Israeli court rejects US activist's family lawsuit

• AP

An Israeli court ruled Tuesday that the military was not at fault for killing a U.S. activist crushed by an army bulldozer during a 2003 demonstration, rejecting a lawsuit filed by her parents.

The bulldozer driver has said he didn't see 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, a pro-Palestinian activist who was trying to block the vehicle's path during a demonstration in the Gaza Strip against the military's demolition of Palestinian homes.

Mike will make any excuse for those barbaric cultists. If he would get Benjamin Netanyahu's dick out of his mouth long enough maybe he would realize this. Israel is a flat out terrorist organization.

After 15 hearings and testimony from 23 witnesses and the verdict reached it should be an indication who was in the wrong. Rachel Corrie went into Raifah, Gaza hoping to die and she got her wish.

The area Corrie operated in was a combat zone and (despite being warned by Israeli troops not to enter the area) she and her ISM cohorts knew the risks going into this situation. In reality all Corrie was was a human shield for Gazans involved in terrorist activities. The place she met her untimely demise were abandoned homes that masked tunnels used by Gaza terrorists to smuggle arms and munitions into Israel that were used to kill or maim innocent Israeli citizens.

That is the modus operandi of the International Solidarity Network that she volunteered for. The group places activists to block Israeli activities (like bulldozing homes) geared to protect Israel while defending the country's enemies.

Sure, the Israeli military didn't see that young woman protester before they crushed her, just as the Israeli military didn't see the American flag flying on the USS Liberty when it attacked that ship and killed US sailors.    

I'll sell Israel guns, rockets, medicine, and Slinkys, at a profit, but I'll be damned in Hell before I'll lift a finger to help them.
