Jerusalem (CNN) -- A 23-year-old American activist stands in front of an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza. The bulldozer drives over her, crushing her to death. These are the facts.
Rachel Corrie, along with colleagues from the International Solidarity Movement, was trying to prevent Israel from bulldozing homes in Rafah, close to the Egyptian border. Her activism cost her her life in March 2003.
A colleague said at the time, "Many times the bulldozer came up to us and buried us with dirt, but they always stopped."
Corrie's parents want to know the truth about their daughter's death, whether the killing was intentional and who is accountable.
Craig and Cindy Corrie's civil suit against Israel's defense ministry starts in Haifa, Israel, on Wednesday -- a court date that took years to reach.
"The more we found out, the more likely that the killing was intentional, or at least incredibly reckless," Craig Corrie said. "And, as a former soldier, I was even in charge of bulldozers in Vietnam... You're responsible to know what's in front of that blade, and I believe that they did."
The Israeli military carried out a month-long investigation, which found no Israeli soldier was to blame.
"The armored bulldozer crew involved in the incident did not see Ms. Corrie, who was standing behind the mound of earth, and was unable to see her or hear her voice," the military said.

The most obvious question being, "What the hell do you have to do to kill a freekin' bulldozer?"
Oops Rachel, you were on the wrong side. I feel for her parent’s sadness, but their daughter chose her own fate.
Well the picture in the paper showed the scene real well
Papa’s rig was buried in the local motel
The desk clerk said he saw it all real clear
He never hit the brakes, and he was shifting gears.
Patron saint of pancakes.
Momma was an grader, Poppa was a crane...
“Parents demand answers from Israel in bulldozer death”
How’s about; the dumb biotch didn;t GTFO of the way, and expected combatants in a war zone to operate around her.
GIMME THEM PANCAKES!
The girl’s parents and that hideous school she attended killed her.
Mr. and Mrs. Corrie, Rachel is 100% responsible for her death. Glad I could help.
Nicely done HaikuGuy
I agree that sad as it is this woman made a decision and it cost her her life
“You’re responsible to know what’s in front of that blade, and I believe that they did.”
I believe they did too. A bunch of dirt, a house and a liberal dumbf*ck raised by a couple of hippies.
They should read a book.
Of course it was intentional. She stood in front of an armored bulldozer while it was moving.
If you jump on the train tracks and get run over, that’s intentional as well.
maybe Rachel Corrie was looking up into the sky watching the paper representing our flag burn?
How about this, when you arm wrestle with a bulldozer,,,you lose.
Rachel Corrie was caught FLAT FOOTED
Toyota denies any responsibility.
