of a young Iranian girl BEATING UP an old hag from the “morals police” and getting into a getaway car. Good for her! She really socked it to the old witch!
Until the people of Iran stand up against him, it will only get worse. It will be like Cuba, and all the Iranians will start to come to the US.
I saw that too, it was a riot—I just hope that really was a morals policewoman! The video tickled me pink; then I had to go and read the comments section, ugh!
I know Ahmadinejad could not care less about her, but you’d think there might be a leftist or two who could be moved! Bless this lovely woman and may she have found peace in Heaven.
The girl had guts! Good for her!
