Rachel Corrie Died for Her Parentsí Sins
PJMedia.com ^ | 9-3-12 | Abraham H. Miller

Posted on 09/04/2012 9:13:44 AM PDT by Houmatt

After a lengthy trial, an Israeli court found that the death of International Solidarity Movement activist Rachel Corrie was an accident. Rachel Corrie’s death was an accident, but it was not a tragedy. The tragedy is to be seen in the deaths of all the other Rachels — there are about a dozen of them — and the hundreds of other innocents who died at the hands of the people Rachel Corrie was trying to protect. Rachel Corrie was a willing and active accomplice helping people bent on committing mass murder. If her intended victims were not Jews, the world would not be beatifying her as some sort of saintly peace activist.

The entire Rachel Corrie episode is an encounter with the absurd. Corrie joined the anarchist International Solidarity Movement (ISM), which takes naïve leftists like Corrie and puts them in dangerous situations with the hope that their death or injury will make them poster children for the Palestinian cause. The ISM does not support a two-state solution. The only outcome it envisages to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict is the destruction of the Jewish state and, of course, with it, the Jews. The ISM makes no secret of its goals and aspirations. When Corrie signed on to go to the war zone known as Gaza and stand in front of Israeli bulldozers that were destroying tunnels and homes being used to smuggle and store arms and munitions designed to kill Jews, she knew she was helping mass murderers.

The parents, as well as Rachel deserve to fall flat.

I understand the verdict as the Corries case was always pretty thin.

A “REAL” Feminist would always support the only country inthe middle east that doesn;t strip away the freedoms of fellow females... Oh wait that would mean that Saint Pancake would have had to support Israel, that would be if she were a real feminist.

Rachael should get the Darwin Century Award. No really. If stupid people want to die don’t stand in their way as the bulldozer passes over them.

Rachel Corrie died because she was STUPID.

Happens to STUPID people all the time. They even give out the Darwin Award for those that shuffled off to meet God in a particularly STUPID fashion.

I wonder if she won it, or was even a contender? she should have been.

So much passion for anti-Israel fascism. Must be a cultural inheritance.

I went to IHOP last week and asked for The Rachel Corry Special. I got pancakes, eggs and sausage.

No joke.

Her parents' "sins" related here all happened after their daughter's death and were reactions to it.

But don't let anything stand in the way of repeating the same stupid pancake jokes another dozen times.

Clearly, the Corries are trying to expiate their own guilt. It is as if through speaking engagements and appearance at cinema and stage performances about their daughter, the Corries have not only helped perpetuate the myth of Saint Rachel, the peace activist, but also absolved themselves of any responsibility for their daughter’s death.

The Corries have no guilt over their daughter's death, in fact they are enjoying it. They get to play the victim and are the center of attention at every one of their Liberal cocktail parties which are every Liberal's wet dream.

Liberal are soulless narcissist. The Death/suffering of others, even their own offspring doesn't upset them in the least. Instead of guilt or sorrow at the loss of their daughter, they instead get to convince themselves that they are so superior and enlightened because they sacrificed for the cause.

I am thinking her parent’s “sins” were that they may be the reason she turned out to be a flaming lib.

Quote: "What parents encourage their daughter to go into a war zone to stand before bulldozers that are trying to protect innocent people by destroying tunnels and buildings used to transfer munitions for suicide bombers? What parents encourage their child to join an anarchist organization that thrives on placing the naïve in harm’s way while lusting after the inevitable and ensuing propaganda benefit from their death and injury? Did the Corries hate Jews more than they loved their child?"

I think you have a pancake for a brain.

Those are questions. Speculation. Not facts.

We certainly don't know that the Corries "encouraged" Rachel to stand in front of a bulldozer. We don't know that they "lusted" after "the propaganda benefits" of their daughter's death when she left for the Middle East.

There's something pretty damn stupid and offensive about such speculations. Do you really expect they'd simply join in all the moronic pancake jokes about their dead daughter?

Without agreeing with their actions and beliefs, I don't attack or revile them for natural human reactions to grief.

I suppose the two Corrie parents would be thrilled if their two nieces also get themselves killed in a stupid way. I wish there was some sort of law to try those two morons for sending their daughter to a place where she the chances of getting killed were very high.
